Rep. Steve King Defends White Nationalist at CPAC

Overt racism becomes mainstream this year at CPAC

Appearing today at the CPAC panel discussion that featured white nationalist icon Peter Brimelow: Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King.

Rep. King has read all of Brimelow’s books, but claims he hasn’t seen any evidence of racism or white separatism.

Washington, D.C. — Iowa congressman Steve King is unconcerned about the implications of his appearance during a CPAC panel on “The Failure of Multiculturalism” featuring a white nationalist author, Peter Brimelow.

“I don’t know anything about that,” King, who came to the event to talk about his English Language Unity Act, told BuzzFeed — though he’d earlier told Brimelow that “I’ve read all your books!”. …

King added that he wasn’t totally familiar with Brimelow’s work.

“I’ve taken so much criticism on my life that has just been completely unjustified, you know, a fabrication of the hardcore left,” King said. “I’d want to see whatever evidence that is before I comment on it.”

When told that the white nationalist designation had come from the Southern Poverty Law Center, King laughed. “I wouldn’t take them seriously,” he said. “No, not at all.”

Again, I admit I was a little amazed that a true racist hater like Brimelow was appearing openly on a CPAC panel; but now, when both the organizers and a US Congressman are legitimizing Brimelow’s sick ideology, this crosses the line into downright creepy.
