Rep. Steve King posts meme calling for ‘new civil war’ in the United States


Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is one of the most odious and objectionable members of the GOP, and such a right-wing extremist that his own party stripped him of his committee assignments after he announced he supported the idea of white nationalism.

And now King is again in hot water for a meme posted on his verified Facebook account in which he seems to be advocating for a “second civil war” in the United States and suggesting that red state America would win because they have more bullets:

Keep in mind this posting from King comes just days after the mosque shootings in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left 50 worshipers dead and dozens more wounded. Those shootings were allegedly perpetrated by a man who identifies with the white nationalist movement that’s been endorsed by Congressman King.

Reaction on Twitter was immediate:

The party of Trump continues to make it painfully clear that everything they believe and do is bad for this country. Time to vote them out en masse and turn them into a permanent minority party.
