You (Still) Can't Fix Stupid: Louie Gohmert Compares Minorities to Snail Darters and Various Lizards

So this happened: During a House Judiciary Committee hearing on a bill that would ban third parties from intervening in regulatory actions aimed at preventing discrimination on the basis of race, sex, national origin, or other protected characteristics, Tea Party idiot and Texas representative Louie 'Terror Babies' Gohmert mockingly dismissed Democrats concerns about discrimination by equating protecting the civil rights of minorities with protecting the rights of delta smelt, lesser prairie chicken, greater sage grouse and other insects. Ha, hilarious, Louie. Texas, we feel for you. Your tax dollars at work.

"There is nobody in this chamber who is more appreciative than I am for the gentleman from Tennessee and my friend from Michigan standing up for the rights of race, religion, national religion of the Delta Smelt, the snail darter, various lizards, the lesser prairie chicken, the greater sage grouse and so many other insects who would want someone standing for their religion, their race, their national origin and I think that’s wonderful."
