Steve King is a conservative’s conservative, I reckon.
That’s how he might describe himself. The Iowa Republican congressman also tends to say things that flutter dangerously close to idiocy.
Does this clown not understand the very nature of the nation he purports to govern as a member of Congress?
“We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” King said. Do you know what he means? I believe he means that immigrants — particularly those from, say, Africa, Asia and Latin America — aren’t welcome in the United States of America.
I believe this country is supposed to stand as a beacon for the rest of the world. It is supposed to be where others come to improve their lives, to seek opportunity, to embrace freedom and liberty. I do not believe the United States restricts entry to those of certain skin tone, or religion, or ethnic background.
King has fired off yet another outrageous remark that belies the very foundation of this great country.
Here is what Politico reports: “King told CNN that ‘there’s been far too much focus on race, especially in the last eight years.’ He accused liberals of ‘looking for hatred’ and being uninterested in unifying the nation’s racial divides.
“’Actually, if you go down the road a few generations or maybe centuries with the intermarriage, I’d like to see an America that’s just so homogenous that we look a lot the same, from that perspective,’ King said.”
We look a lot the same? Utterly breathtaking.
