GOP Rep. Steve King Retweets Prominent British Nazi

GOP lawmaker retweets prominent British neo-Nazi | TheHill

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) questions witnesses during a House Judiciary Committee hearing concerning the oversight of the USA refugee admissions program.

Republican Rep. Steve King is under fire after quoting a tweet from a British neo-Nazi, marking yet another instance in which the Iowa congressman has sparked outrage over his social media habits.

'Europe is waking up. Will America.in time?' King tweeted, linking to an anti-immigrant tweet from political activist Mark Collett.

The Huffington Post reports that Collett, a well-known far-right activist, has said in the past that he admires Adolf Hitler, and was the subject of a documentary called "Young, Nazi and Proud".

Mark Collett, a self-described "Nazi sympathizer", originally tweeted out a Breitbart article about opposition to immigration in Italy.

"Let's face it, when it happens that many times it's not just persecution: there's no smoke without fire", Collett said.

Italian media say aid ship denied right to dock
But the decision to close ports was significant because it showed Italy's willingness to put up a stop sign closer to its border. Gabriel Attal, a spokesman for Macron's party, went further, telling Public Senat TV: "The Italian position makes me vomit".

Collett is also a frequent guest on the radio show of David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader.

In December, he shared an anti-immigration article from the far-right European website Voice of Europe.

In March 2017 King was widely criticized after he tweeted support for the far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders.

"Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny".

Those comments earned praise from Duke and fellow "alt-right" leader Richard Spencer. "If he has any sense, Steve King should rapidly hit the undo button". "Last year, Donald Trump retweeted three tweets from the deputy leader of the far-right movement Britain First, which likes to proclaim it "invades" mosques". "Our shared civilization must be saved", he wrote. King wrote: "Diversity is not our strength". "Border Patrol, this one's for you".
