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.”

In case you are keeping track, I think this is the 3rd round of neo-Nazi bomb threats against Jewish places of worship and other institutions. This is what comes of electing a President who was supported by the KKK and white nationalists, and now they are even more empowered by having one of their own, an anti-Semite conspiracy theorist, on the National Security Council, and a close advisor to Trump.

This is not how you make America safer.

just look at the majority of the "redneck" states of the USA that voted for "Nellie the Elephant" Trump. Those states where the gene pool is more mixed voted for the alternative (though she, perhaps, whilst not the best candidate who could have been put up by the Democrats, is infinitely better than that nincompoop great panjandram currently sitting in the Oval Office.

Now, what I see at the moment is a re-run of 1930s Germany where a "populist" nincompoop, with a pathological high opinion of himself, usurped the democratic Weimar republic after a "populist" election to "make Germany great again" and carried out what was, effectively, an internal peaceful coup - at first. Once he had filled the senior posts surrounding him with his coterie of NAZI henchmen he then went about doing what he did which resulted in WW2 and the holocaust of Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, Masons, moslems and any person he thought disagreed with him. I expect the next thing we'll see "Nellie the Elephant" Trump do is to change the general salute from his current one of making a ring with his index finger and thumb when he makes a point to one of raising his right arm to shoulder height and forward, extending his hand forward and clicking his heels when standing. The more informal salute would also be the quick raise of the right hand to a vertical position with palm facing forward - just the way his 1930s compatriot used to do. Now what was his name? Ah, yes, Adolph Hitler.

And, of course, Mrs May(ks it up as she goes along) - our "dear leader" would be the appeasing Mr ("Czechoslovakia is a little country far away about which I know little) Chamberlain in the "special relatrionship". Oh, by the way, the UK is not the USA's poodle, the USA is the poodle and the UK is its lampost. - Think about it, what do male poodles do when they find a lampost?

Karen and UK friend:

This is Trump's America:

President anti-Semite Bannon's America:

"Sgt. Patrick Whitaker of the Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin Police Department said officers were searching the building but that it would take some time to give an all-clear. (Whitefish Bay is a near suburb of Milwaukee)

The threat comes on the same day that police have reportedly responded to bomb threats at Jewish centers in New York, New Mexico, California, Colorado and Utah. "

Here's one of Duke's recent tweets:

Loser? It appears Dave, that everything I've been talking about for decades is coming true and the ideas I've fought for have won. #winning

— David Duke (@DrDavidDuke)

No explicit admission that he's been working for bomb threats at Jewish community centers but I can imagine him getting high five from President Grabbers pocket klansman, Bannon.

It is OK for WJC to say we need to do something about the illegal immigrants burden to our tax payers but if BJT say something about controlling immigration he is vilified.
Is there any logic to this turn? The reference came from that conservative bastion c-span.

Shaw Kenawe said...

No one has ever said it's wrong to SAY we need to do something about illegal immigration. Here's a fact you and many other willfully ignore:

President Barack Obama has often been referred to by immigration groups as the "Deporter in Chief."

Between 2009 and 2015 his administration has removed more than 2.5 million people through immigration orders, which doesn’t include the number of people who "self-deported" or were turned away and/or returned to their home country at the border by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

How does he compare to other presidents?

According to governmental data, the Obama administration has deported more people than any other president's administration in history.

In fact, they have deported more than the sum of all the presidents of the 20th century.

So trump will have his work cut out to equal or do better at deporting undocumented people than President Obama has.

What trump and his gang did last week was to send out an order on banning people from 7 countries without any warning, thereby causing worldwide panic, confusion, and disorder.

IOW, it was a colossally incompetent roll-out of a useless program. Not one American has been killed by any refugee from any of those countries.

HOWEVER, trumpie made sure that people from terrorist producing countries like Saudi Arabia (almost every 9/11 killer was from there), and Egypt are safe to come here. Apparently trumpie is sure no one from those terrorist producing countries will do any harm to anyone and also, he DOES have to protect the money he's invested in his properties in those countries, doesn't he?
