Iowa Congressman Steve King is one of the most detestable, racist, and objectionable people to ever walk the face of the earth. Whether he’s saying horrific things about Hispanic immigrants or doing his best to take health insurance away from millions of Americans, he seems to go out of his way to be a jackass.
In March, King posted this on Twitter:
Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies. https://t.co/4nxLipafWO

Asked about the tweet on CNN, King proudly declared:
“I meant exactly what I said.”
And now, at a time when many Democrats and Republicans are trying to build unity and harmony between the two parties in the wake of the shooting of Congressman Steve Scalise and four others in Virginia, King is trying to shift the blame away from a disturbed man who perpetrated the crime and instead say it’s all former President Obama’s fault.
During an interview he gave to Simon Conway of WHO Iowa radio, King had this to say:
“I do want to put some of this at the feet of Barack Obama. He contributed mightily to dividing us. He focused on our differences rather than our things that unify us. And this is some of the fruits of that labor.”
Then King resorted to the same bullshit we so often hear from Republicans who have no solution to any problem:
“Our whole society and culture has to come together on this. And those are just not platitudes on my part. I’m saying we’ve got leaders out there that can help pull us together but in the end it traces back to our families, to our fathers, to our mothers, to good examples, to the right things being said around the kitchen table, in the living room, in church and in school. And if the culture is gonna be divided, it’s been divided core back to there.”
After eight years of saying President Obama was born in Kenya, was a socialist, and calling him every racist name imaginable, Steve King now wants to blame violence in America on the man who has been more reviled than any American president in history?
Excuse me while I flip off King and spit in his general direction.
