Stephen Miller, Donald Trump’s former senior group leader for immigration and white supremacy, is back and forms a new legal organization – it’s like the ACLU but to lose your civil liberties!
It even comes complete with a slew of other bastards and a creepy nationalist name: America First Legal.
So think of a Klan rally just with suits instead of sheets and legal instructions instead of burning crosses.
Why, one might ask, do we still need a right-wing extremist organization? After all, we already have several pro-authoritarian and well-known hate groups advocating the cause. Take, for example, the Alliance Defending Freedom and Liberty Counsel, who specialize in attacking LGBTQ people and women. Nobody can forget the Federal Society that gave us all the fucking Trump judges. And of course we could never forget our good friends at Judicial Watch who were told about the terrorization of Dr. Fauci got into shit about electoral fraud.
But you see, while all of these organizations exist to do evil, they also have actual, defined problems that support them. And Stephen Miller, staying true to form, doesn’t want to have to worry about focusing on one thing. He just wants to do anything to make life better for rich, cis, white men and worse for everyone else.
Miller is still bitter that organizations like the ACLU and NAACP struggled during the Trump regime to get children out of baby prison and back to their families. He plans to take revenge on the federal judicial system and all of us. AFL plans to specialize in administrative law and executive overreach, which sounds boring as hell but can actually be an effective way to challenge federal laws and regulations. Trump’s attempts to overturn DACA and ratfuck the census, for example, have been blocked, not because of their substance, but because the geniuses in the Trump regime were just so bad at administrative law.
Miller, whose specialty is racism, isn’t actually a lawyer, so he’s teamed up with some really brilliant conservative lawyers. (Do we already have a sarcasm script? We really need a sarcasm script.) Apparently he’s already working with the likes of Trump impeachment attorney Ken Starr and chief of staff Mark Meadows.
The group also receives help from Jim DeMint’s Conservative Partnership Institute, which unfortunately reminded me that Jim DeMint is actually still alive. Gene Hamilton, another prolific hater of immigrants from the Trump regime, is likely to lead the legal program. Hamilton helped implement the Muslim ban and literally wrote the order to lift the DACA. So you just know that these people are on the side of the angels.
Miller is also trying to get money from Trumpy Trumper Cubs owner Todd Ricketts. Former DHS acting Chad, who led the military attack on Portland last summer, is also a fan of the new organization.
Apparently, even some of the people involved in creating this new parasite to steal a word from Susan Collins are concerned about Miller’s involvement in AFL. Some of those who are helping are concerned that the conservative donors, who prefer people not to say the quiet part out loud, won’t be particularly excited to work with the guy known as Trump’s chief immigration Nazi . Miller reportedly plans a behind-the-scenes role “drawing on his connections within the Conservative movement and existing relationships with GOP attorneys-general to make AFL a major player during the Biden era and beyond”.
It’s all gross. Worse than gross. It’s all a white nationalist, bare, steaming pit of feces.
There is definitely a non-zero chance this tweet from Ian Millhiser will become prophetic:
This ends with a 5-4 statement from Alito that Stephen Miller must sue Biden to own the libraries. https://t.co/hQeZDA7s7R
