Us Congressman Steve King Believes Dog Fighting Should be Legal! Voice Your Outrage!

Congressman Steve King [R, Iowa] Believes Dog Fighting Should Not Be Illegal In In The United States.

His explanation for this baffling statement? Since humans are allowed to fight, why not allow dogs as well? ‘It’s wrong to rate animals above human being’ King opinatined during an interview at a town hall.
‘There is something wrong with society to make it a crime to watch dog fighting, but there is no law that bans somebody to watch people fight’. (An audio recording of his statement can be listened below in the video)
If we take King’s statements into account, then society should be allowing animals to enroll in university and get pets to pay their taxes.

The fundamental difference between humans and animals is that humans have a choice. If a person wants to be a professional boxer, for instance, he is entering a bout fully aware of what he is doing. It is his choice.

Dogs are certainly not asked if they are willing to bite each other until they die just so humans can be entertained. Those dogs are defenseless, they are MADE to do this against their will!

Unfortunately, Mr. King has a lot to catch up. I have also learned that this is not the first time Congressman King has sparked outrage in the animal rights community.
King tweeted that he chased and shot a raccoon because the helpless animal had tried to get into his house during a powerful storm.

King strongly opposed the McGovern amendment (in connection to the 1012 farm bill) that would have established penalties for knowingly attending an animal fiht and for bringing underage children to such events.

King was also one of the members that voted against an upgrade of penalties for transporting fighting animals across state lines in 2007.

I strongly believe in free speech, but Congressman King’s assertions are simply outrageous and unacceptable.

  1. WHAT ARE THEM PUTTING IN THE WATER OF OUR GOVERNMENT LEADERS? CAUSE THIS GUY IS BATSHIT CRAZY AND IT DOESN’T SEEM TO BE STOPPING……HOW COULD ANYONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND THINK, OR MUCH LESS SAY DOG FIGHTING SHOULD BE LEGAL…..NOT SOMEONE I WANT TO BE LEADING ANYTHING!!!!!

  2. Congressman King, I beg of you to view dog fighting for what it is!! CRUEL!!! These poor animals are literally bred to suffer & die at the hand of evil, unstable “human” monsters!! There is absolutely NO reason for such cruelty, NONE!! A bunch of idiots comparing their machismo!! There are a number of other ways for them to do that, other than causing excruciating pain to beautiful, loving, INNOCENT animals, usually Pitt Bulls!! Please, Congressman, do your research, watch real dog fighting videos, IF you can stomach it!! If you still believe it’s ok, then, I believe you to be a heartless, evil monster!!!

  3. That is absolutely crazy. NO ANIMAL should be subjected to that kind of cruelty.. All they want is a fur-ever home, feed and loved. They have so much to offer. Guess you don’t like dogs, cause if you did, you would not want this. Just cause men choose to fight, that is their right. But a dog who can not speak for himself? What are these people offering you? God help all our dogs & from you too. 😥
