Rep. Steve King (R-IA) continues to show that he’s a vile racist with his latest comments that blacks and Hispanics will be fighting each other before overtaking the white population.
During an interview on 1040 WHO, King accused Univision anchor Jorge Ramos for his comment to Tucker Carlson on Fox News that whites would become a majority-minority demographic in America by 2044, of “identifying and trying to drive a wedge between race.”
King added, “Race and ethnicity, I should say to be more correct. He told radio show host Jan Mickelson, “When you start accentuating the differences, then you start ending up with people that are at each other’s throats. And he’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America.”
“I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens,” King said.
This comes after Steve King came under fire for echoing the white nationalist sentiment of Dutch PM candidate Geert Wilders in a shameful tweet saying we can’t restore our civilization with “somebody else’s babies,” in a smear against Muslims and non-whites.
King’s comments that he wanted a more “homogeneous” America was met with condemnation on both sides of the aisle (though more Democrats than Republicans). House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is calling for him to be stripped of his subcommittee chairmanship. The White House is also distancing itself from King as well, though I would not put much stock into that, since Donald Trump was the birther king in a shameful attack on President Obama. He also seems to have a pro-white nationalist stance.
