King has long been dubbed "America's white supremacist congressman" for often making remarks in support of white nationalism. “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” King asked in an interview with The New York Times published on Thursday. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”I thought that Shapiro was an advocate of conservative policies and free speech.
Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro responded to King's quote saying, "Congress ought to vote to censure him, and then he ought to be primaried ASAP. …" Shapiro also tweeted he will donate to his primary opponents campaign.
He is first of all, an orthodox Jew. Jews like Shapiro and Mormons like Romney tend to hate Pres. Trump, even when they agree with everything he does.
To answer King's question, those things became offensive when Jews got control of the news and entertainment media. They hate Whites and Western Civilization most of all. They would get laughed at if they used the term "Western Civilization", so they call it "white supremacy" instead.
King did not support white nationalism or white supremacy. He merely complained that these terms are being used to smear support for Western Civilization.
Whites are supreme in the USA and Europe in the sense that they are the largest ethnic group, and they have dominated everything that makes the civilization run smoothly.
Jews hate this, and do everything they can to bring in non-whites and non-Christians, and to undermine whites whenever possible.
The Left has been doing this for decades. You might think that the Jews are only doing it because they are leftists, but how do you explain Shapiro? He is not a leftist, and he attacks leftists whenever he can.
