I actually had no idea who Steve King was before I read this. Part of me wants to pretend that he's Steven King, but I'm afraid if I pursue that joke then a gyspy girl will show up and make me lose weight until I die.
This Steve King dude said some racist stuff (seemingly mostly about immigration from my research), which apparently surprised people because nobody expects the evil lizard people who run our country to be bigoted on top of it.
"For all that I've been through -- and it seems even strange for me to say it -- but I am at a certain peace, and it is because of a lot of prayers for me, and, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us partly because of that experience."
That's right. This dude just compared his getting in trub-trubs for being a racist to the plight Jesus had to go through.
For those who don't know, Jesus was the original punk icon. He challenged corruption and eventually got killed for it. This dude, on the other hand, is just a flagrant racist.
I've seen some people say that this is an example of "white privilege." But it's really not. In the words of Walter from Lucky Louie...
For some context on why people think he's a dick, check out this section of his Wikipedia page and judge for yourself. But do keep in mind that all the people that are booting him out of the political castle right now probably all feel the same way inside, they're just better at hiding it. None of those people give a fuck about you or anyone else. Only themselves and their bloodlines. All politicians are evil, politics is a sick joke and nobody should have allegience to either side.
