    For too long white people have had it their own way, science has suffered:

    A nine-term Republican congressman and close ally of Donald Trump known for making racially provocative statements said in an interview published Thursday that he did not understand why the phrases “white nationalist” and “white supremacist” had “become offensive”.

    Congressman Steve King, who has represented his rural Iowa district in Washington since 2003, made the remarks in an interview with the New York Times.

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

    In the same interview, King expressed a sense of racial alienation at the swearing-in of the new Democratic majority in the House of Representatives, which includes a record number of women and people of color, as well as the first Muslim American and Native American women elected to Congress.

    “You could look over there and think the Democratic party is no country for white men,” King said.

    King, who has forged personal alliances with far-right, anti-immigration groups across Europe, has a long track record of making statements widely perceived as racist, although he denies the charge.

    Really Wayne ?

    The fact that you are clearly incapable of recognising when a news source reports exactly what a person said and somehow say the news source is racist beggars belief.

    Nah Not really.. You'll follow Trump to the ends of the earth, over the cliff and into his top bunk.
    Your convinced he is The Great White Hope of Western Civilization.
    Touching really. Such devotion..

    Republicans slam Rep. King for what they call racist remarks
    WASHINGTON — House Republicans on Thursday criticized a fellow GOP lawmaker for making what they said were “racist” comments.

    Rep. Steve King of Iowa was quoted in The New York Times saying, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”
    The comment drew a denunciation from members of House Republican leadership.
    Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney, the No. 3 Republican, said King’s remarks were “abhorrent and racist and should have no place in our national discourse.”
    Another Republican, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, tweeted, “This is an embrace of racism, and it has no place in Congress or anywhere.”
    King later issued a statement saying he is neither a white nationalist nor a white supremacist.
    “I reject those labels and the evil ideology that they define. Further, I condemn anyone that supports this evil and bigoted ideology which saw in its ultimate expression the systematic murder of 6 million innocent Jewish lives,” he said. “Under any fair political definition, I am simply a Nationalist.”
    Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, the No. 2 House Republican, also weighed in.

    “It’s offensive to try to legitimize those terms. I think it’s important that he rejected that kind of evil, because that’s what it is, it’s evil ideology,” he said.

    In 2014, Scalise apologized after he was found to have addressed a white supremacist group in 2002 founded by former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke. Scalise said he didn’t know of the group’s racial views.
    It’s not the first time some Republicans have denounced King, nor the first time King has said his intent is to defend “Western civilization.”

    “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” he tweeted in 2017. Then he doubled down on CNN, telling the network, “I’d like to see an America that’s just so homogeneous that we look a lot the same.”

    Just follow the antiwhite racism on Twitter mate. It is overt, frequent and allowed.

    It is unreasonable, unintelligent and monumentally hypocritical.

    You clowns are actually creating racism

    That might have been clever if it wasn't a non sequitur and a non argument.

    It was pointed squarely at you, seeing you appear to be frightened of clowns.

    I love real clowns.

    However, you seem to be having trouble with colloquial English idiom (potential tautology notwithstanding ;)), highlighting the non sequitur.
