Every white supremacists’ favorite congressman, Representative Steve King, was at it again, yesterday, fresh on the heels of his tweet about saving our civilization from “somebody else’s babies.”
Let’s spell out what he did this time.
Jorge Ramos, an anchorperson on Univision, appeared on chronic frat-boy Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show. On Carlson’s show, Jorge Ramos told the host whose actual life appears based on the Pretty in Pink character Steff that by the year 2044, whites in America will be minority-majority—think South Africa circa Lethal Weapon 2. Tucker Carlson could not abide such an accusation, and went on to call Jorge Ramos whiter than himself.
Fast forward almost a week, and in the wake of Steve King’s poor-white-me tweet, right-wing radio was desperate to get King’s take on Ramos’ comments.
So on to Des Moines’ AM1040 WHO goes Representative King, where he says this to host Jan Mickelson (I’ll highlight the relevant portion in case an abundant exposure to King’s words cause a reaction in those allergic to right-wing bullshit/hatred):
“Jorge Ramos’ stock in trade is identifying and trying to drive wedges between race—race and ethnicity, I should say to be more correct. When you start accentuating the differences, then you start ending up with people that are at each other’s throats. And he’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America. I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens.“
What does this mean? Well, that all depends. If you’re a barn-stompin’, dosey-doh’in’, Holocaust-fantasizin’ sister-fucker, then it means that, finally, someone sees the trooth. If, however, you are a rational thinking human being, it means that Steve King can’t help but think the minorities are inherently violent and will turn on each other before they can ever become a cumulative plurality in America.
So, once again, allow me to conclude today’s piece the same way I concluded yesterdays.
Fuck you, Steve King.
By the way…
The BBC reports that Shree Chauhan, an American woman of Indian descent, encountered Sean Spicer in a Washington, D.C. area Apple store and approached him to say this: “How does it feel to work for a fascist?”
“It’s such a great country that allows you to be here,” Spicer replied, reminding us that Republicans will never miss an opportunity to reinforce that they are entirely tone-deaf when it comes to matters impacting women and non-whites.
Here’s why: Spicer automatically assumed that Ms. Chauhan wasn’t a citizen. We can only guess that his assumption was based on her skin color.
So, here’s a “Fuck you” to Sean Spicer, too.
