…and yet the small-population plains state that sends this turd to washington insists that it should be the first selector of our presidential candidates, as determined by a standing-up-all night contest. How quaint.

Yep all other cultures are worth only 3/5 of white Christians…

“treating all cultures as “equal” would be “devaluing the contributions” of America’s Founding Fathers.”

Hmmm, sounds like the slaves didn’t make much of a contribution.

What an insensitive boor. I am glad he lost his committee appointments. Now, it is time for the good people who live in his district to take his seat away from him also.

As long as he’s working for Iowans I cannot take them seriously as arbiters of the primary elections. Sorry, Iowa. You are clearly stunted.

“It’s not about race, it’s never been about race,” King said. “It is about culture.”


So true. Many Real Americans® gave their lives so we could pursue cultural enlightenment.

Who does he think his ancestors are? Where does he think they came from? Which culture did they belong to?

King lamented that losing his committee spots was one of the “significant injustices that’s ever taken place in Congress.”

Yeah, ranks right up there with the Holocaust, I'm sure.

What I think is interesting is that King talks about the Founding Fathers and yet nothing happened here in the almost 170 years before the Continental Congress, or even the events in Europe during that 170 year span. I really wish some one would ask King the founding date of Western Civilization.

And Steve here’s one from the Founding Mothers

“If there are new ideas coming in from other cultures, we can welcome them but we should debate them as to whether they are a plus and enhance contribute to the civilization that we are.”

Civilization is built on different ideas and cultures. And if civilization should remain the way it is today, with deplorables like Steve King taking up a large proportion of the population, it’ll be a shame for the whole human race.

“If we presume that every culture is equal and has an equal amount to contribute to our civilization, then we’re devaluing the contributions of the people that laid the foundation for America and that’s our Founding Fathers,”

Esek Hopkins was a slave captain. Nat Greene accepted a plantation from Georgia. Robert Morris got thrown into debtors prison.

Has Steve King lobbied to have his district renamed to eliminate the use of Hindu-Arabic numerals yet?

Brown people take note. Your culture is only valuable if you stumble upon a continent full of beauty, natural resources, and a population you can subjugate and murder while you establish a racist economic hegemony. So good luck with that.

It’s true what they say… the best way to damage most Republicans is to put them in front of an audience and give them a microphone.

Steve, which culture gave us gun powder? Then which culture figured out it wasn’t just for fireworks?
