Rep. Louis Gohmert (R-TX) never fails to amuse.
During a hearing in the House Judiciary Committee on the Comcast-Time Warner merger, Gohmert floated the theory that while Comcast launched Al Jazeera America, the company refused to let The Blaze purchase a network it owned.
“Al Gore was pushing the sale of Current TV, and Glenn Beck, the Blaze were trying to buy it. And it was reported that Al Jazeera wanted to get their Sharia law push into the United States, and they were willing to pay big bucks, regardless of whether they had oil and carbon all over the money,” Gohmert began.
“They were willing to pay big dollars but they wouldn’t do the deal unless Comcast was willing to keep them in its list of networks provided. So it was reported Comcast agreed, so Al Gore got all that oil and carbon based money. And then, that kept Glenn Beck off the air. Of Comcast,” he continued.
The problem with stupid people is that they don’t know that they’re stupid because if they did know they were stupid they wouldn’t be stupid in the first place.
