READ: New York Times Reports Rep. Steve King Said ‘White Nationalist, White Supremacist, Western Civilization — How Did That Language Become Offensive’

Representative Steve King (R-IA) came under fire after he questioned how terms such as “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” became offensive in the United States.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King told The New York Times in an interview which documented his hardline views on immigration. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

King told the Times that he does not consider himself a “racist,” but his comments have prompted many to not only call him out…

…but also answer his question directly.

King’s statements prompted conservative commentator Ben Shapiro to call for King’s colleagues in Congress to censure him.

“Congress ought to vote to censure him, and then he ought to be primaried ASAP,” wrote, before asking his followers to donate to the campaign of Randy Feenstra (R), who announced he would run to unseat King.
