In reaction to the alleged sins of Representative Steven King (R-Iowa) as called out by a group of Democrat-lite Republicans, the New York Times released its list of what it deems “racist” comments by King over the last few years.
Here are just a few of them, but look at the linked article for yourself:
Mr. King, in the Iowa State Senate, files a bill requiring schools teach that the United States “is the unchallenged greatest nation in the world and that it has derived its strength from … Christianity, free enterprise capitalism and Western civilization.”
My take: That is called “nationalism”: Being proud of the nation we are a part of. This was taught in US public schools until the 60’s when progressives/socialists changed the curriculum to demean our nation’s history and promoted “globalism”, the new “correct-think.”
Mr. King is the chief sponsor of a law making English the official language of Iowa.
My take: Millions in the US believe we are more unified and a better nation if we maintained English as our official language.
Now in Congress, Mr. King introduces the English Language Unity Act, a bill to make English the official language of the United States.
My take: How is this “racist?”
Mr. King sues the Iowa Secretary of State for posting voting information on an official website in Spanish, Laotian, Bosnian and Vietnamese.
My take: When immigrants come into the US, learning English is the surest way toward assimilation and success of the immigrant. Perpetuating the use of foreign languages in government communications is a misuse and a waste of taxpayer resources.
At a rally in Las Vegas, Mr. King calls the deaths of Americans at the hands of undocumented immigrants “a slow-motion Holocaust.” He claims that 25 Americans die daily because of undocumented immigrants, an unsupported and illogical leap from government statistics, which years later influences talking points by President Trump.
My take: The socialist/liberal media ignore and underreport the negative impacts of undocumented/illegal immigrants. King is anticipating the longer term consequences that the media prefers to ignore. How is it “racist” to attempt to reduce the death toll from undocumented illegal alien criminals?
On the House floor, Mr. King demonstrates a model of a 12-foot concrete border wall topped with electrified wire that he designed: “We need to do a few other things on top of that wall, and one of them being to put a little bit of wire on top here to provide a disincentive for people to climb over the top or put a ladder there. We could also electrify this wire … We do that with livestock all the time.”
My take: Many locations along the Mexican border are in need of additional reinforcement. King is taking the initiative to suggest additional measures for border security to be more effective, measures the emotion-driven liberal media do not want taken. Regarding “electrification” of the barbed wire, King specified (and the NYT omitted) that it would not be electrified to the point of killing, but only to discourage. Again, the media will distort words and intent to discredit and disparage at every opportunity.
Mr. King on the House floor, speaking of how law enforcement officers can spot undocumented immigrants:
What kind of clothes people wear … what kind of shoes people wear, what kind of accent they have … sometimes it’s just a sixth sense they can’t put their finger on.
My take: This is called “profiling”: Using common sense rational observation to identify individuals apt to engage in criminal activity. Law enforcement agencies use this tool every day. Liberals/progressive hate this when it works against their globalist/no-borders agenda.
Mr. King in a speech opposing the Affordable Care Act’s mandate to cover contraception:
Preventing babies being born is not medicine. That’s not constructive to our culture and our civilization. If we let our birthrate get down below the replacement rate, we’re a dying civilization.
My take: It is a fact that the birth rate of native American citizens is trending toward falling below the replacement level. Falling native birthrates necessitates the actions being taken by European nations in their policies of unbridled immigration that changes the culture of their nations. Nations that have little or no respect for their existing culture will have no problem with unbridled immigration and the cultural changes that creates.
On a panel at the Conservative Political Action Conference with Peter Brimelow, an open white nationalist, Mr. King referred to multiculturalism as:
A tool for the Left to subdivide a culture and civilization into our own little ethnic enclaves and pit us against each other.
My take: Brimelow is “white” and a “nationalist” which the liberal media immediately casts as an evil. Being “white”, “male” and “Christian” is a particular evil in the eyes of progressives. It is true that multiculturalism (promoting diverse cultures and religions that are likely to be incompatible with our own) erodes national unity and makes it more difficult to create and preserve a national consensus on a wide variety of issues. And we wonder why our nation is so divided?
Mr. King on why he opposes legal status for Dreamers, who were brought into the country as children:
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.
My take: The liberals/progressive report only the occasional positive, e.g. the rare immigrant “valedictorian.” They ignore the much more common drug runner who illegally crosses the same border. Yes, I know, liberals tend to be the more prolific drug users, so this just stands to reason: Call those “racist” who promote the cessation of drug runners.
Mr. King invites the far-right, anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders to Washington and appears with him at the Capitol. Mr. Wilders has called Islam “not a religion,” said the Quran was “worse than Mein Kampf,” and called for the closing of mosques.
My take: Geert Wilders is among the very few politicians who understand and who are rightly concerned with the doctrines of Islam and the subversive and often violent actions of its more devout Muslim followers. It is also true that the most dangerous aspect of the Islamic doctrine is its subversive political ideology that permeates its doctrine. Most if not all mosques are centers of Islamic supremacism and subversion.
How is this comment even racist? Islam is not a “race”. It is primarily a violent and supremacist political ideology shared by numerous races around the globe.
Mr. King tweets a selfie with Mr. Wilders in front of a portrait of Winston Churchill. Mr. Wilders praises Mr. King for having “the guts to speak out.”
My take: This Times statement reveals the ignorance of the Times editors and its alliance with the Islamic cause. While the statement is intended as a “negative”, it is a positive statement for anyone who knows both Wilders and King and the unreported aspects of Islam.
And now the King statement that got him removed by his fellow [RINO, quasi-Democrat] fellow Republicans:
“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?” Mr. King said in an interview with The New York Times published last week.
Obviously, according to politically correct orthodoxy, only blacks can promote their “blackness”, their race. There are dozens of organizations across the land that promote the black race. HERE and HERE are a few. Any organization that promotes the success of the “white race” is condemned as racist. It is OK for Mexicans to promote LaRaza (translated, means “the race”) to reconquer the US southwest for “their race.” The left ignores this.
It appears that the left’s “tolerant” intolerance allows or encourages racism by every race except Caucasians. If we dare promote the “white” race, we are defamed and condemned.
I, too, sat in public school classes where I was taught how the white Anglo-Saxon protestants formed our nation, and how that was called a “good thing.” But apparently the public schools back then got things all wrong. Our nation was settled by a bunch of racist money grubbing scoundrels. Any thought to the contrary is now “racist.” You want to know what is truly “racist”? Our nation’s “affirmative action” laws that give unmerited favor to a particular race, dismissing those who are better qualified, whether it is through our college admissions or our hiring criteria. And anyone who states their belief that affirmative action laws are racist is called “racist.” Go figure. Steve King is guilty of two things: Truth telling and naivete. Truth telling because our controlling elites won’t tolerate the truth. Naivete because King should have known better than to provide his frank and truthful thoughts to a progressive/socialist outlet like the NYT. HERE is the NYT hit piece on Steven King. Note the repetitious use of the term “far right” when referring to people King respects. Such terms are relative to how far in the other direction the name caller happens to be. In this case the New York Times is a heavily biased FAR LEFT publication which favors open borders, globalism, and has little regard for our nation’s founding values.
