Steven Arnold King (born May 28, 1949) is an American politician and former businessman serving as a U.S. Representative from Iowa since 2003. A member of the Republican Party, he represented Iowa's 5th congressional district until 2013, when redistricting renumbered it the 4th. This district is in northwestern Iowa and includes Sioux City.

Born in 1949 in Storm Lake, Iowa, King attended Northwest Missouri State University from 1967 to 1970 and majored in biology and mathematics, leaving the school without graduating. He founded a construction company in 1975 and worked in business and environmental study before seeking the Republican nomination for a seat in the Iowa Senate in 1996. He won the primary and the general election, and was reelected in 2000. In 2002 King was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Iowa's 5th congressional district after the incumbent, Tom Latham, was reassigned to the 4th district after redistricting. He was reelected four times before the 2010 United States Census removed the 5th district and placed King in the 4th, which he has represented since 2013.

King is an opponent of immigration and multiculturalism, and has a long history of white-nationalist affiliations.[1][2][3] The Washington Post described King as the "Congressman most openly affiliated with white nationalism."[1] King has spoken favorably of white supremacist ideas[4] and made controversial statements against Jews,[5] African Americans,[6] Latinos and immigrants,[7][8][9] and has supported European right-wing populist and far-right politicians accused of racism and Islamophobia.[10]

For much of King's congressional tenure, Republican Party politicians and officials were largely silent about his rhetoric, and frequently sought his endorsement and campaigned with him because of King's popularity with northwest Iowa's conservative voters.[3][11] Shortly before the 2018 election, the National Republican Congressional Committee withdrew funding for King's reelection campaign and its chairman, Steve Stivers, condemned King's conduct, although Iowa's Republican senators and governor continued to endorse him.[11][12] King was reelected, but after a January 2019 interview in which he questioned the negative connotations of the terms "white nationalist" and "white supremacy",[13] the Republican Steering Committee removed him from all House committee assignments.[14]

Just months later, King was back in the news with racist comments about Chinese detention of hundreds of thousands of Uygurs in the Xinjiang re-education camps.[15] Among other things, he told an audience at a townhall meeting that the Uygurs, who are Muslims, were being forced to eat pork, saying "That's actually the only part of that that I agree with, is everybody ought to eat pork."[16]

Personal life, education, and business career

King was born on May 28, 1949, in Storm Lake, Iowa,[13] the son of Mildred Lila (née Culler), a homemaker, and Emmett A. King, a state police dispatcher.[17] His father has Irish and German ancestry, and his mother has Welsh roots, as well as American ancestry going back to the colonial era.[17] His grandmother was a German immigrant.[18] King graduated in 1967 from Denison Community High School.[13][17][19] In 1972 he married Marilyn Kelly,[20] with whom he has three children. Though raised Methodist, King attends his wife's Catholic church, having converted 17 years after marrying her.[17] His son Jeff King, a consultant, has been active in his political campaigns.

King attended Northwest Missouri State University from 1967 to 1970, where he was a member of the Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity and majored in math and biology, but did not graduate.[17][21] In 1975, King founded King Construction, an earthmoving company.[13] In the 1980s he founded the Kiron Business Association. King's involvement with the Iowa Land Improvement Contractors' Association led to regional and national offices in that organization and a growing interest in public policy.[19][22]

Iowa State Senate (1997–2003)

In 1996, King was elected to Iowa's 6th Senate district, defeating incumbent senator Wayne Bennett in the primary 68%–31%[23] and Democrat Eileen Heiden in the general election 64%–35%.[24] In 2000, he won reelection to a second term, defeating Democratic nominee Dennis Ryan 70%–30%.[25] During his tenure in the Iowa State Senate, King filed a bill requiring public schools to teach children that the U.S. "is the unchallenged greatest nation in the world and that it has derived its strength from... Christianity, free enterprise capitalism and Western civilization", and served as chief sponsor of a law making English the official language of Iowa.[2]

In 2002, after redistricting, King ran for the open seat in Iowa's 5th congressional district. The incumbent, fellow Republican Tom Latham, had his home drawn into the reconfigured 4th district. King finished first in the four-way Republican primary with 31% of the vote,[26] less than the 35% voting threshold needed to win; subsequently, a nominating convention was held, at which he was nominated, defeating state house speaker Brent Siegrist 51%–47%.[27][28] King won the general election, defeating Council Bluffs city councilman Paul Shomshor 62%–38%. He won all the counties in the predominantly Republican district except Pottawattamie.[29]

2004

King won reelection to a second term, defeating Democratic candidate Joyce Schulte, 63%–37%. He won all the counties in the district except Clarke.[30]

2006

In 2006, King won reelection to a third term, defeating Schulte again, 59%–36%. He won all the counties in the district except Clarke and Union.[31][32]

2008

King won reelection to a fourth term, defeating Democratic candidate Rob Hubler, 60%–37%. For the first time in his career he won all 32 counties in his district.[33][34]

2010

King won reelection to a fifth term, defeating Matt Campbell, 66%–32%. That was his highest percentage yet. King also won all 32 counties again.[35][36]

2012

Iowa lost a district as a result of the 2010 census. King's district was renumbered the 4th, and pushed well to the east, absorbing Mason City and Ames. This placed King and his predecessor, Latham, in the same district. Latham opted to move to the reconfigured 3rd District to challenge Democratic incumbent Leonard Boswell. The reconfigured district was, at least on paper, much more competitive than King's old district. The old 5th had a Cook Partisan Voting Index of R+9, while the new 4th has a PVI of R+4. The new 4th was also mostly new to him; he retained only 45% of his former territory. Geographically it was more Latham's district than King's; it closely resembled the territory that Latham had represented from 1995 to 2003.

Soon afterward, former Iowa first lady Christie Vilsack, the wife of former governor and then current U.S. agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack, announced she was moving to the new 4th to challenge King. King received the endorsement of Mitt Romney, who said, "I'm looking here at Steve King because this man needs to be your congressman again. I want him as my partner in Washington, D.C."[37] King won reelection to a sixth term, defeating Vilsack, 53%–45%. King won all but seven counties, none of which he had previously represented: Webster, Boone, Story, Chickasaw, Floyd, Cerro Gordo, and Winnebago.[38][39] King later said of his 2012 victory, "I faced $7 million, the best of everything Democrats can throw at me, their dream candidate and everything that can come from the Obama machine, and prevailed through all of that with 55 percent of my district that was new."[40]

2014

On May 3, 2013, King announced that he would not run for the U.S. Senate in 2014.[41]

King won reelection with 61.6% of the vote, defeating Democratic candidate Jim Mowrer.[42]

2016

King won reelection, receiving 61.2% of the vote to Democratic nominee Kim Weaver's 38.6%.[43]

2018

King faced his closest race to date in 2018, receiving 50.4% of the vote to 47% for Democratic nominee J.D. Scholten; Libertarian candidate Charles Aldrich received 2%.[44] Turnout was down from the 2016 election; 370,259 voted in 2016, compared to 313,251 in 2018.

It was the closest a Democrat has come to winning what is now the 4th since Berkley Bedell left office in what was then the 6th District in 1986. That year, Republican Fred Grandy won with only 50.1 percent of the vote.[45] Since then, the only other time a Republican hasn't won election by double digits in this district (which became the 5th in 1993 and the 4th in 2013) was King's 2012 race against Vilsack.

Tenure

King is considered an outspoken fiscal and social conservative. After winning the 2002 Republican nomination, he said that he intended to use his seat in Congress to "move the political center of gravity in Congress to the right."[46]

During the 110th Congress, King voted with the majority of the Republican Party 90.9% of the time.[47] He has continuously voted for Iraq War legislation, supported surge[clarification needed] efforts and opposed a time table for troop withdrawals. During the 112th United States Congress King was one of 40 "staunch" members of the Republican Study Committee who frequently voted against Republican party leadership and vocally expressed displeasure with House bills.[48]

In August 2015, King was named the least effective member of Congress by InsideGov due to his persistent failures to get legislation out of committee.[49]

Committee assignments

King served on the Judiciary, Agriculture, and Small Business Committees until January 14, 2019, when he was removed from all committee assignments after bipartisan condemnation of his remarks on white supremacy.[50]

Caucus memberships

Political positions

Abortion

King opposes abortion.[54] He has a 100% rating from the National Right to Life Committee, indicating an anti-abortion voting record. King has also voted against allowing human embryonic stem cell research.[55] He supports the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act, which would ban federal funding of abortions except in cases of what the bill calls "forcible rape". This would remove the coverage from Medicaid that covers abortions for victims of statutory rape or incest.[56]

After Todd Akin made a controversial statement about "legitimate rape" on August 19, 2012, King came to his defense, characterizing the critical response as "petty personal attacks" and calling Akin a "strong Christian man".[57][58] King said that Akin's voting record should be more important than his words.[59][60][61] Six months later, King's defense of Akin (who lost his race) was seen as politically damaging by Steven J. Law of the Conservative Victory Project, a group including Karl Rove that was working to discourage conservative candidates they deemed unelectable, to enable more viable conservative candidates to gain office. Law said, "We're concerned about Steve King's Todd Akin problem."[62][63]

King sponsored legislation to ban abortion of a fetus that has a detectable heartbeat, which can in some cases occur as early as 6 weeks (before many women know they are pregnant). A physician who performs a prohibited abortion would be subject to a fine, up to five years in prison, or both. A woman who undergoes a prohibited abortion could not be prosecuted for violating the provisions of this bill.[64]

In August 2019, while defending his opposition to abortion in cases of rape or incest, King asked, "What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?"[65][66] Iowa State Senator Randy Feenstra, who is challenging King in the 2020 Republican primary, tweeted: "I am 100% pro-life but Steve King’s bizarre comments and behavior diminish our message & damage our cause".[67] Wyoming representative Liz Cheney called King's comments "appalling and bizarre” and called for his resignation.[68] King's comments were also criticized by Steve Scalise, Kevin McCarthy, Donald Trump, and Elise Jordan.[69][70]

Gun rights

King opposes stricter regulations on gun ownership.[54][71] In 2017, King said that a bill to close the so-called "gun show loophole" and add background checks for individuals who bought guns at gun shows would ruin "Christmas at the Kings'" if it passed.[72] In 2018, King criticized 18-year old Parkland shooting survivor Emma Gonzalez, attempting to tie her to Communist Cuba.[73][74] In 2018, he said that easy access to guns should not be blamed for gun violence, but rather video games, cultural changes, lack of prayer in schools, gun-free zones, family break-ups, and the stimulant medication Ritalin.[75]

Animal rights

In February 2010, King tweeted about chasing and shooting a raccoon that had tried to enter his house during a blizzard, prompting criticism from animal rights groups. He defended his actions, saying the animal might have been rabid.[76]

In July 2012, King opposed the McGovern Amendment (to the 2012 Farm Bill) to establish misdemeanor penalties for knowingly attending an organized animal fight and felony penalties for bringing a minor to such a fight. He was also one of 39 members of the House to vote against an upgrade of penalties for transporting fighting animals across state lines in 2007.[77] King received a score of zero on the 2012 Humane Society Legislative Fund's Humane Scorecard.[78][79][80] Afterward, he put out a video clarifying his position, stating that it would be putting animals above humans if it were legal to watch humans fight but not animals.[81] The issue prompted a feature segment on The Colbert Report criticizing King's reasoning. The main differences cited between human combat sports and dogfights were the ability to choose to participate and the consequences of losing a match. [82][83]

On September 24, 2010, comedian Stephen Colbert testified to the House Agriculture Committee about the working conditions of migrant farmworkers. King said he wanted to eliminate them, replacing them with "everyday American workers." "Maybe we should be spending less time watching Comedy Central and more time considering all the real jobs that are out there, ones that require real hard labor", King complained. He praised the "Joe the Plumbers of the world who many days would prefer the aroma of fresh dirt to that of the sewage from American elitists who disparage them even as they flush." Colbert in his faux-conservative character lampooned King. "This is America! I don't want a tomato picked by a Mexican! I want it picked by an American, then sliced by Guatemalan, and served by a Venezuelan in a spa where a Chilean gives me a Brazilian."[84]

In July 2012, King introduced an amendment to the House Farm Bill that would legalize previously banned animal agriculture practices such as tail-docking, using banned arsenic-based drugs in chicken feed, and keeping impregnated pigs in small crates. "My language wipes out everything they've done with pork and veal," King said of his amendment.[85] The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) President Wayne Pacelle said the measure could nullify "any laws to protect animals, and perhaps ... laws to protect the environment, workers, or public safety."[86]

In May 2013, King introduced another amendment to the House Farm Bill, the Protect Interstate Commerce Act (PICA), saying, "PICA blocks states from requiring 'free range' eggs or 'free range' pork."[87] In 2014, the controversial provision was dropped.[88]

LGBT rights

On April 3, 2009, the Iowa Supreme Court ruled unanimously that a state ban on same-sex marriage violated Iowa's constitution.[89] King soon commented that the justices "should resign from their position" and the state legislature "must also enact marriage license residency requirements so that Iowa does not become the gay marriage Mecca."[90] King, along with others, mounted a campaign against the three Iowa Supreme Court justices who were up for retention and had ruled on the gay marriage case. King bought $80,000 of radio advertising across the state calling for Iowans to vote against their retention. None of the three was retained.[91]

On October 7, 2014, King was one of 19 members of Congress inducted into the LGBT civil rights advocacy group Human Rights Campaign's "Hall of Shame" for his opposition to LGBT equality.[92][93]

In response to the Supreme Court's 2015 decision Obergefell v. Hodges, in which the court ruled that same-sex marriage is a constitutionally protected right, King has called for a non-binding resolution saying that states may refuse to recognize the decision.[94][95] King has also called for the abolition of civil marriage.[96][97] On May 17, 2019, King was one of 173 representatives to vote against the Equality Act.[98]

Health care

King is a staunch opponent of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and has led attempts to repeal it.[99][100][101][102] He fought against Medicare and Medicaid covering a number of medications such as Viagra, which he called "recreational drugs".[103]

In January 2017, King said that in the wake of the 2016 presidential election "it has become abundantly clear that the American people have overwhelmingly rejected Obamacare time and time again" and called for congressional Republicans to "take swift action to fulfill our promise to We the People and repeal this unconstitutional and egregious law passed by hook, crook and legislative shenanigan."[104] In May 2017, King said he had moved from supporting the American Health Care Act, the Republican replacement to the Affordable Care Act, to being unsure as a result of benefits such as emergency services, hospitalization and prescription drugs that were added following his backing of the measure: "Once they negotiated [essential health benefits] with the Freedom Caucus and Tuesday Group, it is hard for me to imagine they will bring that language in the Senate, or that it will be effective because they diluted this thing substantially." King added that he and Trump agreed on the need for the federal government to not have a role in health insurance and that Republicans would not have had difficulty repealing the Affordable Care Act had the party prioritized its replacement within the first week of the 115th Congress, in January 2015.[105]

Fiscal policy

Objecting to "taxpayer-funded subsidies, pet projects and added bureaucracy", King voted against the Obama-era $789 billion stimulus bill in the U.S. House of Representatives, saying, "Our economy will not recover because government spends more. It will recover because people produce more."[106] King also stood out as one of only 11 members of Congress to vote against the $51.8 billion Hurricane Katrina relief package in 2005, claiming there was no comprehensive plan for spending the aid money.[107]

Political lobbying

On February 26, 2010, King went to the House floor to protest Democrats' handling of health care reform and said, "Lobbyists do a very effective and useful job on this Hill ... There's a credibility there in that arena that I think somebody needs to stand up for the lobby, and it is a matter of providing a lot of valuable information."[108]

Climate change

King has dismissed concern over global warming, calling it a "religion" and claiming efforts to address climate change are useless.[109][110] A day after claiming that climate change was more "a religion than a science," he reasserted that many scientists overreact when discussing the consequences of global warming,[111] saying, "Everything that might result from a warmer planet is always bad in [environmentalists'] analysis. There will be more photosynthesis going on if the Earth gets warmer ... And if sea levels go up 4 or 6 inches, I don't know if we'd know that. We don't know where sea level is even, let alone be able to say that it's going to come up an inch globally because some polar ice caps might melt because there's CO
2
suspended in the atmosphere."[112]

2016 presidential election support

King endorsed Ted Cruz in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries, saying Cruz was the "answer to my prayers".[113] He endorsed and strongly supported Donald Trump after Trump won the nomination.[114][115]

Racist comments, controversies and far-right politics

The Washington Post has described King as "the U.S. congressman most openly affiliated with white nationalism", while Vanity Fair has said his opinions in this direction are "barely veiled".[1][116] David Leonhardt in an opinion piece for The New York Times has explicitly identified King as being a "white nationalist".[117] King has stirred controversy and come to prominence by making statements that have been described as racist[118][13][7][119][120][121][122] or racially charged.[8][123][124][9][125] He is a staunch opponent of immigration and multiculturalism and has supported various far-right European politicians. According to The Guardian, King "has long been one of the most vociferously anti-immigration members of the House Republican caucus."[126] King has said that he is not a racist.[13]

In October 2018, the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, Steve Stivers, condemned King as a racist, saying that King's actions and comments were "completely inappropriate" and constituted "white supremacy and hate."[127] The NRCC said it would not help King in his 2018 re-election efforts.[12] Representative Carlos Curbelo described King's comments and actions as "disgusting" and said that he would never vote for someone like King.[128] Senator Ted Cruz called King's rhetoric "divisive" but stopped short of condemning him.[127] Other Republicans, such as House Agriculture Committee Chairman Mike Conaway, dismissed the idea that King is racist.[127]

In a January 2019 New York Times interview, King asked, "White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?" He also said of the large increase in representation of minorities and women in the new Democrat-controlled House: "You could look over there and think the Democratic Party is no country for white men."[13][129] He was subsequently condemned by numerous Republican members of Congress, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other members of the House Republican leadership.[130][131][132] U.S. Senator Tim Scott criticized King harshly in a Washington Post op-ed and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called King's remark's "unwelcome and unworth of his elected position".[133][134] Conservative commentator Ben Shapiro called for King to be censured and for a primary challenge against King.[135] After the interview was published, and following backlash from across the political spectrum, King issued a statement via Twitter stating that he was "simply a Nationalist," that he did not advocate for "white nationalism and white supremacy", and that "I want to make one thing abundantly clear: I reject those labels and the evil ideology they define."[13][132][136] King said that the New York Times misunderstood his comments, and that he did not question why "white nationalist" and "white supremacist" were offensive terms.[137] On Twitter he later stated: "As I told the New York Times, 'it's not about race; It's never been about race'."[138] The House voted 416-1 to rebuke King's comments, with Illinois Representative Bobby Rush the lone "nay" vote.[139]

Immigration and multiculturalism

King is a staunch opponent of immigration and multiculturalism.[140][141][13]

In April 2006, when asked if "the US economy simply couldn't function without" the presence of illegal immigrants, King said that he rejected that position "categorically". He said the 77.5 million people between the ages of 16 and 65 in the United States who are not part of the workforce "could be put to work and we could invent machines to replace the rest."[142] In 2006, King called for an electrified fence on the US border, commenting that such fences were successful in containing livestock.[100]

In July 2013, speaking about proposed immigration legislation, King said of undocumented immigrants: "For every one who's a valedictorian, there's another 100 out there who weigh 130 pounds—and they've got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert."[143] Despite strong rebukes from both Democrats and other Republicans, including House speaker John Boehner, who called his statements "ignorant" and "hateful", and House majority leader Eric Cantor, who called the comments "inexcusable", King defended his comments, saying he got the description from the border patrol.[144][145][146]

In July 2015, referencing HUD secretary Julian Castro's remarks on how poorly the Republican Party was doing with Hispanic voters, King responded, "What does Julian Castro know? Does he know that I'm as Hispanic and Latino as he?"[146][147] King is neither Hispanic nor Latino by either family history or ethnic definition.[148]

King displayed the Confederate flag on his office desk in 2016, although Iowa was part of the Union during the American Civil War. He removed it after a Confederate flag-waver shot two Iowa police officers.[149] King also attempted to block a bill that would place Harriet Tubman on the twenty-dollar bill.[150]

In March 2017, King wrote "culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies." When asked about his comments, King stood by them, saying: "you need to teach your children your values" and "with the inter-marriage, I'd like to see an America that is just so homogenous that we look a lot the same".[100][151] King was rebuked by members of his own party, including Speaker Paul D. Ryan, but praised by white supremacist David Duke and The Daily Stormer, a neo-Nazi website.[100]

In July 2017, the House Appropriations Committee voted to fund the US-Mexico border wall, allocating $1.6 billion for it. King called for an additional $5 billion for the wall, to be paid for with federal dollars coming from Planned Parenthood, food stamps, and other federal welfare programs,[152] saying, "I would find half of a billion of dollars of that right out of Planned Parenthood's budget, and the rest of it could come out of food stamps and the entitlements that are being spread out for people who have not worked in three generations."[153] In June 2018, he retweeted a comment by Mark Collett, a British neo-Nazi and self-described admirer of Hitler, about Europe "waking up" to mass immigration.[154]

On November 5, 2018, King referred to Mexican immigrants as "dirt" while at a campaign stop. The Weekly Standard reported the comment;[155] King denied saying it and called on The Weekly Standard to release audio of the remarks.[156] The Weekly Standard then released a recording of the exchange, confirming that King had made the remarks.[155] In May 2019, King warned against "presuming that every culture is equal".[157] On September 4, 2019, King posted a video of himself drinking water from toilets at migrant facilities.[158] Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez criticized the GOP as "anti-immigrant" following the video.[159]

President Barack Obama

On March 7, 2008, during his press engagements to announce his reelection campaign, King made remarks about then U.S. senator and Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama and his middle name "Hussein", saying:

I don't want to disparage anyone because of their race, their ethnicity, their name—whatever their religion their father might have been, I'll just say this: When you think about the optics of a Barack Obama potentially getting elected President of the United States – I mean, what does this look like to the rest of the world? What does it look like to the world of Islam? I will tell you that, if he is elected president, then the radical Islamists, the al-Qaida, the radical Islamists and their supporters, will be dancing in the streets in greater numbers than they did on September 11.[160]

On March 10, King defended his comments to the Associated Press, saying "[Obama will] certainly be viewed as a savior for them... That's why you will see them supporting him, encouraging him."[161]

Obama said he did not take the comments too seriously, describing King as a person who thrives on making controversial statements to get media coverage. He said, "I would hope Senator McCain would want to distance himself from that kind of inflammatory and offensive remarks." The McCain campaign disavowed King's comments, saying "John McCain rejects the type of politics that degrades our civics… and obviously that extends to Congressman King's statement."[161]

In mid-January 2009, King acknowledged that terrorists were not dancing in the streets, and had made statements opposing Obama. He said he found Obama's decision to use his middle name "Hussein" when sworn in as the 44th President of the United States to be "bizarre" and "a double standard".[162]

In 2010, King speculated that Obama's immigration policies were influenced by racial favoritism toward blacks.[100]

Racial profiling

On June 14, 2010, King said on the House floor that racial profiling is an important component of law enforcement: "Some claim that the Arizona law will bring about racial discrimination profiling. First let me say, Mr. Speaker, that profiling has always been an important component of legitimate law enforcement. If you can't profile someone, you can't use those common sense indicators that are before your very eyes. Now, I think it's wrong to use racial profiling for the reasons of discriminating against people, but it's not wrong to use race or other indicators for the sake of identifying people that are violating the law."[163] As an example of profiling, King described an instance when a taxi driver would stop for him before he had to hail a cab, just because he was in a business suit.[164]

The same day, on G. Gordon Liddy's radio program, King said that Obama's policies favored black people: "The president has demonstrated that he has a default mechanism in him that breaks down the side of race—on the side that favors the black person in the case of Professor Gates and Officer Crowley."[6] On January 13, 2018, King tweeted that racial oppression was a "thing of the past".[165]

Comments on Western civilization

On July 18, 2016, King participated in a panel discussion on MSNBC,[166] during which a panelist from Esquire magazine suggested that the 2016 convention could be the last in which "old white people would command the Republican Party's attention". King responded, "This whole 'old white people' business does get a little tired, Charlie. I'd ask you to go back through history and figure out where are these contributions that have been made by these other categories of people that you are talking about? Where did any other subgroup of people contribute more to civilization?"[167] Panel moderator Chris Hayes later described King's comments as odious and preposterous.[167] Panel member April Ryan described them as "in-my-face racism".[168] That evening, King was asked about his comments during an interview with ABC News. King said he had meant to say that "Western civilization," rather than "white people," is the "superior culture": "when you describe Western civilization, that can mean much of Western civilization happens to be Caucasians. But we should not apologize for our culture or our civilization. The contributions that were made by Western civilization itself, and by Americans, by Americans of all races, stand far above the rest of the world. The Western civilization and the American civilization are a superior culture."[169][170][171]

Anti-Muslim beliefs

On December 9, 2015, King told MSNBC that he agrees with his party that Islam is "incompatible" with American life.[172] In an interview with Breitbart News, King said he did not want Muslims working in meat-packing plants, because "I don't want people doing my pork that won't eat it, let alone hope I go to hell for eating pork chops."[173][174] On March 7, 2019, King voted "present" on a resolution passed by the US House that condemns anti-Semitism and anti-Muslim discrimination.[175] On August 27, 2019, King joked about Uyghur muslims detained in China being forced to eat pork.[176]

Abuse at Abu Ghraib prison

In May 2004, King compared the torture and prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib prison to "hazing".[177][178] He said the abuse was similar to the crimes "committed by Jeffrey Dahmer compared to those of Heidi Fleiss",[179] and that "if Tom Harkin and his Democrat allies want to continue to act like political cannibals and pitch partisan hooey to anyone who’ll listen, then they’re eating their own."[180]

Affirmative action

King opposes affirmative action. He has said: "There's been legislation that's been brought through this House that sets aside benefits for women and minorities. The only people that it excludes are white men... Pretty soon, white men are going to notice they are the ones being excluded."[181] In 2015, King introduced a bill that would require colleges to report affirmative action.[182]

Support for far-right politics

On March 12, 2017, King expressed his support for Geert Wilders, a far-right Dutch politician known for his anti-Islam views, leading up to the election in the Netherlands, stating, "Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny"[10][183] and "We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies," referring to his views on ending birthright citizenship and promoting "an America that's just so homogenous that we look a lot [sic] the same."[10] His statements received criticism from other politicians, including several Republicans, with Jeb Bush responding that "America is a nation of immigrants"; despite the backlash, King firmly defended his statements.[183][10] Others noted that King's statements were well received among white nationalists, garnering support from prominent members of that community.[10][183] The next day on CNN, King said he was referring to culture, not ethnicity, saying "It's the culture, not the blood. If you can go anywhere in the world and adopt these babies and put them into households that were already assimilated in America, those babies will grow up as American as any other baby with as much patriotism and love of country as any other baby."[184] Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke praised King's statement.[185]

King supported French right-wing populist politician, leader of the Front National Marine Le Pen in the French 2017 presidential election.[186] He sent her a message stating: "Our shared civilization must be saved".[186]

King supported Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, a right-wing populist and strong opponent of admitting migrants during the European migrant crisis. On December 8, 2017, King tweeted Orbán's quote that "Diversity is not our strength. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, 'Mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but a lower one'."[187] "Assimilation has become a dirty word to the multiculturalist Left. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength," he tweeted.[188]

On August 24, 2018, King was interviewed by the Austrian website Unzensuriert (Uncensored), which is connected to the country's Freedom Party, part of the Kurz government. He agreed with the interviewer that American financier George Soros is involved with the "Great Replacement", a far-right conspiracy theory that claims to have identified a plot to replace white Europeans with minorities and immigrants.[189]

King also endorsed controversial right-wing Canadian political commentator Faith Goldy in the 2018 Toronto mayoral election. Goldy has participated in a Neo-Nazi podcast and has been described as far-right or alt-right.[12][190][191] In response to the Goldy endorsement and King's other racially contentious remarks, Minnesota-based agricultural cooperative Land O'Lakes ended its support for his reelection.[192]

White genocide

King subscribes to the white genocide conspiracy theory, and has stated this view while in Congress.[193][194][195] Mother Jones and other media have reported more generally on his belief in and promotion of the conspiracy theory.[196][197][198] In 2018, King spoke to an Austrian far-right publication about "the great replacement", which the New York Times described as "a conspiracy theory on the far right that claims shadowy elites are working behind the scenes to reduce white populations to minorities in their own countries."[13] The theory gained notoriety after the alleged perpetrator of the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings titled his manifesto after it;[199] King strongly condemned the shootings on Twitter.[200]

Antisemitism controversy in 2018

In late October 2018, after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) sent the House speaker, Paul Ryan, an open letter calling on him to censure King,[201] citing King's relationship with far-right Freedom Party of Austria and other far-right groups in Europe. The letter accused King of engaging in antisemitic smearing of the Jewish investor and philanthropist George Soros. It concluded, "Rep. King has brought dishonor onto the House of Representatives. We strongly urge you and the congressional leadership to demonstrate your revulsion with Rep. King's actions by stripping him of his subcommittee chairmanship and initiating proceedings to formally censure or otherwise discipline him."[5] Two leaders within the Iowa Jewish community also criticized King for being "an enthusiastic crusader for the same types of abhorrent beliefs held by the Pittsburgh shooter".[202][203]
