Craziest Republican of the Day: Steve King
Actually, the Iowa Rep. isn't just a crazy Republican and extremist conservative ideologue, he's a terrorist sympathizer. TPM reports:
Rep. Steve King (R-IA) told a crowd at CPAC on Saturday that he could "empathize" with the suicide bomber who last week attacked an IRS office in Austin, and encouraged his listeners to "implode" other IRS offices, according to a witness.
As well, in an interview with Think Progress, King sympathized with the suicide bomber, Joseph Andrew Stack (clip below):
I think if we'd abolished the IRS back when I first advocated it, he wouldn't have a target for his airplane. And I'm still for abolishing the IRS, I've been for it for thirty years and I'm for a national sales tax... It's sad the incident in Texas happened, but by the same token, it's an agency that is unnecessary and when the day comes when that is over and we abolish the IRS, it's going to be a happy day for America.
It may be "sad," but, to King, it's fully understandable.
Here's yet another glimpse into the Republican mind -- and remember that it's the Republicans who always talk up law and order, national security and the war on terror, as if Democrats cannot be trusted to protect the American people.
That's all hypocritical partisan bullshit, of course, as we are reminded -- that we should ever need reminding -- when the ugliness bubbles to the surface, as it so often does in the Insanitarium.
