As for Bannon, yesterday the CEO of Breitbart was interviewed on Morning Edition (NPR), and he whined about how Bannon didn't mean to hurt anyone when he referred to lesbians as a 'bunch of dykes' or something rude like that.
Bannon's appointment has been wildly cheered by the White Nationalists, and Breitbart is their fave. Even if he himself isn't - these white supremacists ARE ABSOLUTELY and they "love" him, because of his racism.

“We favor the repeal of the fraudulent, virtually bankrupt, and increasingly oppressive Social Security system. Pending that repeal, participation in Social Security should be made voluntary.”

Both were and are wrong.
I really can't give that much weight. If a term is offensive, it is offensive no matter who uses it. Here where I grew up, that 'N'-word was part of the common language. White folk used it, black folk used it, all it meant was 'black man.' Somewhere, somehow, someone decided it was offensive. OK, when I realized some thought that, I made a serious attempt to not use it anymore. Then it became OK for a black man, but not for a white man? What? That's textbook racism. OK for one race, but not for another... like once the front seat on the bus was OK for one race but not for another. Both were and are wrong.
I may have a term of endearment that I use with my spouse or even my child, that if used by another, may be not only offensive but fighting words.

Well, at least we finally have a definitive answer to your original question.
weyou go from here?
See you on the other side when (if) you get there.
I will watch his every move and point out every single mistake and misdeed in a loud and proud voice. I will let you know in a loud voice every time this man backs away from a promise he made to them. Them. The people who voted for him.
I will do this so that they never forget. And they will hear me. They will see it in my eyes when I look at them. They will hear it in my voice when I talk to them. They will know that I know who they are. They will know that I know what they are. Do not call for my tolerance. I've tolerated all I can.
If you want to hold all the people that voted for Trump responsible for everything that goes wrong in America then your hate and disdain is directed in the wrong direction.
This is their argument. And yes, Congress DID filibister EVERY SINGLE THING. You think Trump is immune to that? The Trump supporters on here have been blaming the "LIBTARDS" and "SHRILLERY" for the last EIGHT YEARS. Bunch of ignorant sycophantic capitalist wankers.
It's OK. I will pray for you. Nothing terrible either... only that you will find inner peace.

So far, no Senate Republican has advocated for changing Senate rules for passing legislation since Trump pulled an upset in last week’s presidential election. But many House GOP lawmakers at a “Conversations with Conservatives” event moderated by the Heritage Foundation argued it gives Democrats unfair leverage.
