When the FBI first came up with their psychological profiles for Serial Killers and other sociopaths, the very first thing on the list was "tortured animals as a child".


Just sayin'

God, that Steven King is such a dick.

Some of you might remember this discussion from the last time it made it to the national stage, shortly after the Michael Vick investigation.

The late Sen Robert Byrd: The training of these poor creatures...

I wonder what would be said of Rep King if Sen Byrd was still alive.

Yeah, as a child. These people want to do it as an adult, which makes it OK. They're consenting to watch.

Republican national hero.

What the everloving f*ck is wrong with you republicans!?!

Seriously!
 
2012-07-31 06:52:46 PM  

James!: MBK: James!: Republicans really don't understand the concept of consent.

You own a dog (like a woman). You don't need consent.

I can destroy my property without breaking the law. Why can't I use my property to fight another person's property?

Can robot wars be legal?

Unfortunately, King is a longtime advocate for legalizing dogfighting, cockfighting, and other forms of animal torture. Most recently, he fought legislation that would make it illegal to bring a child to an animal fight. He has also set aside his love for states' rights in order to forbid localities from enacting anti-animal torture standards.

I hate you, Steve King.
 
2012-07-31 06:55:09 PM  
Geezus, is every pol named King a farking douchebag?

ya got Steve King, Iowa's proudist.
ya got Peter King, New York's proudist.
here in Colorado we have another Steve King, drug warrior douchebag.

Sounds like GOP Rep Steve King's brain cells both fought each other to death.
 
2012-07-31 06:56:27 PM  
He probably secretly enjoys Cock Fighting, too, I'll bet.

/If you know what I mean.
 
2012-07-31 06:56:27 PM  
Hey asshole, those aren't the boxers we want to see fighting.

without dogfighting a lot of our boys in green wouldn't have made it back from WWII.

there's something wrong with the priorities of people that think like that.

Rights and protections are not a zero-sum game you idiot. You want to outlaw boxing or wrestling or some bloodsport which is as brutal in training, control, and combat as dogfighting? Feel free to try. We do not first have to assure the safety and well being of all humans before trying to assure the safety and well being of animals.
 
2012-07-31 07:00:44 PM  
I'm beginning to suspect the GOP is full of evil little men.
 
2012-07-31 07:01:06 PM  
Take it slow Congressman. Get man-vs-animal bullfighting legalized first and then go for the glory.
 
2012-07-31 07:01:09 PM  
Romney's dog must be feeling pretty smug right now.

From a friend of mine:

Perhaps, if we dropped the good congressman into a cage with Manny Pacquiao and didn't let him out until Manny was done with him, he might start to understand our objections.
 
2012-07-31 07:04:52 PM  
I'm just resisting the urge to go hide an angry, starved doberman in King's car and rig his locks to jam after he gets in.

/seriously, why does this jackhat remain in Congress?
 
2012-07-31 07:04:55 PM  

James!: Republicans really don't understand the concept of consent.

Seems that way. It's like how they conflate Homosex with pedophilia and bestiality.
 
2012-07-31 07:05:28 PM  
You know who else liked to watch men and animals fight to the death?

/people did
 
2012-07-31 07:06:47 PM  
Apropos of absolutely nothing, the discussion oif the legality of burning down your own house reminds me of the case of Henry David Thoreau. We all know how Thoreau moved two miles from home and built a cabin in the woods where his mom could conveniently drop off his dinner, because, as he put it, "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." However, that explanation omits the fact that he and a friend had been horsing around and accidently set a fire that burned down 300 acres of town land in Walden Woods. Essentially Thoroeau was persona non grata in Concord for a while, and he thought it best to set up housekeeping elsewhere.

The more you know...

I'd like to see him go through that scene in the last vignette of "Tales From The Crypt" where the warden of an old folk's home had to run the gauntlet of razor blades only to meet up with his ever hungry pet dog who has been fed pepper and such so that he can't smell the odor of his master.
 
2012-07-31 07:07:22 PM  

themindiswatching: MBK: I can destroy my property without breaking the law.

No. For example, you'll get arrested for arson if you burn your own house down, even if you don't have homeowner's insurance.


I see your problem. You're burning down the wrong possession. You need a business, like a restaurant and you burn that down when it stops making money.

Steve King is a complete scumbag.

"If man is not to stifle human feelings, he must practice kindness to animals, for He who is cruel to animals becomes hard also in his dealings with men. We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals." -Immanuel Kant

"Anyone who has accustomed himself to regard the life of any living creature as worthless is in danger of arriving also at the idea of worthless human life". ~ Albert Schweitzer

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated" ~Gandhi

"If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."-Francis of Assisi

"Animals have done us no harm and they have no power of resistance....There is something so very dreadful...in tormenting those who have never harmed us, who cannot defend themselves, who are utterly in our power."-Cardinal John Henry Newman

"As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower livings beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."-Pythagoras

"Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men."-Leonardo da Vinci

"Moral progress has consisted in the main of protest against cruel customs, and of attempts to enlarge human sympathy."-Bertrand Russel

"The assumption that animals are without rights and the illusion that our treatment of them has no moral significance is a positively outrageous example of Western crudity and barbarity. Universal compassion is the only guarantee of morality."-Arthur Shopenhauer

This is what "freedom" means to today's GOP.
 
2012-07-31 07:13:55 PM  
He's no more to blame than the voters of Iowa. And they're not as bad as the losers in Iowa who don't vote.
 
2012-07-31 07:13:56 PM  
This doesn't reflect very well on the people he represents.
 
2012-07-31 07:14:53 PM  
Something is deeply wrong with this man. Maybe a tribe of dogs burnt down his family's village or some shiat.

On EVERY farking count, pure evil.

Dear Western Iowa,

WTF?
Seriously, WTF?


i wish I knew. no one seems willing to run against the peanut brain 'cause he's in tight with those weird dutch reformed rich farmers up the northwest and that's the land of god and guns

thankfully, due to redistricting, i will no longer have to cry every time he opens his mouth.

incidentally, he no longer responds to my emails critiquing his performance and giving common sense suggestions to quit looking like a sheepfarker.

Can we make it legal for this asshat to fight dogs? He weighs, what, 185 pounds? So put him in a ring with 185 pounds of fighting dogs and let them fight to the death. That's OK, right?
 
2012-07-31 07:18:39 PM  
If we legalize animal torture, we could set up an early detection system for serial killers.

I get the feeling he represents them perfectly.

Can we give the dog a skull-mounted laser?
 
2012-07-31 07:23:48 PM  
So the republicans have pretty much just gone ahead and made their platform "everything decent people hate", huh?

I don't really like the fact that I have a moral obligation to vote a straight democratic ticket, but since any vote for a republican is always potentially a vote for enabling pure, unmitigated evil I don't see that I have much of a choice.

/ if you vote republican, you are an evil person, end of story
 
2012-07-31 07:24:28 PM  
Lots of dogs?
 
2012-07-31 07:25:51 PM  
I fail to see how views like this could help him. I mean, hating on gays? Sure, people hate gays. Hating on African Americans? Sure, large swaths of the country are racist. But is there really enough people who enjoy seeing dogs fight other dogs to warranty pandering to that demographic? It seems so... forced and awkward.
 
2012-07-31 07:30:37 PM

Those bastards have their fingers in so many pies. And you can't fight them. Last I heard, a miniature poodle had gone undercover to get to Rep. shiat Golem, and what he experienced made him turn in his badge.

Dumb hillbillies love to kill and torture animals. It fits right into the inbred, uneducated, buck-toothed demographic of brainless hicks he's courting.
