Rep. Steve King has gone too far in his defense of Western Civilization and White Americans, many cuckservative politicians claim. In an interview with the New York Times, King made the following remark:
“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?”
Since then, King has been attacked relentlessly by the media and politicians on both side for being a “White supremacist.” The exact tone and context of the remark is unclear, because the NYT provided only this quote out of the entire interview. King claims he was asking why Western Civilization is associated with White supremacy. This seems likely to be his intention, and would be more in line with his past comments. Though he has made explicitly pro-White comments in the past, King has always rejected the labels of White supremacy and White nationalism. That he would all of sudden use this rhetoric in a closed-door interview with the Times seems far-fetched. More likely, the Times continued its policy of slandering all effective right-wing politicians.
That’s to be expected. What should not happen, however, is King’s own party denouncing him publicly. King was stripped of all of committee assignments by Party leadership. King was in line to become ranking member of the Judiciary subcommittee, among other positions. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Minority Whip Steve Scalise, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell all publicly criticized King. McCarthy made it clear that he believes support for Western Civilization and White Americans has no place in the Republican Party, telling reporters, “Those are not words that associate with anything in this party, or in this conference.”
If the Republican Party doesn’t represent Western Civilization and White Americans, then what does it represent?
The cuckservatives’ new Grand Poobah, Mitt Romney, went even further than his colleagues, calling for King’s resignation. “He doesn’t have a place in our party, he doesn’t have a place in polite company and certainly should not have a place in Congress,” Romney said in an interview Monday.
Mitt’s goal is to create a cuck insurgency in the GOP, and wrest control from Trump in 2020. Mitt had to make a pilgrimage to his Mormon ethnostate in Utah to become politically relevant again—nationally, no one is buying it. All he can do is be a thorn in the side of nationalist politicians like King and Trump, while making himself look like a limp-wristed loser.
The same goes for anyone else who goes along with the act. They gain nothing by denouncing King. Republican voters either support or are indifferent to King’s comments. The only people outraged are the ones who hate Trump, McConnell, and even Romney just as much. The immediate response from them was to criticize Republicans for not going far enough. Appeasing the mob gets you nowhere.
Moments like this are useful for shining a light on the cucks remaining in the GOP. Instead of showing strong party unity and support for core American values, prominent Republicans took the opportunity to attack a colleague and their voting base—White Americans.
