Fox News Racism The Trump Adminstration WTF?!

Stephen Miller: White Americans Must ‘Push Back’ Or They’ll ‘Lose Their Heritage’

Before we get to what he said Monday during an appearance on Fox News, it needs to be stated that former White House aide Stephen Miller is one of the most disgusting bigots on the face of the planet and should be behind bars instead of giving interviews.

Miller was a guest on Laura Ingraham’s nightly propagandapalooza/TV show, and she teed up Miller nicely with this bit of compete nonsense:

“This kind of goes hat in hand with their entire agenda about America as a country being awful rotten racists, we have to atone for all of the past sins and the only way to do that is to take money and power from one group based on race and give it to another group based on race. But this is where it’s going if people keep electing Democrats.”

Bullshit! What Democrats want is for systemic racism in this country to be acknowledged and dealt with. And they also want to see the rich pay their fair share of taxes that can be used to help benefit all of us, no matter what race we may be.

As you’d expect, Miller took Ingraham’s statement and ran with it, not even bothering to hide the fact that he was eager to spew fear and hatred:

“Correct. This is where it’s going and this is just the beginning. The left’s goal is power and they’ve figured out that the way they can accumulate power, power over your healthcare decisions, power over your finances, power over life and death is to use race as their cudgel. To use race as their sword, and that’s what we’re seeing right now.

“And they’re saying that because you are a racist country, because you are systemically bigoted, we need to take all the power and decide as a government who gets medicine, who gets to live in safety, who gets rights and who doesn’t.”

That’s some dandy psychological projection you got going there, Steve. Republicans pretend they believe in freedom while they simultaneously pass laws that tell women what they can do with their bodies and restrict the right to vote based on skin color and economic status.

But Miller wasn’t quite finished with his blatant projection, using a word that is best applied to him and anyone like him:

“It is fascist and if we don’t push back and reclaim our heritage as a nation of legal equality, equal justice, we are going to lose everything that we love about America.”

Fascist? Hmm. Let’s take a quick look at the definition of fascism:

“Fascism is a system of government led by a dictator who typically rules by forcefully and often violently suppressing opposition and criticism, controlling all industry and commerce, and promoting nationalism and often racism.”

Violence and suppression of criticism. Promoting nationalism and racism. That sounds a hell of a lot like the basic tenets of Trumpism and right-wing authoritarianism that’s become the calling card of the GOP in the Age of Trump.

So spare us the bullshit, Stephen. You’re the one who stripped immigrant children from their parents and put them into internment camps. You’re the problem with this country, and you cannot be allowed to ever have power again.
