On Sunday, U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) retweeted a link to a post by the far-right newspaper Voice of Europe featuring an image of Dutch white supremacist Geert Wilders, who is running for his country’s parliament. “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” wrote King. Wilders is known for his violent antipathy toward Muslims and for his People’s Party for Freedom (PVV) being a haven for white supremacists, neo-Nazis and other fringe elements of the Netherlands’ far right. After King posted the tweet – and former KKK leader David Duke retweeted it – Twitter moved in to mock, deride and chastise the congressman for spreading propaganda from one of Europe’s most virulently racist public figures.
However, as could be expected, the lawmaker stood up for his point of view, and said in an interview with Internet portal KnowMyRepublican.com that he would go so far as to “allow immigration from the Netherlands,” because there are, apparently, similar sentiments there to those that have been brewing for quite some time in America. “I understand this comes at a very sensitive time for our country, but it is precisely in such times that a country is either made stronger or shatters completely. I don’t know about you, but I’d personally like the former to take place rather than the latter,” King said. “This is not a time to be throwing personal liberties, political correctness and racial sensitivity in each other’s faces; this is a time to stop lying to ourselves and own up to what really needs to be done.”
“Now, personally, I’m not buying into the whole deportation thing that President Trump has been on about during his presidential campaign. As much as I’m aware that there are Americans out there who would support such a decision, I think it’s a logistical and financial nightmare, and if anything, Donald Trump has always been a prudent businessman,” the lawmaker added. “That being said, we’re still faced with the question of how we plan to protect the future generations and the culture and tradition of this country if we keep letting immigrants breed and suffocate white Americans with their imported way of life.”
He continued, “My suggestion is we let folks from the Netherlands immigrate to the United States, particularly people who are, as we’ve seen, similarly motivated to preserve everything the white race stands for. We can let it happen in stages, where we’d monitor how it all works, and if we like what we see and there’s a significant result to be had from bringing in white reinforcements, we’d develop the project to a much larger scale. Of course, those people would need jobs, homes, and everything else that makes for a good life in this country, which is to say, we’d have multiple benefits from getting them over here. The Dutch are known to be very hardworking and honest – after all, we’re talking here about a country that damn near ruled the world in colonial times.”
“As sad as it sounds, there’s just no way to preserve and restore our civilization and culture by allowing our women to keep giving birth to black babies. I know those children aren’t to blame, nor am I assigning any to them, but like I said – at the end of the day, we just have to keep it real and we have to be willing to make the tough decisions and the decisions that nobody else is willing to make. If one of those decisions includes letting white Dutch people immigrate to the states to help save the white population and culture, then so be it,” King concluded.
