Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene removed from House committees
"News. Last night, House Republican leadership met for hours trying to decide what to do about controversial GOP congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene. In the end, the deeply divided house voted 230 to 1 99 to strip her of her committee seats over incendiary remarks she made before being elected in November. Before the vote, Congressman Greene spoke to her colleagues saying it all started after President Trump was elected. She certainly supported him. But she didn't like what she heard about Russian collusion. These things bothered me deeply. And I realized just watching CNN or Fox News. I may not find the truth. And so what I did is I Started looking up things on the Internet, asking questions like most people do everyday use Google And I stumbled across something and this is at the end of 2017 called Q it on Well, these posts were mainly about this Russian collusion, information. Ah, lot of it was some of what I would see on the news at night, and I got very interested in it. So I posted about it on Facebook or read about it. I talked about it. Ask questions about it, and then more information came from it. But you see, here's the problem throughout 2018. Because I was upset about things and didn't trust the government. Really? Because the people here weren't doing the things that I thought they should be doing for us. The things that I just told you I cared about And I want, you know, a lot of Americans don't trust our government, and that's sad. The problem with that is, though, is I was allowed to believe things that weren't true, and I would ask questions questions about them and talk about them. And that is absolutely what I regret. Because if it weren't for the face, book post and comments that I liked and 2018, I wouldn't be standing here today and you couldn't point a finger and accuse me of anything wrong. Because I've lived a very good life that I'm proud of. My family's proud of my husband's proud of my Children are proud of And that's what my district elected me for. So in 20 later in 2018. When I started finding Miss information lies things that were not true in these. Q and on post, I stopped believing it. After Congressman Greene spoke Majority leader Steny Hoyer reference the historic nature of this vote. It was pretty historic when you think about what they did last night, where 11 Republicans joined Democrats in voting to kick her off of those committees. I've had the great honor of serving this body for 40 years. And in that time I have never encountered a situation like the one before us. Now we remember has made such vile and hurtful statements engaged in harassment of colleagues. Expressed support. Political violence. To do nothing. Would be an abdication of our moral responsibility to our colleagues to the house to our values to the truth and to our country. I've heard some condemnation from across the aisle of the contents. Representative Green statements. Some have condemned the white supremacist an anti Semitic things, she said, and posted online, some of condemned the falsehood she shared about 9 11. And the horrific school shootings. But I've heard little from Republicans about the horrific statements made by their colleague making threats of violence against Democratic elected officials. And her threatening conduct towards represented Bush and others. Indeed, Mr Speaker, there seems to be much silence when it comes to her incitement of political violence. Short while ago Representive Green came to this Florida defender indefensible conduct. I heard no apology. She claimed that we are here today only because of something she wrote online before she ever ran for Congress. And if one's moral slate is wiped claim when one becomes a candidate for office Regardless, the conduct we are judging today continued to occur even after represented Green became a candidate and even after she was elected, there is no doubt that if somebody came to the Congress, and it said before they came to gun Congress Am for violent revolution against the government of the United States of America, that your party Would say That's not somebody we want to be associated with. That's not what she said. I do not assert that What should we do Less? Then you did for Steve King for far less toxic language. Let us not do nothing. Let us do the right thing. Majority Leader Steny Hoyer last night before that historic vote 6
House panel weighs resolution to remove Greene from committees
"Snapshot of the divided Republican Party. Just look at what's happening today In the House of Representatives, GOP leaders are weighing fates of two very different members of the party. One is Liz Cheney, the number three Republican in the House who voted last month to impeach then President Donald Trump. The other is freshman Marjorie Taylor Greene, a Trump loyalist known for spouting conspiracy theories and bigoted comments. We're joined now by NPR Congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez and Claudia House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy has supported Chani. But he's also said he has concerns about her impeachment vote. Trump allies like Florida Congressman Matt Gates even went to Wyoming to urge her constituents to vote her out of office. And here's another critic, Ohio representative Jim Jordan. When you're the conference chair, and you're the person who speaks for the conference, and you take a position that 96 to the conference, disagreed with and you do that ahead of time. She didn't She didn't just go voter conscious. On the day of the vote. She spoke ahead of time. 36 hours put out a statement in the sharpest possible terms. That's a concern. So Claudia is Liz Cheney in real danger here that remains to be seen. Today's GOP conference meeting later today on Capitol Hill will be a real signal there on where the party and Cheney go from here. This is all emblematic of this. These widening divisions were seeing in the party right now former President Trump left a vacuum of power as well as a dye identity crisis. For the GOP, a Republican strategist mention to me that with Trump, the populist wing of the party is swallowed up the establishment wing of the party time and time again, and we're seeing that play out in real time right now. This is the Republicans lost the house, the Senate, the White House under his man and under his administration, So the party is in the midst of this civil war If you will, and these members who remain fierce Trump loyalists are targeting Cheney. At one end well establishment Republicans are supporting Cheney at the other. Sure and change. The daughter of a former vice president represents the establishment in many of the populist side would probably mean embodied by Marjorie Taylor, Greene and House Democrats. Claudia want to strip her of her committee assignments, which would be a pretty severe rebuke and reminds me that House Republicans did agree a couple years ago to strip Steve Steve King of his committee assignments after he had publicly questioned why white supremacy is offensive. And then he lost his next primary, and that is out of office now. So is there a parallel here? Yes, In some ways there are a Democratic leadership aide told me this morning that House Majority leader Steny Hoyer told his caucus. That McCarthy needs to repeat the same action he took with King, which is move green off all of her committees, and Hoyer spoke to McCarthy this morning after that phone call with his caucus. Signaling the potential for a deal here between both sides before your said Democrats are moving forward with the resolution to remove green from her committee's This is really rare and even higher, has said this could backfire where the GOP could force their members off panels in the future. That said Democrats are determined where said that he spoke to McCarthy. And there's clear clearly no alternative to holding Ah, floor vote on this resolution to remove grain from her committee assignments. The Rules Committee will meet this afternoon to sort out how that debate will play out and it looks like the House will vote on this resolution tomorrow. Okay, so that's what's going on in the House Real quick Cloudy in the Senate. The impeachment trial starts next week, and Republicans are also gonna have to decide how loyal they're going to be to the former president. So in the moments we have left how many Republicans seem willing to convict at this point We saw five GOP senators break with her colleagues in a vote to say the trial is constitutional. That's a clue to what we could see in terms of the votes to convict Trump. There are some who left the door open that could join that group, but it looks like it will be a minority of Senate GOP members. I see many focusing on the process lend less So the substance that's NPR congressional reporter Claudia Gonzalez. Thank you. You're

"steve king" Discussed on MSNBC Morning Joe
"How did that language become offensive. You heard from republicans calling from steve king to step aside. Here's some democrats. Were saying yesterday. You would think it would be pretty easy to come out against rape and incest then again. You'd think it'd be pretty easy to come out against white nationalism so this is just one more example why there needs to be a sane representative in that district and that's why i think j._d. Shelton will be excellent public servant for people that district well. It's extremely disturbing and i would think anybody anybody who had said something that extreme would resign but then again. I doubt that he'll actually do it so we're just going to have to beat in the old fashioned way. Thankfully there's a terrific candidate candidate j._d. Shelton and i think voters district are looking for a change your j._d. Shelton's name there. He's running against congressman for. I was fourth district seat. He said in a statement quote yet get again. Steve king puts his selfish hateful ideology above the needs of the people of iowa's fourth district excusing violence in any way is entirely unacceptable comments or disrespectful respectable two survivors and they don't reflect island values a number of democratic presidential candidates including john delaney jay inslee aurora kamla harris tweeted appeals appeals for donations to shelton's campaign while others including joe biden bernie sanders and kirsten gillibrand all calling for king to resign with both sanders and agila brian calling king disgrace not sure what else to say about this. It's disgusting and appalling jonathan lear but he will get a primary challenge allen's even before he gets to j._d. Sheldon this voice. I think people would like to hear weigh in on this and that's the president's defended steve king in the past. He certainly has at times like half stepped stepped away from as he's he's. I wouldn't say distances software. Congress became far from it. He sort of d of steph portrays himself some of the remarks but king represents a portion portion spouses are those shared by the president not these but some of his rhetoric about immigration muslims have not too far off with the president who said said there are people who support congress king who support president trump and he's always reluctant to sort of alienate. Those remarks obviously outrageous. I think it'd be as you watch these next. A couple of days or is there more pressure. We know the democrats of course we'll continue to criticize but will be more pressure from other republicans. You know yes. We've already striven committees but will they actually try to force him out outweigh really lean on king to say you need to go. We could lose the seat and as you say it's one of king's strongpoints in iowa. He brags about his relationship as president trump is close. I have the president's here. He trusts me.

"What do you mean by that explain that because a lot of people are going to hear that? And that's not going to. That's not gonna come across to them is just sort of a benign comment. I think there's something about Steve king. I think I find to be awful on a number of different levels. I think he has plenty of bad ideas that made him unacceptable to me. I would start with the fact that he is explicitly homophobic. But if we're going to excommunicate him from congress, I might not want to do it on what I find to be a slow, frankly completely unpersuaded give allegation. But no one seems interested in this at all. And I think it has something to do with our victim categorical imperative that's racist. We have to get away from it as quickly as possible we have to make certain that we condemn it as loudly as possible. In fact, even Steve king is apparently going to vote for for the resolution that is decrying 'em is awful in monster. It if I just real quick, I you know, I've been on the Steve king beat for a while I've generally found him unfit for congress for a lot of reasons, and I will say, he's racist and homophobic. I don't even. Well, I get all the it's if it wasn't the New York Times, if if these comments weren't published in the New York Times don't feel like the GOP would have said, okay. This is the time. This is the time to galvanize and this is the time to say, hey, we're we're going to close ranks and we're going to. You know, make sure that everyone knows he's not with us. If it was if it was, you know. Strating for me for any other reporter who's covered. Steve king. I mean, like it's he's been kind of like a dirty little secret for a real long time. He's been there for a while. He's been somebody who's who prominent Republican presidential candidates have sought his endorsement because he's in Iowa President Trump. Sure, I mean. Cruise though, I it strikes me as a different point. I think we're having the conversation about whether or not Steve king is racist point that I was trying to draw out is from the particular allegation precipitating event that has led to this particular excommunication because of the time it's maybe it's because of the times. But in either case the question is is it what everyone seems to be want to say. And I'm saying that it is an obvious because behave as if it if it wasn't obvious perhaps. That's why it took several days for the national media to really take seriously. Right. Media matters from the left call out CNN MSNBC and FOX for not going wall to wall with this right away compared to the quote from from the DEM, perhaps the newsroom's weren't quite sure..

"Democratic congressman Bobby rush introduced a censure resolution against Iowa Republican congressman Steve king today, which was then read by the clerk on the house floor. Whereas on July thirteenth two thousand six on the floor of the house of representatives comparing immigrants to livestock Representative Steve king of Iowa stated. We could also electrify this wire with this kind of current that would not kill somebody. But it would simply be discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. We do that with livestock all the time. The censure resolution was then referred to the house ethics committee for review on Monday. House. Republicans stripped Steve king of his committee assignments local newspapers, Steve king's home state of Iowa are now calling for his resignation yesterday that the Moines Register editorial board wrote Steve king should resign. He has lost even the potential to affectively represent his Iowa constituents these Sioux City journal editorial board previously endorsed king wrote. It's time for Steve king to go. Here is what Steve king said in a radio interview yesterday when asked if he would resign. You have no committees left Lewinsky this question, are you going to resign? No, no chance at all. I'll go out of this place dead before that happened. Then the Lord will have to make that. Here's what Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said when asked about Steve king and President Trump. Condemn Representative king for his comments. And I'm wondering what also condemned. President for the mini insensitive. Comments racially can come into the. Look at my practice for the last couple of years, not to make sort of random observations about the president's tweeting and other things the one thing the hustle resentatives is now United on is condemning Steve king. Why now Republican minority leader of the house? Kevin McCarthy seemed to suggest that Republicans shoot have condemned. Steve king earlier under the leadership of Paul Ryan. When we come back former Senator Claire mccaskill and Jason Johnson will consider what has changed in the house of representatives that has turned Republicans against Steve king. Here's the Republican minority leader the house representatives Kevin McCarthy talking about Steve king on a radio program in Kevin McCarthy's district. And this wasn't the first time that he used his anguish. Absolutely. Would he use this? I came out directly in denounced it which frustrated, but I knew that I watch past leaders did not act, and I just felt I don't care if it hurts me or not I gotta just do the right thing. Absolutely. When I looked in the back of the things he had said, even recently and done that doesn't reflect us and it can't reflect us. During our discussion. Now, Jason Johnson politics, editor the root dot com and MSNBC contributor and former democratic Senator Claire mccaskill who is also now an MSNBC contributor is back with us. Jason johnson. A who could Kevin McCarthy be talking about? He's talking about past leaders apparently recent past leaders of the house representatives. I guess he couldn't he couldn't think Paul Ryan's name. Yeah. Couldn't remember Paul Ryan. He couldn't remember rights Ribas. He couldn't remember tons of other leaders of the Republican party. This is not new Steve king has been white nationalist for years. He has said white nationalist things. They have heard about them. They have dismissed these statements in the past this newfound religion of the Republican party, which is let's condemn white nationless talk. But let's not stop white nationalist policies. Does not impress me at all. So the idea that McCarthy can't really remember. It says this isn't us. This is you this is the Republican party. If you have someone like that who was in your party who has felt comfortable behaving in this way for ten years. And you have several other people that have the same belief system. They just know how to say it was sugar on top. That is a reflection of your party to you make those fundamental changes..

"I'm compiling comparing contemporary politician to contemporary politician on both sides of the aisle. The only difference of courses that Steve king has been remorseful and has apologized and Democrats are still proud of it all there's still smiling. And they're still championing these these almost identical ideologies. And if it's what aboutism what about what aboutism. What about it? I would. Vote along with Steve king for that rebuke for that condemnation of Steve king and his remarks, but before I did that I would insert an amendment if I were in congress, and I would also include a rebuke of Rashida to Leib and Delano mar Barack Obama for smiling with Louis Farrakhan, I would insist on that being included in the condemnation and the rebuke, and we should have done that as well. I think Republicans they wanna get rid of Steve king because he's politically poisonous at this point, and he's past his political usefulness, and he's been in the career for a long time. And he's probably gonna lose his primary next go round. They just want to stop talking about it fine. I get the political expedience of that. But I would insist on including those condemnations of Omar tha Leib and Barack Obama because without those condemnations also in the condemnation of Steve king. It is very clear that Democrats have no interest whatsoever in. Condemning racial bigotry. They're only interested in attacking the GOP, and they're not even just interested in attacking the GOP. They're interested in using Steve king as a proxy to attack Donald Trump. They don't care about Steve king. Steve king is just some congressman one of over four hundred people just doesn't who cares. What he's you know, he doesn't affect the country in the way that the president does. And they want to call the president racist and bigoted, and this is and that is they want to tie the issue of illegal immigration to racism somehow. That's all they want to do and they are unwilling to deal with it in their own party. Linda sore sore. Another anti Semite had was given an award by Barack Obama in the White House as she has had close ties to the Democratic Party and to the women's March the list goes on and on and on if they want to condemn Steve king by all means go for it. If they want to condemn racial bigotry. Three and hatred. Please great more power to you. But do it on both sides. Otherwise, you're a fake you're fraud. You're a cynical politician. That's what the Democrats are on this issue. Let's see what those cackling hens to us nor McDonald's phrase had to say at the view about this issue. Republicans now step up to the plate with Donald Trump because he has been using I think the border wall as sort of this dog whistle for racism, but government is still shut down. And I think it's all about let's not let all these Brown people in right, unless they're working for farmers unless they're working in agriculture. So now, we'll the Republican party step up to him and say, we don't want any there anybody. There's forty two percent of this country. That's worth the wall. Are they all racist? That's a good question. I'm not saying that I don't I think. So I don't think so. Believe. Okay. So it goes on kind of love, Abby Huntsman, mild, pal. She just is great there. She says what do you think half the country is racist? And this woman whose name I don't know says, well, that's a good question. And whenever someone says, well, that's a good question. It means they just have no idea what they're gonna say. They have nothing to say. I would always on whether I'm conducting an interview or I'm on a panel with somebody. And we're doing interviews. You say what do you think about this say that's a good question? Saying no, it's a good question. I thought it up. I'm thank you for the compliment answer the question, but she thinks that this woman clearly thinks that half of the country is racist. And Republicans are is Steve king racist is the wall racist, they ask oke or Barack Obama and Ilan, Omar and Rashid it's sleep racist. Or they are democrat analysts on CNN racist for trying to shut up white people by using these ad hominem attacks, white privilege. Ironically against a black guy doesn't work every time..

"That we have some new equipment. We've replaced our North Korean equipment with South Korean equipment. I think so hopefully, it'll work in the future. There's been a lot of talk about Steve king people have jumped out he should resign. He should be sanctioned. He should be tarred and feathered he should be hanged from telephone poles. Honestly, I'm trying to get to the bottom of this. I read what he said in the New York Times and how they excerpted I heard what Kevin McCarthy had to say. I looked at Steve king's response. This is really a stupid statement. Very stupid. He says look that's not the context in which I discussed this. I would encourage the New York Times to release the recording. So we can get a full transcript of everything that was said. I don't know why Steve king talks this way. Maybe he's in articulate. I don't believe he's a clansman dressed up as a congressman. That's been news to the people of Iowa for eighteen years and news to the Republican party for eighteen years. I make no excuses. I've been targeted by Neo Nazis and Klansmen we've had to have. Detectives investigate this stuff around here, my home and my business. Well, let's have a website called Mr. producer. I always forget it. The daily Stormer. I was the person they hated the most always me with a big nose or a Jewish star on my shirt in a concentration camp outfit that sorta stuff. So this is serious stuff to me. And if I believe in know for sure that this is where Steve king is coming from. Then I'll join the ranks of all the others. But here's the thing. That does bother me. Make no excuses for him. But here's the thing. That does bother me. I've been talking about rising anti-semitism within the democrat party in the Obama administration. In much of what you need Carter says. Keith ellison. Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, these two new congresswoman once Palestinian, they're both Muslims and alien, Omar. The things that they have said. Are pretty incredible Keith Ellison became deputy, chairman of the DNC's now attorney general of Minnesota. The things that Jimmy Carter has said about Israel, the things that John Kerry said in a speech, he gave I believe it was twenty twenty five days before leaving office. Just eviscerating the Jewish state and Netanyahu the efforts by Obama to interfere in the elections in Israel. And his treatment of Netanyahu in the United States. And his final act, directing John Kerry. To vote against Israel in the United Nations. Which the and the Wiesenthal Center was said was the greatest act of anti-semitism of that year. We can see this in Pew Research polls, the attitudes towards Israel versus Palestinians. Seventy nine percent Republicans say they sympathize more with Israel than the Palestinians compare with just twenty seven percent of Democrats. Now. Hugh looked at this in the party's progressive wing. And the share of Liberal Democrats who sympathize more with Israel than Palestinians has declined from thirty three percent. The nineteen percent since two thousand sixteen currently nearly twice as many Liberal Democrats say they sympathize more with the Palestinians than with Israel thirty five to nineteen percent. The Palestinian Authority and HAMAs do not embrace our values and our principles. They're both terrorist organizations. How masters is considered a terrorist organization by our own government? And the democrat party more and more is the place where these ties Semites, go. And I've read argue that these congresswomen are exactly what I say. They are anti-semites. I've been calling them out for weeks. I called out Keith Ellison on day one. The Democrats elected him as their deputy, chairman of the DNC. And there's this growing movement within the democrat party. Democrat candidate after democrat candidate without Sharpton. I know he tries to. Rewrite has passed. But it's all there for everybody to read and some of us actually lived it. Louis Farrakhan, they hit a picture. They hit a picture of Farrakhan with Obama for years. Obama's closest friends are among his closest friend. When he was a grown adult. Bernardine Dohrn Bill Ayers. Radical hard leftists.

With obama. Now, why am I bringing all this up because I keep bringing all this up? Some people are trying to catch on now starting to catch on some radio hosts are starting to catch on a few others. But you would think while they're having this vote on Steve king? I don't socialize with Steve king. I don't talk to Steve king. What's he been on this program? Once maybe Mr. Beduso? I have no idea. Some no special pleader for him or any member of congress. Let the chips fall where they may. But why is it? That there is this vote fine. But not another vote. Not another resolution coming out of the house of representatives. I think it's important that they reject racism. Why aren't they rejecting anti-semitism? Growing anti-semitism within the democrat party within the progressive movement on our college campuses. From your typical liberal Democrat to your radical democratic socialist. Our immigration policies invite more and more people into this country. Look, I'm laying it out. Who are of this mindset? We're not allowed to talk about it. And it's in our face. There was a book written by professor Stephen Norwood. So brilliant, man. Called anti-semitism and the American far left. We know all about the outright. And the fascists. And that's bad enough. It's horrific. But what about the socialists, what about the communists? What about the new left? What about the modern democratic socialists? Alexandria cossio. Cortes has said many. Outrageous things on this subject. She's never pressed on it. We're told you better watch out she's really appealing to millennials. With all the media coverage. She is received. She's never been pressed on this Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders is quick to issue press releases and condemnation. When the Jewish state is trying to protect itself against the HAMAs terrorists among others. Because Bernie Sanders is a Marxist. And that's what they believe Karl Marx himself born a Jew. Was a self hating Jew on an anti Semite and there many of them. How many times have I gotten behind this microphone and talked about the New York Times? Now, little chattering class and the media. They kind of pick up on this stuff. And that's good. Be nice. If they from time to time did some original thinking and research, but they're incapable of it. I get it. Shows burger. In the thirties and forties. It you. Jewish. Was also a progressive. And he wasn't the only one. To conceal what was taking place in Europe. Was it? The only one there are many. In the United States Senate today there are several. Who voted with Obama on the Iran deal? The government of Israel told us, this is an existential threat, you're going to be effectively allowing Iran, which is slaughtering American soldiers which backs Hezbollah which in one thousand nine hundred three blow up that marine barracks. And almost two hundred of our fellow Americans. Who's responsible for the slaughter of more of our soldiers in Iraq than anybody else? A terrorist organization. Backing Hezbollah as its militia wing. And despite their objections, and despite the obvious threat it poses for us. Can you imagine ICBM's would nuclear warheads with these throwbacks threatening Los Angeles and San Francisco, then Chicago, Detroit, ultimately, New York and Washington. Mail us. Can you imagine? And yet. The prior administration lie through its teeth about the Iran deal. Lied to the American people. Remember that Ben Rhodes piece proud of how they manipulated the media. Proud. And then. On the way out the door. On the way out the door. John Carey delivers. An unbelievably hateful. Hateful speech. Against the state of Israel. But none of them have to worry on the left. None of them have to wearing the democrat party because they know they'll never be a resolution. They'll never be a censor- censorship vote. They'll never be a condemnation nothing not even from the Republican leadership. Not even from the Republican leadership. Nothing. Where are all the voices? Look at the democrat party. Jimmy carter. Jimmy carter. Has Jewish problem? He wrote a book, I think it was around two thousand seven I'm doing this from memory. But I read it Palestine peace not apartheid. Absolutely..

Other has been a lot of talk about Steve king people have jumped out he should resign. He should be sanctioned. He should be tarred and feathered he should be hanged from telephone poles. Honestly, I'm trying to get to the bottom of this. I read what he said in the New York Times and how they excerpt it I heard what Kevin McCarthy had to say. I looked at Steve king's response. This is really a stupid statement. Very stupid. He says look that's not the context in which I discussed this. I would encourage the New York Times to release the recording. So we can get a full transcript of everything that was said. I don't know why Steve king talks way. Maybe he's in articulate. I don't believe he's a clansman dressed up as a congressman. He is that's been news to the people of Iowa for eighteen years and news to the Republican party for eighteen years. I make no excuses. I've been targeted by Neo Nazis and Klansmen we've had to have.

And if I believe in know for sure that this is where Steve king is coming from. Then I'll join the ranks of all the others. But here's the thing. That does bother me. Make no excuses for him. But here's the thing. That does bother me. I've been talking about rising anti-semitism within the democrat party in the Obama administration. In much of what Jimmy Carter says. Keith ellison. Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, these two new congresswoman once a Palestinian, they're both Muslims. Rashida totally an alien, Omar. The things that they have set. Are pretty incredible Keith Ellison became deputy, chairman of the DNC's now attorney general in Minnesota. The things that Jimmy Carter has said about Israel, the things that John Kerry said in a speech, he gave I believe it was twenty twenty five days before leaving office. Just eviscerating the Jewish state and Netanyahu the efforts by Obama. To interfere in the elections in Israel. And his treatment of Netanyahu in the United States. And his final act, directing John Kerry. To vote against Israel in the United Nations, which the wise in the Wiesenthal Center was said was the greatest act of anti-semitism of that year.

"From five fifteen. Representative Steve king was censored today, but did the Republicans cut off the nose despite their face. Too. This is a crazy world that we're in right now in this because there's too much political correctness. It's a crazy world that we're in right now. Because quite frankly, we have too many people who have left us ideology that are calling the shots. Today, Representative king was censored was removed from all of his committee assignments because he said something that many people have branded as racist. He said, you know, when did white supremacy. And nationalism. Wh when did that become a bad thing to me? This sounds like a question. May be misguided question. But a question No one has bothered to answer. What they've chosen to do is condemn him belt on the left and the right. We have bipartisanship here in Washington DC where we have left. These who have come together with Democrats say who have come together with Republicans to can damn. A Republican member we have senators now who are willing to cross the aisle and and dump on congressman. It's it's. It's crazy. What it is is the wrap around smear. Here's what Sears was amazing to me Nancy Pelosi and all of her brazenness. Can come out and tell you exactly how the game is played. And then you get a wonderful example of that. And you gotta you gotta you gotta gotta scratch your head. If she's telling me she's projecting. Why are the Republicans walking right into it? Why are they playing along at their own expense? Nancy pelosi. And then you we call it the wrap-up smear. You talk politics called the wrap up smear. You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest, and then you merchandise it. And then you write it enough as reported in the press that this this this and this so they have that validation that the press reported the smear and it's called the ramp up smear. Now, I'm gonna merchandise. The press is report on smear that we made at it's it's a tactic itself. Ed, I keep saying wrap around it's the wrap up smear tactic, and it is self evident. And it was on full display today. Now, usually is the left it'll tell a lie about a Republican like Trump colluded with the Russians and then the millimeter will run with that. But sometimes Republicans say stupid stuff. Steve king said some stupid stuff. Well, now, you take that you get it to the meeting you start to attack them here is Representative Liz Cheney, and as we as you played this for you. Listen to the question that the reporter s this is exactly what Nancy Pelosi was talking about. We took this. We caught a racism. We gave it to the media. The media wrote their articles on and now the to the Republicans and they say. I I agree with leader McConnell. Actually, I think you should find another line of work. Is there a place where where where Steve king can go? And the Republican. Yeah, I agree with Mitch McConnell who's over there at the Senate. He needs to look for another line of work. The correct answer to that question. Well, you know that depends on his constituents that could that depends on the good people of Iowa. Let's see Liz Cheney didn't do that. Did she know she got caught in the wrap-up smear playing the role? Didn't you got Senator Mitt Romney? Thank you. There's a room for Steve. King's comments in polite company, or in the Republican party or for that matter in congress. I think you had to step aside. And I think congress ought to make it very clear he has no place there. And then, you know, if you have an opportunity to all my goodness, go to the black Republican who's part of the establishment and see what he has to say about it. But Major's congratulate and thank my Republican leaders, folks. Like Kevin McCarthy Joni earns Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush, Jason Schafer's who've all spoken out loud and clear and rebuke the comments of Steve king. I think the house will handle its business. I have confidence that Kevin McCarthy. We'll do the right thing, and we'll do very quickly. So I look forward to that outcome. But I don't again Senator a Senator over there in the Senate attempt. Scott had more comments about the accident. Republicans a day. And what king said for me? It's not about the Republican party. Steve king's comments or? Analytical to what is in fact, the American dream the durability of the American dream is the strength of the American spirit. And what he did was he struck against the Americans. So you weaken the spirit, and when that happens our nation is less competitive globally. So I'm talking about is how do we build a better country? So that the kids in high school and college today have real expectations that their futures will be brighter and better because of our leadership in this generation that is our responsibility to do our parents and our grandparents did for us. Okay. That was nonsensical started. Okay. But then it just went all off into. Better America kids what because of what? Because of the question that Representative king asked our kids are not going to have a better America. Of course, this whole thing came up on today. And this is this is this is what I'm talking about. This is why it is absolutely wrong for Republicans just to apologize and to back down. The again, the correct answer would be, you know, what Representative king disagree with the questions that he asked, but as far as whether or not he's that is up to the good people of of w-we, they didn't do that. Now, you've got the the the pundits on television. Even on the view calling for king to be ousted. Here's Sunday halston and a mega McCain think the Republican party has had a lot of difficulty getting the black vote getting the minority vote in large part because there is this feeling like there's a lot of racism in Republican party or that there's this feeling that there's a lot of racism and Republican party, actually what there is is propaganda. That has been pushed by the Democrats and had been pushed by the media. And that is why people feel the way they do sunny. There's a lot of racism in publican party, or they haven't addressed a lot of black knees workloads. It actually happens. The party is. Meghan, McCain bussing on Barry Goldwater, a Senator Zona saying because he didn't believe in the Civil Rights Act as if that we're racist. Barry Goldwater didn't believe in the Civil Rights Act because they had nothing to do with race is. It was constitutional a lot of people have a problem with you'll point back to the civil rights era, and the civil rights legislation that opened the door to all this other mess. We had two tiered systems. We got affirmative action because of these civil rights legislation, and I think in a in a large degree of the trouble. Barry Goldwater was right. See we're not talking about the constitutionality of this here. No, we're not look how the daughter of Arizona breaks bad on a Arizona icon. Megan McCain party of link want to say one thing would allow it's all about maybe change. I condemn him. He is a racist. And he's bad for the party. Yeah. It's not hard. Seems to be very complicated for some people. There's no place for him anywhere in politics. Romney announced. List of a list of people. But I'm just saying more people should come out. He should be. He should step down. I don't have patience for this. I don't think anybody has any way. I would like us to move forward and pass things that I thought were done in the sixties. Apparently, they are not he's a bad, dude. Should he should he be sent anything to get him? How congress I don't really care. So much more. Freezes so much emotion. Oh such language and dumping a Republican that you have branded to be a racist. You who weren't around in nineteen sixties or seventies. We're just told about it. And you know, you're great pundit. But when you get on this moral high horses start your virtuous, signaling is just makes me wanna just vomit. Meanwhile, we have freshmen congress people who can go out in associated with anti semitic groups and drop f bombs on the president. And I don't see any kind of passion. Out of any Republican pundits calling for them to be censored. It's asinine..
"steve king" Discussed on The Majority Report with Sam Seder
"Like, here's a tip for all of you congressional staffers who listened to the program watched the show if you're going to videotape your boss and put it on the web. There's you have two options. One is you either cut out the part where you go three two one or you use your fingers. See that's why I mean, if you were counting down from let's say thirty six this would be uncomfortable. But you're doing three two. One. I alwa- needs Steve king in congress. I also need Steve king in congress. I feel like I do a good job of representing islands. And so often I have found Steve king to be such an ally an ally that I need in the other body called the house representatives. He's worked with so many things that are important to Iowa agricultural issues. The farm bail alternative energy things that are very important Iowa like wind energy, particularly oh, an ethanol and biodiesel as well without his help in the house representatives. I awoke right. Goes on and on. We don't need. Energy. Protecting white babies what? Now they start. They the Kevin McCarthy Steve McCarthy as we like to call them has said that king will not be sitting on any will not get any committee appointments. The the big deal for this is right there in Grassley comments because king will no longer be on the agriculture committee, which means that he will no longer be able to offer all sorts of benny's for for ions in big Ag there. And so this is going to he's going to if he's not reinstated. And I don't think he will be he will lose in a Republican primary, and he's already got I think a couple of weeks ago. Some some local Biwa Republican announced he was going to take them on. And it was all like. You know, this is tasteless. But like, it's a distraction. It's embarrassing. And now, you got the you know, now there's the meat to fill it in. Right. He'll be and he'll must have been really a big surprise for all these Republicans to find out that Steve king was such a jerk. It's shocking. It's a shame. They couldn't have found that out before the election, and it could have worked with us to get him out of office. Yeah. But you know, the the information comes fast, I'm Serb Steve king will like, you know, make a nice living like addressing like European fascist soccer club stuff like. Daily is already started to build his set. I think but the this. Here's the interesting part. There's a lot of people are probably wondering why now, and it is because the Democrats have the ability to control the agenda in the house and. That makes Steve king more of a liability than he was two months ago. And they had the ability to vote to censure him which would have kept it in the news, and the Republicans thought, okay, this is this the definition of this guy taken one for the team. And it also gives us an opportunity to talk about proceeded to leave in the fact that the Democrats won't censure her for saying MO photo. But also, she said that Arab civilization can't be saved with gypsy babies. That's and that because we created fucking algebra was I believe the direct quote and just because she thinks that the Arabs are particularly blessed by Allah doesn't mean that she thinks allies other creations aren't valid, but just inferior. So I think we need to be really fair here about what she actually said. I love my row sheet. It's lip sausages Jimmy door, right? Exactly. We created Falkland algebraic. I mean, it's basically look they are in a the the they are on the back of their heels because they're getting blamed for the shutdown. They did not want the twin sort of like recommendations of being coddling to a racist. And also denying basic services to Americans think bottling. Bottling racist and cuddling to a racist. It takes two to Tango. That's right. Temp. Forget. We look we're all implicated in this too. Because we all heard what Stephen King said. And if we hadn't heard what he said, then would he have said it? On your own hand. Steve king of saying absolutely racist things on the other hand, we're a lot of Djelic rats or hearing what he's saying. So there's a lot of both sides of this, Kathy. You just just briefly..

"Okay. So I want to get back to the Steve king issue for a second. Because I see now online that folks on the left are making a couple of claims about the. Steve king issue. Claim number one is that because Steve king has now demonstrated that he is fully in scottsd- in racism using terms like white, nationalist and white supremacy in positive fashion. This means that all of his political priorities over the last twenty years in congress. I've been smeared with this. This is stupid. Okay. Just logically idiotic. There are a lot of bad people who believe a lot of good things. Hey, the left says this all the time, by the way about their their own deplorables. And they'll say this about Louis Farrakhan, and his perspective on the criminal Justice system, for example. And you can in fact, separate the views some views from other views. So I'm seeing folks like Chris Hayes tweet out that Steve king supported a wall in two thousand six. Yes. So what Hitler had a dog? Like, what difference does that make the that you have to hold the same views on race that Steve king apparently holds in order to believe that the United States should have more border security is asinine. That's not true in the slightest as just a smear tactic. You're gonna see that a lot this week. You're going to see a lot of people suggesting that you must be a member of the KKK. If in fact, you want stronger border security, that's a way of Democrats invading the question on the policy itself. So that's claim number one that to be debunked. Right out of the gate. It is just nasty and asinine is. They're saying Steve king wanted to make English the official language of the United States. Yes. So what? So what why exactly does that mean that that's a bad idea? Steve king might be a person who believes bad things. But there are a lot of good reasons why you might think for example that people in the United States should speak English that have nothing to do with racism. They have much more to do with assimilation. And the ability for us to talk with one another in common parlance, not the inherent superiority of the English language, but we have to have something we can do together, including talk again, this is a it's a smear tactic. Okay. Sner tackling number two. And this one really bugs the hell out of me. So today there's evidence on king. So I come out, and I say never should have supported king in the first place or worship have provided any level of defense for king in the first place. And that was a mistake and Steve king should be kicked out of congress support his primary opponent and a bunch of people come back, and they say look at these Republicans constantly attempting to clean house. You know, it's because they're so dirty because they're constantly cleaning house to which I say, right? We are constantly cleaning house in the Republican party in the conservative movement or constantly looking at people who do bad things and saying you need to get out. When's the last time a democrat did anything bad enough that didn't involve actual criminal activity that they got kicked out? What is the last time has it ever happened has there ever been a democrat too radical for the Democratic Party has there ever been a Democrats who racist for the Democratic Party? No, of course, not. But I love this metric while you're taking people out all the time that shows there are lots of people who need to be kicked out. This is the equivalent of you saying that your house is cleaner than mine because I clean my house once a week. So I clean my house. Once a week that means that it gets dirty. Least once a week. You however, have never cleaned your house in your entire life. You've never cleaned your house. That means that your house has never been dirty or alternate means that you're half the pile of garbage because you've never cleaned it ever. If we are actually working on honestly assessing the merits of our own movement and kicking people out don't belong in that movement. There should be some credit that goes along with that. And the Democratic Party that is now claiming that the Republicans don't do enough to cleanse themselves of the bad actors are currently bracing to meek Mallory Rashida to live L Han, Omar. It's just it's insane. It's insane. In just a second. I want to get to the latest extremism by folks on the far social left. I I want to remind you that you really ought to go.

"But then they themselves, but what about the fact that I'm losing money hand over fist, and that or this global economy is coming to hell what what does that you know, in that Trump's tariffs. And what about you know, people who are religious might be saying that we don't like the idea from putting children in in cages away from their parents. So there are a bunch of things in rural districts that are making people think twice. I'm sure you've heard you probably talk about on the show about how one of the biggest farming district in the country that was was very much a Trump district. I awoke four. Steve kings district is now on the verge of flipping blew us can ask you about restroom democrat democrat. So the d triple c had no interest in helping him. None. They haven't given him a single penny. They are ignoring it. When when contributor is big pun contributors called the d triple c tells them don't give him any money, you're wasting it. So they've done everything they can to even read Noar or undermine JD's campaign. So this is a campaign that is just grassroots campaign JD, what himself a van kind of a bus painted his name on it and started going from county to county in this gigantic spoiling district that goes, you know, I mean, it's be I think the district is was big as the rest of Iowa combined. It's just and he's visited little towns have said they've never seen. Anybody running for congress before not not not the incumbent? And not anyone challenge them amazing. He's just he's just never stops. Every time I call this guy for over year. Every single time. He's on the road somewhere. He's always driving. I mean, I could reach him 'cause he's driving. And and now the last poll showed him within one point of Steve how and Steve king is under fire for his white nationalist ways is his his anti drinks enough. There you go. That's that's the way to put plainly. I mean, I mean he is. I mean, I don't want to call people not not. Went to Austria several times and sat down with each time set down with the head of the so-called Freedom Party, which is a Nazi party, the Freedom Party was founded by a SS officer someone from you know, a Hitler gone. And he's he, you know, they're not going to call the new Nazi party of the Nazi party. You can't to legal. So they they called it the Freedom Party. So Steve Steve king goes there, and he's cavorting with them over and over and over again go I don't know what they're talking about. But he keeps going and when he got cold out on it last week on CNN, he says if they were in the United States, they would just be in the United States talking about what they're talking about in Austria. They would be Republicans and staff right when yes, they would be but. Right now. But they don't all want to admit that. And so now there are calls for for even you know, Republican leadership to denounce him and say it's time for him to go. Right. But they won't. Instead, you get you do have some Republicans who are very very nervous Republicans in congress like Carlos Corbelli oh in Miami. Who who's on who's got his own problems, and he came out, and he said publicly on NBC, I wou I would not this is what he said, exactly. I would not vote for anyone like Steve king key word. Why I would not vote for anyone like Steve king? Well, he didn't have the vote for Steve king. He's in Florida. That's right. He's in Iowa. But how about someone like Steve king? He said he used the word like who's like Steve king, Rhonda Santos's, like Stevie senators. And and so is I wish someone from the media in Florida would ask his co Bella with he's for Ragas Sanchez. That's a good question. You enough to say you're not voting to Steve king right halfway across the country. That's that's a really good point. So so there's a chance Steve king could lose. I didn't realize the polls were that tight..

"Now, speaking of extreme right wing. We go to Steve king. He's in the news again. Okay. So. Steve king can't stop getting himself in trouble. But he doesn't think he's in trouble. He thinks is in everybody a white supremacist. So now, he thinking, hey, white supremacist guys, a member of congress seems a little heavy you sure about that jank. Yeah, I'm positive so that I can prove it to. So he recently met with members of a far-right Austrian group with links to the Nazi party. So that happened. Now meeting with them in the first place is deeply problematic. But for the first time Steve king was perhaps accidentally, right? And he said if they weren't America pushing the platform that they push they would be Republicans. Well, that is certainly true that party is very right wing and right wing this country are Republicans, and they have elected officials representing them in the United States Congress like Steve king. So yes, indeed. If the Nazi linked party came here, they would be Republicans for the first time I agree with Steve king Steve stivers who is represented Republicans in the house in the election season. Did not like that comment. Not be I don't know his personal opinions. He's in the Republican party. So I imagine they're not great. But he at least recognizes not a good way to win elections. Now. See king might think. Hey, the whole country is. Racist like me, right. That's how I don't know that Republicans winning elections for decades. The southern strategy. We ran against black people in the beginning. Then against gay people running Latinos now in trans people we scare the hell out of him. We do racist bigoted strategy. I don't get it. What's what's the problem? Right. Well, countries changed and apparently stivers understands that and he said quote congress. This again is the Republican congressman Steve king's recent comments, actions and re tweets are completely inappropriate. We must stand up against white supremacy and hate all forms, and I strongly condemn this behaviour. Now, look, I think that the Republican party thinks, hey, Steve you're supposed to use a dog whistle. Not your actual human voice. You're not supposed to actually say Nazis. We're supposed to say English as a second language or as a first language. The only language which was use code words. In fact, that is part of this story that we don't have time for, but I will share that with you. Tomorrow's post game. About how Steve king started using dog whistles and the history of those dog whistles, and then how switched over to just simply saying racist things. So TY dot com slash join to become a member and get all the post games only the members get the post games. Okay. Now, let's continue. Now, here's some of the things that he also did recently I represented Steve king on Wednesday. This was a couple of weeks ago endorse a candidate in Toronto's mayor election who was fired by an all right media outlet after she appeared on a podcast produced by Neo Nazi website. I feel like I see a pattern here. She was fired by the alt-right for being too pro Nazi? Okay. And king Johnson. He tweeted on Wednesday his support for this person. Faith, Cole Goldie a former employee of rebel media and a candidate in Toronto's upcoming mayoral election by calling Goldie, quote, pro western civilization and a fighter for our values. Well, that's pretty clear, by the way, if you're wondering, well, how Neo Nazi issue Goldie was fired last year by rebel media after she appeared on a podcast for the daily Stormer the world's biggest Neo Nazi website during which she recited the fourteen word slogan. Often uses an identifier by white supremacists. Okay. But Steve kings not done yet. And now have a little fun by going to his past. In two thousand eight king said that if Barack Hussein Obama won the presidency, the radical Islamist Al Qaeda would be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September eleventh because they would declare victory in this war on terror..

"Republican congressman Steve king was the Donald Trump of anti-immigrant bigotry and white supremacy long before Donald Trump became a politician. Steve king has been condemned over and over again by Democrats in Washington and around the country and today, finally finally Steve king has been condemned by the Republicans at the same time that a new poll reveals the Steve king might be on the verge of losing the congressional seat that he was reelected to two years ago with a twenty three point winning margin. Republican Carson Steve king who has been assigned. Not Steve king who stivers Republican women stivers who's been assigned the job by Paul Ryan of helping to re elect Republican congress. Finally, condemned something that congressman king said Carson stivers. Who is the chairman of the Republican congressional campaign committee said this Carson, Steve king's recent comments, actions and re tweets are. Completely inappropriate. We must stand up against white supremacy and hate in all forms, and I strongly condemn this behaviour. Now here is what did it after a trip to Austria? Steve king said that Austria's Freedom Party, which was founded by a nuts in is the twenty first century addition of the Nazi party. Steve king said this about that. He said if they were in America pushing the platform that they push they would be Republicans. And of course, the biggest problem for Republicans with what Steve king said there is that it is true in the two party system here in the United States, if an Austrian Nazi has to choose one. There is no question that that choice would be the Trump party the Republican congressional campaign committee might feel free to condemn Steve king now because they might believe that he is on his way to losing. Anyway, a new poll shows him in a statistical tie with his democratic. Challenger J D Shelton. And that is in a district as I said, we're Steve king one by twenty three points just two years ago. Joining our discussion now democratic congressman Eric swallow, a member of the house, intelligence and judiciary committee's since. While will is a native of Iowa. Now represents a California district has done extensive work campaigning on behalf of kings opponent, J D shoulder and David jolly is with us a former Republican congressman from Florida Carson swallow. Well, the Republicans finally have decided that Steve king is hurting them. And they have to say so. I welcome that and good evening Lawrence. And it shows that they have a red line for the last year and a half many of us have been wondering what's the red line? When will the Republicans speak up and say, this is not what we stand for. So now the question, I guess is will they also condemned the person who talks just like Steve king, and that's the president of the United States. Donald trump. I know that district. Well, I was born in that district. My dad was a chief of police and Al gonna Iowa my parents are Republicans, and we grew up around a lot of Republicans and Republicans in that district. Don't believe in what Steve king is a spouse, and I've had the privilege of riding around that district with JD Shelton and his Sioux City, sue campaign RV, and what people in that district are talking about is healthcare in Lawrence. So many times we'd go to a Casey's general store and you'd see a collection jar at the store for people pooling money together for somebody who has a healthcare condition or suffered a medical accident. And that's what's top of mind better. Not these culture. Awards that Steve king is peddling. David Joey would the Republican camp congressional campaign committee be giving up on Steve king condemning him? If he were ten points ahead in the polls. Well, either way I think you're seeing them distance themselves from Steve king, and it may not be a written rule in politics. But if you having to condemn white supremacy, you're losing the debate. And we know that look the reality is this is a member of congress who has suggested that civilization needed to be restored. And it couldn't be restored with other cultures babies..
