Racist Rep. Steve King Accused of Anti-Semitism After Falsely Claiming Ukraine Whistleblower Is Son of George Soros



U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) is once again being accused of anti-Semitism after he posted a tweet claiming the Ukraine whistleblower is the son of billionaire philanthropist George Soros. King’s tweet featured four photos of Alexander Soros with Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, Elizabeth Warren, and Nancy Pelosi.

Alexander Soros is not the Ukraine whistleblower, in not only for the fact that he is not a government employee, nor an intelligence community official.

The tweet was deleted, either by King, someone with access to his account, or by Twitter, but not before it was screenshotted and posted to Twitter:

Politifact debunked the claim these photos were of the whistleblower earlier this week, not that King cared.

King, who is a white supremacist and a white nationalist, was stripped of all his committee assignments after complaining to The New York Times, “White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?”

Today is not the first time King has engaged in an anti-Semitic attack against George Soros.

Right wing extremist U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar (R-AZ) retweeted King’s ugly tweet:

Rep. King went on to tweet out photos of the man the right wing media has identified as the alleged whistleblower, possibly further endangering that person’s well-being.

(NCRM will not post that tweet or those photos out of concern for his safety.)

Many took to Twitter to urge others to report the tweet.

King, who has a long and unrepentant history of racist and bigoted remarks, previously was best-known for accusing undocumented immigrants of having “calves the size of cantaloupes” from “running drugs across the Mexican border.”

Here’s how some are responding to King’s attack today:
