This Man Is the Most Dangerous Political Operative in America
Steve Bannon runs the new vast right-wing conspiracy—and he wants to take down both Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush.
He's appointed Steve Bannon as White House chief strategist. Bannon ran Breitbart from March 2012 to August 2016. He then went on to become Trump's campaign's CEO.
Resurface audio shows Bannon takes issue with Silicon Valley's Asian CEOs and H-1B visas saying, "When two-thirds or three-quarters of the CEOs in Silicon Valley are from South Asia or from Asia, I think… A country is more than an economy. We're a civic society." (https://goo.gl/Mmv5RJ) I don't know how else to interpret that other than that people from Asia are deteriorating civic society?
The Anti-Defamation League's Jonathan Greenblat noted of Bannon: "It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the 'alt-right' – a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists – is slated to be a senior staff member in the 'people's house.'"
After Bannon's promotion was announced, the Southern Poverty Law Center tweeted several controversial stories written by Breitbart under Bannon's lead: “Stephen Bannon was the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,” the group wrote in a statement. “Trump should rescind this hire. In his victory speech, Trump said he intended to be president for 'all Americans.' Bannon should go.”
Evan McMullin, a former CIA operations officer and independent presidential candidate, linked the appointment to Donald Trump's words in the CBS' 60 Minutes interview.
"Saying "stop it" to racist attacks means little when you name white supremacist darling Steve Bannon chief strategist in the very same day," he tweeted. (https://goo.gl/z3bQB9)
I suppose there's Giuliani who's on the short list for a position. Despite being… well… himself… he's been a huge defender of undocumented workers which is in stark contrast to Trump's positions (https://goo.gl/yo75AR):
"Some of the hardest-working and most productive people in this city are undocumented aliens," Giuliani said in 1994.
"I think New York City should not deal with undocumented immigrants in a harsh way," Giuliani said in 2001.
