Is Bannon really who you want in the White House?

As some of you may be aware, Steve Bannon was recently appointed as chief strategist for the Trump Administration. The media immediately began making note of his association with the alterative right, or "alt-right". Now, I admit that I really hadn't heard the term until this election cycle so I did a little digging. It is true that Bannon is associated with it as he is quoted, "We're the platform for the alt-right,' Bannon told me proudly when I interviewed him at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in July. Though disavowed by every other major conservative news outlet, the alt-right has been Bannon's target audience ever since he took over Breitbart News from its late founder, Andrew Breitbart, four years ago" (link).
I decided to look into just what the alt-right stands for and it didn't take long for me to conclude that the rhetoric we've been hearing from the left may be justified. I'll leave you with what I've found so far and let everyone do their own research, as I cannot spend time going down this rabbit hole any further right now.

A few years ago a guy named Richard B. Spencer started a blog called Alternative Right (link). The front page claims "We are The Founding Site of the Alt-Right". Spencer is currently the president of The National Policy Institute (link). That site's front page proclaims, "NPI is an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world. It was founded in 2005 by William Regnery and Samuel T. Francis, in conjunction with Louis R. Andrews". I'll let each of you take what you will from that description. However, I found a blurb on Louis R. Andrews from 2009, "Louis R. Andrews, chairman of a white advocacy group called the National Policy Institute, said he does not support violence, but he expects to see increased racial animosity that will eventually manifest itself in more physical attacks.
'There's no such thing as post-racial,' Andrews said, when asked about the claim that Obama's election moved American race relations to a different place. 'There's conflict, conflict and continued conflict.'
Andrews said he voted for Obama because 'I want to see the Republican Party destroyed, so it can be reborn as a party representing the interests of white people, and not entrenched corporate elites'" (link).
Some of you may have voted for Trump and some against. I'm not posting this as a critique of the election. It's over and Trump won. But as we move from presidential campaign to presidential administration, I'd like all of you to dig a bit into who Trump is surrounding himself with and decide if that's really the direction you'd like to see this country go.

Yeah he is.

He's a former navy officer and anti-establishment to the core.

I also believe his daughter is a graduate of West Point.

He is a great asset to we the people.

European descent? That includes Spain, so it looks like a friendly policy towards south and central Americans. Nothing to worry about for us

Did it bother you that Obama appointed Rashad Hussain to the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications position? If that did not bother you, then why would this bother you?

I'm OK with the guy from a national security and economic position. Seems to know his stuff pretty well.

The broadly not clearly defined groupmsometimes referred to as the "alt-right" is not the same as the clearly defined organized group called the Alternative Right.

The two have been wrongly conflated by the biased propaganda media.

Laura Ingram would be great.

She would be a hoot.

Only one who could be better is Michelle Malkin.

The IDIOTS who run CNN haven't learned a thing!

They got all their predictions wrong regarding the world of Donald Trump for the past 2 years. Now they're bringing in "expert" after "expert" to describe how dangerous Steve Bannon could be.

Based on what I'm hearing, CNN is both jealous and scared of Steve Bannon.

Anderson Pooper: "Steven Bannon is now going to be able to make news, instead of reporting it. He going to be at the center of power!" (JEALOUSY! ha-ha-ha)

CNN is SCARED because Steve Bannon (aka "The General") will be in charge of the covert attacks that our government will administer, to bring CNN to an end. That be a happy day for a lot of conservatives and Trump supporters in general.

Steve Bannon aka "The Rightwing Nut" from Breitbard aka "The Rightwing Nut Echochamber".

This is NOT a person any sane person would want to see in a position of power!


It is like Goebbels who was appointed by Hitler. But not so talented in propaganda, only louder!

Thanks for vid, this guy is as informed as you get "socialism for the rich, socialism for the poor, the middle get the bill paying for their own destruction" (paraphrasing)

A true American , hurts that most Liberals think he's a white supremacist when in fact he represents the original values of America , a constitutional republic.

Donald Trump campaign insiders say that Bannon was a critical leader of operations that delivered the victory for Donald Trump.

But as we all know, Donald is his own man. Steve Bannon will give input, but President Trump will make all final decisions.

The (always wrong) MSM is acting as if Donald Trump is just a front-guy for the real President... the Evil Steve Bannon, LOL.

You don't get promoted to Naval Commander being a hate filled racists. He also had to work with black naval officers. I have not heard any of them ever come out and say anything about him. Calling this BS.

Bannon is a propagandist, but little talent is needed to get the attention of the Right Wing. They fall for anything these days.
