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.
"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?"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?
