Republican Congressman Steve King appeared to finally strike a nerve on his Republican colleagues on Wednesday after suggesting that rape and incest are a necessity in order to keep the world populated.

During an event at the Westside Conservative Club in Iowa on Wednesday, King questioned whether there would be “any population of the world left” if rape and incest had not occurred throughout history.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” he said, according to The Des Moines Register.

“Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that,” he added.

House Republican Conference Chairwoman Liz Cheney (Wyo.) decided to call King out after his controversial remarks.

“Today’s comments by @RepSteveKingIA are appalling and bizarre. As I’ve said before, it’s time for him to go. The people of Iowa’s 4th congressional district deserve better,” Cheney, the No. 3 House Republican, tweeted.
