Stephen Miller, Rightist Pioneer

Jean Guerrero
Hatemonger: Stephen Miller, Donald Trump, and the White Nationalist Agenda
New York: HarperCollins, 2020

I am going to ignore any detractors on the Right and come out and say that I admire Stephen Miller, the Jewish advisor to President Trump that spent a great deal of time shaping immigration regulations in favor of the white American people for the first time since the 1960s.

In Hatemonger, Jean Guerrero assesses Miller’s career from a hostile perspective. If one ignores the obvious bias, one can see how Rightist metapolitics of the 1990s helped craft a White House and West Wing in 2016 whose occupants helped America more than any other in recent memory.

Stephen Miller was clearly shaped by his experiences at the racially diverse Santa Monica High School. In the 1960s, proponents of racial integration claimed that whites exposed to non-whites as children would become “prejudice”-free. This was wrong, and has always been wrong. Wherever white meets the blacks and browns, white racial awareness increases. Blacks and Mestizos have considerable social pathologies and that fact eventually gets noticed.

According to Jean Guerrero, Miller was influenced by the conservative radio program The Larry Elder Show and Rush Limbaugh’s bestseller, The Way Things Ought to Be (1992). Miller rose to prominence when he called into Larry Elder to mention that Santa Monica High didn’t recite the pledge of allegiance. Miller plausibly claimed the school was a hotbed of anti-American Leftism. Indeed, a Canadian teacher had stood upon an American flag and smirked — it was supposed to be a lesson in understanding the power of symbols, but instead was interpreted as an insult against white Americans.

Miller’s appearance on Larry Elder and other Southern Californian radio shows brought him to the attention of David Horowitz, thanks to the area’s infamous media saturation.

David Horowitz is a prolific author and a former member of the New Left of the 1970s. However, one of his white friends was murdered by Black Panthers. The perpetrators were never brought to justice. At the time, the white Leftists that supported the Black Panthers were so mentally trapped by Negro Worship that they couldn’t go to the police to report Black Panther crime. This event caused Horowitz to re-evaluate the morality of Communism, Leftism, and the greater “civil rights” nonsense that he was supporting.

Horowitz is Jewish, but he believes that Anglo-Protestant Christians are central to American identity and Anglo-Christians threatened by the social revolutions of the 1960s as well as the “Clash of Civilizations.” He created an organization that engaged in activism at universities and his website FrontPage Mag.

You can buy Greg Johnson’s White Identity Politics here.

Miller was accepted into the elite Duke University. While there, he remained in contact with Horowitz and was involved in Horowitz’s pro-Iraq War, pro-Israel, and (neoconish) Right-wing activism. This often consisted of speeches hostile to on-campus groups that were Left-leaning and sympathetic to Palestinians. Miller teamed up with Richard Spencer, who also attended Duke at that time, to invite Peter Brimelow to debate a pro-immigration activist.

Then came the Duke Lacrosse Affair. In 2006, the Duke men’s lacrosse team threw a party where they hired some strippers. (This was a bad idea to start with, but I digress.) Both strippers ended up being sub-Saharans. This turned out to be a disappointment for the team, since African women are less attractive than white women. Rude remarks were made, and one of the strippers went to the police and claimed she was raped.

The affair attracted national attention because it fed into the narrative that underpins the illicit second constitution that is the 1964 Civil Rights Act: all whites are oppressing all morally upstanding blacks, all the time. A subset of this nonsense is the false belief that black women are desired as sexual objects. The establishment at Duke exploded into a frenzy of moral virtue signaling. The district attorney already had DNA evidence clearing the team of wrongdoing, but hid this fact until he was safely re-elected by a coalition of sub-Saharans and Leftists.

The affair affirmed pro-white talking points. Sub-Saharans, for example, weren’t oppressed, they were coddled. The event also proved that Leftists had a warped belief system, couldn’t read data, often lied, and were unable to administer justice.

Miller then became the press secretary for Michelle Bachmann during her 2012 presidential primary run. Bachmann’s run was unsuccessful, but her ideas spread throughout the Republican Party. Miller also worked for Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions. After Obama’s re-election, Miller and others, like his friend Steve Bannon, argued that the Republican Party should become more racially conscious rather than less.

This turn of political strategy is exactly what Peter Brimelow predicted in his 1995 classic Alien Nation

As [the] white voting bloc is reduced in relative size, ever more intense incentive will be offered enterprising politicians of all ethnic groups, including, perhaps, the almost-majority whites, to whip their own supporters into line in order to marshal their vote. Supreme power in American politics will have come within grabbing range — no longer for any one bloc but for an unstable, jockeying combination of them.

Today, Christopher Caldwell argues in The Age of Entitlement that the “Republicans [are] the party . . . of yesteryear’s entire political spectrum, of New Deal supporters and New Deal foes, of the people who would have voted for Richard Nixon in 1960 and the people who would have voted for John F. Kennedy” (275).

When Donald Trump came down the escalator and announced his run for president, Miller jumped on the opportunity to get on the team. He had to work hard to be accepted — there was considerable name dropping and self-promotion. Once he was on the team and Trump was elected, Miller took his considerable knowledge of immigration law and created a series of regulation changes that restricted both illegal and legal immigration. 

There are plenty of insights to be gained from this book. First, a considerable number of Hispanics are not really into being thrown into a “blacks and brown” coalition. There is a large group of them — often derisively called malinchista in Mexico — who prefer European customs and identify with Spain and Western civilization. Many Hispanics are ethnically white and on our side — not all, of course. Second, Miller was able to advance through hard work and self-promotion. He carefully studied the internal dynamics of the Trump administration and stayed on the team even as others fell out and were fired.

We would do well to imitate David Horowitz’s cultivation of young talent. There is probably some Jewish nepotism in the relationship between Horowitz and Miller, but this nepotism was effective and bears close study.

    How anyone can claim that Trump’s agenda was “white nationalist” is beyond me? A white nationalist wouldn’t promise $500 Billion for a black ‘Cadillac Plan’ or pardon Israeli spies.

      For me the Trump administration’s credibility went out the window the second he pardoned Sholom Rubashkin, a despicable Jew at the head of the country’s largest kosher meat-processing company, who was basically running a slave labor operation for illegal aliens and was justly rotting in jail for money laundering. The pardon seemed to come for no reason other than Rubashkin being extremely Jewish, and I don’t doubt for a second that it was Jews in Trump’s administration, like Miller, Kushner and Dershowitz who lobbied for this sort of thing. Under Trump, Jewish forces coalesced in a united effort to get this parasite out of jail, and unlike Obama, Trump actually caved to that pressure and did it.
      This happened as far back as 2017, right at the onset of Trump’s term, so already my expectations were dampened. And, lo and behold, the rest of his term in office were marked by more and more caving to Zionists.
      Trump’s hard to categorize and I won’t paint him with such a broad brush to say he was totally useless and regrettable. But he evidently had his downsides, and those downsides were often marked by their Jewishness.

    A jew is still a jew. He may say and do things that will give our people the idea that he is really on our side, but don’t ever be fooled. A jew’s only loyalty is to himself and his people-this has been conclusively demonstrated throughout history.

        The Jew has nothing Whites want or need. The Whites who oppose White Nationalism will come around the instant it appears that their option is not to live in lily-white enclaves and virtue-signal about ‘white privilege’ but that they will actually have to live as a White minority among non-Whites.

      You are correct. The Jews have an uncanny ability to always be found on both sides of any issue affecting their host populations. That way, (a) they can craft policies on both sides in interest of the Jews and (b) no matter which side wins or loses, the Jews always are on the winning side.

        I remember an audience member raising precisely this objection to Michael Levin the last time he spoke at American Renaissance. His talk was a very thorough refutation of the case for black reparations, one that should be reprinted widely.

        Even if what you say is true, if does not affect the logical case that he made. An argument is valid or invalid, a statement true or false, independent of any facts about the speaker.

        I just think we have to distinguish the work from the man. Although I agree with your advice to be wary of Jews, as they may be colonizing both sides.

        Yes he is and he worked very hard to gatekeep who got into the Trump administration just like Jared Kushner did, which resulted in quite a few people who were hard on immigration getting shut out because they wouldn’t be loyal to him personally. Like a typical jew he prioritized his personal power over the greater good and was obsessed with lording over anyone beneath him. I don’t think its an exaggeration to say that Stephen and Jared had more influence over who was allowed in the Trump administration than anyone else.

          Your observation is the most logical yet. Miller and Kushner, as gatekeepers.

    Miller is a Jew. No one ever gets to fire a Jew, except another Jew.

    As for the ‘Hispanic’ thing. If I had traveled across Africa and came into Spain, I would embrace the first Spaniard I saw as a White brother. The Southern Europeans are different from the Northern Europeans in many ways, but not in ways that matter any more.

      South/Central Americans are not Spaniards (the vast majority, that is) and are alien to the European and North American mind and way of thinking, they are incompatible. One example of this is the rampant violence typical of the entire region south of the Rio Grande. Murders, rapes, assaults are off the charts and particularly despicable crimes such as sex with very young girls is typical. All of this was exhaustively documented by Ann Coulter in her books supporting Trump in 2016.

      Hispanics engage in crime at rites many times higher than Whites in the U.S. especially involving gang activity, they are a close second to blacks in that regard. Hispanics have the highest rate of out of wedlock births as just one example of their social pathologies. Their academic performance is abysmal also and just a small fraction of them in a public school will ruin it, just like blacks. They scream “discrimination” and demand (and get) special treatment at the expense of Whites, just like blacks.

      Only a Republican cuckservative could still think of them of as “natural conservatives” and allies, they are neither. They present the single greatest threat (well, maybe second greatest threat after The Usual Suspects) to the U.S. Their numbers and proximity make them especially dangerous to the continuation of civilization here. The border states are suffering now from an influx of these creatures which will only get worse and possibly cause Whites in those states to be forced to migrate to Whiter climes as life under Hispanic rule grows intolerable.

      Americans group all ‘Hispanics’ together, since the word “Mexican” is practically a swear word in Southern California. So, people of Castilian (White) ancestry get lumped in with Mexicans who are 50% – 90% Indian tribes, as well as all the various tribes from Central America — which are now the main pack which forms the caravans assaulting our borders. Not only can most of them NOT speak English, they cannot even speak Spanish. Another horror for our schools — and all White Americans as well, who have to pay their bills until they can be ‘assimilated’.

    I really want to share this sentiment…but are Morris and I merely goylible?

    According to Ann Coulter Miller was the force preventing real action against the great replacement as he effectively blocked the appointment of Kris Kobach. (see her outtakes from PBS Frontline. Maybe there was a good reason Miller blocked Kobach and this is just infighting).

    Darren J Beattie is another Jewish millennial Duke alum I really like and likely has some connection to Miller (Beattie was the speechwriter ousted after it was discovered he presented a paper at the Nazi White Supremacist Mencken Club).

    The real test is whether these upstarts are much more strongly identified with their Jewishness than their Euro-ness. Are they acting out the usual hedge fund management, even though they really do hold their views honestly?

    Would they be willing to consider that the demographic disaster is disproportionately a J-creation, or would they attack you as antisemite for ‘noticing’? There’s the Rube…

    And yet…in 4 years Trump never put his name to a simple executive order recognizing the illegality of birthright citizenship, surely the easiest and possibly the most consequential step he could have taken. I wonder which eminence gris prevented that from happening.

      Birthright citizenship is indeed the biggest problem facing this country, as immigrants of all stripes can claim it, and then the children can claim their parents as citizens — at age 18, I think — as well as members of the vastly extended family, which they can then bring into the country, etc., etc.! On it goes, and out we go!

    Thanks for writing this. As for the folks you’ve written about here, it does makes sense to give credit for positive accomplishments. If others of their folk follow their good example, it would do wonders to deescalate tensions. I hadn’t heard of Miller before, but I’ve been following Horowitz for a while. He isn’t exactly on our wavelength (and I wouldn’t expect him to be), but he does lots of good work.

    Wow. That is quite an impressive bit of political prophecy, there.

    For what it’s worth, David Horowitz was one of my earliest introductions to just-outside-the-Overton-window Rightist politics. At least in my case, he was a gateway and not a gatekeeper.
