In an unexpected attempt to deny the truth. Representative claims, he didn’t know it was offensive

Alright, alright – in my Matthew McConaughey voice. In today’s episode of Real American Douchebag. Representative Steve King (R) who according to the New York Times is;

…a 69-year-old former bulldozer operator with a combative manner, who has been elected nine times, helped write the book on white identity politics that are ascendant in Mr. Trump’s Republican Party. That provides both a template for Mr. Trump and a warning.

What get’s me is how he keeps getting re-elected. This is a clear indication of how asleep America really is. What is more, is this guy is pretty high up in the ranks of douchebaggery. It’s safe to say in my opinion he is a closet racist.

But, I’ll let you be the judge;

… at the same time, Mr. King’s margin of victory in 2018 shrank to its narrowest in 16 years. He made national headlines for endorsing a Toronto mayoral candidate with neo-Nazi tiesand for meeting with a far-right Austrian partyaccused of trivializing the Holocaust.

On Twitter, he follows an Australian anti-Semitic activist, who proposed hanging a portrait of Hitler “in every classroom.” And in October, the chairman of the Republican House elections committee, Representative Steve Stivers of Ohio, condemned Mr. King, saying, “We must stand up against white supremacy and hate in all forms.”

Mr. King lost corporate agriculture donors like Purina, Land O’Lakes and Smithfield. He dropped from an 18-point lead over his Democratic opponent in his internal polls to barely squeaking out a three-point win on Election Day.

If you think that’s bad, it gets better. Apparently, he has no recollection when western civilization decided that White Nationalists and White Supremacy language was offensive.

If he’s not bringing models of the wall to work, he is out supporting an end to birthright citizenship, disparaging undocumented immigrants – because well he is white and believes he is superior.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” Mr. King said. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”
