WATCH: Steve King Asks What Race Contributed More to Western Civilization than Whites

While on MSNBC during the first day of the Republican National Convention, Iowa Representative Steve King once again said something controversial that left the other panelists stunned. Despite controversial comments like these, King was re-elected to another term in the House.

Charles Pierce of Esquire noted that white people lead the Republican Party. King responded by asking him what other “sub groups” had contributed to Western Civilization as much as whites.

King said:

This whole ‘white people’ business, though, does get a little tired, Charlie. I mean, I’d ask you to go back through history and figure out, where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you’re talking about? Where did any other sub-group of people contribute to civilization?

The comments were quickly denounced by MSNBC host Chris Hayes, who tweeted that he wished there was time for author April Ryan to respond.

As for Ryan, she tweeted to several Twitter followers who support her.

King has been representing Iowa in the House since 1997. His latest controversy came just last week, when a KCAU report revealed that King has a Confederate Flag on his desk. Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad even told The Des Moines Register that he doesn’t agree with King’s decision to have the flag on his dest.

“People have a right to display whatever they want to. But I’m proud to say we’re on the side of the Union. And we won the war,” Branstad said.

King also blamed the shooting of five police officers in Dallas for President Barack Obama:

He is right. I have to agree with him on this. Just take a look at Africa! Food is dog shit and life is crime rated. Even though Ken says South africa doesn’t count, I think even South africa (Which is built and developed by whites of course!) is not any better. Poverty, I’ll literacy and especially “corruption” is rampant. Then there is White genocide in south africa (officially considered as Stage 6 genocide by genocide watch. org). Zimbabwe formerly known as Rhodesia was developed by whites for black people but when most white people left it turned in to a shit hole in black rule and now it’s the poorest country in the world, I heard people there eat rats to survive! Look where the African American leader Obama has taken us into, he took us into Iraq war which resulted in many Americans losing their lives and many are still suffering, they have to live rest of their lives without arms. Our country is more divided than ever before. This phenomenon proves that blacks on average are bad leaders and untrustworthy.

Obama took us into the Iraq war? You are delusional. You have no real idea about any of the major historical contributions to western civilization that both african and arab cultures have given to western civilization. Your “proofs” are the uneducated gibberish that is expected of someone with no real grasp on how western civilization evolved or where their major influences came from. Dog shit? You mean like that garbage you get served at fast food restaurants? You offer hearsay as fact and use it as proof to support you ignorant opinion.

Hopelessly undereducated and a true trump supporter.
