Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has twice promoted a website that was exposed for promoting content aligned with white supremacy, anti-Semitic,
and denying the Holocaust.

An article posted by Media Matters, written by Eric Hananoki, has revealed that Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was caught posting links to a website that advocates for the “geographical separation of the races,” states that Jewish people are conspiring against Europe and the United States, and pushes Holocaust denialism."
The article continues by labeling King as a "white supremacist congressman" who is no stranger to posting bigotry infused content from numerous controversial media outlets.
King was called out for posting two tweets in particular and linking to a website called The New Observer, which posts articles by an anonymous name such as "TNO Staff." The New Observer website was considered controversial for the "white supremacy" type of content they had allegedly posted.
Some of his controversial tweets are as follows.
Six months to remove all illegal immigrants. Pakistan & Afghanistan doing sweeping deportations. Too hard 4 America? https://t.co/w7EQQW1Plu— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) January 6, 2017
Four “Dreamers” doing the work that Americans won’t do. https://t.co/FDH5yaXJrS— Steve King (@SteveKingIA) February 3, 2018
Hananoki also revealed some controversial articles posted by The New Observer, showing the consistent anti-Semitic spins on their writing.
The New Observer is a virulently anti-Semitic website. Here are some headlines that were posted on the website before King’s February tweet:
“Jews at ‘Forefront of Welcoming’ Invasion”
“Jews Boast of Owning Hollywood -- But Slam Gentiles Who Say the Same”
“World Jewish Congress and Official German Jewry Welcome Nonwhite Invasion"
“US Jews, Muslims Join Forces to Help Nonwhite Invaders in Europe”
“Pro-Invasion Jewish Lobby Renews Attack on Trump”
At this point, it seems like King may want to stop posting links to websites of that nature. He should do his research before sharing links to websites such as The New Observer, as it looks fairly bad to have others point out numerous instances of him sharing content that is related to white supremacy, bigotry, or anti-Semitism.
It's not a good look, that's for sure.
