This week on the “The Lars Larson Show,” while discussing a Florida mailman landing a gyrocopter on the U.S. Capitol lawn, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said the incident shows the Department of Homeland Security is so busy with President Barack Obama’s executive order amnesty they are not capable of protecting the U.S. Capitol.
Gohmert said, “It ought to scare people because Homeland Security is so overwhelmed in trying to bring on and ship around illegal aliens and give amnesty to as many people as they can, the millions we are told that will ultimately have this amnesty, that they can’t do something as simple as protect the Untied States Capitol.
“A lot of people thought the fourth plane those American heroes took down in Pennsylvania was probably going for the White House,” he continued. “The information I have is he was going to the Capitol. There are some surveys that show the U.S. Capitol is the most recognized building in the world.”
“That dome is a symbol of what’s right with America. We have just seen that, that whole thing can be taken out by anybody without Homeland Security or any of our security doing one thing to stop it,” he added.
