House Republican leaders criticize Rep. Steve King for defending white nationalism

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/house-republican-leaders-criticize-rep-steve-king-for-defending-white-nationalism/2019/01/10/7d27bdfa-1534-11e9-90a8-136fa44b80ba_story.html?utm_term=.37ab54a56048

House Republican leaders on Thursday stepped forward to criticize Rep. Steve King for defending white nationalism, breaking their months-long silence on the Iowa Republican and his history of inflammatory remarks.

King, who won a ninth term in Congress in November, lamented in an interview with the New York Times that the term had become a pejorative one.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King said in the interview, which was published Thursday.

King later issued a statement in which he sought to walk back his remarks. He said he rejects “those labels and the evil ideology that they define” and proclaimed himself “simply a Nationalist.”

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>

 

Please consider supporting our efforts to foster free and open discussion of current issues as they relate to the topics you are interested in.
