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.
Marco Rubio Believes “Boogaloo” Groups are Responsible for Leftist Mayhem Sweeping Across the Country
Like clockwork, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is advancing mainstream media narratives during the current wave of rioting taking place across the nation.
On May 30, 2020, Rubio tweeted “News networks missing a big story In city after city we have a rogues gallery of terrorists from Antifa to “Boogaloo” groups encouraging & committing violence They may not be ideologically compatible but share a hatred of govt & police & are taking advantage of the protests.”

Indeed, Antifa and leftist groups adjacent to their cause have exploited protests to engage in flagrantly criminal acts such as looting and rioting.
However, the mentioning of “Boogaloo” groups is laughable.
First off, talk of “Boogalo” is done in jest and only confined to the Internet.
It has not manifested itself in a coherent form as far as physical politics is concerned.
Secondly, right wing protesters have behaved themselves peacefully in the last few months.
The same cannot be said about Antifa and its leftist cohorts.
It would behoove Rubio to get the facts straight and take the Left exclusively to task for this mayhem.
The media is already trying to change the narrative by blaming the riots on “white supremacists” and far right groups.
It makes sense for elected officials on the Right to get the facts straight and not fall for media disinformation.
For establishment figures like Rubio, this may be too much to ask for.
