Steve King (R-IA) is never short of crazy ideas. His latest is that the riots in Baltimore should be blamed on Obama because “he drives a wedge between us.” By driving a wedge between us, I think what Steve King is saying is that Obama doesn’t agree with him that racism isn’t a problem in the US and that police officers should be above the law (for the record, I believe that police officers are people and there are good and bad police officers).
So does that mean that when people in the LA area rioted over the beating of Rodney King and the acquittal of the police officers that beat him that we should blame George HW Bush.
Were the riots in Lexington, started by students and fans upset that the Wildcats lost to Wisconsin also to be blamed on Obama?
Who should be blamed for the riots? I don’t know. Maybe the trouble makers that started them.
I’ll simply blame Steve King for being an idiot!
