Black conservatives are plentiful but they have no party currently, at least one that seems to want them.
Not in his district. It's 96% white, 2.5% Hispanic. Black people basically don't exist. The few that do are more because they're just outside of Des Moines which puts them in the 4th District. Gerrymandering is only highly effective, not perfect after all.

Sure, as soon as she makes grossly unacceptable racist, xenophobic or other discriminatory remarks.
Merely occupying a far left or far right political position is not a reason to expel, as long as you conduct yourself in a professional manner.

And I am in Florida, have two brothers in other states as well, and all of our friends and community known who Steve King is.

If you can be upset at AOC and you live all the way in Iowa, then the reverse would be true as well, nothing is local anymore. This is a national story and his antics again are well known NATIONALLY.


All I am saying is I don't make a habit of keeping Neo-Nazi's or Black Israelites that scream at every white person around, near me or my friends. But this guy has been chummy with his fellow Republican congressmen for 15 years. The company you keep says a lot to Black conservatives as they are always concerned with being used as a propaganda tools by both parties. Good enough to take a picture with but not good enough to have any input or question why a guy like Steve King is still around.

The House has quietly opened a formal Impeachment Inquiry. Expelling King would be consistent with that.

A congressperson cannot be impeached -- but they can be expelled. Congress has used its expulsion power a total of 15 times. Expulsion requires a two-thirds vote.

He has made extremely controversial comments apparently in support of white supremacy, as well as recent comments denying abortions to women even in the case of rape or incest.

The Republican Party, to their credit, have distanced themselves from Mr. King.


Just like a lib-


You have two congress members who are Islamic extremists, which is perfectly fine with you. Yet you want to "expel" a member of Congress who has been re-elected several times by his district, because YOU, as a liberal, don't like him?


Memo- HE IS NOT YOUR CONGRESSMAN. LET THE DISTRICT DECIDE WHETHER THEY WANT HIM OR NOT.


Just more evidence that liberals are fascists at heart and do not respect the US election process.

Who cares? Blacks vote democrat regardless of who runs for office.


I have always supported King and will continue to send money to his re-election campaign. He is good for Iowa; the fact that liberals hate him must mean he is doing the right thing.


Every election cycle, out of state money pours in trying to defeat him, yet they always lose. Dems are fascists who would like to subvert election results, just as they supported the coup attempt against Trump. If libs had their way, there would be no Constitution and no individual rights- just a socialist totalitarian state.

OK, I just bet if she did you would still defend her. It is not up to congress to act on these issues whether we like hearing them. I wish Omar could be removed but I think that is completely up to those who voted her in. God knows she is a bigot!! As for AOL she has said some awful things but she represents her district and only they should decide if she stays or goes.

I have to wonder what are you going to dream up next to make your point? You don't like anyone who may have an R next to their name. You have indicated that since day one.

Oh, I hate to break this to you, but most of us are aware the Dems (a very few of them I will add) have started a impeachment investigation. Thanks for letting the few who don't know about this though!!!!!

I know introspection isn't a conservative thing, but come on.

What an utterly creepy thing for him to say. Then again, Trump would probably get away with it.

Congress should start by censuring Rep. King.

I think it's a great idea for Democrats in the House to start expelling members for saying things they don't agree with. Great way to start the election season!

When Nazi Germany did it to the Poles, it signaled the beginning of ethnic cleansing. Maybe the Dems have adopted these tactics for 2020! So far, they're following the script. All the best!
