Steve King Juneteenth Tweet Compares Abortion To Slavery
Do y’all bear in mind Steve King? No, not Stephen King, the man who writes actually good books however sometimes says one thing racist. I’m speaking concerning the former Republican congressman from Iowa who, in his final time period, was stripped of all his committee assignments as a result of he was too racist to be an energetic member of the U.S. authorities. (Which is sort of a particular person being too tiny and blue to be a Smurf.) He was Marjorie Taylor Greene earlier than Marjorie Taylor Greene was out right here Marjorie Taylor Greene-ing.
Ex-Rep. Steve King is the man who thinks white persons are the Michael Jordan of contributing to society whereas each different ethnic group by no means even made it to the NBA. He’s the man who, in only a few years, went from questioning how phrases like “white nationalist” and “White supremacist” even turned offensive to being enormously offended by repeatedly being referred to as a white nationalist himself.
Anyway, now King is on Twitter reminding us that he’s nonetheless alive and nonetheless as racist as he was when he was a working legislator. And he’s utilizing Juneteenth as a place to begin for his most up-to-date public contribution of oblivious white nonsense.
“I spent Juneteenth all day within the scorching solar hoeing and pulling weeds and desirous about what it might have been prefer to have been a slave,” King tweeted Tuesday. “On the finish of the day, I thought of what it might be prefer to be an aborted child. I obtained to see the dawn and the sundown.”
OK, to start with, what’s King even speaking about right here? Is he evaluating doing just a little gardening in his personal yard (which he most likely didn’t truly do, however no matter) to precise slavery? Did he do that hoeing and weeding from dawn to sundown on a plantation owned by a white man who additionally owned him and his household, which may very well be auctioned off to a different proprietor at any second? Does he additionally surprise what it might be prefer to be a cow each time he eats a hamburger? (Truly, that jogs my memory of the time King advised electrocuting unlawful immigrants as a result of “we try this with livestock on a regular basis.”)
King additionally seems to be suggesting that abortion is worse than slavery as a result of at the least enslaved individuals obtained to see a dawn and sundown, not like aborted “infants.” I’m not even positive what to do with that—or any of it, actually. I’ll simply let the high-quality people on Twitter reply.
So, principally, the King of white nationalism remains to be a racist moron—from dawn to sundown.
