Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Gets even Dumber

I didn't think Steve King could say anything stupider than his defense of Joe Wilson (here)

But that just shows you how little I know about Steve King.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA): Same-sex marriage is "a purely socialist concept."

Yeah, Steve King thinks that gay couples are not entitled to equal protection under the law. Steve King thinks that because he finds gay people icky, the Constitution does not apply to them.

He doesn't understand why some people believe that same-sex marriage has no effect on hetero marriage. Of course, he can't explain what effect it supposedly has, he just takes it as an article of faith that somehow same-sex couples getting married is going to have some sort of negative effect on opposite-sex marriages.

So, that's pretty fucking stupid. But wait! It gets stupider. He actually says a sentence that I don't believe has ever been spoken in history. He says "Rick Santorum was right."

But that's not even the pinnacle of Steve King's stupidity. He ends the audio clip with a bizarre, convoluted idea of same-sex marriage being a necessary part of socialism. Oh, well no wonder the gay people were treated so well in the Soviet Union. (they weren't)
What does Bob marrying Jim have to do with socialism? Well, in Steve King's crazy, stupid little brain, same-sex marriage leads inevitably to group marriage, which leads inescapably to communal living, which I guess somehow leads to Communism? I think?

Hey, Iowa. You seriously need to get rid of this pea-brained little nut sack. Seriously, you're making Oklahoma look good. And that ain't easy.
