Steve King Can’t Stop Himself, Immediately Makes Another Inflammatory Comment

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I tried.

I really tried to give Iowa Rep. Steve King the benefit of the doubt.

After a weekend tweet, where he invoked “somebody else’s babies,” in regards to unchecked immigration, I posted that he could have made statements about immigration without sounding like a complete tool.

And you definitely do NOT bring babies into your politics.

On Monday, he clarified his statements and I extended a bit of grace, posting that his clarification was much more diplomatic and made sense, when things were put in full context.

For everybody’s sake, you’d like to think that would be enough and we could have a few days without one of our lawmakers saying something inflammatory and stupid.


During a radio interview on Monday, Rep. King responded to comments made earlier by Univision host, Jorge Ramos, that whites would be a majority-minority demographic in America by 2044.

Said King:

“Jorge Ramos’ stock in trade is identifying and trying to drive wedges between race,” King told Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson on 1040 WHO. “Race and ethnicity, I should say to be more correct. When you start accentuating the differences, then you start ending up with people that are at each other’s throats. And he’s adding up Hispanics and blacks into what he predicts will be in greater number than whites in America. I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens.”

I don’t even know where to go with this.

Are those comments racist?

Yeah. Those might be a little racist.

You just can’t conjure this image of warring racial and ethnic groups, as if they’re all gang members out to defend their “colors.”

King wasn’t done.

In the interview on Iowa radio, King reiterated comments he made Monday to Chris Cuomo on CNN’s “New Day,” saying, “This isn’t about race.”

He said his comments were instead about “our stock, our country, our culture, our civilization,” and that “we need to have enough babies to replace ourselves.”

But King argued that others, such as Ramos, were “celebrating” the success of a plan to make whites a majority-minority.

“Their effort here is to be celebrating because the United States is moving towards becoming, the whites becoming a minority, a majority-minority within the country according to what their plan is,” he said.

Ok. I’m done here. It’s like he hasn’t learned any lesson.

People of Iowa, this is your mess. You handle him.

    Actually, I agree with Rep. King. He is talking about the culture, the language & the fabric of a country – our country. It cannot be maintained if it is not being repopulated with like-minded people. I heard him further commenting that he should have explicitly added to the phrase “other people’s babies” the qualifier “who are not adopted and raised by” Americans. Personally, I thought it was evidencet in what he said and believe the original comment needed to be said! Does it not make total sense? We need to stop this P.C. nonsense, require complete assimilation and, among many other things, make English the national language.
