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.

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

"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. ABC's John behove 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 quote pattern of despicable comments. Chief king is from Iowa he's super conservative, and what are the areas where he gets the most fired up is immigration. We also electrify this this wire with the kind of current they wouldn't kill somebody. But it would simply be a discouragement for them to be fooling around with it. And 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 there were joined by Republicans who decided to do something even more damaging ABC's, John for Hobart covers congress, and so John how did we get here? Like what king actually say? Well, Brad, it's important to note that this is this is a man Steve king congressman who is well known for saying a lot of controversial things for everyone who's a Tori, and there's another hundred out there that. May one hundred and thirty pounds, and they've got calves the sides 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? Right. 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 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 it 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 could censor of a kick him out of congress. So is this really at a tipping point or are Republicans still sort of in wait and see mode? Right. I mean, there definitely was a growing chorus of a lot of high profile Republicans that came out and commented on this. You had Senator Mitt Romney. He said was reprehensible and other lead to his resignation from the Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell also issued a very strongly worded statement. But the way that you know, that this is a big deal is something that Kevin McCarthy said which is we're not going to go as far as the kick Steve king out of congress. But that's up for the voters of Iowa to decide, and that's actually a big deal the cycle because king has a significant primary challenger already in state Senator Randy seen strat who has already announced that he's going to try and primary king, and that could be really really really big deal come to come next year. Yeah. For one of these very very visible members of congress to be told by everyone else in the caucus. We we'd rather people vote for somebody else. Jon Mahovlich in Washington. Hey, thanks a lot.

"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..

"He goes on does congressman came. There's an interesting. Kind of phrasing. There. Did he say it the way the New York Times put it now? Steve Cain has a history. And sometimes you're history is what does win. But if indeed we as a society are going to say Steve king. You are not good enough. Steve king you have to go. We can't have someone like you. As part of. The United States house of representatives. If that is the case. Then the same has to hold true for congressman Rasheed sleep. Because congressman to lead. Based on what we are using as our guidelines. This is applied to congressman king. Is equally guilty and must also if Steve king is to be expelled. She needs to be expelled the democrat from Michigan. By the way. Even if Steve king isn't expelled. Let us go through this. It was it comes from twitchy AG underscore conservative. I don't know who that is personally. Maybe I do know him. I don't realize it. But it's great. They did a fantastic job of breaking down. She sleep. Who is a big surround yourself with bigots. I count come at me. What do you want from me here allow me to prove to you? Why say this? This is the same sheet asleep. Congressman to leap who during the primary said that she supported two state solution. She has described herself as a Palestinian in American. I don't even know she says Palestinian American not sure how she doesn't. She said. She wanted a two-state solution, which would mean a home for Israel and a home for the Palestinians after the primary. She said she only supported a one state solution. Jay street. The highly progressive leftist group Jewish group one that I have been at odds with many times. Called out many times, they withdrew their support for her. After she was elected a map on the wall. She took a post it note wrote Palestine on it with an arrow and covered Israel. Again, playing to the idea that Israel doesn't exist or shouldn't exist. A very disgusting..

"It was a strange day of unity in the house of representatives. The likes of which we have not seen during the Trump era in Washington. The house of representatives finally United on something in a stunning bipartisan vote of four hundred twenty four to one the house of representatives voted to condemn the language Republican carbon Steve king used in the New York Times interview about white supremacy and the vote against that resolution that the one vote against it was not from Steve king the one vote against that resolution was from congressman Bobby rush. Who said he thought the resolution went too easy on Steve king, and he proposed that the house vote to censure formerly censure Steve king Steve king, obviously knows he is now fighting for his survival in the house of representatives. And so Steve king actually voted against Steve king today. I want to ask my colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Let's vote for this resolution. I'm putting up. Yes. On the board here because what you stay here is right? And it's true. And it's just. Before that mass of show massive show of unity in the house of representatives. President Trump tried to divide and conquer the Democrats in the house of representatives. And once again, he discovered just completely unified the Democrats are in their resistance to Donald Trump and the Trump wall, Donald Trump bypass, the democratic congressional leadership and invited at least six democratic house. Members from swing districts to the White House along with about nine Republican members of the house for what the president hoped would be a bipartisan looking meeting that he could televise to show that he was reaching out to the other side and trying to solve the shutdown but all six of the Democrats, including Abigail spam. Burger who has a freshman has never been in a governing meeting in the White House turned down the invitation from the president and stood solidly behind Nancy Pelosi's simple, negotiating position on the Trump wall. Which of course is just. Saying no to Donald Trump, everyone in the Senate now knows that what started as the Trump shutdown is now the Mitch McConnell shut down because majority leader Mitch McConnell could bring any of the house spending bills that have been passed to vote in the Senate and they would pass the Senate Montana. Senator John tester is outraged by the senate's refusal to act in the shutdown. Back taken oath of office to protect this country. I and we're turning our back on this country. We can continue to have the debate about the best way to secure the border. But it should not be done holding the American people hostage. We've got a lot of work to do. And that works starts with opening the government. Of the United States..

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. Part of that same hardcore Marxist leftist movement that despises the state of Israel. And then you have of course, Khalidi professor Khalidi with his ties to HAMAs against our previously. Again. 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..

"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..

"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..

Just listen to the lead story on the Steve king removal from committee assignments from the New York Times House Republican leaders removed Representative Steve king of Iowa from the judiciary and agriculture committees on Monday night, as party officials scrambled to appear tough on racism and contain damage from comments Mr. king made to the New York Times questioning why white supremacy is considered offensive. You see for the New York Times in the lead paragraph. It's judgment call. They scrambled to appear tough on racism. They're not really tough on racism. They actually like racists, and they are racist themselves and contain damage. They don't really care about what he said. They're just worried about the damage and yes. Is being used as a bludgeon against all Republicans. You're seeing this form already. You saw it for as soon as king made those unbelievably imbecilic comments. This is the strategy that the left and its allies in the media, the Democratic Party in the democrat controlled media have been using against Republicans since time immemorial, they take one extreme example of a horrible horrid Republican and use that brush broadly to paint every single Republican. Now, every Republican we'll have a microphone in his face. Just like Mitt Romney and be asked to denounce Steve king. Do you agree with what he said, sir? Never mind. The fact that there is but avowed antisemitic black supremacist racist that democratic congressmen and women have been bowing at the altar of for decades coincidentally enough yesterday to meek Mallory the co founder of the women's March was on the view, she was asked by co host sunny halston about her controversial comments calling Louis Farrakhan, the greatest of all time and call him the greatest of all time because of his rhetoric I called in the greatest of all time because of what he's done in black communities. Oh, okay. You see you can separate a liberal racist and anti Semite from his rhetoric. I don't agree with that. But look is done some great things also this week. There is a simmering controversy surrounding one of the newest members of congress Rashida to live of Michigan. She of course, was the one who said at a daily coast function the night. She was sworn into office. We're going to impeach the swear word referring to Trump what some eagle-eyed reporters noted was on a map into leaves office. Over the state of Israel. Was a post it note that said Palestine. Seeming to indicate that congresswoman to live would like to see Palestine, right where Israel is sitting. Now, I seem to recall a CNN commentator named Marc Lamont hill getting in a bit of trouble for saying that he wanted a free Palestine from the river to the sea. But that was an all for mister live on Twitter. She re tweeted Bernie Sanders. Chastising Republican senators for antibeach legislation that they had proposed to leave said they forget what country they're loyal to. Now. This may not sound like a deeply offensive thing. But any Jewish person listening to that? Or anyone familiar with antisemitic language will know that the charge of dual loyalty is one of the more deeply antisemitic things that you can say that the idea here is that you're not actually loyal to America. You're loyal to Israel. You're loyal to your tribe. Your only loyal to Jewish people conspiring against the rest of it's incredibly antisemitic and its credit incredibly offensive. So what we're talking about? Steve king and Republicans. Yes are doing the right thing on Steve king. Let's not forget that there have been democrat congressman after democrat congressman who have met with Louis Farrakhan. Now, how exactly remember the picture of Obama smiling with Louis Farrakhan during a meeting that picture was kept secret for a decade for Obama's entire political career had it been released while he was running for president that very well may have sank his chances, but Louis Farrakhan as in the case of Topeka Mallory is never actually fully denounced. Well, his rhetoric is terrible. But you know, what some of his ideas are pretty darned. Okay. Now, could you imagine if Steve king or any Republican for that matter was meeting in the halls at the capital with David Duke because ladies and gentlemen, as the left is getting so incensed in so outrage over supposedly virulent racism running rampant through the Republican party. Why are there no calls ever for Democrats to distance themselves from Louis Farrakhan because we put together? Montage, ladies and gentlemen of Louis Farrakhan, sounding exactly like David Duke, say ten Jews..

"Some of it simply innocuous some of it unpolished. However, his latest offence of not having a filter. The social situations and somebody doesn't have a filter. They say anything that comes to mind. It's impulse control. They're kind of lacking an impulse control the lacking in being able to read the room as it were. But he said to the New York Times in an interview. And I do not have the entire context. Mr. king says this was taken out of context, but it's hard for me. To wrap my brain around him, not understanding that white supremacy is not going to be viewed in our culture today as offensive now. I do think it's that we've you western civilization are old dead white guys as offensive. To me that's not offensive at all western civilization is not offensive. It's not a trigger. Turn the same goes for nationalism. Whether or not black nationalism are white nationalism or Hispanic nationalism has a different coloration to it a different overtone to it. That's something that you know, you can argue right after you solve how many angels fit on the head of a pin. However King knows this stuff. He's been around for a while. He's a long history in public service. He by the way, after these comments, he rejects, those labels and the evil ideology. This is a quote and evil audiology that they define it could be he was simply asking intellectual question. The Socratic method examined these terms how. And when did these terms become offensive? Why is it that white nationalism or white supremacy is viewed as offensive well, there are rational reasons to discuss why their offensive and that could be done if what he was doing was trying in some fashion. To apply the rules of debate the rules of inquiry. He knows better to be blunt McCarthy who's the house minority leader. Kevin McCarthy had he's serious conversation with Steve king on his future and role in the GOP. And I believe today they actually officially vote on removing him from any committee assignments for this particular congress. And there are a far number a great number of Republicans who've come out and condemned what he had to say matter of fact, Kim, Scott is a black South Carolina Republican. Saying similar party wonder where Republicans are constantly accused of racism is because our silence when things like this are said king's comments or not conservative us, but separate views it should be ridiculed at every possible. Turn conservative principles mean equal opportunity for all to succeed, regardless of what you look like or where you're from. It's maddening to see so many folks who believe this and heavily good intentions in their hearts. Tarnished by these radical perspectives. That is why silence is no longer acceptable. I agree with us. I agree with understanding white supremacy. It belongs on democrat party to be blunt. It belongs the party of of sheets bird. Now, the former grand of the KKK who is a much lauded Senator from West Virginia for a number of decades. This is where it belongs does not belong in the Republican party. I do think it's a fair question to ask. Would we not be? Willing to view terms like the Congressional Black caucus. Is that racist is that offensive? Would it be offensive? It was the congressional white caucus. My bet is that would indeed viewed as offensive. I don't know. Why one isn't one is not? But I do know that that's the zeitgeist of the day. That's the culture right now. Jason shave its former Utah Republican also wrote an op Ed rebuking in you said there are too many offensive statements for any one of them to qualify. As a simple gaffe, and Steve king has this history at the same time. He's a bright guy. I think he's a nice guy. I have no idea what's in his heart. And he said, he rejects those labels and the evil ideology that they define. It could just be he he phrased an in artful statement. There are those on both sides of the aisle, though, we're calling for substantially more action against Steve king. Then is currently being proposed Conway's..

"Discourse, we discussed the worn out label, quote racist, and my observation that other slanderous labels have been increasingly assigned to conservatives by the left who injected into our current political dialogue such terms as Nazi fascist white nationalist white supremacist western civilization. How that language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization just to watch western civilization. Become a derogatory term in political discourse today clear. Really, I was only referencing western civilization classes, no one ever sat in a class listening to the merits of white nationalism and white supremacy. When I use the word that it was in reference only to western civilization and not to any previously stated evil ideology, all of which I have denounced my record is a vocal advocate for western civilization is nearly as full as my record in defense of freedom of speech. Ultimately, I told him you have to do what you have to do. And I will do what I have to do. I will continue to point out the truth and work with all the vigor that I have to represent fourth district islands for at least the next two years. So this is Steve king saying what he told leader McCarthy, and he's insisting here that the only word that he was defending in terms of why did this become offensive is the phrase western civilization, and that the New York Times to flatly quoted him. Meaning he said those words, but the, but the the sentiment that he conveyed about it being offensive or why did it become? Offensive was reserved only for the phrase western civilization. Steve king sang, I'm getting a raw deal here. And I don't and he's he said that those were evil ideologies, which he has denounced the prior phrases Nazi fascist, white, nationalist and white supremacist. This is a mess. It is a mess and. You just who knows. None of us were sitting in on. This is the problem when you give these long interviews almost an hour interview with the publication, they're gonna unless you have a recording of it. They take it out of it can be taken off come nuts saying they can be taken out of context. And then you've got they said he the deal. I hope he has audio 'cause he should release it for one interview. And if any congressional office who doesn't know actually had to do an alibi recording by this point, you should fire com. Staff is insane. If you're going to sit and do an interview you record your side of it. Because you know, you're entitled to be able to defend yourself when you feel like you're being misrepresented, especially in print. We're gonna talk to Susan free show at eight thirty five this morning to see if I can find out more about this last point. It's interesting to me, you know, I think Republicans have a mixture of things they run scared. But they also try and run responsibly. They want to take care of problems when they arise and we don't see that from the state from the other side of the aisle. We don't see the Democrats clean house anywhere near as swiftly or as routinely as Republicans attempt to do or at all. And here we are here. Well, Al Franken, maybe the notable exception. Here here. We are watching Steve king getting thrown out of all these positions. It's amazing. And like I said, this is a complete mess, but to put to put the obvious point on this. There is no realm or white supremacist. Defensible six fifty one on WMA WML, Dr Solvay on TMS therapy from green brook TMS narrow health centers, depression is one of the few kinds of takes over your identity, though, people wake up every morning, you look in the mirror, and you see that depressed version of you.

We will not be seating. Steve king on any committees. In the one hundred sixteenth congress decision from steering. In light of the comments. These are not the first time. We've heard these comments. That is not the party of Lincoln definitely not America after he was removed from serving on any committee king put out a statement saying his words were completely mischaracterized.

"We know the Charlottesville story that Donald Donald Trump's attacks on the social Justice advocacy, work of communities of color, people of color NFL players. And so for Kevin McCarthy for Mitt Romney for others. The words tonight really do ring hollow. If you're just sitting Steve king and not and you're not facing the elements within the party that gave Steve king permission to say the words that he said and Nancy a tributary off that point Steve king is not an enigma or mystery or a riddle people have known the guy and what he stands for. And what he has said why these comments why now? Well, it's fascinating to me that it's happening. Now, I think at some of the first backlash that we're potentially seeing against this type of rhetoric which David's right? The the president himself has sort of leaned on in the past. I think that what has happened is that king saw a much closer election result than he ever had before, you know, the margin that he won by was much slow much smaller, excuse me. And then the other thing was the Republicans faced huge challenges during the midterms they faced huge losses. Among suburban women in diverse communities. They were basically wiped out off the map out of California. Kevin McCarthy is still holding onto his seat. But I think that Republicans are realizing now that there is political risk to these type of us, even if Steve king has held them for a long time. And they're realizing that politically they need to distance themselves at least for now heading into twenty twenty for the future of the party two of our longtime favorites helping us out on a Monday night. David. Jolly Nancy Cooke. Really appreciate it. Thank you both for coming on and coming up, the shutdown cuisine there it is at the White House. Last thing before we go tonight. The president welcomed the NC double a college football champion. Clemson Tigers to the White House. Today cameras were there for the preparations and the odd juxtaposition of the White House domestic staff lighting, the candelabras on tables filled with fast food, the president in his overcoat later posed for this photo with said fast food Lincoln looking on as he later explained. He says he paid for the meal himself because the government shutdown has thinned out the ranks of the staff putting aside for the moment the debate over fast, food and its merits. It's tastiness or its appeal to college students to the president's opening remarks, we go, and as you'll hear as some of already pointed out tonight, he seems to see a woman's place as salad making. So I had a choice. Do we have no food for you? Because we have shut down. What do we give you some little quick, Sal? Eyelids that the first lady will make along with along with the second lady, they'll make some salads. And I said, you guys aren't into salads or do I go out, Lindsey Graham, and Tim Scott? Do I go out and send out for about one thousand Hemberger? So we actually we bought thousand Burger King all America companies Burger King Wendy's and McDonald's we have big Macs with quarter Pounder with cheese. We have everything that I like that you like. And I know no matter what we did. There's nothing you can have that's better than that. Right.

"And I mean the. Before the elections stiffer is from our did denounce king. But only after a poem urge showing that king might actually lose. Of course, he didn't. Which is why are you still there? Yeah. Exactly. It's also notable to me that this is totally you said that his policy. This is someone who's policy views are kind of seamless garment of our phrase from the Catholic church. But basically when it comes to immigration, you know, his views about the superiority of what he calls western civilization. His defense yesterday of literally the term white supremacist and his immigration views, which are hard edged restrictions. Those us have taken over the Republican party. And I think people who have those say like how can you call racist? But you know, Steve king is part of the reason. Exactly. I mean, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it might be dot. So part of part of what we're dealing here is that there's been this distancing of Steve king. And I completely agree with this point about people coming out and saying we're gonna we're really angry at Steve king. And you know, maybe we're gonna primary him but put your actions where we're words are for your actions where your worship put your money where your mouth is. Are you actually going to do something about it? Because actually what's happening is as as we see people denouncing what Steve king is staying saying rhetorically and kind of the most offensive of these comments. We're also seeing endorse the very same policies that undermine that underlie these words so there really isn't a difference. There might be a difference of semantics, logistics. But there's there's no difference in terms of actual tenor. So we're seeing things like the wall become mainstream. We're seeing things about immigration just this week. We saw within the Republican party. There is there is a debate within Texas Republicans of whether a Muslim should be. Hey. Head of head of a party institution. So these are actual real issues that have infected and corrupted the party and prebaked see king by longtime along shot. I will note that vote which intern county Texas, we noted last night on this program. We were talking about this to boot out the vice chair of the Tarrant county Republicans lost by pretty overwhelming margin. So well done Tarrant county Republicans about one hundred fifty to fifty I think of remembering the margin off the top of my head, though, there were fifty votes for it which links back to king, which is that as someone who reports is it fair to say that his immigration view has taken over the mainstream of the party or particularly the White House. I mean, it definitely seems like it's taken over in the White House. It's tough to say whether that directly came from king or not I think there's an argument that that came from Bannon and Miller as well and that kings always been aligned with those views, but it should be deeply concerning that we have a president who is sympathetic to someone like Steve king someone who. Promotes Nazis on Twitter who endorses white supremacist candidates for you know, the mayor of Toronto and the list goes on and on. Note. Also that before he was allied with Trump. He was the was he was the campaign national co chair of the Ted Cruz campaign. And there was no again this. He was still Steve king back. And there was literally no am I wrong. There was no controversy about that. No controversy. It's for whatever reason him it took him having to admit to being a widespread Misys the New York Times for anything to happen. And moreover, we he literally said the same thing he said to the New York Times he said that in October as well, he total TV host like he didn't he didn't think white nationalist was a derogatory term and crickets from from the this before the election. Yeah, over and then he won if you weeks later and another example of this is Kim Reynolds, governor of Iowa king was hurt her campaign co chair, and I you know, repeatedly and she was under a lot of pressure to say something about king and she's completely silent. Until after she won the election. And she said. King should reconsider his career lay. Right mcgirt and Christopher Mataya.

"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.
