The topics of Gohmert’s floor speeches vary, though they frequently touch upon Middle East foreign policy, President Obama’s Justice Department, and illegal immigration. He occasionally employs unusual visuals, such as posters depicting crucifixions while discussing persecutions of Christians.
Gohmert grabbed headlines during a hearing on Wednesday when he upbraided FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler for the agency’s controversial net-neutrality rules.
“Before the FCC stepped in, everybody was able to explore new business models,” Gohmert yelled. “The only business is now you’re playing God with the Internet, while saying “I’ll leave some room for you to come up with new business models.’ That’s not your job!”
