This is what a White Ethno-nationalist party looks like

Republican member of Congress– and longtime thinly-veiled racist/xenophobe– Steve King on twitter yesterday:

What’s depressing is how little pushback there is from other Republicans so far (there’s very little in a google news search as of just now).  To stand silent in the face of this is to tacitly approve.  And it’s disgusting.

And, this is what a white entho-nationalist political party looks like.  However much you may love (the shamefully dishonest) Paul Ryan and his tax cuts, this is what the Republican Party has become.

And Good Lord, while searching on twitter for any sign of widespread Republican condemnation I came across this tweet, which I just assumed was a fake quote until I saw it was from CNN.  Trump’s America.
