Gohmert Warns Obama Is Letting Ebola Into the Country Because He Can’t Stand for People to Feel ‘Left Out’

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert has said some pretty ridiculous things before, especially about Obama, climate change, and America’s southern border.

His most recent anti-Obama political analysis, though, may well have been penned by a kindergartener.

It seems the reason Obama is refusing to close America’s southern border with Mexico – and stop the potentially deadly flow of Ebola-infected immigrants that he and fellow GOPers insist must actually exist – is because Obama does not want other people feeling ‘left out.’

“But this day in time, gee, we don’t want anybody to feel like they’re being left out, so therefore, the Democrats — some of my Democratic friends, including this president — they feel like we want everyone to feel included,” Gohmert told Newsmax host Steve Malzberg on Wednesday.  “So let’s don’t quarantine, let’s don’t close our borders.”

He added the only solution to stop Ebola in America is to close America’s borders down completely, which is what a responsible President would have already done, even if it did hurt other people’s feelings.

“Countries that recognize that they have an obligation to protect their people regardless of whether or not its politically correct have done just that,” Gohmert said. “We used to have quarantines of serious diseases that would kill people.”

The Texas politician further explained that he knew exactly why Obama was not stopping Ebola or ISIS from killing Americans. It was because he keeps talking about climate change instead.

“More deadly to this country than Ebola is climate change, more deadly than the Islamic state to [beheading victim] Thomas Foley is climate change,” Gohmert said, summarizing how he imagines Obama must think.

Gohmert then concluded, “So what you’re talking about being common sense in Washington, in the Washington area, is only sense.”

Well, at least Gohmert seemed to get that last part right.

    WTF is wrong with these people? Allowing something that could desimate a country? I hope this is the craziest thing I hear for a very long time! The only way to stop this insanity is to be sure to vote at least 60% of republicans out of every office they hold!
