Steve King Introduces the Constitutional Rights Aren’t For Everyone Act

Iowa congressman and secret border control agent Steve King has introduced a bill to strip federal courts and the Supreme Court of their authority to review marriage cases.

King introduced the “Restrain the Judges on Marriage Act" on Wednesday with a statement that indicates that marriage is only the first issue King and his colleagues have their sights set on.

“For too long, federal courts have overstepped their constitutionally limited duty to interpret the Constitution.” Said King. “Rather, federal courts have perverted the Constitution to make law and create constitutional rights to things such as privacy, birth control, and abortion. These unenumerated, so-called constitutionally-protected rights were not envisioned by our Founding Fathers.

Only Steve King should be allowed to interpret and "pervert" the Constitution.

My bill strips Article III courts of jurisdiction, and the Supreme Court of appellate jurisdiction, ‘to hear or decide any question pertaining to the interpretation of, or the validity under the Constitution of, any type of marriage.’ Second, my bill provides that ‘[n]o federal funds may be used for any litigation in, or enforcement of any order or judgment by, any court created by an Act of Congress.’

The way King derides "so-called" constitutional rights is the clearest indication yet that King would sooner wipe his ass with the Constitution than agree that it applies to every American. From his perspective, the Equal Protection Clause only applies equally to certain groups of people; mainly the straight, white descendants of European immigrants.

It would be very easy to write Steve King off as a lunatic, which he is, but it was not very long ago that nearly every Republican presidential candidate gathered in Iowa to kiss his ring at the Iowa Freedom Summit.

Every Republican presidential candidate who took the stage at Steve King's wingnut jamboree should be forced to answer whether or not they agree with King's deranged, white supremacist interpretation of the Constitution. Let's start with Scott Walker.
