DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Republicans in northwest Iowa ousted Rep. Steve King in Tuesday’s primary, deciding they’ve had enough of the conservative lightning rod known for making incendiary comments about immigrants and white supremacy throughout his nearly two decades in Congress.
The nine-term congressman, shunned by his party leadership in Washington and many of his longtime supporters at home, lost to well-funded state Sen. Randy Feenstra in a five-way GOP primary. The challengers argued that King’s loss of clout, even more than the continuous string of provocative and racially-charged statements over his career, was reason enough for turning on him.
Iowa Democrats also chose a challenger for Republican freshman Sen. Joni Ernst in a race earlier thought to heavily favor Ernst until her approval shrank over the past year. Des Moines businesswoman Theresa Greenfield, who raised the most money and garnered the widest cross-section of the Iowa Democratic coalition of elected officials and labor unions, won the nomination over three others.
But the focus was on the 4th District primary featuring King, the lone Republican in Iowa’s U.S. House delegation.King was stripped of his committee assignments in 2018 for comments appearing to question the criticism of white nationalism in an era of increased sensitivity among Republicans nationally about the alt-right and white supremacists. The congressman also made controversial remarks through the years about immigrants, Islam and abortion.
“There is a little bit of concern that he’s become tone deaf to some of these issues,” longtime King supporter Ann Trimble Ray said, referring to voters’ concern that King has been marginalized in Congress, though she remains a believer of the congressman.
Establishment Republicans suggested King’s ouster would easily keep the seat in the party’s hands, warning a King primary victory would jeopardize that by setting up a rematch with the Democrat who came within 2 percentage points of beating him two years ago.
King was vastly outspent by Feenstra and conservative groups backing him, including onetime King backer National Right to Life, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business lobbying group.ADVERTISEMENTSeveral of King’s former supporters shrugged at the litany of comments that fueled the congressman’s love-hate relationship with national media. However, they drew the line not with the comments in a 2018 New York Times story that seemed to defend white nationalism but with the reaction by House GOP leadership.
King was tossed from the Judiciary Committee, which would have given him a high profile role defending President Donald Trump during the 2019 impeachment hearings. He also lost his seat on the agriculture panel, a blow to the representative whose district produced more agricultural products in raw dollars than any district but Nebraska’s massive 3rd District, according to the most recent federal data.
“I personally feel very let down about some of the things that have happened because we need someone who is strong in agriculture from this area,” said former King supporter, state Sen. Annette Sweeney, who backed Feenstra.King said during the campaign he had been assured privately by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy that he’d support King’s reinstatement on the committees, a claim McCarthy dismissed publicly to reporters last month.
Democrats chose from four relative unknowns to take on Ernst in what has has shaped up to be a more competitive Senate race than expected.Ernst’s job approval and overall favorable ratings have dropped in the past year as she has sought to balance support for President Donald Trump, who is popular with Republicans but far less so among others in the state.
Greenfield had the edge, in part because of her compelling story of being widowed as a young mother and owing her rebound to Democratic priorities, Social Security and union benefits.Perhaps most notably, the 55-year-old Greenfield impressed with her fundraising, bringing in more than $7 million since entering the race last year. That’s at least $5 million more than any of her Democratic opponents and reflects the endorsement of the Democrats’ national Senate campaign arm.
While Ernst has lost some of her footing, it’s difficult to say how the Senate race proceeds in light of the continuing pandemic, the uncertain economy and now protests over over police treatment of African Americans, including in Iowa where Trump won by more than 9 percentage points in 2016.
One recent data point, lost on many except Iowa Democratic leaders amid the ongoing crises: Registered Democrats in Iowa edged registered Republicans in March for the first time in more than six years, and now also outnumber voters unaffiliated with either party.
“Anybody who can predict what the state of the economy will be, any sense of community people have, where the partisan tendencies go between now and November, it’s just really hard to say,” said senior Ernst adviser David Kochel. Read more: The Associated Press »
I absolutely love it. Sadly, he'll be replaced by another Nazi, just a more stealthy one. WOOHOO Stevennovick5 I’m sure he & Trump will hook up in some way. I see an informercial in their future! Yes!!!!! Good job🤙🏽 NEXT! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Couldn’t have happened to a more hateful person. Pity it wasn't to a Democrat. Also none of you are entitled to a pension or a salary according to Amendment 28 of the Constitution. Yes I used the word ENTITLED.
ABSOLUTELY🙏‼️ I’m not a follower of Mr. King BUT FROM THE INTERVIEW I JUST WATCHED WITH CHRIS CUOMO😳‼️ THIS GUY HAD TO GO‼️‼️‼️ OMG‼️ What is in this man’s heart🤷♂️🤨⁉️ His pause to very simple answers are HORRIFYING‼️ AND you’ve been making speeches about this to GERMANY😳🤦🏼‼️ Yeah what a loser
WHOO HOO!! ONE DOWN!! True conservative American continues to empty the swamp! Nine terms?!?! This is the problem with our country! Trump is for term limits!! What a shame... Lol Yes Yes Yes!!! We do our part and God will clean house. VOTE VOTE VOTE!!!! Good. Beautiful colored eyes. Rotten to the core heart!!
Well that’s one racist republican gone! JermarcusRobin1 They’re like grubs that scuttle away when you turn up a rock. They’re completely ok with racism as long as you don’t say it out loud. About time! It didn't go from red to blue. It stayed red! blueskiesalway2 This gives me an immense amount of pleasure 😁
Good riddance racist Man, his own party denounced him! Finally. However I'm still hoping that seat will be win by a Democrat Feenstra is equally as repulsive, he holds the same beliefs and positions without saying the racist stuff out loud. It would have been better had King won this primary. Yay!!! The PRO-dogfight, PRO-factoryfarm, PRO-cockfight, PRO- AgGag PRO-racism representative has been kicked to the curb, baby! BuhBye
Never forget that SenTedCruz thought it was appropriate to name SteveKingIA his presidential campaign chair. No. You and your fascist former free press friends destroyed him. The U.S. Press kisses the ass of the Democrat party. More time for his clan meetings! I almost wept with joy when I read this.. joy..
All that voted for this racist should be ashamed of themselves! NONE of you truly know what is happening in this country and NONE of you care! VOTE BLUE💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙 Hallelujah. This is a very good move but, Randy Feenstra's platform is to follow trump's mission, build the wall, and maga. He is just as dangerous.
Couldn't happen to a nicer guy They just don’t like that he said the quiet part out loud. The next guy will be more subtle. Still, good riddance. Good, but I doubt Feenstra’s any better GOOD. RIDDANCE. We need to support SANE, NON-EXTREMIST Republicans. Or LIBRETARIANS, or GREEN PARTY candidates. Don’t vote all blue in November. We still need a multi party system to keep our democracy. Do your RESEARCH before November elections. Too many parties is bad but not enough is WORSE.
realDonaldTrump Love this!! November looks very bad for Republicans. ABOUT DAM TIME!!!!!! GOOD JOB FELLOW 'AMERICANS' ALL AMERICANS MUST COME BEFORE PARTY LOYALTY!!! VOTE FOR WHO'S THE BEST FOR 'WE' THE PEOPLE NOT THE PARTY! it's a start!!! Let's keep it going, shall we?!? I don't need to tell you to vote like your life depends on it; realDonaldTrump tells you that every time he opens his lying machine he calls a mouth.
Hopefully among the first of many major positive changes to come in the next few months laloalcaraz Thank 98 9 zip 7i7z7,,⁷, , Z Z 78 99, , Z Vote JDScholten Was he DEMOKKKRATS or REPUBLICAN 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Best news ever ! I am sooooo happy he lost !!! Trump possee What a horror story. King is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the complicity the Republicans have vis-a-vis white nationalists. Yes, not calling it out and taking a stand against it is being complicit! Trumpian politics will be the anchor that takes them down.
The eyes are the window to the soul, look at his, pure satan. Don't practice conjecture or lose your head lmao Hopefully this is the first of many stagnate Republicans gone from Congress. One less loser. Let hope who ever replaces him isn’t a status quo Republican loser. “Thoughts and prayers” 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 Progress — love to see it! Well done, Iowa!
9 terms nothing last forever so don't let the door hit you on the way out. One racist bites the dust. Only 100 million to go! It's important to note that he was not ostracised by the GOP for being a white supremacist, but for saying the quiet part out loud. Just the start of the cleansing The draining of the swamp ...
Don't celebrate too hard. This may show that the GOP realizes they can't be racists and win seats but they will always be consumate coporatists, deregulaters, destroyers of the environment and will work to supress the will of the people through gerrymandering & voter suppression. Great! Finally - A good first step! GOP SaveTheGOP PurgeTheTeaFromTheGOP FormerRepublican SteveKingIA - Kiss your old Racist A$$ Goodbye! GoodRiddanceToWhiteSupremacy ThankYouIowa
Glad beyond words. There is more to do. Vote 📨🗳 King was an embarrassment to the nation Still Republican It is now time for the Republicans to pay a price. I'm sure this has them shook. Good! The tides are finally turning. America may become a democracy again! Thank god Buh bye SteveKing Goodbye !!! Should be ousted long time ago !!!
There are other Republicans that are just as racist that need to go as well. SteveKing is not alone in his racism within that party - this is an opportunity to keep it real and finally address our badly kept secret RacistInChief nycprotests BlackLivesMattter Buh-bye! took them long enough though, seeing as he never had a mask in the first place
If that Republican that won the primary wins the general election, we're going to get the same actions without the words. I guessing. The Republicans are so blatantly racist these days until the other guy might be worse than King. All of u crying,”Trump is a racist & nazi”, have been completely brainwashed by who u choose to get info from. They put their own spin. Try educating YOURSELF-on your own! Try unbiased sources! B4 he was Pres. & since, he has helped minorities-more so than any recent President!
Republicans were tired of his remarks as well. It's a good thing. I'd just urge people to become independents and leave both political plantations Thats funny all you ppl hollering vote them out dont even realize he was outted by the REPUBLICAN party for his actions. Had he been a democrat...that wouldnt be the case. Wake the hell up ppl!
One less racist to deal with,next racist is out The beginning of a new era. More to follow. Bye bitch Womp womp Now Trump's racist behind is Next!! Saw. It’s good Ooo, the Iowa GOP is forwarding a much more discreet racist now... See senatemajldr SenateGOP GOP THIS is what happens when you don't stand up FOR the PEOPLE. Watch come November what happens to your seats. This is another example of the PEOPLE speaking.
YES!! Democrats are the gift that keeps on giving now they’re destroying our cities our businesses and our homes thank you liberals Trump is going to be our president forever It's just heartbreaking, and sickening, that 155 years after the Civil War, we still have open, overt racists in OUR House of Representatives and Congress in general. Thank God this horrible person is finally on his way out, one more down. Goodbye, SteveKingIA, get out. racist
Best news of the week. YEAH IOWA. Anyone else wondering if Paul Ryan & Murdoch have signed him up already? 🥳🙌🏻 We need to get ALL of Orange 45's hinchmen out of office, Pronto! 🎵🎶 Na na na na Na 🎵🎶 Na na na na Na 🎵🎶 GOOODBYYYE!!👋👋🖕 Wait, republicans shunned white nationalists? I’m legitimately surprised
Putting one step in front of the other...soon they will ALL be walking out the DOOR and Governor Northram's MUCH WORSE remarks regarding KILLING a NEWBORN BABY were given a PASS by corrupt, immoral media. Also, his wearing of blackface-disregarded by media. AudriTwo Not enough good news like this most days.
Good for ya! I hope this is a sign of things to come Sweet baby Jesus, there is a god! Good! 9 terms and controversy should = time to move along! Now a Democrat needs to defeat Randy Feenstra! Good riddance A step in the right direction. This is Trump's worst nightmare. If there is anyone in Congress who represents Trump with his racism & decisive hate, it's Steve King. If his own party has turned on King, just imagine what's going to happen to Trump & the rest of his GOP traitors in November. bunkerbabytrump
Finally! Lol. Great day. Good, now he can join the rest of those fruit cakes over at Fox News, like Sarah Hannity and Tisha Carlson. pack your bags MF but keep the taxi door open more to follow! 😂😂😂there is a god out there All the guns in his Congressional office could scare the voters off! Listen to the voice of the people!
EricaGrieder But they'll back Donnie Hitler? Thoughts and prayers. I’m lying. See ya, jerk. EricaGrieder He's been making the same white nationalist remarks for 20 years, and the only reason this time was different was because congressional leadership finally removed him from committee assignments last year.
And the Nazis begin to fall. That’s one. He still got way too many votes! Thank you Iowa! Bye Bitch😊 2termsonly for all elected positions. King has been 'deFeenstrated.' Who is the Dem running against Feenstra? Freenstra is proud of his A NRA rsting and hardcore pro life. I want to know what Dem will take him down!
We are tired of the partisan rhetoric! Both parties beware! Good!! It's about time we put racism in it's place. This may prove that if you are racist, you will be voted out!! KellyFought “Insensitive remarks?!” No. Racist, hateful, white supremacist remarks. Do better. Say it with me. SO LONG, AND F*CK OFF steve king!!!!
👀 Bye Felicia Bye racist. Good riddence! He was byproduct of what a whole lot of Iowans felt. He couldn't have lasted this long without all of those racist keeping him in Washington We have no room for racists. One Nazi Down 500 more to go in grangers, senate and WH. Along with the Grand Dragon , Trump VERY GOOD!!!
'Shunned him', he's been in Congress for 22 years... Please They are going to replace all these Republicans supporting Trump. That's the only...I repeat...the only way Republicans will hold on to those seats Let’s see him walk around as just a regular person saying that crap in public now. BuffyLWillow Good! May it be the smallest ripple of a Tsunami that will flush away the GOP racists forever...
G’bye. Old (thinking) privileged white men: your time is up. Thank you God that Steve King is finally out! “Later Steve” is the new “Bye Felicia”. Yayyyyyyyyy! Great news, Nazis are losing. This whole Trump nightmare was just one pathetic dying gasp of white supremacy, and it’s shined a light on who they are. Racism will always be a festering pustule in the US, but we will squeeze trash like SteveKingIA out of the system.
..and don't let the door hit ya where the Lord split ya. Thank God this piece of shit is gone. Good You’re telling me that, if they put their mind to it, Republican leadership can actually send packing a bigot that is popular among his people? Nice to know! Out of the park and gone. Good news! All the racist republicans must go!
That's ONE This headline is disingenuous. “Insensitive remarks”? Really? Steve King has always been a white supremacist. He has been a representative of the people of Iowa since the 2003. His views are still a solid representation of the beliefs of the people of Iowa. 👍 I live in his district. Yesterday there were peaceful protests despite the 100 degree heat & thunderstorms ( the police chief brought us bottled water ) and we finally voted this utterly despicable man out of office. I’ve NEVER been more proud of this community. IA04 we did it!
YYYYYYEEEEESSSS!!!!! One POS down. Many more to go.🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 Hes a 🦏🦏🦏 TO ALL MY BEAUTIFUL EVIL TRUMPERS PLEASE DONT WEAR FACE MASKS !! THAT WAY I CAN SEE YOU SOONER THAN LATER !! Way to go Iowa!

This GOOD NEWS! 1 down, 20 million to go.... Republicans still gonna win the seat snowflakes Well this is a start! One less racist holding a political position 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾
The start of Trumps crap going down the toilet. When they are afraid to speak up against Trump more will loose their jobs. Clear signal that America Finally is tired of the Trumps. Too many racist comments from him THE WITCH IS DEAD Praises to Amighy God!!!!♥️✝️🎚🛐👏🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻💯 Finally draining the swamp!

You think 🤔 the crap its not working no more for 4 years we have 1 dont need more careless people like this
What took them so long? Good riddance! You need a new headline writer. King's remarks and actions aren't insensitive - they're racist, sexist, and bigoted. Yes yes yes The party never shunned him. And that is all you need to know. The tribe has spoken. HURRAH BashertIthiel Wow. District 4 finally saw the light

Mikedjr65 Goes to prove that our Freedom of Voting is powerful and speaks volumes to make change. All people, US Citizens, should vote and be heard. In November we will take down trump for his racist remarks and actions. It’s about time! Considering how close this race was, the facts about Steve King and the GOP currently in power, I have to say to you Iowa, 'What the fck is wrong with you?' that you almost voted this turd back in.
Some of those who run for office are the same that burn crosses It about time we got him out of congress Good. One down several to go. Further proof conservatives reject white supremacists.

We accuse the Dems of only acknowledging their voters at election time? When’s the last time you looked in the mirror at Primary time?

Bravo! One giant step for mankind! Taking out the trash nazi boy king a few more to go starting with Moscow Mitch Lindsey Graham Grassley McCarthly jordan Nunes And yet the racist still got 35% of the vote. Same % as MAGA folks...🤔 Good news ! Bye bye bigot. This is the end for the GOP. Hope you enjoyed your 4 years of tRump. It’s over kids.
Steve King defeated by REP Randy Feenstra What's the difference. Look at GOD! Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out king good reddens . Now it’s time to get the rest of lying clowns out of office along with the ring leader trump Finally!! Now he can go be a racist somewhere else!! RiP! 🤷🏽♀️

TG This is 2020 where old hates are supposed to be gone and this Country is supposed to be a Country a For the People, of the People, by the People to make this Country a strong United States of America !!!
Strange isn't it, trump cheers white nationalist every day, the party shunned King yet continue to be groveling supporters of Der Fuhrer ? Good for Iowa. Hopefully, the residents of Iowa voted king out of office because of his racist views and his unwavering support for Trump who has brought chaos to the Country, economy, society and the Republican Party.
Good riddance & good start. We've still got a lot of house cleaning to do O yea bye get him outta here 😂🤣🖕🏾🤡 Get the white out. Is that offensive? Bye bitch!!! I'm sure there's a great bootlicking jobs in the Administration for him now that he's been voted out. Goodbye to bad rubbish! Did he say anything new? Or are they just referring to old comments he’s made?
He gets what he deserves not only that but he asked for it by who he is as a person. One old farty Racist now replaced by a younger, handsome, Racist. Yay! REJOICE! Hellz yeah!! Throw out the trash! marthajadams Awesome! techneek10 Yep, that’s what happens when conservatives find out they’ve got a racist in their mix. We don’t keep going with the election after election.

YOU ARE NOT AMERICANS Republican Rep Steve King from Iowa MANY racist comments finally lead to his own downfall!👍 Republicans better take notice, there are more of them that will fall as well by November!!! I predict next to fall is Senate Republican Majority leader Mitch McConnell! GOP Republicans
Unlike Democrats, Republican voters reject boneheads Reporters on this story need to be clear up front. King lost because he lost his clout in D.C. The voters in his district had NO ISSUE with his white nationalist comments or views. King was powerless so they replaced him. This election was not a referendum on his attitude.
Don't let the door hit you on the way out, King! Well done GOP jojoinaz33 What is Feenstra about? The trumpets got rid of King because he would have gotten his ass kicked by a DEM... could this be the plan? If Feenstra is a loyalist to trump that’s really shitty. Happy the left is registering..now VOTE ffs
One down and more to go in both parties. Thank you Iowa! TatyanaAli Nobody...nobody likes an overt racist, not even the racists. This arse actually refers to himself in the 3rd person!! StephenKing The Iowa 4th finally got rid of the jerk for you. Rest easy now and may your peaceful life be restored. Good riddance.
A good day for America. Guy was giving Iowa a bad name. Good news.....Stop the Hate and Fear of the other..First step getting rid of Steve King!⚡️⚡️⚡️ The beginning of the end.... so good keep it up get old white men out. DearGoodPeople ”insensitive?” Okay 😉 Iowa just replaced one guy with another. Feenstra is a Trump supporter. GTFOH

😂😂😂😂 YAYAY!!! badtastjoke having king as a last name doesn’t put you on the same level. Personally I’m scared of the Iwoa personal that promoted you, but the evil known is better. Later asshole This happened because of anti-White racism! You love to see it None too soon! MagicMarguerite Ogun Kokomothegreat So long Steve...!
I actually like him but 9 terms is enough. SteveKingIA is a disgusting evil racist/animal abuser - so many years he’s been supporting abuse Iowa nytimes DO NOT EXCLUDE THIS INFO MercyForAnimals HumaneSociety ASPCA NYC USA SteveKing The question I have for the people of Iowa; why did it take this long to stop having a white supremacist represent you?
So he loses the primary not because he is a racist but because he is not an effective racist. Same ole song, different singer. KathleenMcCarr8 1 down! How sad...not finally! he is kicked out of the House! SteveKing is an opponent of immigration and multiculturalism, and has a long history of racist and anti-immigrant rhetoric and white-nationalist affiliations, but spellbound Iowans kept reelecting him. Its time for a change. 2020Election
Hello Iowa.This is Ohio. We are the 'United' States of America. No more standing for a political party. Time to stand for what is right. Bye now 👋 America is not a country of racist bigots. It is the leader of the free world. This is a step in the right direction for the GOP. Hip! Hip! HURRAY!! Happy to hear that King lost. He is a disgraceful racist.
You love to see it Good riddance. At last, some good news. And the GOP nominee won't have the advantage during the general election of incumbency that King had. I wish, this would teach 45 something Good. Fuck him. Probably replaced by a soft globo on that AIPAC dime. Okay, so when the ppl of Iowa have had enough, you know the country is trying to self-correct.
Outside police shooting boards commissions needed indepedent of policing structures beyond tampering by Chief or Commissioner. Civilian agencies work successful in many jurisdictions Bye bye racist! Let him be the first of many. Donald Trump will probably give him a job in his administration. Good riddance! SteveKingIA

SnowWhiteQween1 SteveKingIA - So long 👋🏻 Good. Fuck him. The GOP threw him to the wolves!! ...and they are to blame they lost the seat! Steve King is not a racist! He asked a question!! Later announces US Rep Steve King R-IA lost GOP primary. Although good news for mankind reducing 1 bad man, this is very bad as it ups prejudiced GOP voting, so bad for JoeBiden 2020 & bad for defeating GOP US Sen JoniErnst R-IA, so very bad for DCstatehood.

The rest of the state has hated him for years. BYE. You do not represent this state. Peace out racist. ✌️ Amazing the right takes out its trash, when will the left... Oh wait. They embrace identity politics. Welcome to the new normal.
Took nine years for the party to shun him... or he loses his seat then his party shuns him? Hopefully the first and hopefully it doesn’t take another nine years for the next white nationalist to be voted out!!! 😅 Brainwashing continues. Like a virus with no cure. Good luck with woke democratic rule. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂

About fucking time this asshole is voted out Good riddens Racist Goodbye asshole Only if Kentucky do the same with Mitch McConnell I can't like this enough✊ 2020 said hold up it's only the 3rd qtr I got time to right this ship. One racist down. Whose next!!!! Good. He is a disgusting human. Prick That's great. It really is. But who's Feenstra? Are people celebrating too early? I notice he hasn't said one peep about George Floyd, the protests, or anything to do with the BlackLivesMatter movement that's surging right now.
Insensitive language... What white supremacist editor at the wrote that? He was a racist white supremacist damn. Just say it. The “party” shunned him? Really? Uh huh. No. Don’t change the facts. He lost the election, because the people showed up to vote. Read the room. We have had enough. We know who needs to go. NoJusticeNoPeace
Next, the orange man Wonderful 🙌🏻 Good TermLimits Republicans: Mark Racist comments 40-50 times shame on you. 51 or more shame on me. Don't worry, Feenstra is a bigger racist than King... Pardon me whilst I cerebrate. Hopefully the first of many to be sent away..... If you love dogs, then you wouldn't elect him Dog catcher!
And how is the Left digesting this news — that conservatives are as anti-racists as liberals? Bahahahaha mofo! Y’all realize that another republican won his seat right.... not a Democrat good riddance. dude is nothing but an a**hole. One down Thank you Iowa Republicans.

MikeEmanuelFox Another win for the GOP 🇺🇸 Rep. Steve King is defeated by GOP primary challenger Randy Feenstra Good. Vote out hate Wait a minute, wasn't he endorsed? The question is, will he leave his office..this will be a good test to see if it will work .. Good. Bye, Felicia. So apparently “Yes we Klan!” Is not a winning campaign slogan after all. Good riddance to an evil racist
He forgot the first rule of White Club. Thats impossible the media says all Republicans are racist Garbage collection day Good, now he can go crawl under a rock where he belongs Good! There is no room for prejudice in government, need to start voting out prejudice and unethical criminals. So, when is it not a federal offense to shit on his deck? Asking for a country.

Rep. Steve King's future on the line in Iowa GOP primary tonightRep. Steve King 's future on the line in Iowa GOP primary tonight. The primary challenge to King is the fiercest since he was first elected to Congress in 2002. Please God hear our prayers and have SteveKingIA retire to his farm and tiny town of Kiran. Amen. I care that innocent people are killed by those charged with protecting them and the thousands that have died in this pandemic. BUT, there are even more serious problems that will unquestionably take far far more lives; global warming and the destruction of 'our' ecosystem!
Rep. Steve King—Who Embraced White Supremacy—Loses Primary Amid Nationwide Protests Against Racism Iowa Republican Steve King had his committee assignments stripped over racist comments and associations with hard-right and neo-Nazi politicians. To another white supremacist. A sign of things to come for the GOP It’s about time!
Tense protest at Iowa police station ends in peace as officers, protesters kneel togetherA tense protest ended with a show of peaceful solidarity in Des Moines , Iowa , when police officers and protesters knelt in honor of George Floyd. This would be a lot more meaningful if the police weren't dressed and equipped like they're going to war. Time to call it like it is...The Republican Party is Racism Inc. and Trump is their poster child. Remember Spencer's 'Heil Trump'? or KKK David Duke's 'Trumps our man'? The Republican Party spent years painting Blacks/Hispanics as subhuman, criminal leeches living on welfare. What a gesture!!!!!!
Rep. Matt Gaetz's tweet on hunting antifa hit with warning from Twitter for glorifying violenceA tweet from Florida Rep. Gaetz was hidden by Twitter with a notice that it violated the company's rules for glorifying violence after he posted about hunting “Antifa.' Same guy who tried to intimidate a congressional witness. The Florida panhandle is so classy. Why is Antifa in quotes? 😂😂😂 We see what you did there NBC.
Rep. who was pepper sprayed: Getting justice 'does not end' when protests doCongresswoman Joyce Beatty (D-OH) joins Ayman Mohyeldin after she was pepper sprayed by police during a protest in Columbus. Beatty gives full-throated support to the protestors who are 'hurting' but says she has 'no tolerance' for those looking to cause destruction. Stop that mofo, Trump! He wants blood in streets!!! If we are not forceful now, these CRIMINALS will destroy YOUR cities
Rep. Bass: Congressional Black Caucus looking at ways to hold police 'accountable'After days of protest and unrest in the wake of George Floyd's death, Democratic Congresswoman Karen Bass (CA-37), Chair of the Congressional Black Caucus, tells Andrea Mitchell the caucus will be holding an 'emergency meeting' today to determine their strategy, including their legislative agenda, and says that 'there needs to be a way to hold police officers and police departments accountable.' No one wants to listen to Rachel Maddow talk. Go back to covering the riots and shit her up. We want to see live video of stuff right now not listen to pure crap go back to live riot images It’s 1863 all over again, the Confederacy wants their Country back and has to do all of this to show it,starting with the Black lives matter,young black men being shot down,lynched the new way,using the muscle of the police force,and promoting hatred throughout the Country We need to hold the US accountable for what our Ancestors suffered by making them slaves. They were people first. You people in the CBC are always ignoring our REPARATIONS FOR SLAVERY! Stop talking around what really matters. REPAIRMENT of our PEOPLE in this country!
