Rep. Steve King (R-IA), of newfound “somebody else’s babies” infamy, is back in the news saying that black and Hispanic populations “will be fighting each other” before outnumbering the population of white people in the United States.
“They’re dividing people, they’re pitting people against each other,” King said on WHO radio’s “The Jan Mickelson Show” in Des Moines.
King was on the radio responding to a question about Univision anchor Jorge Ramos’ comment to Tucker Carlson on Fox News that whites would become a majority-minority demographic in America by 2044, a point Ramos used to make the argument that it is a multiracial country.
“Jorge Ramos’ stock in trade is identifying and trying to drive wedges between race,” King told Mickelson on air. “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.”
King’s comments comes on the heels of a controversy the Iowa congressman spurred when he tweeted Sunday, “We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.” Those comments were praised by white nationalist and former KKK grand wizard David Duke.
