The Hill reports:

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) is questioning how terms such as “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” became offensive in the U.S.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King asked in an interview with The New York Times published on Thursday. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

The comments came as part of an expansive report from the newspaper on King’s hard-line views on immigration and how they mirror much of what President Trump has pushed for during his presidency.

First of all, I see what you did there King. Lumping “Western civilization” in with “white supremacist.” Granted, western civilization hasn’t always been on the up and up, but keep your shit brush away from my Shakespeare and my Voltaire.

If your question really is “How did the terms White nationalists and white supremacist become offensive?”

Try looking in a mirror.
