Congressman Steve King: How can Jews ‘be Democrats first and Jewish second’?

Congressman Steve King (R-Iowa) said he couldn’t understand how “Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second” and support the way President Barack Obama is dealing with Israel, in an interview with Boston Herald Radio Friday.

“There were some 50 or so Democrats that decided they would boycott [Netanyahu’s] speech … I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president,” King told Boston Herald Radio’s “Boston Herald Drive” program.

“It says this, they’re knee-jerk supporters of the president’s policy,” the congressman added.

When asked on the show if anti-Semitism was a factor – it’s not clear whether the host was referring to Obama’s policies – King said yes, alongside “plain liberalism,” according to CNN.

FK – If you’re living in the United States and don’t put this country and our Liberty and the Bill of Rights first you don’t belong here much less deserve to be here!!!!!
