Rep. Steve King Claims He Has Been Persecuted Like Jesus

Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa made the stunning claim on April 22 that he has been persecuted like Jesus was during the crucifixion.

King, who has a history of white nationalism and racist statements, explained his perceived persecution at a town hall meeting in Cherokee, Iowa, notes the Sioux City Journal:

For all that I’ve been through, and it seems even strange for me to say it, but I am at a certain peace, and it is because of a lot of prayers for me.

And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ’s passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us partly because of that experience.
