Did Nazi That Coming

There is no such thing as too racist for the GOP.
On the other hand, there is such a thing as too STUPIDLY racist for the GOP, and Iowa Representative Steve King has crossed that bridge:

House GOP leaders moved Monday to remove Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) from all of his committee assignments following a firestorm over remarks considered racist.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) told reporters after a meeting of the Republican Steering Committee that King would not receive any committee assignments for the new Congress.

King faced bipartisan criticism after telling The New York Times in an interview published last week, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

King had been a member of the House Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees. He had also served as chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice in the last Congress, and could have stood to serve as its ranking member under the Democratic majority.


“We will not be seating Steve King on any committees in the 116th Congress,” McCarthy told reporters.

This is the first time that a Representative hasn’t had any committee assignments since Jim Traficant was expelled from the house in 2001 and 2002, and before that, it was more than 100 years.

The only question remaining is whether he will resign.
