“Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) appears to be going public as an outright white supremacist. On September 18, he released a tweet showing himself posing alongside European fascist leaders with the phrase, ‘Cultural suicide by demographic transformation must end.’ The text is a reference to a racist tenet—common among white nationalists and fascists — that people of color, immigrants and Muslims pose a threat to ‘white purity.’ In that same tweet, King addressed Frauke Petry, pictured to his right, stating: ‘Wishing you a successful vote.’ Petry heads the far-right Alternative for Germany Party as an anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim extremist. Sometimes referred to as “Adolfina,” Petry once called for German border police to shoot migrants and refugees seeking to enter the country. A prominent member of her party proclaimed that European states’ welcoming of refugees will only encourage Africans to reproduce. The other person shown in the tweet, pictured to the right of Petry, is Geert Wilders, leader of the Dutch fascist Party for Freedom. Wilders is an anti-Muslim extremist who has repeatedly claimed that the Koran is comparable to Hitler’s Mein Kampf. Speaking at the July Republican National Convention in support of Donald Trump, he said: ‘I don’t want more Muslims in the Netherlands and I am proud to say that.'”

Get this racist piece of shit out of there!
