United States now officially non-White, according to Congress

Eight-term congressman from Iowa Steve King is facing serious reprimand from his own Republican Party, which feels obliged to step in and speak up against his "too loyal" defense of white western civilization and "White Nationalists." It looks like King will be another victim of our misguided 20th Century historical narrative.

IT'S OFFICIAL--THE UNITED STATES must now be called a non-White nation because on this everyone can approve.

With the Republicans' panicky reaction to a New York Times story on GOP Congressman Steve King's moderate response to being called a “White Supremacist,” we must accede the point. In an article in the New York Times, King is reported as having allegedly said, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilizationhow did that language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?” [We are not sure he said “supremacist,” but even if he did ...]

Indeed, King asked the reasonable question when any term that includes the word “white” is labeled as “racist” and thus “bad:” How did this become offensive? Even evil. The logical conclusion from accepting such labels is that all of European and, by extension American, history is evil—was a mistake, because it was carried on by White men only. By today's 'enlightened' standards, it must be apologized for and possibly dismantled; everything must change. Here was an opportunity to have this debate, and for Conservatives to stand up for their values, their achievements and history, and their forefathers, but they failed; they “caved” without even a moment's struggle, showing why Whites are losing this country, and losing Europe too.

You can read all about King elsewhere, like here. Where I want to take you is along the lines of who and what is really responsible for this inability of Whites to stand for the truth and embrace their entire history. I want to go back only to 1933-39 (I could go back to 1913-19 but that would make this post too long, and redundant), when Adolf Hitler's rise in Germany was being denounced as 'racist' and 'dangerous to democracy' by none other than Great Britain. This was because the British wanted to destroy what it saw as an economic and political threat to it's hegemony in Europe, so it went along with the “racist” attacks on the National Socialist state, even though it was a totally racist power itself. Instead of 'race' per se, it first used Hitler's alleged attacks on smaller nations, Slavs and Jews, as its excuse to threaten Germany with armed force. Five years later, when the Third Reich was utterly defeated with the indispensible partnering of the Soviet Union and the USA, the theme of anti-racisim was well-rooted in the narrative of victory. Black soldiers were hailed as playing a crucial role, and western countries began to desegregate. Every policy of Hitler's Germany was labeled as evil and ugly, with the idea of “racism” at its base. Jews were especially rewarded and reimbursed for their suffering under the 'bad fuehrer.'

The non-white world began to flood into the 'liberated' white countries of Western Europe and this was called good and 'progress.' Eastern Europe was spared this influx because the 'champions of democracy' (Churchill, Roosevelt and their advisors) shared that part of Europe with their Slavic partner Josef Stalin, who kept his captives isolated from modernity in his giant gulag. What's worse, these three victors are still the celebrated heroes of WW2, while Adolf Hitler continues to be reviled as the enemy and destroyer of Western civilization. And even worse still, we're too invested and proud to admit our errors and thus believe we must continue to uphold and live with them.

And that, dear readers, is how we got to where we are today and why we are so badly stuck in it ... just as if we're entangled with a Tar-Baby.

Just in: Congressman King has been stripped of all his committee assignments for the rest of his 2 year term, which just began, by Republican Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy. I believe this is to make sure he does not run again in 2020. The Democrats would never do such a demeaning thing to one of theirs! Kevin McCarthy was a mistake; I preferred Jim Jordan for Leader.

King said McCarthy's decision "ignores the truth" and he will work with all his vigor to do the best job for his Iowa constituents (the reddest district in Iowa!) that he can during the next two years. He's not quitting.

UPDATE Tues. Jan.15 : King releases a statement "on Kevin McCarthy’s Unprecedented Assault on my Freedom of Speech" denying the NYTimes article was accurate.

In a 56 minute interview, we discussed the changing use of language in political discourse. We discussed the worn out label “racist” and my observation that other slanderous labels have been increasingly assigned to Conservatives by the Left, who injected into our current political dialog such terms as Nazi, Fascist, White Nationalist, White Supremacist,— 'Western Civilization, how did THAT language become offensive? Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?'…just to watch Western Civilization become a derogatory term in political discourse today. Clearly, I was only referencing Western Civilization classes. No one ever sat in a class listening to the merits of white nationalism and white supremacy.

Why Loser--pardon me, Leader McCarthy would take the words of the enemy New York Times over a 9-term fellow Republican Congressman is one of the mysteries of the Republican Party. It is full of self-righteous hypocrites of that very hypocritical Anglo-WASP breed. According to McCarthy, the USA is not the creation of White, European men and women; no, it is universal. But I grew up in a 90-plus percent White U.S. and up until 1965 it still was. So this 'universalism' is recently acquired. Abraham Lincoln, whom McCarthy quotes as founder of the Republican Party, did NOT believe in it. Lincoln just made some high-sounding political speeches to give luster to his legacy.

We are supposed to have the freedom to think for ourselves.
