Iowa Congressman Steve King once again displays his party’s tone deafness to what is actually happening in America. Per Anomaly at FreakOutNation:


While saying there is “cultural friction” that lingers in this country, he said that compared to transformations in other countries, Selma was “comparatively bloodless.”

As for the stunning absence of GOP leaders, King said, “I don’t know if it’s a mistake, but there is still that bit of cultural friction that’s there.”

King suggested that the friction makes some people feel unwelcome in certain situations.

    “compared to transformations in other countries” But this isn’t other countries. This is “the land of the free”, right? Let’s round up Mr. King and a few hundred of his closest friends, and sic the state troopers and a few hungry police dogs on them, and see how “comparatively bloodless” he thinks that is.

    Steve King is probably one of the most racist and xenophobic members of Congress if one examines his past pronouncements. It certainly says something about the voters of Iowa’s 4th congressional district.

    Steve King is a brainless numbskull. That’s why he feels no pain. He sh!ts through his mouth.

    I got a feeling RepubliCONs are gonna feel even less welcomed in America in the years to come as it slowly dawns on the people’s minds the outright FRAUD carried out by many RepubliCONs in the ‘war on terror’ that built many a bank in Dubai.

    Rewriting history is a practiced art for the GOP……it’s how they express themselves. Fine showing lately from the inheritors of the party of Lincoln.
