This GOP congressman suggested Muslim babies are a threat to “our civilization”

  • Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King appeared to publicly endorse the supremacy of white Western cultures, over those of non-white immigrants — again.
  • Responding to a tweet from a European right-wing Twitter account about “Islamists” in the Netherlands, King praised far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders and said, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”
  • Since King is an American politician who does not live in the Netherlands it’s hard to see how “our civilization” could mean anything other than white people in that context.
  • On Monday King doubled down on his comments to CNN, telling them he meant “exactly what he said.” Read more (3/13/17 11:20 AM)

Saw an article saying people are “cancelling their vacations to Iowa” over Rep. Steve King’s racism—-and as someone who lives in a state bordering Iowa that’s gotta be the funniest shit I’ve ever heard. Who is vacationing in Iowa. There is LITERALLY NOTHING THERE. JUST A FLAT VOID. WITH CORN.

Thanks to some racist tweets, JonTron is the most hated man on YouTube right now

  • Unless you watch a lot of gaming videos on YouTube, you probably haven’t heard of JonTron, the boyish comedy vlogger who’s ignited the internet with an extended display of public racism — but you will soon.
  • Jon “JonTron” Jafari is a popular gaming YouTuber — he boasts 3 million followers — who has been making content since 2010.
  • His videos run the gamut of YouTube randomness: He’ll play a bootleg version of Pokémon or produce an animated cover of — wait for it — Katy Perry’s “Firework.”
  • More recently, however, JonTron has been getting attention online for a different reason. After Iowa Rep. Steve King received backlash for a xenophobic tweet that essentially called all nonwhite Americans “somebody else’s babies,” JonTron jumped in with a racist tweet of his own to defend him.
  • JonTron’s racist tweet was one thing, but his live debate made it so much worse. Read more (3/16/17 4:09 PM)

“Our English language is a big part of it. It’s a carrier of freedom. Wherever the English language has gone, globally, freedom went with it,” Rep. Steve King said on CNN on Monday

The idea that freedom accompanies English everywhere is demonstrably false, as former subjects of the British Empire can attest. In fact, a bulk of modern history was shaped by the cultural and military violence and slavery that followed the English language as it traversed the globe — from brutal British colonial rule in Africa and Asia, to the trans-Atlantic slave trade, to slavery in the U.S. and the massacre and forced assimilation of Native Americans.

Rep. Steve King: ‘We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies’
Congressman Steve King has a history of stirring controversy. Iowa Rep. Steve King is facing a fierce backlash over a tweet critics say is an open embrace of white nationalism. On Sunday, King retweeted a political cartoon featuring Geert Wilders, a Dutch politician whose anti-Muslim rhetoric and blown-out

When you see your views slowly reentering the mainstream consciousness <3

Congressman puts the US one heartbeat (bill) away from challenging ‘Roe v. Wade’

  • Iowa Rep. Steve King introduced a bill in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday that would ban abortion nationwide as soon as a fetal heartbeat is detectable.
  • That is about six weeks into a pregnancy, or about two weeks after one might notice a missed period. Read more.
“Scientific racism” is on the rise on the right. But it’s been lurking there for years.
“[Geert] Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny,” Iowa Rep. Steve King tweeted earlier this month, referring to the far-right Dutch nationalist. Given the stark white nationalism on display in the message, it’s tempting to lump King in with his most vocal supporters — folks like alt-right leader Richard Spencer and Klansman David Duke — and dismiss his theories as part of the fringiest fringe. While his comments have drawn condemnation from some fellow congressional Republicans, they fit right in down the street at the White House, where top aides Steve Bannon and Stephen Miller serve as sentries against multiculturalism, shaping policies that have included the “Muslim ban” and immigration restriction.

Rep. Steve King says whites contributed “more to civilization” than other races

In a Monday appearance on MSNBC, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that no other group has contributed more to civilization than white people. Host Chris Hayes, shocked at King’s remark, sought to clarify the comment. King then got even more specific and named the three regions he thinks have contributed th most.

Republican congressman preaches literal white supremacy on national television
Unbelievable.
By German Lopez

US Rep. Steve King (R-IA) thinks that white people have contributed more to civilization than any other race. And he said it on national cable news.

This is not an exaggeration.

Rep. Steve King links Colin Kaepernick to ISIS

Iowa congressman Steve King, who laughably believes white people contributed the most to civilization, went after Colin Kaepernick on Tuesday by claiming the San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s activism is “sympathetic” to ISIS. How did he make that mental leap? By stereotyping Kaepernick’s girlfriend.
