Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert Fighting Mad People Blaming Gun Deaths on Republicans

Republicans appear to be on the defensive after all the recent mass killings, while continuing to offer the same tired old excuses for the carnage - including “too many doors in buildings, Dr. Fauci and face masks, wokeness, women winning the right to vote, video games, Critical Race Theory, transgender bathrooms, abortions, and the end of slavery.” All this has Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert so upset, that he’s put out a video where he’s shouting at Democrats “How dare you? You think we don’t have hearts?” He went on to falsely claim most gun deaths occur in Democratically controlled states, when the opposite is actually true.

Not a surprising conclusion I suppose, especially coming from a guy who once suggested that all we really need to do to fight climate change, is simply “alter the Earth's orbit.” So no, Rep. Gohmert, it is not so much that we’re questioning whether or not you have a “heart.” It’s more like we’re questioning whether you have a “functioning brain.”

Of course, I don’t really believe Republicans actually lack “hearts.” What they really lack - is “empathy.” They’re folks who can look at a mass shooting and say “yeah, it’s kinda sad, but it didn’t happen to me, so I’m good.” In fact, we saw that very philosophy employed during the pandemic - when Republicans decided “the elderly ought to sacrifice themselves for the sake of the economy.”

Now, in all fairness, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick did inform Tucker Carlson after the shootings that "We can do a lot of things, and Texas has done a lot of things,” and he’s right. Why, he, Gov. Abbott, and the Republican legislature have done quite a lot. They’ve lied, they’ve taken more NRA cash, they’ve refused to accept any blame, and they’ve passed hateful legislation against trans kids. What else do folks want, anyway?

I hope that we vote the lot of them out in November. Although with the most recent redistricting where they added more republican safe districts and no new minority districts, it's going to be hard.

Yes Glenn, it’s going to be very difficult, but I hope with the televised hearings coming that some people will be moved from the dark side.

Yes, but Fox has announced they won't be covering the hearings, so I'm afraid we'll pretty much be preaching to the choir.
