Representative Louie “Terror Babies” Gohmert Pyle (R-TX) delivered a stern warning today on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, and according to him President Obama is ushering in a new Ottoman Empire.
“This is the beginning… a massive beginning of a new Ottoman Empire that President Obama can take great credit for,” Gohmert said. “Thank you President Barack Hussein Obama. This will be quite a legacy for you.
“And I’m not one of those who says he’s not a Christian. All I know is that’s between him and God. But what I do know is he has helped jump start a new Ottoman Empire, and left our friend and ally Israel so vulnerable in this sea of radicalism that he has helped bring to the surface.”
The Turkish Ottoman Empire dissolved in 1922 after World War I and divided into 39 separate countries, many of whom now consider each other enemies.
If President Obama has the power to unite the entire middle east, including Sunni and Shia, into a new Turkish empire, I’m sure he can unite America. Maybe. The divide between New York and Alabama may be more severe.
Modern Turkey is one our closest allies in the region, a member of NATO, and is currently in the process of joining the European Union.
