Stephen Miller's Uncle Calls Him Out on Immigration

Imagine having your mother's brother give you a public smack-down in writing for ignoring your heritage and working for a boss who engages in the same tactics as the Nazis to instill fear of immigrants in Americans.

Meet Dr. David S. Glosser is a retired neuropsychologist: formerly a member of the Neurology faculties of Boston University School of Medicine and Jefferson Medical College. His op-ed in today's Politico is titled, Stephen Miller Is an Immigration Hypocrite. I Know Because I’m His Uncle."

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.


...President Trump wants to make us believe that these desperate migrants are an existential threat to the United States; the most powerful nation in world history and a nation made strong by immigrants. Trump and my nephew both know their immigrant and refugee roots. Yet, they repeat the insults and false accusations of earlier generations against these refugees to make them seem less than human. Trump publicly parades the grieving families of people hurt or killed by migrants, just as the early Nazis dredged up Jewish criminals to frighten and enrage their political base to justify persecution of all Jews.

Uncle David also provides some sage wisdom:

Most damning is the administration's evident intent to make policy that specifically disadvantages people based on their ethnicity, country of origin, and religion. No matter what opinion is held about immigration, any government that specifically enacts law or policy on that basis must be recognized as a threat to all of us. Laws bereft of justice are the gateway to tyranny. Today others may be the target, but tomorrow it might just as easily be you or me. (my emphasis)

At one point he refers to a point in time when "Stephen, was famously recovering from the hardships of his high school cafeteria in Santa Monica." An inside joke? Not really. There's lots of articles out there on Miller's days at Santa Monica High. Here's one of them.

    Godwin's Law is still in force (2.00 / 4) (#4)

    "just as the early Nazis dredged up Jewish criminals to frighten and enrage their political base to justify persecution of all Jews."

    "Godwin's Law" does not hold that (5.00 / 5) (#6)

    no reference to the history of Germany in the 1920s, '30s or '40s is permissible. "Godwin's Law" asserts that every Internet argument, if it goes on long enough, will eventually lead to someone calling the other side a Nazi or comparing their argument to something the Nazis did. In this instance, there is no endless argument going on, there is simply a Jewish father attempting to school his Jewish son (accurately) in one of the lessons of history to which Jews in particular ought to be be especially sensitive.

    Oh. I learned something today. Thanks. (5.00 / 2) (#10)
