Rep. Steve King Thinks Minorities Will Fight Each Other Before Surpassing Whites In Population

Republican Congressman Steve King has found himself in the middle of controversy due comments he made on Iowa radio station 1040 WHO earlier this week. Univision anchor Jorge Ramos said by 2044, whites in America will be a majority-minority demographic, to which King alleged minorities will take drastic measures before that happens.

“I will predict that Hispanics and the blacks will be fighting each other before that happens,” King, 67, said. King’s statements came shortly after he took to Twitter to say “we can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies.”

During an interview with CNN’s Chris Cuomo, King said his tweet, which was blasted by Civil Rights activist John Lewis but praised by former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, wasn’t about race, but instead about “our stock, our country, our culture, our civilization,” and that “we need to have enough babies to replace ourselves.”

The U.S. Representative then went onto say that it was Ramos who was “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 the whites becoming a minority, a majority-minority within the country according to what their plan is,” King said.
