Check out some of the last sentences of this essay from Stephen Miller's senior year of high school:

    May He give us the strength to someday bring about a world liberated from senseless hate and hostility. And until that day, may he give us the strength to protect the weak, the innocent, and the oppressed.

Uh but yeah, there are some underpinnings of a fucked up mentality in that piece, like forcing people to do patriotic exercises to eliminate racism. Yikes.

Yeah. Not so much Annakin as a young Palpatine who used 4chan back in the day.

    A seasoned conservative troll, Miller told me during our interview that he has often found value in generating what he calls “constructive controversy—with the purpose of enlightenment.” This belief traces back to the snowflake-melting and lib-triggering of his youth. As a conservative teen growing up in Santa Monica, he wrote op-eds comparing his liberal classmates to terrorists and musing that Osama bin Laden would fit in at his high school. In college, he coordinated an “Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week.” These efforts were not calibrated for persuasion; they were designed to agitate. And now that he’s in the White House, he is deploying similar tactics.

I hope he dies in a fire
