The double stupidity of Steve King

Republican Rep. Steve King made the following statement yesterday:

King appeared on Newsmax TV on Wednesday where host J.D. Hayworth asked him about the escalating conflict in Ferguson. When asked about the concerns raised by members of the Congressional Black Caucus about the possibility of racial profiling, King said those were unsubstantiated.

“This idea of no racial profiling,” King said, “I’ve seen the video. It looks to me like you don’t need to bother with that particular factor because they all appear to be of a single, you know, of a single origin, I should say, a continental origin might be the way to phrase that.”

At first, I thought, did he mean North America?  Because I’m pretty sure that’s where most Americans are from.

Then I realized how stupid that was.  According to the theory of human origins, we’re all from Africa.

Steve King: Ignorant bigot or silly evolution denier?

We present, you decide.
