It's more the fact that he reads vile nonsense.

You can literally look at the guy and see he is not balanced. He may well be brilliant but that doesn't mean he's healthy or functional. Add to it his actual opinions/editorials and it's a disturbing situation. What I don't get is why everyone tiptoes around the idea that Trump is under the influence of a very dodgy dude. All this pandering to Trumps outrageous claims and inept policies is giving me an ulcer. It's like the media is enjoying the feeding frenzy rather than actually doing their job. I do not give 2 #s what Trump tweets but I do care who is pulling his strings.

The assumption that Trump is a marionette of Bannon's is unwarranted. It turns out such an argument is made true only by sheer force of repetition, and no other reason. Trump has been in the leadership roles for close to half a century with his own organization, that it would be either an ignorant stretch, or a malicious lie, to assume someone else is pulling the strings for him now.

Of course, as we now have learned, Bannon's extremism will likely lead to genocidal ideations, making him more dangerous than any terrorist, something which we can infer because Bannon alluded to a work of fiction on a few occasions. I myself have alluded to 120 days of Sodom in the past, shamefully, so I hope that my own extremist views wont lead to sadistic ideations. Nonetheless, I still hold out in the hope that such cynicism about other people is the result of groupthink and irrationality as opposed to real states of affairs, but you never know, Bannon may be secretly running the country, and we are headed to conditions not seen since the nazis.

The problem is, when everyone is Hitler, no one is Hitler.

If he was a true leader, he wouldn't get his Tweet talking points from cable news programs.

That's a crazy non sequitur, but I like it.

But wait ... when Anita Dunn called Mao her favorite political philosopher implying she had read the little red book, this was no big deal. But when Bannon cites a similarly controversial work, it means he has morphed into the Anti-Christ or Hitler?

Would that mean that if I were to say I have read Marx and Alinsky, despite my many times stated views here, people would now start calling me an evil socialist commie?

1. Not everyone believes Bannon is a scuzz.
2. Not everyone believes Trump is under any influence of his (in fact the animated argument CNN filmed through the Oval Office windows last week would indicate anything but a compliant Trump/Bannon relationship.)
3. Not all of us consider Trump's policies inept and his claims, while outrageous, do strike a chord with many and are oftentimes plausible if not evidenced.

I get that. I was there for about two weeks. Then reality set in.

I choose not to engage much with politics on ATS anymore. I will just add: Look also into The Fourth Turning, another book he has frequently referenced. Whether one thinks it's a good thing or a bad thing, combining those two works (the one in this topic and the latter I just mentioned,) results in a picture of his perspective on issues of national and cultural identity and how that is affected by external entities, imo, emerging or at least beginning to take shape.

Again, whether you think that's a good thing, or a bad thing.

Peace.

Don't even talk about eugenics till you address Obamas science czar John Holdren who believes it's ok to mass sterilize the population by medicating the water supplies. I've posted this several times and it gets ignored by Left leaners. In fact the radical left rioters have made it clear who
They want to eliminate.

You are too obsessed with Bannon as well as most leftists are obsessed with Roger Stone and Sessions.

Breaking news, not everyone agrees with the Marxists ideology of International Socialism.

a reply to: Templeton

It is in fact filth
I'll tell you what. I'm going to write a book on how white people are inferior to people of color. Both intellectually and um...Physically - if you catch my drift. Then, we'll see how eager you are when I give a bunch of free books to your kids to read. They didn't do it with the book in the OP but your small minded approach has seriously pissed me TF off. Templeton? More like Simpleton. You're the kind of guy who makes $40k per year and thinks the right supports him and his family. The bankers think it's hilarious you aren't smart enough to figure it out, btw.
Simple and basic as simple and basic does. Or, should I say, duhhh-s.
I'd rather be a card carrying Democrat than a tiny world, lives in a hate filled box, supporting candidates who dgaf about me than a #ing Republican any day.
