Bullhorn White Nationalism: Steve King Favors Suit and Tie Over White Robe and Hood

In an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Steve King was forced to defend his white nationalist views, after tweeting, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” He doubled down in a series of shockingly racist statements. “I meant what I said,” he insisted, “I’d like to see an America that’s so homogeneous that we look a lot the same.” The statement was praised by Former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke and leading Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer.

Andrew Cuomo pressed King on whether he believes “a Muslim American, an Italian America, Jewish American, [are] all equal, all the same.” King paused, “They contribute differently to our culture and civilization. Individuals will contribute differently, not equally to this civilization and society. Certain groups of people will do more from a productive side than other groups of people will.” King also expressed concern for Europe. “We need to get our birth rates up or Europe will be entirely transformed within a half a century or a little more,” he said. King didn’t appear with a white hood. Suits and ties have mostly replaced those.

Civil Rights Attorney, Kristen Clarke, wasn’t impressed.

Neither was Republican strategist, Ana Navarro, who rose to stardom challenging the Republican Party’s white nationalism

Former Ted Cruz Communications Director, Amanda Carpenter, said, “Steve King is showing himself to be the person I always denied he was.” I wonder when Republicans will widely begin to acknowledge they are who they always deny to be.

A spokesman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., called on GOP leadership to condemn King’s statements, saying they must decide whether “white supremacy is welcome in the GOP ranks.”

“Republican Congressman Steve King’s vile racism has no place in decent society, much less in the U.S. Congress,” said spokesman Drew Hammill. “But once again, disgusting hatred has been met with deafening silence from Speaker (Paul) Ryan.”

Stop and consider: a prominent Republican politician said western Europeans are the most productive members of society and need to get their birth rates up. Seriously. These comments should bring the Republican Party’s white supremacy to a head. Republicans, for and against, should stand and be counted. But if you’re waiting for rank and file Republicans to condemn this naked white Christian supremacy, call for King to resign or a chorus of conservatives insisting his views don’t represent the values of the Republican Party, you’ll probably be disappointed.

Does this bullhorn white nationalism have a place in today’s Republican Party? The answer is a resounding yes. It is today’s Republican party. This Republican Party is a white Christian nationalist party.
