Trump’s America: Racist Thug Steve King Spews Bigoted White Nationalist BS On Twitter

Steve King Tweets White Nationalist Propaganda, Earning Praise From Fellow Braindead Nazi Scumbags

You’d be hard-pressed to find many Americans that follow the news who’ve heard the name “Steve King” and haven’t imagined the Iowa Congressman using the phrase “heil Hitler” in a sentence. His racist douchebaggery has repeatedly drawn the anger of everyone whose ever heard it… everyone who isn’t also a racist halfwit thug, that is.

And on Sunday, King donned his stupidity hat yet again, this time tossing around white nationalist propaganda in support of an equally racist right-wing Dutch politician, Geert Wilders.

Translation? King, who in the past has said that only white people have contributed to civilization and that it would be “racist” toward white people to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, thinks that civilization has been ruined and can’t be restored — we can’t “make America great again” — until white people do more to offset the number of brown people that exist.

Steve King’s quote echoes the thesis of white nationalism, the bigoted ideology that the white race is superior to all other races and is solely responsible for all the good in the world, while identifying whites as the cornerstone of society. White nationalist groups are commonly linked with domestic terrorism, and it’s the philosophy of choice for most of America’s recognized hate groups.

Twitter Lights Up Steve King Over Racist Tweet

It should come as no surprise that other slimy racist weasels have flocked to support Steve King after his tweet, including former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke, who praised King for his belligerent statement just a few hours after King posted it.

Meanwhile, King’s shitty behavior has outraged everyone else, like Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu of California:

And Democratic Congressman David Cicilline of Rhode Island

A few Republicans also boarded the “Steve King Is a Racist Dick” train as well, like Congressman Carlos Curbelo of Florida:

And Republican Congressman Pat Garofalo of Minnesota:

But nobody has been tearing into Steve King as frequently or as ferociously as his former 2016 campaign rival, Kim Weaver, who seems fired up and ready to fight King in 2018.

Iowa, It’s Time To Vote This Jerk Out Of Office

Steve King’s blatant, unapologetic racism has no place in modern society. And when I first saw his white nationalist comment, my first reaction wasn’t anger, but sadness. It’s 2017, and these sorts of “people” still exist. Worse still, they win elections and make their way into public office, where they make decisions that impact the rest of us.

That sadness is compounded by the fact that we live in the information age. A time when everyone walking down the street has a mobile computer with Internet access sitting in their pocket. That means either voters are too lazy or too stupid to Google someone before they vote… or they did that, and they actually agree with what this Nazi has to say, which is even worse.
