    "When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying the cross." --unknown-probably not Sinclair Lewis


    Can Iowa ger rid of this extreme fananic with redistricting?

    Way at the bottom of the barrel of congressional rankings, you find the worst of the worst, the extremists and fanatic who have crossed over into dangerous territory and are flat out anti-American. Iowa has one of those, Congressman Steve King. He is in the rarefied company of deranged kooks like Mean Jean Schmidt (R-OH), Tim Walberg (R-MI), Patrick McHenry (R-NC), Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA), Michele Bachmann (R-MN), and Dan Burton (R-IN). These are the zeroes, members who believe completely in their own distorted, super-ideological vision of a fascist America. When it comes to the tough substantive votes, not one has ever strayed from the insane to join their colleagues to try to make America function better. Steve King is a hard core lunatic. We asked Matthew Grimm, a proud resident of Iowa, to tell us what is up with the deranged man his state sends to the House of Representatives. Matthew's report:

    That Steve King (R-Crazy) said what he did on Friday over the airwaves of KICD in Spencer, IA, is not, in and of itself, the most odious aspect of Republican Party thinking in the 21st century. King actually deserves some props for articulating the cartoonish, ascendancy-based worldview held by too many of the party's rank-and-file, but kept obfuscated from too many others by placebo talking points of "family values" and War of Tactics.

    King could only have been more true to his party and constituency, in western Iowa and linear-thinking right-wing fear-motivated reactionaries everywhere, if he had just called Obama a “n-word.”

    For the congressman bespoke the purer, too often unspoken doctrine that has crashed and burned in the last seven years, and that is the real issue to be weighed in this year’s election cycle: the notion that, in America, there is an Elect, a proper, stolid class of people given divine dispensation to rule by fiat and caprice. Notwithstanding the pluralism upon which our Republic bases its most fundamental function, notwithstanding even that conservatives’ own dogma conflates “liberty” with individuals being judged on their own merits, no, King has stripped off the Emperor's Brooks Brothers to reveal SS jackboots underneath. King, refreshingly if creepily, minces no words: if you do not conform to the "optics"-- his word-- of the 43 European descended white men who have heretofore served as chief executive, you are unfit for the position. Unless, he says, you show yourself a good boy and toe the Massuh's line.

    Let's go to his own words, as reported at the Spencer Daily Reporter, and sent out over the airwaves by KICD, with video evidence posted over at CrooksandLiars:

    I'm gonna say something here that I haven’t said in public, but I think it’s time to start thinking about.

    I don’t wanna disparage anyone because of their race or their ethnicity or their name, whatever the religion of their father might have been-- [but] I’ll just say this then: If you think about the optics of a"Barack Obama" potentially getting elected president of the United States, and I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world, what does it look like to the world of Islam?

    More crazy fanatics
    Here are a few moral upright caring family men writing our laws.  If you are enjoying a rape, of course you will not get pregnant.  Can republican lawmakers walk naked on water in the Sea of Galilee.  The questions of the day answered by republicans.

    Rep. Todd Akin, a tea party candidate who is challenging incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill in the closely watched race, was asked in a local television interview about whether he supports access to abortion in the case of rape.
    "It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare,” Akin said, referring to conception following a rape. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child."

    According to a 1996 study by the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, an estimated 32,101 pregnancies result from rape each year. The journal put the national rape-related pregnancy rate at 5% among victims age 12 to 45.

    The answer by Akin -- who sits on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology -- led to instant condemnation from his opponent and women's advocates.

    McCaskill tweeted, "As a woman & former prosecutor who handled 100s of rape cases, I'm stunned by Rep Akin's comments about victims this AM."

    Staten Island's Michael Grimm was named as one of the six Republican congressmen who took a boozy late-night swim in the Sea of Galilee,

    Six republican congressmen on a fact finding trip to Israel, paid for by tax payers, got drunk and went swimming nude in the Sea of Galilee.
    Kevin Yoder and other republican representatives, including Dan Quayles son, were reprimanded. Sad thing: there were children and wives present. So much for family values.  The Sea of Galilee is the site where the Bible says Jesus walked on water. According to a report, other Republican congressmen, including Rep. Steve Southerland (R-Fla.), Rep. Tom Reed (R-N.Y.), Rep. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), Rep. Jeff Denham (R-Calif.), and Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.) also swam during the trip, although Yoder is the only one said to have stripped naked.
    Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kansas) apologized Sunday night after reports surfaced that he was among more than a dozen congressional leaders and staff who swam in the Sea of Galilee during a fact-finding trip to Israel last August — and that the lawmaker stripped naked before jumping into the holy site.

    Happening right now .........................that hateful bigoted birther.......................liar
    (CNN) - Mitt Romney began his stump speech in Michigan on Friday with a joke which raised a sensitive issue: birth certificates.

    "I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born," he said. "Ann was born at Henry Ford hospital, I was born at Harper hospital. No one has ever asked to see my birth certificate. They know that this is the place that we were born and raised."

    Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colorado)

    Did you hear about this? Here’s what Republican Congressman Mike Coffman said about President Obama in a closed-door fundraiser:

    "I don'' know whether Barack Obama was born in the United States of America. I don't know that. But I do know this, that in his heart, he's not an American. He's just not an American."

    I was doing a search on DHub to find a previous thread on Steve King and came across this thread on "fanatics" from 2012. As everyone knows, Steve King, a fanatic, created controversy once again, with this quote from him speaking in Iowa:

    "What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?" he said at the event in Urbandale, Iowa.

    "Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages taken place and whatever happened to culture after society? I know I can't certify that I'm not a part of a product of that."

    King has been condemned by Democrats and some Republicans for his views on rape and incest. The news media are all over it. However, if you are a true scholar of the Bible as Steve King claims to be, then technically he is correct. According to the Bible, (nothing explicit however), Adam and Eve copulated and had three sons, Cain, Abel and Seth. It is less clear if they had any daughters, but this passage and version of the Bible seems to make more sense. However, I certainly would have to yield to Dutch's expertise on this matter Wink.

    "When God created man, he made him in the likeness of God. 2 Male and female he created them, and he blessed them and named them Man when they were created. 3 When Adam had lived 130 years, he fathered a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth. 4 The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters. 5 Thus all the days that Adam lived were 930 years, and he died. Genesis 5:1-5".

    So how did the children of Adam and Eve multiply if not by incest and perhaps rape?

    Just saying...

    Oh I should have noted that Steve King was elected to the House of Representatives in 2002 and has been re-elected by the good people of his Iowa's district every two years since. None of this "fanatical stuff" seems to matter to them. He will be re-elected in 2020 unless he loses a primary.

    I guess in Iowa they don't have money for "schools" or that whole State consists of dumb "donkey's only"

    They must be the dumbest bunch in the whole world to believe anything in the "human written bible" which was written only about 6000 years ago so where are the "smart" ones who can't think that the writers knew nothing about the start of this planet millions of years ago, let alone when the first "human" (who could not write at all); informed the writers how many kids or dogs they had and since they never learned to count at that time, neither could tell the writers how "old" they were. Also an language did not exist millions of years ago; humans of that time acted the same as "monkey's"

    These evangelicals in Iowa still live in the stone age for sure; how about building some schools there, who teach the "real" stuff without fanatic stupid non proven religion stories. How in hell can they keep electing an total idiot, without any "brains" like Steve King? Must be something in the water there!
