… and you can’t prove he is.
On Friday, twenty-five members of the House of Representatives sent President Trump a letter outlining their manufactured outrage over his employment of Stephen Miller. Their reason? They believe the Jewish political advisor is a white nationalist (the ideology that has rained terror on Jewish people since its inception).
Miller has been in the crosshairs of the Democratic party’s scope since early 2016 when he first emerged on the campaign trail with then-candidate Trump, and the assault on his character has been picking up steam since November when a far-left smear group released an exposé on Miller.
That group is the Southern Poverty Law Center. The SPLC did their best to depict Mr. Miller as a wicked racist that pushes white supremacist propaganda unto giddy, unsuspecting journalists. Since they were able to publish these nefarious claims next to Stephen Miller’s name without consequence, the ante is up and at least 80 Democrat Representatives have lobbied together to call for his termination. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez quickly started a petition to have Miller fired which as of now, claims to have 20,000 signatures.
An article in The Hill, titled “Twenty-five Jewish lawmakers ask Trump to fire Stephen Miller over ‘white nationalist’ comments”, ignores that this is a completely partisan effort led by a handful of Democratic members of the House of Representatives. It also implies there are “white nationalist comments” but not a single one appears in the piece.
The strongly worded memo cites the leaked emails from a former Breitbart writer as they continue the unchecked defamation of one of the president’s closest advisors:
“…[W]e are calling on you to immediately relieve White House Senior Advisor Stephen Miller of all government responsibilities and dismiss him for your Administration. His documented support for white nationalist and virulently anti-immigrant tropes is wholly unacceptable and disqualifying for a government employee.
As demonstrated by his recently released emails, Miller frequently disseminated the views of multiple hate groups supportive of white supremacy and other vile ideologies throughout 2016.”
After receiving over 900 emails from disgruntled ex-Breitbart employee Katie McHugh (she was fired in 2017 for sending anti-Islamic tweets and has now become the poster child for the Alt-Left), the SPLC released their lame exhibit of evidence which includes correspondences between Miller and Breitbart employees.
It is impossible for anybody to actually quote Stephen Miller and prove that’s he supports white nationalist ideology, a task that would be fairly simple if he did. Instead, the left-wing media and their friends at SPLC use quotes from actual white nationalists, even Adolf Hitler, to filler the article and brutally manipulate an association with Stephen Miller.
For example, Michael Edison Hayden writes:
“Miller refers to President Calvin Coolidge multiple times in emails to Breitbart. Coolidge signed the Immigration Act of 1924. The legislation was based on eugenics and severely limited immigration from certain parts of the world into the United States. White nationalists lionize Coolidge, in part for his remarks condemning race mixing.
‘There are racial considerations too grave to be brushed aside for any sentimental reasons,’ Coolidge wrote in a 1921 magazine article, as quoted on American Renaissance. ‘Biological laws tell us that certain divergent people will not mix or blend. … Quality of mind and body suggests that observance of ethnic law is as great a necessity to a nation as immigration law.’
In ‘Mein Kampf,’ Hitler portrayed the U.S. law as a potential model for the Nazis in Germany.”
Quite the buildup! Let’s examine what Stephen Miller actually writes about President Calvin Coolidge in his emails published towards the end of the same hit piece:
Murch, Aug. 4, 2015, 6:22 p.m. ET: “Mark Levin just said there should be no immigration for several years. Not just cut the number down from the current 1 million green cards per year. For assimilation purposes.”
Miller, Aug. 4, 2015, 6:23 p.m. ET: “Like Coolidge did. Kellyanne Conway poll says that is exactly what most Americans want after 40 years of non-stop record arrivals.”
Miller, Sept. 13, 2015, 7:53 p.m. ET: “this is a good chance to expose that ridiculous statue of liberty myth. Poem has nothing to do with it: [Link] Indeed, two decades after poem was added, Coolidge shut down immigration. No one said he was violating the Statue of Liberty’s purpose…
And finally, this one:
Miller, April 28, 2015, 11:38 p.m. ET: Something tells me there is not a Calvin Coolidge exhibit.
Damning, isn’t it?
What you just read is one of the most obvious examples of sophistry; using information to deceive. The SPLC uses a charged history about President Calvin Coolidge, white nationalists, Hitler and the Nazis that is totally irrelevant in order to cause an emotional reaction in the reader. That way, the readers are less likely to use rationality and judgement when they finally look through the Stephen Miller emails themselves (which I encourage everyone to do).
The Southern Poverty Law Center has a sordid record of using it’s “hate group” watch list to equate innocuous people and organizations to groups like neo-Nazis. This horrendous practice has spurred events like a shooting at an Orthodox Christian public advocacy organization. A gunman, hellbent on committing a masacre, opened fired on employees at Family Research Council and planned on rubbing Chick-fil-A sandwiches on the corpses.

The Democratic party is eager to participate in this sort of social engineering, particularly on this topic as they have been faced with a lot of criticism of anti-Semitism within their own ranks. Representatives Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib have garnered many headlines in their short time in public office for their anti-Semitic statements. Apologies were only forthcoming after they were denounced by members of their own party like Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Now, Rep. Omar helps leads the assault against Miller using the SPLC’s leaked emails as ammunition.
The left-wing and their propaganda bullhorns want to crucify Miller because he presents a very real obstacle. His influence and policies have made their way into the White House and we are seeing a real impact when it comes to his focus of immigration. Illegal immigrant crossings are down significantly as we move toward a merit-based system for legal immigration. Travel bans are successfully imposed on nations that (whether due to corruption or war or both) cannot adhere to our now stricter vetting procedures and the Democrats hate it.
After decades of career politicians saying these issues were too complex to be tackled, President Trump is accomplishing a lot while making it look easy – and they know Stephen Miller plays an essential role. At the very heart of this smear job is the assumption that wanting immigration restrictions is all it takes to be a white supremacist.
Democrats, instead of defending their pro-immigration rhetoric that sounds like a lawless, borderless dystopian to most voters, choose to attack Stephen Miller’s character. If they’re successful in pressuring President Trump into removing Miller from his Administration, they’ll have triumphantly connected conservative immigration beliefs to white nationalism.
Stephen Miller is far from the first that this tactic is being used on. Back in August, I spoke with Amy Wax, a tenured law professor who had just experienced a character assassination for her immigration philosophy. The New Yorker ran an interview with her under the title “A Penn Law Professor Wants to Make America White Again.” The slander campaign resulted in amendments to bar her from teaching. An excerpt:
[Professor Wax stated] “Once we’ve labeled something racist, the conversation stops.” Should it? Isn’t the point of free speech being able to discuss ideas that you might not agree with and actually make you uncomfortable, too? Why even have convictions if you won’t defend them?The Character Assassination of Amy Wax and Her Response 8/30/2019
These consequences will mean that anybody who doesn’t participate in liberal groupthink about immigration will be subjected to their own titles of white supremacy. Much like how SPLC manipulated a weird history of Calvin Coolidge and Hitler as a way to correlate Miller to white nationalism. If they can vilify Miller as a white nationalist, any voter that shares one or more of his stances will find themselves besmirched as well.
I assure you, it does not matter if Hitler once agreed with President Coolidge’s immigration plan. Hitler was also a vegetarian, but we don’t accuse modern vegans of “lauding Hitler’s ideas” because that would be just as ludicrous.
Stephen Miller responded to the newest attacks by the twenty-five Democrats on FOX where he stated, “It’s an attempt on the part of the Democratic Party to attack and demonize a Jewish staffer. Make no mistake, there is a deep vein of anti-Semitism that is running through today’s Democratic Party.” Check out the segment below:
