There is a Full-On Open White Supremacist in U.S. Congress and His Quotes are Lit AF!



Well, to be fair there's probably a LOT more than one, but Steve King of Iowa's 4th Congressional District is really loud and proud about it; emboldened, I suppose, by the age of #MAGA, heh heh heh! Here's what he said in a tweet today (which I editorialized, natch) about Geert Wilders, the Netherlands' flamboyant, bottle-blonde answer to Donald Trump:


Somebody else's babies, you guys. Restore our civilization, you guys. Who are the "somebody elses?" Well, presumably everyone who's not a blonde, blue eyed, specimen of pure-bred Christian Aryan eugenics like Steve King (side bar: why are all these white supremacists named Steve? Steve Miller, Steve Bannon, Steve King?). So, um, like a LOT of the country. And what exactly are we "restoring?" Oh, yeah. Open white supremacy that's been forced into the shadows for like, seven decades too long? 

SWEET.

In case you're curious, this comment is entirely consistent with all of Rep. King's other Nazi-lite bullshit, which I guess he's spent more time cultivating than he has legislating, since he was, after all, voted the "least effective member of Congress." 

Here are a few more of Steve King's bon mots and deeds, per his own Wikipedia page:
  • He has a confederate flag on his desk even though Iowa was part of the Union during the Civil War, because why not just announce you're a racist with your office flair?
  • He supports legalizing animal fighting (like any good sociopath).
  • Not only does he oppose LGBT marriage equality, he wants to outlaw all secular marriage, because separation of church and state is not a thing in Steve King's America, I guess.
  • He voted against aid to Hurricane Katrina victims, because black people.
  • On undocumented immigrants: "For every one who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds—and they've got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."
  • On affirmative action: "There’s been legislation that’s been brought through this House that sets aside benefits for women and minorities. The only people that it excludes are white men ... Pretty soon, white men are going to notice they are the ones being excluded." (UPDATE: They've noticed!)
  • On climate change: It's "more religion than science." Well, if climate change is a religion, and Steve King is a God-fearing man like he claims, then how come religion isn't real all of a sudden?
  • On "white men" in comparison to "other categories of people:" "I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you are talking about? Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?" DERP. Looks like someone could use a world history lesson or two!
So really, today's tweet wasn't exactly inconsistent with his general view on these sorts of things. Steve King: a true statesman for 2017.

  1. It is a fact that white, corn fed, bible believing men are the pox on our society. Being a male member I am appalled these days with the so idiotic representation by these cretins of my side of the species. Being raised to embrace diversity, I'm rather depressed.
