Jeebus these fucking people . . . .
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) on Sunday called for mass firings at the Department of Justice because he believes that there is a "conspiracy" to destroy President Donald Trump.
According to the Texas congressman, former FBI Director James Comey was "lying" in his testimony last week when he alleged that Trump pressured him to drop an investigation related to Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. election.
"I believe I heard him say he did the memo [about possible obstruction of justice] then he talked with some of his colleagues," Gohmert insisted to Fox News host Julie Banderas. "We need to round up everybody he talked to because they were all conspiring against the president and all conspiring against their oath of office, conspiring against their own employment agreement."
Yes - because what better way is there to demonstrate to the American people and the rest of the free world that you and your ideologically-minded friends aren't totalitarian thugs by issuing a call to "round up everybody" who you, lacking any evidence whatsoever, are accusing of disloyalty and of being a participant in a "conspiracy" against the president of The United States?
And as far as demanding those "mass firings" of Drumpf's perceived conspirators at the Justice Department - btw it's what is known as a 'purge' in political science circles Mr. Gohmert - why only at the Justice Department? Why stop there? What about the other intelligence agencies? Gonna round up some CIA and National Intelligence folks too Congressman? How about some NSA and Department of Homeland Security folks while you're at it?
Isn't it conceivable that if there is indeed a massive conspiracy afoot, would it not be likely that there would be suspected traitors across all areas of the government and not just isolated solely to the Department of Justice? Wouldn't they be in the Congress and the Senate too? Of course -- but you and I dear readers know the real reason why Gohmert is only targeting his dangerous rhetoric at the DOJ -- it's because they are the ones who are presently working diligently at unearthing the Russian skeletons in Drumpf's and his gang's closets and they are the ones who when they find those skeletons, and they will, will be required by duty and by the constitution and the law of the land to file the charges for high crimes and misdemeanors thus precipitating the arduous, but necessary task of forcefully removing Drumpf from office.
And that brings us to the disturbing subject of the rounding up of people. Someone needs to put this little Texas twerp congress critter Louie Gohmert in a locked room with a group of Holocaust survivors, whom The Gadfly is supremely confident will familiarize his ignorant, red-state ass quite soberly of what happens when a rogue, fascist dictatorship, employing the full power of the state, turns it's hate and misguided vengefulness inward on it's own people.
Like The Gadfly said in a prior post -- it's going to be a long, hot, ugly and yes -- maddeningly stupid summer, and quite frankly, the whole sordid mess cannot reach it's foreordained conclusion soon enough.
