Tom McCarthy, “He’s So Openly Racist’” Why Does Iowa Keep Electing Steve King to Congress?” The Guardian

“Steve King – he’s very dangerous,” said Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a professor of history at New York University specializing in European fascist movements. “He’s like busy as a beaver – he’s assiduously working to extend the culture of the European right to America, and to make America a partner in this effort to derail democracy.”

“They’re extreme parties, and the FPÖ is on record as saying they want to end all immigration and they want to put sanctions against immigrants who won’t integrate,” said Ben-Ghiat, the history professor. “They want to ban Islam because they say it’s a form of fascism. These are very extreme, intransigent positions, and certainly not in harmony with democracy.”
