Here's The Daily Beast Article Where Bannon Describes His Mission To Destroy Everything HE Hates
In addition to Steve Bannon being called an anti-Semite, White Supremacist, a wife-abuser (according to police reports), and racist, we can add Leninist, since The Daily Beast reported that Bannon's ardent dream is to "destroy the state."
Bannon's love affair with Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov's tactics is quoted in this Daily Beast article:
Steve Bannon, Trump's Top Guy, Told Me He Was 'A Leninist' Who Wants To ‘Destroy the State’
The Breitbart executive director turned GOP leader boasted at a party about his goal of destroying the conservative establishment.
"...we had a long talk about his approach to politics. He never called himself a “populist” or an “American nationalist,” as so many think of him today. “I’m a Leninist,” Bannon proudly proclaimed.
Shocked, I asked him what he meant.
“Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
Bannon was employing Lenin’s strategy for Tea Party populist goals. He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.
I emailed Bannon last week recalling our conversation, telling him that I planned to write about it and asking him if he wanted to comment on or correct my account of it.
He responded: “I don’t remember meeting you and don’t remember the conversation. And as u can tell from the past few days I am not doing media.”
