I don’t know how many pigs there are in Iowa, but I can tell you who the biggest one is. Take a look at what passes for humor in the warped, racist, sexist cerebral space that Steve King calls a mind. This is not a matter of political correctness, this is gross insensitivity.
He is a white supremacist, & he is also owned by the farm lobbies. He keeps trying to add an amendment to the farm bill to ban states from passing animal welfare laws. I’m sure he loves finding a way to insult Muslims AND promote factory farm products at the same time.

Everyone should eat pork. Hee haw, ain’t Steve clever? Maybe Joni Ernst can put an apple in his mouth and serve him at her next fundraiser. Is anybody wondering why this clown’s donor cash has dried up, why he had only two people show up to his last town hall, and why he is not exactly swamped with volunteers to get him reelected? Thought so.
I hope all he eats for the rest of his life is bacon until his little cold heart is suffocated with fat.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. And you’ll love this. King recently demanded an apology from a “very active and vibrant left-wing media” who he claimed misquoted him on his recent comments about how rape and incest are a normal part of life. He also claimed that the media “decided to do a hack job.” Oh, and he wants the Republicans to apologize to him, too. The Hill:
“Iowans are significantly more positive than they are negative, and they know it’s a misquote, and they know [The Associated Press] has, I’ll say, retracted the quote that they initially used because they relied on the Des Moines Register, who did the same,” King said, according to video from NBC affiliate WHO. “So when we have a national, viral attack that comes down on a misquote and it’s absolutely proven, all the folks that did that attack, I think they owe me an apology, including my own leadership. I don’t expect that’s going to happen because egos are a little too strong in this business.”
The Des Moines Register last week corrected a quote related to King’s remarks about members of Congress who co-sponsored legislation of his. The AP never issued a retraction of its story.
And, emphatically, the GOP is not going to apologize to Steve King. He’ll be selling snow cones in Hell long before that occurs. Maybe King figures that he’s toast and he’s decided to go out with a bang, making these incredible statements, who knows? But I long to hear his concession speech and see him relegated to the ghost-at-the-banquet club that Dana Rohrabacher deservedly, and finally, went to. Steve King is long overdue for retirement from public life.
