    I’m hoping he fades away quickly. I have been mildly embarrassed for years that Rep. King and I share some (non-overlapping) years in the same small town in northwest Iowa.Report

      Sadly he’s from a gerrymandered-white-supremacist district and the guy who primaried him is actually a WORSE racist.Report

        What is your basis for this claim? Searching for “Randy Feenstra” and “racist” just gave me a bunch of hits about how Steve King is a racist.Report

        • Truth in reply to Brandon Berg says:

          History of his statements. Among other things Feenstra uses clinic bomber rhetoric like Trump (claiming democrats are up for legalizing “abortion up until birth”). His record on voting rights is actually worse than King’s, he supports racially biased “felon disenfranchisement” scams similar to Florida’s poll tax setup. His few statements on actual civil rights have been dishonest “all lives matter” sorts of statements like “special references to any specific race, creed, age, sex or national origin is not required.” He would literally strip away the protective language of laws like the Civil Rights Act if he could.

          About the only difference between Feenstra and King is that Feenstra manages to not say the quiet parts out loud so often.Report
