A Double Dose Of Assholery From Rep. Steve King

Teabagger US House Rep. Steve King, whose relentless loonery (see below) is just a half-step behind Louis Gohmert, began the day by mocking the health of Hillary Clinton, just as White Jesus would want. Also getting attention today is King wishing luck to Frauke Petry, the chairwoman for Germany’s far-right and virulently anti-LGBT Alternative fΓΌr Deutschland party, which currently holds zero seats in the Bundestag, but is gaining ground in the state legislatures, where they now about 10% of the seats. That tweet includes a smiling photo of King, Petry, and Dutch extremist Geert Wilders, who was banned from the United Kingdom for inciting racial hatred.

PREVIOUSLY ON JMG: Steve King says nobody at Pulse would have been shot if all the patrons had guns. Steve King accuses Donald Trump of buying endorsements. Steve King says it’s your duty to God to vote for Ted Cruz. Steve King says now that same-sex marriage is legal, people will start marrying their lawnmowers. Steve King introduces bill to strip federal courts of jurisdiction over marriage laws. Steve King declares that no gay person has ever gone to heaven. Steve King declares that gay people deserve zero civil rights. Steve King introduces bill to strip US citizenship from babies born domestically to non-citizen parents. Steve King declares gays are the most unhappy people he’s ever met. Steve King declares that he can spot illegal immigrants by their shoes. Steve King declares that gays deserve to be discriminated against if they “flaunt” their orientation. Steve King declares that if Obama is elected, Al Qaeda will be “dancing in the streets.”

    If I see just ONE MORE KING4GONGRESS sign around here, I may snap!

    • agcons

      Could you try channelling that into snapping the signs instead?

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        I have a plan.

        • EweTaw

          Just go around at night with a can of spray paint and draw swastikas on all that you find. Truth in advertising and all that.

        • The stupid… it barely smolders. Like the neurons struggling to fire inside this breathtakingly ignorant man’s sub-normal brain.

        • EweTaw

          I saw that unedited snippet a week ago. How does someone that stupid fill out a voter registration card and then how do they find the polling place and THEN how to they figure out how to vote?

          • I honestly wonder if this man is in danger of drowning whenever it rains.

            “Huh, whut’s that hittin’ mah hat?” ((gurgle…))

          • Bomer

            I’m shocked he doesn’t have to have a constant reminder to keep breathing in and out.

          • clay

            I’m not letting my crazy uncle vote this time– if he can’t (easily) form new memories, if he can’t make an informed decision about his own housing and health care, then he can’t make an informed decision about president after the last year / year and a half.

          • EweTaw

            just take him out for ice cream. Let him choose vanilla or chocolate. Then surprise him buying a cone with both flavors on it. He’ll be happy and won’t miss a thing.

          • clay

            That’s a nice distraction. What he keeps asking for is $1500 for a weekend with hookers. Maybe fries with BOTH chili AND cheese would work?

          • olandp

            Hell Clay, give him some hookers, you don’t have to spend $1500 on them. I’ll bet you can get some that are good enough for less than $100. Since he can’t remember anything new, they don’t even have to actually do anything, just tell him he was the best!

          • clay

            right . . . so he can get bed bugs and gonorrhea, . . . again?

          • olandp

            Who says he has and can?

        • Falconlights

          God, my birth family is from KY and TN and they aren’t this stupid.

          • JR

            He’s got the adjuster tab thingy on his hat pretty tight. Microcephaly?

          • No, the hats are all that overlarge, in case Trump wants to wear one, so as to give his head-ferret enough room to turn around inside.

    • safari

      I’ve met my family. I believe it.

      • FAEN

        They get their ‘news’ from FB, info wars and Cluster Fox like some of my family as well?

        • safari

          They don’t internet. But they do mainline Fox. I was told Hillary has a hit list a couple weekends ago. I said good, I hope to see her slay her enemies. It got the words to stop.

          • FAEN

            Oh I can do you one better. In 2012 some of my relatives insisted that President Obama had ordered 67 guillotines(from where and why 67 I have no idea)so he could start killing Christians in the WH lawn!

            After I picked myself up off the floor I tried to get more details and of course it was some crap their pastor had yammered about in church that he had gotten off some right wing site. Because he’s a pastor they believe him. He’d NEVER lie πŸ™„

            We don’t talk politics too much anymore because when I give them facts that I can back up with multiple credible sources I’m ‘attacking them’.

    • Ninja0980

      When people like this are elected again and again, believe it.

    • FAEN

      Never underestimate the stupidity of the American public.

      • Or the whoreish addiction to ratings and ad revenue for the various media outlets and broadcasters. If they’d just strangled the Trump candidacy in its crib by denying it the unlimited attention they lavished upon him, we wouldn’t be in this mess.

      • olandp

        They elected Ronald Reagan, twice.

        • FAEN

          I know right. And Bush twice as well.

    • FAEN

      I still believe Hillary will win but it shouldn’t have been this close. At all.

      • JW Swift

        I’ve been hoping that it would be a landslide for the Democrats in general, as a serious “refudiation” of just how far-right the Rethuglicans have become, but it looks like we may just have to settle for a plain win.

        • FAEN

          I fear you may be correct but I’m trying to be positive about it all. It’s too depressing to think how many in our country are still so fucking racist.

    • bkmn

      We really need to work on the Pence being one heartbeat away from the Presidency angle.

      • B Snow

        That won’t play well with Trump’s fans, but it will go over HUGE with religious conservatives. Unless we remind them that he caved on Indiana’s bathroom bill?

  • bkmn

    He is king of the asshats.

    One time I arranged for a group of undergraduates to attend the big gay midwest conference at Iowa State. We crossed into Iowa and stopped at the welcome center. The first words from the welcome desk ladies were “Oh, I bet you’re going to Ames for the conference.” Either we were very gay or Iowa’s welcome center has great gaydar.

  • EweTaw

    I asked my lawnmower to marry me, but it said “No.” So, I had to cancel the Al Qaeda dancers I had reserved perform at our wedding. There is no justice in the world.

    • bzrd

      I understand your pain. I married mine and then it said, “NO children !”

    • bkmn

      You should have had a dowry of 12 cantelope calves, then no one would turn you down.

      • BobSF_94117

        Somehow, cant-elope seems inappropriate for a betrothal.

  • Ninja0980

    And yet, he will easily win reelection again and again until he retires or dies in office.
    Bottom line is Hillary rightfully called out Trump and King supporters for what they are, vile bigoted racists who elect those who think like them.

    • Franciscan

      I just looked up 4th Congressional district of Iowa, and the pop. is 95.8% white (according to a Wikipedia article). So I imagine that the district is safe for lunatic congressmen as long as they’re white. Absent some minority migration into the area, where would an opposition candidate come from? A white soccer mom with an actual sense of decency?

  • Michael Smith

    Pardon the O/T but here’s more evidence Trump is using his Foundation as his own personal bank account and avoiding taxes in the process:

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/trump-directed-23-million-owed-to-him-to-his-charity-instead/2016/09/26/7a9e9fac-8352-11e6-ac72-a29979381495_story.html

    • JR

      I think the terms “money laundering,” “self-dealing,” and “tax evasion” apply here.

      • clay

        He’s too stupid / disconnected to make the tax evasion stick, so they’ll have to go with the other two.

        • JR

          Cagey is probably more accurate, or at least properly schooled by his lawyers in how to respond.

          I fully believe he knows, but is also smart enough to maintain plausible deniability (or pays for it to be orchestrated for him.)

          • clay

            Agreed, that’s why I put in disconnected, rather than just stupid. And since he uses tax attorneys it’s hard to force them to testify against him.

    • Sadly Fahrenthold kinda buried the lede in that article and didn’t include the obvious conclusions, that Trump is in fact funding his obscenely opulent lifestyle via tax-evaded income.

      There is one detail in the whole mess which could cause it all to unravel: With respect to Trump’s Foundation, they don’t seem to spend anything on actual lawyers or legal representation. (There is, I believe, a pittance spent back in 2010 or thereabouts…an amount so low, it could’ve been nothing but a billed phone call to a law firm.) Bad legal advice could’ve been a cover, but if that was the case, who are the lawyers giving that advice? Don’t seem to be any.

      Which could possibly suggest Donald, through his sons, has simply been doing whatever the hell he wants. It would fit with his constant assertions he knows more about everything than everyone else.

      • clay

        That would go along with how he’s conflated his campaign “volunteers” and his corporate employees.

  • GayOldLady

    “King declares that no gay person has ever gone to heaven.”

    The only way that’s true is if there is no heaven or if it isn’t fabulous enough.

    • JR

      When people say things like that, I just like to ask them, “There were plenty of them there the last time I visited,” then just walk away smiling smugly.

        Er… “tell them”, not “ask them”…

    Tagging Geert Wilders in the tweet might get positive feedback from basket dwellers, but not so much from civilized society.

    I don’t know. Sounds like King either needs medication, stat, or he’s been off them.

  • Bill Post

    I’m sure his poll numbers went up 5 percentage points… in other news ” Hillary… spawn of Satan …or just plain evil? Tonight on Fox.”

    • JR

      Well, I (and others) elected a corpse to Missouri’s open US Senate seat (his widow served in his stead), I might as well vote for Satan’s spawn next.

      Both were/are the better choices than their respective alternatives.

  • olandp

    He is right about one thing, no gay has ever gone to heaven. Since heaven doesn’t exist no gays have gone there, but no heterosexual has either. My one regret is that there is also no hell for Steve King to go to, but that won’t stop me from saying, “Go to hell Steve King.”

    • grada3784

      How could heavenly music be heavenly without gays?

  • JoeMyGod

    Aaand King just happily retweeted somebody calling him a “white nationalist.” The racists are open and proud now, thanks to Trump. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bbd52ab6b2a58d4e4f4a10e4c8fea90abd3a56a68c1b83b0adc654a3a10dd622.jpg
