STEVE KING: OBAMA SUPPORTS IMMIGRATION REFORM BECAUSE HE'S A RACIST

Rate this Entry
If you ever hear someone from the GOP say that Democratic attacks that the GOP is anti-immigrant are unfair, remember that Steve King is the person given the ranking member position on the House Immigration Subcommittee. ThinkProgress reports on the latest nonsense to come from the mouth of Mr. King:


Today on G. Gordon Liddy's radio show, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) discussed Arizona's new anti-immigration law and claimed President Obama's criticism of it demonstrates "that he has a default mechanism in him...that favors the black person." While majorities of Americans and Arizonans support the new law, King also claimed that even Latinos favor it and that support is only getting stronger, despite "quasi-militant" opposition to the law:

KING: They're getting stronger there because people understand you've got to have the rule of law and, I'll say, the radical quasi-militant Latinos that are leading this; they are willfully misinforming the American people. And by the way I think that starts right down the line from the President of the United States willfully misinforming the American people, the Attorney General doing the same thing. ... [D]o I believe them or do I believe my lying eyes when I read the language and understand that this doesn't...promote racial profiling. In fact it prohibits it.

    Now that the economy is in doldrums, the antis are placing all blame on immigration illegal & legal. Why wasn't the fence put up about 10-20 yrs back when the economy was better? Why wasn't anything done if the system was broken.

    I have a gut feeling that BP could file for bankruptcy & I don't know how it will affect the fledgling economy.

    BP's profit last year was $17billion with revenues upto $250billion. It is a very rich company with good fiscal situation. Regardless of what the analysis today is, two years down the road story will be very different. Once this oil is cleaned up, most settlements will be out of court and very small. Shareholders would prefer to lose out on dividends rather than losing all their wealth with bankruptcy. I doubt if there will be any criminal charges.

    And who is the black person in this situation? AZ Republicans are understandably white; Mexicans/Latinos are mostly Native American blood.... I am utterly confused.

    BP is being treated unfairly because it too in a sense is an immigrant. What happened after all was an accident. They are doing everything possible to cap the leak, to the extent of drilling two relief wells. They have voluntarily waived the $75 million liability cap. I normally buy high growth stocks (technology/biotech) but I have been so impressed by BP's grace under fire that I made a small investment in BP shares today. These kind of accidents will continue to occur and folks should start conserving oil and stop supporting silly slogans like drill baby, drill.

    I agree with USC. The Feds were negligent with the routine inspections on the rig so Obama instead going after BP from the get go, should have fired everyone responsible at MMS.

    Steve King has asked Obama's aunt to testify infront of congress on asylum issue to check if favoritism played a part on her asylum. Oh man!! Poor old lady. Can she live her last few years in peace?
