2. He's the apotheosis of current GOP dogma. He plainly spoke what they all believe.

They flinch at the language he used in public but not the perspective he illuminates. Why else would they cling to and defend the border wall, child separation, mass invasion hysteria and other insidious policies and actions if they were so incensed by his beliefs.
It is only when one of them gets caught saying these things in public plain language rather than the racist code they normally purvey that they object.

3. Note that Nationalist does not equal Patriot.

A patriot just loves his/her country. A nationalist sees his/her country as superior, much as certain whites view themselves as superior, so there is implied disdain for other countries and nationalities.

Ever notice how white supremacists donít seem all that supreme?

6. It takes a lot to piss me off but,

This big dude, a guest on Chuck Toad, just said that Repugs are getting rid of King because they donít want him to be an Ocasio-Cortez.
I donít know his name, heís been on quite a bit. Heís a big black dude, is usually pretty fair.

9. The NYT just printed Steve King's own words. Which were unbelievable.

"White supremacist"? His words. "Nationalist"? He knows, like we all do, what that ideology is.

Unbelievable. That is who the alt-right is. That is who Trumpers are.
