/just kidding, President Miller would never strike Iraq. (That's Bolton's job. "N," "Q," whatever...) Miller would go countervalue on Mexico City and I suppose making the Panama Canal a bit wider would be a kind of wall against the Mexican countries in South America.
//punchline: This game is now more than 25 years old, and not a damn thing has changed.

Just keep calling him President Miller until Donnie's ego has him fired. It worked for Bannon.

The average GOP voter is not just "fine" with the administration carrying out racist immigration policies. The average GOP voter celebrates the administration carrying out racist immigration policies.

Came here to say this.  I'm not sure why it isn't attempted more often.

And, they want more racist policies, delivered and enacted faster.

Whoops, mean "Jimmy".

Probably more like Boris or Vlad.

I would love to see what kind of petulant bullshiat antics Miller pulls with Cummings, Waters, AOC, Tlaib, Omar and every other POC Congressman that questions him. I imagine it will be a shiatshow of epic proportions.

Fine?? They're absolutely giddy about it.

Until it's hurts them, of course.  Then they're trying to blame anyone else for the plight which they cheered Trump for.

While certainly wrong on any number of levels, the anti-immigrant hysteria being created and whipped up by this administration is kind of not a problem for possibly a majority of white Americans. It doesn't mean they are actively anti-immigrant or foaming at the mouth, it just means it doesn't bother them.  Failure to recognize this will have political consequences in some regions of the country.

Stephen Miller is a coastal elite from Santa Monica, California.

Now that's how you rattle Republicans.

Not Shadow Chief of Staff, he's Acting President.

Nothing about you is interesting.

Of course we don't care what you call racist...because you call everything racist. It means absolutely nothing anymore.

This.

Call Stephen Miller an evil racist and a bigot and 40% of the population would like him for pissing off the libs. Call Stephen Miller a pipsqueak cowardly racist and 90% of that 40% would disown him like yesterday's garbage and demand Trump fire him ASAP.

Donkey Dude: [img.fark.net image 529x500]


Back when the issue was expanding legal immigration:

A September 21, 1965, article by Ernest van den Haag called "More Immigration?" took on the impending reform [signed into law on October 3, 1965, by Lyndon Johnson] that would open up America to the Third World. Mr. van den Haag, who is still listed as a contributing editor to NR, argued that our then-sound immigration laws should be made even stricter, not looser. Rejecting the charge that the laws were "racist," he wrote: "one need not believe that one's own ethnic group, or any ethnic group, is superior to others . . . in order to wish one's country to continue to be made up of the same ethnic strains in the same proportions as before. And, conversely, the wish not to see one's country overrun by groups one regards as alien need not be based on feelings of superiority or 'racism'." He goes on to say, "the wish to preserve one's identity and the identity of one's nation requires no justification . . . any more than the wish to have one's own children, and to continue one's family through them need be justified or rationalized by a belief that they are superior to the children of others."

A September 26, 1975, review of Jean Raspail's The Camp of the Saints makes much the same point. Prof. Jeffrey Hart, who is currently listed as a senior editor, called the book a "sensation" that rocked liberal sensibilities. He wrote: "Most people . . . are able to perceive that the 'other group' looks rather different and lives rather differently from their own. Such 'racist' or 'ethnocentric' feelings are undoubtedly healthy, and involve merely a preference for one's own kind. Indeed - and Raspail hammers away at this point throughout his novel - no group can long survive unless it does 'prefer itself.' . . . The liberal rote anathema on 'racism' is in effect a poisonous assault upon Western self-preference."

I love that the GOP approach immigration is to encourage more white people to immigrate to the US and hold back the brown hordes. You know, all those Europeans, Australians, and New Zealanders just dying to throw away excellent easily accessible quality health care, worker protections, family leave, robust social safety net, good public transportation, and low rates of violence in order to come to America and work at minimum wage plucking chickens for Perdue. Cunning plan Baldrick Miller!

Thanks for proving my point.  The word means nothing and everything.
