Virtuous Romney Says Rep King Has No Place in “Polite Company”

10

Virtue-signaller and Utah freshman senator Mitt Romney is calling for Rep. Steven King to step down because he’s unfit for “polite company.” That must mean King can be in Mitt’s company since he is anything but polite.

NO “PLACE IN POLITE COMPANY”

“He doesn’t have a place in our party, he doesn’t have a place in polite company and certainly should not have a place in Congress,” Romney said in a brief interview in the Senate basement on Monday.

Romney later told a group of reporters that “Steve King’s comments are reprehensible.”

He said King “ought to resign and move on and let someone else who represents American values take his seat,” adding “he should find a different line of work.”

Romney will support a primary challenger to King. That is what this is about for the left — taking the Iowa seat. e’s a strong anti-illegal immigration advocate in the Congress.

“I’d back him getting out of Congress and getting out of our party, as well as a challenge politically,” Romney said.

King has been stripped of all his committee assignments, and will be censured today as a “rabid racist.” Rep. Bobby Rush will say there is no place for a “repugnant and rabid racist.”

Speaker McCarthy, R-Calif., called King’s remarks “beneath the dignity of the Party of Lincoln and the United States of America.”

King’s comments “call into question whether he will treat all Americans equally, without regard for race and ethnicity,” McCarthy said, adding: “House Republicans are clear: We are all in this together, as fellow citizens equal before God and the law.”

Romney’s the guy who doesn’t support Republican nominees and lets Democrats fill the positions.

It’s not just McCarthy and Romney. Republicans are tripping all over themselves to berate the congressman.

THE STORY

King came under fire last week when a NY Times article quoted him as saying, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

King on Friday insisted he’s been misunderstood. He said on the House floor that the interview with the Times was in part a “discussion of other terms that have been used, almost always unjustly labeling otherwise innocent people. The word racist, the word Nazi, the word fascist, the phrase white nationalists, the phrase white supremacists.”

King said he was only wondering aloud: “How did that offensive language get injected into our political dialogue? Who does that, how does it get done, how do they get by with laying labels like this on people?”

The only Republican standing by him is Rep. Gohmert. Even his friend Ted Cruz condemned the remark.

The Times is believed over the congressman. H

  1. This is about picking off outspoken Trump supporters in Congress and the Senate. NeverTrumpers such as Mitt the choke Romney is more than happy to do the left’s bidding.

      • Me too. But like Rep King I also often wonder who are the secret wordsmiths & how much of these perceptual changes evolve organically but I don’t wonder too much anymore. I don’t think the wordsmiths are russian trolls & I think most of the perceptions are contrived. My other half is mumbling through his overgrown facial hairs that Mitt Romney is a threat to the nation. . .

  2. “Nationalist.” That’s wt the Founding Fathers were and what they fought and died for.

    This government, and the half of its population that voted for it, are disgusting.

    Maybe obama’s dirtcrap preacher,Jeremiah Wright, was right… “God has damned America.”

  3. If these moronic republicans hink that they are going to get kudos from the radical left wing msm or the democrats they are greatly mistaken. I would guess the article in the NYT was a hit piece aimed at King and any other conservative politician. Romney is a disgrace. He’ll be causing trouble for the next 6 years.

  4. The Black, Brown, and White races are different in their abilities and cultural values. This is indicated by their athletic abilities, governmental prowess, intellectual ability, prison populations, crime statistics, and when Nobel Prizes for Science, Mathematics, and Medicine are considered.
    If they are different, there must a difference in innate superiority. To assume otherwise is to deny reality. Ipso facto.

    Rep. Steve King is another victim of the ubiquitous PC police that quake in fear of the BLM and their suporters

  5. Congressional members should be supporting their colleague’s, and all Americans’, right to free speech. In addition, why is the NYT believed over an elected member of Congress? The NYT does not have a good track record of honestly reporting events or statements.

  6. Dem Rep Tlaib is openly anti-Semitic , Dem Maxine Waters appears to be extremely anti-white. Dems tolerate these character flaws and support individuals who are otherwise effective for the party. I have no idea what Rep King said or did, but Republicans seem to have to demonstrate how PC and pure they are.
