“Rep. Steve King (R-IA) retweeted a neo-Nazi on Tuesday morning. He has faced no consequences for the tweet, and the leaders of his party have so far remained silent.
Mark Collett, whom King retweeted, isn’t quiet about his beliefs. According to HuffPost, he’s called himself a Nazi sympathizer, expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and was the subject of the 2002 documentary “Young, Nazi and Proud.”
A year ago, he joined former KKK grand wizard David Duke for an hour-long discussion on, per Duke’s website, “the massive violence that continues to be inflicted on the world by the Jewish dominated left.”
Last month, Duke joined Collett for the 50th episode of a YouTube chat show Collett hosts, “This Week on the Alt Right.” Collett addressed Duke’s critics on the show: “Are they going to sacrifice everything to try and save their race, like David Duke has? Because that is the measure of a great man.” In 2016, according to a Daily Mail report, Collett campaigned for Brexit in the UK alongside his swastika-tattooed girlfriend, Eva Van Housen.”

Young Turk (n), 1. Young progressive or insurgent member of an institution, movement, or political party. 2. A young person who rebels against authority or societal expectations.(American Heritage Dictionary)
Just checked out this guy's channel, because of TYT's long track record of lying, and he does engage in identity politics, much like TYT, but at least he's honest and doesn't have to lie to his audience. Cenk is the brown equivalent of a Nazi because he denies the genocide of white Armenian Christians, and he definitely fits the profile of a Nazi, the only difference is he lies more, and hates white people.
Its astonishing how many sick in the head assholes there are in this world. The republicans have no principles they wont say or do the right thing if they think it will hurt the party for election so they can make themselves richer
Carl Losh I think we should call them what they are. People outside the country are looking at America and looking down at America from Canada and America’s looking like a 1930s Germany right now. So yes I am disgusted that the fact is the nazis are back but they’re hiding under the American flag.
The blatant lies that come out of the mouths of racists and bigots offer solid proof that they are the ones that need to be deported to their home country of national origin. They're not really from the USA anyway. If they're White, they can go back to Europe where their grand and great grand parents came from.
The Young Turks have always been sponsored by the world J00ish racist syndicate.
Even more than a hundred years ago.
The Young Turks(sponsored by Kiges as Carasso) were the main tool to destroy the ottoman empire
after the ottomans refused to sell palestine to the jews
and the young turks(Donmeh=cryptojews) were the driving force to kill more than 1 million armenic people.
Nothing has changed since then
if your trying to make a point Mr. Spam Attack, then make it but you can’t because your uninformed and just repeating things someone else told you to think. Make a point if you can, rather than just shitting out random words and phrases that you got from someone else. I’m rooting for you *Dumb America!
*Thats the percentage of Americans who are dumb, like you.
WHITE (not all) people carry a disease called racism that has made me come to the conclusion that they are not from this planet. You'd think that the "superior race" 🤣 would overcome this stupidity in this century, but noooooo racism is a problem for our Caucasian brothers and sisters. it's like they can't coexist with everyone else. They should really be studied as to why so much hate over color.
jon beatty : of course white supremacists are bad , just as bad as Arab or Jewish supremacists or any other
My point is to hold prejudices and label a whole group for the actions of few, is bigoted , and sick in it self,
Yes of course we condemn and try to destroy if we see KKK or Isis prominent groups who claim to be true Christians or true Muslims, as well as we challenge subtle ones with arguments trying to devide humanity with us vs them ideology.
this dude Neo-Nazi guy all he spewing is bad rhetoric against other cultures can't even look at himself his own generation still sickening to hearthat he don't want to hear it because why he's too scared to talk about his own dark secrets thinking it's proud but it's not the past very evil very disgusting so look at yourself in the mirror
TYT do a terrible job reporting on European affairs, these weren't regular immigrants they are refugees being exploited by people traffickers who were rescued from drowning. I know they mean well & it wasn't the main part of the story but it's still important. You come across as slightly insular in your reporting on Europe compared to other overseas areas.
Saying immigrants are doing better than native citizens doesn't help the anti-immigration rhetoric among poor whites. Immigrant success will just be used to scapegoat the failures of poor whites. "They took our jobs!!!"
Blank I’m sure you can appreciate how the upward trajectory that began under Obama’s term and continues during the first bit of trump’s tenure is quite different from the crash that occurred at the very end of eight years of Bush.
How about common sense. The people we are selecting as our leaders are allowing a man who says that Canada burned down the WH. Hello, where is the straight jacket. We have to make it against the law to have criminals run for office.
Just me 1 It's disturbing because 20 years ago these tweets would have been roundly condemned. However now racist comments are becoming the norm rather than the exception. Nobody, either on the left or right appear to be challenging these views.
Again republicans are a racist homophobic bunch of fascists ok these same morons talk about immigration being a bad thing. YET TGEY FORGET THAT EVERY LAST PERSON EXCLUDING. NATIVE AMERICANS IS THE DESCENDANT OF AN IMMIGRANT THEY R SO ASS BACKWARD
just to make things clear. americans should not apologyce for slavery. that was centuries ago. a child does not carry the sins of the father, so you should not apologice for what your grand grand grand grand parents did ether. I don't see black people apologicing for their ancestors raping, murdering and slavering eachother back in africa.
what? what is the point you are trying to make? what has your grandma to do with this? why would jews apologize? native muricans? what??? I know how to spell kid, I just don't make it a priority when writing a comment. please make sure you write things that make sense, for what you wrote seems written by a cheap old bot.
vasalem my grandma lived through Jim Crow and she is alive to remember ever detail. I don’t see the Jews apologizing for the holocaust, I don’t see the native Muricans apologizing to the pilgrims. Foh and learn to spell.
+Blank nice projection and clear misrepresentation of the facts and the effects of policy.
I assume you are saying the left hates Jews because they don't support Israel and its illegal occupation? If so you are a moron. Anti-Semitism would be the right wing neo-nazis that marched in Charlottesville with tiki torches chanting "Jews will not replace us", not the left pointing out an illegal occupation and the slaughter of civilians.
Next what genocide is the left supporting? I know the right is allowing the ongoing genocide in Yemen with US support. They have also illegally struck Syria twice since Trump took office, tore up a peace deal, gave Saudi Arabia, the country committed the aforementioned genocide in Yemen, the largest weapons deal in history, and expanded military action into Niger. Not to mention the increase in bombing and drone strikes that have about a 2% success rate for hitting their target.
As for the socialism, we want a mixed system like the Scandinavian countries not a totality like communism. Please learn the difference already.
Finally we come to the fundamental rights, I assume you are talking about calling to regulate guns. Well the thing is regulation is actually in the amendment and the supreme court has upheld the ability to regulate guns on multiple occasions, so again you are wrong. Now if we want to look at fundamental rights being taken look no further then Trump using his position of power as president to force the NFL to prevent players from kneeling by threatening their taxes during his massive give away to the rich tax bill.
Big Z Dawg Illegal LOL no they didnt. Tyt, progressive left and mainstream Democrats are the nazi party in 2018. They hate jews and support their genocide promote socialism and want to remove fundamental rights.
Europe doesn't have a problem with simple immigration. The important word is mass immigration. If a big group of migrants enter a country within a very short amount of time, they have an impact on the existing economic and social balance. It influences the job and housing market and public spending. There's normal immigration, mass immigration and a reasonable formula in the middle. Existing economic systems can only absorb a certain amount of migrants within a certain amount of time without the emergence of economic and social problems and political backlash. People who don't understand that are just as blind as those, who judge people purely based on their race or religion.
fischkopp1234 finally someone who gets it. I applaud you for realizing that. Most of the tweets that people say are racist are merely an attempt to save the economy we certainly don’t need another great depression
"the more children in a household without a father the more money the state will give"
That's nice, but I asked you why minorities vote for Democrats instead of Republicans.
"so drop the big answer some things you hears on CNN"
I have no idea what this means. I don't know why you keep referring to CNN. This is TYT.
"you are not worth my time"
Well, apparently I was worth three hours of your time. I'm sure you'll be back.
Sandernista our of 15% of population which is about 40 million and I’m being generous with that number that means 12 million blacks commit crimes which is scattered through various criminal activities would you like me to do he math of 220 million whites committing 60% of crimes?!?! I promise you that number is far higher than the black population itself. Sooo why no airtime about this new alarming statistic who knows check ya UCR again... I could break it down to be better understood but why bother in the end we believe what we want to statistically speaking blacks aren’t the highest rates depends on how you count wonder if we counted mass shootings as murder of each individual killed instead of one incident wonder what those stats would look like then...
"Blacks do make up about 15% of the population"
The percentage of blacks taking pot is about the same as the percentage of whites taking pot, but they are more than twice as likely to have a jail sentence for it and their sentencing will be about 40% longer on average.
So you make up a random claim, all it fact and then demand that either it is destroyed (therefore you hope that your racist rightwing ideology wins by default) or that it is kept and you can point to how dumb and idiotic those who aren't racist idiots like yourself are.
Why are NAZI'S all Republicans yet Trumps son in law is a Jew and Evangelicals love Israel because they are obsessed with Jesus an Arab that is coming for them at the end of the world??didn't the USA beat the NAZI'S
So there is only one republican and his name is DJTrump?
"Evangelicals love Israel because"
Jesus is to them a white dude and ultra capitalist, and the end times where they get to heaven and everyone they don't like gets roasted in front of their eyes in hell can only happen if Israel becomes a state THEN IS BLOWN UP.
John Doe Maybe I am not being clear enough for you. I do not hate Turks, or any group of people. I do, however, despise that a term like Young Turks, is not only cool with progressives, but it is defended, even when bringing up the historical fact that it was them that were responsible for a genocide. But progressives lose their shit when pronouns are not used, or “illegal immigrants”. Hell, TYT was all up in arms to have the team “Redskins” change it’s name because of how offensive it was to a small group. Just be consistent is all, & not cherry pick like some religious zealot.
M Gonzo I come from a place with a long history of violence and occupation both religious and nationalistic ...does that mean I should just hate all British people , or protestants... NO! That would be ridiculous.. you don't have to forget but you do have to move on ..I've heard Cenk talk about and condemn the Armenian genocide .. he said some stupid things when he was younger .. but this show is not about that and doesn't condone it . Do you hate all "Turks" now? Should I believe all stereotypes... are all Armenians "akhperutyuns" .. I don't think so !
M Gonzo so you think the word "Turks" should be banned now? What about the word "German" ...tool Gonzo by name ..Gonzo by nature ..what does the sentence " the young Turks" mean? What do you think it means ?
TYT has mimicked Fox "news" in that they have one hot young woman who earnestly does her homework while glamming herself up notch by notch, paired with a dumpy older man with a speech impediment who generalizes without notes.
The only people who are afraid of their own ideology are libertarians, progressives, and half of the alt right. I am not afraid of liberalism or telling people that I am a liberal in fact liberalism is basically the closest thing to a perfect political ideology.
I assume this whole meme you're doing here is some attempt to get me to admit to being a fascist and if that's the case you're wasting you time because I'm a liberal.
+Brett Strong it means you are a scared cuck that is afraid of your own ideology and want to pretend to be something you arent.
mussolini was an ALPHA MALE, he never denied he was a fascist. MAKE FASCISTS PROUD AGAIN!
Tammy Hibner got an attempt to get me to take a "media accountability survey" (read: stroke my ego, because I am butthurt) from Trumpty Hump at the beginning of the video myself. Dude needs to learn how to do work.
Brett Strong being white and racist then being upset when you get called out on being racist and then calling the person who called out for being racist a racist because you think it's racist to call racist people rscist?
I agree with TYT about slime like Steve King. Unfortunately, he'll probably be reelected. An increasingly large number of Americans support crackpots like King, Trump, etc. This is a winning strategy for the GOP and it will increase.
+Ken93 What the heck's Star Wars gotta do with this?! And Jews are quite aware more pure ancient Jews died out in the Assyrian Diaspora, and today's Jews are mainly ceremonial heritage, or because of intermarriage and believers in the faith. The statement racial purity is a myth is total fact. Can be scientifically proven.
I know you're trolling but yes.... That is the American way. Protect the first Amendment. Don't let stupid people like them take it away, otherwise, they win by depriving us of our rights to have freedom of speech and destroying the very fabric of American society.
The Thing Americans do not understand is that Freedom of Speech and Hatespeech are two separate things.
And no, being against immigration is not considered hatespeech and will absolutely not get you arrested, so long as you do not propose murdering people at the border or putting them in concentration camps or anything of the sort. Anti-Discrimination laws are also a thing luckily.
A list of a few things that are punishable by law in germany:
- Holocaust Denial
- Threats of Murder, Violence, Rape or anything of the sort
- Usage of Signs that are Unconstitutional (Swastika, SS-Runes etc.) outside of the specified allowed usages. (Art, Education, to fight against Antidemocratic Organizations/Movements and some other things)
- Defamation (Basically smearing someone and damaging their reputation without any backup evidence)
- Insult (which is a pretty vague term. Just calling someone Names most likely won't get you arrested if it's not a severe case or an officer and even then you'd have to be pretty persistent)
There's a bunch more. I personally prefer the System we have compared to the one in the US. From what I've heard Americans are even more strict when it comes to what you can and cannot say, not by law itself just by social standards. Germans tend to be much more rough with each other than Americans.
Nazi Germany didn't even come up with the CONCEPT of "showers" until the 1940s during the Wannsee conference led by Heydrich. They had concentration camps since the 1930s (Dachau) for political opponents.
By calling literally everyone to the right of Stalin a "Nazi", you've just made free-thinking people resist against being mind-controlled and word-policed by you that much more. Gonna be a fun few years -- Get ready for the re-educational work camps, where you will get the treatment you so desperately deserve.
why would you denounce what you believe, it just doesn't make any sense to me, the Republicans are clearly showing in their rhetoric and actions they are a white nationalist party it's about time they came out the closet and just be 100% about it
They are testing the waters just now. As the majority starts more actively and positively backing the candidates who are unafraid of being racists then they'll drop the affront. Remember, there's a undying backlash from not being able to call a Coon a Porch-Monkey instead of a Thug.
if I was asked you to define what a racist is you probably couldn't, so calling me one is inconsequential to me, I stand by what I wrote, so if you're looking for a conversation with me you won't get one, so. more on
Republican representatives are complicit in their silence. They are suppised to be the check and balance of our three branch government yet they choose to stand by silently, or worse, make excuses and even overtly condone the actions of these bigoted, misogynistic, racist people. Condemn the ideology or be condemned as being part of it.
The right and proper thing to do is genocide all members of the Republican party. We should go door to door holding trails on people's door steps. "You are a registered republican. That is a crime against humanity. The sentence for this crime is death. The sentence will be carried out by chopping you to death with this axe. The sentence will now be carried out". Then chop into their face with the axe. Do this regularly and to all republicans. Indiscriminate genocide of the Republican party membership. That's the only logical way forward. To be against this idea means you are a Republican in need of an axe to the face.
I have been doing that every evening in my neighborhood for over a year now. I've personally ended the lives of over 6000 registered republicans. The police tried to stop me once but I killed over a hundred SWAT team members with my axe. They don't bother trying to stop me anymore. They're pussies, just like you.
I don't like what TYT is doing here because they're appealing to ethos instead of logos. The tweet that Steve King retweeted itself is innocuous. It says that "65% of Italians under the age of 35 now oppose mass immigration. Europe is waking up..." The guy who tweeted it is a bastard. So what? If you're just looking at substance, I don't think Steve King did anything wrong.
I completely agree with your assessment JL T. The tweet itself is in now way shape or form racist. I have never heard of the guy who tweeted it to begin with and wouldnt of have any clue that he was a "Nazi Sympathizer" without some research. How many people actually do a background check on a Twitter post that they retweet? Virtually none.
This is an extreme far stretch by any means to link The Congressman who retweeted this as a Nazi or a Racist.
That might be true, but you can't glean that just from the tweet he posted. The substance of the tweet is completely innocuous. It's a statistic about a majority of Italians under the age of 35 opposing mass immigration. If David Duke were to cite a peer-reviewed journal, it wouldn't make the information in that journal wrong just because David Duke was citing it. I'm just not a fan of attacking purely on ethos instead of on logical substance. There's no outrage from Republicans, and probably by most people in general, because Steve King did not cite anything (content-wise) overtly offensive. He just cited something from a person who in the past has been offensive.
To be certain, Steve King and the person he is citing are horrible people, but not because of this particular tweet.
We don't have a representative democracy anymore. Our government is controlled by Wall St, the MIC and the multinational corporations. The only thing missing is a dictator but when we are given the choice of 2 sleazebags that both represent the interests of those groups above the will of the people, it's basically the same thing.
sdkeller72 a 2 party system does not work, we need a new 3rd party. But don't count on that ever happing. To much crouption, these crooks will not give up power. They will just keep sticking it to the little guy....
British and French ships take the refugees from the North African Coast directly to Italy, and Austria blocks all refugees from entering Austria from Italy. Italy is a decent country, but it has become the point where much of Europe wishes to abandon the refugees, and Italy's meager economy cannot, alone, support the influx. This is ignored by the tweet.
A lot of the problem is probably due top the fact that I am sure agreement with the tweet would be high among Republicans but the ability to point at Italy on a map would be tiny.
Why be educated on a subject when you can be ignorant and just lie about stuff - Trumps motto!
