An influential rabbi just brilliantly shut down Republicans defending Stephen Miller

Earlier today, Donald Trump once again attacked Representative Ilhan Omar (D-MN). The president has been smearing her on and off for weeks now, trying to paint her as an avowed antisemite even as he himself engages in outrageous antisemitic rhetoric.

Just this past weekend, at a speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition  — during which he offensively referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “your prime minister” to the American Jews in attendance — he attacked Omar for the umpteenth time. The most sinister part of this particular barrage was the fact that Trump delivered it just hours after one of his supporters was arrested for threatening to kill Omar.

Omar, for her part, is clearly not intimidated by Trump or his hateful administration. Yesterday, she went after Trump’s vile Senior Advisor Stephen Miller and correctly identified him as a white nationalist. His hateful xenophobic, racist agenda leaves no doubt about it, and it’s a shame that more members of Congress aren’t willing to step forward and condemn him as such.

Trump responded by sharing a bad faith Fox News segment that attacked Omar for going after Stephen Miller because he’s Jewish, even though Omar never mentioned his heritage. She focused exclusively on his destructive agenda, which has proven time and again to be in perfect sync with white nationalist goals.

Now, Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, one of the United States’ leading Jewish religious figures, has weighed in on the topic. She tweeted out a blunt statement: “Stephen Miller is a white nationalist.”

Ruttenberg followed up the tweet with a long series of tweets breaking down exactly how Miller can be both Jewish and a white nationalist, bringing all her expertise to bear on the nuanced topic. The entire thread is worth reading and by the end of it, one will have little doubt not only that Miller can be a white nationalist, but that he definitely is a white nationalist.
