Today on “Sandy Rios in the Morning,” Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, said that the Obama administration’s prosecution of senior FIFA officials and investigations into law enforcement misconduct show that the administration is ignoring the threat of terrorism.
“We know with Nero, he allegedly fiddled while Rome burned,” Gohmert said. “America is being destroyed from within and instead of fiddling, this administration is going after people that don’t really make any difference to the ongoing of a free republic. It’s tragic.”
The Texas Republican criticized the Justice Department for “going after police forces all over the country,” adding: “This Department of Justice couldn’t find their rear end with both hands and yet they’re out there telling everybody else how they have to act.”
“This administration has coddled racism, reverse racism, all kinds of problems and discrimination against women,” Gohmert continued.
He also claimed that the administration is targeting “fantastic patriots” who “say this administration is allowing radicalized Islamists to get away with murder.”
“They will not go after the radicalized murderers, the potential radicalized murderers or the terrorists being led into the country. No, they will come after you,” he said.
Gohmert also floated the possibility that terrorists will smuggle a nuclear weapon across the supposedly porous southern border in “bails of marijuana.”
