Iowa Rep. Steve King Wins The Morning With Anti-Immigration Rally For Crowd Of Tens

Valedictorians or drug runners?Iowa congressman Steve King was the star speaker at a “Stop Amnesty” rally in Richmond, Virginia, Monday, and supporters stayed away in droves — the crowd was estimated at between 30 and 60 people, almost none of whom appeared to be valedictorians or drug mules with calves the size of cantaloupes. Despite the disappointing turnout, King offered more of his trademark crazy, warning that Latins will sap and impurify America’s precious bodily fluids:

If you bring people from a violent civilization into a less-violent civilization, you’re going to have more violence right? It’s like pouring hot water into cold water, does it raise the temperature or not?

It’s a compelling case for not letting Americans move to British Columbia, we suppose.

The rally had been billed as a message to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who had criticized King for his idiotic comments suggesting that young immigrants are mostly drug smugglers. Organizers of the nonevent had announced that the rally location “neighbors the district of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who will play a major role in the fate of any amnesty bill in the House.” It is not known whether the 50 or so people who showed up sent Cantor the message they had intended.

Breitbart horcrux Matthew Boyle was not pleased by the low turnout:

How can we prove our superior strength if there's so few of us?

You will be glad to know that according to Politico, this is excellent news for John McCain Steve King:

The conservative firebrand from Iowa — who recently called immigrant children drug mules — is seizing a critical moment in the immigration debate and taking his views on the road[.]

Steve King then declared victory, and went home.
