White Supremacist Rep. Steve King Wonders Why Being White Supremacist Is Offensive

U.S. Congressman Steve King  Twitter White Supremacist Rep. Steve King Wonders Why Being White Supremacist Is Offensive

"Today, the New York Times is suggesting that I am an advocate for white nationalism and white supremacy", King said.

His comment drew immediate blowback, including condemnation from two fellow House Republicans. He has said gay people are "condemned to hell", he believes it should be legal to fire people for being gay, and has advocated for gay people to lie and say they are straight to avoid being fired.

"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?" the Iowa Republican told the Times. I want to make one thing abundantly clear; I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define, ' King said in the statement, which did not deny the accuracy of the quotation.

While King has long maintained he is not a racist, he once endorsed a white nationalist for Toronto mayor and lamented "the Great Replacement"-the idea that a nation's families are being replaced by immigrants-in an interview with an Austrian publication. I am dedicated to keeping America this way". "One of my most strongly held beliefs is that we are all created in God's image and that human life is sacred in all its forms".

"Congressman Steve King's recent comments, actions, and retweets are completely inappropriate", tweeted Ohio Rep. Steve Stivers, then the chairman of the National Republican Campaign Committee.

Cheney, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, this month became the House Republican Conference chair, the third-highest post in GOP House leadership.

In announcing his candidacy, Feenstra described the actions so far of the new Democratic majority in the U.S. House of Representatives as "appalling". "These remarks should also be repudiated by Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and all of Rep. King's colleagues", Ryan wrote on Twitter. The candidate, Faith Goldy, has promoted books espousing anti-Semitic ideas and defending the white supremacist "14 words" slogan, according to the Toronto Star.

The political fallout came a day after a prominent Northwest Iowa Republican state Sen.
