Diversity Must Not Be Questioned

On Friday, Republican Iowa Rep. Steve King, Congress’ foremost immigration hawk, tweeted out, “Diversity is not our strength. Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban, ‘Mixing cultures will not lead to a higher quality of life but a lower one.’”

The Iowa congressman followed up that tweet with this opinion, “Assimilation has become a dirty word to the multiculturalist Left. Assimilation, not diversity, is our American strength.”

King’s tweets soon became a lightning rod for outraged liberals and respectable conservatives. Some critics argued diversity was good and King was clearly inbred white trash.
