Steve King Compares His Problems With The Crucifixion Of Jesus

An avowed white supremacist compares his 'suffering' to the passion of Jesus Christ.

I'm having a hard time figuring out the logic here. Jesus is said to have been crucified and died for our sins. So, if Steve King is also being crucified (humour me), then our sin must be letting too many brown people into the country.

Schmuck.

Steve King lost all of his House committee assignments in January because he said this out loud:

"White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

And I honestly don't blame Rep. Steve King (R-IA) for his perversion. He's an avowed white supremacist. It's just what they do. However, I do blame the nincompoops in Iowa's 4th district who keep sending this piece of filth who calls himself a Christian back to Congress every two years. They are just as awful as he is.

(CNN) Rep. Steve King said Tuesday he can relate to the suffering of Jesus Christ, seemingly equating his recent controversies to what Christ "went through for us."

"For all that I've been through -- and it seems even strange for me to say it -- but I am at a certain peace, and it is because of a lot of prayers for me," King said at a town hall in Cherokee, Iowa.

"And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us partly because of that experience."
