Racist Rep Steve King stans rape and incest



When will this horror be voted out???

cbs.com

While speaking to a conservative group in Iowa, U.S. Rep. Steve King wondered if there would be "any population of the world" remaining if not for people born as a result of rape or incest, reports the Des Moines Register. It's not the first time comments by the Republican congressman have sparked an uproar, and it drew immediate criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.

"What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest?" asked King at the Westside Conservative Club in Urbandale, Iowa on Wednesday, according to the Register. "Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?"

He went on to say that considering "all the wars and all the rapes and pillages" that took place in the history of the world's nations, he couldn't rule out that he, too, "was not a part of a product of that."

King was defending his decision not to allow exceptions for rape and incest in the anti-abortion legislation he attempted to pass in Congress, the Register reports. He added that babies born through these circumstances are still a person, despite the way in which they were conceived. "It's not the baby's fault for the sin of the father, or of the mother," he said.

The comments quickly came under fire from other lawmakers — including Republican leaders, who stripped King of his committee assignments in January over comments he made defending white supremacy and white nationalism.

Cheney on Steve King's rape, incest comments: 'It's time for him to go'

-

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.) blasted Rep. Steve King on Wednesday and said it was time for the Iowa Republican "to go" amid uproar over his remarks on rape and incest.

-

"Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre. As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better," Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, tweeted.

-

This is not the first time Cheney has spoken out against King following controversial comments.

-

In January, the Wyoming Republican said King should "find another line of work" after he questioned why the terms "white supremacist" and "white nationalist" had become offensive during an interview with The New York Times.

-

“I agree with Leader McConnell, actually. I think he should find another line of work," she said at the time, referring to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.).

-

"His language questioning whether or not the notion of white supremacy is offensive is absolutely abhorrent, it's racist. We do not support it or agree with it," she said then.

-

King argued earlier this year that the Times took him out of context, but House GOP leaders removed him from his committee assignments.

-

King’s primary challenger in his reelection bid, Iowa state Sen. Randy Feenstra (R), raised roughly $260,000 in the first quarter — four times what King’s campaign raised, the Washington Examiner reported.

Darth Vader's daughter wants him out, really?? Only took 16 years in Congress.

There's a Dem running against him too. Very close race in 2018.

thehill.com

J.D. Scholten Democrat challenging Iowa Rep. Steve King (R) in 2020, slammed the congressman's Wednesday remarks in which he questioned whether there would be "any population of the world left" if not for rape and incest as contrary to Iowan values.

“Yet again, Steve King puts his selfish, hateful ideology above the needs of the people of Iowa’s 4th district. Excusing violence — in any way — is entirely unacceptable," Scholten said in a statement Wednesday...

Scholten is again running to unseat King in Iowa's 4th District after losing to the Republican 50.4 percent to 47 percent in 2018.

WTF is wrong with the women in his district who support and voted for him? This directly condones violence towards women and children, period. The FB page of the Westside Conservative Club (where he spoke) had a couple photos with women in them.

It's been often said that White Conservative Women vote for what they believe is best for their White identity over what they would consider best for women.

True. Still it's one thing to vote, more removed. These bitches are sitting in a room (probably next to their husbands) listening to a Congressman make a speech about rape and incest being business as usual.

My conservative leaning mother (born 1919) would NEVER have gone for that. Being white is valuable enough to give up your and your children's physical safety and well being??? Scary. I wasn't raised that way by either of my parents, and I'm ancient by today's standards.

He has said some terrible things and is wrapped up in his whiteness, that his hate for non-Whites has become a sickness.

His comments reminds me of the rapes in the ‘Handmaids’ Tales’. He would justify those acts/abuses. It’s men like him and trump who are normalizing racial discrimination and sexual abuse/harassment what the hell is becoming of this society since trump took office? It’s going downhill.

I would say that sadly, these women think that their husbands are probably smarter than they are on this issues, and they have to follow them. They probably think that someone like King is "good" for them and their family , and "people like them"

the absolute truth that good things do result from great evil is no defence of evil. We've no way to know what the world would look like with out such. To say the world would be less advanced with out this is just a foolish as saying we would be more advanced without religion.

the fact is a bad act might be the right thing to do... but that is by no means a reason to suggest bad things ought to exist.

Keep it friendly! Aren't lies and slander supposed to be "sins"? Or is trolling something one does when they lack both an intelligent point AND a life?

(And for those still about Bill Maher's dumb jokes from about 3 years ago, can they explain exactly WHY it was "racist "? It didn't attack anyone else or demean anyone else. It used an historically accurate term in a satirical manner. Or is ANY usage of the so-called "N word" automatically "racist "? Would that then make "To Kill a Mockingbird " a "racist " book or film, because that word was used in it ? How about "The Defiant Ones" or "In the Heat of the Night " or "12 years a Slave" or "Do the Right Thing " or "Pulp Fiction "? That word is used in all of these films. How about "All in the Family " or "The Jeffersons" or "SNL" or "The Sopranos "?

WHY am I even asking these questions? An intelligent person already knows the answers. And anyone else will think that they are "scoring points "... trolls gotta troll... )

And as I wrote in the Proud Boys thread, I grew up in an environment where racially motivated attacks and harassment were not uncommon. You call me a nasty name unprovoked, and I will respond in kind. What's wrong with treating people EXACTLY as they treat you? Turning the other cheek only gives them another place to hit you... I believe in self defense, and therefore violence is sometimes a necessary evil... and I never claimed to be a pacifist

I guess lies are sins... I have never really used the idea of something being a sin against anyone--unless pointing out hypocrisy.


I do not troll, I express my views and do so within the rules.


the Maher was in 2017... your twisting to defend it as a joke is nothing new.

the fact that it is used in fiction is not the same as it being used as a joke. I do however think it is over used... I am surprised that Quentin Tarantino uses it so much and gets away with it. I really do not see its use in his movies as any more defensiblethat the old exploitation movies....

as far as the likes of proven bigot Spike Lee... he is making a mistake by using it... see there is a legal concept of community standard. That is if a given community generally accepts some conduct as acceptable by some then it would be in general acceptable by anyone.

Still haven't received an explanation why the joke was "racist " .., and I guess we never will..,

And if someone calls Spike Lee a "bigot " but pretends to have never even heard of the subject of this very thread, Conservative Republican Congressman Steve King, and has taken great pains to defend HIM and give him a pass.,. Well, that tells me all I need to know...
