New Civil War White Nationalist Rep. Steve King Posts Violent Meme 

Republican lawmaker shares image claiming “red states” have 8 trillion bullets.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who has a long history of touting white nationalism, has taken his meme game to a violent new level.

The disgraced lawmaker ― who was unceremoniously stripped of all his House committee assignments this year for previous white nationalist rhetoric ― shared a graphic that imagined “another civil war,” this time between red and blue states.

“Wonder who would win…” added King, apparently not noticing that his home state was depicted on the losing side.

The meme has since been removed from his Facebook page. King’s office did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s request for comment.

Twitter users called out King for sharing the image:
