Louie ‘Terror Babies’ Gohmert: Nukes as Border Control?

East Texas Congressman Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert doesn’t like President Obama’s pledge to scale back the U.S. nuclear arsenal (along with the the arsenals of other nuclear powers).


He tweets:

Is now really the time to reduce America’s nuclear strength, when we can’t even secure our borders? http://fxn.ws/145pFHz

What is he suggesting? That we nuke anyone who makes it over the border fence?

  1. Dan. Me thinks any assumption that Gomer “thinks” is in itself a poor assumption. I am not even sure you could call what he does “thinking.” It is more like what happens when the doctor hits your knee with that little hammer.

  2. Well, one could put all the nuclear waste on the border, so only zombies could still cross it. There would be just the tiny problem that it would attract terrorists of all stripes to collect it for their own dirty bomb projects.
    Even ruthless dictatorships like the former GDR or, worse, North Korea were/are unable to ‘secure’ their borders (from people trying to get out). Minefields, fences, concrete walls, dogs, spring guns, watchtowers with ‘reliable’ guards ordered to shoot anything that moves, secret police constantly scouring a wide zone along the border for people that could be would-be crossers etc. do not stop desperate people from trying and often succeeding to get over the border.
