Rep. Louie Gohmert Comments on the Benhams, Compares Gay Rights Advocates to Nazis: VIDEO
Rep. Louie Gohmert referenced the anti-gay, anti-choice, anti-Muslim Benham brothers ("people that were going to be on the television show before it was canceled") today in a speech on the House floor denouncing the "intolerance" of gay rights advocates (my transcript):
"People that stand up and say you know I agree with the majority of Americans, I agree with Moses and Jesus, that marriage is between a man and a woman. Now all of a sudden people like me are considered 'haters, hatemongers, evil' which really is exactly what we've seen throughout our history going back to the days of the Nazi takeover in Europe. They would call people 'haters' and 'evil' and build up disdain for those people who held those opinions or religious views, or religious heritage. And then next came 'well those people are so evil and hateful let's bring every book that they've written or has to do with them and let's start burning the books cause we can't tolerate their intolerance...It's called projecting. Someone that has a characteristic - to divert condemnation on themselves they project their characteristic on someone whom they disagree."
