Anti-Gay Texas Lawmaker Warns of Terrorist Babies

Post submitted by Dan Rafter, Former HRC Associate Director of Communications

We shared with you yesterday video of Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert blasting the Ninth Circuit’s ruling that Prop 8 was unconstitutional, comparing advances in LGBT equality to a fundamental disrespect of the “sperm and egg coming together.”

Not surprisingly, his reaction to Prop 8 isn’t the only thing that has raised a few eyebrows. Check out this video courtesy of Media Matters from 2010, in which Gohmert rails against immigration by warning of how “loopholes” in federal law was allowing terrorists to “raise and coddle” terrorist babies who would seek to “destroy our way of life.”

Tweet at Rep. Gohmert and let him know his extremist views against LGBT Americans, immigrants, and others are out-of-step with reality and public opinion. You can tweet him at @replouiegohmert or check out his Facebook page. Highlights on the page include his response to President Obama’s State of the Union address and his praise for the Susan G. Komen Foundation's (now reversed) decision to halt grants to Planned Parenthood.
