Iowa Rep. Steve King lost his congressional primary on Tuesday night, after years of controversy over his white nationalist ties and remarks.
“If we have a shortage of bacon you can’t be happy,” he said, attempting to describe the mass internment of the Uighurs in China.
“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King asked in January.
“I have a better insight into what He went through for us, partly because of that experience,” King said, explaining the backlash.
What will the Democratic Party and the media do with her? Will the media hold Democrats to the same standard it held King?
“The unhinged left has teamed up with Republican ‘NeverTrumpers’ and is pulling out all the stops to destroy me.”
“A Hamas-loving anti-Semite has NO place in government! She is a danger and would not put it past her to become a martyr and blow up Capitol Hill.”
“The focus of the piece wasn’t King’s embrace of white identity politics, which we assumed was well known.”
“He has become too comfortable with proudly insulting, disrespecting, and denigrating people of color.”
“Congress ought to vote to censure him, and then he ought to be primaried ASAP,” Shapiro tweeted.
