To our mind, there are no bigger villains (or smaller human beings) in Congress than Iowa Republican Rep. Steve "Cantaloupe Calves" King (R- Nuremberg Laws). An outspoken bigot, homophobe, global warming denier and all- around ignoramus, his slack- jawed constituents have nevertheless returned King to Congress for the past 14 years, apparently being o.k. with this steaming pile of a person representing them. (On every major issue, King takes a mainstream Republican position -- i.e., the most extreme right- wing position possible.)
Today, in keeping with his villainy, he tweeted this about Dutch neo- Nazi Geert Wilders' views on racial purity:
Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies. https://t.co/4nxLipafWO— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) March 12, 2017
"Culture and demographics are our destiny?" That sounded better in the original German (h/t Molly Ivins).
"Someone else's babies?" Keep in mind, this is someone who is a radical "pro- lifer," even opposing stem cell research. Good to see his concern for life ends at birth.
Considering King displays a Confederate flag in his office, this should come as no surprise:

This is a US Congressman. White supremacy & grotesque nativism have snaked their way back into the public square. You're not paranoid. https://t.co/oD5rOvKCOM— Mike Makowsky (@mikemakowsky) March 12, 2017

@SteveKingIA So refreshing to see that the American tradition of racism is still alive and well in Iowa. Civilization restored. 🖕🏽FU— Raxy Nickels ✌🏽 (@yaheresthething) March 12, 2017
GOP Congressman @SteveKingIA promotes the un-American ideas of white nationalism. Will any Republican congressmen condemn his bigotry? https://t.co/5etQ8fwZx2— Evan McMullin (@Evan_McMullin) March 12, 2017
We eagerly await that condemnation from his fellow
