When Will Steve King (R-Iowa) Apologize?

US Congressman Steve King called union organizers "weapons of mass destruction" while advocating for new legislation that would make it substantially harder of unions to organize new workers.

Symbols matter.

Steve King should apologize for trivializing the specific threat of unconventional weaponry and also to every American worker who hopes for a fair deal from their employer.

Come on, Steve. Does that mean that for you, health care and retirement benefits signify a mushroom cloud? Get real. What pathetic, despicable rhetoric.

Graham, don't hold your breath while waiting for an apology from Rep. Steve King. King will never apologize to anyone. In addition to being a bigot, a racist, and the least educated in Congress, he suffers from delusions of grandeur.

In short, he's a legend in his own mind. Then again, what does one expect from a man who considers Joe McCarthy a "hero for all times."
