#NotARandomRacist_ Stephen Steinlight

Steinlight is the Senior Policy Analyst at Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). CIS was founded in 1985 by John Tanton to serve as an immigration restrictionist think-tank. The group exists to help the anti-immigrant movement win the “Battle of Ideas,” within the immigration debate. Beginning in 1986 the group was probably the first to openly advance the doctrine of “self-deportation,” or as they call it “attrition through enforcement.”

Steinlight has made many public statements denouncing Muslims, immigrants, and minorities, going as far as saying that he would like to bring back archaic anti-communist legislation in order to ban all Muslim immigration to the US. Steinlight does not shy away from controversy. He is consistently making racist and bigoted statements to the press and at speaking engagements such as the statement about President Obama given before a Tea Party group in Sebring Florida on July 17, the full quote is:

“We all know, if there ever was a president that deserved to be impeached, it’s this guy. All right? And I wouldn’t stop. I would think being hung, drawn, and quartered is probably too good for him….But you know, this man who wants to rule by the use of a pen, a telephone, let us not forget his teleprompter….the fact is that it would backfire very badly and we’ve got to be grownups and accept that we can’t have everything we want, you know, [like] his head on a skewer.”
