Steve King, a Republican Representative from Iowa, was roundly criticized today following remarks that he was "offended by Eric Holder and the president also, their posture. It looks like Eric Holder said that white people in America are cowards when it comes to race." Mr. King was making the point that Mr. Holder had intimated in 2009 that America's were cowards when it came to discussing race in the United States and that he, Mr. King, was not a coward and felt we should discuss this where illegal immigration is concerned. Mr King continued to comment on his perceptions by stating: "The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race on the side that favors the black person in the case of professor Gates and officer Crowley." These remarks were two of many that were made while Mr.King was a guest on Mr. Gordon Liddy's radio show to discuss the impact of illegal immigration from Mexico into the United States and what the Federal Government should do about it. In the AP article concerning this story AP has assumed their typical stance of utilizing remarks that seem bizarre and of a racial nature to the casual reader because A.P. has taken the remarks out of context. A.P. and all of the rest of the main stream media delight in throwing the race baiting card when it concerns a valid point being made by a Republican on illegal immigration. Mr. King was speaking about illegal immigration and made the statement while speaking on Mr. Gordon's show concerning illegal immigration. Mr. King is also one of the Representatives that has raised questions about favoritism when President Obama's Aunt Zeituni Onyango was so fortuitously granted asylum in the United States.
Andy Stone a spokesman for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, was quick to issue a rebuke over Mr. King's remarks by saying: "This is just the kind of over-the-top extremism that Colorado voters have rejected again and again, when GOP House contender Cory Gardner from Colorado canceled Mr. King as a speaker for one of his fund raising dinners over these comments according to the A.P.. It is not currently known if Mr. Gardner understood the context in which these comments were made.
I am wondering where the A.P. story is concerning Janis Baird Sontany a Tennessee State Democratic Representative from Nashville? Surely A.P. would like to report to us that Ms. Sontany felt it was necessary to denigrate her fellow Republican lawmakers by saying : "You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can't find out by how they vote." This story was reported by knoxnews.com and further elaborated upon by Michelle Malkin last night and Don Surber's DailyMail. The Daily Mail tells us that Ms. Sontany's remarks were made at a breakfast and in response to a vote on Pre-K. One thing that we know for certain is that Ms. Sontany's comments were not taken out of context. We also know that not a single feminist organization has criticized her for the remark and that the only reports of her remarks were by the aforementioned bloggers and not the main stream media. Democrats! Your name is hypocrisy and media outlets like A.P. you are the eager enablers. So A.P. I am wondering since it is okay for you to spin a story to the point where all you are doing is race baiting why have you not reported on a story that is so blatantly insulting to Conservative women and does not require you to spin in any way? As for N.O.W. .... I have long given up on them rebuking any of their fellow travelers for their comments or behavior.
