Stephen Miller’s Sinister Syllabus
Leaked emails from 2015 and 2016 show one of Trump’s top advisers trying to teach Breitbart editors a thing or two about white nationalism.

By Jamelle Bouie
Opinion columnist, Nov. 15, 2019

As I’ve been saying for a long time, the trajectory of the zeitgeist is away from thinking in terms of objective principles and instead toward thinking just about how we already know who are the Goodies and who are the Baddies, and the Baddies deserve to have their faces stamped on forever by the boot of the Goodies.

  8. Miller is a white nationalist and is therefore evil

    Thankfully Trump is about to be impeached

    Roger Stone has been found guilty just like all of Trumps other minions

    If you support Trump you are a traitor and pure evil

    I really pity Jamelle, it’s like the whole “A boy named Sue” thing.

    My parents revealed to me when I was a child, if I’d been a girl, my name would have been Janelle. It’s an amalgamation of my grandmothers names but STILL. Apparently my dad couldn’t throw an X so he had three boys and no Janelle.

    But to have a boy and purposely name him Jamelle? Now that’s just cruel. Anyone who that happens to has a grudge against the entire world. They just want to burn it down.

    Thank you for your response – disproving Mr Sailer’s contention that we live in a comic book age of good guys in white hats and bad guys in black hats.

    I myself doff my black top hat, swish my black cape, and twirl my black mustachios at you in gratitude.

    What I think is interesting here, is that the NYT, which is used to destroying people by proving their ‘racism’ has pulled their usual stunt on Stephen Miller. And I don’t think it’s going to work.

    I think this could really be a shift of narratives moment. Here the NYT is saying, ‘this man is beyond the pale, Trump MUST fire him.’ But Trump isn’t going to fire him, and if everybody just shrugs their shoulders, the NYT will look impotent.

    My guess here is that the NYT will DEMAND that Miller be fired, and he won’t be. And when everybody else just moves on we will know that the NYT is no longer running shit.

    It’s like a high school power struggle, and I think the mean girl will lose.

    That’s a song from my very very very small boyhood – back before I knew it was a comic parody. Watching it now I just chapped words I was too young to understand when I was as small as I was when I last heard this song. His dad left him nothing but some geklapped hoishanes!

  29. Moshe says:

    If all they have on him is sincere adult missives regarding immigration policy issues I really dom’t see how they can expect anyone at all to care or even take any notice. I mean, is this contrary to why he was hired and what he has said in public?

    I mean when the time comes that the knives arw drawn on me they’ll have whatsapp messages of me saying that with my antics I’m attempting to start a new holocaust. That sort of humor won’t necessarily be read as such by people less charitably minded. But until they have racist jokes from Miller (which I have zero problem with so long as they’re jokes to an audience that understands them as such) I don’t see what they even think they are pointing and sputtering about – that he also says in private what he says in public?

  36. @Cedric Jefferson

    Better trolling please.

    Can we get the Duck back? Quality varied but some of TD’s best efforts were comic gold.

    The Mike Krauthammar guy did a pretty good immitation of the Jewish genocidalist. It wasn’t the least bit funny, just annoying and depressing–you really can read this stuff in the NYT, WaPo, WSJ any day, and why have we tolerated these nasty people? Hard to see the value add, when Brett Stephens is on the job. But at least it was on target.

    But this “Cedric Jefferson”? Two efforts. Both lame. We don’t expect genius out of the box … but c’mon, bring something. You’re on the clock CJ. You get a few more swings, then you’re “cancelled”.

    Mr. Castagno at Citizen Truth: “Miller provides links to fringe white nationalist and anti-immigrant websites like VDare, American Renaissance, and Refugee Resettlement Watch to former Breitbart writer Katie McHugh in the emails, and praises the explicitly racist book “Camp of the Saints,” telling McHugh someone at Breitbart should write an article connecting its grotesque depiction of immigrants to the Pope’s pro-refugee rhetoric.”

    People’s lives have been destroyed over jokes they made on social media.

  41. can someone explain why Roger Stone did not testify at his trial? This was a jury trial. He needed to explain to the jury that his false statements to congress was political gamesmanship. Call Mueller to testify and ask why he dragged out his investigation. All sorts of tactics could be used. But you have to explain your side of the case to the jury, get some on your side. Stone does none of this. And why did he give the judge reason to silence him when he posted her picture in the cross hairs of a rifle scope? Like he wanted to avoid having to speak to his defense and answer questions.

    According to Ann Coulter, Miller is largely responsible for keeping people out of the administration who could actually implement the Trump campaign’s anti-immigration agenda. She claims he has good intentions, but wants to be the “immigration guy” in the White House and is unwilling to share any of the credit.

    It’s strange, but as soon as I saw this photo, I assumed there was something wrong.

    Like they were part of a cult or there was incest or something ugly was just under the surface!

    I’m not even kidding. I have zero idea what this show is or what it’s about, but I instantly assume there is something ‘off’ about these people. I realize, I’ve been conditioned to think this way. It’s an amazing thing to become aware of this phenomenon, and how I’ve been shaped by media.

    I’ve never seen any evidence that Roger Stone is especially smart or that he was ever effective as a political fixer. He’s a weirdo and a flake. He has Richard Nixon’s face tattooed on his back. WTF?? Reputedly, he was also a wife-swapper. Paul Manafort had a cuckold fetish. This is the brain-trust that Trump initially put together to run his campaign.

  49. @Steve Richter

    You don’t volunteer for your own auto-da-fé.

    He exercised one of the few rights remaining to him.

  50. For some reason Stephen Miller just gets under the skin of a lot of these “progressives”.

    I’m guessing that the sight of a smart Jewish guy who is not a minoritarian and “tear whitey down!” open borders loon, but proudly loyal to his fellow Americans and to preserving Western Civilization … is just so out of place and discombobulating to the mental world of even non-Jewish minoritarians
    like this Bouie bozo.

    @Mr. Anon

    There was a new book out that surveyed a bunch of people, and apparently perversions differ by politics– conservatives are into swinging and liberals are into sadomasochism (on average). My theory is that conservatives value the marriage bond (and get off by transgressing it) and liberals think inequities of power are evil (and get off by doing those).

    Whatever their fetishes, they won. Michelangelo was probably gay, but the Sistine Chapel looks amazing.

    @Art Deco

    Yeah, he had Lewandowsky to start with. Manafort was the guy he brought in when he “got serious”. The fact that Trump ever employed weirdos like Stone and Manafort does not speak well for his judgment. But, as we have since come to learn, Trump’s judgment ain’t all that good.

  60. @Barnard

    Well they took out Flynn at the very beginning by threatening to go after his son (who had a newborn at the time) and blatantly flouting every professional norm and daring him the do anything about it, knowing his own counsel was against him. That had a helluva chilling effect on draining the swamp.

    Then the very day they Gestapoed Stone live on CNN the mouth of Sauron went on MSNBC and explicitly said Don Jr. was next. That’s when Trump understandably caved on wall funding.

    If he was going after Hunter after that more power to him.

  61. @Mr. Anon

    He is certainly odd. But in a calculated way. He is calculated and has been successful – meaning he is intelligent. An average IQ person will know that if they do not present a defense or appeal to the jury they are going to be convicted. Even politically motivated prosecutors do not bring a case on no evidence.

    It is pretty clear he tanked his own case. And he deliberately compelled the judge to silence him. Why did he do that? He cannot even be sure Trump will pardon him. If it turns out Trump knew why Stone has stayed silent then democrats can easily make an abuse of office case against him.

  63. The ” white race ” simply does not exist. It is and always has been called the Caucasian Race.

    Euphemistically labeled “white supremacists and white nationalists ” are grotesquely insecure, fear ridden, hate driven, inferior to everyone, idiotic, imbecilic, and moronic Caucasian trash with their heads permanently locked up their rectums.

    These pathetic losers do not represent or speak for all Caucasians. They are in fact a tiny minority of Caucasian Americans and an even tinier minority of all Americans.

    They are heartless, mindless, soulless, sub-human barbarians.
