owa's two Republican senators have condemned Rep. Steve King's (R-Iowa) comments about white supremacy this week, as the members of the GOP continue to distance themselves from the remarks.
Sens. Joni Ernst (R) and Chuck Grassley (R) said they both condemned King's comments in an interview in The New York Times, in which he questioned why the terms "white supremacist" and "white nationalist" were considered controversial, with Ernst calling King's remarks racist.
"I condemn Rep. Steve Kings comments on white supremacy; they are offensive and racist - and not representative of our state of Iowa," Ernst

“”I condemn Rep. Steve Kings comments on white supremacy; they are offensive and racist - and not representative of our state of Iowa,” Ernst”
The Repubican “circular firing squad” has been assembled and is being led by this worthless tw@t. Repubicans can always make a difficult situation worse by opening their yaps!
This Republicans are either posturing or making knee-jerk reactions.
Why don’t they bother UNDERSTANDING what Steve King is trying to say before opening their big traps?
He worded it stupidly.
Even if true, which its obviously not, why is it a crime against humanity anyway?
Steve King has apologized on the floor of the House. He said he made a freshman mistake by taking a call from the New York Times for an interview. An interview that could be guided and from which things could be taken out of context. An interview which could lead to an article that Slimey Creatures such as the DESPICABLE JEB BUSH could use to help launch primary challengers against Congressman King.
What about the female representative that cursed President Trump?
What would have happened if she had called Obama that?
Will Pelosi deal with her depraved slur?
Wonder what steps Republicans will now have to take to prove they are not racists?
Well, since we’re condemning people...
I condemn Senator Grassley for being a doddering old fool during the Kavanaugh hearings.
I also condemn Senator Ernst for campaigning as a Conservative and then voting as a Moderate.
did Senator Grassley ever condemn KKK klansman and recruiter Senator Robert Byrd?
did Senator Grassley ever condemn President Obama and the House and Senate Democrats for honoring klansman Robert Byrd upon his death?
“I condemn Senator Grassley for being a doddering old fool during the Kavanaugh hearings.”
Yes, he needs to go! At 85, he’s the “Republican’s answer” to DiFi. He’s been in the Senate for 37 years, being “eclipsed” only by Patrick “Leaky” Leahy of the RAT Party @ 44 years, and only slightly ahead of Richard Shelby who has been vegetating in the Senate for 31 years. When we start identifying places as $hit holes, the US Senate should top our list.
CO’s Gardner did that too. He is a sure loser in 2020.
Richard Shelby: proof that AL Republicans are a confused lot

How long has he been in business? And he still hasn’t learned this yet? Not too bright perhaps?
Please read The Bell Curve. Even Darwin admitted humans could be sub-species, yet we are only told of his evolutionary thought.
White Guilt no more!!
Then again, we live in an age when saying “It’s alright to be white” is hate speech.
Term Limits Now! and make them retroactive..
Its a good thing he didn’t say he was a proud Caucasian.
“You could look over there and think the Democratic Party is no country for white men, he said.”
THIS? It’s a play on words. “No Country For Old Men” the MOVIE.
AND it’s TRUE! SCREW “diversity”. All you get with “diversity” is a lower caliber of individuals.
Why are most basketball players and football players Black?
BECAUSE THEY ARE BETTER ATHLETES! Would making the teams more “diverse” by adding more WHITES and women improve them? NO!
Has adding “gay” counselors to The Boy Scouts improved or DESTROYED it?
Is allowing “Trannies” to compete in sex specific sports improving or destroying sports?
Diversity for diversity’s sake is a cancer on our society.
I don’t like Steve King, but there was nothing wrong or racist in what he said
We live in an age where the ADL has stated that fourteen words define you as a white supremacist. What are these hateful fourteen words?
"We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children".
