This morning, at Day II of CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference, Rep. Steve King (R-IA) ironically quoted Sun Tzu‘s 2500 year old “The Art of War,” a manifesto considered to be the greatest example of Taoist thinking.
King then went on to define who he considers to be the enemies of America:
Liberals, Progressives, Che Gueverians, Castroites, Socialists, Trotskyites, Maoists, Stalinists, Leninists, Marxists. He then asks, “Who’d I leave out?” An audience members says, “federal government.” King merely responds, “I think I heard that.”
He then starts to claim Obama is a “Democratic Socialist.”
Good to know where King stands. Good the people of Iowa, who are a good people, now know their Representative doesn’t represent half of them.
As a matter of fact, King had threatened to run for Governor in an attempt to overturn that state’s Supreme Court ruling that ended a ban on same-sex marriage. King later chose not to run, knowing his popularity would not have allowed him to be elected, and recognizing that the people of Iowa see same-sex marriage as a non-issue.
The question, as I asked back in September, is, “Is Rep. King Doing His Job?” It lists many of the ridiculous things King has said, especially on gay marriage.
