Attack Of The Terror Babies
One of the more bizarre memes floating out there right now is the idea of the so-called “terror babies,” the alleged threat that Islamic radicals are taking advantage of the the 14th Amendment’s birthright citizenship rules to bring women to America to give birth to children who will then be taken back to, wherever, trained as terrorists when they become adults, and then returned to the United States:
Al-Qaeda may have infiltrated the womb.
In a speech on the floor of the House last week Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert warned about an insidious plot by terror organizations to infiltrate the US with pregnant woman.
According to Gohmert, the plan is that women would give birth to terrorist babies who can then return to wreak havoc on the US once they come of age.
“It appeared that [the terrorists] would have young women, who became pregnant, would get them into the United States to have a baby,” Gohmert said. “And then they would turn back where they could be raised and coddled as future terrorists.”
Gohmert cited a retired FBI agent as his inside source on the baby conspiracy plot.
“And then one day, twenty, thirty years down the road, they can be sent in to help destroy our way of life,” he said.
It sounds totally insane, of course. Why would Al Qaeda go through such bizarre machinations when there are millions of recruits available now right in their backyard ? And yet, Gohmert isn’t alone, he’s joined by another Texas politician:
Last night Anderson Cooper had Gohmert himself on and, well, I’ll let you judge for yourself:
File this one under too stupid to believe.
