    Are you seriously trying to claim that King's statement wasn't racist?

    His statement bemoaning the fact that it isn't socially acceptable to be a white supremacist anymore?

    Really bud?

    #4 she made some overly-generalized racial comments about whites being racist. OK, you got one, very minor, example, but how can you blame someone for calling it out? It was the generalization that was wrong, racist, yes.

    You'll have to pull out exact quotes if you want to prove your argument.
    At this point you can continue to deny if you wish. I don't feel like trying to convince someone of facts that I've provided that are objectively clear on their own and are self-evident.

    I do have one suggestion, however, and that is that you may want to research exactly what the definition of racism actually is. It seems we may be using two different definitions. I'm using the universally accepted broad definition of the word: Racism, also called racialism, any action, practice, or belief that reflects the racial worldview—the ideology that humans may be divided into separate and exclusive biological entities called “races”; that there is a causal link between inherited physical traits and traits of personality, intellect, morality, and other cultural and behavioral features; and that some races are innately superior to others. Since the late 20th century the notion of biological race has been recognized as a cultural invention, entirely without scientific basis.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    In your reply above, you literally wrote yourself that it was the student's decisions that were racist:



    So...not the Democrats
    That's sad, truly.

    Replace the races and political party in your post above and tell me if it could be seen as racist?

    That should tell you something.
    Nothing weirder that believing people want to be waiters when there are literally hundreds or thousands of professions which people would do and get paid 10x as much for a tenth of the physical energy.

    I understand being a "chef" at a Michelin rated restaurant or even Guy Fieri but the overwhelming majority of people don't want to be waiters.

    That's right. Lefties have butchered the statements of their enemies in their zeal to find fault, while overlooking very bad racist attitudes from democrats in their statements. Consider Hillary Clinton calling Donna Brazile a "brain dead buffalo" because Matt Lauer managed to get by Brazile to ask Hillary about her illegal emails.

    WASHINGTON — President Trump boasted about highly classified intelligence in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador last week, providing details that could expose the source of the information and the manner in which it was collected, a current and a former American government official said Monday.

    The intelligence disclosed by Mr. Trump in a meeting with Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, was about an Islamic State plot, according to the officials. A Middle Eastern ally that closely guards its own secrets provided the information, which was considered so sensitive that American officials did not share it widely within the United States government or pass it on to other allies.

    King literally whined about white supremacy not being socially acceptable anymore.

    That's as blatantly racist as it gets.

    And no amount of "but Hilary" tantrums change that fact.

    Iowa Republican congressman Steve King says he's not a racist, but he faced intensifying criticism Friday over his remarks about white supremacy, including from a black GOP senator who said such comments are a blight on the nation and the party.

    For the second time in two days, King insisted that he is an advocate for "Western civilization," not white supremacy or white nationalism. But he didn't deny remarks published a day earlier in The New York Times in which he was quoted saying: "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?"
    ================================================== =========
    King's comments were celebrated in a Tweet from David Duke, formerly of the KKK. King himself said he looked forward to seeing future generations where everyone looked the same.
    And yet his party does not remove him and then complain when we call them the "party of racists". Now I would add seditious for their continued support of Putin's puppet so now we have the GOP as the party of seditious racists. It it any wonder that anyone of intelligence is running away from them as fast as they can? My how the party of Lincoln has fallen.

    Why shouldn't the GOP be held accountable? The other GOP members say about King's comments; "Oh, that's terrible." But then what do they do afterwards? Nothing. They don't primary him. They don't censure him. They don't do anything. If King's views aren't reflective of his own party. Then why do they allow him to participate in formation of policy by putting him on such committees such as the Judiciary committee and subcommittees on Constitution and immigration? If the GOP is truly serious about racism and white nationalism then don't allow people like King to participate in the formation of policy and don't allow people like Trump to head up your party.

    I went to these two pages looking for racist Democratic lawmakers who espouse white supremacy "just like Republicans" and found a handful of black leftist social justice warrior crybabies who want a "safe space" in campus housing.

    Then I went to another one of Beaudreaux's posts, thinking maybe he had hidden the Democratic white supremacists there.
    Nope.

    Beaudreaux, you're actually a smart guy, I know you are.
    This is why I am embarrassed for you.

    Steve King is a white supremacist without the pointy white hood. He doesn't talk openly of lynching black people, he doesn't tell nigger jokes, and he doesn't openly call for endorsements by the Klan. He wears a suit and tries to look respectable, the way Lee Atwater taught him.

    But somewhere along the way, King decided that maybe he could still look respectable by inserting little zings here and there, like "what's wrong with white supremacy?", thinking that no one would catch it. And in a place like Iowa, he's probably right.

    Even in North Carolina, Steve King's remarks would draw fire, and you know it.
    But I suspect he could do just fine in Mississippi or South Carolina.

    I'd hate to think that King's attempted sublety is lost on you.
