White supremacist Congressman Steve King is Orbán’s friend

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. has announced that the Republican Steering Committee voted unanimously to remove Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, from all committees after his comments about white nationalism. The Republicans revoked King’s assignments to the Judiciary, Agriculture, and Small Business Committees. McCarthy added that further moves have not been ruled out, including censuring or reprimanding him. “I think we spoke loud and clear that we will not tolerate this in the Republican Party.”

Ambassador Szemerkényi found Rep. King’s thoughts “inspiring”.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called King’s remarks unwelcome and unworthy of his elected position. “If he doesn’t understand why White Supremacy is offensive, he should find another line of work,” said McConnell. “There is no place in the Republican Party for an ideology of racial supremacy of any kind. I have no tolerance for such positions and those who espouse these views are not supporters of American ideals and freedoms,” he added. (Read more here.)

Rep. King is an active member of the Hungarian-American Caucus and a friend of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán. Last year he congratulated Orbán on his re-election and wrote that he and Hungary are the gold standard of “Western Christendom.”

King was also invited to the opening of the new Hungarian Embassy in Washington. In his opening speech, King expressed his admiration for Hungary’s leadership and seconded Orbán statement that diversity is not a strength but the enemy of “White Christian” culture. “Mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but a lower one.”

Ambassador Réka Szemerkényi shares Rep. King’s views and currently serves as executive vice president of the Center for European Policy Analysis (CEPA) in Washington. CEPA is generously supported financially by the Orbán regime via the Washington-based The Hungary Initiatives Foundation. Szemerkényi’s presence in the US is an embarrassment to Hungarian Americans. CEPA should dismiss her.
