    Western Civilization's greatest accomplishment is the inventing the means of destroying all life on this our only planet by way of nuclear weapons, (aka WMDs) not to mention the poisoning of the air, water, food and the wholesale slaughter of millions of people among other things. All in the name of the love of money and power, which is the root of all evil. The only one that can and will save us is Divine intervention. POTUS 45 alone puts an end to the white supremacy assertion.

    Funny, Russian xenophobe Stephen Colbert, calling somebody else a xenophobe. Is that the joke?

    I live in Iowa (thankfully in NE Iowa, so I don't have to claim this cretin)...but it's still so embarrassing. King came VERY close to being beat in the midterms - I was utterly shocked that he was reelected. But it was a big red reminder that there is still a lot of racism in my state...and that it's our responsibility to deal with it.

    Just one question: has he taken a genetic test to prove his whiteness?Because it seems some of these “white supremacists” don’t seem too keen on that ...

    "western Civilization" was not offensive until you said it, Mr. King.

    A hadrassa radicalizes Muslims, and Western civilization classes radicalize White men. This country needs to get rid of Western civilization classes.

    White Supremacy is de facto stare decisis.Whites are further superior over the other races than were the Harlem Globetrotters over the Washington Generals.If it weren't so,then why do millions from other races risk their lives to get to the USA,to Germany,to England,hell even to South Africa centuries ago,if not to partake in what White Supremacy created?Look around you.Virtually everything you see was invented/designed by a white male.That's superiority.

    It's about time. Steve King has been a black eye for Iowa and the nation from the first day he joined Congress. He's too stupid to know when to keep his fracking mouth shut. Like a chubby male version of Megan Kelly. Too stupid to get it. I can't figure out how this guy keeps getting elected. Trump probably loves him, he loves white supremisit assholes.

    King is obviously racist, but White and Nationalist does not equate to racist.Is Sanders anti-Palestinian because he is a jew?

    I am neither Republican, nor Democrat but The Democratic party has and will always be the party of racism (i.e kkk, Jim crow). The myth that the parties switched is just that a myth that easily dispelled with a little research.. Educate yourselves and learn our history.

    I'll of course give you "white supremacist", and "white nationalist" as basically just nicer words for the former....but "western civilization"? What exactly is wrong with that? It's not a precise term, for sure, and it has changed meaning over time, but it's still a useful distinction. It means a culture with predominantly European heritage. And while there are borderline cases, we can pretty clearly use it to mean "Spain and Canada", and not "Republic of Congo and China".The problem is only when the term is wrongly used to mean "white people". Western civilizations are typically and predominantly populated by white people for historical reasons, but by no means exclusively, and it's not a key feature.

    If any White person has to ask that question, then they're definitely part of the problem! i.e. racist

    It's not just Steve King. Most of the Republican party is as bad/if not worse than this. They are doing everything they can to prevent action on avoiding Catastrophic Climate change, destroying access to affordable health-care, wrecking America's finances, etc. Yet so many people keep voting for Republicans.

    If you do a simple google search, you'll see that the claims against Rep Steve King are all BS Propaganda. Rep Steve King is representing his constituents in Congress, they happen to be white; he has consistently said that being proud of your people and wanting the best for your people is great; he has also consistently been against hate, violence, anti-semitism. He is fighting hard for the safety of the American people, protecting us from criminal illegals, drugs flowing from overseas (though US pharma Opioids are an issue as well), immigrants being brought in to fill jobs that Americans can fill and have gone into massive debt to pay for college so they can fill those jobs. Harming someone or controlling someone because of their race would be racist and supremacist policies, Steve King has done none of these. We must all stand against BS propaganda!
