  • Rep. Steve King: 'Diversity is not our strength'

    12/08/2017 2:50:22 PM PST · by Altura Ct. · 50 replies
    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said that diversity is no America's strength in a pair of tweets Friday. King linked to an article by the Voice of Europe Friday that quoted Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban saying that cultures shouldn’t be mixed, arguing that it’s “against common sense.” King tweeted the story with the message, “Diversity is not our strength.” “Assimilation has become a dirty word to the multiculturalist Left. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength,” he tweeted. King, one of the most vocal critics of immigration in Congress, has made controversial statements in the past, including praise for far-right...

    Multiple reports have detailed the equipment and nearly $6 million a Pakistani family of IT specialists allegedly took from the U.S. government while running computer networks for numerous congressional Democrats. But that’s only money and equipment, says a U.S. congressman who contends that the biggest problem is the classified information to which the Awan family had access. The taxpayers’ dollars confiscated from Congress is “not the highest of our concerns,” Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, told WND in an interview about the case of IT staffer Imran Awan, his brothers Abid and Jamal, and their wives Natalia Sova and Hina Alvi.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 14, 2017 | Susan Ferrechio
    The House GOP's staunchest opponent of illegal immigration said President Trump is now at risk of losing his base of supporters after supposedly cutting a deal to legalize more than 800,000 young people who arrived in the United States illegally as children. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, said he stands by a Wednesday night tweet that proclaimed Trump's base "is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair," after he dined with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. The two Democrats left the White House proclaiming they had reached a deal with Trump on...

    King tweeted the following after the Associated Press (AP) and other outlets reported that the president told Democrats he wanted a “quick” amnesty for the 800,000 plus illegal aliens he acted to removed protections from on September 5: Steve King @RealDonaldTrump If AP is correct, Trump base is blown up, destroyed, irreparable, and disillusioned beyond repair. No promise is credible. King, a long-time immigration hawk, told Breitbart News Washington political editor Matt Boyle that an amnesty move like the one onto which Trump reportedly signed Wednesday was “Republican suicide.” That assessment came just after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) talked about the ever-worsening scandal surrounding Imran Awan and his ex-employer Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Breitbart New’s Whatever it Takes with Curt Schilling Wednesday. The Pakistan-born longtime congressional Democratic IT consultant was arrested by federal authorities as he tried to flee the country Tuesday, sending hundreds of thousands of dollars ahead of himself to Pakistan. Rep. King, a staunch conservative and ally of populist nationalism, stressed that the facts are anything but clear at this stage. The surface narrative itself was suspisious enough for King even before getting into the extensive criminal allegations against Awan...

  • Max Boot’s “GOP is the White Nationalist Party” Smear

    Frontpage Magazine ^ | March 31, 2017 | Matthew Vadum
    Pseudo-conservative Foreign Policy blogger Max Boot is making the outrageous claim that the entire Republican Party has been taken over by a dangerous racist fringe. Boot’s insane argument rests on one core contention: that because Republicans tolerate, even like, Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a patriot and a truly courageous conservative champion, their party has therefore fallen into the hands of white nationalists. The fact that King isn’t actually a white nationalist or a racist, which is the real thing Boot is accusing the lawmaker of, in no way hinders the writer from making his pitch. Nor does the unbalanced Boot...

    Daily Caller ^ | 3/14/2017
    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is in trouble with the Political Correctness Commissars and the usual cowardly Republicans etc.—not for the first (or even the tenth) time—because of his Sunday tweet: “[Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert] Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Of course what King said is entirely defensible. But the paroxysms he has provoked says gigabytes about our post-American political class. In his harrumphing interrogation of King on CNN Monday morning, Chris Cuomo said: “It seemed like… you were trying to say someone else’s babies means you’re either...

    IWB ^ | Gabrielle Seunagal
    Iowa Republican, Steve King attracted criticism after posting a tweet which read the following: “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” The statement is open ended, mildly confusing, and leaves a plethora of room for interpretation. King would have done well to clarify exactly what people he believes falls into the category of ‘somebody else’s babies.’ People who fall under the category of immigrants appears as the most likely match for ‘somebody else’s babies.’ Nonetheless, King’s tweet was in response to a Dutch parliamentarian who aspires to close all Mosques and ban the Quran.

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a conservative came under fire Sunday for the commentary he attached to a tweet about far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. Critics on social media contend King's Twitter post is racist and implies civilization can't improve if it's populated with babies of immigrants, specifically Muslims. Mr Wilders, who met past year with Mr King and who travelled to Washington in 2015 at Mr King's invitation to discuss Islam, is among a number of politicians in Europe who have sparked controversy with their views on race and culture. The tweet raised several questions for some - whose babies...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA)tells Breitbart news that he would consider a position as Secretary of the Department Homeland Security. There is a petition circulating to draft him for the post. “It’s flattering and I appreciate it,” King tells Breitbart News. “The work that I’ve done here in this Congress for the last 14 years points to a task like that as something I believe I have the qualifications for and from looking across the list of people, I would say I would tip my hat to Jeff Sessions if he were interested because he is also excellent.

    An Iowa Congressman claimed on Sunday that Republicans on Capitol Hill have copies of the 650,000 emails the FBI recovered from a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner. 'The good thing is, Congress has preserved them for our access,' Iowa Rep. Steve King said before a Donald Trump rally in Sioux City. 'So the Weiner leaks, the WikiLeaks, you name your leaks, we've got our hands on all of them – 650,000 emails.' King also suggested that the number of emails related to the FBI investigation may be larger than 650,000.

    Monday in an appearance on CNN’s “New Day,” Rep. Steve King (R-IA) made the argument that claims of election rigging cannot be completely dismissed. He told “New Day” host Chris Cuomo there was “significant evidence” of voter fraud. “There’s significant evidence out there that there’s voter fraud,” King said. When challenged by Cuomo that making such claims were dangerous, King explained that one couldn’t be completely dismissive of the possibility and cited a number of examples from over the past two decades to back up his argument. “I wouldn’t say it is completely unsubstantiated,” he replied. “Partially unsubstantiated – I...

    Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), a conservative stalwart and adamant Ted Cruz supporter, told MSNBC's Morning Joe Hillary Clinton, if elected president, would be "someone I can work with." King praised Clinton for the way she conducted herself as Secretary of State when she met with the immigration subcommittee where he was a senior member. "I found those conversations to be reasonable policy based because there was no one in the room listening," King said about the meetings. "You can talk business with her," King said. "Whether she reacts to that outside that room or not is unproven as far as...

    Congressman Steve King of Iowa violated the greatest taboo in mainstream American politics. He defended White people, and said their contributions to civilization were greater than other groups. His remarks were in response to a leftist political commentator, Charlie Pierce, who said that Republicans should stop being the party of old White people.

    In the aftermath of the mass shooting of a dozen police officers in Dallas this week, some conservatives rushed to lay blame for the incident at the feet of the Obama administration. Former Republican congressman Joe Walsh said on Twitter that "Obama's words & [Black Lives Matter]'s deeds have gotten cops killed." Rep. Roger Williams (R-Tex.) said, "the spread of misinformation and constant instigation by prominent leaders, including our president" contributed to the killings. Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said the shooting had "roots" in the "anti-white/cop events illuminated by Obama." These statements are part of a broader narrative of a...

    Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Tuesday applauded Donald Trump’s suggestion that the United States force Mexico to pay for a wall along its border by threatening to block remittances sent by undocumented immigrants to their families back home. “I suspect that a good chunk of that is laundered drug money,” the Iowa representative said in a Newsmax interview. King is an immigration hardliner infamous for his 2013 claim that undocumented immigrants have “calves the size of cantaloupes because they’re hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert.” Even though King serves as the national co-chair for Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)’s...
