Rep. Steve King (R-IA) criticized "Jews in America" who, in an effort to align themselves with President Obama's stance on Israel, are "Democrats first and Jewish second," BuzzFeed reported on Friday.
King's comments were made during an interview on Friday with Boston Herald Radio about the members of Congress who refused to attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on March 3.
"Well, there were some 50 or so Democrats that, that decided they would boycott the president's speech," King said. "Here's what I don't understand, I don't understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their President."
I think he's kind of weird to assert that Jewish people in the US are basically anti-Semitic and in lockstep with the obviously Muslim-influenced Barack Obama, as if the weird result doesn't somehow suggest that his math is actually bad, there.
Problem with Iowa Republican Steve King being a racist? Presidential primaries start in Iowa, so presidential candidates are supposed to kiss his sorry ass. Unless someone can explain to me why presidential candidates don't have to kiss his sorry ass. Show examples. This might actually help the GOP if there's a way to fix a problem like Steve.
