After Rep. Steve King (R-IA) wrote that “we can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies," white nationalist and neo-Nazi media rallied around the Republican congressman, calling him a “hero” for “openly endorsing White nationalism,” and saying they hoped the comment “is a signal that conservatives are moving in the right direction under [President Donald] Trump.”
Iowa Congressman Steve King Promotes White Nationalism In Tweet
King: “We Can't Restore Our Civilization With Somebody Else's Babies.” ABC News reported that “Rep. Steve King -- an Iowa Republican known for his sometimes provocative rhetoric -- drew fire on social media Sunday after tweeting, ‘we can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies.’ In the post, King appeared to promote Geert Wilders, a right-wing Dutch politician who has vowed to 'de-Islamize' the Netherlands if elected prime minister.”
Following Criticism, King Stated, “I Meant Exactly What I Said.” [The Hill, 3/13/17]
White Nationalist Outlets Praise “Hero” King For Speaking The “Truth”
Daily Stormer: “Hero” King “Is Basically An Open White Nationalist At This Point,” So He “Should Be Speaker Of The House.” Andrew Anglin, the operator of neo-Nazi website The Daily Stormer, praised King in a March 12 article with the headline “Hero Steve King Calls for White Racial Supremacy in America.” Anglin wrote that King “is saying the country is white, it is our country and we shouldn’t be raising other people’s kids”:
Steve King is basically an open white nationalist at this point.
Today, with a Geert Wilders meme, he tweeted: “Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”
OUR civilization and SOMEBODY ELSE’S babies.
Not really any nuance there.
He is saying the country is white, it is our country and we shouldn’t be raising other people’s kids.
King famously declared the supremacy of the white race at the RNC in an MSNBC interview. It was awesome.
When asked to apologize, he doubled down.
Steve King should be Speaker of the House. Period. There (sic) is as plain as the nose on your face*.
He is /ourguy/. [The Daily Stormer, 3/12/17]
Daily Stormer Defends King From Criticism By “Cucks, Kikes And Cubans.” After King’s comment spurred outrage, The Daily Stormer published a racist diatribe against King’s critics, claiming that “our enemies gather against him,” telling an American congressman with Cuban parents to “get the hell out of my country,” and calling for conservative pundit Bill Kristol to “go to Israel.” The article called on white supremacists to build momentum around King, claiming, “We already memed a man President, we can meme a man Speaker”:
It’s time for KING STEVE to take his place below the throne of the GOD EMPEROR [President Donald Trump].
By the way, we need Steve King memes ASAP.
Make them, spread them.
We already memed a man President, we can meme a man Speaker.
DO IT. [The Daily Stormer, 3/13/17]

Infostormer: King “Is Openly Endorsing White Nationalism For America,” And He Is “100 percent Right.” Infostormer, a neo-Nazi website devoted to “destroying Jewish tyranny,” praised King in a March 12 article, writing, “Whites built America … so there is nothing un-American about what King said. What’s un-American is unlimited immigration, multiculturalism and this Jewish agenda that has destroyed the original intent of what America was supposed to be”:
Congressman Steve King is openly endorsing White nationalism for America. In a tweet referencing Geert Wilders, King states the obvious fact that we can’t restore our civilization with babies from foreign countries.
He’s 100 percent right. Race, demographics and culture are all linked. Western civilization will be destroyed if these third world populations are allowed to continue migrating into our lands.
People are already crying about his tweet.
The closet faggot Evan McMullin called King’s statement un-American.
Whites built America Evan so there is nothing un-American about what King said. What’s un-American is unlimited immigration, multiculturalism and this Jewish agenda that has destroyed the original intent of what America was supposed to be. [Infostormer, 3/12/17]

Keep attacking #steveking! Swing state of Iowa only voted 9 points for Trump!”:
RICHARD SPENCER: Very true words, words that were spoken from the heart, and words that are going to be controversial precisely because they are true and because they are powerful.
SPENCER: Steve King is getting at a root nationalism, a nationalism in the real sense of the word, and I’m very proud of him for doing that. One thing I would tell Steve King, just don’t cuck. What you said is true. You spoke, or tweeted, from the heart. Don’t apologize.
