Iowa representative Steve King has refused to apologize and instead doubled down in his defense of western civilization and the Europeans who created it.
From the Washington Post:
"The idea of multiculturalism, that every culture is equal — that's not objectively true," King told The Washington Post's Philip Rucker, less than 48 hours after he asked on live TV what "subgroups" besides white people had made any contributions to civilization. "We've been fed that information for the past 25 years, and we're not going to become a greater nation if we continue to do that."Bravo, Mr. King.
The Washington Post felt the need to interject with deceptive lies and propaganda:
Of course, as my eagle-eyed colleague Philip Bump -- who caught King's comment Monday on MSNBC -- pointed out, our society is shaped by numerous nonwhite societies, past and present:This is complete nonsense, the world on the whole was a terrible place to live up until the past 200 years.
The advancements made almost exclusively by Europeans during the last few centuries dwarf all those previously by a hundred fold.
The Chinese, by the way, had gunpowder for centuries without ever using it to make a gun. Europeans did that and they conquered the world as a result.
The Post continues:
That apparently didn't resonate with King, who told Rucker he originally felt forced to defend his view of how Western civilization became great after Esquire's Charlie Pierce said in the same live TV interview he didn't see much diversity at the Republican convention.Actually, it's thanks entirely to MSNBC commentator Charlie Pierce's anti-white racism race was discussed.
White people are sick and tired of being attacked by groups who exclusively practice identity politics while being demonized as "racist" if they dare the respond in like kind.
Like King said in the video interview, which The Post chose not to transcribe, if Pierce had attacked any racial group other than "white people" he'd have come across as an extreme racist.
If we're forced to engage in identity politics just to defend ourselves, then we're going to do so and we're going to do it without apology.
