[su_right_ad]Facts are not important when you have an ideology to sell.

In video captured by the Iowa Republican, King went on a long tirade claiming that America is becoming “a third-world country” because of “the things that are coming at us from across the border,” including illegal drugs, Central American children of “prime gang recruitment age,” ISIS, a childhood respiratory illness that has spread in recent weeks, and the Ebola virus.

The ISIS and respiratory disease claims are based on unsubstantiated reports in the right-wing media, while there is absolutely no link between border enforcement and Ebola or the Oklahoma beheading incident…

Later, in response to a question about President Obama’s supposed penchant for golf, King mused on how President Obama wants “to treat people in Africa as if they were American citizens.”

“What is his vision for this country?” he asked. “He must think now that he’s president of the world, that he’s going to treat people in Africa as if they were American citizens and somehow we can’t define this American sovereignty or American citizenship.”

    Steve King and Donald Trump together.

    The only thing missing is a carriage.

    P.S.: No offense to horses!

    This is coming from Tea Party Steve King that idiotically compared President Obama to North Korean dictator.

    As for that Donald Trump, he just has to go fix that carpet on his head.

    Steve King was never the sharpest tool in the shed. I’m surprised he knows what ebola and beheadings are. On the other hand, maybe he doesn’t know and he’s just faking it.

      Michelle Bachmann told him.

    More from the party of hatred and fear…
    But what else do they have to run on?

    What do these two fools have in common?…
    One has a really bad comb over…
    The other has a really really bad comb over.

    It’s amazing that these idiots get elected to the most powerful governmental body in the country. I just saw a stat on All-In that 31% of the US population is white male, yet white males hold 65% of the congressional seats. Factor in assholes like King, and it’s testament to how free education should be made mandatory through college.

    Steven King goes on to say that “Ebola” is the greatest threat to America…
    Or really Steve?..
    One American has died from Ebola..
    Two are actively infected, and most likely will survive…
    Ignorance and fear is what King and his type peddle to the voters.

      Aside from actual casualties from wars, the Flu kills more people in the US in any given year than terrorism and Ebola has killed total people in the world. When are we going to stop the transmission of the Flu virus? It’s still Obama’s fault.

    Deficit falling, employment up. economy recovering. No death panels or FEMA camps. Time to give the rubes something to be afraid of.

    cant say the picture above is worth a 1000 words when the Donald has an ear to ear smile while his pal hands out false tabloid news.

    I keep reading these things. Fear-mongering, hate mongering, that’s all they have. But the irony is so thick it’s honestly knocking me down. ” King went on a long tirade claiming that America is becoming “a third-world country” when OMG they are the ones, these assholes are the ones making this a third-world country all the while spouting off about exceptionalism. These fuckwads, these republican douches are the ones sucking the asses of those that fatten their re-election accounts while they disregard the needs of those they are supposed to “represent”. Pardon my language but I’m really pissed.
