Memo to Steve King, Steve King, and Steve King: LET ME EXPLAIN RACISM TO YOU.

I don't want to brag, but I knew Steve King was a stupid fucking racist before knowing he was a stupid fucking racist was cool. But if you're new to the Steve King bandwagon, don't worry. There's plenty of room for everyone to realize that IDIOTS SAY THE DAMNDEST THINGS!

"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies." - America's Stupidest Congresscritter, Steve King, in a tweet that you couldn't not see, if you catch my drift.

With this tweet, everyone remembered that, hey, Steve Kig is a fucking racist. The "Wilders" he references, in case you were wondering, is not two clones of late beloved actror Gene Wilder, but rather horrifying Dutch racist Geert Wilders, The tweet was also met with near-orgasmic glee by horrifying American racist David Duke, who hashtagged his praise with the tag TruthRISING. I can only assume Truth is what he calls his dick, the third least-appropriate nickname possible after "Average Size Or More" and "Totally Normally-Shaped".

And ignoring "someone else's babies" because there are two more Steve King quotes to go, we all know what "civilization" he's talking about and why it needs to be "restored". Because I think any mostly non-racist person can agree that the increasing diversity of American civilization has only improved it. Hell, I'd fight Steve King's plans to "restore" civilization on culinary grounds alone, but luckily, I can oppose his plans on every single ground you can possibly think of.

"You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else's babies. You've got to keep your birth rate up, and that you need to teach your children your values. In doing so, you can grow your population, you can strengthen your culture, and you can strengthen your way of life." - King, on CNN, carefully stepping through a field of geese as he tries to explain himself, if you catch my drift.

Here's why this is racist. I know you don't need me to tell you why it's racist, but you may need to tell someone else why it's racist because a lot of people are fucking stupid. It's racist because it states outright that some people are more genetically suited to learning "Western culture and values" than others. That's not how learning works. That's not how genetics work. I don't care how many times you've read The Bell Curve, it's wrong, and it's literally the definition of racism.

Also, let's not forget that even if you subtract his abhorrent ideology and blatant racism, Steve King isn't a representative of any kind of superior anything. He is, as has been demonstrated in this space time and time again, an utter dipshit. Dumb as a bag of rocks that someone's painstakingly picked through in order to replace the smartest rocks with MUCH DUMBER ROCKS. He's so dumb he's consistently dumber than Louie Gohmert, which is a very narrow target to hit while also maintaining a functioning autonomous nervous system. I don't want to restore any civilization that would have him as a representative member.

"And he's adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America. I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens." - Steve King, aligning himself philosophically with infamous genocidal racist and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, if you catch my drift.

I mentioned, in the item above, that Steve King is as stupid as a human being can be while still maintaining the capability of demonstrating how dumb he can be. He's thicker than that door in Tron and dimmer than a cave where all the phosphorescent bacteria have left because they don't want to be associated with Steve King. And just from a purely tactical standpoint, this quote demonstrates that perfectly.

After that Tweet, Steve King had one job. Convince enough people that he wasn't a screaming racist that he could keep participating in what now passes for polite society. How does he go about doing this? By insisting that white people won't eventually be outnumbered because the black people and Hispanic people will kill each other off before then. Even if you think that, there's no good time to say it, and what's more, this week would be just about the worst possible time to say it. So Steve King said it. Because the Overton Window has shifted so far to the right that open white supremacy is now a regular feature of our national discourse. AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM!
