Republican Steve King, rebuked over racist remarks, compares himself to Jesus

Republican Congressman Steve King was removed from committees and publicly rebuked by his own party after his history of racist remarks flowered into open white supremacy. The experience gave him insight into Jesus's crucifixion.

"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."

He knows who the true believers are; they believe in him.

Update: Christopher Matias points out that some outlets are falsely suggesting King was censured by congress; it did not go that far.
