#2006: Gina Miller

Gina Miller is a columnist for RenewAmerica and Barbwire. Her contributions are, contentwise, pretty typical for those sites, but Miller has a knack for formulations and attempts at argumentation that are arguably even more hysterically paranoid, bigoted and conspiratorial even than most of her colleagues.

Zeh gays
As you’d expect, much of her writing concerns gay people, partially because homosexuality, in the mind of someone like Miller, is connected to everything else she doesn’t like. For instance, as Miller sees it, LGBT rights leads to communism: “We have seen in the past several years under the Barack Obama (or whatever his name is [Miller is a birther, of course]) administration a militant homosexual movement on steroids, running at warp speed. Many of us have been warning you that this movement is not what it seems […]. While its proponents claim it is simply about gaining ‘marriage equality’ and ‘civil rights’ for homosexual, ‘transgender’ and other sexual deviants, that is not the caseAt its core, this movement is about tyranny. It’s about subverting the rights of people who hold traditional moral values, which are antithetical to immoral, centralized government control. It’s about silencing the dissent of those who oppose the destruction of marriage and the mainstreaming of deviancy. It’s about deconstructing the foundations and truths of our freedom-based, constitutional Republic. This movement’s goals are in line with the goals of the communists.” 

On other occasions, gay marriage is a Satanic plot to murder Christians: “Christians here in America will be in danger of state-sanctioned murder for their beliefs”, though these two goals may appear to be equivalent in the warped mind of Gina Miller, which is not very good at drawing relevant distinctions. Nevertheless, she is committed to fighting the “demons and the spiritual wickedness of those in places of great power. As Christians, we have read the end-times prophecies, and we know the warnings Jesus gave us about how awful things will become in the last days,” which, insofar as they herald the end times and return of Jesus, is a good thing! “The Godless communists (or fascists, if you prefer [distinctions, again – how do they work?]) are using the homosexual agenda to work toward eradicating Christian opposition to their plans, which are Satan’s plans.”

So, gay rights “has its roots in Hell” and are championed by “godless, human minions of Satan.” Or, put more eloquently: “Tenacious sodomite tools of the devil” are on a “hellish crusade to establish a dominant Sodom West.” 

Shocked by the fact that some companies are declining to sponsor anti-gay activities, Miller has asserted that people and companies who have “caved to the homo-fascist pink fist” must be made aware that “homosexual behavior is depraved behavior” and will always be sinful “no matter how thick and smothering the black blanket of Sodom and Gomorrah ends up being in the United States,” and that gay rights laws are part of Obama’s “brutal tyranny”. What Obama has to do with it is unexplained but probably follows from the Satan-communist-fascist connection: “the only rational
conclusion is that [Obama] is an enemy of the United States,” says Miller. Also, God will come and punish you all, just you wait and see. Meanwhile, you should all boycott companies that don’t discriminate against gay people.

As for the Supreme Court decision on gay marriage, Miller warned in advance that a legalization of gay marriage would send us “on the fast-track to tyranny [in different writings from the same time we are, as illustrated above, already there]. It will become illegal to oppose homosexual expression and counterfeit marriage in any way. If the Court does this, it will effectively abolish the First Amendment of the United States Constitution. Do not imagine for a minute that churches will be exempt. They won’t.” Yes, she’s got assertions. Therefore what she says must be true, no matter how feverishly delusional it might sound. Needless to say, she did not react well to the actual decision when it arrived: “Are we truly watching a perfect storm of tyrannical darkness conquer the United States? Have we finally been defeated by the ever-patient, ever-evil, embedded communists […]?Are America’s younger generations lost to Godless, communist indoctrination and ideology, which includes radical environmental lunacy [yes, she often has these little gems thrown in] and the eager embrace of militant homosexualism and the destruction of marriage and family? Is there no way to purge the systemic immorality and corruption that infects all our major institutions, our federal, state and local governments, our schools, the media and entertainment industries and corporations? Is it even possible for this wayward nation to return to the founding principles and limitations on the central government outlined in the Constitution? Is tyranny inevitable? […] If – for instance – Obama’s ‘Civilian National Security Force’ is sent out to round up those America-loving patriots whom Obama so despises, and those patriots attempt to resist the aggressors with deadly force, what will happen? Does anyone truly believe that in this age of advanced weaponry in the hands of the State, coupled with its mighty, militaristic police power, that we stand a chance against it?”

She explicitly denies that she is bigoted, however, and can accordingly not comprehend why she gets “maligned as being ‘homophobic’” by “the homofascists” for simply speaking about “the immoral, unnatural and very unhealthy reality of homosexual behavior” and warning that the “powerful, evil tyrants” of the “anti-American, anti-freedom, Godless Left” have “dumbed down” young people to support gay rights (just look at this lovely diatribe). In fact, claims Miller, homophobia does not exist. But if it does, then it is pro-equality groups that are the real homophobes, and also to blame for any suffering. Meanwhile, stupid libruls are so dumb that they won’t see how non-self-undermining her argument actually is. 

It is all deception by the godless Left. For instance, contrary to what godless leftists are saying, “Christians are not refusing to serve homosexuals;” rather, “Christians politely refuse them,” which is totally different. Again, one has to wonder if Miller understands how distinctionswork.

Miller on the persecution of Christians
Occasionally, Miller turns her attentions to other evils (although they are of course all related to homosexuality since anything she disagrees with is Satan – she has explicitly supported the idea that Islamic extremists and the gay rights movement are tightly connected). For instance, Miller is concerned with the persecution of Christians, and in her article “Why Are Christians (Really) the World’s Most Persecuted Group?” she identifies the reason why: It’s Satan. But Satan is operating through a lot of channels. Islam, for instance, is Satanic (“It is one of Satan’s premiere deceptions, tyrannically ensnaring countless millions of people […] Those who adhere to Islam naturally have a demonically-inspired hatred for the people of the Lord, but as the Bible says, they hate everyone[; …] their hatred is Satan’s hatred, and it goes well beyond simple dislike or disagreement on principles. It goes to the heart of the spiritual essence of the foundational struggle, to the basic forces of darkness and light.”). There is a reason why Obama, as Miller’s deranged imagination would have it, ordered the media not to report negatively on Muslim jihadists. (“None of what Barack Obama (or whatever his name is) does makes sense, unless you realize that he is a tool of the devil. His motivation is to do the evil will of his spiritual father, who hates everything of God,” says Miller. Obama’s actions are apparently not the only thing Miller is unable to make sense of.) In 2014, Miller asked God to remove Obama from office.

Indeed, all non-Christian religions are Satanic, and so are liberal Christians: “The frenzied, irrational hatred people of the world have for Christians is inspired by, and based in, Satan’s hatred for God and His people. It’s a demonic hatredfound in people who have rejected the Lord.” And – in a moment of particularly striking lack of self-awareness: “Have you ever noticed that there is not the same deep hatred for non-Christians and non-Christian religions” from Christian fundamentalists? Which is in contrast to the ubiquitous “[s]upernatural hatred for Christians and Jews.” And of course: supporters of church-state separation (described as those who wish to “eradicate all vestiges of Christianity in America”) are Satanic, too.

Not happy with Rightwingwatch reporting on her views, Miller also declared that RightWingWatch and People For the American Way are “guardians of deception” and Satan’s “foot soldiers” that follow “their spiritual mentor the devil” and make people “throw up, working to “misrepresent” conservatives to defend “the Godless, degenerate, tyrannical agenda of the Left”. It is unclear why misrepresentationwould be needed.

Among the many ills for which Muslims can be blamed, is airport security: “Cowardly, evil leaders of the United States have allowed the Muslim supremacy invasion of our nation, which has led to all American citizens paying the price of lost liberties because of barbarians who commit mass murder in the name of Islam. For Pete’s sake, because of a single Muslim demoniac, every American now has to remove his shoes at airport screening!

Miller has also hailed Kim Davis as a modern-day Christian martyr persecuted by “[t]he radical homosexual movement,” which is “one of the foremost tools the devil is using to topple our freedom.”

Again, it’s all the work of Satan: “Whether it’s the communistic ‘global warming agenda, the homosexualist agenda or even the lunatic ‘black lives matter racist agenda, all these are heads of the same tyrannical hydra. They all seek to bring tyranny down on the American people.”

Gender issues
Miller has weighed in on gender issues with her usual level of insight and sophistication, declaring that “slutty” women cause men to rape them as part of a “war on white males” in the US by feminists and all liberals who “have this hatred for males, especially white males.” Rape culture will only end when (we turn to Jesus) and women stop dressing like “strumpets”, “prostitutes” and “porn stars”.

There’s a good Gina Miller resource here.

Diagnosis: Completely, utterly and irrepairably unhinged – not even dimly aware of how reality, evidence, accuracy, decency, reasoning and distinctions work, Miller is nevertheless not afraid to offer us thoughts whose level of stupidity is matched only by the deranged hatred they convey.


  1. Gina Miller also goes by WXRGina on FreeRepublic.com ... which has gone full-on white racist since the Trump election. Gina saves most of her open racism for there.
