    White Supremacist Strategy Growing-Up

    As odious as this sounds, the separation of immigrant children from their parents is a strategy to rally Trump’s “deplorable” base, to counter Democratic engagement in the midterms, so Trump can avoid impeachment by

    keeping the feckless sycophants and sympathizers of the GOP in control of Congress. The policy was reportedly designed by White House Senior Advisor for Policy Stephen Miller.


    Miller is a human contradiction. Born Jewish, and raised in the affluent, and predominantly liberal community of Santa Monica, California, Miller chose instead to embrace conservatism, and is connected to the “alt-right”.

    The alt-right is a contradiction as well. Claiming not to be National Socialist (Nazi, which is also not at all socialist) in nature, the alt-right is certainly neo-nazi, and more. It is, in fact, the coalition of neo-nazis, klansmen,

    and other nativists, and anti-feminists which coalesced online, to become the connective tissue of the hate movement that underlies Trump’s base, and has spread world-wide).


    Perhaps the best way to describe the alt-right it is in corporate speak, because this is at once a merger between hate groups, and a
    rebranding of them. For example, in the 2017 documentary
    White Right: Meeting the

    Enemy
    by Emmy and Peabody Award winning film-maker Deeyah Khan, there is a scene where Khan is witness to the removal of Nazi swastikas from the shields carried by neo-nazi foot soldiers, to be replaced by decals

    bearing the Othala Rune, a lesser known symbol used by Nazi Germany, and the new symbol of the Alt-right. This as they prepared to march in Charlottesville, Virginia, where counter protester Heather Heyer was murdered

    by an alt-right terrorist using a car to mow down protesters — to which President Trump responded by declaring that there were “very fine people” on both sides of the conflict.

    Miller’s connections to the Alt-Right are well documented. Emails uncovered by the Jewish blog the Electronic Intifida showed that Miller and Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer worked together while they were students at

    Duke University, where the racist subculture germinated. And indeed, Spencer has claimed to have been Miller’s mentor. And Miller’s own words and actions connect him inexorably to the “one ring to rule them all” of hate

    groups, the alt-right. Speaking at an alt-right conference, Miller said, “To be white is to be a striver, a crusader, an explorer and a conqueror. We build, we produce, we go upward. And we recognize a central lie of American

    race relations. We don’t exploit other groups — we don’t gain anything from their presence. They need us, and not the other way around.” He added, falsely, “America was, until this past generation, a white country,

    designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”


    Miller got his big break when he was a junior at Duke University when the school’s Lacrosse team was accused of raping and race-shaming a stripper, and Miller defended the players doggedly, getting him appearances on

    Fox News, and CNN. From there, he went to work for right wing members of the House of Representatives, Michelle Bachmann, and John Shadegg, and then to the staff of then Senator Jefferson Beuregard Sessions of

    Alabama. This isn’t the first time Sessions and Miller have, together, worked to destroy the dreams of those fleeing oppression, murder, pervasive violence, and narco-states below the southern border of the United States.

    In 2013, when President Obama led Congress to the brink of a bipartisan deal to create a path to legal citizenship for such refugees, Sessions, with Miller’s support, led the charge that killed the bill.

    From there, Miller went to Trump’s White House, and Sessions to head Trump’s Department of Justice as Attorney General. At the White House, Miller worked with Steve Bannon to craft Trump’s racist Muslim ban. And then,

    to craft Trump’s immigration policy, a plan to tear undocumented and immigrant families apart, which Sessions is overseeing. Something Miller’s own family condemns. The Nazi Playbook ~


    Which brings us to today, when Trump tweeted this bit of classic fear-mongering, supremacist talk, right out of Hitler’s propaganda minister Joesph Goebbels‘ playbook:
