Iowa Rep. Steve King is in hot water today for a disgusting tweet about far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders.
King retweeted a message from an account labeled Voice of Europe, which labels itself as a “news/media” organization on Facebook but does not appear to be affiliated with the government-funded Voice of America broadcasting service.
The post King shared Sunday shows an image of Wilders plugging a hole in a wall labeled “Western Civilization” as bearded protesters behind him hold signs that say, “Infidels, Know Your Limits” and “Freedom of Speech Go To Hell.”
“Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” King tweeted alongside the original Voice of Europe message.
Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies. https://t.co/4nxLipafWO

@SteveKingIA You know that you were "somebody else's baby" too, right? Or do you not understand how this works?
