Skip to comments.Jewish leaders in Iowa tear into King's 'white supremacist views'
Posted on 10/30/2018 8:24:45 PM PDT by yesthatjallen
Jewish leaders from Iowa wrote a letter for the Des Moines Register Tuesday condemning Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for white supremacist views.
Alan Steckman, president of Adas Israel in Mason City and John Pleasants, president of Ames Jewish Congregation, explained that they felt the need to respond in the wake of Saturday's shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
The two criticized King for using "funds from a Holocaust education organization to meet with a notoriously anti-Semitic propaganda site" as "shocking beyond any previous outrage."
They said that King's promotion of white supremacist ideology had previously gone unchallenged by many, and that that silence can "foster a climate that enables the kind of hateful violence that erupted three times in the last week."
"We call on all elected officials to stand with Iowa's Jewish community, denounce King's actions, and hold him accountable."
King has several contributors stop supporting him in the wake of recent comments, including Land O'Lakes, Intel and Purina.
A poll released Tuesday showed King with just a 1-point lead in the race over Democract JD Scholten.
The Cook Political Report also moved the race from "likely Republican" to "lean Republican," indicating the nonpartisan handicapper believes the race is tightening.
It turns out the midterms are going to be about antisemitism, 'white nationalism', and 'white supremacy'.
We have a new litmus test to contend with.
'Are you now or have you ever been an antisemite?
'Are you now or have you ever been a 'white nationalist'?
'Are you now or have you ever been a 'white supremacist'?
'Are you willing to go on record denouncing 'white nationalism' and 'white supremacy'?
The media is just bludgeoning the Jews to fall in line this election.
I looked through his wiki page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_King
He’s a “racist” because he’s not an open borders surrender monkey and because he’s got a sensible and realistic appraisal of Islam.
He’s an antidemocrat ... what’s not to like?
You can be a nationalist without being a white nationalist.
I’m white and I’m a nationalist.
I’ll make no apology for either, ever.
Are the Jews being blackmailed? Are they in debt to the media?
Trump’s been parrying that issue masterfully. With Laura Ingram, he was like, “I love my country, so I’m a nationalist, next question”.
Whenever you get summaries instead of contextual quotes from a left wing publication, you know its a smear.
How is this not election tampering?
OK . . . what’s the “notoriously antisemitic propaganda site” in question?? I see nothing named.
Trump does his best to bypass them but they still collectively control the 'narrative'.
Add to this the fact Conservatives are being purged from social media platforms.
The result is one side gets to set the news agenda.
You can bet the Democratic Media Complex is going to demand Trump, Republicans, and Conservatives denounce 'white' anything and everything.
You want a real taste of the enemy within the gates, read some of the putrid ‘comments’ below the linked story.
There’s no coexistence possible with such scum.
It’s only a matter of time . . .
Just Two Jewish leaders in all of Iowa tear into King’s ‘white supremacist views’ of which they offer no Compelling Evidence
there. fixed it.
When all else fails for Democrats (as usual) they go to the old reliable deck of race cards. A few months ago the RATS were shooting their mouths off all but declaring they were going to win back both chambers of Congress. A different story today. The fact they’re going hard on the race baiting in the last week of the campaign is an indication they’re not confident at all, that they’re fading in their internal polls and know they’re in trouble next week.
DNCC Headquarters ?
Im watching Fox criticize him right now. Apparently the head of the GOP congressional campaign attacked him as well.
A bludgeon: a weapon like a club.
Only the GOPe and progressives fret over white nationalism
Plus One or do we still say BTTT?
