Gohmert: Gays In Military Vulnerable To Terrorism Due To Massages

Continuing his battle against common sense, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has come up with a novel reason to oppose gays serving in the military. Speaking on the radio show "Point of View," Gohmert explained, "...if you're sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle... You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism." Gohmert cites historical precedent: gay Greeks gave massages and were defeated in war. How is it possible that this dunce was ever elected to anything? Watch:



GOHMERT: "I've had people say, 'Hey, you know, there's nothing wrong with gays in the military. Look at the Greeks.' Well, you know, they did have people come along who they loved that was the same sex and would give them massages before they went into battle. But you know what, it's a different kind of fighting, it's a different kind of war and if you're sitting around getting massages all day ready to go into a big, planned battle, then you're not going to last very long. It's guerrilla fighting. You are going to be ultimately vulnerable to terrorism and if that's what you start doing in the military like the Greeks did ... as people have said, 'Louie, you have got to understand, you don't even know your history.' Oh yes I do. I know exactly. It's not a good idea"

Gohmert's comments are just plain stupid.

Apparently there's a constituency for his stupidity.

He seems to know a lot about male on male massage, I would say he is clinically insane!

I don't know if he's insane. He's certainly not too bright. Gohmert is incapable of making sense.
