Rep. Steve King said something racist again. This time he targeted a Latina constituent.

  • Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) has a knack for making racist comments. While most of his remarks are directed at Muslim babies, African-Americans and all nonwhite people, this time he took on one of his constituents.
  • On Tuesday, constituents from King’s district traveled to his Washington, D.C., office for an afternoon meeting with his legislative director Jared Culver. According to the Huffington Post, the group waited about 25 minutes for Culver before deciding to leave.
  • Vanessa Marcano-Kelly tweeted about the experience.
  • Minutes later, King responded to 32-year-old Marcano-Kelly, who is an immigrant from Venezuela.“Do you always lie in English?” King said.
  • Marcano-Kelly is a Spanish-speaking translator and interpreter. Some of her tweets on her Twitter account are written in Spanish when she attended a conference in Venezuela. But King decided to use her bilingual skills and talents against her. Read more (4/27/17 11 AM)

“Ya say ya want everyone to be white except Gansey, so why do you fancast Froy Gutierrez as Adam Parrish?” 

Because my guy Froy is actually half Mexican and is bilingual, like my friend @ihopeyoulikevilepuns (sorry for calling you out but you’ve been not so subtle-y talking about me so)

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)

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)

“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.

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

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.

anonymous asked:

i must be new here but whats wrong with hickmans avengers?

ooooooh it depends on what you read about it and which post you’re referring to if you mean something i specifically said. 

hickmanvengers –– fandom portmanteau for simplicity’s sake –– is like what man of steel was to the DCU. started out with good intentions, aesthetically gorgeous, but ultimately colorless, gruesome and full of unnecessary casualties.

[ N.B. in case anyone has only recently stumbled across this blog / comics / ‘hickman’ this discussion (i use that term v. loosely lmao) refers to the latest run of avengers comics before the secret wars event and before the current avengers run of all-new marvel i.e. avengers vol. 5 (2013-15) and new avengers vol. 3 (2013-15). both ended earlier this year in june.]
