This resolution would condemn comments made by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) and express that the U.S. House of Representatives rejects white nationalism and white supremacy as being contrary to American values. King was quoted as asking: “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
The resolution goes on to cite the FBI’s definition of white supremacy and white nationalism, describe crimes perpetrated by white supremacists and white nationalists. Further, the resolution quotes condemnations of white supremacy made by historical American leaders such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Abraham Lincoln, and Ronald Reagan.
As a simple resolution, this bill wouldn’t advance beyond the House if passed.
