Steve King Laments the Greeks, The First Cucks

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
