Louie Gohmert, Asshole of the Day for August 21, 2014

by TheDailyEdge ()

As someone tweeted yesterday: "Crazy people want to run our country and the worst part is that we are letting them." 

Case in point: Looney Tunes Tea Party Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert. Best known for being a moronic hatemonger willing to smear anyone who happens to be Muslim, Gohmert was at it again yesterday, telling listeners to SirisXM’s “The Wilkow Majority” that Obama won’t be able to protect America from the threat posed by ISIS because: “If you’re Commander-in-Chief you can’t be listening to Muslim brother advise on when it’s time to stop destroying Muslim brothers.”

This on the same day that, as Think Progress, reports:

President Obama expressed outrage over the slaying of reporter James Foley at the hands of ISIS , saying the group “speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day.” The president also vowed to continue the American policy of conducting airstrikes against the organization. “The United States of America will continue to do what we must do to protect our people,” Obama said. “We will be vigilant and we will be relentless.”

This is the same Louie Gohmert who previously claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood was guiding the investigation into the Boston Marathon bombings. It’s his fifth time as Asshole of the Day.

Gaza August 19,2014.

"Extended cease-fire ends. Airstrikes resume. More than 30 Palestinians injured and 2  killed in Gaza."

Israel’s Operation Protective Edge

  • 2,019 Palestinians killed [80% civilians] , including 542 children and 251 women from Israeli bombardment
  • 64 Israeli Soldiers killed in combat and 3 civilians
  • 10,223 Palestinians wounded, including 3,486 children and 1,970 women
  •  UNRWA has exhausted its capacity to absorb displaced persons, and overcrowding in shelters risks the outbreak of epidemics.
  • 122 Palestinian families have lost 3 or more members of their family.
  • UNICEF estimates about 373,000 Palestinian children have had some kind of direct traumatic experience and require immediate psycho-social support.
  • 1.5 million people in Gaza have limited or no access to water supplies. 26 health facilities have been damaged.
  • More than 485,000 internally displaced are in need of emergency food assistance.
  • Shelling and bombing have damaged 142 schools — 89 of them run by the United Nations — , and multiple Israeli strikes on Gaza’s only power plant and other infrastructure have left it beyond repair.The cost of reconstruction will run to “hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars,” - Pernille Ironside, the head of the Unicef office in Gaza

‘DAREDEVIL’ STAR VINCENT D’ONOFRIO TALKS KINGPIN, MARVEL FANS AND ‘DEFENDERS’ CROSSOVER

By Nick Romano

No, you shouldn’t adjust your computer screen. The above photo is of Vincent D’Onofrio, who shaved his head for his role as Wilson Fisk (aka Kingpin) in Marvel’s upcoming ‘Daredevil‘ series, to stream on Netflix in 2015. As he told ScreenCrush earlier today, tonight he’s filming a big scene in Brooklyn where “it’s the first time you see my character do something physical.” Given how intimidating the ‘Law & Order: Criminal Intent’ vet looks in person with this new look — mind you, he’s also 6’4” — we can’t wait to see how his character comes to life on-screen.

Marvel is currently hard at work filming the first of its four upcoming Netflix series (and that’s not including the miniseries team-up of ‘The Defenders’) in New York, but in between shoots, D’Onofrio stopped by the ScreenCrush and Loudwire offices to talk about one of his other passion projects, an indie film titled ‘Mall’ that’s directed by Linkin Park member Joe Hahn. D’Onofrio produced and co-wrote the script for the film, which spotlights a group of characters during a tragic mall shooting.

The film is scheduled for a limited release starting October 17 — be sure to stay tuned for more interviews with D’Onofrio and Hahn before then — but we had to ask the Kingpin himself about transforming into the iconic Marvel villain, his hopes for creating the quintessential portrayal of this character, the series’ crossover potential, and more.
