"Be very vigilant, America!"
Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon," is an anti-Semite and White Supremacist.
If anyone thought we were exaggerating about proto-fascism coming to the White House, just take a look at Bannon and what he's said over the years:
What has Kristol's religion got to do with anything? Would Bannon have called someone a "renegade Catholic? A renegade Baptist? Hindu?"

"Some responses from human beings to the despicable Steve Bannon's role in Trump's White House:
'President Obama is scheduled to speak to the nation during a news conference Monday afternoon. Ahead of his appearance, a chorus of critics took to Twitter to lament what they said was a frightening normalization of the fringe views that Mr. Bannon promoted as the chairman of Breitbart News.
The site has for years given voice to anti-Semitic, racist and white nationalist ideology.
'The Council on American-Islamic Relations said Mr. Bannon’s selection “sends the disturbing message that anti-Muslim conspiracy theories and white nationalist ideology will be welcome in the White House.”
'That view was echoed by the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. It insisted that “Trump should rescind this hire.” '“In his victory speech, Trump said he intended to be president for ‘all Americans,’” it said. “Bannon should go.”
'Republicans who had long opposed Mr. Trump’s candidacy also took to Twitter on Sunday night and Monday morning to warn that his choice to rely on the advice of Mr. Bannon is an indication of the way that he will govern. '
“The racist, fascist extreme right is represented footsteps from the Oval Office,” said John Weaver, a Republican strategist who ran the presidential campaign of Gov. John R. Kasich of Ohio and previously advised Senator John McCain of Arizona. “Be very vigilant, America.”' -- Michael K.
Here's what Ben Shapiro, who knows Bannon and who left Breitbart, has to say about trump's chief strategist:
What Does Bannon’s Accession Mean?
Bannon has goals. One of those goals is maximization of personal power, which is why he spent the last decade and a half glomming onto powerful right-wing personalities (Bachmann, Morris, Palin), kissing their asses, and then moving on up the chain.
With Breitbart and Trump, he picked two winners in a row – and that means he’s now at the pinnacle of American power. So, what will he do with that power? He’ll target enemies. Bannon is one of the most vicious people in politics, which is why I’ve been joking for months that should Trump win, I’d be expecting my IRS audit any moment. That wasn’t completely a joke.
He likes to destroy people.
