Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Guns; Islamophobia.]

"[The Second Amendment] is for our protection and the founders' quotes make that very, very clear and including against a government that would run amok. We've got some people who think Sharia Law should be the law of the land, forget the Constitution. But the guns are there, that Second Amendment is there, to make sure all of the rest of the Amendments are followed."—Tea Party Star and Republican Congressman from Texas Louie Gohmert, who, as usual, has no idea what the fuck he is talking about, because he lives in some sinister fantasyland where there's apparently a threat greater than zero of the US government adopting Sharia Law.

Another perfect example of someone who feels afraid, but is in fact in absolute no actual danger as a result of his invented fear.
