After Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was quoted downplaying the severity of the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacist," he claimed to denounce those ideologies in an interview with NBC's Kasie Hunt.

The latest controversy from the 4th District Republican from interview King conducted last week that appeared in an article published on Thursday in the New York Times.

Republican Congressman Steve King - now facing two GOP primary opponents if he seeks reelection - has issued a statement saying he's an advocate of "Western Civilization's values" but not white supremacy. He also posed the question, "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"

U.S. flu season poised to be milder than last year's
Because the model is new, CDC researchers said they aren't able to compare those estimates to previous flu seasons. They were sick, they went to a doctor and they got some sort of test to confirm a diagnosis of influenza.

Law&Crime contacted King's office for comment on this, but they have not responded.

Liz Cheney, the third-ranking House Republican, tweets that King's remarks are "abhorrent and racist and should have no place in our national discourse".

"Steve King is basically an open white nationalist at this point", wrote Andrew Anglin, the founder of the neo-Nazi Daily Stormer. "Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives", he said. "I think it's important that he rejected that kind of evil, because that's what it is, it's evil ideology", he said. "As I told the New York Times, 'It's not about race; it's never been about race'".

Fellow Dems Chastise Ocasio-Cortez: ‘She Doesn’t Understand How the Place Works’
Lieberman added in the interview the Democrats will lose voters in the long term if Ocasio-Cortez's ideas are endorsed. Congresswoman and Westchester County high school graduate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is embroiled in a new controversy.

State Sen. Randy Feenstra, R-Hull, announced Wednesday that he will run against King, a Republican from Kiron. Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan, a Democrat, has just called on the U.S. House of Representatives to censure King. "I am dedicated to keeping America this way", he said. The candidate, Faith Goldy, has promoted books espousing anti-Semitic ideas and defending the white supremacist "14 words" slogan, according to the Toronto Star.

And fellow Republican Rep. Justin Amash of MI said: "This is an embrace of racism, and it has no place in Congress or anywhere".

Despite the criticism, King narrowly won re-election in November.
