The Daily GOP Ignominious Part Deux: Steven Arnold "Steve" King, Racism And Iowa's (4th District) since 2013

Apparently, over the weekend a past racist Dutch politician commented about her hatred of Islam, blossomed again from the racist psyche of Republican Congressman King (IA). 

"I don't hate Muslims, I hate Islam." Geert Wilders,  far-right Dutch politician. 

White King is no stranger to racist remarks and an affinity for white supremacy, his latest remark is despicable enough a couple of members of the US Congress have commented with disapproval.

Today, a cable media except Fox News are reporting on King's latest racist exhibition.

Huffington post reported on King's comments as follows (includes minor criticism of King and his remarks).
U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has made no secret of how he views people who aren’t white, Christian or American-born.

An example of King's racism was so glaring the MSNBC host Chris Hayes, later quasi-apologized or re-directed himself for not allowing one member of this election night panel to respond.

How about another well-documented case of overt racism?

In 2014 Trump shared an Iowa state stage with the effusing racist. Notice Trump's utter glee and noodling as King showed why millions across America find the GOP abhorrent. 
I have read King is a seven-term representative from Iowa. Therein lies the ultimate a question. Are the constituents in King's district so oblivious and uncaring regarding his racism they will continue to hand the keys to a $175,000 per year seat in the US Congress along with all unnamed and unpublished perks?

The following CNN afternoon segment is worth your time in viewing.  If you are at work, ask your boss if she/he will allow you to get a bit of perspective on how one GOP surrogate feels about King's racism.  Also, not the other GOP talking head who seems to find King's remarks not so bad.

Iowa Values?
