http://www.examiner.com/x-4383-Port...eck-Texas-pol-claims-Obama-is-Gods-punishment Appearing with Glenn Beck, Republican Texas state Rep. Leo Berman told an audience of conservatives that "Obama is God's punishment." The statement came at an event at the Oil Palace in Tyler, TX., at a Glenn Beck-headlined "Taking Back America" rally. Governor Rick Perry and US Congressman Louie Gohmert also made an appearance at the right wing love fest. Perry claimed he was âproudâ to be in an âarmyâ of anti-Obama Americans. While Rep. Louie Gohmert is infamous for claiming "demons" had invaded Washington and were causing Democrats to mislead voters about the merits of health care reform. All speakers were delivering similar messages of hate and anti-America anti-Obama propaganda. However, Berman's words were perhaps the most offensive. Telling the crowd, âI believe that Barack Obama is Godâs punishment on us today, but in 2012, we are going to make Obama a one-term president.â Berman takes the politics of personal destruction to a new low. Approximately 4,500 right wing nuts gathered for the town-hall-style meeting filled with religious absurdities and patriotic perversities. It is a sad commentary on our great nation that pockets of such ignorance and hate continue to fester and rot, threatening the body politic.
