Racist Steve King – 50% correct but …

Congressperson Steve King is a racist to the core

he says Obama is a Muslim

he is anti-abortion

He said:

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?”

“Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages taken place and whatever happened to culture after society? I know I can’t certify that I’m not a part of a product of that.”

he’s right


he’s Catholic Christian so let’s clear his thick head biblically

Jewish God created man; then woman out of man’s rib or side

woman disobeyed God; ate/shared with man the wisdom fruit

God was angry like hell; threw them both out of the Garden of Eden

(this Jewish myth is also part of Christian and Islamic traditions)

woman/Eve and man/Adam inhabited earth; gave birth to Abel/Cain

Cain was mad at God, so he killed his brother Abel

and he married his sister

thus humanity began with incest

wars, conquests, invasions, patriarchy all contributed to rape/incest

of course, many of us are products of rapes/incest

but then King gets off track totally:

“I’ve got 174 people who say they don’t want exceptions for rape and incest because they understand it is not the baby’s fault, to abort the baby, because of the sin of the father, and maybe sometimes the sin of the mother too.” “And so I refused to do that.”

rapes/incest of the past

lack of awareness of human rights/LGBTQ rights

unequal treatment of women for long long time

does not justify King’s racism/sexism/bigotry/…

nor can there be any rational justification of his anti-abortion stance
