    Steve King’s election is about as safe as Chris Stewart’s in northern utah. The dude could shoot someone at temple square and as long as he doesn’t trash trump or burn a Book of Mormon, he’ll be fine. He’d probably win by a wider margin if he shot a minority or a woman democrat that looked like AOC.

    Rural “economically anxious” districts that proclaim to be the “real America” are really killing our democracy. As they grow poorer and more desperate and out of step with the 21st century economy and demographics, their anger at everyone else grows. They definitely have a self sustaining victim complex.

    King survived a historical blue wave. We can all hope he’ll be ousted but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Pointing out that certain politicians’ support derives from their racism and misogyny makes me the racist and misogynist?

    You’re absolutely right. If Steve King’s district didn’t agree with his racism, they probably wouldn’t have kept him in office for nearly 2 decades now. His racism has never exactly been a secret.

    Are some of you still insinuating that racism isn’t one of it not the key component of the GOP today? Have some of you morons already memory holed, “Send Her Back?” Or Elijah Cummings? Or mocking Asian accents? Guys... cmon.

    I think its an uneducated emotion based argument a majority of the time and calling everything racist allows true racism to flourish and remain cloaked in. In a sense I find that racist as hell. It wasn't you but I was called a Nazi on this very board and I have never said a racist thing in my life. How does that help anything? It's always about identity with people and a lot of the time calling someone racist is nothing more than a way to insult someone.

    *Wrongfully

    Lol I appreciate the failed reading comprehension though. Not sure why you would have to make something up when I said nothing of the sort.

    Disregarding the blatant racism of Steve king and today’s GOP because you disagree with someone who called you a Nazi? Maybe calling you a Nazi was an outlier? You don’t disregard the rest of the data just because of one outlier. The data shows the GOP becoming more homogeneous and increasingly more racist.

    Lets not pretend that Steve King’s or Donald Trump’s Views aren’t mainstream republican. They're just louder than others. In fact, trump’s approval among republicans went up after his racist tweets on the squad. Racism is a winning strategy for republicans because they’re so racist. What other possible conclusion can be made?

    You support Trump, you support a fascist. You support a fascist, you're a Nazi. Simple.

    What do you think about this?



    A. His support is waning? After making headlines for his racist and invest comments, people still support him even if they don’t show up to his town halls.

    B. His district is apathetic, even after making headlines after his racist and incest comments, people STILL aren’t angered enough to show up at his town halls.

    C. Something else?

    Which is it?
