It doesn't take serious Google-fu skills to find quotes by Iowa Congressman Steve King (R-Nazi) being racist.
I mean, how can you forget these classics?
Rep. Steve King Compares Immigrants To Dogs
But today, he tweeted something that really has taken the Twitterverse aback:
Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies. https://t.co/4nxLipafWO

Geert Wilders, for those unfamiliar with Dutch politics, is the right wing Islamophobic Dutch politician who may actually get a surprise victory in the upcoming elections, becoming the Prime Minister, despite being a divisive provocateur peddling in hate and bigotry and specifically appealing to neo-Nazis. (Sound familiar, Rust Belters?)
And Steve King thinks he's right to promote "our" civilization by encouraging "our babies", presumably saying that we don't need no more stinkin' brown babies destroying "our" civilization.
To which the only reply can be the poem on the base of the statue that so many members of my extended immigrant family saw as they came to this country to start new lives:
This country's "civilization" comes from celebrating that melting pot, not denying it. But Steve King's white supremacist idiocy would never let him see that.
But that didn't stop Twitter from telling him so:

@SteveKingIA You, Congressman, are simply a bigot. Good thing is, I know a lot of smart Dems eyeing your seat.
