Rep. Steve King (R-IA) Accuses Barack Obama of Favortism Towards Blacks over Whites in America

Did you hear Iowa congressman Steve King's racist rant against President Obama? Here is some of what he had to say:

When you look at this administration, I'm offended by Eric Holder and the President also, their posture. It looks like Eric Holder said that white people in America are cowards when it comes to race. And I don't know what the basis of that is but I'm not a coward when it comes to that and I'm happy to talk about these things and I think we should. But the President has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race - on the side that favors the Black person...
Take a moment to listen to his full comments on the show:





King, a four-term lawmaker, made similar remarks about Obama in a speech last month.

"When he had an Irish cop and a Black professor, who’d he side with?” King said. “He jumped to a conclusion without having heard the facts. And he ended up having to have a beer summit. The president of the United States has got to articulate a mission. And instead, he’s playing race-bait games to undermine the law enforcement in the state of Arizona and across the country."
I'm beginning to sense more and more of a right-wing agenda of hate that is being laid out along racial lines. Will the Tea Party and others in the Republican Pary go along with this new race-based campaign strategy? Or will someone in the GOP man up and tell Steve King to shove it?

What say u?

What Rep. Steve King has stated is the plain truth. Why deny it?

David - Actually, the congressman is factually incorrect. There is nothing that President Obama has done in office that reflects favortism of the Black community. Can you give any examples that support Rep. King's race-baiting comments?
