Republican Clown Show Heads to Egypt to Undermine the United States (Video)

gohmert-bachmann-kingWhen I think of sending members of Congress to a foreign country on a diplomatic mission, I think of well-seasoned politicians who have a long standing history of compromise and bipartisanship.  Those who work well with their colleagues even when they have differing views on certain issues.

What I don’t think of is the posse of Michele Bachmann, Louie Gohmert and Steve King heading to Cairo, Egypt on some sort of “mission of diplomacy.”   

Because let’s face it, these are three of the most ridiculous members of Congress.  And by ridiculous I mean radically right-wing lunatics that only appeal to the furthest reaches of the Republican party.  These people make George W. Bush seem competent.

Yet there they went to Egypt to—support the U.S. policy against the recent brutal coup that overthrew the sitting Egyptian leader?

Oh no, they went there and praised the coup.  Even though the United States has publicly denounced the actions of the coup as extremely violent and brutal, so much so that aid to Egypt might be suspended.

But that apparently didn’t stop Larry, Moe and Curly from heading to Cairo to record a video praising the uprising and the brutal crackdown on the pro-Morsi protesters.

Because nothing quite says “We love freedom!” like praising a violent response to people protesting actions they disagree with, right?

And of course no major public appearance from Michele Bachmann would be complete without her making a complete fool of herself and trying to perpetuate some asinine conspiracy which has absolutely no truth behind it whatsoever.

Bachmann decided that apparently the Muslim Brotherhood was responsible for 9/11:

“We have seen the threat that the Muslim Brotherhood has posed around the world.  We stand against this great evil.  We remember who caused 9/11.  We remember who it was that killed 3,000 brave Americans.”

Does she?  Does she really? 

Because it sure as hell doesn’t sound like it.

But this trip goes to show the utter stupidity of these three individuals.  Three sitting members of Congress who took it upon themselves to go to Egypt, contradict United States foreign policy, then volunteered to make a propaganda video for a group which staged a violent coup and harshly punished those who opposed their actions.

When I read about stuff like this it makes me want to travel to the areas that vote these people into office and meet some of these buffoons who voted for them.

It’s amazing in this day and age imbeciles such as these three actually get elected to public office.  I understand the bar is set pretty low for members of Congress, but I never realized it was set this low.

But when I watch the video I can’t help but think to myself, “Holy crap, these people are absolutely insane.”

The sheer ignorance of these three to make fools of not only themselves, but to completely undermine the stance taken by the United States following the uprising in Egypt, is simply staggering.

Anyone who’s ever cast a single vote for any of these three clowns should be embarrassed, because I’m sure as heck embarrassed for you.
