Stephen Miller, Stephen Miller, Stephen Miller....should be front page news everywhere

https://www.politico.com/story/2019/04/25/stephen-miller-testify-house-1289871


A trio of top Democrats demanded documents Thursday related to President Donald Trump’s recent staff shakeup at the Homeland Security Department.

In a letter to acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan, Reps. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) and Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) called on the department to turn over communications tied a spate of resignations and forced exits earlier this month. The lawmakers cited reports that White House senior adviser Stephen Miller had pressed department officials “to make extreme immigration policy decisions.”

4. You know, I hate to put it in these terms, but the white center right

won't give a hoot until you go after white people of their own ancestral background. I know this from talking to one. She's Irish-American and got defensive when I told her it was time to round up the Irish Americans who over stay their Visas. She immediately got defensive and said that they can stay as long as they contribute. After further inquiries I understand her point to mean that if they're engineers and their companies allow them to stay, they should not be the target of deportations. When I asked what would happen if they lost their jobs, she said that they can stay as long as they get another job. In other words, her prejudices allowed her to make concessions.

My surprise is that this immigration issue has been allowed to become an exclusive purging of brown-skinned people who have historically contributed by working jobs that most Americans think is beneath them. They're not taking anyone's job. On the other hand, we are not questioning why there are white undocumented immigrants who are allowed to work in jobs that are in direct competition with Americans? Why is no one asking the question?

If you make it clear that it's the white undocumented immigrants who are taking the jobs, and they should receive the same treatment, it won't take long for the center right to stop their aggressive stance against immigration in general.

7. I have lived in California since 1961.

I have, of course, met, worked with, gone to school with and been neighbors with many people. Believe it or not, I'm pretty sure I have known more illegal Canadians than Mexicans. During Reagans immigration raids in the 80s they raided a place where I worked and two Mexicans ran out the back door when they arrived. There were three illegal Canadians working there who were never even questioned.

I haven't heard anyone demanding a wall at the Canadian border. All this crap is not about citizenship, immigration or anything else but a pure hatred of Mexicans and other Latino people. Always has been. Period.

For fuck's sake, Trump's wife worked here illegally and he knew it.

Here in Northern California, the Mexicans have a saying: We didn't cross the border, it crossed us.

After the breakup of the Soviet Union, there was a big influx of immigrants from those Eastern European countries. This was during Poppy Bush’s administration, and there wasn’t a peep about illegal immigration from that area. When did Melania come from Slovenia??

19. No our nude first lady got a genius citizenship for posing naked

Our first nude lady is a genius at being naked. I think she should give the American people a private showing. She is a genius at taking off her clothes...what an accomplishment.

But it amazes me how the neo- Nazis today are so aligned with the Slavs. There was a time, when the Nazis took over Germany and our fathers and grandfathers beat the shit out of the mass murderers, when no self respecting Nazis would align themselves with Slavs like little man Putin and a Slovenian Sex Worker like our naked first lady.

The Nazis thought Slavs were subhuman and wanted to exterminate as many as possible.....I guess they changed their minds when the Slavs beat them.

28. She is either a sex worker made good and or Trump's handler for Putin.

According to the story she left the University of Ljubljana after 1 semester to become a "model"
in Milan. Although Melania's lack of college did not stop Trump from posting on his web site
that she had a 4 year degree in design/architecture.

We are way way down the rabbit hole now.

If you tell them she has a four year degree, then they will praise her for being educated. "Our smart FLOTUS!" If you say she dropped out after one semester and became a model, they will praise her for being a working class person just like them. "Hard working FLOTUS!" At the end of the day, though, it boils down to one thing: "Our hot, white FLOTUS."

43. Well these Nazis pick and choose which white people they support

The only person to die at the last large Nazi gathering in Charlottesville was a white woman.

They don't like Jewish people, they don't care for Catholics, they thought Slavs were subhuman.

The Nazis in Germany attacked Russia because they thought Slavs were too weak to fight back. Slavs like our first naked lady and Putin.

So it seems to me, these white supremacist just want to hate everyone and use the color of our skin as an excuse to hate some more than others. But in they end they hate us all because they are being manipulated by our American Capitalist Kings.

5. I hope this makes the case that the buffoon is just a decoy

People like Miller work behind the scenes, this ideas do not come from the buffoon, he is too tied up with tweeter and spewing stupidity all day, plus lets face it, he really is not very smart.

The deal is that the buffoon makes noise (decoy function), then the more evil people, like Miller, work behind the scenes while everyone is talking about the latest stupidity from the creature.

And I have been asking the same question on why are Democratic leaders were not looking at those behind the scenes? Although they may been and we just don't know about it. This is good news that now we now they are.

Interesting thing is that Miller's own family outed him out last year, they spoke at how evil the guy is.

22. The man is a racist and plays to a racist crowd.



http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/04/ilhan-omar-is-right-stephen-miller-is-a-white-nationalist.html


Stephen Miller is personally responsible for the most xenophobic policies of the most xenophobic presidency in modern American history. The senior White House adviser authored the travel ban that denied a wide variety of American Muslims the right to be visited by their overseas relatives. He implored the president to adopt a policy of family separation at the southern border, arguing that Central American families would be less likely to seek asylum in the United States if the U.S. government gained a reputation for subjecting their children to psychological torment. The public hated this policy, and the judiciary struck it down. Meanwhile, the Trump administration proved itself incapable of competently administering the program: the U.S. government ended up losing track of thousands of migrant children and allowing others to be legally adopted by U.S. citizens without their birth parents’ consent.

And yet Stephen Miller believes that the family separation policy was a success. In his view, having the U.S. government permanently break up a few hundred Central American families is an acceptable price to pay for discouraging such people from exercising their legal right to seek asylum in the United States. Therefore, Miller is advising the president to adopt “a modified version of the family separation policy known as ‘binary choice.’” As the New York Times explains:

Under a binary choice policy, which is highly controversial, migrant parents would be given a choice of whether to voluntarily allow their children to be separated from them, or to waive their child’s humanitarian protections so the family can be detained together, indefinitely, in jail-like conditions.
In response to this and other reports of Miller’s growing influence in the White House, Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar tweeted Monday, “Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage.”

31. Is Stephen Miller a nazi ?

Yes, unquestionably.

However, I would take this one step further. When you look at the totality of his extreme positions and the unpopular policies he has pushed, one thing becomes clear. The people most punished by his hatred are women.

Miller is behind the reinstatement of the Mexico City Accord and the anti-abortion measures spouted by trump when he rages about Planned Parenthood being "abortion factories." Remember trump said that "there should be some form of punishment" for women who seek abortions AND the physicians who perform the procedure.

This administration has sided with all of the repugnant bills being pushed through GA, OH, MO and other states. For years, trump was on the record as being "pro-choice." What changed ? Stephen Miller (and Steve Bannon, Thomas Homan), and let's not forget Scott Lloyd, who was head of the Refugee Resettlement Office, who kept meticulous records of girls' menstrual cycles while they were in detention, for the explicit purpose of controlling their reproductive status, and denying them their right to abortion. He has since been removed. Who do you think recommended him for that position ? If you said Stephen Miller, you'd be right.

So next time you or someone else wonders about who it is that Stephen Miller wants to punish, remember it's not just immigrants, people of color, poor people, but also half of the world's population.
