Congressman Steve King Under Heavy Fire for “Racist” Tweet Supporting Holland’s Geert Wilders


ABC News

Rep. Steve King — an Iowa Republican known for his sometimes provocative rhetoric — drew fire on social media Sunday after tweeting, “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

In the post, King appeared to promote Geert Wilders, a right-wing Dutch politician who has vowed to “de-Islamize” the Netherlands if elected prime minister.

His fellow Republicans immediately sounded off.

“What exactly do you mean? Do I qualify as ‘someone else’s baby?'” tweeted Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo, the son of two Cuban exiles that fled Castro in the 1960’s.

To answer Curbelo’s question for him, yes you are someone else’s baby. We didn’t need you. You needed us because you couldn’t stop Castro from taking over and ruining your country, you ungrateful bastard.

“Is it worth making the obvious point that what American history has been about is ‘restoring’ ourselves with ‘somebody else’s babies?'” asked conservative columnist Bill Kristol.

Bill Kristol is no conservative. At best he’s a RINO, Republican in name only. Really, he’s a Jewish infiltrator whose goal is to make open borders palatable to conservatives. He is unworthy of quoting or paying any attention to.

Former Democratic Governor of Vermont Howard Dean was more blunt, calling King an “ignoramus.”

Howard Dean? Really?

King’s history of controversial comments

This isn’t the first time King, who was elected to the House in 2002, has found himself in hot water over his views on race.

Asked last July about the comparative racial homogeneity of the Republican party, the 67-year-old congressman responded, “this ‘old white people’ business does get a little tired.”

“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?” he added. “Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?”

In 2013, he implied that the vast majority of undocumented immigrants brought across the southern border as children are drug mules.

“For every valedictorian, there’s another 100 out there that — they weigh 130 pounds, and they’ve got calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert,” he said.

He’s also been roundly criticized for attempting to block the image of Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman from the $20 bill and defending the use of the Confederate flag as a piece of “our heritage.”

King’s office did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.

    Mr. King is so right, that it is strange for the liberals to attack him.

    It is NORMAL for a person to care about himself (make breakfast for himself in the morning, brush his own teeth), to care for his family, his home, his car, his business, his race, and his country.

    To criticize these normal behaviors is abnormal.

    Therefore, liberals are abnormal.

    King is right. Long live the King.

  3. “block the image of Underground Railroad conductor Harriet Tubman from the $20 bill”
    Underground usually means illegal, except with real Underground Railroads. Is the USA now a nation which honours criminals and puts them on bank notes?
    When will Al Capone get on a note, the $100 seems appropriate. Al set up Chicago nicely for another 100 years of corruption. Obamas home town.
    Some Jew gangsters also should be on banknotes. (((Murder Inc))) members would be good. They killed and killed and got paid very well and got away with it. They loved thier work, just like the Jew NKVD in the Soviet Union. Even jokers with names like “Legs” Diamond were Jews. Hardly an Italian to be seen anywhere.

    Maybe all USA banknotes should picture Jews and stop the pretense? Jews lend the money, which does not exist, to the USA Govt which pisses the fake cash against the wall. Then all income taxes go to the Jews – real money. repeat this process for ever. In theory these income taxes shoudl reduce the national debt, but maybe mostly pay interest on the original counterfeit money, which interest the Jews are allowed to keep. Some of the taxes reduce and supposedly cancel out the money created the same year.
