Whether you agree that unchecked immigration by those with no desire to assimilate to their new culture, causing a precarious clash of worlds is a bad thing, or not, there’s a way of diplomatically expressing yourself.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) did it exactly the wrong way.

From The Hill:

King retweeted a message from an account labeled Voice of Europe, which labels itself as a “news/media” organization on Facebook but does not appear to be affiliated with the government-funded Voice of America broadcasting service.

Garden variety troll site?

Probably.

The “Wilders” he’s referring to is Geert Wilders.

The tweets follow reports that the far-right, anti-Islam and ant-immigrant Wilders, who has been referred to as the “Dutch Donald Trump” is polling in second place ahead of the national elections.

Of course, as it is prone to do, social media lit up.

At least one person was totally stoked on King’s tweets, however.

Whatever point King was trying to make, few will see past the white nationalist connotations to get it.
