Steve King Laments the Greeks, The First Cucks

Lauren Victoria Burke

Just a few moments ago Stephanie Ruhle was interviewing Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on MSNBC about immigration policy and maintaining the "American culture, the American civilization" in the face of immigrants from around world.

Here Ruhle asks King whether America hasn't always been a country of immigrants.

RUHLE: Couldn't Native Indians say that? This is a country of immigrants.

KING: Well, I'll just challenge you. Name a country that's not a country of immigrants. Every nation is a country of immigrants. These are our values that are here.

RUHLE: Greece is not a country -- Greece is not a country of immigrants.

KING: Well, I was in Greece not that long ago I asked why when they were digging up the statues that had their hair painted blond why I don't see very many blond Greeks. The guide said that's what 400 years of Turkish occupation will do for you. Maybe by conquest, maybe not by peaceful reasons.
