Steve King identifies himself as a 'nationalist,' defends earlier comments

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) sought to defend himself on Thursday after facing blowback from fellow Republicans for asking how the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" became offensive.

King tried to offer a distinction between nationalist and nationalism in favor of white people.

"Under any fair political definition, I am simply a Nationalist," King said in a statement. "This conviction does not make me a white nationalist or a white supremacist. Once again, I reject those labels and the ideology that they define."

"I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives," he said in the statement.

3. "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" have always been offensive to many (most)

in America since the middle of last century, Mr. King you fuckwad. Hope he thinks that is offensive.
