Alan Keyes and Rep. Louie Gohmert say ‘elites’ plotting to depopulate the world

This is one of those sentences that just keeps getting steadily worse with every added phrase:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) filled in for Tony Perkins on the Family Research Council’s Washington Watch radio program [Monday] where he interviewed ultraconservative activist Alan Keyes.

Yep, now that’s a sentence that fish-slaps you with every word. It also counts as a circle of hell. Of all the available people you could get to guest host your radio show, you pick Louie Gohmert? As what, a bar bet?

It turns out that the time was not wasted, though, as Louie Gohmert and Alen Keyes got right down to business discussing the worldwide conspiracy by manatee-loving elitists to depopulate the world via a sinister plan of energy efficiency and increased health care access.

The former presidential candidate said efforts to prevent “global warming, which has been proven to be wrong,” are part of a plan to “cut back the population of the world.” Keyes also made a reference to Bill Gates, who has been attacked by conspiracy theorists for explaining that vaccinations and increased healthcare access slow down population growth.

Keyes told Gohmert that elites are bent on “culling the population” and “actually believe that we’re a blight on the face of the planet, we human beings, and we should therefore be put on a path toward our own semi-extinction.”

I don’t rank as much of an elite, but I assure you my beliefs on who is or is not a blight on the face of the planet is considerably more selective.

“I often try to get people to see that if you think about it, if we actually get back to the levels they’re talking about, it would just be these elitists and the people needed to service them. That’s all that will be left in the world.”

And that would be different from now … how? Seems like all of human history can be reduced to elites considering everyone else to be nothing more than the servant class. Christ, Mitt Romney practically ran his campaign on the notion. American economic policymakers have been burning incense at that altar for decades, to the point where someone suggesting that they do not believe the world exists primarily so that the rest of us can make nice things for rich people will be met with angry retired people standing on street corners wearing funny hats and yelling communism! at the top of their lungs. And Louie Gohmert and Alan Keyes will be standing right in the middle of that crowd, burbling and asking for donations.

“That’s right, that’s a scary thought,” Gohmert replied.

Helpful hint: every thought that enters Louie Gohmert’s thick skull is a “scary thought”. The inside of his mind looks like an abandoned carnival from an old Scooby Doo episode. This week’s special guest: Alan Keyes!

I have nothing profound to say about this, I just wanted to note that Alan Keyes and Louie Gohmert spent radio time discussing the manatee apocalypse, female fertility rates, and how the “hedonism” of gay marriage is bringing down the American economy. If I have to know it happened, I’m taking you all with me.
