Gee, I’d hate to get a look at his family tree.

U.S. Rep. Steve King told the Westside Conservative Club on Wednesday that humanity might not exist if not for rape and incest.

“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?” he said at the event in Urbandale, Iowa.

“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.”

The Kiron Republican was defending his position of not allowing exceptions for rape and incest in the anti-abortion legislation he tried to pass in Congress. Republican leadership had prevented the bills he sponsored on banning abortions from advancing through the House, despite GOP support for the measures, King said.

Just because a conception happened in bad circumstances doesn’t mean the result isn’t a person, argued King, who is Catholic.

“It’s not the baby’s fault for the sin of the father, or of the mother,” he said.

He does realize that most babies are born from two people having age-appropriate consensual sex does he not? 

I mean sure, incest and rape have always been around but to identify them as the driving force behind the success of the human species is not factually accurate. 

As for rape not being the baby’s fault, in most cases, it is not the woman’s fault either, and yet if she becomes pregnant she is expected to give birth to and feed and protect her attacker’s child until it can grow up to attack women on its own. 

Steve King is well known for saying outrageous and incredibly ignorant things but this time he may have gone too far.

When even Darth Vader’s daughter refuses to defend you as a Republican, that is a clear signal that you have definitely fucked up.

    That would explain his ugly face and stupid mind. Do people from his state back him on this?

    Just because King and his children weren’t conceived through consensual sex doesn’t mean most of us weren’t.

    Got any room left in the Mad Zoo for aging wingnuts? Or is Sandpoint IDuhHo still the promised land?

    Cause I bet some of the folks in Iowa are thinking about taking up a collection to buy GrayHound tickets for this Steve King and his whole family.

    Maybe Grannie Sarah has some extra rooms since both Truck and the Stool seem to have stopped popping moar of them grandkids out?

    Can I get an Uff da?

    I guess he was trying to articulate that before we had societies and morals and values and ethics, there was a lot of sexing going on which helped early humanity to grow? And raping and pillaging is what these white men are all about. But, now that we as humans have done that evolving thing with societies and morals and such, he wants to go back to caveman times.
    That’s pretty easy with the nukes these crazies are all too willing drop.
    What’s that old saying? WW3 will be fought with nukes and WW4 will be fought with rocks and clubs? Back to free sexing and raping and pillaging, except the babies will have cyclops eyes and no legs from radiation poisoning if conceived at all.

    Well, I guess his remarks explain him and his origins.

    King is so going to lose his seat. Maybe not to his Democratic opponent but to a primary challenger.
