Kaufman said, “First of all, I do not agree with Congressman King’s statement. We are a nation of immigrants, and diversity is the strength of any nation and any community.”

He slammed former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke who praised King’s white nationalism.

He said, “Regarding David Duke, his words and sentiments are absolute garbage. He is not welcome in our wonderful state.”

On Sunday, King tweeted that he agreed with anti-Muslim Dutch PM candidate Geert Wilders. He tweeted:  “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

Kaufman’s statement comes as King is doubling down on his despicable comments. He told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that his “babies” comment “meant exactly what I said.”

CNN:  “You cannot rebuild your civilization with somebody else’s babies. You’ve got to keep your birthrate up, and that you need to teach your children your values,” King said, paraphrasing remarks he said he’s delivered to audiences in Europe. “In doing so, you can grow your population, you can strengthen your culture, and you can strengthen your way of life.”

There are no words to describe this f*ckery. I am an immigrant and my children are natural born Americans. So, are they somebody else’s babies?
