|Why this racist tweet of course!|
|Pictured: Geert Wilders and his hair.|
Seriously, what's up with the hair?
That's right, he like's the cut of Geert's Jib. And in what can only be described as a white supremacist reach around-ok, fine, in what I'm choosing to describe as a white supremacist reach around, King's tweet in turn was given full-throated support from former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke. Oh, and to be clear, he's the racist kind of wizard, not like an actual wizard although I suppose he could be both...
|"And don't get me started on the Orcs. If it wasn't for that wall around|
Mordor they'd be all over Middle Earth, taking all our jobs..."
-Gandalf, in a deleted scene
|I say we put everyone's babies to|
work building our civilization. It's about
time they contributed. Pfft...lazy babies...
|I'm not like an expert or anything,|
but maybe if they stopped dressing
like this they'd have more sex?
-Rep. Steve King of Iowa, an actual member of
the U.S. Congress in 2017, can you believe it?
Ok, so he wasn't being a xenophobic shithead, he was just addressing the problem of not enough Germans by offering some friendly, neighborly advice, right?
|"Well, my problem isn't that there aren't enough people in Germany so much as it is there|
aren't enough white people in Germany. It's a subtle distinction, but an important one."
-Steve King, apparently comfortable in his racism
|Pictured: an awkward metaphor he|
probably should have backed off from.
Did we believe him? Of course not. But at least he acknowledged that it was a weird thing to say and even said 'hey sorry 'bout that.' Not so with Steve King whose tactic is to just lean into it and see how racist he can be before either the voters or the GOP leadership calls him on it.
|"The racist vote is pretty important to us, so...I'm going to see how this plays out."|
-Paul Ryan the Speaker of the House
sitting this one out I guess...*
*Naw, I'm just kidding. He actually hasn't commented on this. Like at all.
