In a recent town hall, Rep. Steve King issued a warning to Iowa's college students:  Stay away from multicultural organizations because they are actually just "people that feel sorry for themselves," and therefore are a form of the proletariat that want to "overthrow the establishment."  Is King jealous that his buddy Rep. Todd Akin has been getting all the attention?
