We wish we knew who did this one so we could give ’em credit!

It’s not really big news that Iowa Congressman Steve King is a big old racist, what with his talk of most Dream Act kids being drug mules with “calves the size of cantaloupes” and his fears of America being overwhelmed by immigrant hordes. But King stepped it up a bit over the weekend with this tweet in support of Dutch politician (and racist, did we mention racist?) Geert Wilders in this week’s elections in the Netherlands:

Hmm. It’s almost as if he’s gone over the edge, or a little farther over the edge, since he already hopped on the white supremacist grand wizardwagon last fall, when he wished good luck to a far-right German politician with this cheerful little message of support:

So we got your fears of cultural suicide by demographic transformation and your worries about “restoring” our civilization, which can’t be done with “somebody else’s babies.” Pretty charming! The other pro-Wilders Tweet was from September, so we guess folks in King’s Iowa district are good with a little race-baiting, as long as it uses the right dog whistles at least. He’s not racist, after all, since he didn’t use that one word, and also because he’s talking about “culture,” as he sort of explained on CNN this morning:

He “meant exactly what he meant,” you see, and he’s talking about preserving culture, not race, for heaven’s sake. Europeans aren’t having enough European babies, and if they don’t fuck more, the not-European hordes will take over. That’s all he meant. And he loves American diversity, as long as it looks like the crowd at a football stadium, preferably one full of Cornhuskers. (Thirty years ago, if possible). He just doesn’t like all these illegals (or legals, for that matter) coming here and refusing to assimilate, and also he has completely ignored research showing that current Latino immigrants are assimilating at the same rate as previous generations of immigrants. On the other hand, those researchers don’t have a hissy about cultural suicide every time they’re asked to press 1 for English.

King went on to explain that he really does like the idea of some good old-fashioned homogeneity, because sameness is the spice of life:

Oh, heck, Steve, all you need to do is read some science fiction, then, in which most humans are a pleasing shade of caramel in a few centuries. That may not be what he was going for, though. It’s also rather difficult to reconcile his insistence that it’s “not about race” with that desire that we “look a lot the same,” unless maybe he means we’ll all be we wearing the same Arby’s uniform (no risk they’ll ever go halal). Not surprisingly, King’s Tweet brought to mind his similar defense, during the Republican convention, of poor beleaguered white people. When Esquire columnist and Friend of Wonkette Charlie Pierce observed, “If you’re really optimistic, you can say this was the last time that old white people would command the Republican Party’s attention, its platform, its public face,” King spoke up in defense of People of Pallor:

King: This ‘old white people’ business does get a little tired, Charlie. 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?

Chris Hayes: Than white people?

King: Than, than Western civilization itself. 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.

We’re pretty sure those non-whites did one or two things, like the whole foundation of civilization in the first place, the invention of the alphabet by those people in Phoenix, and the Chinese with their invention of gunpowder and pasta and all that. But what have they done for us lately, besides winning Nobel Prizes and stealing our spelling bees?

King’s message was wildly popular in some predictable corners:

If you’re getting ecstatic responses from David Duke, you may want to reconsider some of your basic assumptions. Also, best reply to that Duke Tweet we’ve seen: “Every time you tweet I’m gonna race mix.”

But King certainly got some people excited, like this lady who sounds like she has to be joking, but apparently is completely in earnest:

Now, before you good decent Wonkers start in with the despair, let’s also keep in mind that the vast majority of reaction to King, online and in meatspace, has been appropriately disgusted. Take, for instance, this fine follow-up from Rep. Ted Lieu of California:

Former presidential candidate and never-Trumper Evan McMullin Tweeted, “GOP Congressman @SteveKingIA promotes the un-American ideas of white nationalism. Will any Republican congressmen condemn his bigotry?” So far, we haven’t seen a heck of a lot of condemnation from big names, although Rep. Carlos Curbello, a Florida Republican, took him to task, demanding King put his race card on the table: “@SteveKingIA What exactly do you mean? Do I qualify as ‘somebody else’s baby?'” We’re looking forward to King saying something smarmy about how Lieu and Curbello’s babies speaka da English, so they’re perfectly American, but THOSE PEOPLE are a threat to “our” culture.

Beyond the domestic reaction, King has also wandered into the middle of a Dutch election that’s already increasing friction between the Netherlands and its NATO ally Turkey. Hmm. Tensions in NATO? Wonder if that’s something the Trump/Putin administration is excited for?

In conclusion, fuck Steve King, and please consider a campaign donation to Kim Weaver, who’s already gearing up to run against King again in 2018. King’s helping her out, at least: Sunday, following his Tweet, she received 895 donations for $19K, almost a fifth of her fundraising goal for September.

Yr Wonkette is ad-free, and that means we depend on your generous donations to help us bring you news of morons and the good people who won’t let them march over us. Thanks!

  • Vagenda and Pee-ara

    I’m glad we don’t have any of our Wonkette wimminz with a handle like “WifeWithAPurpose” or “CindysMom” or “MACatholicMom.” Inevitably those women define themselves with their ability to give birth to another human. I realize that’s a rare gift, that only billions of other women have, but does it have to be your ENTIRE identity?

    Also, “WifeWithAPurpose’s” little girl’s Nazi hair braids are kind of creepy.

      • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        I’d rather not imagine that, thank you very much!

        • Résistance Land Shark Ω

          Sorry, I didn’t mean to upset your breakfast. I have met many married women who solely identify this way. I find it hard to understand, but, then again, I’m not in their shoes. I can’t imagine that narrow a worldview.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            It’s especially sad when their husband comes home and announces he’s leaving them for a younger woman. I’d never want to be in that position.

          • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

            Try getting back into the workforce after a few years, also. My work hired a few 40 year old interns who had been managers 10 years ago.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            I’m going through that right now! People really don’t want to hire you after your 50, which I’ve never understood. Do they think when they hire a 30 year old that the person is going to stay with them for the next 20 years? Most people change jobs after a few years, so why not hire an older person who might only be with you ten years? Maybe it has something to do with health insurance.

          • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

            And just prejudice. I cringe when I remember how at 30, I thought 50 year olds were dumb, slow, and annoying. Now I see it was actually wisdom and experience.

          • Résistance Land Shark Ω

    • Anna Elizabeth

      Talking with a nice neighbor, back when I came out. She was Mormon, and an at-home Mom raising her 2 kids. When I told her I am a Feminist, she got defensive about being a stay-home-Mother, and I told her my idea of Feminism is that each woman makes her choice of what to do with her life, and that we should celebrate that.

      She said she was happy with her choice, and I said I’m happily making my choices now.

      • Lance Thrustwell

        I choose to be happy about your choices! And hers too I suppose. But mostly yours.

      • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        I don’t have a problem with anyone being a wife and/or mother. It’s just sad that people base their ENTIRE lives around being a mother, like they have no identity of their own. It’s great that you’re “Cindy’s mom,” but you’re so tied in to that that your internet persona has to reflect that? I just find it a bit sad. What do you do when Cindy grows up? I guess you just cease to have any value.

        • Anna Elizabeth

          Definitely. It’s sad if anyone defines their life around one thing, one trait, one goal.

          • SweetDeeKat

            My pokemon go name is perpetualmom. Not because I’m proud, but am weary of trying to get my boys launched out of the house.

          • Vagenda and Pee-ara

            Agreed. I’ve known gay people whose whole identity is tied up in being gay. I’m gay, but it’s not my whole life, just like being a mommy wouldn’t be if I had kids.

          • Anna Elizabeth

            Exactly. I have my Baby Girl, I’m Bisexual, but I am also a lot of other things. I’d never want to be “Anna, that Gay Girl”, or “Anna, housewife and mother” as my whole thing.

        • Claire

          Then you either become CindyJrsGrandma or you start nagging your kids to give you grandchildren so you can have a new screen name.

      • Vagenda of Rebel Scum

        The Mommy Wars are so 1990’s. I don’t miss them one bit.

        • Anna Elizabeth

          Indeed. We weren’t even talking about children at the moment, more about clothing and such. As soon as I said “Feminist”, she got defensive.

          And she was really nice. She and her hubby supported my coming out, she gave me scarves and such as a gift to celebrate.

          But it was knee-jerk from her upon hearing te word “Feminist”.

      • SadDemInTex

        You are wonderful

    • Claire

      The whole thing of referring to women as “moms” as if that were their sole important characteristic just creeps me out. I had a friend who was so into the whole mom social identity, and her kid was a neurotic, overscheduled mess.

      • Vagenda and Pee-ara

        I also know someone like that. It’s like they don’t have any kind of life, so they focus all their energy on their kid, and the poor kid is just a stressed out mess.

    • Rick Hill

      Being a slut but having a purpose in life. Something like that? Fcking for Jeebus?

    “I’d like to see an America that’s so homogenous that we look a lot the same.”

    I CAN’T EVEN! That is such a boring fucking idea. Steve King should STFU and retire to a boring gated community and only come out to go to Branson, Missouri for live concerts and die happy, while the rest of us enjoy the spices of life! No salsa for Steve: only ketchup.

      Ketchup would be too spicy for him. Just mayonnaise.

      I read an article the other day about how something about Trump’s work visa stuff is going to cut into the seasonal workers who come to work at Branson during the tourist season. Apparently the locals don’t want to do the jobs because they don’t pay well.

      • Mike Steele

        Expecting that on Delmarva as well. Charter boat mates, boardwalk concession & ride operators, seasonal hotel staff, etc. has primarily been summer immigrants for years. When I was growing up, you’d beg your parents to let you go ‘downy ocean, hon’ to live eight in a cramped apt., work 2nd shift at a crab house, party all night and sleep on the beach in the morning. Now, parents send their underage spawn down here, paid for & unaccompanied, to wreak havoc. While I’m at it, get off my lawn:)

    • data_ninja

      The Twilight zone episode is titled “Number 12 looks just like you!” It was very good, and still speaks truth to this day (as most of the episodes do). Also, everyone has to wear a name tag because they can’t tell each other apart that well.

    • SweetDeeKat

      Awhile ago I realized why I feel good in my local Costco – the crowd is as multicolored as an everything bagel. I’m white and am uncomfortable with all-white masses. Something to do with religion growing up, I think.

  • Ghenghis McCann

    Never had a problem with immigrants assimilating here.

    • The Wanderer

      Nope, never had. Despite a lot of tsuris from the ones who’d already been here a while.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      “Assimilation” works both ways, which is the problem for pasty morans like Estevan. Those immigrants bring ideas, cuisines, music, words and so much more with them that not only makes our collective culture more interesting, but also makes it more resilient and enduring. I haven’t even touched on the fusion effect…

      Something new terrifies cowardly little shits like Estevan. Motherfucker is afraid of his own shadow. It is, after all, darker than he is…

    • Villago Delenda Est

      And the major problem with this attitude is it misses the point. You know, the “all men are created equal” part, and the desire to let all men live in a land where they can live, enjoy liberty, and pursue happiness. Even if that happiness involves shawarma.

    • Stulexington

      It’s simple, they want to go back to the days when they could coast on the hard work of progressives before them that built unions and forced wage and labour laws. They want someone to give it back to them because they’ll be damned if they actually work for it.

      All the racist stuff comes from people blaming a convenient scapegoat (outsiders) and them buying it hook line and sinker (because racism is kinda reflexive to a lot of them).

  • Juan de Fuca

    Slightly O/T, but since we’re talking about preserving culture, a bit of good news from Mosul today:

    In February 2015, ISIS posted a video online showing men with sledgehammers and jackhammers destroying one of the museum’s lamassu, and other relics, while others can be seen toppling statue after statue. In typical ISIS fashion, this madness has been edited to include pious songs about idol-smashing in the name of God.[…]

    When the ISIS video was first posted, archaeologists and others reacted with shock and dismay. But scrutiny of the video revealed that many of the statues weren’t stone, but plaster.[bold edit]

    In early 2014, months before ISIS’ lightning seizure of Mosul in June of the same year, around 1,700 items from the museum’s total collection of 2,400 were moved to Baghdad, not because anyone had any inkling of what was to come, but because the Mosul Museum was set for a major facelift.

    In other words, many of the statues smashed by sledgehammer-wielding ISIS fanatics were fakes. A quarter of the museum’s collection is lost, like the massive lamassu, but the rest got away.

    In this brief window when scientists can still be heard, they should make a bigger effort to point out that biologically – race is an artificial construct. Region of origin is a more useful distinction from a scientific perspective.

      Back in my grandmother’s day (she was born in 1899 so….), there was a great push to “Anglicize” the pronunciation of cities like Los Angeles.

      • tomamitai

        Isn’t it already Anglicized with the soft “g”, instead of the “h” sound it has in Spanish?

    Is this also a Jew? was my first thought.

    At Linz they certainly did not look like that. Secretly
    and cautiously I watched the man, but the longer I stared
    at this strange face and scrutinized one feature after the
    other, the more my mind reshaped the first question into

    http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/3/13/14750528/barack-obama-trump-post-presidency

    But even as Obama tries to transcend partisanship, his jokes suggest political aims. This is the tension that already dominates his post-presidency, as revealed by interviews with six current and former aides to the former president: Obama wants to rise above the partisan muck, but he’s also eager to accomplish goals that are inescapably political in nature.

    His team has a workaround. Obama’s aides say he believes that if he can take politically neutral steps to improve democracy — by bringing people together through “civic engagement,” or by giving grassroots activists the tools for community organizing — then that will change the political landscape that culminated in Donald Trump’s election, while also keeping Obama himself above the fray.

    • Sister the Resister

      Bookish, may I suggest that you put quote marks or

      tags around excerpts from your links? Kind of confusing – I thought those comments above were yours, and then when I read the article, found they are actually from its content.

      The article is interesting. Obama is consistent in his approach, even in his post-presidency advice and foundation roles: looking for that more subtle alliance between opposing parties, rather than an all-out fight.

    AM I the only one who suddenly wondered “Hey, does Steve King mean himself as having all the white babies?” Because it sounds like a classic tactic for sublimating desires for power and sex, but then again it could be he honestly believes it for “the Western civilization race” rather than his own sinful desires.

    But compared to the other environmental news that has lately come out of the Trump administration, Pruitt’s comments are of surprisingly little immediate importance. That’s because, over the past three weeks, the White House and its new political appointees have begun to roll out a comprehensive environmental and energy policy. It is broad, creative, and industry-backed. To those who accept the mainstream consensus on climate change, there can only be one conclusion: The Trump administration has begun a sustained assault on Earth’s climate.

    This war will start in earnest on Tuesday, when early reports from E&E News indicate that President Trump will sign an executive order repealing the Clean Power Plan, the landmark regulation issued by the Obama administration that restricted greenhouse-gas emissions from power plants. These same reports suggest that Trump will not direct the EPA to formulate a replacement plan.

    This sort of bigoted nonsense merely serves to underline the need for decent history teaching. This racist arse was brought up in an era when he probably was taught that all good things in the modern world were invented by white people. This is not an excuse- the man is an adult and must surely have eyes in his head to see that there’s loads of stuff in the world which isn’t rooted in western culture, but because he’s a racist, he chooses to avert his gaze from the truth.
    Good history teaching will help avoid this for current and future generations. They may still decide to be racist fools, but they will have had a better chance at developing into decent human beings.

            Agreed. But that is really indoctrination based on poor social skills. OT/ you should change your name to King Julian.

          • MeerkatsRMammals

            Because I like to move it, move it?

          • Red Bird Ω

            Yes!

          • CriticalDragon1177

            Only when it is taught. Racism is not genetic. It is learned behavior, what is learned can be unlearned.

          • MeerkatsRMammals

            Oh, I know…I meant inherited as in passed down from one generation to the next. For instance, my grandparents & parents were racists. Then I said, “nope”. Now I teach my kids to respect everyone.

            Now I have that damned song playing in my head….

        • CriticalDragon1177

          Also a lot of the accomplishments of black people have been ignored or even denied on the grounds that black people couldn’t have invented anything of value, on the grounds that they were an “inferior race”

        Black people accomplished peanuts. Seriously, George Washington Carver did amazing stuff with them. In Ames, so there’s some Iowa-related Nice Time to balance out Steve Thing.

      Re Jesus: You’ll have to admit there’s got to be something special when a pale skinned white guy can work outside all day under a boiling middle eastern sun and not get sunburned.
      Didn’t need sunscreen either nor did those fishermen who decided to follow him.
      Now, if that’s not a triumph of western civilization, what is?

  • GHERKINS OF RESTIVENESS!

    Cultural suicide?
    So, we’re supposed to believe there’s culture in southwestern Iowa??

    COOL STORY, BRO.

    • Old town Urbandale

      Northwest Iowa. Southwest Iowa is represented by David Young, who fits the “bland white guy from Iowa” stereotype.

  • MeerkatsRMammals

    Ok, I get that Steve King doesn’t see many other colors in Iowa aside from lily white & yellow corn. Lemme tell ya, bub…the country’s a big place, full of many other cultures, colors & ideals.

  • LesBontemps

    You are wrong, Dok: It’s the Putin/Trump Administration.

      Putin/Bannon!Trump Administration, if you wanna get technical.

  • tapp_my_wire,please

    Rep King represents ~ 700k western Iowans where everyone is white except that family that runs the Asian take-out and the 5 black guys in the Percy Sledge cover band that do weddings.

    • Red Bird Ω

      Do they know that Iowa is an indigenous American name and that corn was first cultivated by those same indigenous Americans?

    • phoenix00

      Asian take-out place is probably white AF too.

  • UnsaltedSinner

    Isn’t this diverse and exciting enough, people? What more could you possibly want?

      Can that stuff fill the cracks in the Oroville Dam’s spillway?

  • tapp_my_wire,please

    Hope Steve worked on the correct pronunciation of ‘happy ending?’ in Mandarin:
    King allegedly tried to arrange for a “Chinese masseuse” to be sent to his room while he was staying in Moscow.

  • SayItWithOtters

    How exactly do these people think this country has maintained its economic, diplomatic, military, scientific/technological, etc etc superiority over these many decades? It’s all just a present from Jesus? Having a master race of white kids homeschooled with nothing but Christian coloring books is not going to keep this ship afloat.

    Oh and BTW, if tyou belong to a political party actively trying to close the NEA you no longer get to use the word culture, and/or we get to point and laugh at you when you do. Kthxbai

    • Scrofula

      Even “cultured buttermilk” is a little too off-white for these guys.

  • Scrofula

    You kinda have to include Islam with WESTERN CIV, too, what with being rooted in the same One God as Christianity and Judaism, with the same cosmology and sense of time. Islam is pretty inseparable from the history of Europe.
    Otherwise you have to exclude Eastern Europe and the Caucuses too, what with their Byzantium roots and for some reason being smart enough to quit the dick tip-snipping.

    • Left Coast Tom

      It’s also a little hard to explain those buildings in Granada without discussing Islam.

      • Scrofula

        I’m sure that dude thinks Spain doesn’t count. He probably reluctantly includes Italy, just for that whole “Rome” thing.

    • Name one good thing that the Arabs ever gave us.

      Other than algebra.

      And the concept of “zero.”

      And the astrolabe. And the magnetic needle.

      And the harp, lyre, zither, drum, tambourine, flute, oboe and reed instruments.

      And the development of modern optics.

      And the preservation of classical “western” knowledge.

      Other than that, what did the Arabs ever do for civilization?!

      • “M”
      • Scrofula

        Listened today to a lecture about how the Persian (never call a Persian an Arab) Zoroastrians basically planted the seeds of the Judaism that led to Christianity, during the Judean exile in Babylon and its Persian occupation. So you might argue we owe Western Civ to the Iranians.
        (Of course, it REALLY all goes back to Zog the Australophithecine, who looked up at the stars and predicted WalMart.)

    Help me understand what’s wrong with a bunch of Muslims in the Netherlands shouting “God is great”?

    Sounds like a lot of Tennessee on Sunday morning.

    Dear “Fly-Over Country”: if you’re feeling insulted by the moniker the best response would be to give us coastal liberal elitist liberals a reason to land. Steve King (R-Melonhead) has the opposite effect.

    A friend of mine, who grew up in western Iowa (not Steve King’s district) said the state was multi-cultural… they had Swedish Lutherans and Norweigan Luterans.
