"Iowa. Republican congressman Steve king faced fierce backlash this week after comments he made about white supremacy. He has shown no sign of stepping down amid mounting pressure from his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. She's John Mahovlich has been reporting on this story. He talked about it with our Brad Mielke on ABC's daily podcast start here. In the house. There was this full blown firestorm. This reckoning over congressman named Steve king. Congressman Bobby rush. Democrat of Illinois announced that he will introduce a resolution to formerly censure king citing a pattern of despicable comments. Steve king is from Iowa super-conservative, and what are the areas where he gets the most fired up is immigration. Also, electrified this wire with the kind of current there wouldn't kill somebody. But it would simply be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time critics have called straight up racist. But recently he went so far that Democrats decided to officially call him out on the house floor. They were joined by Republicans who decided to do something even more damaging ABC's, John Hobart covers congress, and so John how did we get here? Like, what it sees king actually say, well, Brad, it's important to note that this is this is a man Steve king's congressman who is well known for saying a lot of controversial things for everyone who's available Tori, and there's another hundred out there that. One hundred and thirty pounds, and they've got calves asides of cantaloupes because they're all in seventy five pounds of marijuana across the desert, really, this stems from a comment that he made to the New York Times in an interview where he questioned why the terms white nationalism white supremacy and western civilization, he questioned why those terms are offensive, and that really seemed to spark a lot of outrage not just on the left, but about among many members of king's own party. Wait, he said when did white supremacy become a bad thing? What does that mean? So I think this is language that you hear get thrown around a lot on the fringe on the far, right? These terms like, white nationalist. But I think critics would say that this language is is pretty much overtly racist or Steve king said this was taken out of context. Right. The he was just talking at that moment about apologizing for western civilization. Not not white supremacy. Critics have said that what you just pointed to that white nationalists have kind of used these groupings of phrases to make really racist insinuation. So. Everyone was kind of looking to see what Republicans would do. Right, right. So this is a pretty significant development among the Republican caucus Republicans got together. And Kevin McCarthy that house minority leader decided to not seat king on any of the committees for this new congress, which is really a significant development Brad because basically strips king of any of his discernible powers in congress this entire session. There are other options, right? Like, the congress decided to issue this disapproval thing, they they could censor him kick him out of congress. So is this really at a tipping point or are Republicans still sort of in wait and see mode? Yeah. That's right. Well, I mean, there definitely was a growing chorus of a lot of high profile Republicans that came out and commented on this. You had.
