Stephen Miller’s quote for the true believers of Trump
- “Anything that portrays America as under attack by Islamic terrorists, as even the most purely apolitical 9/11 memorial inevitably will, challenges the university dogma.”
- “You’re obsessed with race. You see everything in terms of race, and you see everyone who disagrees with your worldviews as a racist. And guess what? Almost everybody you’ve been talking to thinks something is wrong with you.”
- “Continue to worship at the alter [sic] of multiculturalism and we may come to see that we are participating in the sacrifice of the one culture which binds us all.”
- “No just society can survive which abandons God.”
- “Every American has the right to support a policy of retreat and capitulation, and, as so many leftists do, they also have the right to lie and slander the country and the president to further this agenda.”
- “This isn’t education — it is a form of political advocacy and indoctrination, which is unprofessional and violates the tenets of academic freedom by which universities like Duke claim to be guided.”
- “The last year offered a horrifying tutorial in the moral bankruptcy of the left’s politically correct orthodoxy and the corruption of our culture at its hands.”
- “It’s the most wonderful time of year — but you wouldn’t know it looking around Duke’s campus. You’d probably find more Christmas decorations at your local mosque.”
- “[T]he Hollywood crowd feels sympathy for the terrorists, detests Republicans and sees America as an obstacle to a better world.”
- “Create a smoking lounge where all members of the Duke community can come to indulge in their favorite tobacco product. The room should have plenty of mahogany and leather, plasmas, darts, a grand piano, and a professional full-service bar.”
