    Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro on Thursday called for Congress to "censure" Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) after the lawmaker questioned why terms like "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" are offensive.

    "Congress ought to vote to censure him, and then he ought to be primaried ASAP," Shapiro, the editor-in-chief of The Daily Wire, tweeted.



I never thought I'd see the day that a conservative shill should actually argue against a Republican politician appealing to white supremacy. Where is the bitching about "muh Freedom of Speech"? Where is the denial of racism? This is unprecedented. Did a conservative person actually realize that language matters? Probably not. At least, if Shithole had said it then the response would have the usual transparent toadying.

This quote is a gem:


    Stephen Hayes, the former editor-in-chief of the conservative magazine, The Weekly Standard, asked: "What sane, thoughtful conservative would choose to remain in a party home to such an unapologetic bigot?"



I know, right. King's only been in Congress for twenty fucking years. And the president is the least racist self-proclaimed Nationalist you've ever met; he said so, right after being accused of racism for saying the same kind of shit that King has said.
