Here's the retweet...



My question is simple...

Did he know who Mark Collett is?...

If he did, the media has a case...

If he didn't, then they don't



It's incredible that journalists won't do their own research and splatter lies all over the tv & print, but then demand the higher standard with non-journalists...

It's incredible that a congressman is so dense as not to know when he quotes
anything about immigration or refugees, he'd better know who's speaking that original thought. Mixed with people who are legitimately concerned with the ramifications of world violence and resulting shifts in populations, are the nasty bigoted ones.

And the assumption you've made is that someone who is considered 'a Nazi' will never have a thought that has nothing to do with being Nazi at all.

Several countries are finally realizing that open borders aren't necessarily a good thing. And it has absolutely NOTHING to do with being a Nazi.

the guy he retweeted is a professed nazi. and as I stated above if you had read the few other posts here, mixed with legitimately concerned folks are people who want to use that feeling to get their own nasty sh*t going. this congressman just helped that effort.

Socialized medicine was created by a 'professional nazi'.

It is VERY dangerous to try and normalize nazism.

You are correct. However, you never worried about it when Obama did it.

So you disregard the truth of the statement, because someone who you dislike as a person said it.

Do you not see a problem with that?

good question, it's a question i ask all sides regularly.
and the answer i often get is SILENCE... or more justification for the purely partisan dismissal of facts from a despised source.

But in this case this guy Steve King has a track record of racist comments that cover Mexicans, Blacks, and Jews. And this "retweet" clearly aligns with other Nazi and racist commentary and groups. Plus the fact that it's sourced from known racist doesn't help.

So frankly there's nothing to see here except the same racial fear mongering that Nazis and racist have always used to gain political power.

To try an act like, or assume, that the "retweet" is just a completely innocent re-statement of a fact and a benign opinion, in light of all the shadow filled background is disingenuous.
