Rand Paul Flees While Steve King Belittles DREAMers on Immigration (Video)

steve-king-dreamersI’ve seen a lot of cowardly and disgusting things covering politics, but this video is one of the most reprehensible things I’ve ever seen.

It’s a short video of two DREAMers who confronted Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Rep. Steve King (R-IA) concerning their stance on our immigration policies.

But they didn’t really get to confront Rand Paul about his stance.  You see, as soon as the woman in the video identified who she was, Paul hightailed it out of there about as fast as he could.  You know, like the coward that he is.

However, King stayed behind to essentially try to belittle the two individuals who had the courage to confront him on this issue.  I say he “tried” to belittle them because they clearly got the better of him in this confrontation.

The racism and ignorance shown by King was appalling.  Telling the woman (who’s a college graduate), “You’re very good at English.”  Then asking her to clarify that she’s not, in fact, a drug smuggler.  

Seriously, he made her confirm that she’s not a drug smuggler.

Then King turns his attention to a gentleman who’s also a DREAMer and also happens to be a lawyer (he says he was brought here when he was 5).  They debated the legality of what President Obama has done to allow DREAMers to stay here as long as they meet certain criteria.  The gentleman also professed his desire to enlist in the United States military and put his life on the line for this country if need be.

None of this makes any difference to King as he continues to simply insist that they’re here illegally and that’s pretty much all that matters.

But that’s when the most vile part of this entire exchange takes place.  While the gentleman continued to profess his desire to serve this country as a member of the United States military, he points out that one of the first veterans killed in Iraq was an undocumented immigrant.

Did King respond by thanking that hero for sacrificing his life to protect this country?  Nope.  Hell, he didn’t even acknowledge his bravery at all.

What King did do was push the fact that Jose Gutierrez (the veteran they’re speaking about) must have lied to the government in order to enlist in the military.  Even going as far as saying to the gentleman, “He lied to get into the military. Will you admit that?  Will you admit that he lied to get into the military?”

That part of the exchange was probably one of the most revolting things I’ve ever seen anyone say.  To not even recognize that this man fought and died for this country is deplorable.  The only thing King seemed to care about was that he lied to get into the military.

Pathetic.

And off and on you heard some imbecile in the background shouting, “Go home!”  Because, you know, that’s a real mature and adult way to behave.  Though it does perfectly personify the simple-minded idiocy many conservatives have about the issues of DREAMers and immigration as a whole.

But this video has it all.  Rand Paul running away like a coward, some blatant bigotry (and borderline racism) by King, the ignorant conservative in the background shouting “Go home!,” and even the complete disrespect of someone who died fighting for this country.

After watching it I can’t help but feel ashamed that there are those who actually voted for these two individuals.

Watch the confrontation below:

    Rand Paul did the smart. Making should have left too. These too would not even let King finish his comments.n it was a set up from the beginning.

    • Travis Hamilton

      If you could type English, that would be awesome. The hilarious part about this video is that the illegals speak better English than WIlliam Fite.

      Steve King made an absolute ass of himself and he showed that he is just another sheet wearing Klaner. Much like the rest of the Republican party.

      Wouldn’t let King finish his comments? Sure looked like King was the one that kept interrupting. Maybe your OJOS are lying to you.

      • William Fite

        Actually the two dreamers made an absolute ass of themselves. He kept asking simple yes or no questions and of course they would not answer. When they asked King a question once he started to answer, they would interrupt him. That is a common trick.

      • Bea

        sorry I watched the video and thought that King was the one who wouldn’t give the Dreamers a chance to answer. He wouldn’t even stop talking long enough for the to even try to answers. If that is the way he listens no wonder our gov. is such a mess. And his attitude toward a young man who died fighting for this country is appalling. So he lied to join the military which is much more honorable in my view ThEn the likes of Ted Nuggent who lied to GET OUT of fighting for this country. Which guy would you say is more patriotic???!!!

      • Susan

        Everything is black or white for this guy. Yes or No? Like a 5 year old has any choice about their family immigrating illegally? It’s not people who matter to these assclowns. Just a simple yes or no….and then dismissed. I’m sure his black and white issues wouldn’t be a problem for him if it wasn’t for the fact that these DREAMERS are BROWN.

  • Dissenter13a

    The illegals constitute an infestation, posing an existential threat to the planet. Why? They can’t stop breeding like cockroaches. They come over here and pop out seven children (which WE pay for), and whinge that you can’t deport them because “it would break up their family.”

    And then, there is what illegals do to the wage base. I remember when working at a meat packing company meant earning a fairly decent middle-class wage. Screw the young blacks in the cities who can’t even find jobs at Wal-Mart. You don’t care, as long as your ilk can obtain political power.

    Sure, it sucks, but unless you can come up with a better solution, the only one we have available is tough love. The kind that Mexico shows to those who are in THAT country illegally.

    Sixty years ago, Mexico had a population of 25 million. Today, it is nearly five times that, not counting the 30-40 million here. These growth levels are simply unsustainable. While Poli Sci types usually go that route because they can’t do math, you can’t argue with Thomas Malthus.

    We only have one planet. We’ve reached peak food and peak energy, and the real sh**storm of global warming has yet to hit the fan. We only have so much in the way of resources, and even less if you insist upon sustainability.

    We need to end all pretense of jus soli citizenship, round up the illegals, and forcibly eject them. Give them a chance to leave legally, and confiscate all of their assets if they insist on remaining. We already have leads from all of their drivers’ licenses. Let’s pay bounties, if we need to.

    I hate having to be such a hardass on this, but somebody has to be. Give me a viable alternative, and I will listen.

    • OldCowboy

      Anyone who uses the words “infestation” and “cockroaches” to describe illegal immigrants is not interested in an honest discussion about alternatives.

      • strayaway

        The more succinct legal term is “illegal aliens” although for those who are uncomfortable with the word “alien” because it reminds them of Martians or something, the term “illegal non-citizen” would work too. US Residents come in two varieties; citizens and aliens(non-citizens). Aliens(non-citizens) are, in turn, either legal or illegal. I prefer “economic invasion” with regard to the other terms.

        Congress looked at the possibility of doing something with regards to children who were born abroad and were smuggled in with their illegal alien(non-citizen) parents and chose not to do anything about it. Then Obama came along and legislated an unconstitutional edict allowing 800,000 illegal aliens(non-citizens) to stay here although there is no provision for that in US immigration law. Why even have a Congress once presidents make laws? Think of all the money we could save on Congressional pensions if we shut down our window dressing Congress.

      • Susan

        Reagan gave 8 million illegals amnesty in 1985, and guess what? We put 8 million people on the tax rolls and it helped to spur the economic recovery we enjoyed during the Clinton presidency.

      • strayaway

        It was 3 million, not 8 million, in return for Democrat promises to secure the border. Not only did Democrats do nothing to secure the border, Republicans looking for a steady supply of cheap labor joined Democrats in letting the invasion continue. Reagan consequently regretted his once and for all amnesty. I doubt that putting illegal aliens on the tax roll did anything to spur economic recovery. They were already here and also then qualified for more government assistance. Amnesty did encourage at least an additional 12 million illegal aliens to come here for work and/or freebees though. If you are right, then by all means we should just advertise that anyone in the world who wants to come here should. Let’s say 120 million more undereducated, unskilled people showed up in three years. Prosperity would explode and we could all sing. “Happy Days are Here Again”!

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        if U check what was going on in IKES administration with this U can see HE also had the same problem. Seems to me that dems and repubs are equally 2 blame for this mess–

      • strayaway

        It’s pretty close. Ike conducted ‘operation wetback’ to send a large number of illegal aliens back home although Truman sent even more back. Both parties have changed.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        100% accurate
        ======================================
        this election upcoming is– as always– of great interest to see if America is TRULY tired of partisan gridlock

      • A lot of citizens were sent to Mexico, too, because they ‘looked’ Mexican.

      • Eg Kbbs

        Just think of the times in history when some leader started referring to one group or another as vermin, cockroaches, infestation, etc. Really illustrious company, ain’t it ?

      • Kozmo

        Sort of like how the liberals refer to conservatives every single day? That’s what I thought!

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        what EXACTLY are ” conservatives” ( regressives) actually and SPECIFICALLY ‘conserving’???????

      • Django

        that’s actually very accurate–

      • Susan

        Oh please….I can go a week without referring to someone as a “tinfoil hat wearing teabagger” but people have no problem whatsoever in referring to me and people who are likeminded as “libtards” in every political comment board. Even boards that have nothing to do with politics have right wing trolls. Cry me a river Kozmo. You folks can dish it out but you can’t take it.

      • Dissenter13a

        I apologize if accurate use of the language offends you. They constitute an infestation, as that word is defined.

        Perhaps if we used “bunnies” instead, you would prefer it?

        Teehee… you’re smart AND funny!!!

    • jessica22

      Okay… now I understand… you have balls and I’m proud to know you!!

  • OldCowboy

    Steve King is one of the most despicable humans on the planet.

    • Kozmo

      That may well be the case – I don’t personally know the man. BUT… he 100% correct in the assertions he put forth in the video. Sorry.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        as we may be inclined to agree with kosmo here; I will ask: where was KING ( and kozmo) when GW BUSH signed his legislation a few yrs ago enhancing this problem?

      • wimpdick

        It was Obama’s fault.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      • Paul Michael

        Steve King is lucky the girl was calm when HE assertively grabbed her hand and told her to “Stop a minute” (58 seconds in). And even if King is 100% accurate in his assertions (which I am not convinced he is).. Then his “upholding the law” stance can be seen in a similar light as people “upholding the law” for separate bathrooms and water fountains for blacks and whites or Cooperate tax breaks, or the new laws that make it harder for US citizens to protest (due to “noise violations”)…Or any other law that is questionable. Do you not voice your opinion on laws you view as questionable.. or do you sit there silently and “uphold” those laws?

  • Shane

    No one acquitted themselves in this set up confrontation. Rand Paul was a coward but made the best decision of the group. The Dreamers wouldn’t give yes or no answers, wanting to explain themselves. Still, I judge King as the loser of the group. He denied what he has said about ‘Dreamer’s and that it was these young people he spoke of. He ignores the death of a US Veteran (legal or not). He lies when he says the executive branch doesn’t have the authority to set policy in law enforcement. It’s sad to watch.

    • nickyfe

      I wonder why it is that they seem to feel that someone ‘owes’ them citizenship. Her mother came over here to escape from an abusive relationship? This is the only place that she could land on? There are plenty of countries that she could have gone to, but they come here for the free stuff.

      • Dissenter13a

        We should treat Mexican nationals here illegally the same way that they treat the nationals of other countries who are THERE illegally. And their treatment of illegals is not pleasant.

      • wimpdick

        She simply questioned King about providing a path to citizenship for them. She was a small child when brought to this country and has accomplished a lot as she is a college graduate. This country is the only country that many of these young people know. They are American in every way and it’s a shame that law makers such as King can’t find the decency in their hearts to create a path to legal citizenship for these youngsters.

  • William Fite

    These two political activists got their asses handed to them by King. Funny stuff there.

  • Eg Kbbs

    To me, the weirdest part of the conversation was when King (who never graduated college) – as reported by another service – had the following volley:

    ANDIOA …he’s a DREAMer. He graduated from law school.

    KING: Oh and that makes you an authority. […]

    As if a lawyer who is a DREAMer wouldn’t be likely to have an interest in immigration law.

    • Kozmo

      No, as if a dreamer could be objective enough to analyse the law as it stands today and not as they wish to see it. After all, isn’t Rep. King a LAW MAKER? The weirdest part of the conversation are the liberals who refuse to listen, articulate facts and resort to name calling when they can’t put forth a logical and articulate argument.

      • giankeys luvs shemale porn

        republicans as “law makers”???
        based upon completion ratio I would differ with THIS congress; especially the obfuscatory republicans

    • nickyfe

      The funny thing about it is that we have a decorated SOLDIER that accidentally crossed the border to Mexico and has been in jail for months, yet there are people here that feel like because they have been able to get away with it they are entitled to the American Dream. It is the AMERICAN DREAM not the Mexican, Columbian, Guatemalan, Haitian, Korean or Chinese Dream. Get it together in your own country and stop coming here overcrowding ours. We have immigration laws and if they are not followed the law breaker should be deported, if they don’t want to break up their family take them with them. But this stuff has to end.

      • Travis Hamilton

        How does one ACCIDENTLY cross the Mexican border? I have crossed it many times. Its heavily guarded and you have to go thru 4 sets of checkpoints. There is even a place to turn around on the US side just in case you made a mistake and took a wrong turn.

        You are just plain WRONG.

      • Cemetery Girl

        Maybe he had a Bugs Bunny moment, took a wrong turn at Alberque.

      • He did not accidentally cross the border, no matter what he says.

        As Travis said, you are just plain wrong.

  • Kozmo

    Sorry folks, Rep. King is exactly correct. I know this because I understand Constitutional law. I also know this because the only response offered by liberals is to declare “racism” and resort to pointless personal attacks.

    • giankeys luvs shemale porn

      such as the ones many many many regressive republicans on here do?? those ” pointless” personal attacks?????

  • wimpdick

    Do we really want these types of people leading our country? Paul ran out like the chicken that he is and King is one screwed up individual.

  • rossbro

    Run his ignorant ass over with a corn picker. Red chaff might look good.
