    “For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds — and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert”
    —Rep Steve King (R-Iowa)

    Isn’t being stupid a preliminary screening requirement now for GOPers to get on any ticket?

    Is the statement factual?

    How many children of illegal aliens are valedictorians of their high school graduating class? Would I be wrong to say that the number is probably less than 100?

    Of the 10, 11, 12 or twenty million illegals currently in the country, how many have children that are involved in drug trafficing? Would it be beyond belief to think that 10,000 are involved in drug trafficing? Out of 20,000,000? That would not be unreasonable.

    So by a factor of at least 100 to 1, there are more drug runners to valedictorians. So the statement of Representative King is factually correct.

    That might anger you, but you cannot argue with facts, they are stubborn things.

    @Molon Labe

    Unless there are actual statistics backing it up, then no the statement isn’t factual.

    Dude, do you read at all?

    Oh I’m not saying the following is gospel BUT remember the adage of smoke and fire…

    On the other part of the equation, I could only find this:

    Just something to ponder Jase.

    " Would I be wrong to say that the number is probably less than 100?"
    .
    Less than 100 over what time frame? This year? So we’re going to compare this year to five decades worth of illegals? That sound fair to you?
    .
    Secondly, we don’t often ask and children of illegals don’t often get up during their Valedictoratory and say “Oh, By the way, my parents are here illegally too, so suck it!” As such we don’t have a way of getting at the exact number.
    .
    What I suspect you mean is “How often do Mexicans excel at school anyway?” Out of how many schools are you figuring there are only 100 “illegals” as valedictorian?
    .
    “Of the 10, 11, 12 or twenty million illegals currently in the country,”
    .
    Whoa there, Molon the counting horse! That there is a wide range! About 10,000,000 people wide! Tossing numbers against the wall hoping one will stick is ridiculous. It’s the method of and for the innumerate.
    .
    “Involved in Drug Running”. You mean while they are growing up? While they are in High School? Or when they come of age and are adults?
    .
    All Italians are in the mafia too right… At least a significant percentage, such that for every Ginzo that is Val, there are a hundred others that are wiseguys, right? Oh wait! the numbers match up just like you said!
    .
    And the Irish! For every one (as if even one could be valedictorian!) there are a hundred that are corrupt cops, right?
    .
    " how many have children that are involved in drug trafficing?"
    .
    So now we’re comparing the parents to the valedictorians?
    .
    I hope you can now see just how far from “factual” you are.

    I LOVE it when the GOP self-immolates.

    Steve King is an outright bigot. Here’s why:


    He tells a Univision (spanish tv) host that comparing immigrants to dogs is complimentary.


    He’s also the guy that said that illegal immigrants have just invaded his DC office.


    Dude compared immigrants to cattle, saying that we should electrify the border fence.


    He called undocumented immigration a “slow-moving terrorist attack.”


    Praised Joe McCarthy as a great American hero.


    After the terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed, King derisively said he was now at a place where there are 72 virgins who “probably all look like Helen Thomas.”


    But hey, if he said it then it must be true!

    This morning’s hilarity, PETER King being interviewed to declare STEVE King a nut. OH, what a tangled web they weave.
