GOP Congressman Claims Same-Sex Marriage Is Socialist
Stay up to date with the latest headlines via email.
Rep. Steve King's (R-IA) latest lunacy, this time claiming that same-sex marriage is socialism:
They want public affirmation. They want access to public funds and resources. Eventually all those resources will be pooled because that’s the direction we’re going. And not only is it a radical social idea, it is a purely socialist concept in the final analysis.
Let's tease this out for a moment.
First, if Steve King thinks same-sex marriage is giving homosexuals the same rights as heterosexuals and he thinks that same-sex marriage is socialism, that must mean he thinks opposite-sex marriage is also socialism, right?
In other words, marriage is a socialist institution, and married men and women are the communist menace.
But wait, it doesn't stop there. Because same-sex marriage is illegal in most parts of the country, the obvious implication of Steve King's comment is that gays are the only capitalists America has left.
Put another way: the very future of the fabric of America depends on freedom-loving homosexuals defeating the socialist threat posed by marriage, gay, straight, or otherwise.
