Republicans suddenly being outraged by Senator Steven King’s racism while ignoring nearly identical statements from the president.
Last week, notorious racist Republican Senator Steve King of Iowa, had another “who gon’ check me boo” moment with the New York Times where he said:
“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
Afterward, Republicans’ only African-American Senator, Tim Scott of South Carolina said: “People accuse the Republican Party of being racist because we’re silent on things like these”.
He once said regarding the Dreamers:
“For everyone who’s a valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that weigh 130 pounds and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert. Those people would be legalized with the same act.”
He stated at the 2016 Republican National Convention, about the contributions of non-whites, that:
“This whole business does get a little tired. I would ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people you are talking about. Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”
He posited on a Briebart radio show that:
“We’re watching as Western civilization is shrinking in the face of the massive, epic migration that is pouring into Europe. That’s the core of that tweet. They’re importing a different culture, a different civilization — and that culture and civilization, the imported one, rejects the host culture. And so they are supplanting Western civilization with Middle Eastern civilization and I say, and Geert Wilders says, Western civilization is a superior civilization — it is the first world.”
The funny thing about the above statement is that it was supposed to lend clarity to another statement he’d made via Twitter that received a ton of backlash for its racism. Somehow, he thought by expounding on how us
But now, somehow someway, his comments on white supremacy and white nationalism in the New York Times article are a bridge too far for the Republican Party. They’re the Hamburglar hat that broke Tunechi’s back.
And while they debate a censure, consider asking for a resignation and apparently have moved to strip him of committee assignments, they still rally behind and flock to push forward the agenda and nominees of a man who shares a number of King’s sentiments with regards to immigrants from brown nations.
Even now, the nation sits at day 24 of a shutdown, the longest in U.S. history, because they have coagulated behind his idea of holding the nation hostage until he gets money for his wall — the one Mexico was supposed to pay for. A wall, that is needed, because, in his words, these people are “animals” and an “infestation”. A wall to stop illegal immigration from a “virus” spreading from Mexico that’s again, AT A TEN YEAR LOW.
Now, they wanna get a conscience about the phrases “white supremacy” and “white nationalism” as if overt expressions of affinity towards these ideas are the only things worth condemnation. Well if overt is what they need, then didn’t Adolf
But no problems there eh, GOP? I’d laugh at this hypocrisy if it weren’t so irresponsible and dangerous. And so, I sit between a state of rage and delirium.
It’s great I suppose that Republicans finally found a newly formed just-barely-in-the-cartilage-phase, spine with regards to King. At the same time, I look at how long it took them to get there and their continued support of the Unindicted Co-conspirator, with similar messages and even worse legislative ideas that put those bigoted thoughts into real action; and just roll my eyes and go “Oh y
