Legal Immigrants compared to dogs?

Iowa GOP member Steve King stated in a rally to build a fence along the US/Mexican border in Arizona that legal immigrants coming to the U.S are the pick of the litter.

He referenced when picking a good bird dog, one wants the aggressive energetic one, as opposed to the one napping in a corner.

He compared immigrants that come here to the good pick for a bird dog. “It’s not easy to get here, so if you make it, you are the pick of the litter.”

Now I understand what he is saying, yet I can also understand how immigrant human rights groups will take issue with the analogy he used.

His DNC opponent in the upcoming election Christie Vilsack is definitely taking advantage of this controversial statement and said “if we are going to have a serious talk about immigration, let’s first refer to them as human beings and not dogs.”

Politics is serious business. You have to always take great care with every statement you make, there is always someone watching and it can come back and bite you in the butt!

I don’t consider myself a supporter of either party. I’m just getting involved and educated in all this politics stuff. Honestly I have never cared much for it.

What I have discovered is that both parties have issues, and troublesome people. As I learn more and more, along with my growing interest, I’ll figure out where I stand.

For now, rather than the person or party overall, I take issue and address individual points of interest.

Then you should see that even though the Dems are not all that, the Reps are really fucked up. I mean, they are REALLY fucked up. I don’t like either party and think they are both full of shit. But the Republican party is a war mongering, don’t give 2 shits about the little guy, will bend you over and screw you with no grease type of party. And don’t get it twisted, it’s not a race thing because the only color they see… is green. That’s why poor Republicans crack me up. Cause they ignorant to underlying game of… Read more »


Bad choice of words, yes. But anyone with ½ a brain knows the point Congressman King was trying to make with his “pick of the litter” comments.

The comment by Mr, Willis “That’s your republican party for ya” is laughable.

That comment is just as ridiculous as someone saying that Barack’s Obama’s remarks on the Jay Leno show, “[my bowling a 129 was] like the Special Olympics of something” is proof that the Democrats don’t care about the handicapt. Just like King’s comment, Barack’s were a poor choice of words. Nothing more.
