Steve King Videos
“That’s my congressman – Yankee with a Confederate flag.” by Sean O’Brien, actual constituent of Steve King. This is a great video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us7aobCVpXk
Steve King demonstrates, on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, how to build an electrified fence on the U.S.-Mexico border: If you haven’t seen this, you MUST watch to get the full experience of Steve King’s truly unique kind of crazy. Here’s a text preview, but we recommend watching this live demonstration of his idea of what the wall would be like and specifics on how to construct it. Yep. Video here
“I want to put the fence in but I want to put a wall in, and I designed one. And this is simply to put a trench in the desert floor. We have the ability to put together a machine that would be a slip floor(?) machine that would lay a footing about like this, Mr. Speaker. In fact if you look at the end of that, that’s so you’d have that about 5 feet deep underneath the ground to keep the wall from tipping over. We put a notch in it that allows to put pre-cast panels in it and it would look like this, would be flush with the desert floor. And then you…”
It all makes sense when you get about a minute (58 seconds) in and you hear King say:
“Our little construction company could build a mile a day of this pretty easily.”
Yes, there is a King family construction company. Steve’s son, Dave King, bought the business in 2003. How awesome it would be for his kid to be the one to build that wall! http://kingconstruction.net/about-us/
Steve King supports Dog fighting. Watch Paws Against King wage a local protest chanting, “There’s no excuse for cruelty… There’s no excuse for King!”
Steve King asks, “What have minorities contributed to civilization?” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu-LBS_kpDQ
Steve King compares animal fighting to people fighting and says there’s something wrong with the Humane Society and the rest of us for thinking animals should be protected by the law. 26 second video. Good one if you need a quick surge of anger to get you motivated.
Steve King’s disrespectful, arrogant attitude towards Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in this congressional hearing will make you sick. RFK made the mistake of speaking the truth about CAFOs.
