U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, released the following statement today concerning the horrific attack in Paris that left more than 100 innocent people dead:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Paris and all their loved ones. My heart breaks for the families and friends of those violently murdered yesterday. We have seen violence at the hands of radical jihadis only escalate throughout the world. It is time to stop ridiculing those of us who have been sounding the alarm about radical Islamists and work together to stop them and their terrorist tactics.
“FBI Director Comey has testified before our committee that ISIS is active in every single state in our nation. Americans must wake up, demand the Obama administration realize that war is being waged against us, and that we must take it on as a war, not as a criminal justice matter. In a war, you don’t ‘bring people to justice,’ you destroy the enemy. A coordinated attack of this nature is not only sheer evil, it is an act of war.”
