Can you provide us with a direct link to a pro Breitbart white nationalist statement/ article or one from Bannon himself or are we only offering conjecture?

I'm far more concerned with what's going on behind the scenes regarding what he and Mercer are up to. Breitbart has already expanded operations to the UK and they've reportedly been looking to expand into France and other European countries. CA's first big contract was with the pro-Brexit group Leave.EU btw.


Mercer is definitely on my list... I think now I'll make him the next person I research and try to understand his role in all this. I never liked the way Bannon took over Breitbart after Andrew died... that still rubs me the wrong way, but I can't put a finger on it yet.


There is clearly an agenda. My personal opinion, tentatively speaking, is that it has something to do with the rise of a new faction of "elites" that is hankering for a clash of civilizations with predominantly Muslim countries. Of course even that might just be another means to an end. I really haven't had the time recently to spend poking around (as much as any of we web sleuths can).


Thank you for the nudge in that direction -- I can see that.


You might want to look over that thread of mine I linked earlier. SCL Group/Cambridge Analytica is pretty scary stuff.


I have it up, I'll read it when I have a chance...

You kind of have to wonder how anti-semitic someone can be that was the Chair of a company with a news outlet in Jerusalem.

Breibart Jerusalem

LSM is definitely smearing him.

I Know Steve Bannon, He’s Not a Racist Crackpot Like Rev. Wright or Terrorist Bomber Like Bill Ayers


But on Sunday the ENTIRE MAINSTREAM MEDIA began attacking Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News and Trump’s chief strategist. The New York Times called Steve Bannon the “Voice of Racism” in their latest headline. I know Steve Bannon and he is not a racist, sexist, Jew-hater or homophobe. The media is lying to you again.


Jim Hoff of the Gateway Pundit tells his own personal story of what Bannon did for him. People that only care about themselves don't reach out to help when you are in dire straights as Bannon did.

IMHO the globalist sponsored media fears Breibart and this is an attempt to discredit them even more than Bannon. Breibart and DrudgeReport are their biggest enemies. It is my understanding the Obama gave control of the Internet to the U.N. because under US jurisdiction free speech can't be controlled, at least in the U.S.

Obama and Angela Merkel Blame Internet and Social Media for Disrupting Globalism

President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are blaming the internet for disrupting the forces of globalism, suggesting that technology is making it more difficult to unite people behind a common purpose.


and they call the Nationalists NAZIs? The full name of Hitler's NAZI party was National Socialist German Workers’ Party.

Hitler didn't get the job done, but NWO hopes to take up where he left off.

It seems in line with what Theantediluvian is saying, though it gives some extra details and has opposite bias from Theantediluvian. On the Hanukkah books for instance; the school didn't think his question was racist. They thought he was asking: if this school is so secular, why are there so many religious books?

It does. It's pretty much what I tell him.

He's super-angry, right now. We basically debate in circles going no where.

Trump could have spared himself and his supporters a lot of grief by not appointing Bannon.


Exactly. At the very least, attaching himself to Bannon shows a lack in judgement.

What a useless, nasty comment that epitomizes 'conjecture' and 'biased accusations.'

As if you have a clue about the content of countless hours of discussion I've had with him.

Based on the fact that Bannon was/is chair of Breitbart News, a known propaganda outlet that serves-up lies and distortions for the extreme Right Wing.

A man that was able to push Breitbart to even further ideological extremes under his control should not have audience with the president of the US.

No. Those who are mistaken are those who think the "Alternative Right" is the same thing as the "alt-right."

The "Alternative Right" was in fact a White Nationalist website begun by the proudly self-proclaimed Richard B. Spencer. The term "alt-right" refers to anyone and everyone who identifies with the political right, but does not accept the entire Republican Party platform.

So it would be accurate to say that everyone in the "Alternative Right" are part of the "alt-right;" but it is NOT accurate to say that everyone in the "alt-right" are part of the "Alternative Right.


That has little to do with anything in my opinion but a recent trend during this election. Trump supporters have taken to referring to themselves as the "Alt-Right" because they've been unwittingly rubbing elbows with the actual Alt-Right. This distinction you speak of is a new development. Essentially people started calling themselves "Alt-Right" about the same time that Clinton gave her "Alt-Right" speech and then after realizing what it referred to, have tried to redefine the term.

As has Bannon & Breitbart who conveniently broke the Alt-Right into the "1488 contingent" and this new segment. I also think you misinterpreted what Milo was saying regarding Spencer. He was not mocking Spencer at all. Again, I'm not saying that Milo is a bigot.

This confusion over "Alt-Right" (which is in fact short for "Alternative Right") didn't occur by happenstance. The term was embraced because of exposure to the Alt-Right by mainstream conservatives in combination with ignorance of the actual Alt-Right by mainstream conservatives.

In other words, what you're speaking of is in my opinion, an attempt at post facto differentiation.

Brietbart might be a commonly cited source of this mainstreaming of the Alt-Right but a large part of it has been via the social media meme war that has been taking place. Look around and you'll people citing things like the tweets of Matt Forney in the context of WikiLeaks releases for instance. People don't know who Matt Forney is (he's an Alt-Right "author") but they liked what he was saying so they just assumed he was "on their side."

Ironically, I believe that Hillary's speech helped push a lot of people toward using the label as well.

If it hasn't been clear, I'm not saying that all people who are now calling themselves "Alt-Right" are bigots. One other tangible link that you might not be aware of is Gavin McInnes. Gavin McInnes was one of the founders of Vice. He's since gone his own way which includes founding the Alt-Right web zine/forum/etc, Proud Boy which claims to support "Western Chauvinism." (EDIT to add: "Western Chauvinism" is the Spencer variety of dressed up white nationalism)

Gavin McInnes has a podcast called "Street Carnage" as part of his media venture The Rebel Media I think it's called? There's also The Gavin McInnes Show which appears to be published through Compound Media. Guests in recent months have included Jack Posobiec, the "Director of Special Projects" for Citizens For Trump, a front for Patriotic Warriors, who you may be familiar with. Other guests have included Mike Cernovich (who became well known from GamerGate).

Here you can see them together in one of their appearances.

Jack Posobiec is an interesting character that I've been aware of for some time. There really isn't room to get into all this here but on the topic of bigotry and the Alt-Right, Citzens For Trump and Roger Stone co-hosted a rally during the Republican National Convention (at which Alex Jones was a keynote speaker which isn't surprising given the Roger Stone/Alex Jones partnership this election). One of the original sponsors of that event was Eternal Sentry. That was until it became public knowledge that Eternal Sentry was in fact, a white nationalist organization. Read here.

A few notes about Jack. He keeps appearing in the strangest places. Remember the alleged incident of a Trump protester with the Rape Melania sign? That's one of Jack's "special projects." He's also figured "bigly" in #PizzaGate. He's the guy who was kicked out of Comet Pizza on video for instance.

"He thinks it will do some good to fingerpoint and label people as racist at every opportunity. It's frustrating. I try to sympathize, but I cannot get him to tell me where such a tactic would lead that is good for anyone. "

Its not a tactic designed to achieve anything except to either shut people up or to force them to admit they're racist. As a tactic, you might tell your BFF that its backfiring. My response to such people, is "Yea, I'm a racist, what are you going to do about it? You're a coward and a bully and this conversation is over..........forever!"

Bannon hasn't come out and personally said anything racist in public, that's against the way the new white nationalists operate. What bothers me is the people with racist ideas he promotes, like Milo. And the people through Milo that have been given validation by Breitbart: Steve Sailer, Richard Spencer, Kevin Mcdonald, etc.

If you're looking for outright blantant racist statements by Bannon you aren't going to find them, and that's what makes this style of racism so insidious. To get an idea of their tactics and how they institute them go to the National Policy Institute website or the Radix journal and read through.

There's plenty evidence of articles with a racist bent on Breitbart, one example is the writings and interviews of John Richwine, who argued for limiting Hispanic immigration on the grounds of difference of IQ's between Hispanic and white people. When Bannon interviewed him himself, he called him "one of the smartest brains" on immigration issues.

While Bannon has not publicly said anything explicitly racist, he does host an intermediary platform for racists and bigots to get their ideas out to people disguised as conservative talking points. This is my problem. He sits at the top keeping his hands "relatively" clean and promotes these far-right wing racist and bigoted ideologies disguised as something the more center right wing eats up.

That's a lot more dangerous than people in hoods having rallies, screaming "white power". Especially considering he was nominated as the chief advisor to the next President of the United States.

"I’m an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy. And I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world, have said repeatedly strong nations make great neighbors. I’ve also said repeatedly that the ethno-nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I’ve never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism.”

- Stephen K. Bannon

Steve Bannon on Politics as War

Anyone can go to Breitbart news right now and look for themselves. They aren't racist or anti-semitic at all! They are reporting what the mainstream media won't. The fact is, Breitbart, like Drudge in the past has become one of the growing alternative new sources for those that do not ideologically left leaning view, but more of a conservative, right leaning ideology. They are targeted because they are a threat to the mainstream media establishment. Now, that one of them is actually in the White House, they are in all out war against them. It's a concerted effort to destroy the opposition.

My BFF doesn't think I am a racist. He knows how I live my life and who I am. I never have to defend myself, like that, with him. Plus, I voted for Johnson and he's not mad at Johnson voters.

What I find myself defending are the millions of Trump voters who are being unfairly defined as 'racist' solely on the fact that they voted for Trump. I don't think that's enough to justify his opinion that they are all FOR racism.

These two candidates were the least liked in history. Many, many people simply cast votes AGAINST the other candidate and not FOR anything, for the most part.

I just don't see what good it does to assume the worst about people. I acknowledge that everyone has prejudices to work on, myself included. But, I don't see what good it does to leap on everything I could perceive as prejudice and label people.
