US House votes 424-1 to condemn white supremacy and white nationalism

“You what that means boys. We have to protect our phony-baloney jobs!”

The U.S. House of Representatives just voted 424-1 to formally condemn white supremacy and white nationalism, in the wake of comments made last week by Rep. Steve King, a Republican of Iowa. MSNBC notes Congressman King voted for the Resolution.

House Resolution 41, filed by Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), specifically names Congressman King, and includes the most controversial part of his remarks that have cause a firestorm, HuffPost reports.
