Steve King questions if there would be any population left if not for rape and incest

Washington (CNN)Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa questioned on Wednesday whether there would be any population left on Earth if not for 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 said in Urbandale, Iowa, according to video posted online by the Des Moines Register, which was first to report on the remarks Wednesday.

"Considering all the wars and all the rape and pillage that has taken place ... I know I can't certify that I was not a part of a product of that," King said. "I'd like to think that every one of the lives of us are as precious as any other life," he added.

The remarks came as King was defending not allowing exceptions for abortion in cases of rape or incest.

The Iowa Republican is a controversial and polarizing figure on Capitol Hill who has a track record of making racist comments that have generated backlash across the political spectrum.

In January, House Republicans stripped King of committee assignments, an action that took place after an interview in which he appeared to lament that the term "white supremacist" is considered offensive.

CNN has reached out to King's office for comment, but did not immediately receive a response.

The remarks quickly generated condemnation from Democrats, including JD Scholten, who announced earlier this month that he will once again try to unseat King by running against him in 2020.

In response to the comments, Scholten, who unsuccessfully ran against King in 2018, said the Iowa Republican is pushing a "selfish agenda," and accused him of excusing violence.

"Our congressman continues to push his selfish agenda above the needs of #IA04 -- this time he excuses violence. This isn't what we stand for," the Democratic challenger wrote, including a link to a fundraising page with the message.

King also faces a GOP primary before he gets to the general election.
One of primary challengers, Iowa state Sen. Randy Feenstra, called the comments "bizarre" in a statement on Wednesday.

"I am 100% pro-life but Congressman King's bizarre comments and behavior diminish our message and damage our cause," he said, adding, "We can't afford to hand the 4th District to Nancy Pelosi and her allies in Congress. President Trump needs defenders in Congress, not distractions."
Democratic presidential candidates were quick to denounce the congressman too, with New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand calling for his resignation.

"You are a disgrace. Resign," Gillibrand tweeted at King on Wednesday.

"My friend @JDScholten is standing up and fighting back against Steve King, and he needs all of our help," Beto O'Rourke tweeted, "because no matter where you live, you know there's no place for Steve King's racism, bigotry, and hatred in Congress.

"Iowans have long deserved better than Steve King and his hateful, insulting words. He should resign," tweeted Democratic Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey.

I'd say ten rounds.

A crazed murderer can do a lot of damage using ten round rifle magazines though.

If five round rifle magazines are not adequate for self defense, people do have the right to have whatever amount is adequate.

But are five rifle rounds (with another five every time the magazine is changed) really inadequate for self defense?

Latest Fox News poll in head-to-head matchups of potential 2020 likely candidates shows Biden beating Trump by 12 points. Warren and Sanders also beat him. It also shows Dems are more motivated to vote than Repubs. We didn't vote forTrump in 2026 but we got stuck with him anyway. Not gonna make that mistake again. https://theweek.com/speedreads/859366/warren-leaps-ahead-sanders-new-fox-news-poll-where-all-democrats-beat-trump

What do you expect? This is what republicans do, they destroy the social fabric of our country...

All the gains that Obama and the democrats achieved in 8 years, against republican obstruction, have been wiped out with one lousy crooked republican loser president...

What are you talking about, the market is still up over 5,000 points from where it was when when Trump took office. Obama's market never hit above 20,000, that was all Trump.

@Baldimo,
I trust you notice all the money people who see troubling harbingers of a recession coming just in time for the 2020 elections. And as has been amply documented, the trump economy has just been a continuation of the Obama economy for a couple mire years.

"All the money people", every single one of them, or the ones who want to talk to the media because they don't like Trump? There is a difference.

You think so huh? The economy is still rising due to Obama's efforts and Trump is doing his best to kill it.

Nothing to do with steel tariffs?

Another Trump failure that the middle class (what's left of it) will have to pay for.

And taxpayers will not be paying for it with their GM paychecks.

Oh, and global warming is a hoax... (cynical)

Obama's economy stalled for the last 2 years of his administration, it was pretty flat. I've already gone over this either here or in other threads on the site.

I don't care what he said about unions. I'm not a fan of unions, they are an outdated group anyways. Why should someone's employment at a company be related to them joining a club? For the last several years, when given the option of leaving a union and no longer paying dues, people have gladly left, it's the reason why the unions have been shrinking for the last 40 years. The only unions that have really grown are the public sector unions, people still don't have a choice but to join those unions and pay fees.

Which ones, the ones against China? Aren't you keeping up with the news, there are no longer any steel tariffs on Mexico or Canada, we singed a trade deal with them.

Quote:

As I noted above, the tariffs worked against Canada and Mexico, they both came to the table and signed a trade deal with the US. Sometimes you have to play hardball to get what you need done. Believe it or not, Trump is looking out for US citizens and US citizens first.

@MontereyJack,
So was claiming that Trump was working with Russia to win the 2016 election, didn't stop the MSM from spreading the lie for 2 years. Exactly how much of the Steele Dossier was proven to be true? Russian Embassy in Miami?

@Baldimo,
The Obama economy did not stall in the last two yers. The trade deal with Canada and mexico was basically nafta reinstated with a few minor tweaks. One reason midlw class income was flat for years was because of GOP unrelenting antagonism for unions while the top several percent's portion of the economy steadily increased. If it's done publicly it's not technically a conspiracy, and trump did it publicly.trump very publicly told Russia he'd appreciate their help, which they then provided and which he used in his campaign. If it's done ublicly it's not technically a conspiracy, and Trump did it publicly. Same result, just different means.

@Baldimo,
Obama's economy stalled the first two years because of the republican recession and because the racist republicans obstructed everything the democrats did to revive the economy. (Because Obama was black...)

Trump in front of his dim-witted followers and the world invited the Russians to hack Hillary's emails during his campaign...

THAT is collusion. The republicans are so crooked that they would never prosecute. Trump has been forgiven by God according to his hypocrite evangelists for the peeing Russian prostitutes and the porn star sex and hundreds of other crimes.

But the republican God does not mind if everything Trump says is a lie...

How do you fix stupid? The republican answer is, lie about it.

Republicans would be really surprised with whom God has really chosen to lead this country and it is not Trump.

God does not choose liars and thieves to lead...

Crooked parties choose crooked leaders and God detests them all.

We the people are running this country, not Trump. Republicans will learn this lesson the hard way. Their corrupt reign and president are soon coming to a swift and abrupt end. Trump will face the charges for his crimes...
