This has been condemned by the Left, including the most respectable, powerful version of the the Left, the Washington Post:
"Wow, fact check bigots, you don't actually have a civilization or identity and you can replace an entire population without consequences." https://t.co/Aw0OIbo3KE— VDARE (@vdare) March 12, 2017
Of course, as we responded on Twitter, what King said is perfectly true:
Steve King is right. Obviously right. It's not even debatable that he's right. Journalist scum just don't want us to be able to say it.— VDARE (@vdare) March 12, 2017
It's a Hate Fact, like the time King said there were more drug smugglers than valedictorians among the Dreamers.(This is true , we counted both.) The Turks rioting in Rotterdam right now may have been born in Holland. If one of them committed an act of terrorism, either in the Hague, Syria, or New York, headlines would refer to them as "Dutch", and we'd hear that they were "native-born", "home-grown", and had been "radicalized."
But they think they're Turks!
They have Turkish fathers, Turkish mothers, live in Turkish neighborhoods, shop at Turkish shops, and have coffee in Turkish coffee shops, where they drink Turkish coffee. (Turkish coffee shops in Turkish neighborhoods do not allow women.) That's not a Holland that anyone would recognize as Dutch.
Those are the babies of the Turkish workers who arrived in Holland in the 1960s, and they're rioting on behalf of the President of Turkey.
So King is right, in spite of the Left and, of course, the cuckservative right:
Is it worth making the obvious point that what American history has been about is "restoring" ourselves with "somebody else's babies?" https://t.co/DZAjW670Ur— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) March 12, 2017
The attack on King reminds me of the attack on the Sam Francis for saying, in 1994, that
The civilization that we as whites created in Europe and America could not have developed apart from the genetic endowments of the creating people, nor is there any reason to believe that the civilization can be successfully transmitted to a different people.Francis was fired from the Washington Times for that, but the first part, about the genetic endowments, may be said to have been scientifically proven by Gregory Clark's work on the genetics of England, in particular.
The second part, about civilization not being successfully transmitted, has been shown repeatedly in post-colonial Africa...and in Detroit.
But the fact that something is true doesn't make it popular. Paul Ryan, in particular, can be expected to attack King once again for telling the truth.
