Ted Yoho Is An Idiot, Pt.2   Leave a comment

Back in October 2013, I wrote about how Rep. Ted Yoho was an idiot…apparently, he’s outdone even that episode of idiocracy by going the Rand Paul route:

Tea Party Congressman Ted Yoho joined a growing number of conservatives who are questioning if the Civil Rights Act is constitutional. You may remember whenRachel Maddow made Sen. Rand Paul look like a fool and destroyed him over his anti-civil right’s stance. (see video) The Tea party is comprised of so many nutty people with wacked out notions about our country it’s no wonder people like Paul and Yoho are questioning if the Civil Rights Act violates freedom.(Crooks & Liars)

Think Progress has Yoho’s words (when asked by a constituent at a recent town-hall meeting)…and boy, are they head-scratchingly stupid:

FLOURNOY: Do you think that any part of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 [sic], do you think any part of that is constitutional? And then if you’d discuss why. […]

YOHO: This country grew through a lot of growing pain. We’re going through it again. As we grow as a country and prosper, we’re going to go through it again in the future. That’s why I’m so thankful for the Constitution because it allows us to do that. Is it constitutional, the Civil Rights Act? I wish I could answer that 100 percent. I know a lot of things that were passed are not constitutional, but I know it’s the law of the land.(Think Progress)

Yeah…he went there. What the hell is with Republicans and their seeming opposition currently to civil rights?
