'GOP House Leadership Silent on Rep King's Genodical Statements But GOP's Racist Contempt For Blacks is Loud & Clear'
All racists are liars b/c racism is carried out by deception. Facts reveal that no one misspoke. From [HERE] House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday called on GOP leaders to remove Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) as chairman of a subpanel within the House Judiciary Committee as punishment for his controversial comments in support of a nationalist Dutch politician.
King has doubled down on his original Sunday tweet praising Dutch politician Geert Wilders, saying, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”
Speaker Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) office said Monday that he “clearly disagrees and believes America’s long history of inclusiveness is one of its great strengths.”
Pelosi said Ryan’s response didn’t go far enough to condemn King’s views, which she described as “racist.” She argued that King, who’s served in the House since 2003, should lose his position as chairman of a House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.
“Steve King’s racist statements must be called out as unacceptable, and the tepid, brush-off response from the Speaker and the GOP leadership is disgraceful,” Pelosi said in a statement.
“Where are Speaker Ryan and the GOP leadership? Does their silence mean Congressman Steve King’s vile racism is acceptable? House Republicans think they can keep quiet, but their contempt for the great diversity of our nation is being heard loud and clear.”
Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong dismissed Pelosi's suggestion. She pointed to Pelosi ducking questions earlier this month about Congressional Black Caucus Chairman Cedric Richmond's (D-La.) joke about White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, which many on the right found crude and in poor taste.
