GOP Representative Steve King Shares Sickening Meme Alienating The Majority Of The Country

You might reasonably think that at this point it would not be possible for the GOP to sink any lower than it already has. We have a man who is currently sitting as President of the United States and leader of the free world who is almost certainly one of the least qualified and least suitable people ever to take up office in the Oval Office. And that is before we even get to the immensely problematic things he has constantly said and done for the last three years on a loop. It is therefore inevitable that the organization of which he is effectively leader – the Republican party – is rotten to its core and has a colossal amount to be ashamed of. That is also true of Rep. Steve King, who recently joked on Twitter about the possibility of a new civil war:

Rep. Steve King, whose history of making racist remarks has recently come under scrutiny, shared a Facebook post over the weekend that boasts red states would “win” a fight against blue states — and that they have “8 trillion bullets.” “Wonder who would win…” the Iowa Republican wrote in a post Saturday, adding an emoji with a smirk. Attached to the post is a photo depicting Democratic-leaning states engaged in a fight with Republican-leaning states. The photo’s caption reads, “Folks keep talking about another civil war… One side has about 8 trillion bullets, while the other side doesn’t know which bathroom to use,” an apparent reference to Democrats’ support of gender-neutral bathrooms.

Among the collection of states colored blue is King’s home state of Iowa, which he has represented in Congress since 2003. King’s office did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment. Later Monday, the post was removed from King’s Facebook page. The post came several days after President Donald Trump seemed to insinuate that his supporters — the police, military and “Bikers for Trump,” he claims — could turn violent against Democrats. Earlier this year, House Republicans stripped King of his committee assignments following remarks he made to the New York Times that were sympathetic to white supremacy, though King said his comments were taken out of context. The move was celebrated by Democrats, who had long complained about the congressman’s history of incendiary comments related to race and immigration.
That this guy still somehow actually holds public office is truly mind boggling. If he has not been kicked out of office by now, our democracy must be truly broken.
