There’s really no hope for us, is there?
I mean, we expect him to be a racist dipshit but wasn’t quite expecting a defense of rape and incest here:
Rep. Steve King told an Iowa crowd Wednesday that humanity might not exist if not for rape and incest throughout human history.
“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” he said at the Westside Conservative Club in Urbandale, Iowa. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”
The Republican was discussing his defense of not allowing exceptions for rape and incest in the anti-abortion legislation he tried to pass in Congress. Republican leadership had prevented bills he sponsored on banning abortions from advancing through the House, despite GOP support for the measures, King said.
I’m not sure why the dialect coach seemed to express amazement at how natural Mark Wahlberg and Matt Damon could switch to a Boston accent. I mean, they are from Boston. And Alec Baldwin’s accent in The Departed was terrible.
