One issued I’ve stressed since Donald Trump’s rise to the top of the GOP has been to make sure people don’t forget that, while he’s a disgusting individual, there are many other Republicans who are just as bad — if not worse.
For example, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) who’s easily one of the most hateful, bigoted, and racist Republicans in Congress. This is someone who’s built a large part of his political career by pushing irrational hatred and fear against immigrants and other people of color. This is a bottom-feeder who said a few months ago that “culture and demographics are our destiny” and we “can’t restore our civilization with someone else’s babies.” He also said it was “sexist” and “racist” to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill.
Oh, then there was the time when a DREAMer confronted him, a woman who is a college graduate, where he proceeded to patronize her by complimenting her English, while forcing her to declare that she wasn’t, in fact, a drug smuggler.
Well, King reminded everyone what coldhearted, racist bastard he is on Wednesday when he said that Congress doesn’t have to do anything to protect DREAMers; instead, they can choose to “live in the shadows.”
“They continue to live the objective that they sought to achieve when they illegally entered America,” King told reporters. “Live in the shadows.”
The lowlife doubled-down on his disgusting statement during an interview with CNN.
“Live in the shadows and if you get crossways with the law, then the law requires they be placed in criminal proceedings and go home. I think there’s justice there, but we need to provide justice,” King said.
I’m not sure what’s worse, the absolute cruelty of King’s comments, or the simple fact that he doesn’t seem to have any idea what a “DREAMer” is or who was protected by DACA.
These are not “criminals who chose to illegally enter America” — they were children when they were brought here. Many of whom were so young when they entered the country, they don’t know any other country as home but the United States. They didn’t willfully choose to illegally immigrate here, most had absolutely no choice.
My question is, what’s this vile jackass trying to claim? That someone who was illegally brought into the United States by their parents when they were a young child chose to break the law? Is that what the Republican Party has become, an organization that now considers small, immigrant children “criminals”?
There aren’t words to describe how embarrassed and disgusted I am that scumbags like Rep. Steve King are allowed to represent this country. Anyone who’s ever supported such a detestable human being should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
