Drugbo Gets His Day In Congress – Rep. Steve King (R-IA)

29 Oct

Here is Rep Steve King, Republican of Iowa, ambushing NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell with the false equivalencies argument. This raises the question as to why a member of Congress should be trying to browbeat a corporation on behalf of Limbaugh, with “facts” which are at best disputed. Let’s get into Representative King –

In March 2008, King predicted on Heraldo Rivera’s Faux News Show that Al Quaeda would be “dancing in the streets if Obama was elected” –

“The radical Islamists, the al-Qaida … would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on Sept. 11 because they would declare victory in this war on terror…His middle name does matter, it matters because they read a meaning into that.”

“[I]f I am wrong, Geraldo, and we elect Obama to the presidency and he declares defeat, if they don’t dance in the streets, I will come and apologize to you and everybody in America. But I’m saying, I’m right.”

Congressman Steve King (R-IA) is known for his outrageous and disgusting comments. In the past he’s been quoted as comparing immigrants to livestock, calling undocumented workers a “slow-moving terrorist attack”, claiming that immigrants have murdered more Americans than the combined death toll in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2002, comparing the abuses at Abu Ghraib to mere “hazing” and waging a war against “secularists” who want to “eradicate Christ from Christmas.”

“We could also electrify this wire with the kind of current that would not kill somebody, but it would be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time.” 1Rep. Steve King, on ideal border fences, immigrants, and livestock.

King was one of only 11 members of Congress to vote against the $52 billion aid package (one that was passed unanimously by the Senate) 11 days after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Louisiana and Mississippi coasts.

King was the lone Congressman in a 399 – 1 vote this year to Place a Plaque honor the role slaves played in building the Capitol Building, claiming

“Last night I opposed yet another bill to erect another monument to slavery because it was used as a bargaining chip to allow for the actual depiction of ‘In God We Trust’ in the CVC. The Architect of the Capitol and liberal activists opposed every reference to America’s Christian heritage, even to the extent of scrubbing ‘In God We Trust’ from the depiction of the actual Speaker’s chair in the U.S. House of Representatives.”

So, Congressman Steve King finding nothing “racist” in any of Limbaugh’s comments is like the KKK finding nothing wrong with cross burning.

    So Rusky gets punked because he does not fact check (Not the first time)? Wow, what a surprised.

    Oh, and when contronted that he was punked, he defended himself by saying “we stand by the fabricated quote because we know Obama thinks it anyway” (Yeah good try to save face, what a loser)

    After so many years of mis-labeling and mis-characterizing others he gets smacked down by the NFL “Not For Limbaugh”. Poor little Rusky his feelings are still hurt, way to go NFL, great job!

    P.S. Now I know why he lost the weight, and will be a pageant judge, he hopes on getting a date, creepy.

      If the stories about Drugbo jetting off to the Caribbean child prostitution hotspot for “weekend getaways” is true – he may not be in to grown women…

      Or women at all.
