Dear White Women

Dec 4, 2019

You may not be familiar with the subject of today’s show, but he is a senior advisor for policy for President Donald Trump.

Sara and Misasha are going to be digging deep into Stephen Miller, who has facilitated and created a lot of the Trump administration policies, both domestic and foreign. They’re also going to be discussing his beliefs, which are largely rooted in racist and anti-immigrant ideology.

Listen in to learn more about the people who are in power in our current government.

Show Highlights:

  • Stephen Miller is descended from immigrants who came to this country to escape religious persecution in their own European countries.
  • Politico Magazine published an article written by Miller’s uncle, who calls Stephen an “immigration hypocrite”. Sara shares some highlights from the commentary and invites listeners to sign up for their weekly emails to receive the article link.
  • Miller is not just President Trump’s political advisor, he is also a personal friend of his.
  • Misasha gives an overview of Miller’s previously private 900 emails sent to the editors of the conservative website Breitbart News in 2015 and 2016 regarding anti-immigrant ideology.
  • More than 80% of the emails that Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) Hatewatch reviewed related to race or immigration.
  • In preparing for their article, Hatewatch reached out to the White House and to Stephen Miller for comment about these emails and received no response.
  • When discussing crime, Miller focuses on offenses committed by non-whites.
  • When discussing immigration, he touches on the perspective of severely limiting or ending non-white immigration to the United States.
  • Hatewatch was not able to find any examples of Miller writing sympathetically (or even in neutral tones) about any person who is non-white or foreign-born.
  • Miller has cut off regular contact with most of his allies outside of the Trump Administration to limit leaks, and now favors phone calls over emails.
  • Sara and Misasha discuss Katie McHugh’s part in the leak of the emails. McHugh was an editor for Breitbart who leaked the emails to Hatewatch and later got fired for anti-muslim tweets.
  • Misasha summarizes the content of some of the key emails to help provide an understanding of how influential Miller’s beliefs were in shaping the Trump White House domestic and foreign policies, and Sara provides feedback with statistics.
  • The White House recently announced the US will only accept 18,000 refugees per year going forward. This is a 50% cut from previous years. 
  • The Camp of the Saints, by Jean Raspail, is a racist French novel that is popular amount white nationalists and neo-nazis because of the degree to which it fictionalizes the “white genocide” or “great replacement” myth into a violent and sexualized story about refugees. This book was discussed between Miller, McHugh, and Julia Hahn, another Breitbart editor.
  • Hahn is now an aide to President Trump.
  • Misasha reflects on how the data from the US Census should and should not be used.
  • Miller attempted to incite action against for removing the confederate flag as a sales item.
  • Sara provides perspective on what shapes this country.
  • Keep your eye on the pool of candidates coming up for the next election. 
  • Sara explains the three different types of leadership, how each candidate will have a style of leadership to which they default, and the authoritarian leadership we currently have.
  • Miller’s enemies seem to be everyone who isn’t white, Christian or Protestant, and conservative.
  • By 2045 our Census statistics project that the nation will become “minority white”.
  • There is a petition to remove Steven Miller from the White House.
