Those Maleficent Men and Their Lying Machines

From The Chronicle (Duke University):

Stephen Miller, White House senior advisor […] drew a firestorm of media attention this week after hundreds of his emails with a former Breitbart editor were reported by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Miller, an immigration hardliner who was reportedly an architect of President Donald Trump’s controversial “Muslim ban,” sent the emails to Katie McHugh, then an editor at Breitbart, in 2015 and 2016. The SPLC report paints a picture in which Miller would send information and story ideas—sometimes citing VDare, which has published work by white nationalists, and InfoWars, which is known for promoting conspiracy theories—to McHugh, who then often wrote about the topics for Breitbart.

The emails prompted a joint statement from the leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, Black Caucus, Hispanic Caucus and Asian Pacific American Caucus Thursday, calling for Miller’s resignation.

In the emails, Miller referenced the racist book “Camp of the Saints.” He also repeatedly cites President Calvin Coolidge, who signed the Immigration Act of 1924 to limit immigration based on national origins.

As Amazon and other retailers began to pull Confederate flag merchandise in the wake of a white nationalist killing nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, Miller suggested McHugh look into communist flag merchandise on the online retailer’s website, according to the SPLC’s report, to show the “stunning corporate hypocrisy that defines our modern culture.”

The more-than-900 emails SPLC says it reviewed were sent from March 2015 to June 2016—a period in which Miller was an aide to then-Senator Jeff Sessions, who later became Trump’s attorney general, and during the first part of Miller’s time with Trump’s campaign.

From Salon:

The White House claimed that Trump adviser Stephen Miller was the victim of “anti-Semitism” and smears after leaked emails showed that he promoted white nationalism and anti-immigrant rhetoric through the far-right news outlet Breitbart.

…snip…

While Miller has yet to comment on the report, a White House official asserted that the Trump adviser was the real victim.

“This is clearly a form of anti-Semitism to levy these attacks against a Jewish staffer,” an unnamed White House official told Axios.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told The Washington Post that she had not seen the report but claimed that the SPLC, a respect civil rights nonprofit, was an “utterly-discredited, long-debunked far-left smear organization,” even though the emails were handed to them by McHugh.

“They are beneath public discussion, even in The Washington Post,” Grisham said.

As a Jew, let me state for the record that Miller is a piece of shit and a racist and a bigot, but he is not a victim of anti-Semitism.

    we have a cancer in our society that is metastasizing. chemotherapy can’t come soon enough!

    • At least the tumor named Roger Stone got excised today. Plenty more to go, but it’s a start. What’s funny is that Roger Stone has a Richard Nixon tattoo on his back. Many people are celebrating that Tricky Dick will finally be going to jail. 😆

  2. Gaack. Only Angelina Jolie could pull off that look.

    The Camp of the Saints is the Atlas Shrugged of racism. It’s a pretty wild read if you can stomach it. I haven’t looked at VDare in years, but I remember some pretty ugly stuff. If Miller has been favorably citing those kinds of sources, he’d better quit now, before the nature of what they have to offer starts being exposed to the mass public mind.

    I had no idea he was Jewish. I’m not surprised that they’re bleating about anti-Semitism. It’s a desperate ploy, but it’s pretty much all they’ve got.

    • Yep, Stephen Miller was born into the tribe. I’m surprised you didn’t know he’s Jewish. A couple of years ago, one of his uncles wrote an article about how his family fled anti-Jewish pogroms, came to this country and achieved the “American dream.” He lamented what might have happened to his family had someone like his nephew been in charge of immigration when his ancestors came here. Oh, here it is. You can read it for yourself.

      I remember VDare from years ago. I don’t remember if I ever went to the site, but I know that I saw some of the filth they publish there. I have no appetite for reading The Camp of the Saints or anything else Stephen Miller would suggest.

      You don’t think Miller’s receding hairline (can we still call it that when it’s halfway down the back of his head?) sets off the cowl nicely? I’m sure he’ll be disappointed to hear that. 😉

  3. Stephen Miller, a puny looking little man is yet another member of an odd bunch of, off the hook people that Twittler assembled as members of his team. All these folks are at odds with a democratic government and in my thinking, would like to replace it with something akin to Nazi Germany and Putin style Russia. They seem to be a pitiful and desperate lot that gravitated toward Trump like bees to honey. How in the world does one man manage to put so many deviants on ones staff? I am one paranoid individual but it seems to me that all of this was orchestrated by something very sinister that would benefit Russia. The anti- Semitism is a joke in Miller’s case.

    • Twitler’s thugs remind me of Hitler’s thugs. He rounded up a bunch of misfits and has-beens, because those are the only people who would want to be associated with him. What’s that saying about water seeking it’s own level?

    No one attacks Miller for being Jewish. We attack him for being a raving bigot.

    That’s not the same thing.

    Also, Hi, Nonnie! It’s been a long time, I know.

    • Ken! What a wonderful surprise. I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It has been a long time—way too long, but you’re here now, and that’s a very good thing. Whenever my son’s birthday rolls around, I always think about you and your youngest (if he is, indeed, still your youngest), because they share it, and a birthday shared is a sweeter one.
