Rep. Steve King isn’t just an ignorant git, he’s also someone who is clearly incapable of ever admitting that he said anything wrong. And he continues to offer the most irrational and dumbest defense of his recent racist remarks about Mexican immigrants. For the record, let’s recount what he said:
“For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”
So according to King, for every smart Mexican immigrant there’s 100 drug runners. And if you criticize him for that, you’re just defending drug dealers:
“If I insulted anybody, it could have only been drug smugglers, just the drug smugglers, and I probably didn’t do an adequate job of insulting drug smugglers, but the people who want to disparage what I said and what they’re really doing is defending drug smugglers,” King told KTIV.
Right. And for every intelligent Republican congressman, there’s 100 alcoholic rapists. And if you criticize me for saying that, you’re obviously just defending alcoholic rapists. Right, Mr. King?
