In the heat of the debate over the "don't ask, don't tell" repeal bill, which was eventually passed by the House Wednesday by a 250 to 175 margin, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) delivered a floor speech railing against overturning the military protocol on the grounds that allowing gay servicemembers to serve openly would be a threat to America's "existence."

Here are his comments, via ThinkProgress:

GOHMERT: To my friend who said that history would judge us poorly, I would submit if you would look thoroughly at history -- and I'm not saying it's cause and effect -- but when militaries throughout history of the greatest nations in the world have adopted the policy that "fine for homosexuality to be overt" -- you can keep it private and control your hormones fine, if you can't, that's fine too -- <span style='font-size: 17pt'>they're toward the end of their existence as a great nation.</span>
<span style="color: #990000"> <span style='font-size: 14pt'>BWA HA HA HA, nothing like a good case of RW homophobic rewriting of history. </span> </span>

<span style='font-size: 14pt'>Gohmert also strangely argued that the military was necessarily, and by its very nature, "inconsistent with American values."</span>

"It does not have freedom of speech, it does not have freedom of assembly, it does not have the freedom to express its love to those in the military the way you can out here, because it's an impediment to the military mission," Gohmert said, implying that the survey gauging the sentiments of soldiers was misleading because it had forced certain responses from respondents.

<span style="color: #990000"> <span style='font-size: 14pt'> Here, he is basically calling the entire Joint Chiefs Of Staff, AND the Secretary of Defense, all liars.

Were the hell does the Repiglican Party find these neanderthals????

The vase majority of our country has moved on from this homophobic point of view.

These old turds in the Repiglican Party, want to go back to the fifties, but opps, most of the flyover states, never moved beyond the fifties, you know, critical thinking skills are verboden in the Bible Belt, hence, their new school books of gross propaganda! </span> </span>

Historically, he is correct.
