Congressman Gohmert Proposes Invading Mexico



Texas Representative and general idiot Louie Gohmert has done it again. In an interview with News Talk Florida’s Dan Maduri, he called not only for the impeachment of Attorney General Eric Holder, but for the United States to invade Mexico in order to stop the flow of “radical Islamic terrorism” in to the United States.

Hear it for yourself:

While Gohmert was referencing an incomplete recollection of General Pershing’s response to Pancho Villa’s border attacks, the failure comes when you realize that after a year of pursuit, the US Army failed to capture the Mexican rebel. Not really the right tone that the congressman wished to set. And he is calling for it to be set upon unarmed children to boot.

But most disturbing is the fact that he called for a military force to enter Mexico at all. How would he respond were it on the other foot, with the Grupo Aeromóvil de Fuerzas Especiales entering into the United States and killing US children in an attempt to stop “Islamic Terrorism?”

Some right-wing fundamentals have been calling for the invasion of Mexico for several years. Even on-again/off-again wannabe coup d’etat leader Larry Klayman has called for the invasion, citing it is important to invade and conqueror our neighbor to the south because “Mexico is of a much greater vital interest to America than, say, Libya.” And this idea has been brewing on the right-wing for a very long time.
