Ladies and Gentlemen, the GOP

Filed under: Uncategorized — matt w @ 7:29 pm

Four GOP Representatives charged that Muslim spies are infiltrating Congress as interns, brandishing a book co-written by Dave Gaubatz (and based in part on documents stolen from the Council on American Islamic Relations by his son, who infiltrated CAIR as an intern, but never mind that). Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC) wrote the foreword to Gaubatz’s book.

Dave Gaubatz is a nut. A real nut. He thought he found Saddam’s WMD, but I don’t suppose that’d be enough to discredit him among rank-and-file GOPers.

He also writes:

White Christians were at the founding of this nation a distinct people and privileged as such. Men of means among this people were given the opportunity for representative government. This is, for those of you flinching, not a thesis or”viewpoint”; this is historical fact.

and in case you’re wondering what moral he draws from that “fact,” he doesn’t much like Jews, black people, Jews, black people, Jews, black people, black people, black people, women, or black people.

I’d hope Myrick and her friends would be somewhat ashamed of that last batch of quotes. Perhaps someone should ask her about it.

[BTW, the site is now for members only and has been blocked from the Internet Archive, so I can’t directly verify those quotes. But Jim Henley is a straight shooter, and Gaubatz himself showed up in comments without protesting them, so I’m guessing they’re legit.]



  1. and women. and poor people. ’cause it was “men of means.”

  2. Oh, you said, “women.”

  3. Well, I was trying to stick to hatreds that the GOP would consider to be bugs rather than features. At least in public.
