Check Out CNN’s Misleading Steve King Tweet

Now, what CNN’s social media editors want you to believe is that Steve King is a xenophobic racist who only wants white people in America. Why else would they put this out-of-context quote in a tweet: “I’d like to see an America that’s just so homogenous that we look a lot the same.”

Yet, the video clearly shows he’s not calling for an all-white America.

Right before he talks about the America he’d like to see, he talks about inter-marriage – as in, people getting married to people of different races, and he is most certainly not talking about it as some great crime against the white race.

This kind of dishonest framing has led people to attacking Steve King, which I’d normally endorse if it were something that he had actually done. But, he isn’t saying what people are now accusing him of saying.

This all stems from a tweet King put out earlier that is… problematic at best. As Susan explained yesterday, saying things like “we can’t restore our civilization with someone else’s babies” gets you called a white supremacist.

And, CNN was trying to capitalize on that with this follow-up tweet. But, it’s so incredibly misleading that it hurts the credibility of any claim against King. Why do you need to make things up? Why invent a scandal when there is already one right there to keep harping on?
