Dem Congresscritter Denounces Statistics as White Privilege

You know what else is a racist manifestation of white privilege? Statistics:

It all started at a House Judiciary Committee hearing where [Rep. Steve King, R-IA] brought up the high-crime rates of Central American nations that many immigrants hail from. King called the violence of countries like El Salvador shocking, but then pointed out that some cities in the U.S. have comparable murder rates.

Specifically, the murder rate in New Orleans post-Katrina was very nearly as high as El Salvador at 90 per 100,000. It remains one of the most violent cities in the country. The Big Easy has degenerated to the point that part of it is represented by Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), the Congressional Black Caucus lout who infamously made crude comments about Kellyanne Conway being on her knees. He went after King like a hydrophobic dog:

“We’re going to lose all civility in this committee if he thinks it’s appropriate to compare New Orleans to Guatemala,” Richmond fumed…

El Salvador, Guatemala, what’s the difference?

Attempts by the committee chairman to calm Richmond failed. He started raving about the Ku Klux Klan and even issued a veiled threat of physical violence.

“If the gentleman persists on it, then let’s go in the back and have the conversation about New Orleans. If it takes walking across over there, then I’m prepared to do that, too.”

Then out came the white privilege card:

“It’s not appropriate. It’s insensitive. And it’s nothing more than traditional white privilege of ‘let me criticize a minority city,’” he declared.

Demagogic showboating of this sort must please the voters in Richmond’s district. It certainly pleases the left-wing media. Fusion praised the oaf for shutting down King’s white privilege. Seriously:

Meanwhile, no one lifts a finger to stop the bloodshed in New Orleans. The stratospheric murder rates of cities with large black populations isn’t the problem; acknowledging it is the problem. Because statistics are white privilege.

    Ah yes, the “shut up, whitey” gambit…

  3. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Why is the murder rate in New Orleans so high? Have they just hired a bunch of white, racist cops to ignore crime?

  4. Mr. Freemarket says:

    It must be just coincidence that cities with high murder rates are run by democrats.

    Well, Richmond and his party want to turn America into Venezuela for “social justice” or something…×296.jpg

    That thinking and having a better argument is “racist” and all, you know…

  11. Wilberforce says:

    I only wish Steve King was my representative here in Iowa. Either way, we’re proud of him!

  12. Jester says:

    Why the continual disregard of so many constituent deaths? Simple: Because while it’s easy to convince socialists to vote for left-wingers, it’s even easier to make them do so after they’re dead.

    That’s all.

  13. Barformer says:

    New Orleans dumped many of their feral punk obama voters in Houston after hurricane Ike. So Kings percentage is lighter than it could be.

  14. grayjohn says:

    Then how is it that “THEY LIKE BIG BUTTS AND THEY CANNOT LIE!”?

  15. sheikyermami says:

    I get it: a “minority city’ is a city where blacks are the majority, run by black despots like him and all are united in screwing the American taxpayer out of his wits. If you say something, they call you names and give you some psychobabble about “white privilege”. That sucks.

  16. Mr. Freemarket says:

    And it is impossible for them to be racist either!!!

  17. mostly Cajun says:

    That’s okay. All this crime stuff is gonna zero out since they took down the statues of the oppressors.

    What would THEY do without a catch-phrase to go with their agenda?!!

  19. TED says:

    Slowly erasing LEFTIST involvement in EVERYTHING THEY have SCREWED UP…
