Steve King: Racist, No Comment From His President



During the 2016 RNC/GOP Conference (and in the heart of growing Trumpism), Iowa's Representative to the US Congress performed as such for the nation's racists and bigots.



It is important to note King is a long term Congressman from a district in the State of Iowa which obviously has no issues with his overt racism. Members of his party and the greater GOP know he is the most outspoken white supremacists' in the US House of Representatives.  Actually, no a surprise from an elected official in a party which has a core component (subliminal or not) with vestiges of bigotry and racism.

So King is tolerated by some and probably a welcome voice by others who consider themselves conservatives. Of course, there are conservatives who do not share his overt racism, but those people elected are non-elected are reticent to call out a very ugly aspect of their party, movement, and ideology. 

Well, one member of Congress has gone public. Fellow Iowa Representative Ernst spoke out.


Of particular note; have you heard any condemning, disavowing or criticism of King from Trump. The question is rhetorical. I know the answer.


And why would a US President speak out against King's overt racism when his son compared immigrants to items for a zoo fence? A  matter of psyche, privilege, and common disgust.
