Dumbfuckery du Jour

With Congressmen like this, who needs enemies?
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.
Can we say "extremely fucking inappropriate," boys and girls?

Now, most Congresscritters caught saying something so far beyond the pale as this wouldn't walk, but run, that one back.  Not Rep. King.  Oh, no.  Not he who is vying for the title of Craziest Fucking Rep in the History of the United States.  You'd think he'd backpedal, say he'd been misunderstood or misspoke or mis-something-or-other, but no.  Steve King proudly expands upon his abhorrent rhetoric:

During the question and answer session, the Media Matters staffer asked King to clarify his comment, reminding him of his sworn duty to protect the American people from all sworn enemies, foreign and domestic. In response, said the staffer, King gave a long and convoluted answer about having been personally audited by the IRS, and ended  by saying he intended to hold a fundraiser to help people "implode" their local IRS office.

We've told you about other inappropriate responses to the bombing, which was carried out by Austin software developer Joe Stack, and in which one other person has so far died. But King's may take the cake.

I think, my darlings, he took the whole fucking bakery.

Seriously fucked-up people the Cons are.  Shit themselves in fear when the terrorists are brown people with funny accents, puff themselves up and stand in proud solidarity when the terrorists are white people with American accents, as long as they're only flying planes into buildings housing federal workers or shooting at people who do things like perform legal medical procedures.  There's something so seriously fucking wrong with that I'm not even sure where to begin with it.  So let me just try to state something in clear and simple terms:

Flying a plane into a building intentionally in order to kill people is never the right thing to do, no matter how pissed off you are that you got yourself into deep shit over your shoddy tax returns.  Period.  End of fucking debate.  The criminal fucktards who do things like fly planes into buildings are not fucking heroes and should never be held up as examples.  And lawmakers shouldn't be encouraging people to "implode" the IRS right after saying how much they empathize with criminal fucktards who fly planes into buildings with the intent to kill. 

What in the above paragraph is so difficult for Cons to comprehend?
