Inspired by America’s Dumbest Congressman compares migrant children to D-Day invasion, demands ‘ships of war’ (Daily Kos 7/11/14).
“Even with $3.7 billion that’s requested, there’s no way for what’s being called for is going to stop the invasion that’s occurring. That’s why I’m hoping that my governor will utilize Article 1, Section 10, that allows a state that is being invaded — in our case more than twice as many just in recent months, more than twice as many than invaded France on D-Day with a doubling of that coming en route, on their way here now under Article 1, Section 10, the state of Texas would appear to have the right, not only to use whatever means, whether it’s troops, even using ships of war, even exacting a tax on interstate commerce that wouldn’t normally be allowed to have or utilize, they’d be entitled in order to pay to stop the invasion.” – Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) yesterday on the House floor
If those kids are D-Day troops trying to get ashore,
Then whose side does that mean you’re fighting for?
(I think you need another metaphor.)
