Steve King the Full-on Nazi Exposed
White Nationalism has a very public champion right now. No, I’m not talking about the Orange Orangutan flinging his own scat everywhere on a daily basis who currently infests our White House. I’m talking about Steve King, the Representative of the vile and evil voters of his district in Iowa.
The eight-term congressman, up for re-election next month, talked to Caroline Sommerfeld of the Austrian far-right propaganda site Unzensuriert (which means “uncensored” in English). Sommerfeld is a prominent intellectual in Europe’s neo-fascist identitarian movement, which has deep connections to America’s so-called alt-right.
The interview, published in September, came to HuffPost’s attention this week. In his conversation with Sommerfeld, King discussed his belief in the superiority of European culture over others. He talked fearfully of falling fertility rates in the West and spoke at length about his belief that Europe and America are threatened by Muslim and Latino immigration.
“If we don’t defend Western civilization, then we will become subjugated by the people who are the enemies of faith, the enemies of justice,” King said.
This tired, boring, and false claim about “European Culture” reveals a deep ignorance of the actual history, language, and ethnic mixing throughout thousands and years in Europe and beyond. There is not, and never has been a singular “European Culture” nor a culture that has lasted without significant change in varying numbers of years. There never has been a language in Europe that has not undergone significant evolution. His racial and cultural fear mongering, his belief in a monolithic and static culture reveals a personality-defining ignorance evidently shared by his deplorable and evil voters.
This country is indeed coming apart at the seams. But it is not the mainstream media “both sides moving more left and right” weaksauce. It actually is around 35% of this country (2% of the world population), the hard right, divorcing itself from the 98% of the world that does not share their very particular worldview. It is the hard right wing that denies the full humanity of 98% of the world. It is this 35%, that include the voters of Steve King, who are Evil. They will be exposed. And history will hold them accountable.
