2: Louie Gohmert
Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) makes yet another appearance on this list, this time for asserting that gun control will somehow lead to #$%$.
During a conference call with anti-gay activist Rick Scarborough, Gohmert laid out an absurd slippery-slope argument against limiting magazine capacity to 1o rounds. “Once you make it 10, then why would you draw the line at 10? What’s wrong with nine? Or 11? And the problem is once you draw that limit,” Gohmert said, “It’s kind of like marriage when you say it’s not a man and a woman anymore, then why not have three men and one woman, or four women and one man, or why not somebody has a love for an animal?”
Right Wing Watch has audio of Gohmert’s rambling warning.
The best reaction to Gohmert’s latest theory probably belongs to The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, who asked the question that many have wondered about the radical right: “What is it with you people and the animal-f**ing?”
