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.
