Iowa Congressman Steve King is not afraid to fight the Humane Society's "We Don't Enjoy Animals Being Tortured for Our Amusement" branch. (4:21)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK EVERYBODY, THANK YOU SO MUCH.

NATION, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU BUT I HAVE HAD IT UP TO HERE WITH ANIMAL RIGHTS GROUPS.

I MEAN, HOW ENDANGERED COULD THE BLACK RHINO BE?

EVERY TIME I GO ON SAFARI I BAG ONE.

(LAUGHTER) AND SPARE ME YOUR PHONE CALLS.

I USE EVERYDAY PART OF JUST THE HORN.

(LAUGHTER) NOW LUCKILY THERE'S A HERO OUT THERE WHO'S NOT AFRAID TO STAND

UP TO THE PUPPY HUGGERS.

IOWA CONGRESSMAN AND HAUNTED ICE SCULPTURE STEVE KING RECENTLY KING SPOKE OUT AGAINST NEW

FEDERAL ANTI-DOG FIGHTING LAWS.

>> THE LEGISLATION THAT PASSED IN THE FARM BILL THAT SAID THAT

IT'S A FEDERAL CRIME TO WATCH ANIMALS FIGHT OR TO INDUCE SOMEONE ELSE TO WATCH AN ANIMAL

FIGHT BUT IT'S NOT A FEDERAL CRIME TO INDUCE SOMEBODY TO WATCH PEOPLE FIGHTING.

THERE'S SOMETHING WRONG WITH THE PRIORITIES OF PEOPLE THAT THINK LIKE THAT.

IT'S WRONG TO RATE ANIMALS ABOVE HUMAN BEINGS.

I WILL NOT RAISE ANIMALS UP ABOVE HUMAN BEINGS.

>> THANK YOU.

IF TWO CONSENTING ADULTS WANT TO FIGHT UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE W.B.A., WHY NOT TWO CONSENTING DOGS?

I MEAN, IT'S A CLASSIC CINDERELLATOR STORY.

A TROUBLED YOUNG DOG FROM A TOUGH NEIGHBORHOOD LOOKING FOR A WAY OFF THE STREET HEADS DOWN TO

THE GYM AND THEN CHOOSES TO ENTER THE EXCITING WORLD OF DOG FIGHTING.

A MENTOR TAKES HIM IN, TEACHES THIS DOG EVERYTHING HE KNOWS.

AND WHEN THAT DOG FEELS READY,

HE ENTERS THE RING TO PROVE TO THE WORLD AND TO HIMSELF THAT HE'S GOT THE TALENTED TENACITY

TO BE A WINNER-- OR A LOSER, IN WHICH CASE HE IS KILLED.

THAT'S HOW CINDERELLA ENDS,

RIGHT?

NOW, SADLY, KING'S WORDS WERE TWISTED LIKE THE BALL SACK OF A

ROT ROT WILER IN A PIT BULL'S JAWS.

(LAUGHTER) HE WAS SAVAGED BY THE "WE DON'T ENJOY ANIMALS BEING TORTURED FOR

OUR AMUSEMENT BRIGADE" AT THE HUMANE SOCIETY SO CONGRESSMAN KING PUT HIS DEFENSE OF DOG

FIGHTS IN A TRUE MORAL CONTEXT.

>> WHAT I SAID IS THAT WE NEED TO RESPECT HUMANS MORE THAN WE DO ANIMALS.

WHEREVER WE START ELEVATING ANIMALS TO ABOVE THAT OF HUMANS WE'VE CROSSED A MORAL LINE.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF THERE'S A SEXUAL PREDATOR OUT THERE WHO HAS IMPREGNATED A YOUNG GIRL, SAY A

13-YEAR-OLD GIRL, THAT SEXUAL PREDATOR CAN PICK THAT GIRL UP OFF THE PLAYGROUND AT THE MIDDLE

SCHOOL AND HAUL HER ACROSS THE STATE LINE AND FORCE HER TO GET AN ABORTION TO ERADICATE THE

EVIDENCE OF HIS CRIME AND BRING HER BACK AND DROP HER OFF AT THE

SWING SET AND THAT'S NOT AGAINST THE LAW IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WHAT?

THAT'S NOT AGAINST THE LAW?

(LAUGHTER) WHY NOT?

MAYBE CONGRESSMAN KICK SHOULD DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT!

(LAUGHTER) WHAT WHAT?

WHAT?

I'M BEING TOLD THAT ALL OF THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW.

WELL, BRAVO, CONGRESSMAN, FAST WORK.

THE POINT IS... THE POINT IS HUMANS DO CRUEL THINGS TO EACH OTHER THEREFORE THEY MUST BE

ALLOWED TO BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS.

UNTIL THERE IS NO HUMAN SUFFERING IT'S ALI ALI OXEN FREE ON WHAT YOU'RE FREE TO DO TO

YOUR OXEN.

AND, FOLKS, IT'S NOT JUST CRUEL THINGS, WE'RE ALLOWED TO WATCH PEOPLE HAVE SEX FOR MONEY.

WHY CAN'T STEVE KING WATCHDOGS HAVE SEX FOR MONEY?

FAR MATTER, WHY CAN'T I WATCH STEVE KING HAVE SEX WITH A DOG?

STOP PUTTING DOGS ABOVE STEVE KING!

I'M SURE HE'D BE THE TOP!

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE) I GUESS... I GUESS ALL...

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) I GUESS ALL STEVE KING IS SAYING IS THAT WE SHOULDN'T JUDGE HIM

FOR HAVING IMPREGNATED THAT DOG AND THEN TAKING IT ACROSS THE BORDER FOR FORCED ABORTION TO

PROTECT THE WORLD FROM HIS MONSTROUS GLASSY EYED MAN PUPPIES.

(LAUGHTER) RIGHT?

RIGHT.

THAT'S GOT TO BE WHAT HE'S SAYING.

BECAUSE OTHERWISE I CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHAT THE (BLEEP) HE'S
