Politics of race

November 15, 2019

Stephen Miller is responsible for the policy of separating asylum seekers and their children as a form of retribution and deterrence. Earlier, during the 2016 presidential campaign, he worked with Breitbart editor Katie McHugh, to spotlight material stirring anger at immigrants, on the white replacement theory, and similar themes. Katie McHugh since has repented her work with the alt-right, and has made public those emails with Miller, through the SPLC. Whatever you think of SPLC’s work otherwise, those emails speak for themselves. They likely will reinforce the tension between Miller and some of his family. They should cause such embarrassment and scandal that Miller would be forced out of his position.

A century and a half after the Civil War, white supremacists still threaten violence to black political candidates, now using the internet to amplify such threats while remaining hidden.

Most nations don’t have much ideology as a fundamental part of their foundation. One exception is the Confederacy, which was formed for the purpose of preserving black chattel slavery. Today, 155 years past, the American hero shown right burned Atlanta to the ground.
