[su_right_ad]Iowa’s Steve King reasons that since Jesus dined with tax collectors, Steve Scalise was fine keynoting a white supremacist rally.

Steve King (R-Iowa)  jumped to Scalise’s defense. “Jesus dined with tax collectors and sinners,” he said according to the Washington Post. “I know his heart, I’ve painted houses with him post-Katrina, and I know he is a good man.”

Governor Bobby Jindal (R-Exorcist) said in a statement, “I know Congressman Scalise to be a good man who is fair-minded and kindhearted. I’m confident he absolutely rejects racism in all its forms,” according to the Times-Picayune.

David Duke said the exact same thing.[su_csky_ad]

      Yaay for Jesus WOW!

      • granpa.usthai December 31st, 2014 at 4:09 pm

        even Jesus refuted those who called him ‘good’.

    Perfect way to end the year with a reminder of the relentless hypocrisy that permeates the American right. Of course with all the ranting about Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers and Al Sharpton did any of these intellectually bankrupt ideologues give the President the benefit of the doubt because he was a good person and strong family man?

    There will be lots to do in 2015. These hypocrites have no business in positions of power, and the first order of business will be to lay the groundwork so that in 2016, they no longer are.

      first, forcing these WHITE RACIST ‘associates’ to purge our US Military and local, state and federal Law Enforcement Agencies along with the Judicial System by upholding existing or introducing new LAW is of a greater importance. Those in the Legislature who are a supportive part of WHITE RACIST Rule will be calling themselves out – just as King has done here.

    Someone needs to check into Steve King (R-Iowa) closets for white robes and hoods…
    Whats even more shocking is they are making the ‘Scalise’ is just like Jesus comparison, as if Jesus attended a couple of Klan rallies, and I doubt if Scalise is going to die for the sins of mankind…(that gig is already taken).

    • granpa.usthai December 31st, 2014 at 4:07 pm

      there were a lot of men that dressed up back in them days. Don’t know if they was all white dresses or not, but St. Peter (another white looking European guy that was camping in Jerusalem whacked off the ear of a not pure Aryan white guard in the church’s armed forces). Of course, St. Peter never was referred to as having a ‘good’ heart like Scalise.

    When the Christian Conservative is out of excuses for unchristian like behavior, he will usually break out the (you guessed it) Christian card.

    • granpa.usthai December 31st, 2014 at 4:43 pm

      Jesus himself never said he was opposed to lynchings!
      -or murdering black children for the criminal act of ‘walking while black’.

      but, what is to be expected from a homeless less than pure Aryan White freeloading bum that never went to Sunday School or even had a radio for a rush enlightenmentingnizing?

    This was in my timeline yesterday….

    One politician spoke at white supremacist event. Another told his son to be careful around the police. GOP defends the 1st, slams the 2nd.

  6. bhil December 31st, 2014 at 10:48 am

    “I know his heart” That said noted heart surgeon Steve King, how about similar acceptance towards the President and his past associations?

  7. edmeyer_able December 31st, 2014 at 10:54 am

    Steve King: I know his heart
    Yea and georgie looked into putin’s baby blue eyes and saw his soul, and then let him invade Georgia w/no repercussions….

    • Pilotshark December 31st, 2014 at 11:30 am

      well according to Johnny Wet Start McCain, We all are Georgians.

      it’s a bit difficult not to agree with the KGB when you look ‘soul deep’ in their eyes and KNOW you are being watched.

  8. rg9rts December 31st, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Somehow I knew this moron was involved

  9. jasperjava December 31st, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    No surprise that Steve King would support a Republican who rubs shoulders with white supremacists, who shares conservative views with David Duke, and who thinks the “main” problem that Duke has is electability, not the fact that he’s a racist Klansman.

    • R.J. Carter December 31st, 2014 at 3:36 pm

      Okay, I’m developing a serious problem with this story that’s going beyond the reasonable realms of co-inky-dink.

      Support from Steve King?
      Support from David Duke?
      Support from Kenny Knight?
      Support from Barbara Noble?

      I thought we were a frickin’ Democracy?!?

      • amongoose December 31st, 2014 at 4:19 pm

        Representative Republic actually.
        democracy is tyranny by majority.

        • R.J. Carter December 31st, 2014 at 4:40 pm

          Point taken.

          • amongoose December 31st, 2014 at 4:47 pm

            I am afraid though it has devolved into an oligarchy.

  10. amongoose December 31st, 2014 at 2:39 pm

    According to a Slate article the event he spoke at was before and not part of the WN event.

    Rep. Steve Scalise may have just ineptly admitted to speaking at a white supremacist event that eyewitnesses say he never attended. Two event attendees say it’s factually inaccurate to characterize Scalise’s comments as directed at the supremacist gathering—even though Scalise’s own office has said the House majority whip spoke to the group 12 years ago.

    Knight said on Tuesday that it’s “totally incorrect” to say Scalise spoke at that convention.

    “He spoke early in the day to a contingent of people, prior to the conference kicking off,” Knight said. “He was not there as a guest speaker at the conference.”

    According to Knight, he and Scalise were neighbors in 2002, living in the Old Jefferson neighborhood outside New Orleans. They were friendly and lived within a few blocks of each other. Knight recalls that Scalise would beep the horn and wave at him if he drove by in his car.

    • granpa.usthai December 31st, 2014 at 3:59 pm

      So David Dukes is intentionally LYING?

      • amongoose December 31st, 2014 at 4:15 pm

        Wouldn’t be the first time. Only posted what Slate reported.

  11. carlbarry December 31st, 2014 at 2:50 pm

    So why are the Republicons STILL complaining about Pres. Obama/Rev. Wright?

    • OldLefty December 31st, 2014 at 3:09 pm

      I know.

      As a matter of fact, conservatives should agree MORE with Wright,

      Rev Wright blamed 9/11 on the US government using it’s awesome power to oppress the people.

      Jerry Falwell, and Pat Robertson blamed 9/11 on the US government NOT using it’s awesome power to oppress the people.

      Why are the “limited government, don’t tread on me” crowd on the fainting couch over Wright’s remarks, yet comfortable with the other’s?

      Could it be the dashiki?

  12. R.J. Carter December 31st, 2014 at 3:34 pm

    Now if only Scalise had actually attended the rally. Or does that even matter anymore?

    • Mainah January 3rd, 2015 at 9:29 am

      I found that it’s a bit muddy. He may have attended an event he says himself. But this is what snopes found which was last updated January 2, 2015. Snopes is neutral from what I’ve found:

  13. granpa.usthai December 31st, 2014 at 3:57 pm

    a nice little written transcript of the speech will surely clear up any misunderstandings that have been noted. I’m sure that with the OVERLY COMPETENT staff and spokesperson in the US TAXPAYED employment of Scalise will have this small insignificant misperception of such a wonderful good man whose heart is well known just any ‘ole millennium now. Very simple, really, just release a written transcript and/or possibly one of the ‘motivation’ videos shown during WHITE ARYAN recruitment ceremonies?
