Oh, good.

More material for the sequel to Tammy’s book: The New Thought Police

Via Daily Caller.

Social media exploded Monday night after Rep. Steve King, speaking of Western civilization, asked: “Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”

King’s comments came during an appearance on MSNBC, when Esquire Magazine’s Charles Pierce expressed joy over the fact that “old white people” would play less of a role in American politics in the future….

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

MSNBC’s Chris Hayes interjected. “Than white people?” he asked.

Than Western civilization itself,” King said. “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.”….

Media members rushed to paint King as a racist, whose name became one of Twitter’s trending topics.

Vanity Fair quickly put up a blaring headline: “CONGRESSMAN STEVE KING MAKES WHITE SUPREMACIST COMMENTS ON LIVE TV.”….

Similarly, The Daily Beast claimed King was saying that whites are better than other races, in an article titled: “GOP Rep: Whites Better Than ‘Sub-Groups.’”….

The Huffington Post, meanwhile, didn’t bother with subtleties, quickly throwing up an article with the headline, “A GOP Congressman Just Made An Argument For White Supremacy On Live TV.”….

    King took the bait and gave a poorly articulated, knee jerk, easily stereotyped, mocked and ridiculed answer. He did not ‘engage brain before opening his mouth’.

    Expect a ‘clarification’ press release soon.
