Steve King’s DEPLORABLE ‘Natural Families’ Remarks Are Everything Hillary’s Talking About (VIDEO)
Steve King says he prefers to “respect all people” but he wants to promote “natural families.” He firmly believes presidential candidates should be out there promoting these natural families.
That’s what he told CNN’s Chris Cuomo.
What is a natural family, in King’s view?
Well, it’s a family that every sexually repressed, emotionally stunted Bible-thumping, not Bible-reading conservative Christian whackjob thinks is normal. Even though these people wouldn’t know what normal is if it bit them in the butt.
In other words, a natural family means marriage between a man and a woman.
“The natural family is a man and a woman joined together hopefully in holy matrimony blessed by God with children,” said King, an avid Trump supporter.
So how can you respect all people when you’re busy telling them they can’t get married if they don’t fit your criteria?
The Trump child care Plan
King says he’s on board with any child care plan of Trump’s that encourages more ‘Muricans to start banging out babies. On Tuesday, Trump unveiled parts of the plan that would make child care more affordable.
“The proposal about supporting mothers and fathers and families and encouraging more babies in this country, that is good,” King said. “Anything he might do with this, I would encourage him to promote the expansion of families because if we don’t have more babies than we have funerals, we’re going to end up like Europe. And we’ll be in a situation where we’re importing a counter culture that may be alien to the values of the American way of life.”
The American way of life — like, say, slavery?
Because, you know, we might get more of those foreign types coming in and creating a “counter culture” that is alien to repressing other people, is more likely what he really means.
In an interview with MSNBC host Chris Hayes as part of a panel, King said he thinks white people have contributed more to civilization than any other race. And he blurted that out for all the news media to hear.

Understandably, the other panelists were upset, but Hayes tried to keep the peace. So April Ryan, who is African-American, asked King, “What about Asia? What about Africa?”
“We’re not going to argue the history of Western civilization,” Hayes said. “Let me note for the record that if you’re looking at the ledger of Western civilization, for every flourishing democracy, you have Hitler and Stalin as well.”
You can watch the video below to see what this reprehensible man has to say.
This is a man who includes a Confederate flag on his desk, and he has a long history of racist and inflammatory comments. King was roundly criticized by his colleagues in 2013 after he said immigrants were little more than “drug mules.”
And he thinks he knows something about them drug mules, he does
King is very vocal in his opposition to immigration reform and he told one conservative website that for every young illegal immigrant that prospers, “there’s another 100 out there that — they weigh 130 pounds, and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.”
Apparently, he’s forgotten, or is completely ignorant about a few facts. He’s forgotten that black slaves built America, all though Bill O’Reilly seems to have the wrong idea about slaves as well.
People of color have given us much to appreciate
He’s also forgotten what contributions people of color have given the world. Things like algebra, for instance. That’s what the Middle Eastern scholars Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī and Omar Khayyam gave us.
The alphabet most of us take for granted today is based on the Phoenician alphabet, which also from the Middle East.
And a number of pioneering African-American inventors and scientists have developed everything from new surgical techniques to advances in chemistry, computer programming and engineering, among other things.
I’m sure lots of these folks had what King calls natural families. I’m also sure some families weren’t “natural.”
After all, in the interview with Cuomo, he’s already said LGBT people can’t have such families.
Fortunately, Cuomo didn’t cut him any slack and cited scientific research. The research showed that children of same-sex parents do quite well and often better than kids in heterosexual families.
“We know that what works is loving the kid, giving them the attention, giving them the time,” the CNN host said. “There is no reason to believe that you have to have a man and a woman to do that.
Not only that but:
“Why not encourage anything that gets a child loved and provided for?” he asked King.
The Congressman countered that there is also evidence that says kids really need a male and female parent.
“The evidence is very heavy on the other side of this thing — to have a role model as a man in the home, to have a role model as a woman in home, especially a model of a father and a mother that are joined together and working together in a team,” he said. “That is the best way that we can hope that all children are raised.”
In 2014, King told an interviewer he was disappointed that former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) vetoed a bill that would have permitted business owners to wield their religion as an excuse to discriminate against LGBT people.
“You’re an individual entrepreneur with God-given rights that our founders defined in the Declaration of Independence,” King said. “You should be able to make your own decisions with what you do in that private business.”
So in other words, you should be able to be a racist, homophobic, misogynistic jerk just like King.
Go Forth and kill the planet
In a lot of ways, when King encourages men and women to “go forth and multiply,” he’s taking a page from the Quiverfull movement. The Duggar family should be so happy. This movement treats women as if they are nothing more than vessels to have more and more babies.
Apparently he’s never heard that human overpopulation is killing the planet.
Vyckie Garrison is a former Quiverfull member. She now runs the blog No Longer Quivering for Patheos. Her blog acts as a watchdog against this movement, and this is how she describes the “quiver” metaphor:
“The whole point of having a quiver full of babies is to… out-populate the “enemy” … and to shoot those many arrows “straight into the heart of the enemy.” And by that, we meant that our children would grow up to be leaders in all the major institutions of our society.”
And you know what? This is right up King’s alley. A whole bunch of little white ‘Murican babies to beat back those brown foreigners. A whole bunch of Stepford wives and husbands.

No wonder Hillary Clinton says Trump supporters like King are deplorable. And she’s 100 percent right.
“To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables,’” she said. “Unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.’”

Republicans like King are obsessed with homosexuality and have done much to hurt LGBT people. This is monstrously hypocritical since they have been embroiled in sex scandals and pedophilia for decades.
Anyone remember former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert? The former teacher and wrestling coach was busted after a man who’d been a student of Hastert’s threatened to go public with allegations that Hastert had molested him decades earlier.
So the idea that hypocrites like King are promoting natural families is simply deplorable.
