Republican Steve King making racist comments in support of white supremacy is nothing new.
King’s latest controversy was he questioned in an interview with the New York Times why the terms “white supremacist” and “white nationalist” are considered offensive. Apparently, King does not have access to Google.
Senator Mitch McConnell replied quickly.
“There is no place in the Republican Party, the Congress or the country for an ideology of racial supremacy of any kind. Representative King’s statements are unwelcome and unworthy of his elected position. If he doesn’t understand why ‘white supremacy’ is offensive, he should find another line of work.”
Now, action was taken swiftly against King and now he is prohibited from sitting on any committee for two years. How is that any better? What is King doing now as his job? I have a better idea. Impeach King now!
I’m not usually that drastic, but again this is just more Republican hypocrisy. The biggest racist bigot in government also holds the highest office in the land. There is no need to provide a laundry list of President Trump’s racist statements, but even as of the last few days Trump continued with his attack of “Pocahontas” and Senator Elizabeth Warren. But when it comes to President Trump’s actions, crickets of the Russian kind.
The President is supposed to set an example for all others to follow and because the House and the Senate does not work for Trump, why aren’t Republicans speaking out against Trump?
Better yet, what bothers me the most is the incredibly frivolous Articles of Impeachment that was filed against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein by Rep. Jim Jordan. What did Rosenstein do again? Nothing.
But, because Rosenstein overseas the Mueller investigation, he’s wearing a target on his back for Jordan and all others that are working harder to obstruct the Mueller probe than their actual jobs. But being a racist? It’s all good!
Meanwhile, King will continue to take home a nice pay check and now has much less work to do. Sounds to me like it pays to be a racist in the Republican party, but it doesn’t pay to be a stand-up guy and follow the rule of law as Rosenstein did.
