Iowa congressman Steve King has been labeled a racist "white supremacist" for saying white people have contributed more to the advancement of civilization than any other group.

From The Washington Post:
The group, led by Chris Hayes, was discussing the first day of the Republican national convention, and Donald Trump's history of racially-loaded comments and behavior. King told Hayes that he thought Trump had "modified" his behavior in that regard, but Esquire's Charlie Pierce said he didn't see much diversity reflected in the gathering itself.

"If you're really optimistic, you can say that this is the last time that old white people will command the Republican party's attention, its platform, its public face," Esquire's Charles Pierce said. "That hall is wired," he continued. "That hall is wired by loud, unhappy, dissatisfied white people."

King objected.
"This 'old white people' business does get a little tired, Charlie," King said. "I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out, where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you're talking about, where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?"

"Than white people?" Hayes asked, clearly amazed.

"Than, than Western civilization itself," King replied. "It's rooted in Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the United States of America and every place where the footprint of Christianity settled the world. That's all of Western civilization."

The other panelists objected, with Hayes trying to keep the peace. Panelist April Ryan, who is black, asked, "What about Asia? What about Africa?"

"We're not going to argue the history of Western civilization," Hayes said.
We're not going to argue the history of Western civilization -- which is absolutely dominated by Europeans -- we're just going to call you a racist.



While it's A-OK for the panel to attack "old white people" based off the color of their skin and celebrate their displacement and coming minority status in America, defending "old white people" makes you a *literal* white supremacist -- understand?

I guess by this standard, political scientist Charles Murray is literally Hitler for sharing the following research in his book Human Accomplishment:
