Why do you have to be a dick about everything? Louie Gohmert

I've always wanted to start a new series called "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" dedicated to the elected officials who just act like a bag of dicks. Examples are Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, Donald Trump, and former Congressman Steve Stockman. There are many more but today is dedicated to Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert.

Gohmert embarrassed himself, Congress, and his district once again during the hearing of FBI agent Strzok. Just like a dick, Gohmert made a very personal attack on Strzok during the hearing causing an uproar in the chamber with one Congresswoman yelling "Are you off your meds?". You can watch his dickness on CNN.

In Gohmert's defense, no he is not off his meds. That is who Gohmert is. He is a dick. He acts like a dick. That is Louie Gohmert. A dick. This isn't the first time Gohmert has been a dick about everything. He claimed Mexicans were coming across the border to give birth to "Terror Babies", American citizens who would return 18 years later as a terrorist. He actually wrote a letter to the FBI requesting an investigation into the "Muslim Brotherhood" and President Obama. He nominated Trump for a Nobel Peace Prize for his photo op with Kim Jung Un.

Gohmert represents Texas Congressional District 1 home to Tyler Texas. His constituents must like dicks since he easily wins each election. Instead of voting for him they should be asking Gohmert "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?".

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Donald Trump

As I have said in the past:

I've always wanted to start a new series called "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" dedicated to the elected officials who just act like a bag of dicks.

My first was about Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert and today it is Donald Trump. For the Donald, it isn't hard to be a dick. That is what he is. A dick. Maybe he shouldn't be allowed to compete for this title since he is such a dick every moment of every day but today he gets a special mention.

Senator John McCain passed away from his battle with brain cancer. For anyone who has witnessed a loved one dying from cancer, it leaves a mark. I'ts a horrible disease and yet Trump found a way to make it worse. He refused to issue a statement on his passing. He refused to leave the flag at half staff only reversing his order after pressure from Veteran organizations. He refused to answer questions about John McCain's passing or his legacy when directly asked during a press conference. Instead he sat with his arms crossed like a 32 year old coworker who's idea at the team meeting was rejected due to lack of research. He pouted.

He finally released a statement from the White House that was tepid at best, late, and as sincere as an email from a coworker apologizing for his behavior at the last team meeting.

His actions just begs the question: Why do you have to be a dick about everything?

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Mark Tice

Mark Tice. From the Baytown Sun

UPDATE: Commissioner Tice responded with a form letter concerning him say "English this is not Mexico". Here it is:

Sadly, this story has been turned into something it’s not. In know way were my comments centered around race. The intention behind my statement had to do with the fact that questions were being asked in Spanish and answered in Spanish, with no interpretation being given in English... or into any other language that many other Houstonians speak. This is about getting information out to people in an emergency situation in the most effective way possible. That is all. In my opinion, the structure of the press conference could have been better put together. I sincerely apologize if the way I said things landed in a way that was offensive or derogatory... that was absolutely not my motive. Some of my best friends in life are Hispanic. This narrative that’s being painted of me couldn’t be further from the truth.

I just don't get it. It is 2019 not 1819.

Why do we have to continue to call out elected officials from the Republican Party to stop saying things that are racist? It begs the question "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?". Todays official Chambers Commissioner Mark Tice joins Trump, Gohmert, the Harris County Republican Party, Sid Miller, and Stan Stanart for being a dick. About everything.

From the NBC News:
The commissioner, Mark Tice, of Chambers County, posted a comment saying “English this is not Mexico,” after Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo — the first Latina and first woman elected as the county's top executive — addressed constituents and reporters from English and Spanish language media outlets on a briefing Monday that was streamed on CBS affiliate KHOU’s Facebook page.In the same comment, Tice said Hidalgo was “a joke.”
Tice has since closed his Facebook page after having a couple of conversations with individuals who did not appreciate his comment. Before shooting his mouth off he might have actually listened to the press conference. Judge Hidalgo was answer questions in Spanish as a response to questions asked in Spanish.
Unlike Tice, Judge Lina Hidalgo is intelligent enough to speak multiple languages.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything? Harris County GOP

The Chair of the Harris County Republican Party (HCRaP), Paul Simpson, has joined the "Why do you have to be a dick about everything" club standing with Congressman Louie Gohmert, Texas Ag Commissioner Sid Miller, former County Clerk Stan Stanart, and Trump. Simpson used the Holocaust Remembrance Day to make an offensive political statement with a post on the official  county Facebook page.

Within an hour of posting this, Simpson has edited out the "Leftists kills" comment and will soon deleted the entire post, as he should. Update: the post has now been deleted.

Last November Simpson guided his party to an epic loss, losing every County election except for one. Instead of using the time to understand why his party lost, Simpson takes the time to write offensive Facebook posts.

I just do not understand why he has to be a dick about everything.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Tx Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller

Don't you have anything better to do than tweet or read Facebook?

As the Houston Chronicle pointed out Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller, once again, used social media for a racist attack on an African American. From the Chronicle:

AUSTIN — Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller liked a comment on his Facebook page that called for getting “a rope” to handle his Democratic opponent, Kim Olson, and an African-American U.S. Senator in an apparent reference to lynching.

Yes. Lynching and this is not Sid Miller's first rodeo. As you may remember Miller was criticized for calling Secretary Clinton the C word back in 2016. Calling a woman the C word usually results in getting fired, removed from office, or your ass kicked. Miller later issued an apology:

I went on to raise horses and ride in the rodeo. I was considered just an ole, simple minded, Christian, country bumpkin with a hat bigger than my head. Unfortunately this continues to this day resulting in my unfortunate use of the word C*** when referring to a female politician. For this I apologize. 
In the future I will work to uphold the laws of the State, the word of the Lord, and the wisdom of family values and will use other words like bitch or whore.

Sid Miller isn't fit to be a rodeo clown much less an elected official. Instead of tweeting and being a racist on Facebook he should be spending time doing hid damn job. He has become the rodeo clown of the Texas republic party acting like a racist asshole, much like his mentor Donald Trump. For this we have to ask "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?".

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Stan Stanart

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart has joined Louie Gohmert, Sid Miller, and Donald trump in the "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" club. 

Stan Stanart was elected back in 2010 during the tea bagger take over. He has only one job, that is to run the elections in Harris County and he has pretty much sucked at it. (actually he has more than one job but the one he sucks at is the most notable) He is all in for trump. He fully supports a racist, a liar, a rotten human being as the leader of his party and the country. And he just can't get away from the republican tactic of fear mongering. From the Houston Chronicle:

Stanart's use of George Soros-related fear-mongering on his campaign website also brings an unnecessary tinge of partisanship to his office and panders to anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. His site says that the Jewish Hungarian billionaire "wants to control Harris County Elections" — a bizarre and inaccurate claim. Stanart told us it was based on a rumor that later turned out to be untrue, but he never changed the website. 

Even after the shooting in a Pittsburgh synagogue which killed 11 people and wounded 4 police officers, Stanart has refused to change the content on his website. This goes beyond fear mongering. It goes beyond running a hard campaign. This is just another republican, Stan Stanart, being a racist, rotten, dick about everything.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything? Tx Congressman Randy Weber

This is a Facebook post from a United States Congressman from Galveston Texas. This is a so called "Christian" who thinks it is funny to mock children who have been separated from their parents or those who have fled their country seeking the help from Christians such as Weber. Instead of finding compassion or legal process they find a United States Congressman, an "honorable" Congressman making fun of them living in filth, sleeping on the floor, and wondering if they have met a devil instead of a Christian. Weber joins his president and others in the Republican Party as a member of the "Why do you have to be a dick about everything" Club.

Weber isn't a Christian. He is a dick.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Galveston County Young Republicans

Every now and then you have to ask the question "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?".

The Republican Party is raising a new crop of dicks in Galveston County. Joining the bag of dicks which include Trump, Louie Gohmert, Sid Miller, and the Harris County Republican Party, the Galveston County Young Republicans reached down into their pants and whip out the following:

Children are dying, locked up in filthy cages not fit for a dog, and they think this is funny, cute. Congratulations to the GCYR for joining the bag of dicks.

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart removes anti-Semitic website

Why do we have to tell elected officials to not be anti-Semitic?

According to the Houston Chronicle:
After the Houston Chronicle posted an article Tuesday in which observers described the Soros attack as a "dog whistle" to anti-Semites, references to Soros disappeared from the site.

Harris County Clerk Stan Stanart was  the subject of a previous post "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" because of his dog whistle re-election website. This is the second time Stanart has had to be called out. Earlier this week Stanart wasn't going to enforce the law at an early voting location in Clear Lake by demanding a poll worker to remove his nra hat....until Fox 26 called him out on it. He quickly threw his workers under the bus and required him to either remove the hat or leave.

This behavior has become a habit for republicans. Why do we have to tell republican elected officials not to be racist, not to mock the disabled, not to send dick pics, not to call a woman the C word, not to use the N word, and not to post anti-Semitic material on their re-election website?

It's as if they don't want to be an elected official anymore. We can help them on November 6.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything? CCISD Trustee Scott Bowen

CCISD Trustee, Scott Bowen, is a Qanon republican. He won a seat on the CCISD school board and has served his party well by disrupting, disrespecting, and being a dick about everything. His latest childish dickishness was on full display, and on camera, at the last public comment session of the committee monthly meeting. Video below.

The public comment period of the CCISD meetings has become a Qanon free for all with conspiracy theorists, unqualified individuals giving medical advice, and former candidates like Christine Parizo who lost by 25 points whining about losing by 25 points. Those in the audience clap and cheer even though clapping and cheering is against the rules committee, and against common sense decency of civilization. It's what we call in Texas a shitshow.

Bowen showed his dickness when a parent was distributing a document to each of the Trustees. She wore a mask because I believe she was being careful about COVID. As she passed by Bowen he played coughed on her then turned to Trustee Cottrell who joined him for a good laugh. It was all quite funny poking fun at a parent concerned about bringing a deadly virus back to her kids at home. Bowen just couldn't pass up the opportunity to be a dick about everything. He did a great job.

I wonder if Bowen coughed on Scott Apley's wife and infant child during his funeral. Apley was another Qanon, COVID denier, Dickinson City Councilman, and member of the Republican Party Executive Committee. He died of COVID.

Bowen jumps into the Bag of Dicks with Mark Henry, Randy Weber, Steve Stockman, the Galveston Young Republicans, Ted Cruz, Louie Gohmert, and many many more.

Texas Gov Greg Abbott is truly crippled

As they say "When he tells you who he is, believe him."

I would have written another one of my "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" post, joining the ranks of Sid Miller, Louie Gohmert, the Harris County Republican Party, the Young Republicans of Galveston, and others, but Abbott deserves worse or better. Being a dick about everything seems to be par for Abbott. 

This weekend Chick-Fil-A announced it would discontinue donations to anti-gay organizations. According to Fox News:
Chick-fil-A has announced it will focus on donating to initiatives that further its “mission of nourishing the potential in every child” in 2020 — and that it will no longer be giving to two organizations that it had previously received backlash for donating to in previous years: the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and The Salvation Army.
Salvation Army? Really? 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott had to be a dick in a tweet issued shortly after the announcement.

Abbott is expected to represent all Texans. He may not like all Texans but he is expected to represent them. This stupid tweet was not necessary but it clearly shows who Greg Abbott is. Abbott is  truly  crippled. Morally.

Why do you have to be a dick about everything: Texas Governor Greg Abbott

Leave it to Greg Abbott to celebrate the death of 2 protestors in another state.

After the verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case Greg Abbott jumped for joy, opened his damn pie hole, and just couldn't resist being a dick about everything by sending a congratulatory tweet. The lives of two families have been changed forever. They lost a loved one because a 17 year old with a loaded assault weapon crossed state lines to join in a protest and shoot two people to death. 

The least Abbott could do was to sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up. Abbott joins the others in the bag of dicks like Scott Bowen, Louie Gohmert, Ted Cruz, Steve Stockman and more.

Harris County GOP doubles down on being dicks.

When your mouth has dug yourself a hole, do yourself a favor and shut the hell up.

The Chair of the Harris County Republican Party (HCRaP), Paul Simpson, hasn't learned that lesson. After posting an offensive Facebook comment concerning the Holocaust Remembrance Day, being widely criticized by the media, editing the comment, then just deleting it all together, Simpson just could refrain from issuing another ill advised statement:
“A few accused the post of being anti-Semitic. It was nothing of the sort. All Americans should be on guard against the dangers of ideologies that demean the value of individual human lives to the collective. That includes socialism in all forms, whether 20th-century German National Socialism or today's glossed-over socialism that is condoned and even promoted by those who should know better. The human suffering in today’s Cuba and Venezuela are vivid reminders that Socialism does indeed kill. Americans should not tread on the slippery slope of socialism that has always led to misery."
Simpson's original comment put him in the "Why do you have to be a dick about everything?" Club. It doesn't take a moron to understand how offensive it is to take a day of remembrance where 6+million human beings were killed and use it to further your white wing cause. Even members of his own party had a comment:

Paul shut up. Just shut up! We are being painted as a bunch of white wing anti-Semites! We are already considered a bunch of white wing racists!

OK. That was just made up. but local resident, Art Pronin responded with a Letter to the Editor in the Houston Chronicle:

I can't imagine what they are going to post come Memorial Day.
