House GOP leader vows action against King over racist remarks

Tim Scott, the GOP's Lone Black Senator, Takes His Party to Task for Tolerating Unhinged Racists

Instead of answering directly, Scalise referred to Republicans' statements denouncing King's comments, and said "many Democrats" - he did not name them - had "aligned themselves with anti-Semites" and "called on physical violence". For example, Scott mentioned that over the past two years, "Republicans have focused on spreading opportunity, and it has paid dividends: From the creation of opportunity zones in some of our nation's most distressed communities to wonderful job-creation statistics and low unemployment rates, there's no doubt that the future is brightening for many Americans".

King, in an interview with The New York Times published Thursday, defended white nationalism.

"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?"

The long-serving representative claimed, additionally, that he is not a racist.

Action could include censuring King or removing him from committee assignments.

"We were very quick to reject those comments" he said on ABC's This Week. And I will tell you this: I've watched on the other side that they do not take action when their members say something like this. State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced this week he'd seek the Republican nomination, facing the nine-term King. It was stupid, it was hurtful, it was wrong. "Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives", he said. "It was wrong. And he needs to stop it", Cruz said. Asked if he could support King in the future, Cruz said: "What I'm going to do is urge everyone to stand for principles that matter". He also told CNN, "I'd like to see an America that's just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same". "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

He added, "I'm having a serious conversation with Congressman Steve King on his future and role in this Republican Party".

King serves on the Agriculture, Small Business and Judiciary committees, and chairs Judiciary's subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

Despite his long history of making Islamophobic comments, endorsing white supremacists and retweeting neo-Nazis, King previously faced little pushback from his fellow Republican lawmakers. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Sen.
