Hack Comedians Erect “Confederate Statue” of Immigration Patriot Steve King
The Hill reported that a pair of comedians created a “Confederate statue” of congressman Steve King, which they placed outside of the Iowa state capitol.
The two pranksters, who are known to attack conservatives, said “We put up a Confederate statue honoring Confederate sympathizer Steve King. Hopefully he will honor his heritage and not take it down.”
The comedians are known as The Good Liars — Davram Stiefler and Jason Selvig — tweeted the photos of the statue, which is only a few inches tall.
Not too long ago, the comedic pair — swapped out copies of Donald Trump Jr.’s book jacket at a store so that it stated “Daddy, Please Love Me: How Everything I Do Is Try To Earn My Father’s Love” instead of having the copy of the actual book titled: “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.”
In a statement to the HuffPost, they said that they carried out their latest prank because they “thought [King] deserves a lasting honor to remind citizens of Iowa who he is.”
“We’ve seen a lot of Republicans fighting the removal of Confederate monuments. So we are going to honor these modern day Confederate defenders by creating monuments for them around the country,” they informed HuffPost. “That way their racism can be preserved forever. After all it’s part of history and shouldn’t be forgotten.”
King has not voiced pro-Confederate comments but has received flack for his pro-immigration restriction views in the past.
Some out of context statements King has made in the past have earned him the ire of both political parties. Fellow Republicans even attacked King and stripped him of his committees. At the moment, he’s fighting to get back on those committees.
What King is going through is part of the politically correct witch hunts that the managerial class launches against anyone who deviates from globalist orthodoxy.
