5 Minute Action for Friday, 3/17: Rebuke Steve King

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) created a firestorm last Sunday when he tweeted in support of anti-Muslim nationalist Dutch politician Geert Wilders, writing that Wilders “understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

Whose babies? Our team has had DNA testing. We are a little bit of everything. This way of thinking is archaic. We reject this unequivocal racism by an elected official, let alone a GOP House leader.

When challenged on his statement, let’s be clear:  “King doubled down on his comments during later interviews with CNN and Fox News, saying, “I meant exactly what I said.” 

Step 1:  Join House Minority Leader Sen. Pelosi (D-CA) in demanding that GOP leaders remove Rep. Steve King as chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice.

  • Script:  “I’m calling to ask you to remove Steve King from the Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution and Civil Justice – considering his racist beliefs, it is clear he is unfit to serve in that capacity, and I expect you to take action immediately on this critical matter.”
  • Find your committee member at the link below; scan the list and you’ll find both republican and democratic committee members. Prioritize a call to republican, but OK to call either to make the point! Click here for info about the committee  – https://judiciary.house.gov/subcommittee/full-committee/

BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
