    GOP senator: Rep. King's white supremacy remarks hurt nation

    https://abcnews.go.com/beta-story-co...icans-60318939

    Iowa Republican congressman Steve King says he's not a racist, but he faced intensifying criticism Friday over his remarks about white supremacy, including from a black GOP senator who said such comments are a blight on the nation and the party.

    For the second time in two days, King insisted that he is an advocate for "Western civilization," not white supremacy or white nationalism. But he didn't deny remarks published a day earlier in The New York Times in which he was quoted saying: "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization how did that language become offensive?"
    ================================================== =========
    King's comments were celebrated in a Tweet from David Duke, formerly of the KKK. King himself said he looked forward to seeing future generations where everyone looked the same.

    Sad to see the depths some in American politics have sunk to...How quickly some have forgotten the sacrifices the greatest generation fought to protect us from

    Less than one month before the Nov. 6 election, President Donald Trump rallied his supporters here Tuesday night, imploring them to vote for Iowa Republican political leaders who will support his agenda.

    Speaking before a boisterous crowd of about 10,000 at the Mid-America Center, Trump gave special shout-outs to Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds and U.S. Rep. David Young, R-Van Meter, inviting both onto the stage to speak. He also praised U.S. Reps. Rod Blum, R-Dubuque, and Steve King, R-Kiron, and urged votes for all of them.

    Steve King is one of Trump's very fine people.

    Steve King is a racist. This is not news.

    Steve King has been an embarrassment to the GOP since he was elected to the US House of Representatives. He is not and should not be used as a comparison to the rest of the GOP, as Senator Tim Scott said today...
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Really? Because it seems like the Republican Party has been rather mum overall on his racist leanings and actively support a President who has chosen to shut down the government to appease people just like Steve King.

    While I WISH he was an outlier to the Republican Party, unfortunately he is not.

    Putin loves the republican shutdown hurting and endangering the USA, along with our complete impotence overseas. McConnell is the ultimate traitor.

    Think what you wish. There are racists in both parties, and neither party is a racist party.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice.
