Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) took to the House Floor today to declare that President Obama is helping to start a “new Ottoman Empire,” as seen in his decisions to end the war in Iraq, which Gohmert said means losing the war, and to topple Muammar Gaddafi’s dictatorship in Libya. Gohmert warned that we are witnessing the “massive beginning of a new Ottoman Empire that President Obama can take great credit for.” “Wow look what he has helped do in the Middle East, a new Ottoman Empire,” Gohmert said, “thank you President Barack Hussein Obama.” Gohmert added that he didn’t know if Obama is or is not a Christian, adding, “what I do know is that he has helped jump-start a new Ottoman Empire.”

Fischer Warns the ‘Homosexual Lobby’ will soon allow Celebrations of Incest, Pedophilia and Bestiality: Why not? The American Family Association already allows celebration of intolerance, hatred, and bigotry.
Following up on his tweet from yesterday, American Family Association spokesman Bryan Fischer attacked the city of Berkeley for recognizing September 23rd as “Bisexual and Bi Visibility Day.” Fischer asked his Focal Point audience, “Will there be an incest day, will there be a pedophilia pride day, will there be a bestiality pride day, what’s coming?” Fischer said that because the “homosexual lobby” is treating “sexually aberrant behavior as normal” there is “simply no place to stop.” Last year, Fischer wondered why LGBT pride events have not honored Adolf Hitler or John Wayne Gacy.
