Rep. Steve King, the Iowa Republic, known for hard positions on immigration and racist comments, challenged a conservative newspaper to release sound to prove that he had compared immigrants to “dirt.”
So Weekly Standard did.
The newspaper reported last week that the king, who won the return earlier this month, despite being called for his white nationalists’ comments, made the fire comment.
On Friday King tweeted in response that the newspaper had joined the Huffington Post “at the bottom of the lying journalistic chute.” He argued that the article’s reporter lay: “Just release the entire tape. Left lies are without original sources because they are fake and made accusations,” tweeted.
Standard on Saturday published a YouTube video containing the audio to the article. “We are in the story,” says editorial director Stephen Hayes.
The sign was detected discovered during a campaign stop on November 5 while the king bothered with followers in a restaurant. King discussed his “patented pheasant noodle soup” containing a straw of homegrown jalapeño paprika. Talking about the peppers he said:
Kings views are not exactly a secret – about immigration, he said on Twitter last year, “we can not restoring our civilization with someone else’s children. “
In August, King made an interview with the Austrian Liberation Party – founded by a former Nazi – where he spoke of the apparent decline in Western civilization and claimed immigrants replacing white Europeans.
Some top republicans including Steve Stivers, chairman of the House Republican Campaign Committee, have spaced from the king after Pittsburgh shot in a synagogue that saw 11 killing more attention to the legislator.
