Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) crashed the sit-in pillow party orchestrated by House Democrats, offering up a dose of reality. The Dems continue to blame guns for the terrorist attack in Orlando, refusing to name the real culprit --- radical Islam.
Gohmert bravely confronted them with the truth, yelling "Radical Islam killed these people!" pointing to posters with photos of gun violence victims.
Things are reaching a fever pitch that Glenn has warned about for years.
"Who saw Louie Gohmert on the floor of the House yesterday and thought to themselves, 'Oh, my gosh, this is what Glenn Beck has been talking about is coming and the warning of that's right before we break apart?'" Glenn asked. "We are on the brink of civil war. We are on the brink of breaking apart."
Co-host Pat Gray agreed.
"We're on the brink of a Charles Sumner moment, where he got beaten with a cane over the expansion of slavery in the country," Pat said.
For those unfamiliar with this story from American history, Charles Sumner was a senator from Massachusetts who, as part of the Radical Republicans, fought to end slavery. His speeches admonishing slavery infuriated pro-slavery senators --- both Democrats and moderate Republicans. In 1856, Representative Preston Brooks, a democrat from South Carolina, beat Sumner severely on the head with a cane. Sumner, who became blinded by his own blood, staggered up the aisle of the senate chamber before collapsing and lapsing into unconsciousness. Brooks continued beating a motionless Sumner until his cane broke. Several other senators attempted to help Sumner, but were blocked by fellow South Carolinian, Laurence Keitt, who brandished a pistol and shouted, "Let them be!"
Glenn fears we're headed in the same direction.
"Mark my words. It will be someone like Ted Cruz or Louie Gohmert that gets the cane to the head. It will be a self-righteous progressive that will beat a liberty person almost to death. That's what happened in the 1800s," Glenn said.
During the mayhem yesterday when Gohmert bravely spoke the truth, another voice boomed out, trying to drown out the opposition.
Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to protect terrorists from buying a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun? Why do you want to let terrorists buy a gun?
"Does this make any sense? Does this make any sense at all? You've got the Democrats saying, 'Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun? Why would you want a terrorist to buy a gun' The same people who cannot bring themselves to even identify terrorists," Glenn said.
As always, Democrats want it both ways to suit their agenda of the moment.
"They're the same people who would not say anything about Fort Hood. This is a game, guys. You're watching a play. Why do you want terrorists to buy guns? That's not the position of the left. Terrorists don't exist," Glenn said.
Had Democrats done their job and allowed the FBI to flag Mateen as a terrorist and place him on a watch list, had they not dismissed red flags raised by American citizens, including the owner of a gun shop, Omar Mateen would have never purchased a gun legally. Political correctness enforced by Democrats failed the American people and citizens at an Orlando nightclub, allowing a radicalized terrorist to kill 49 innocent people and wound scores more.
"Here's the problem: If he would have been on the terror watch list and if they were investigating him, if people had made these charges, they couldn't really go in and look at his computer. Yes, they can. It's called the NSA. I thought that's what we were doing. I thought that's what they were doing illegally against the Constitution. See, none of this makes sense. They are not fighting for life. And they are not fighting for civil rights.
