    Ben Shapiro says Steve King comment is "actual" racism

    Ben Shapiro says Steve King comment is "actual" racism by a Republican... not fake racism like "the left" are always using as a weapon against innocent conservatives.

    What did Steve King say?

    "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?" the Iowa Republican told The New York Times in a story published Thursday. "Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?"
    https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/10/polit...nyt/index.html

    I guess that's so racists even Ben Shapiro has to call him out given that Ben is Jewish and the terrible history of White supremacists and Jews.

    Well, this really angered his viewers on his YouTube channel. The comments are overwhelmingly racist. Many even attacking Shapiro's ethnicity.



    This is the game many conservatives choose to play. They pretend to be victims of false accusations of racism while harboring racists in their camp. They try not to piss off their racist supporters as Mr. Shapiro just did because they need their support. The racists are a real part of their coalition.

    It's not news that Steve King is a hardcore racist. But Republicans reelected him anyway.

    Tucker Carlson complains about "Western civilization" being threatened. Trump says he's a ... nationalist. He never said "White" nationalist but wink wink. And Trump's reluctance to criticize White Nationalists was embarrassingly obvious....good people on both sides.

    Reading some of the comments on Ben Shapiro's video proves that a great many of his supporters are racists.

    I'll admit that too many liberals sometimes insist that something is racist when it is not. Maybe they have become overly vigilant in their fight against racism. But conservatives need to admit that they have surreptitiously harbored and enabled racists.

    I wonder if Ben Shapiro is still in denial about the racists in his camp.

    While conservatives are enraged by a young, pretty, somewhat naive, young socialist they reelect a White Supremacist.

    I applaud Ben Shapiro for calling out racists in his camp. But he's only calling Steve King out because Steve King went just a little bit further than Trump, Tucker Carlson and a long list of hateful conservatives.

    It would have been great if the comments were full of Ben Shapiro supporters supporting him. But it's full of people who feel betrayed by him. That's the reality that I'm pointing out. The denial of far too many conservatives.

    Fair enough... if you can point out what Trump said that was racist...

    I very much enjoy Ben Shapiro's commentary and many of his opinions mirror my own. This particular observation is no exception. One listening to Steve King for the first time would be led to believe that he is either a total racist, or is one of the most stupidly tone-deaf men sitting in Congress. But given his history, the benefit of the doubt can only be stretched so far. He apparently believes that the best aspects of American culture and American values are inextricably tied to the degree of whiteness of one's skin. He needs to go.
    Itís in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, itís easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    How does mine seem angry?

    Is it the usage of certain words or the context of the message...? I think you will fail, as usual.

    Shapiro has conflated verisimilitude with overtness.

    Tucker doesn't belong on the came grouping as what you're trying to pull. See, this is the issue. You want to use this against any other voice out there to suit your interests.
