Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is being attacked for making a pro-life argument, having his words twisted by liberal pundits in an attempt to make him sound as if he is justifying 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 told an event in Urbandale, Iowa on Wednesday.
“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,” he added.
King was defending his legislation to ban any exceptions for abortions in the rare instances of rape or incest, a bill that was killed by Republican leadership despite tremendous constituent support for the measure. King was able to garner an impressive amount of Republican co-sponsors for his bill, showing his skill as a lawmaker.
“I’ve got 174 people who say they don’t want exceptions for rape and incest because they understand it is not the baby’s fault, to abort the baby, because of the sin of the father, and maybe sometimes the sin of the mother too,” he said to the Westside Conservative Club. “And so I refused to do that.”
This isn’t the first time in 2019 that the fake news media has come to destroy King’s reputation. He was hammered by Democrats and establishment Republicans alike after he was misquoted earlier this year by the New York Times in an attempt to vilify him as a racist.
“People think it was an organic media feeding frenzy, but no, it was orchestrated from the beginning,” he said. “They had told me, ‘Heads up before Christmas: They’re going to try to drive you out of office and get you to resign.’ Within 24 hours, you had people saying, ‘Resign, resign, resign.’ Why? Because the New York Times misquoted me?”
The reason the establishment is out for King’s scalp is because he’s the most conservative lawmaker in Congress. King is not only the most pro-life Congressman, but he is also the loudest advocate for immigration restrictions proposed by President Donald Trump – including a border wall.
He even came up with a model to build the border wall that he showed the Trump administration in 2017.
“I built that model more than 10 years ago because people were saying, ‘We can’t build it. It’s too hard.’ And so I just put the model together,” said King, who founded a construction firm in 1975. “I just put it together piece by piece to show them how easy it is to build a wall.”
“I’m not interested in being the construction company that does this, but my little old company has the capability to build a mile of it a day. And so, what I envision is, I want to ask President Trump, ‘How tall do you want it, and you take care of making it beautiful,’” King added. “I have also put together an estimate on this, and it’s sophisticated. It’s like six pages long.”
The political establishment of both parties want to smear and destroy King because he is a man of action, willing to courageously defend Western Civilization against the scourge of cultural Marxism. King is likely to have several GOP primary challengers next year, as he fights to keep his Congressional seat as a marked man.
Ilhan Omar’s Grandfather Was a Government Official in One of Africa’s Worst Dictatorships
Talk about ‘systematic oppression.’
As Minnesota Congresswoman Ilhan Omar accuses American civilization of being a “system of oppression,” it appears that the progressive Democrat has provided little to no public information on her own grandfather’s activities and public duties as a government official in one of Africa’s worst dictatorships.
Omar has described her grandfather, Abukar Omar, as the Director of the National Marine Transport in Somalia in the 1980’s and possibly earlier, serving in the government of then-President Siad Barre. Barre, who took power in 1969, originally governed the country as a Marxist-Leninist before switching his Cold War allegiances to the United States in the late 70’s.
Barre’s government is known as a prolific human rights abuser, persecuting the nation’s Isaaq tribe in a series of government sponsored killings that scholars have referred to as a “forgotten genocide.” Estimates of the civilian casualties of the Isaaq genocide range from 50,000 to 200,000 people.
Omar, who was a child at the time, has also described her family leaving Somalia in 1991, the very year that President Barre was overthrown from power in a revolution that continues to have a destabilizing effect on the East African nation to this day.
It’s of some public interest that a more thorough explanation of Akubar Omar’s duties as an official serving under Siad Barre be provided, especially considering the former Barre official was granted refugee status in the United States sometime after Barre was overthrown in Somalia’s 1991 Civil War.
Omar has described her family as understanding that they were “no longer welcome” in the country as a result of the civil war, a development that may very well have come as a result of her grandfather’s work as a nominally high-ranking government official under the Barre regime. Rep. Omar recounted an incident in which what seems to have been a family compound was placed under siege by rebels who vandalized the property in a 2016 profile with the Minneapolis City Pages.
Omar biographies also suggest that some of her aunts and uncles also worked as civil servants under Barre’s government.
An inquiry into Abukar Omar’s official duties as the Director of the National Marine Transport under Barre’s regime was sent to Omar’s press office, and the Congresswoman has yet to respond as of Wednesday night.
Ilhan Omar was also one of the few Democratic members of Congress to decline to formally vote to recognize the Armenian Genocide conducted by the Ottoman Empire after World War I, claiming the United States should be focusing on the legacy of slavery and persecution of Native Americans instead.
Certainly, one cannot be held to account for actions that their extended relatives engage in when they’re a child; but it’s quite rich that Omar has declined to account for her own grandfather’s seeming participation in a very real and historically documented “system of oppression” in any publicly known remarks on the family connection, while castigating American civilization for its supposed injustices.
