U.S. Congressman Defends Dog Fighting
Animals  (tags: animalcruelty, animaladvocates, animalwelfare, dogs )
Michael- 5 hours ago - thinkprogress.org

If you believe that the United States should legalize dogfighting because we allow humans to fight, fear not. You've got an ally in the United States Congress. King is a longtime advocate for legalizing dogfighting and cockfighting.

That is the best word for this asshole. Do you really think that those dogs raise their paws and say "OH PICK ME" . Are you really that stupid. Those men choose to fight and make money off those fights. These precious gift from god do not choose that kind of life. And the assholes that do should be put through what those poor animals are put though. And trust me I would be the first in line to do so. I have no compassion for people like you what's so ever. I can't not believe that anyone what think that this kind of act of cruelty is acceptable. It show what kind of person you really are....AN ASSHOLE.

Iowa Rep. Steve King (R) is standing up for the rights of Americans who want to see dogs and others animals pitted against one another in fights that often result in the animals’ deaths.

‎"DUMB ASS OF THE MONTH" Rep. Steve King. What is this guy some kind of redneck? Also, people make a choice to fight and do not fight to the death. Animals have no choice, are abused, electrocuted and tortured in various way to make them mean and they fight to the death or be shot. This guy takes the cake and receives my vote for Dumbass of the Month.

Below is a disturbing, detailed record of Congressman King's votes against animal protection. You'll see that he's also opposed legislation to crack down on horse slaughter; to stop bear baiting on federal lands; to spend millions of taxpayer dollars on federal predator control programs; and to oppose efforts to protect cranes, bison and other popular wildlife species. Here is his voting record.
108th Congress(2003-04)


Voted against an amendment to bar the National Park Service and Forest Service from using federal funds to kill Yellowstone bison. (H.R. 4568)

Voted against an amendment to prohibit the use of funds for bear baiting on federal lands. (H.R. 2691)

Voted against an amendment to strike down provisions in an energy bill that would allow oil and gas drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. (H.R. 6)

109th Congress(2005-06)

Voted against a bill to bar the transport, possession, purchase, or sale of horses to be slaughtered for human consumption. (H.R. 503)

Voted for an amendment to delay implementation of the Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. (Amendment to H.R. 503)

Voted against an amendment to prohibit the Bureau of Land Management from using tax dollars for the sale and slaughter of wild horses and burros. (H.R. 2361)

Voted against a bill to require state and local authorities to consider the needs of people with pets and service animals in their disaster planning. (P.L. 109-308)

110th Congress (2007-08)

Voted against the Animal Fighting Enforcement Prohibition Act, which was signed into law in 2007 and strengthened the penalties for illegal dogfighting and cockfighting, making it a felony to transport animals across state lines for these gruesome and barbaric fights. (H.R. 137)

Voted against a bill to restore the prohibition on the commercial sale and slaughter of wild horses and burros. (H.R. 249)

Voted against an amendment to bar federal funding that permits the import of sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada. (H.R. 2643)

Voted against a bill to assist conservation programs that protect rare dog and cat species outside North America and Europe. (H.R. 1464)

Voted against a bill to provide assistance to conservation programs aimed at helping imperiled crane populations in the U.S. and around the world. (H.R. 1771)

Voted against a bill to prohibit interstate and foreign commerce in primates for the pet trade. (H.R. 2964)

111th Congress (2009-10)

Voted to uphold an amendment to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from proceeding with plans to collect greenhouse gas emissions data from factory farms. (P.L. 111-88)

Voted against a bill to authorize additional grants for marine turtle conservation projects in foreign countries, expand eligibility to include projects in the U.S., and increase authorized funding levels. (H.R. 509)

Voted against a bill to establish a more effective recovery program for the severely declining population of Southern sea otters. (H.R. 556)

Voted against a bill to once again prohibit the commercial sale and slaughter of free-roaming horses and burros, and make holding facilities more humane, effective, and fiscally responsible. (H.R. 1018)

Voted for an amendment to remove the federal ban on carrying loaded firearms in national parks. (P.L. 111-24)

Voted against a bill to fund conservation programs that protect rare dog and cat species outside of North America and Europe. (H.R. 411)

Voted against a bill to fund conservation programs for imperiled crane populations in the U.S. and around the world. (H.R. 388) Voted against a bill to prohibit interstate and foreign commerce in primates for the pet trade. (H.R. 80)

Midterm 112th Congress (2011-12)

Voted against amendments to cap agriculture subsidies that would limit huge taxpayer giveaways to commodity growers. (H.R. 1/H.R. 2112)

Voted against an amendment to save millions of taxpayer dollars by ending subsidies for lethal predator control for ranchers. (H.AMDT.471/H.R. 2112)

Voted against an amendment to remove a devastating rider that would prevent the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from protecting any new species or designating critical habitat for currently listed species. (H.R. 2584)

Voted against McGovern amendment to the Farm bill to make it a crime to attend a dogfight or cockfight or to bring a child to an animal fighting venture. That amendment was approved by the House Agriculture Committee.

The endorsement of cruelty of any kind is wrong...and I might add this...sinful.

Again, these are the freaks we seem to connect to lately.  The more vile the better.  Those that voted for this garbage are just as guilty of abuse.
