Steve King is misquoted and loses committee assignments, while Rashida ‘motherf**ker’ Tlaib is celebrated?

The Washington establishment has a strange code of justice that only makes sense to the bipartisan pack of House and Senate members who belong to it, but to the rest of America, it’s a head-shaking phenomenon.

As you may have heard, Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, a champion of POTUS Donald Trump’s immigration reform and border security policies, has been stripped of his committee assignments for his alleged ‘praise’ of “white supremacy” and “white nationalism.”

According to a New York Times story by reporter Trip Gabriel, the ‘full’ quote that he attributed to King was:

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” Mr. King said. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

Horrid, right? It was bad enough for the Republican Steering Committee, which hands out committee assignments, to act on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) recommendation to remove King from the House Judiciary, Agriculture and Small Business committees.

“That is not the party of Lincoln,” McCarthy said of King’s comments. “It is definitely not American. All people are created equal in America, and we want to take a very strong stance about that.”

No, Leader McCarthy, it isn’t, but neither is jumping to conclusions or stabbing a loyal member of your party in the back. Because according to King, the Times quote is not his full quote, and when taken in context, what he said — he was asked about labels like “racism” in today’s vernacular and public policy debate — was completely acceptable.

King told The Gateway Pundit:

One of my quotes in a New York Times story has been completely mischaracterized. Here’s the context I believe accurately reflects my statement.



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.

When I used the word “THAT” it was in reference ONLY to Western Civilization and NOT to any previously stated evil ideology ALL of which I have denounced.

My record as a vocal advocate for Western Civilization is nearly as full as my record in defense of Freedom of Speech.

Well, that’s quite different than the snippet of a quote a dishonest Times reporter used to, once again, paint a Republican, staunch conservative, and strong advocate of border security as a racist bigot who is a white supremacist to boot.

Conservatives know what the Times has always been — a liberal hate machine that sees as its mission not speaking truth to power and afflicting the comfortable, but destroying every formidable Republican it can. And if King’s statement is accurate, then that’s obviously what Trip Gabriel was shooting for.

Meanwhile, MSN reported that as King was disciplined by his party, “House Democrats pondered rebukes of their own” — but not against their own. They are plotting their own rebukes against King.

Meaning, of course, that one of Congress’ newest Democratic members, Rashid “Trump is a Motherf**ker” Tlaib, is going to get a pass because a) she’s a Democrat; b) she’s Muslim, and c) Republican leaders are cowards.

This is something worse than a double standard, but that is the language we must use to describe what is happening to King and not happening to Democratic members of Congress who should not only be ‘rebuked’ but censured.




And yet as in the past, we can always count on Democrats to do the wrong thing.

We’re not sure what’s going to happen to Rep. King. He was, after all, just elected to his ninth term by the people of Iowa who think he’s a pretty swell representative. It seems like his political career may be over, which is causing hoots of glee in Democratic circles and at their ally The New York Times.

We do know what’s going to happen to Tlaib — nothing. Instead of being rebuked and reprimanded for her absolute shredding of political decorum, she will be feted and celebrated as a hero of the #resistance.

Two lessons here that Republicans must finally, painfully, learn.

One, stop talking to the Left-wing media; they are not interested in what you have to say, they are only interested in how they can destroy you (how many more examples do you need?). There are a enough leading conservative and independent news sites and organizations for you to get out your messages.

Two, stop pretending like you can “reach” today’s Left-wing Democrats and their supporters. You can’t, as evidenced by the fact that they have no consciences when it comes to allowing 800,000 federal workers to remain furloughed while they party in Puerto Rico. They can’t be reconciled with; they have to be defeated, period, and cast out of all levels of government, if we are to salvage this nation for our founders. — Jon Dougherty

  1. “And yet as in the past, we can always count on Democrats to do the wrong thing.”

    That’s certainly, undoubtedly, OVERWHELMINGLY True — BUT — & VERY IMPORTANTLY, “BUT” — it’s only HALF of the IMPORTANT STORY.

    The OTHER HALF of this VERY IMPORTANT Story? It is as follows:

    “And yet, as in the past, we can ALWAYS count on THE REPUBLICANS to do the wrong thing.”

    As is evidenced spectacularly-clearly, in THIS case — where, they do the WRONG thing, by Representative King — AND ALSO, do the WRONG thing, by laying “hands off” on that Muslim “motherf***ing” dirtbag.

    If I were Representative King, I would ABSTAIN from EVERY important Vote in the House, especially where Republicans need EVERY Vote they can possibly muster — as retribution & punishment against the leaders of his Corrupt & Cowardly “Party.” PHUCK THEM.

  2. AND, also, when Representative King ABSTAINS from such Important Votes, & as a consequence, the desired Republican / Conservative Legislative attempts FAIL ( i.e., are defeated ) he SHOULD — MUST — make it VERY CLEAR, at the time, WHY he is doing this — so that the Constituents of the OTHER Republicans — $kumbaggs, for example, like Senator McCarthy — KNOW EXACTLY THE REASON(S) WHY their hoped-for legislative attempts have just-then Failed ( i.e., because THEIR Representatives DID THE WRONG THING, AT THE WRONG TIME. Keep on reminding them — what the Representatives that THEY elected, did, when it counted the most. Do it enough — and do it eloquently & effectively enough — and in time ( i.e., the next Election Day ) you’ll have a good amount of your own Sweet Revenge. And NOTHING is Sweeter, than Sweet Revenge, when it aligns perfectly with Justice.

    I can’t believe, in this political climate, that a conservative would not record any interviews with the MSM.

    • That’s certainly an EXCELLENT observation.

      So, the FIRST question is: DID he record it? ( We don’t know yet, for sure, whether he did, or not ).

      The SECOND question — which we KNOW the answer to: Did the NY Times Reporter record it ? ( Of course, he DID — it’s always been standard procedure, ever since tape-recorders were invented — not only for accuracy’s sake, in writing the story later, but also, to use as proof, to defend oneself in Court, should a Reporter ever be falsely-accused of Libel )

      Therefore: Whether — or not — Steve King DID record it — a Recording DOES exist — therefore, in a Lawsuit AGAINST the NY Times Reporter ( for Libel — which includes “misquoting-by-inappropriate / inaccurate context” ) the Recording can be easily Subpoened ( AND, any evidence of the Recording having been tampered with, would be EASILY detected by experts in the field ).

    He might get away with trying this spin if his long history of racist comments didn’t proceed him. He’s known as your most racist politician even over here in Ireland.

    • Yes, that’s pretty impressive. We all know how unsurpassed & accurate the picture is, of who’s who, & who’s what, in the United States, over there, in Ireland.

    I’ve wondered many times before how this has passed with out consequence https://www.nytimes.com/2019/01/15/us/politics/steve-king-offensive-quotes.html

    • I had a feeling that I should check out, for myself, the “article” you listed the link to, as “evidence” in support of your denigration of Representative King — especially because of the source ( The NY Times — as we all know full well, the supreme, unbiased arbiter of Fairness & Truth in Journalism ). And it turns out, my instincts were right on-target. The entire article presents what are basically Common-Sense statements by Representative King, as “evidence” of his “past history” of “racism.” The first 3 examples of which, are:

      “Mr. King, in the Iowa State Senate, files a bill requiring schools teach that the United States “is the unchallenged greatest nation in the world and that it has derived its strength from … Christianity, free enterprise capitalism and Western civilization.”

      “Mr. King is the chief sponsor of a law making English the official language of Iowa.”

      “Now in Congress, Mr. King introduces the English Language Unity Act, a bill to make English the official language of the United States.”

      It’s actually no surprise to me, that The NY Times — & you ( based upon what I’ve seen of your previous & current Comments ) would consider these as “travesties” of the highest order, rising to the level of “racism” ( & worse — given your type’s penchant for utilizing highly-charged terms, such as “Nazism,” “Fascism,” etc, as easily as Muslim Arabs hand our candy in the streets after terrorists murder innocent civilians ).

      What they are, in fact, are Common-Sense, Traditional Truths & Proposed Actions which were suggested in complete congruence with those Truths & Traditions: the United States WAS founded upon Christian Beliefs & Principles; the United States IS a Nation which is inseparable from a Capitalist, Free-Market Economy; & English IS the “Identity-Language” of the United States. Which language do you think the Declaration of Independence & The Constitution & The Bill of Rights & The Federalist Papers, were written in ? These are the Documents upon which this Nation was Founded. NOT Spanish — NOT French — NOT Arabic — NOT Vietnamese, NOR Portuguese, NOR Chinese. ENGLISH. But I don’t expect you to either understand or agree with ANY of the above. It just needs to be stated, that’s all — regardless of YOUR opinion.

  6. Arm yourselves and get ready for Civil War.

  7. Now be a man and DEMAND THE SAME for Tlaib. No committees. How bout it Minority Leader?
