update Republicans funded the Department of Homeland Security for one whole week.
update 2 While republicans were busy rimming the lying racist Benjamin Netanyahu, democrats funded the Department of Homeland Security for the rest of the year.
The third ranking republican in the House of Representatives today (year 2015) Steve Scalise endorsed then-state Rep. John LaBruzzo’s re-election campaign in the district once represented by David Duke. He did so despite the fact that LaBruzzo got into hot water for proposing to pay poor (black) women to be sterilized or otherwise to not have children, while rich, better-educated (white) women could be given incentives to reproduce 
The third ranking republican in the House of Representatives (who apparently doesn't have a racist bone in his body >>> he actually has two hundred six) is acting like a racist - Steve Scalise tried to kill a bill that apologized for slavery. Scalise can’t defend his efforts to kill the entire bill on the basis that he didn’t think he should have to apologize. Killing the bill suggests that Scalise didn’t think that America had anything to apologize for. Republicans can talk about what is in Steve Scalise’s heart and that they think that he is a good man, but as the old saying goes, actions speak louder than words 
GOP House leader Steve Scalise was honored guest speaker at white supremacist conference. House majority whip Scalise confirms he spoke to white supremacists - The republican from Louisiana, representative Steve Scalise, is the House majority whip, and he finally admitted that he did appear at an international white supremacist conference as an “honored guest and speaker.” The organization is the brainchild of avowed white supremacist David Duke with an innocent-sounding name European-American Unity and Rights Organization (EURO). Prior to adopting the name EURO, Duke’s white supremacist organization was called the National Organization for European American Rights (NOFEAR), and was proudly touted as a “civil rights” organization fighting the alleged “massive discrimination” faced by whites from the nation’s growing population of minorities. The Southern Poverty Law Center has well-documented the hate-group’s white supremacist statements such as “Jewish media attack us for wanting to restore white America, and they are largely responsible for the ‘browning’ of America. The Jews want to rule over a multi-racial brown America that is too ignorant to ever rebel against them” 
Republicans fail to quickly pass House Bill easing Dodd-Frank. Steve Scalise (R - Nazi Whisperer) has ONE job... - So what does the job of "Majority Whip" involve? Simple, really. You're the one who assures the Majority Leader that the votes are there to pass whatever piece of legislation your party caucus is bringing to the floor. And the GOP, as we all know, have a solid majority in the U.S. House of Representatives. So on the second day of Congress’s new session, when they moved a GOP-supported bill to ease those bothersome Dodd-Frank restrictions on the high-level thievery of Wall Street to the floor for a vote, it should have sailed, right? Wrong! 
On December 29th, 2014 Former KKK grand wizard David Duke calls GOP rep. Scalise a ‘fine family man’ - In a comment to The Huffington Post, white nationalist and former grand wizard of the knights of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke called the republican congressman “a fine family man and a good person.” Duke was responding to a recently unearthed story that revealed Scalise had given a keynote address at a 2002 event hosted by the neo-Nazi’s white supremacist group 
Steve Scalise was told to be sorry - Rep. Scalise: Speech at white supremacist gathering 'A mistake I regret' (getting caught) 
Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner defends Steve Scalise - Turns out it was just a silly error in judgment. The republican party's core voters and the KKK share the same beliefs so it's not a problem... 
Who cares if Steve Scalise told Roll Call that he embraces many of the same 'conservative' views as grand wizard of the knights of the Ku Klux Klan David Duke  ...not John Boehner or FOX News!
The very loud cricket sounds you're hearing are coming from 1211 Avenue of the Americas - FOX News does not care about this story. The cable network mentioned the Scalise story once since it broke for a brief 20-second segment. That’s it. 
fyi Republicans speaking to white supremacists isn't news for FOX News viewers - but could you imagine how outraged the FOX News dolls would be told to react if it was a democratic leader that was an honored guest speaker at a black panther conference?!
but wait, there's more! Rep. Steve Scalise’s other hate group affiliation - Already on the hot seat for speaking at a white supremacist event, the House majority whip also has ties to anti-LGBT organzations. He is also a regular on Tony Perkins’ radio show, Washington Watch With Tony Perkins. Perkins heads the Family Research Council, which the Southern Poverty Law Center condemns as virulently anti-LGBT. According to the SPLC, the Council “often makes false claims about the LGBT community based on discredited research and junk science. The intention is to denigrate LGBT people in its battles against same-sex marriage, hate crime laws, anti-bullying programs and the repeal of the military’s ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy. While plenty of Republicans are against same-sex marriage, most don’t go so far as to ally themselves with Perkins. For the House majority whip to have that kind of allegiance says all you need to know about the republican party 
Steve Scalise voted against Martin Luther King Holiday twice - While rejecting the Martin Luther King holiday doesn’t necessarily out Scalise as a hardcore white nationalist, it does suggest that his views on race are suspect at best 
GOP keeping Scalise 'says a lot about who they are' - There's no arguing that who republicans decide to elevate into a leadership position says a lot about what the conference's priorities and values are," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said. "Mr. Scalise reportedly described himself as David Duke without the baggage. So it'll be up to republicans to decide what that says about their conference
