Today, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, went on yet another anti-trans rant, this time at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority conference in Washington, D.C. The congressman spent most of the time criticizing sex reassignment surgery, saying that the practice will “destroy people’s lives.” “Now this administration says, ‘We’re going to have the V.A. do sex change operations.’ Really?!” he asked. “Do we not have enough veterans committing suicide without you increasing that 20 times? Enough is enough! We have to stand up for... MORE >

Earlier today, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, put a new spin on his “gay island” story, arguing on the House floor that the push for LGBT rights is wrong because we would never choose to send gay couples or gay animals into space to start a new colony like in the Matt Damon movie “The Martian.” He said that if lawmakers had to decide “whether humanity would go forward or not” in case of an imminent asteroid collision by putting people in a “space ship that can go, as Matt Damon did in the movie, plant a colony somewhere, we can have humans survive this...

Earlier this year, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, attributed the popularity of Sen. Bernie Sanders to the fact that “we let some of the hippies from the ‘60s” start “teaching the teachers” in universities. Gohmert brought up the subject again in an interview Monday with Armed America Radio’s Mark Walters, where he explained that “a lot of the hippies and the troublemakers from the ‘60s and the early ‘70s” figured out that instead of “blowing up the Pentagon or blowing up police cars,” they could just become teachers. This... MORE >

Today, as thousands of people gathered in front of the Supreme Court to voice their support of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a somewhat smaller crowd organized by Tea Party Patriots held forth against the DAPA/DACA actions and urged the Senate not to confirm President Obama’s Supreme Court nominee Merrick Garland. We counted about 20 people at the Tea Party Patriots event at 11 am, shortly before the event’s speeches were scheduled to begin: The heavily outnumbered protesters carried signs saying “#NoHearingsNoVotes,” “#...

Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, a prominent endorser of Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign, warned last month that if the next president allows any sort of path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants living in the United States, “the republic will be lost” because new citizens won’t understand the “responsibility to be properly educated before you vote” and thus will “vote for whoever will give them the most welfare.” Gohmert made the comments in a March 31 interview with Baltimore talk radio hosts Sean Casey and Frank Luber. Casey asked... MORE >

In a radio interview yesterday, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, defended North Carolina’s new anti-LGBT law, which bars transgender people from using restrooms consistent with their gender identity and prevents localities like Charlotte from enacting measures protecting LGBT people from discrimination, by insisting that it would prevent boys from going into women’s restrooms. Citing his own childhood, the congressman said that boys would be unable to resist the temptation to see girls while they are in the bathroom. Gohmert recounted to “Washington Watch” host and Family... MORE >

Last week, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, sat in for Tony Perkins on the “Washington Watch” radio program, where he chatted with conservative attorney Ken Klukowski about the supposed attacks on religious freedom in the U.S. After warning that liberals are trying to stop Christians from practicing their faith openly in America, he repeated his claim that the Supreme Court justices declared themselves God when they handed down last year’s marriage equality ruling: Last summer, the Supreme Court in the same-sex marriage case did what they have been building towards since the...
