“Trump ally Steve King: I don’t know how ‘white supremacist’ became offensive term”

Yeah, I can’t imagine

I can understand that some racists would believe that. It’s difficult to believe that they would articulate it outside a trusted group of fellow racists. It’s totally incredible that a U.S. congressman would be the one doing the public articulation. I just can’t imagine anyone that clueless.

For the record:

A supremacist is one who thinks one group is superior to another. Therefore a white supremacist is one who thinks the white race is superior to others.

A racist is one who believes that one race is superior to another.

In other words a white person who is a “racist” is precisely the same as a “white supremacist,” by definition.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that might be why white supremacism is recognized as offensive.

  1. My favorite version of this trope is “I’m not a racist, I’m a racialist.” If you ever hear that, you want to change the subject real quick or you’re in for a half-hour of verbal diarrhea

  2. This clown is also one of the mainstays of that raid on the Treasury known as the Ethanol Program.
