Strange bedfellows alert

A couple months ago, The New Yorker interviewed a writer named, ridiculously, Publius Decius Mus (tip: only Madison, Hamilton, and Jay could adopt Roman pseudonyms, for god’s sake). He wrote a delightful essay published in The Claremont Review, a publication which has lent its name to tony dismissals of savages and non-American otherworlders. In a style combining the hortatory, pseudo-erudite, and batshit, Decius ordered the Praetorian Guard to defenestrate “establishment” types who, motivated by compassion and avarice, take Emma Lazarus’ poem seriously.

Thirdly, the ceaseless importation of Third World foreigners with no tradition of, taste for, or experience in liberty means that the electorate grows more left, more Democratic, less Republican, less republican, and less traditionally American with every cycle. As does, of course, the U.S. population, which only serves to reinforce the two other causes outlined above. This is the core reason why the Left, the Democrats, and the bipartisan junta (categories distinct but very much overlapping) think they are on the cusp of a permanent victory that will forever obviate the need to pretend to respect democratic and constitutional niceties. Because they are.

There are a “firstly” and a “secondly,” but to list them would be “madly.” The self-styled consul and cupbearer to Tiberius has a name and a National Security Council badge, according to Michael Warren. Michael Anton. His previous credits include contributions to a website called — you’ll think I’m lying — Journal of American Greatness.

Meanwhile Stephen Miller, prime author of last week’s executive order banning temporarily the entry of refugees, has his own scribblings but unfortunately he had no pretentions to Romanism:

In a [2007] post “Naming the Enemy,” Miller complains that there simply are not enough anti-Islam movies. During WWII there were all kinds of anti-German movies, he argues, obviously not hesitating to lump terrorists with an Islamic background with the entire 1.7 billion population of Muslims:

“In this bizarre era it is acceptable to depict virtually any group as the enemy but the actual enemy we are fighting. And if someone does, they are accused of fomenting Islamophobia, an intimidation tactic which has been all too successful. The actual fear that seems to grip America is violating the P.C. orthodoxy. And if this absurd fear means keeping our eyes shut about the Islamist threat, and in turn putting up a weak defense, then we will soon find ourselves face to face with something very real to fear.”

In late 2008, Miller left his post at the Terrorist Action Network and went to work as a wordsmith for U.S. Representative Michele Bachmann, and then for Senator Jeff Sessions—two leaders in the advancement of Islamophobia.

That paragraph isn’t even the last; I couldn’t have chosen a more appropriate ending, though.
