Republican Rep. Steve King - who has always been a target for criticism because of his public comments on race and immigration - rejected Thursday being labeled a white nationalist, following bipartisan outrage for comments he made appearing to lament that white supremacist comments are considered offensive.
In true form, Rep. Steve King (R-IA), who barely squeezed out a win in his latest reelection bid after he lost several corporate donors over his chumminess with neo-Nazis, has a burning question: Why is white supremacy offensive? But already, one Republican Congressman is making life hard. "Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives", he said.
Like the Founding Fathers, he wrote, "I am an advocate for Western Civilization's values". I am dedicated to keeping America this way. "I reject white nationalism, I reject white supremacy, it's not part of any of any of my ideology and I reject anybody who carries that ideology". Once again, I reject those labels and the ideology that they define.
King's statement came after lawmakers from both parties condemned his earlier comments.
Justin Amash of MI, tweeted, "This is an embrace of racism, and it has no place in Congress or anywhere". "Steve's language is reckless, wrong, and has no place in our society".

Despite these words, King has made comments in the past that favored contributions from white people compared to those of other races.
