Should the House Formally Reject Rep. Steve King’s Comments on White Nationalism & White Supremacy?

Argument in favor

In light of Congressman Steve King’s remarks questioning why ‘white supremacist’ and ‘white nationalist’ is controversial language, the House should condemn his remarks along with white supremacy and white nationalism in general.

The moment the government officially embraces white nationalism is the moment we officially become early nazi Germany. This must be whole heartedly rejected!

Anything that has to do with hate needs to be swatted. Doesn’t matter if they are Democrat or Republican if you spout hate or support hate you need to go.

The more we officially condemn racist speech and behavior, the more we communicate the message that it is not tolerated. Officially condemn King's comments, then the Republican Party should censure him.

Argument opposed

The House doesn’t need to take the time to formally condemn white supremacy and white nationalism given that countless members of Congress are speaking out against King’s comments individually.

Rep King is NOT A RACIST! He was speaking of NATIONALISM. Pride in your country, its founders, its laws, its heritage, its people. ALL of its people! There is NO White Supremacy and has not been for decades. Move on people.

Hell No! The term White Nationalist is a made up left wing term! It’s meaningless! I’m white and love my country and put this country first! I’m for the USA!🇺🇸 first and foremost and as I’m a disabled Vet as well then that makes me a White Nationalist! I not a racist and I don’t put white people above people if other colors! I served with men of color especially in the 70s and early 80s when white soldiers were the minority in the Army! Never had a problem! Do to you Leftie Kooks Out there! It’s time to grow up!!!!!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 Forever!!!

    This sort of hate comments hurt everyone and makes us all harsher towards each other with less compassion. Let’s be mindful of everyone and don’t contribute to divisions in our society. That’s enough that Russians and Chinese are doing it to us, let’s not undermine our values. Let’s ignore our leaders who are trying to divide us to gain more power or money and benefit by us fighting among each other. Our president is not setting a good example by not rejecting hate, nazi and white supremacies and putting forward policies that are racist or appear to be racist.

    Hypocrites, to denounce King but support Trump. Both are quite open about their bigotry. For them to notice NOW, when it’s been obvious for years, is disingenuous. At least it’s a start. Read Eugene Robinson’s column today. If you don’t want to be seen as the party of racists, stop protecting racists.

    Mr. king has admitted that he thinks white people are better than all the rest of us. Racism is racism, and Mr. King, in his twisted reality, is a white nationalist. Disgusting in 2019, to think a public figure would be so arrogant to say his racism is good for America...and then acting “innocent” about his beliefs. King is bad for America, and Americans do NOT want Nazis ANYWHERE!

    While I admit, Rep. Kings remarks are in poor taste, they are no worse than the remarks made previously by people such as Rep Waters, or former Vice President Joe Biden.

    Yes. While it’s heartening that many republicans HAVE publicly condemned Rep. King’s comments about white nationalism & white supremacy, there should be no ambiguity about this, and a formal statement of rejection and condemnation would put other Trump wannabes on notice.

    Of course we should condemn Steve King's open support of white supremacy! Why is this even a question? I think that because Trump didn't come out against Nazis chanting "blood and soil" and "Jews will not replace us," somehow people think we shouldn't bother coming out in very strong terms. All men are created equal.

    “Pass the same resolution ALSO for ALL Leftist Controversial Comments” I’m in support of the passage of the resolution condemning of Congressman Steve King’s remarks questioning why ‘white supremacist’ and ‘white nationalist’ is controversial language, the House should condemn his remarks along with white supremacy and white nationalism in general. SneakyPete..... 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻. 1*15*19..... The Top 10 leftist groups leading the “Trump resistance movements”. So America elected Donald Trump as president and you thought it was finished with the likes of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, leftist billionaire George Soros and radical socialists hellbent on destroying the U.S.? To shed some light on the leftist chaos, sabotage and disruption, WND has compiled the following list of the Top 10 leftist groups leading the “Trump resistance movement” and wreaking havoc across America. 1).Workers World Party Members of the Workers World Party, a hard-core Marxist-Leninist group, have appeared at anti-monument and anti-Trump events across America. 2). Color of Change One group that has attacked President Trump and advocated for removing Confederate symbols across America is Color of Change, a nonprofit that was co-founded by President Obama’s former green-jobs czar, Van Jones, and Huffington Post contributor and former director of MoveOn.org James Rucker. The organization is backed by former Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. 3). Onward Together Launched by Hillary Clinton in May after her failed bid for the White House, Onward Together is a political action organization that seeks to be “part of the resistance” against President Trump by funding many of the leftist activists organizing against the administration. Clinton reportedly sent $800,000 from her presidential campaign funds to Onward Together. 4). Indivisible Indivisible is a national anti-Trump movement that often targets members of Congress and calls for resistance against the Trump administration. It’s a collection of leftist activist groups with an average of two chapters in every congressional district, or 5,900 chapters that have popped up across America since Trump’s election. One of its campaigns targeted Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare. Another asks, “Are your members of Congress doing enough to fight white supremacy?” The group states, “President Trump is a white supremacist. How about your members of Congress?” Indivisible is supported by Hillary Clinton and her organization, Onward Together. It has teamed up with Town Hall Project, a group that wreaks havoc at GOP town-hall forums across America. 5). MoveOn.org (Billionaire George Soros) MoveOn.org, a far left group funded by billionaire George Soros that claims it has 8 million members across America, was launched in 1998 with a campaign of opposition to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton and emerged as a fundraising vehicle for Democratic Party candidates. Today, it is focused on pushing the impeachment of Trump. MoveOn is working to build 2020 election momentum, mobilizing activists across America through local organizing, town-hall meetings and door-to-door visits. 6). Antifa Antifa is a black-clad, bandanna and helmet-wearing group of self-described anarchists and revolutionary communists known for violence and threats. The name Antifa is short for “anti-fascists.” They’ve become a regular presence at anti-Trump rallies across the U.S. that often turn violent. Antifa is basically a network of many leftist groups that organize online and take a militant approach at rallies and protests. Antifa claims it has no official leaders, spokespeople or even members. Typically, a leftist Antifa activist will be a member of several groups on this list, organizing and “Antifa was there to defend communism and plunge America into chaos.” Antifa consists of a loosely affiliated network of communists, Marxists and anarchists who are anything but shy about their goals. 7). By Any Means Necessary, or BAMN, has been in the middle of quite a bit of the worst violence in recent months. In February, BAMN helped organize the fiery riots that resulted in the cancellation of a speech by Milo Yiannopoulos at the University of California at Berkeley. In a statement to NBC News, UC Berkeley said: “The violence was instigated by a group of about 150 masked agitators who came onto campus and interrupted an otherwise non-violent protest.” BAMN lists the following objectives on its website: • “Defend Sanctuary Cities! Make California a Sanctuary State! No Muslim Ban! No Wall!” • “Stop Anti-Immigrant, Anti-Muslim Scapegoating! Full Citizenship Rights Now for All Immigrants, Refugees, and Asylum Seekers!” • “Take Action to Stop ICE Raids and Deportations, and Racist Attacks on Immigrants!” • “Latina/o, Black, Native American, Arab, Asian, and White, Immigrants With and Without Papers – We are ALL Californians!” • “Abolish the Electoral College” • “Universal healthcare for all in California and the nation!” 8). UltraViolet In July, a handful of feminists dressed in purple from the group UltraViolet crashed the U.S. Women’s Open at Trump National Golf Club. They wore shirts that read: “USGA: Dump Sexist Trump.” They began their protest with a rally at Bedminster library and drove up to 40 cars, at 2 miles per hour, to the entrance of Trump’s club, the Washington Post reported. UltraViolet is part of a network of organizations that called for CEOs to resign from Trump’s business council. The group received $65,000 from MoveOn.org Political Action in 2016. MoveOn.org is a far left group funded by billionaire George Soros. 9). Industrial Workers of the World Members of other leftist groups have been appearing at anti-Trump protests, including the Triangle People’s Assembly, Industrial Workers of the World and Democratic Socialists of America. Members of the Industrial Workers of the World – a Chicago-based organization of socialists, anarchists and Marxists – clashed with police on May 20 while protesting a permitted remembrance of “Confederate Memorial Day” in Graham, North Carolina. Three IWW protesters who were armed with knives were arrested. A protester grabbed a flag, presumably a Confederate banner, according to reports, and tried to rip it up. All three groups – plus Antifa and the Workers World Party – were represented at the Durham, North Carolina, protest where vandals tore down a statue of a Confederate soldier on Aug. 14 and then blocked traffic. The protesters chanted: “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” And IWW turned out in force at a Seattle pro-Trump rally. And at a Laguna Beach protest Aug. 20. The IWW has come out strongly against what it calls “Trump’s Muslim Ban.” 10). Organizing for Action Yes, you guessed it. President Obama has his own links to the Trump resistance movement. Organizing for Action, the community organizing group that formed from Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign and Organizing for America, has offered “online trainings” on how to resist President Trump. Organizing for Action, a nonprofit that has more than 250 chapters across the U.S., partnered with the Indivisible Project (see “Indivisible” entry above) to offer the anti-Trump training,  “OFA has hired 14 field organizers in states home to key senators as part of its campaign to defend Obama’s signature healthcare law.” The group still has strong ties to staffers who have worked under Obama and even Hillary Clinton. • Jesse Lehrich, former Hillary Clinton campaign spokesman, is OFA’s communication director • Jim Messina, former 2012 Obama campaign manager, is OFA’s co-chairman • Jon Carson, former Obama White House aide, is also OFA’s co-chairman • Katie Hogan, former Obama campaign deputy press secretary, is OFA’s executive director • Jack Shapiro, former Obama for America general election director, is OFA’s director of policy and campaigns • Aaron Buchner, former organizer for Obama for America, is OFA’s chief of staff.

    We need to “ALL” become Americans. No more White Supremacy, Neo Nazi, Black Power, Black Lives Matter, White Lives Matter this all BS. We are all Americans First. Get rid of all prejudices and segregation statements and slogans. I served in the service and worked with every nationality, race, creed and gender there is. We all wanted to earn a good living have a home , family and be Americans. Most people who makes statements like this only think of themselves FIRST, then realize their stupidity and want to apologize. Only so they can stay in their above God life style. They really do not think of their constituents or they would have thought first then opened their mouth.
