Of course Congress should rebuke Steve King. AND ALL ANTI-SEMITIC DEMOCRATS

House Republicans acted Monday to strip Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, of his committee assignments in the House of Representatives after King told the New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” Republicans made it unambiguously clear that any flirtation with white supremacy will not be tolerated in the Republican Party. Now it’s time for Democrats in Congress to confront the hatred in their ranks.

After King’s remarks were published, they were roundly condemned by Republican lawmakers, including both of Iowa’s senators, Chuck Grassley and Joni Ernst. Sen. Tim Scott, R-S.C., who is black, wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post blasting King’s comments, writing, “When people with opinions similar to King’s open their mouths, they damage not only the Republican Party and the conservative brand but also our nation as a whole.” Others such as Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, have called on King to resign from office. Before stripping King of his committee assignments for the new Congress, House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., said, “I’ve watched on the other side that they do not take action when their members say something like this. Action will be taken.”
There are plenty of examples of Democrats making anti-Semitic statements, holding anti-Semitic views, or meeting with anti-Semites without condemnation from party leadership. --->
