WASHINGTON, DC - OCTOBER 26: Rep. Steve King (R-IA) questions witnesses during a House Judiciary Committee hearing concerning the oversight of the U.S. refugee admissions program, on Capitol Hill, October 26, 2017 in Washington, DC. The Trump administration is expected to set the fiscal year 2018 refugee ceiling at 45,000, down from the previous ceiling at 50,000.

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in recent months has retweeted a popular white nationalist YouTuber and a British neo-Nazi — with no apology and facing no consequence from his party or Congress.

He did it again Tuesday night, endorsing Faith Goldy, a white nationalist candidate for mayor of Toronto.

In December last year, Goldy recited the white nationalist slogan known as the “14 words” during an interview. “Are you trying to get me to say the 14 words?” she asked. “Do you want me to do it?”

“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children,” she said.

Around the same time, she joined the white nationalist King later retweeted, Lana Lokteff, and YouTuber Lauren Rose in a taped discussion. Right Wing Watch described the livestream as “full-throated endorsements of ethno-nationalism.”

Goldy called entho-nationalism — as opposed to “civic nationalism” — “the greatest propeller of human history when determining the maker or breaker of empire of civilization,” and asserted: “It is a natural tribal instinct for human communities to go with their own. So the question is, are we going to continue to work against nature and try to rise above it even though we’re 40, 50, 60 years into this experiment?”

In April, Goldy promoted a book written by the Romanian fascist Corneliu Codreanu that calls for eliminating “the Jewish menace,” as reported by PressProgress.

Goldy used to work for Rebel Media, considered by some a Canadian version of Breitbart News, until she was fired after attending the United The Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia and then giving an interview about it to a podcast affiliated with The Daily Stormer, the neo-Nazi website.

Her interviewer, Robert “Azzmador” Ray, eventually asked her if she’d ever seen her then-boss at Rebel, Ezra Levant, mix meat and dairy (Levant is Jewish). “If you ever offer him free bacon…” Goldy joked in response. After Goldy’s firing, The Daily Stormer called Levant “the great Canadian kike.”

Goldy rejects the white nationalist label, but has reported on non-existent “white genocide.”

She’s been endorsed by other Americans, as well: The anti-Muslim provocateur Laura Loomer endorsed her campaign. And the President’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, posed for pictures with her late last month. She’s been interviewed by the right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.

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.
