Is White Supremacy the New Normal of the Republican Party?

When the "good congressman from Iowa" feels free to say "culture and demographics are our destiny," isn't that throwing racism out into the open as not just an accepted way of life but as the only way of life for maintaining a white America?

"Somebody else's babies" means black, brown, Muslim or "other" babies.
Is this how we should roll in America? Steve King says out loud that it is.

To my way of thinking, this is a holy fuck moment.

This is a white American politician going to Europe to find a Dutch white nationalist, Geert Wilders, to praise for his beliefs. One could call this the unified field theory of white racism.

In case you haven't noticed, this is Trumpism, née Steve Bannonism, run amok. Shouldn't we have expected this? Aren't we seeing this in the anti-Semitic bomb threats and cemetery vandalism, as well as the increase in white men shooting random -- mostly Asian -- immigrants? Haven't we seen this in the open celebration by white nationalists since Trump's ascension?
