"Rep. Steve King (R-IA) criticized "Jews in America" who, in an effort to align themselves with President Obama's stance on Israel, are "Democrats first and Jewish second," BuzzFeed reported on Friday.
King's comments were made during an interview on Friday with Boston Herald Radio about the members of Congress who refused to attend Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress on March 3.
"Well, there were some 50 or so Democrats that, that decided they would boycott the president's speech," King said. "Here's what I don't understand, I don't understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their President."
You know what? I've spent my whole life hearing from right wing haters that American Jews were really more loyal to Israel (a place most of them have never been) than they are to the United States. Now it turns out that American Jews are supposed to support Israel more than our own country? Who knew?
Let's face it: to anti-Semitic haters like Steve King, Jews are horrible no matter what they do. They have this supporting role to play in King's ugly little theology, where they are all slaughtered so his malicious God can come back, but other than that, they should just shut up and support their would-be murderers, whatever they happen to want at the moment.
Why the hell do we allow people like this to be in Congress?
