Republican Congressman Steve King has issued a statement saying he’s an advocate of “Western Civilization’s values” but not white supremacy
Congressman King is quoted in a New York Times story as asking why the phrases “white nationalist, white supremacist and Western civilization” have become offensive. King says he considers himself, by definition, to simply be a Nationalist. King went on to condemn white nationalism and white supremacy as “evil ideology.”
Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, a DEMOCRAT, has just called on the House to censure King.
The Mayor of Irwin told the Des Moines Register he would join Randy Feenstra is challenging King for the congressional seat in 2020.
