Note to editors: You may now refer to Rep. Steve King (R-IA) as an avowed white supremacist. Update your style manuals.
The phrase “white supremacist” without qualification remains accurate as well.
(For those saying King has been openly racist for a long time: Yes, I know. What I’m referring to here is his embrace of the term “white supremacist,” which I haven’t seen from him before. Thus “avowed.”)
Dozens of prominent people have described Steve King as a white supremacist in recent months, but it wasn't until Steve King did it that Steve King felt the need to disavow the label.
"People such as [checks notes] myself are suggesting that I'm a white supremacist, but I'm here to tell you those people are [checks script] wrong!"
