Donald Trump’s white nationalist “genius bar” Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, Michael “Decius” Anton a

Donald Trump�s white nationalist �genius
bar� Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, Michael �Decius� Anton and beyond. Donald Trump�s administration is built around
a brain trust of white nationalists. To deny that fact is to ignore a crucial element of
this national crisis: America�s �greatest generation� defeated Nazism during World
War II, and 70 or so years later one of the country�s two leading political parties
has injected a more polite version of that poison into its veins and rode to power in
Washington on a wave of bigotry and racism. Among the men who have President Trump�s
ear, we find White House strategist Steve Bannon, senior adviser Stephen Miller, deputy
assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka and newly installed Attorney General Jeff
Sessions. Until recently Bannon ran the right-wing website
Breitbart News, which has a well-known white nationalist tilt and loves to publish stories
about �black crime� and �Muslim hordes� beating down the gates of �Western civilization.�
As Bannon has said, Breitbart functions as a mouthpiece for the �alt-right,� which
largely serves as a rebranding label for various white nationalists and white supremacists. Miller, who made headlines over the weekend
defending Trump�s false claims of �voter fraud,� is a fierce advocate of �ethno-nationalism,�
meaning the racist belief that Europe and America must protect their culture and civilization
(which are white by default) from outsiders who do not share their �Judeo-Christian
values.� Miller echoed those talking points on Sunday talk shows, claiming that �millions�
of �illegal aliens� voted against Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election. As a college student, Miller worked on political
projects, according to news reports, alongside his classmate Richard Spencer, one of America�s
most prominent white supremacists. Sessions has been viewed as a racist in his
home state of Alabama for decades. He has said that the NAACP is an �un-American�
organization, is said to have insulted a black attorney calling him �boy,� has backed
laws that make it more difficult for African-Americans to vote, and once joked that he thought the
Ku Klux Klan was �all right� until he learned that some of its members smoked pot.
Sessions� racial views are so extreme that he was earlier denied a federal judgeship
by his fellow Republicans in 1986. In his role as the attorney general and leading
law enforcement official of the United States, Sessions will now be tasked with defending
the civil rights of racial minorities and other vulnerable populations. History is not
always a story of progress. The office of the attorney general was instrumental in fighting
the Ku Klux Klan and its threat to African-Americans during Reconstruction, under President Ulysses
S. Grant. Under Trump, the attorney general is a man who apparently does not view protecting
civil rights as a priority. When the Trump administration recently refused
to acknowledge how Jews were the primary and specific targets of the Holocaust, it was
White House deputy assistant Gorka who called the controversy over that decision as �asinine.�
Perhaps it is no coincidence then that Gorka � who was born in London to Hungarian �migr�
parents � has repeatedly been photographed wearing a medal associated with the Order
of Vit�z, an overtly anti-Semitic chivalric organization that collaborated with the Nazi
regime during World War II. Writing for Policy Mic, Tom McKay offered
some additional context on the order�s founder, Mikl�s Horthy: Horthy, the Hungarian regent that [the order]
supported, held a profound animus for the Jews of Hungary. �Concerning the Jewish
question, for all my life, I have been an anti-Semite,� Horthy once wrote. His government
allied with Adolf Hitler�s Nazi Germany, enacted anti-Semitic laws, brutally cleansed
Hungarian Jews, enslaved others in work details and collaborated with German authorities to
deport them to death camps. �Many supporters of the Horthy regime were
enamored by the Nazis and Hitler, and the �knights� were especially so,� Balogh
told LobeLog. �After 1948, one wouldn�t have bragged about his father being a �vit�z.�
Lately, however, especially since 2010, it has become fashionable again to boast about
such �illustrious� ancestors.� In keeping with his white nationalist affinities,
Gorka is also hostile to Muslims and served in a senior role at the website Breitbart. Michael Anton, a former George W. Bush speechwriter,
is the newest addition to Trump�s white nationalist brain trust. Now a policy aide
at the National Security Council, Anton is best known under his nom de plume, Publius
Decius Mus, for writing the pro-Trump manifesto �The Flight 93 Election.� Before that article went viral, Anton published
an earlier essay called �Toward a Sensible, Coherent Trumpism.� In it, he defended the
anti-Semitic America First movement of the pre-World War II years, with an obvious eye
toward Trump�s repurposing of the phrase. Anton elaborated further on that theme: [One] source of Trump�s appeal is his willingness
� eagerness � gleefulness! � to mock the ridiculous lies we�ve been incessantly
force-fed for the past 15 years (at least) and tell the truth. �Diversity� is not
�our strength�; it�s a source of weakness, tension and disunion. America is not a �nation
of immigrants�; we are originally a nation of settlers, who later chose to admit immigrants,
and later still not to, and who may justly open or close our doors solely at our own
discretion, without deference to forced pieties. Immigration today is not �good for the economy�;
it undercuts American wages, costs Americans jobs, and reduces Americans� standard of
living. Islam is not a �religion of peace�; it�s a militant faith that exalts conversion
by the sword and inspires thousands to acts of terror � and millions more to support
and sympathize with terror. This is a crystallization of the political
worldview that drives Donald Trump�s fascist and authoritarian movement as well as conservatives
more generally. Of course, Anton�s analysis is factually
challenged. There are 1.6 billion Muslims in the world. An extremely small percentage
of them have committed acts of terrorism. By contrast, at the Ku Klux Klan�s height
of power during the 1920s, about 15 percent of the eligible white male adult population
were members. As reported by the Pew Research Center, that figure is higher than the level
of support given ISIS by respondents in 11 countries with significant Muslim populations. Islam is not a �foreign� religion. African
slaves brought Islam to the Americas almost 400 years ago. Christian �dominionists,�
Christian nationalists and other right-wing evangelicals have a good deal in common with
Muslim extremists: They also believe in an �end times� eschatological battle between
good and evil and believe that public policy should be directed toward serving that goal.
Christian and Muslim extremists also do not believe in a barrier between church and state.
Both groups consider homosexuality as sinful, are overtly hostile to LGBT rights and view
women�s equality as a threat. Social scientists have demonstrated that diversity
is a net gain for productivity, problem-solving and overall economic growth. Moreover, economists
have shown that racial and gender discrimination in the labor market costs the U.S. economy
hundreds of billions of dollars. Immigration has also been a net gain for the
U.S. economy and allowed the country to grow and remain globally dominant while more homogeneous
societies like Japan have stagnated. Labor performed by immigrants (both documented and
otherwise) subsidizes the American standard of living by lowering food and other costs. Anton�s observation about the United States
being a �settler society,� however, is accurate and worth a closer look. As pointed
out by political scientist Samuel Huntington and others, contrary to popular myth, America
is not a nation of immigrants. Rather, the United States is a society where new arrivals
(largely meaning white Northern Europeans) exterminated the existing population and then
forced their culture on the survivors. These settlers then constructed a hierarchy whereby
they were dominant and others � enslaved Africans, Native Americans and successive
waves of immigrants, especially those of color � were oppressed. This arrangement is known
as �racial settler colonialism.� The United States fits this model, as do other nations
like Australia, Brazil and Israel. For Anton, such a history is not problematic but rather
ideal. Anton, Bannon, Gorka, Miller and Sessions
find themselves in the upper stratum of decision-makers, shaping public policy for a racially diverse
and multicultural society. They view such attributes as weaknesses instead of strengths.
This does not bode well for the American people as a whole � especially those of us on the
other side of the color line.
