‘Manson-level racist delusion’: Internet horrified by Steve King’s latest prediction of race war

Published

on

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is taking heavy criticism for making yet another racist statement.

CNN reported on Tuesday that King this week made an appearance on a talk radio show in which he predicted that blacks and Latinos would get into a race war before either group grew large enough to threaten whites’ status as the majority demographic in the United States.

King’s remark came in response to Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’s prediction that whites would soon be a minority in the United States, as growing black and Latino populations transformed the country into a “majority minority” nation.

“He’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America,” King told Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson on 1040 WHO. “I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens.”

King’s latest outburst drew quick condemnation on Twitter, where his outlook on racial violence drew comparisons to Charles Manson, the serial killer who believed that whites would one day return to their rightful place as rulers of the world after a brutal racial war that he dubbed the “Helter Skelter.”

More top reactions to King’s comments follow below.

Robert Mueller likely thought Don Jr. was guilty — here’s why that actually made it hard to investigate Trump

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation of ties between Russia and President Donald Trump's campaign, turned over his findings to Congress, and stepped down from his post at the Justice Department.

His findings were incredibly damning for the president and his allies, finding evidence that the campaign eagerly accepted Russian help, if not a full-blown conspiracy, and outlining ten potential episodes where Trump obstructed justice. But Mueller's conclusions are by no means the end-all of everything that happened. Mueller himself acknowledged in his report that Trump's lack of cooperation probably prevented him from finding a lot of information.
