I have read Steve King’s comments regarding white supremacy. They are:
“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
I am opposed to any group considering itself supreme.
Given that, suppose we substitute the word Jewish for White and Western.
“Jewish nationalist, Jewish supremacist, Jewish civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
A Jewish nationalist is a Zionist. Isn’t that the driving force for the creation of Israel?
The Jews call themselves the chosen people; is that Jewish supremacy?
Jewish civilization? Well, there is nothing wrong with that, is there?
So then why do we go after one guy when other people are allowed to get away the same kind of nonsense?
Because we live in America where leaders, who have a responsibility to act responsibly, never do.
A good leader would say, “Well, Steve King says some stupid things. But has he ever actually discriminated against anyone? Perhaps he misspoke. Maybe he’s all bark and no bite. Perhaps he’s tired of white people being demonized, Perhaps he’s proud of his race as much as the Jews are proud of their religion and perhaps he only wanted to make a defense for white people but got carried away. Shouldn’t we follow Christian principles, exercise charity and give the guy a break? Don’t we forgive other Presidents, Senators, Representatives for doing stupid things? Didn’t we forgive the Bushes for conducting massive mayhem upon the Iraqis? Didn’t we forgive Mitt Romney for acting as a shameless robberbaron when he was working at Bain Capital? Didn’t we forgive Barack Obama for starting a civil war in Syria that has killed 400,000 Syrians? Didn’t we forgive Bill Clinton for prosecuting an idiotic NAFTA agreement that has devastated the lives of millions of Americans and Mexicans?”
By the way, the Jews are hardly the only group that calls themselves the chosen people.
There are plenty of other religions who think they are the real deal in God’s eyes.
And there are plenty of ethnic and racial groups in America who get together to promote their own members.
Nobody is saved by their heritage.
Steve King is hardly unique. He’s a jackass like the rest of them.
