I have no love for Rep Steve King. As the national co-chair for the Cruz presidential campaign in 2016 his actions against candidate Donald Trump and the other candidates during the Iowa Caucus has earned Mr. King permanent scorn. Thankfully he did not remain in the Leftist neverTrump camp after the election was won. And he has became a strong outspoken supporter of the Trump Administration. But I do not like Rep King.
Rep King has a lot of faults but being a racist isn’t one of them. This is part of the ongoing witch hunt against the President, his allies, and his supporters and base. Rep King’s remarks were taken out of context and skewed to fit a narrative of lies by the Left.
Unfortunately many otherwise good Republicans have fallen for this deadly trap. And the Left is salivating at the proverbial blood in the water.
Rep Steve King was speaking about how the Left labels its opponents as racists which makes things very difficult to defend. And in many cases the label is unfounded and unjust.
Rep King continued his talk and wondered how the term “Western Civilization” became an offensive term. After all he, and many others myself included, have sat through hours of classroom lectures on the merits of Western Civilization and all that it achieved.
These lines when taken out of context and the emphasis removed from the verbal speech can sound damning indeed. And the comment about taking a class is overlooked and glossed over. No one takes ore teaches a class on merits of racism. That is absurd.
This entire scandal is a fraud. The Governor of Iowa and our two Senators need to issue an immediate apology to Rep Steve King. And the rest of Congress needs to follow. Rep King’s positions on committees should be reinstated at once and any disciplinary actions should be dropped.
The longer this continues the worse it will backfire on the Left that started it and on any Republican that goes along with it.
