Iowa Rep. Steve King was finally stripped of his House committee assignments after one white nationalism-promoting remark too many; Republican leadership had long turned a blind eye to King’s promotion of European far-right radicals, his repeated defenses of white supremacist rhetoric, and the rest of his racist obsessions, but were finally motivated to take action after Republicans were plastered, nationwide, in midterm elections by voters contemptuous of the party’s new dalliances with such extremism.

Steve King is not, however, remorseful. He considers himself the Jesus Christ of white nationalist toads, or so he intimated to constituents at an Iowa town hall.

“And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ’s passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us partly because of that experience.”

Hmm. Just … hmm.

Wow… This man is completely delusional if he thinks anything he has gone through could ever compare to what Jesus Christ went through! He should be ashamed of himself for even thinking such a ridiculous thing! It’s also about damn time that the House FINALLY got rid of his racist ass! The fact that he was a white supremacist and didn’t even hide it and that was allowed to go on for as long as it did is absolutely disgusting! I’m pretty sure Trump’s upset that he’s gone cuz they both shared the same twisted ideology! Trump may not come… Read more »

Bottom feeders like Steve King (as well as tRump and his entire family) are too morally bankrupt to feel the slightest bit of shame! I look longingly to the day our national nightmare ends. We can’t afford another four years of these treasonous bastards in the White house as well as those enabling the orange shit-shard in the GOP!

I would love to see him explain himself, with such a blasphemous comparison to the “Prince Of Peace” to his maker when the time comes! There is a hell and the Great Spirit is much more imaginative with it for lowlifes like Steve King, than a silly lake of fire!!!
