GOP Rep. Steve King Doubles Down on White Supremacy Comments

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) doubled down Wednesday on controversial remarks he made earlier this week that white people have made more “contributions” to western civilization than other “sub-groups.” King defended his comments to the Washington Post by saying he was responding to a panelist who claimed “old white people” are a dying brand.

“The idea of multi-culturalism and that every culture is equal—that’s not objectively true,” King told The Washington Post on Facebook Live. “And we’ve been fed that information for the last 25 years in this country. And we’re not going to continue to become a greater nation if we don’t look at this objectively.”
