Representative Ilhan Omar called White House senior adviser Stephen Miller a white nationalist on Monday, a comment that sparked more accusations of anti-Semitism. However, she’s not the only one — and many more piped in in agreement.
Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. The fact that he still has influence on policy and political appointments is an outrage. https://t.co/7NyMDgojd7— Ilhan Omar (@IlhanMN) April 8, 2019
Last year I called Stephen Miller a white nationalist, but @RepLeeZeldin & @DonaldJTrumpJr never accused me of anti-Semitism.
Rather than attacking @IlhanMN, why won’t they stand up to white nationalism & President Trump’s support for ‘very fine people’?https://t.co/KxWoLl3OZF— Rep. Mark Pocan (@repmarkpocan) April 9, 2019
I can’t believe this actually has to be said. Stephen Miller is a white nationalist. If you defend him, you are no friend of Jews nor immigrants (these are also intersecting identities.) Stop it. https://t.co/cJrxJOEN3a— Linda Sarsour (@lsarsour) April 10, 2019
So Stephen Miller is not only a white nationalist, he’s also a nasty, spoiled rotten, self-absorbed, insensitive, punk - but wait, isn’t that true of all white nationalists? https://t.co/mbGKkToeUx— James J. Zogby (@jjz1600) April 10, 2019
Trump’s minions deny Stephen Miller’s white nationalism on the basis of his Jewishness.
In my book, The Management of Savagery, I detail Miller’s partnership with Richard Spencer to promote white nationalism at Duke.

Even Miller’s uncle, David Glosser, has denounced him. “I have watched with dismay and increasing horror as my nephew, who is an educated man and well aware of his heritage, has become the architect of immigration policies that repudiate the very foundation of our family’s life in this country,” he wrote in a Politico op-ed.
Some, like Congressman Lee Zeldin, condemned Omar for her comment.
During my time in Congress before @IlhanOmar got here, I didn’t once witness another Member target Jewish people like this with the name calling & other personal attacks. In 2019 though, for @IlhanOmar, this is just called Monday. https://t.co/sgvsEvsj56— Lee Zeldin (@RepLeeZeldin) April 9, 2019
President Trump did, as well — and confirmed that he’s the one in control of U.S. immigration policies, not Miller.
Trump is asked whether Stephen Miller is running WH immigration policy. He calls Miller a “wonderful person,” “a brilliant man” but adds “there’s only one person running it. You know who that is?” Then points at himself.— David Nakamura (@DavidNakamura) April 10, 2019
