Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King Retweets Neo-Nazi

HeadlineJun 15, 2018

Iowa Republican Congressmember Steve King sparked outrage this week after retweeting a racist tweet by British neo-Nazi Mark Collett reading, “65% of Italians under the age of 35 now oppose mass immigration. Europe is waking up…” The tweet featured an article by Breitbart News. Mark Collett is a known white supremacist who has claimed the porn industry is a secret Jewish plot to destroy Christian families. Despite outcry, King has not deleted his retweet and, in fact, yesterday shared the same Breitbart article again on his Twitter page. This is not Congressmember King’s first white supremacist comment. Last year, he published a racist tweet in support of far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders. In 2016, he told MSNBC that white Christians have contributed more to Western civilization than any other “subgroup.”
