Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) recent comments concerning his opposition to new animal rights legislation has landed him squarely in the cross-hairs of Stephen Colbert. 


Back in late July, King declared that it was odd that we should place the concern of animals over that of humans - and that doing so was crossing a moral line. 


"When the legislation that passed in the farm bill that says 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," he said. 


As Stephen Colbert so perfectly dissected last night, there's also something very wrong with King's logic; a point made even clearer after the Congressman launches into one of the most asinine analogies I've heard in quite some time. 


Moral of the story: If you defend dogfighting, you're wrong. It's as simple as that. Check out the video below:
