Debbie Riddle, Our Female Gohmert, Compares Pro-Choice Camp to Hitler
It's no stretch to say Debbie Riddle is the female equivalent of Louie Gohmert. Both are the most notable proponents of the Terror Baby Theory, planting pregnant Hezbollah operatives just across the border. Both are aging Christianists with little interest in humility or discussion. Both are low-hanging fruit.
There is one discernible difference, though -- Debbie has a greater penchant for social media than Gohmert. She has no qualms with tossing a quick post on whatever hair-brained idea has just crossed the Tomball representative's mind. In the past, Riddle's gotten in hot water for espousing her views on breast-feeding, and her desire to make sure such heinous act is kept behind closed doors. Now, and as predictably as anything this side of Gohmert's hard-headedness, we have Riddle opining on the abortion bills that have brought forth the greatest the filibuster the state has seen in years. After all, did you think Riddle would stand idly by while other Texas pols claimed that fetuses masturbate and that rape kits cause abortion? Of course not.
Unfortunately, Riddle's taken down the post that shared her most recent and least surprising views. But Texas Freedom Network managed to grab a screencap of Riddle's commentary, so that we can enjoy yet another round of wondering whether those in Tomball have any idea of the woman for whom they've voted:
This one kind of speaks for itself. A bit of fun wordplay -- since they push for abortion rights, they push for slaughtering babies! etc. -- and a bit of righteous judgment from the only side that could possibly have any moral clarity.
The conclusion to this story at http://blogs.houstonpress.com/hairballs/2013/06/debbie_riddle_abortion_hitler.php .
Debbie Riddle is a horse breeder and Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives, serving House District 150, which comprises much of northwest Harris County.
Now for the crappy part that I just discovered--she is an alum of my alma mater, Southwestern University. I apologize to Texas for Pete Sessions and her.
