Ted Cruz Does Not Formally Split With Steve King

Ted Cruz Does Not Formally Split With Steve King

In the wake of the shooting deaths of 11 people at a Pittsburgh synagogue, faith leaders are speaking out about Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King, known for endorsing Nazi sympathizers and tweeting white nationalist rhetoric.

"Stivers' behavior has befuddled every Republican that I talked to and everyone that I know including our leadership", King said. His strategy is say something; if the left comes at you and hits you over the head with it, double down."If you apologize like Megyn Kelly, you're done because an apology is an admission of guilt."King's Democratic challenger, J.D. Scholten, said he appreciated the comments from Curbelo and Stivers."I don't think it shows much leadership by continuing to allow this to happen", Scholten said in a phone interview with The Hill". The congressman has called the attacks "fake news". Their ultimate goals is to flip the House and impeach Donald Trump.

In the past year, King has endorsed a white nationalist running for mayor of Toronto in Canada, repeatedly retweeted white supremacist accounts on Twitter, and parroted Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban's remarks that "mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but a lower one". "You're done!" King was appearing at a candidate forum in Des Moines.

"No one questioned whether their well-liked representative, Steve King - the USA congressman most openly affiliated with white nationalism - might be contributing to anti-Semitism or racism through his unapologetic embrace of white nationalist rhetoric and his praise of far-right politicians and groups in other nations", the Post reported. "He has maligned some Latinos as having 'calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.' He has defended the Confederate flag and displayed one on his desk", the Post reported.

King has faced recent criticism for his comments denouncing diversity in the United States and immigration, as well as Democratic mega-donor George Soros, in light of the Pittsburgh shooting and a slew of mailed pipe bombs targeting Soros, other prominent Democrats and CNN.

"King is an Iowa Republican who is the member of Congress most openly affiliated with white nationalism".

The article also explained how the smears against King were played out on social media. Each of their tweets has hundreds of replies calling for a boycott.

Congressman Steve King exchanged heated words with a protestor who gained access to an event on Thursday in Des Moines.

The Anti-Defamation League on Wednesday urged GOP leaders to formally censure King and called on Ryan to strip King of his subcommittee chairmanship. It is not tolerable to accuse me of being associated with that guy who shot 11 people in Pittsburgh. And that King is in an at least marginally competitive race; his seat is rated as "Likely Republican" by CNN.

John Pleasants, president of the Ames Jewish Congregation, says King's offensive rhetoric has diminished the state's reputation.
