Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King on Sunday tweeted a message in support of Dutch nationalist politician Geert Wilders that included a concern that the children of recent immigrants can’t “restore our civilization.”
That message drew massive backlash from liberals and even a few Republicans.

“Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can’t restore our civilization with somebody else’s babies,” King tweeted.

Wilders is a dark horse candidate for the Dutch presidency and has campaigned on the promise of “de-Islamizing” the Netherlands. He believes Islam is incompatible with western civilization.
Critics of King’s tweet accused it of being an endorsement of racism, Nazism and even genocide.
