McCarthy Vows ‘Action’ on Steve King After Latest Race Remarks

Tim Scott

McCarthy said the language used by King "has no place in America" and added that he wouldn't allow such words to continue "to stand and have any role with us".

Senator Tim Scott, a Republican representing SC, penned a thoughtful piece in The Washington Post on how some fellow Republicans like Steve King are damaging the party by spewing thoughts that lack basic fairness and civility yet wonder why the party is considered to be racist.

McCarthy, who said the two would meet Monday, didn't outline specific measures he planned to take but suggested that "a number of things" would become public. The top three Republicans in the House and other lawmakers from the party condemned the remarks.

"Actions will be taken", he said.

McCarthy, who appeared on CBS' "Face the Nation", told host Margaret Brennan after the cameras were turned off that he is reviewing whether King, now serving his ninth term, should keep his committee assignments, according to CBS' transcript of the broadcast.

"Anything less than these substantive actions is another tacit acceptance of racism from the Republican Party", her statement continued. "Instead, they must actually condemn Mr. King by removing him from his committee assignments so that he can no longer affect policies that impact the very people he has made it clear he disdains".

Chris Pratt announces engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger
Rumors of the couple dating began in June when they were snapped during a picnic in California, as per the Daily Mail . On Friday, Pratt shared a video on Instagram that showed him helping Schwarzenegger move out of her Santa Monica home.

In a floor speech Friday, King didn't apologize for his remarks. "The new normal around here is to praise white supremacists and nationalism as something that shouldn't be shunned". He also told CNN, "I'd like to see an America that's just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same".

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), when asked by reporters whether Democrats would censure King, stated, "we'll be acting on that", without elaboration.

Last Thursday, The New York Times quoted an interview with King in which the congressman said, "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization - how did that language become offensive?"

"We have made significant progress in our nation, and while there is still work to do, we can not let these intolerant and hateful views hold us back".

"Should there be action against Congressman King?" "We can not continue down this path if we want to continue to be a great nation", she wrote Saturday morning. I think all of us ought to be united, regardless of party, in saying, white supremacism, white nationalism, is hatred.
