The Hits Just Keep On Coming

I’d never heard of Tennessee Republican Rick Womick before, but now the entire world knows he’s a raging asshole idiot Islamophobe:

In the interview, which took place on Veterans Day, Womick told ThinkProgress that “I don’t trust one Muslim in our military” and “if they truly are a devout Muslims, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.” When asked if Muslims should be forced out of the military, Womick responded “Absolutely, yeah.” Read the exchange:

FANG: What about the thousands of Muslims that are still in the military that are veterans, that are translators, that are active personnel. Is there some sort of policy solution that you’re advocating? […]

WOMICK: Personally, I don’t trust one Muslim in our military because they’re commanded to lie to us through the term called Taqiyya. And if they truly are a devout Muslim, and follow the Quran and the Sunnah, then I feel threatened because they’re commanded to kill me.

CLIFTON: You believe they should be forced out?

WOMICK: Absolutely, yeah.

Jeeeeez. Can’t imagine why Nashville’s Hutton Hotel didn’t want to be associated with this hatefest! Watch the video here:

What an absolutely despicable moron. On a related note, I’ve learned of a new scientific study indicating conservatives are borderline sociopaths:

A new study finds that conservative moral judgements on several issues have a correlation with “dark and anti-social personality traits.” The study, from the University of Tampa’s Dr. Marcus Arvan, PhD in the journal Neuroethics found Machiavellianism (deception), narcissism (overinflated sense of self-worth), and psychopathy (absence of guilt or remorse) in conservative value judgements.

Science! I have to say, with the stuff we’re hearing from people like Womick (and at every GOP debate thus far, where something heinous has been cheered by the Lizard People in attendance), I’m inclined to think Dr. Avan is on to something.

  1. Oh, heck, we had gone 2 damned days without Tennessee making national news…last episode was the couple who believe God told them to BEAT their KIDS to death if they won’t obey.
    The photo of this dilbert with suit on is a facade. He apparently never SERVED in our armed forces, is hearing voices, and somebody needs to lock him the hell up. Proper attire for him should be used/bought at Army Surplus store combat gear, fatigues and a SIGN that says: ‘I am a never-enlisted loon/homegrown terrorist’. Stand back. I am armed, cocked and loaded. I HATE everyone.

      Oh man, I heard that story but had no idea it was out of Tennessee. Well THAT figures.

  2. What’s needed, when one of these assholes opens his pie hole to reveal how stupid and bigoted he is, is for some decorated, wounded marine who IS a muslim to call him out. What a piece of shit.

  3. I have devised a new category for the likes of legishater Womick–RepuKKKliKKKlansman.

    I’m thinking of sending him an e-mail to let him know that he disgraces the uniform that I wore.

  4. Ah, googling Imperial Wanker Womick’s website reveals that he was an F15 fighter pilot and now flies for American Airlines. I think a nice note to his employers is in order. He doesn’t trust mooslims and he’s allowed to carry a gun in the cockpit. I wonder if all the boarding passengers on his flights have to pass the HST*, prior to embarkation.

  5. Per my last comment, I sent American Airlines a note.

    I won’t hold my breath waiting for their reply but I will be following up with the FAA and the FTC if I don’t hear something soon.

    This fucking clown served 23 years in the AF (the last 13 as a reservist) and the idea that some asshole with such crazy notions about people who serve in our armed forces is/was in a position where he can/could do something with either his sidearm or the aircraft is, to put it mildly, a bit alarming.

    This moron needs to learn that hatin’ on people you don’t understand, BECAUSE you don’t understand them, runs counter the very beliefs he claims to hold.
