Iowa Republican Representative Steve King exposed his extremely conservative views as never before in an interview with the far-right propaganda website Unzensuriert, which translates as "uncensored" in English.

The interview was published in September and went unnoticed by the US media until the Huffington Post marked it.
In the interview, Sommerfeld asks: "In your opinion, is Islam the problem or Western liberalism?"
King responds by saying that it's like fighting a two-front war. How is it possible that the liberals, the leftists, on the one hand, can build an alliance with the right-wing, misogynistic and hard-line Islamic people, who have no tolerance for everything?
"If we do not defend Western civilization, then we will be subjugated by the people who are the enemies of the faith, the enemies of justice," King said.
He quoted an old NBC interview where he criticized Charlie Peirce after saying that the Republican convention was full of "old white men".
King replied, "That kind of conversation is a little tired and old, is not it, can you name another subgroup that has contributed the most?
When asked "more" than whites? & # 39; The king replied "More than Western civilization itself! No subgroup has contributed more to Western civilization & # 39;

"The person who murdered Mollie Tibbetts should never have been in the United States," he said.
& # 39; Liberals in the US UU They say that the death of Mollie Tibbetts is because the author was a man, who had nothing to do with him being a criminal, a criminal. And what I say to people who say that immigration is not part of their death is: then, go and tell your family, that if your murderer had been deported at the time he illegally set foot on American soil, his daughter would still be dead. & # 39; added.
He also criticized the low fertility rate of the US. UU And he said: "If we continue to abort our babies and import them a replacement in the form of violent youth, we are supplanting our culture, our civilization."
At several points in the interview, he uses the phrase "Western civilization," which he seems to define as white America.
Both addressed the theory of the Great Replacement, which is the idea that mass migration, like that of the Muslim majority countries, could lead to the extinction of European identity and white culture.
