[su_right_ad]Congressman Peter King, who believes the Senate torture report is just a distraction from Obamacare, and who believe’s you hate America if you’re for the report, doesn’t believe we’ve tortured anyone.

“We’re not talking about anyone being burned or stabbed or cut or anything like that. We’re talking about people being made to stand in awkward in positions, have water put into their nose and into their mouth. Nobody suffered any lasting injuries from this…

“I don’t believe these are torture at all. For instance, waterboarding, there were medical personnel present during the whole time. It creates tremendous discomfort — there’s no doubt about it. It creates tremendous fear, but the fact is there was no lasting damage to these people and we got information from them, which is very helpful,” King Told W-CBS in New York.

“We’re not talking about anyone being burned or stabbed or cut or anything like that. We’re talking about people being made to stand in awkward in positions, have water put into their nose and into their mouth. Nobody suffered any lasting injuries from this.”

    Another fringe right subhuman gets on its hind legs to howl at the restrictions of civilization.

    Anyone want to guess how long it would take these fascist pigs to allow the police to use their, “enhanced interrogation” techniques against all of us?

    this fool is fk’n sick and seriously delusional.

    As Rachael Maddow just pointed out ‘No one suffered any lasting injuries ….unless you count death.’

    He can’t possibly be that stupid, or think that we are.

    • Tommy6860 December 11th, 2014 at 12:10 am

      Maybe not stupid, rather just being the typical cold-hearted GOP prick that he is.

    • granpa.usthai December 11th, 2014 at 12:14 am

      sometimes I start to wonder until I remember they’re the ‘master race’ – so to them it doesn’t really matter if anyone else believes them or not – they are still the ‘master race’ – and just as F’d up at the last ones were.

      • Carla Akins December 11th, 2014 at 4:13 am

        You make an excellent point, and the realization makes me sad.

    • chiguy8288 December 11th, 2014 at 12:24 am

      Gruber thought you were Carla.

      • Carla Akins December 11th, 2014 at 4:10 am

        Gruber is an incredibly intelligent elitist you with no social skills. He’s not stupid, he’s clueless. King on the other hand…

      • AnthonyLook December 11th, 2014 at 5:17 pm

        Gruber, lol. Can you spell “fizzled out”. Do you hear the crickets chirping? Can you sense how stupid and desperate you sound?

    • rg9rts December 11th, 2014 at 1:39 am

      He is

  6. jsutton December 10th, 2014 at 10:31 pm

    He forgot to mention the rectal feeding.

    • tiredoftea December 10th, 2014 at 10:41 pm

      No, he just was hoping to keep that for himself.

  7. burqa December 10th, 2014 at 10:45 pm

    The obvious thing to do, then, is for King to be put in one of these “awkward” positions, on camera, and see how he takes it.
    One common position is for the person to stand with their back to a wall. Then they take one step forward and bend at the knees until they are at a 90 degree angle with their back against the wall. It looks as if they are sitting.

    Hannity likewise belittled waterboarding, but has not yet kept his word to be waterboarded.

    These dunces do not realize the contradiction in their statements. After all, if it is just an “awkward” position that is not very troubling, then why do they think the prisoner talked? Why do they think something so bland and inconsequential would cause a hardened jihadist to talk, when they had refused previously?
    It doesn’t make sense.

  8. Jake December 10th, 2014 at 10:56 pm

    i’m sure this terrorist supporter also thinks that his beloved (and Gaddafi-funded) IRA didn’t really torture people when they knee-capped them. Jeez, talk about selective memory.

  9. AAASuperPatriot December 10th, 2014 at 11:04 pm

    What a BSer.

    I’ll bet that Peter King screams like a baby when the server accidentally gives him sparkling instead of still drinking water.

  10. Tommy6860 December 10th, 2014 at 11:33 pm

    These wing-nuts are utter sociopaths. Why?, because these dim-bulbs think that the memory of the physical abuse passes by, once these horrors are done being used on the victims. FFS!

    • whatthe46 December 11th, 2014 at 12:06 am

      i suppose PTSD would be a myth in their books.

      • Tommy6860 December 11th, 2014 at 12:09 am

        Haha, I can actually see them cutting funding to vets for that reasoning.

  11. granpa.usthai December 11th, 2014 at 12:11 am

    ha,ha,ha – WHITE RACIST Republicans have such a sense of humor. More people died from starvation in Nazi Concentration camps than were gassed in the showers, isn’t that hilarious, Pete?

    • rg9rts December 11th, 2014 at 1:39 am

      You should see him out our allies …like Jordan

  12. Booya Bible December 11th, 2014 at 12:55 am

    Peter King has jumped the shark on so many issues of late. I really think he’s suffering from dementia. I’m dead serious. I have never heard a man make so many Glen-Beck-esque comments in such a short period of time: Eric Garner, Gruber-gate, now this? I do think his cognitive ability is compromised. I really do.

    • rg9rts December 11th, 2014 at 1:38 am

      Pandering to his moronic base in Long Island…they make Hitler look like a communist

  13. rg9rts December 11th, 2014 at 1:37 am

    I wonder what awkward positions King would assume with a couple live electrodes in his scrotum …….amazing how the gopee minimize the horrors of torture..good nazis ….except for McCain who knows what it is really all about.

    • Larry Schmitt December 11th, 2014 at 7:35 am

      And it’s really incredible that the only conservatives who are completely against torture are those like McCain, who have been through it. How is it the rest of them can’t understand it’s wrong without experiencing it personally? There was a PSA on the Daily Show last night from a human rights organization, with several former CIA and FBI agents who had seen this stuff, and they all said it’s wrong. I wonder if their statements would have any impact on people like King. Probably not, if McCain’s didn’t.

      • rg9rts December 11th, 2014 at 8:14 am

        You have to have empathy and feeling for your fellow man…all viewed as serious character flaws by the gopee… Like their anti abortion stand… till the fetus leaves the womb and by some miracle transforms into a parasite on society.

  14. Roctuna December 11th, 2014 at 7:51 am

    Wonder how he’d feel if the Brits had interrogated his IRA buddies using the same awkward positions?

  15. Khary A December 11th, 2014 at 9:33 am

    And the winner for the Himmler award for spinning the truth goes to?!? * I’m so nervous I can’t open the envelope*…..CONGRESSMAN PETER KING WITH ” AWKWARD POSITIONS”!!!!

  16. AnthonyLook December 11th, 2014 at 5:14 pm

    Republicans can’t lie themselves out of this report. The world is the judge and jury. The Bush Administration and it’s culpable minions are for the most part, forever prisoners within the confines of this country and they leave a horrendous historical legacy.

  17. cecilia December 11th, 2014 at 6:32 pm

    I wonder what awkward position king would be with my shoe up his butt??
