"This is here and now, as we heard earlier in the program, a federal judge has blocked the Trump administration from deporting unaccompanied migrant Children under a public health emergency order. One of the architects of that policy is senior White House adviser Stephen Miller, who has been behind many of the administration's controversial immigration policies. With a new administration coming. Miller will soon lose his prominent role in the White House. But our next guest argues he will still have a lasting impact. Jean Guerrero is the author of Hate Monger, Stephen Miller, Donald Trump and the White Nationalist Agenda. And Jean You argue that it is impossible to truly understand the Trump era without first tracing Miller's ascension. The role is Trump's senior adviser, say more Exactly. You know, I had been reporting out of the busiest border crossing in the United States. And I kept hearing this narrative out of the White House that you know that the family separation policy and and all of their other immigration policies were about law and order that they were just trying to keep Americans safe. But I knew from my experience reporting on the grounds that that was not the case that they were primarily targeting families who are breaking no laws. So I felt that if I really wanted to understand The intentions behind the immigration policies. I was gonna have to look at the person who was shaping the policies that person being Stephen Miller and understanding what motivates him Understanding what motivates Stephen Miller and in your book, you actually draw Ah through line between Miller's upbringing and liberal Blue State, California. Where he grew up in Santa Monica and his conservatism, which began in middle and high school. Who and what were. His influence is exactly you know. Stephen Miller is truly a product of California of the nineties. Today, most people think of California is this very blue state kind of leading the charge against Trumpism in many ways, But back then there was a lot of anti immigrant hostility and real resurgence of white supremacy. That is sort of a microcosm for what we're seeing. Nationally today, you know, the Governor Pete Wilson was blaming all of the state's fiscal and crime problems on immigrant families. There were advertisements running on television that Showed families crossing the border and anomalous narrator's voice saying they keep coming. And so Stephen Miller was internalizing this rhetoric and, you know, acting it out in his very diverse public high school, he would go around telling his Mexican classmates to speak English tea go back to their countries. He would go into school board meetings to argue passionately against measures to improve racial equity. And what I found through my reporting for the book is that During this time period in his life is when a man named David Horowitz came into Stephen Miller's life and became almost like a father figure to him. You know, Horwitz is a former Marxist turned right wing radical who believes that everything that we hold dear in American society is result of white men. It's a completely a historical idea that ignores the central role of people of color in this country's history. But these are ideas that appealed to Stephen Miller. It gave him a Framework to understand a feeling of displacement that he was undergoing at that time period. And you know, he gave him the tools to fight multiculturalism, which he came to perceive as an exit central threat. And what's what's interesting. What you're saying here is hey learned the tools to fight multiculturalism, but in many ways, using some of the same tactics that those in the civil rights movement used to really call attention to Discrimination and segregation regarding people of color. Exactly, because David Horowitz came from the radical left and joins the radical right. He taught men like Stephen Miller the weapons of the civil rights movement to attack civil rights. So, for example, Casting white conservative men as victims of discrimination based on their skin color, Using terms like racist or oppressor, to describe communities of color, you know, completely inverting and deflecting the language of the civil rights movement and of the left Last year, former bright Bart editor Katie McCue shared emails from Stephen Miller showing his belief in endorsement of white supremacy. And you have She met with her in the course of writing this book. What did she help you understand? And piecing all of this together. You know, she tells me that he helped to radicalize her at a young age when when she was feeling vulnerable, and when she was feeling displaced by pumping her full of, you know, information from these websites that falsely depicted people of color is somehow innately more violent than white people. You know, the use of false crime statistics about black people and about immigrants are very common white supremacist recruiting tactic. And this is something that Stephen Miller used with Katie and led to her radicalization where she began to have a spouse, very racist. Beliefs, and it wasn't until she realized that this movement was, you know, ultimately going to lead to acts of of mass violence that she decided to separate and try to atone for for some of her behavior by sharing these emails with Stephen Miller. Miller never agrees to an interview with you, but you do talk with several people he grew up with and some people in his close circle. But others mostly in Trump's camp, have pushed back against your assertions. You've actually said that Steve Bannon has called you and insane hater. What has been the reaction in response to your book, and why is it important now? Well, I mean, so the reaction has been a recognition and I think an increased willingness among you know our nation's storytellers are our nation's journalists to call White nationalism by its name. I think there's been a real reluctance, you know, from day one of the Trump administration to call the agenda what it is, which is a white nationalist agenda. I didn't write this book to tell readers that Stephen Miller has hate in his heart. But what I can tell you is that he is fluent in hate, and he deliberately uses the language of hate and reaches out to communities to try to incite hatred, you know, based on strategy papers that I reviewed the talk about the political utility of hatred. This is not an inaccurate way to describe with the administration is doing. Stephen Miller has used hate mongering to divide Americans and to rally people around. On agenda that is pulled directly from think tanks funded by white supremacists who believe in population control for non white people. You know, we're having this conversation right now is is we're entering a new year and a new administration. But you've noted that one of Stephen Miller's lasting influences will be how he has changed the way the Department of Homeland Security functions domestically and what ways Exactly, you know, one of the most surprising things about reporting the story of Stephen Miller's life was the realization that this is so much bigger than the immigration issue or even issues related Tosun social justice because You know, Stephen Miller is essentially a public relations..

White Nationalism in the White House: Katie McHugh Kept Receipts

"It's no secret that members of the trump administration up to and including trump himself are parroting the views of white nationalist and white extremist groups. These organizations are tied into outright media outlets like Breitbart and others where they spread this propaganda to the masses. We're going to try something a little different today. I'll be joined by a guest. Co Host. Hossan Ahmad is an immigration attorney and anti white nationalist activist from Virginia. Hossan has been deeply involved in obtaining the archived writings of John. Panton one of the men. Behind the current white nationalist movement in America Hossan connected me to Katie McHugh. Katie is a former white nationalist. Who has renounced her views in his working. Hard to undo the damage. She did when she held them. She's a former staffer for Breitbart and other alt-right media where she was in constant correspondence with Stephen Miller at the trump white house. She's exposed those emails and the deep ties of Miller into the white nationalist movement in America voice box he's overlap between trump's message white nationalist ideology he has shown us that the majority of Americans support are sort of message. You know what yeah make. America great again fell the wall. Pick these people out. This is my country. This this all belongs to me. Trump demurred when asked whether he'd condemned supportive comments from former Ku Klux Klan. Leader David Duke. I have to look at the group I mean. I don't know what group you're talking about. You wouldn't want me to condemn a group that I know. The person is dead and nineteen injured after a speeding vehicle drove into a group of protesters. Your leader downtown Charlottesville very fine people on both sides so we just got a new batch of emails from Breitbart reporter Katya Q. The Southern Poverty Law Center has made public excerpts of emails sent by White House. Senior adviser. Stephen Miller was a key figure shaping immigration policy or president trump the email messages for fifty thousand sixteen. Show Miller support white nationalist website and ideologies. My name is Katie mccue. I've exposed eight far-right extremists in the past fifteen months by working with civil rights groups and legendary nonprofits. I'm very excited now. In the stage of my life to help the most vulnerable in society including people of Color immigrants those who practice Islamic faith and those who this car presidential administration opposes the mouse and seeks to punish through use of authoritarian policies. Sorry Not Sorry so katy you spent a bit of time in the alright. What is the difference if you can explain to US between the alright a white supremacy and white nationalism? What are some of the core beliefs that you're aware of as part of this movement? Well I can say I think we should begin with aristotle here. I don't want to sound pretentious but everything is on a trajectory this is also just basic calculus so one of the things. Aristotle spoke about was habit and one thing you witness with the outright because the media treated them as a truly humorous force that's just online and it's backing Donald Trump and it's young people. The fact is everything that they said. Ironically I'm making air quotes eventually became ironic so whenever people thought they were quote unquote trolling about saying the nineteenth amendment should be repealed and you had white supremacist media figure. Richard Spencer eventually meeting. No I don't believe women should have the right to vote all these memes and things you see on twitter and the way that these mobs were organized so much so that they became. It was almost like blunt force trauma when it came to harassment for media figures. They were not joking. And in the case too with someone like Stephen Miller who's one of the most powerful people in the US government especially when it comes to people who are not white. So who is Stephen Miller? And why is it so important that we understand his thinking? Stephen Miller is one of the closest advisers to president trump. He is the architect of trump's immigration policy and also has the president's ear on foreign policy matters. Stephen Miller for his entire career had anti immigrant. Leanings for some people philly with the alright because it's an amorphous group and doesn't have a membership roll with you. Know I mean. They viewed on white people and people who practice the Islamic faith as not only dangerous individuals but an existential threat to the country. And this does tie into eugenics which unfortunately America has a very dark history with eugenics Ray Science and a history which John drew from and help shape the anti immigrant agenda that has sought renewed energy from the emergence of the outright and renewed energy from the trump campaign and which we now see the full force turned against the most desperate vulnerable people in the world for punish purely because of their country of origin their ethnicity in the face that they practice kitty. You seem so articulate and passionate and human and when we paint these pictures are head of the other side we sort of create these villains. I think I WANNA be respectful for your privacy and safety but I was wondering if you could talk a little bit about how you got caught up in the movement so that we can have a better understanding as to how other people get caught up in the movement. Thank you for asking that because I think that everyone's path is different but buying could help explain some of the groundwork for other young people currently trapped in this. Who Don't quite know how to get out. The outright on the far-right are very much like a gang. You know there's a no snitching policy and I think that many many young people especially let's say trump does not win reelection in twenty twenty this year. A lot of young people are going to wonder. How do I get out of this? And how do I reconnect with other people again and have a healthy loving life full of good friendships? Good connections across backgrounds. So I will just say that I'm from Pennsylvania regular conservative town and I was raised like I think the joke is. You're born a lapsed Catholic. So that was my upbringing. Regular childhood must very nerdy was constantly reading and I was politically inclined. People always talk about two thousand four election. People were very excited about George W Bush. Because it's a Red County and two thousand eight of course with the banking crisis. Things got much more serious and of course the Iraq war still going on so I was chatting with one of my best friends. Her Dad and I was regular Republican fully supporting the Iraq war in in the war in Afghanistan and he said well. Why don't you read this person named Joe So brand? Joseph O'Brien was a former senior editor for national review. He was fired by William F Buckley because he could not control his anti-semitism. I ate him alive. Almost like a neurological virus and I'm eighteen. I had never met someone of poop practice. Jewish faith Jewish background nothing. I didn't understand anti-semitism and I was reading the Essay. That was recommended to me. Call the reluctant anarchists sing. How all government is evil in the constitution has already been so violated. We just need to go back to something. Like pre articles of confederation. Okay this is very important to understand. Is that there is a serious libertarian. Too Far right pipeline very serious and the far right of course is just steeped in. Eugenics steepen utterly discredited on Justifiable Race

"Found myself asking a lot as they put this episode together and in the end I didn't really have one answer. There's the Katie mccue who has given over nine hundred emails to the southern poverty law center trying to reveal the philosophical underpinnings of White House immigration policy. But then there's the Katie McHugh inside those emails. The Katie McHugh eagerly trading white nationalist ideas with Stephen Miller at the time. Katie was a writer for Breitbart News. Miller was a policy advisor for Senator Jeff sessions and a source. Katie's editors strongly endorsed. I you know I wanted to please in. He was basically the editorial director for the Breitbart News political section. So you have someone who a young woman who wants to make her boss happy in his getting excited about bouncing ideas back and forth. When you see yourself in those emails Dell's who is that Katie? McHugh she's dead. Say That and it was a person who is being radicalized by the company. She worked for people that she spoke to every day in or close personal ties. You spend how many years is as a reporter for Breitbart three years. Yeah Yeah because I start working there From April fourteenth two thousand fourteen to Dune four twenty seventeen when I was fired frank tweets to be clear Katie. Didn't arrive in. Washington is a political moderate in a profile published by buzzfeed earlier this year. She described herself as a raging conservative. Even when she was in college but her opinions and to racism became more radical and pronounced she worked in. DC At breitbart. She became a favourite of the websites. Chairman Steve Bannon pretty his radio show and the tweets that got her fired heard. They weren't some kind of aberation. For Katie Islamophobic tweets. Were kind of normal. I just want to read you. Some of the tweets that you sent out. I guess in two thousand fifteen. Yeah one is funny. How Europeans assimilated unlike third worlders demanding welfare while raping leaping and killing Americans? Another one of your tweets here was another crusade would do a lot of good. Let's turn Mecca into a strip mall. That's the kind kind of rhetoric that Stephen Miller reduce not too extreme degree. There's extreme rhetoric being pushed at Breitbart covering immigration policy and I was being radicalized in part. Just one part by Stephen Miller who is constantly feeding me this This information that's interesting. You think of Stephen Miller is radicalizing. Localizing you yes I do I can hear how just hearing this now years later makes you tense up a a little bit. I just wonder what you think. When you hear someone reading these tweets out loud it breaks my heart because they're awful things the hateful things that I never said them and I hope that people understand? I'm coming from a genuine place of you know. I did a lot of soul searching. And that's certainly not who I am anymore back then. Would you've called yourself a white nationalist. Yes I was actually on the phone on a conference call with Stephen Bannon and he asked me out loud. WHO's Shouting on the phone you know almost like trying to. I don't know like goad me into something saying will your white nationalist. Aren't you white nationalist. Katie and I just said yeah and this was on a Breitbart conference call out. He just moved on to the next subject. Nothing happened at the Breitbart that Katy describes racism was expected encouraged when she saw reports of extremist attack in London and she tweeted there would be no deadly terror attacks in the UK. If Muslims didn't live there when you send these tweets that created created all of this firestorm. Did you even think twice about them know. I was watching Fox News and I saw that there have been another uh-huh terrorist attack. I just I said what I said because this was rhetoric that was just Gary Coleman Art But after the two thousand sixteen election readership at Breitbart had plummeted. And this tweet prompted a really successful advertiser boycott that's when Katie was fired afterwards. It's Katie. Didn't start what she calls deprogramming right away. She had stints writing for other far right publications but eventually her professional networks started to fall through through and she began to cringe at the general toxicity of the alright. When did your ideology start to change? I don't know it certainly certainly begin to change with the backlash should being fired. I thought you know is doing a lost soul searching than even always surrounded just by the alright and I. I was very very upset angry. What I saw I was on email chains i? They were calling Megan Golick comparing her to a gorilla. You know there trashing her for being divorced for being beautiful for being actress. It's just constant nonstop hatred of women. It makes she's sick and I felt like I would be targeted when I first started hearing your story is stood out to me that you were this young woman who'd come to Washington with big dreams dreams but you didn't Wanna be someone's plus one you wanted to be a reporter. You wanted to do the work and you and I might disagree about that work or we may have disagreed about that work right right but of course. The the white nationalist community has very particular ideas about women. Yes and I wondered if for you that was the breaking point it. It was one of them because I enjoy This happens with a lot of women extremist movements. You internalize the misogyny so I was. The meeting was self up telling myself of just a woman you know. I listen to these men around me who are just raging misogynist business so the way I described it another interview with I had to pull like shrapnel out of my brain. It's it's very painful deprogramming process and luckily I've had good friends to help me de radicalizing out away from these circles. But it's it's very hard and I and I just had to ask myself. Why am I tolerate this woman being targeted because I am a woman and why help spreading this kind of hatred to other women? Then why am I sharing articles from Breitbart saying that birth control mix woman attractive in crazy. It's nonsense but you also had personal connections to the outright. You were dating leader of the alright. Yes it's something. I can't talk about that yet. Because there's a big story coming out on him and I don't want to scoop anyone but I've been. I've been working on exposing these people for months because because I I've saved everything that I had all the receipts. Only emails ever had tons of pictures Devices you know some just been excavating that I have to think of which reporters which story so I don't break it for them. Does that make sense. Yeah I mean it sounds like it's funny because I saw the first article back in May about you and then I saw the southern poverty law center with this and I was like. Wow it feels like this woman walked out of of her job with like a hard drive under one arm and probably a cloud full of emails. Yes and I guess were about to see where all of those landed. Yeah yeah it takes in a because I take this stuff very seriously does take a long time. So how mini journalistic institutions. Are you working with now a lot. Basically almost every major publication now with new southwards as well This exchange was so revealing to me all throughout our conversation. I would try to ask about something. From Katie's he's past. She would be vaguer than I wanted or for a moment. She would be a little wiser than I expected. And then quickly she'd launch yourself out of the past into a story about present or her future. It's hard to know what to make of it. What seems clear is that Katie is a woman on a mission to rehabilitate her own reputation? Maybe sure but she's also trying to beat back white nationalism after years of being one of its true believers anatole choice. is these old work emails from her data Breitbart. So let's talk about these emails between you and Stephen Miller in particular. Now of course he. He works the White House but when you started corresponding with him he was working with Jeff Sessions. How did you meet him? I was introduced Stephen Miller by. Hi Matt Boyle who are Washington political editor with the understanding. I would take a total direction from Stephen Miller. That's how we met so taking editorial direction from a political aide. Yes from you know a sessions's Senate office it would be like Kamala L. A. Harris's press office dictating news coverage at political news coverage that CNN. You say you have like nine hundred emails between yourself and Stephen Miller which which is remarkable. Because he's known as someone who doesn't like to leave a trace like currently in his current job. He doesn't do a lot of emailing because because he doesn't want to communicate in that way and give other people that kind of potential ammunition so.

"The envelope and we are bold here our vision we also have to be rooted in reality and the fact that voters democratic voters and certainly first wearable independence for the model of the phones driven by is saying views that are reflected on certain the old waiting for for the actual list where hello with the activist wing of our party maybe that was the most astonishing pot yeah I think so I think that for many of of president Obama's credits one theme that he consistently seems to harm upon being a moderate himself is that we need to specially cater to or you know prioritize the persuasion of people who consistently reject and in fact work to subjugate constituencies within the Democratic Party I find that very curious because of publican party does not do this the Republican Party does not have people on the air a former presidents or former and dignitaries saying that we need to cater a little bit more to the left so we can maybe persuade of those suburban liberal voters the fact that this demo this this this dynamic continues to persist on the side of Democrats is frankly I think big reason why they loose and they lose not just there the people who they're trying to persuade who you know to me think that either their joke or you know very few of them will be C. persuaded this mitigating the the cost of that effort I I just you know I just think I think it's the we should be following the models of people like Stacey Abrams you know people who are turning out Democrats in focusing on those on on that outcome rather than trying to focus won't constituencies that generally hate us you know it when I close I mean black people and other folks of color so with with the president you know puts this Ford I think it's unfortunate perpetuation of this culture of fear within the party rather than a culture of courage Jim in the south Bronx here on W. NYC with two male Smith from Rolling Stone hija good morning thank you for taking my call hi I'm calling because I would really set off by one of what you said about so called oligarchs at being gracious itself disqualifying both for the let's not forget that frankly will do well and looks great the purpose of the twentieth century was full of very rich family the the world about the first president to take on the big corporations in the trust fund the ones will probably will the average family and this idea that being rich he is in a self a disqualification cooking I reject and by the way Sir Stacey Abrams law okay so let's let's see looks like this one vehicle cold progress of tropes they simply not valid thank you the mail who I think that the response to this call or a number one I'll start with the Stacey Abrams point Stacey Abrams came with an infinitesimally small amount of points within eight extraordinarily conservative state at no democratic come anywhere near her performance within the last several generations so I think that if you want to talk about building incrementally as moderates do perhaps they should follow that example number two is with regards to all of our key I did not say that being rich disqualified anyone from the presidency if in fact that was the case no one would run for president view of people who run for president who are not independently wealthy to some degree however when you have the person who is worth more than fifty billion dollars coming in very late into the race and essentially offering himself as an alternative I think it is right to question him not just on one of his motives but also frankly on his stances and that is we as you may have seen last week in Rolling Stone that is where I took issue with Mr Bloomberg not with his wealth but with this pay stance on a stop and frisk and the fact that he at the at the time had not you know apologize for and we will do a separate Bloomberg segment listeners coming up in about ten minutes now that he did apologize for stop and frisk will play that sixty second clip from the Christian cultural center in east New York from yesterday and take it from there so Bloomberg explicit segment coming up in ten minutes and impeachment explicit segment coming up at eleven Gabriel and Brooklyn you're on WNYC which Mel Smith hi Gabriel the morning thanks for taking my call so you know as a voter I'm in my thirties I find Obama's comments actually really quite expensive that you can take in this posture up until now of being out of choosing the winner or throw his support behind any candidate but it's unequivocally clear from my perspective that you know this is an example of when Democrats Democrats Republicans even together are able to close ranks we we basically have a tiny progressives minority and everybody else is closing ranks in support of oligarchy cruel this is classic political a league days their only concern is to stay in power and the only way to do that is to please all their billionaire donors but you know gave will that solve many Democrats including Democrats in the race and a lot of democratic voters around the country we'll say wait what do you mean they're only issue here is keeping all the guards in power Joe Biden would reject that Tim Ryan I know he's out of the race would reject that Bloomberg would certainly say he he's not running on that basis a lot of you know voters all over the country who vote democratic say well wait if I prefer somebody who's more moderate because I want a public option rather than the Medicare for all or whatever the reason is they're innocent don't don't accuse me of of supporting all of dark staying in power that's just the furthest thing from my mind I think their reasoning what if they would consider it and admit to themselves it's more along the last call their this fear of losing unite the reference Stacey Abrams and that there if so they're they're moderate instincts come from a place of misinformation for our misunderstanding of the actual fight that we're in right now which is best calculated by Warren and Sanders in that it's fundamentally it's a question of workers verses willingly and anybody who's not on the side of workers on the side really and you know again when you look at these people's records look at Bloomberg's records stop not to get on that before you get to that segment stop and frisk was a racist policy with the express intention of just maintaining the control that that the ruling forces had in this country historically and you know it another example we would say he was finally in in defense of what he I thank genuinely believes whether it was right or wrong I think he would say he was trying to get guns off the street in low income areas with a lot of people of color to reduce crime against them yeah that's a smokescreen and you know as Chuck Schumer for example coming out to say what a great guy Steve king was this this relentless Islamophobic psychopath oh okay well I'm gonna leave it there for time to thank you very much to meals correcting yeah yeah it's actually P. king of the public and congressman from Long Islanders retirement that's not Steve king the real white supremacists from mile yeah I think that we will we can argue about P. king's yeah well you said it is Islamophobia another time but yes I think you know to the caller's point I think that you know Obama maybe actually putting a finger on the scale here you know he's coming out with this statement after staying staying out of this out of this hub of this primary race off for so long and now all of a sudden he's warning people about going too far left in being woke I think that frankly you know who he is you know benefiting from that you know it's not lose with warning Bernie Sanders let me get to some of the let me ask you one more thing about this and then I want to touch briefly on some of the trump stuff there were so many trump stories over the weekend in your opinion could Pete booted judge win over a lot of African Americans as his candidacy progresses I am I right you're free conversations with with me able to judge and actually seeing him in the field talking to black voters in Los Angeles I think that he has the capacity to connect that being said having gone through his Douglas plan in in depth and having interview people about it I mean there are a lot of things that are in there that speak directly to the kid you know concerns brought in specific of African American communities that being said we haven't seen much beyond that that is in terms of the incremental plans to get those things done it's a big wish list and we appreciate it but we need to hit I think the black voters need to hear a lot more for people to judge trump related this Steven Miller right by email dump from the Southern Poverty Law Center were it not for the impeachment hearings last week I think this might have been the major trump related story of the end of last week have you been reading it yes I have Newton with nine hundred emails of between essentially fifteen months fifteen months I don't think I would guess and nine hundred emails to anyone twenty fifteen twenty sixteen that was a period I mean between twenty fifth between is actually March of twenty sixteen in June I'm not yet I think was it's a one year to next essentially he believed that nine hundred emails and two one break by one right part reporter and essentially what he was doing was promoting white supremacists claptrap from websites that new known to be way on the fringe and now this man is in the White House she being you know the most you know crucial immigration policies that we have I mean we should talk about Steven Miller really I mean I say that really the cadence of someone who's like a concerned teacher who's who's concerned about a child who's been caught you know abusing woodland animals during recess I mean this is a guy who isn't really genuine problems here this person who you know called us they said that releasing undocumented immigrants into sanctuary cities are presumably all to the streets and they will be causing a political problem for Democrats would be a good idea that's like that speaking of people in the terms of vermin not as human beings what's new in the emails because certainly people people will say trump supporters will say you can be conservative on immigration and think of the border was out of control and we have to do things even the child separation to discourage people from thinking they can just show up at the border on mass etcetera etcetera etcetera what's the most explicit racial stuff in this email dump how much time do we have I think one thing that really stood out to me right was this one exchange he had in June of twenty fifteen with Katie McCue of right part in which this is right after of course the shootings and yeah and that the students are that the white supremacist chaos in Charlottesville Virginia and you have a sorry not the trunk full of the Charleston shooting comes right the shootings in Charleston city of nine worshippers at a church been massacred all black by white supremacist was made clear that that's what those are his beliefs and your Steven Miller his main concern is the bolt removal of Confederate merchandise from each commerce from places like Amazon dot com because.

"And National Geographic and is the author of the new report at the southern poverty law center's hate watch blog Stephen Miller's affinity for white nationalism revealed in leaked emails welcome to background briefing Michael Hayden thank you very much has it been here thank you and SO let's talk about the leaked emails how you got them and they came from and yeah and I take it they were written in the lead up to the twenty sixteen election when White House senior adviser Steven Miller it was trying to promote white nationalism and an extremist neo **** ideas and anti immigration rhetoric through the conservative side Breitbart yeah so Katie McCue who used to be an editor at Breitbart Q. was are about twenty three years old and ten years ten months out of college when she took a job with bright part and she was told to listen to this you know this aid for senator Jeff sessions name Steven Miller and your what he had to say the four story ideas were concerned by Breitbart editors and make you work there you know from twenty fourteen to twenty seventeen are and in that you know and was very much in the anti immigration movement rep told us will perk white nationalists and with openly fired from bright park for posting tweets that were kinda anti Muslim in nature and McCue went through a personal hi reckoning I guess of with with her the police and and you know and and where they let her what they had done to the country and she decided that she wanted to make amends and he reached out to me with the Steven Miller emails and because I had written so I had done so much work are reporting on can extremists exposing identity of the of explain extremist she said you know what you want to take a look at the someone I took a look at them you know I had nothing there was nothing and I had no ambition of like I'm gonna take on Stephen Miller or anything like that I looked at the emails the way I would look at almost any other meat content to need that you know was extremists nature and one from there so can you describe a this sort of epiphany that can't make you hand it was it just as an act of conscience or a religious revival or is it that relevant arms you know I think with anybody who leaves the far right far right movements there are confluence of different factors that play there are you know personal hardship as a result of the movement and I think that she certainly went through you know after she lost her job and you know she realized kind where she was there's that moment was also you know she came to terms with the fact the stuff that they were doing when she was young woman had now turned into policy and the administration and that I think really really played on our conscience but she actually got fine from right but for being too far to the right and too much of a white nationalists for one I take it you just told us yeah I mean she she really believes that she is a true believer in considering emails during that but he I I think one thing that is important for people to understand about you and I really think that she did aerobics and by turning these over is that she did not ask us to censor are out of it she said these are my words this is what I said at this time and she did not she did not want her picture in it you know she's turned on television interviews related the personnel and she just you know she was focused almost exclusively she wanted the focus to be on Steven Miller and how she could help tell people or tell the public you know what he believes when he is you know in private and of course on Tuesday representatives Alexandria because you could test and and then MA a cold for Steven Miller to step down just quoting at this statement by alma this type of racism and hatred has no place in our government Mila needs to step down now so let's talk then about the actual content of this email exchange between Steven Miller and this young woman working for bright but yeah which is the which was the west which is the one that really got your attention you know if you think about you know we we have spent some time myself and a and a and a researcher whose anonymous with Southern Poverty Law Center we went through these emails so many times and really if you're long long hours and weekends going through it deciphering what was being talked about that in a particular time and then when we assemble this and and you know what when I reported it a you know I kind of put it together and put it like sort of like without thinking of the kind of the most slash things were up top you know where you're out in the beginning he shares from the website be there which is a white genocide when nationalist focused website he shares camp of the saints which is eight only racist novel which is popular in white national synopses he shares you know with her from you know American renaissance which is also a very popular white supremacist thing but the most important for me is very close to the back which is his praise for Calvin Coolidge which might say like or you know whatever he's a president whatever but what he's really talking about there and how the coalition you see him praised frequently on white narcissus what he's talking about is Calvin Coolidge is is signed into law the nineteen twenty four immigration and in nineteen twenty four Immigration Act was based around eugenics full stop way science and had racial quota laws you know prohibiting certain countries from nobody certain people from coming to the US from certain countries and that is scary because we did away with that nineteen sixty five the hard sell or anything you see you know in these emails Miller first about period from nineteen twenty four nineteen sixty five as our heritage the heritage of Calvin Coolidge and if that's the heritage we're going back to that's what makes America great again means is extraordinarily scary proposition particularly for people of color.
