Repubican Congressman Steve King from Iowa retweeted a British neo-Nazi on Tuesday. King has recently been the center of numerous controversies in which the congressman spread the views of white supremacists.

King tweeted, “Europe is waking up... Will America... in time?” with a link to an anti-immigrant tweet from political activist Mark Collett.

Collett is one of Britain’s most high-profile Neo-Nazis and has repeatedly expressed admiration for Adolf Hitler and has called himself a “Nazi sympathizer.”

In 2017 King praised far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders tweeting he, "Understands that culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies."

In 2015 King slammed Democrats who boycotted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to the U.S. Congress. “There were some 50 or so Democrats that decided they would boycott [Netanyahu’s] speech ... I don’t understand how Jews in America can be Democrats first and Jewish second and support Israel along the line of just following their president,” King told Boston Herald Radio’s “Boston Herald Drive” program.
