The SPLC and the Stephen Miller Emails

Stephen Miller (Trump's immigration Rasputin) is unbalanced, irrational and a hypocrite.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has a fascinating review of emails that Stephen Miller (Trump's immigration Rasputin) sent to Breitbart over a two year span. Hatewatch obtained over 900 of these missives and they demonstrate that Miller has an affinity for white supremacists and Neo-Nazis (perhaps that is redundant).

Absent from the SPLC's review of emails is the fact that Stephen Miller is Jewish. Here we have a Jewish guy collaborating with odious figures like white supremacist and anti-Semite Richard Spencer. Miller seems so obsessed with keeping brown people out of the United States that he is willing to work with anti-Semites to achieve his goal. To put it another way, Miller's racism trumps any sensitivity he might have in regards to his religion.

Then there is the hypocrisy. Miller and I have something in common. Our maternal ancestors came to the United States in 1903 from Belarus because of anti-Jewish pogroms. Some of Miller's ancestors never learned English. They spoke only Yiddish. (My maternal grandmother spoke English, my grandfather did not.)

For his part, Donald Trump has hired and retained a deranged racist. Trump has allowed Miller to implement his most hideous impulses. Trump has given Miller (one of Trump's longest serving advisers) free rein because Trump is a racist. Miller might have increased his inherent racism a notch to please the boss.

In any event, the SPLC post is a very interesting read. Well worth your time.
