Congressman Comes Out in Support of White Supremacy on National TV

Ladies and gentlemen, Representative Steve "No, Not that One" King!



“If you’re really optimistic, you can say that this is the last time that old white people will command the Republican Party’s attention, its platform, and its public face,” Pierce said. “Of course, I thought this was going to happen after 2012, but thanks for the good work of Congressman King, I was disappointed . . . But I’ll tell you what, in that hall today, that hall is wired. It’s wired by unhappy, dissatisfied white people.”

To which, King replied with his handy white supremacist argument, live on television.

“This whole business does get a little tired, Charlie,” King pushed back in clear frustration. “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 that you are talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”

“Than white people?” a startled Hayes asked incredulously.

“Than—than western civilization itself that’s rooted in western Europe, eastern Europe and the United States of America, and every place where christianity settled the world,” King said. “That’s all of western civilization.”

“But what about Africa, what about Asia?” Ryan asked. “Let’s argue the history of this country, okay?”

“We are not going to argue the history of civilization,” Hayes abruptly interjected as the panel erupted in chaos. “Let me note for the record that if you’re looking at the ledger of Western civilization, for every flourishing democracy, you have Hitler and Stalin as well.”
Wow. You'd think that sort of shit would've died with Strom Thurmond and Robert Byrd.

But it does appear King's trying to keep their spirit alive:



In any other year this would be a career ender, but in light of Trump, he's probably looking at a job as Attorney General.

I've learned in the Other forum that racism is a thing of the past and we blacks get too much hung up on history. That being this case I'll just bury my head in the sand and ignore that things like this still happen in this country.

This guy is pure human excrement. I'm sure there are more like him, they just don't "tell it like it is." No wonder this guy filed an amendment to ban Harriet Tubman from the $20 Bill.

Here's how he feels about the president

(Obama will) certainly be viewed as a savior for them (terrorists)

His father's Muslim roots in Kenya and his middle name (Hussein) has a meaning to terrorists.

My jaw dropped when King said these things and then Chris Hayes shut it down and went to a commercial. Bad judgement by Hayes - commercials have to wait when something like that is said by a US Congressman.

Is it comedy? Do I laugh? Is this like Tommy Cooper in '84?

Sorry if we're not used to people spouting white supremacist rhetoric on national TV. Let alone a Congressman.

Not wanting a white supremacist in elected office is paranoid? He literally said that white people are superior. What qualifies as "not paranoid"?

Are you just trolling, or do you really think this stuff?

Re: Congressman Comes Out in Support of White Supremacy on National TV

You obviously haven't been listening to other people in your government.

From both parties.

Eric Holder sound familiar? Refused to prosecute BPP. Oh wait. That group was just an "expressionist" group. And he was an appointed US Attorney General. Who appointed him? Obama.

But yeah, let's just get one crazy white dude, and paint him as all White people.

And then give Eric Holder a pass.

Sorry, I am used to people spouting racist stuff.

Just not as a US Attorney General. Because those people are supposedly vetted by an unbiased President.

Watching that convention coverage and the whole campaign, it really does seem that is the subtext. I was skeptical for a while thinking it was an unfortunate coincidence of events. But if you look around, just a little, on social media etc. this is a real live component of the campaign. It was always there but never endorsed and (almost) always denounced. They don't bother denouncing any more. And it all seems to have roots in Trump's birther nonsense attempting to delegitimize the President.

Re: Congressman Comes Out in Support of White Supremacy on National TV

I wonder how many Black speakers will be at the DNC, pandering to their voting base, telling their people the White Man is after them, and is KEEPING THEM DOWN.

AMEN.

And Hillary supporters will lap the stuff up like dogs who haven't been given water for days.

O'Reilly blames Obama admin. for not pursuing criminal charges in New Black Panther Party case

Politifact: False

Re: Congressman Comes Out in Support of White Supremacy on National TV

I wasn't talking about the O'Reilly case. You think BPP has only been involved in ONE criminal situation?

In any case, let's take a look at that BBQ List Of Hate, coming to a DNC Convention near you:

Gwenn Carr. Mother of...Eric Garner.

Sybrina Fulton. Mother of Trayvon.

Maria Hamilton, mother of Dontré Hamilton

Lucia McBath, mother of Jordan Davis

Lezley McSpadden, mother of Michael Brown

Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, mother of Hadiya Pendleton

Geneva Reed-Veal, mother of Sandra Bland


This is like a BLM protest.

Oh. Oh. Get this. The theme will be..."Working Together".

And this is the DNC?

You do understand how racism impacts the majority and minority differently, right? They are not equal. Get yourself to a Multicultural Issues class, quick. You laugh at that suggestion but it seems a lot of Americans could use a primer.
