STEVE BANNON: THE EVIL GENIUS

steve-bannon-downloadTHE EVIL GENIUS: STEVEN BANNON

“Darkness is good,” Bannon told The Hollywood Reporter’s Michael Wolff. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they [the media] get it wrong. They’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”

“Like [Andrew] Jackson’s populism, we’re going to build an entirely new political movement,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s everything related to jobs. The conservatives are going to go crazy. I’m the guy pushing a trillion-dollar infrastructure plan. With negative interest rates throughout the world, it’s the greatest opportunity to rebuild everything. Shipyards, iron works, get them all jacked up. We’re just going to throw it up against the wall and see if it sticks. It will be as exciting as the 1930s, greater than the Reagan revolution – conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement.”

Now, Bannon predicts Trump will ride his coalition of traditional Republicans and white working-class former Democrats to a permanent electoral powerhouse – perhaps without the small government conservatives who had steered the party for the past eight years. “I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “The globalists gutted the American working class and created a middle class in Asia. The issue now is about Americans looking to not get [expletive] over.”

“If we deliver we’ll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years,” he said. “That’s what the Democrats missed, they were talking to these people with companies with a $9 billion market cap employing nine people. It’s not reality. They lost sight of what the world is about.”

Bannon predicted Trump’s victory over the summer, outlining to Wolff a prescient path through Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan. Then, and now, Bannon noted that many people had completely missed the driving forces that ultimately propelled Trump to victory.

“The media bubble is the ultimate symbol of what’s wrong with this country,” Bannon told The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s just a circle of people talking to themselves who have no [expletive] idea what’s going on. … It’s a closed circle of information from which Hillary Clinton got all her information – and her confidence. That was our opening.”

“It wasn’t just the mainstream media and the liberal elite. Right-leaning Fox News also misunderstood Trump’s appeal to voters.”

This reminds me of how Hitler gained the trust of Germans. Actually, it is exactly how Hitler begin to control them. Read and decide for yourself.  K. D. Dowdall

    1. Hi Keith, I thank you so much for your comment. I was really using that word fallaciously, to prove how ridiculous that word usage is by the reporter who used it to describe “Steve Bannon” [Evil Genius]. Many villains are often portrayed as “evil” geniuses as a way to discredit them. So, I don’t believe Bannon is in anyway a genius, he is a bigot and generally in need of mental help. The article is what is important. He is way over his head – out of his true element of self grandiose self-entitlement, a projection of himself that does not really exist in reality, and he will crumble.

  1. As an editor, I would advise restraint in giving Evil the accolade of Genius, but I agree and thank you for posting this.

    Currently I am in the Rationalization stage of the grieving process. I think, “I’m middle class, white, and male. I should be okay. I should be able to float in this cesspool.”

    As an editor and a human, the rationalization makes me feel sad about myself as well as my country. #Thanks2Trump

    1. I know what you are feeling. So many friends, acquaintances, and family members feel great fear for the future and grief for the loss sense of goodness, ethics, honor, dignity, decency, diversity, and for democracy. We feel like our whole way of life, our belief of what it means to be an American, that sense pride, has been so damaged.
      I felt that way for a single day and then I thought, who are these people? I suddenly felt this fierce determination. How dare they think they can take our democracy and try to turn it into a white nationalist party plutocracy/oligarchy, that can only lead to fascism or worse. Please don’t be sad, welcome this challenge! Our voices count, every day, we must use our freedom of speech, loud and clear, until even the Trumps and the Bannons of the world must listen and they must know, without doubt, they can never change why we came to this country in the first place!

    1. Hi Tg, yes. We can’t normalize what Trump as done to promote fear, hate, bigotry, racism, and misogyny. I fight ever day, I write about here on WP, on Twitter, on Facebook, everyday. I have joined every single petition, website to let my voice be heard. We have freedom of the press and freedom of speech, let’s use it. Already, Trump was “demanding” that the diverse group of actors on the Broadway show, Hamilton, apologize to Pence and Trump is not even in the White house, yet. So, yes, please use your voice! Thank you so much for commenting. Karen

  3. The difference between us and a Pre-Nazi Germany is that we have the HISTORY of pre-Nazi Germany to remember. The generation that raised me said NEVER AGAIN. They meant it. Maybe almost three million of us who did not vote for Trump feel the same. All it takes is not standing up. And guess what the young people of this country have been teaching us lately: SOME THINGS are worth standing up for. Be counted. Make your voice heard, because it is easier to live with than saying nothing.
