Not that she was ever sane — not hardly! — but Texas Eagle Forum President Cathie Adams has really gone off the deep end. Adams, the Dallas-based former chair of the Texas Republican Party, now says she believes President Obama is a Marxist who “fried his brain on drugs.” Adams also says watching Obama during the final presidential debate made her “want to go up and just smack his face!”
Adams made the comments just before the election at a “Call to Action” meeting where she spoke alongside the equally frightening Ted Cruz, Texas’ new U.S. senator. Right Wing Watch has audio and posted this transcript of Adams’ remarks:
Who is a Marxist in our White House? Of course, it’s Barack Hussein Obama. And I don’t know why we’re not calling him what he is as a Marxist. It’s as if, when the wall fell that communism died; it didn’t. Today, it is green on the outside and red on the inside. It is as red as ever and Barack Obama is implementing his green agenda, which is Marxism, and that is exactly why our economy is hurting as badly as it is and why twenty three million people are still out of work. That is exactly what is happening.
So for us to elect a US Senator or elect a President who thinks more of himself than he ought, who thinks so narcissisticly, as Barack Hussein Obama glared at Mitt Romney in that last debate, I was so offended I wanted to go up and just smack his face.
And folks we’ve got to be very careful about saying “well, that’s not for me but you can do whatever you want.” Folks, we have a rule of law, we have a Constitution and those things must be upheld. We cannot think that, well, if what their trying to do, for example, right now on a ballot in Colorado is legalize marijuana. And if we legalize it, will we empty out our jails and will we be safe for ever more? No. I’m telling you, Barack Hussein Obama has got to have a teleprompter because he fried his brain on drugs.
For those who don’t recognize her name, Adams has been one of the leading anti-gay voices in North Texas for decades. Given that she’s now confirmed as batshit fuckin’ crazy, I wonder if The Dallas Morning News will still call on Adams for comment every time a local LGBT issue comes up. Hey, let’s hope so! It’s hard to say what finally drove Adams over the edge, but we can only guess that her husband Homer’s defeat at the hands of gay Republican Rob Schlein in a race for GOP precinct chair in Far North Dallas this summer had something to do with it.
