GOP Rep. Steve King Retweets Prominent British Nazi

Iowa congressman Steve King has attracted a backlash after apparently endorsing a Twitter post from a prominent British far-right activist.

King tweeted, "Europe is waking up. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength", King tweeted at the time. Last year, he toasted the deportation of the first Dreamer protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Collett is one of Britain's most high-profile Neo-Nazis and has repeatedly expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and has called himself a "Nazi sympathizer". He was featured on a British documentary on the BNP - "Young, Nazi and Proud" that was broadcast in 2002. Collett, who has 35,000 followers on Twitter, has also stated that HIV is a "friendly disease" because it disproportionately affects blacks, homosexuals and drug-users.

He was sacked from his party position shortly there after. "Will America.in time?" The tweet, which can be viewed below, has since been deleted.

King did not return a request for comment from HuffPo on Tuesday when asked about the retweet. The congressman has previously said the US should not apologize for slavery, questioned the birthplace of former US President Barack Obama and declared white civilizations to be superior to all others.

He has written that illegal migrants from Mexico "have got calves the size of cantaloupes because they're hauling 75 pounds of marijuana across the desert".

Moreover, in March 2017 King was widely criticized after he tweeted support for the far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders, stating, "Wilders understands that culture and demographics are our destiny", King said.
