Steve Bannon’s Candid New Interview May Get Him Fired

This is #2 of two posts today on Steve Bannon. I wasn’t planning to do these today, but the Bannon interview on Wednesday has hit the trending news big this morning. It’s the big story on Drudge this morning, for example.

Bannon’s opinion is that White Nationalism needs to be crushed because White Nationalists are clowns and losers.

Hmmm. Big, if really true.

But Bannon could easily be gaslighting liberals with those remarks.

The other focus in the interview was on Chinese economics and North Korean military threats. I’ve bolded the things that may cause the President to blow his stack.

83 percent, including me, voted “No” in this poll. I don’t think the new interview is going to change that.

Washington Post

Stephen K. Bannon, the White House chief strategist, seemed to take issue with President Trump on North Korea, attacked white supremacists as “clowns” and “losers” and described his efforts against administration rivals in an unusual interview Wednesday with The American Prospect, a progressive magazine.

The interview with magazine co-editor and columnist Robert Kuttner was initiated by Bannon, Kuttner said, in an Anthony Scaramucci-style phone call out of the blue in response to a column Kuttner had written on China.

“Bannon was in high spirits when he phoned me Tuesday afternoon to discuss the politics of taking a harder line with China, and minced no words describing his efforts to neutralize rivals at the Departments of Defense, State and Treasury,” wrote Kuttner.

“‘They’re wetting themselves,’ he said, proceeding to detail how he would oust some of his opponents at State and Defense.”

On North Korea, Bannon said: “‘Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.’”

That comment seemed at odds with Trump’s “fire and fury” threats to use military force against North Korea.

On China, Bannon told Kuttner that the United States was at “economic war” and warned that “one of us is going to be a hegemon in 25 or 30 years and it’s gonna be them if we go down this path,” according to the article.

“On Korea, they’re just tapping us along. It’s just a sideshow,” he said.

Bannon was also asked by Kuttner to comment on the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville last weekend and President’ Trump’s reluctance to condemn the participants.

“Ethno-nationalism — it’s losers. It’s a fringe element,” Bannon told the magazine. “I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, eh, help crush it more.”

“These guys are a collection of clowns,” he added.

The remarks were startling coming from Bannon, who spent more than four years running the far-right website Breitbart News before he was tapped to join Trump’s campaign.

Bannon, the site’s former executive chair, has called the Breitbart “a platform of the alt-right.”

The alt-right, by some definitions, is a small, deeply conservative movement that seeks a whites-only state. It was his strategy to use the site to channel white supremacist support for Trump and provide a mouthpiece for his populist message during the 2016 election, a move that helped secure him a senior role in the administration.

In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, which left a counterprotester dead and others injured, civil rights leaders have called on Trump to fire Bannon over his ties to the white nationalist community, as The Washington Post has reported.

Asked by reporters Tuesday if he still had confidence in his chief strategist, Trump deflected.

“He’s not a racist, I can tell you that,” Trump said. “But we’ll see what happens with Mr. Bannon.”

Kuttner wrote in Wednesday’s article that he was surprised when he got an email from one of Bannon’s assistants saying he wanted to arrange a meeting. The two ended up speaking by phone on Tuesday afternoon, according to the article.

When the conversation turned to race and the events in Charlottesville, Bannon dodged questions about his role in cultivating the alt-right, according to the article. He also faulted Democrats for focusing on identity politics.

“The longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em,” he said.” I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

Kuttner said he was puzzled by the fact that Bannon would call an editor at a progressive magazine and “assume that a possible convergence of views on China trade might somehow paper over the political and moral chasm on white nationalism.”

“The question of whether the phone call was on or off the record never came up,” he said. “This is also puzzling, since Steve Bannon is not exactly Bambi when it comes to dealing with the press. He’s probably the most media-savvy person in America.”

Unless Bannon was drunk, he knew exactly what he was doing. He’s trying to push the military and racial aspects of the Trump presidency into the background in order to get back to that slogan that worked so well for Bill Clinton: “It’s the economy stupid.”

Bannon’s war is going to be fought not with guns and bullets, but with international trade laws and agreements that the average person knows little about.

Meanwhile, back at the DNC:

  1. “White Nationalists need to be crushed because they are clowns and losers.”

    “Ethno-nationalism — it’s losers. It’s a fringe element,” “we gotta help crush it, you know, eh, help crush it more.”

    And…he’s an advisor to Trump?

    Yes, he has to go!!!!!

    • Gaslighting? It’s what Microchip advises that we sometimes do. Make the libs think they’re crazy by directly contradicting what we’ve said before. I’m not saying for sure he’s gaslighting, but I intend to do it with some future writings and interactions with people.

  2. Many WNs are losers, hence the movement’s historical losing streak. However, this doesn’t discredit the ideas. On the filp side, you see CEOs and Politicians all mouthing the PC line. Why do the most selfish, egotistical, and status-obsessed people posture as the most multicultural and altruistic, while the the “losers” vote for Trump?

    • “Money talks and bullshit walks”.
      The Money is with the Jews and the Multicult pro Immigration CEOs. The mass of the white population who voted for Trump are in effect bullshitting themselves or “pissing into the wind”.
      The 1% has more power than the 99%. In all former white nation democracies, incredibly enough. Might was well go back to monarchies who have more concern for their subjects than do (((Oligarchs))).
      The 99% could easily wipe out the 1% with pitchforks. Why do they not do it? Maybe the Govt afterwards would be even worse. Lenin and Stalin type figures might suddenly be in charge.

  3. First of all, Bannon gave the interview to an obscure paper called “The American Prospect”. Its actually A FAR LEFT JEWISH PROSPECT, as its run by Robert Reich, the miniature jew from the first Obama admin.

    This was definitely calculated move by Bannon and HE WILL NOT GET FIRED

    in 2017 “Ethno-nationalism — it’s losers. HE IS RIGHT, WAIT TILL LIKE 2020

    It’s a fringe element,” Bannon told the magazine. SUPER DOWNPLAYING IT, as he knows DailyStormer helped Trump get elected. People who never voted, voted 4 Trump

    “I think the media plays it up too much, TRUE, SHUT UP MEDIA OR PLAY THE WHOLE TRUTH

    and we gotta help crush it, you know, eh, help crush it more.” FEEDING THE DREAMS TO THE JEWS AS JEWS KNOW VERY WELL, THAT WHITES ARE NOT GOING ANYWHERE

    “These guys are a collection of clowns,” he added. CLOWNS AS IN: FIRST THE LAUGH AT YOU??? Sorry to brake it to Bannon, but the movement is much much larger thanks to the interwebs

  4. I think we need to regroup. New name….no more Alt-Right or White Nationalists. No sense in using something that isn’t working.

    Can we come up with a catchy name that clearly means European Americans that has no Republican, no far right, connotations? At this point, I see it detrimental to associate with Republicans, the far right, at all. Any suggestions?

    • Microchip uses the #newright hashtag. Not sure that works. Battle Beagle uses #dogright, but we’re not dogs. I call myself a traditionalist in my best moments. I’ll keep an ear pealed when I watch Stxy’s vids and see what he calls himself. @maryluvsfreedom may have something with the word “freedom.”

      • New Right already has a negative connotation, has ‘right’ in it. Dogright???????????? I’ll ask my dog what he thinks about that?

        Since we’re no longer thought of as Americans as in the past, needs to be something addressing European Americans. That’s not specifically racial, not conservative or Republican, not “right.”

        What else would distinguish us from the Alt-right, White Nationalists, Supremacists, KKK, and Neo-Nazis because that’s what we are according to 90% of the population.

      • They’ll still call us Nazis no matter what we do. The only way to avoid that is to get on board with their agenda 100 percent. But take a look at what the Europeans opposed to immigration call themselves. Front National in France. I can’t recall the others in Poland, Hungary, Sweden, etc. The youths call themselves Generation Identity, right?

      • The Know Nothings is a great and appropriate name. They also did a lot of their work underground as they knew the system was rigged against white Anglo Saxon people in the USA – 170 years ago.
        I could argue the USA turned to shit within about 70 years of breaking from the Mother Country.

    • Why not “One Nation” as exists in Australia? The left (and so called “right”) hates it as they think it has a hint of whites only about it, even though not stated in the name.

      The female leader wore a burqa in to her seat in parliament recently (The Senate). She was not stopped by security! To howls of outrage from all the other parties. The Greens hugged the most Conservative pollies in the chamber, all united in Muzzie loving, all as one in opposition to this stunt. Yet all these parties should in theory want to see many women in burqas in parliament. Of course, Muzz men would never allow this and the (((goy stooges))) all know this. The beauty of diversity – only Muslim men may speak for Muslim women.

      • They might like it, more publicity for them.
        It has already been done (the name), but I do not know if they are connected with onenation dot com dot au. The Aussie one is definitely far right, pro white, and is hated by the media and the Joos. They have a zero net immigration policy which is considered racist these days, shocking even and anti-Ponzi scheme (((economics))). Where will all the new baby niggers live if the West shuts the doors and removes the welcome mat? How will Sydney real estate prices keep rising without criminal Chinks and unemployed Coons flooding the market? The Govt buys houses to rent cheap to the Coons living on welfare – but not elderly white males who have paid tax for 40 years.

        I like the way the first photo at the top only has whites in it,
        “This was the Founders’ vision for America: a nation forged from different cultures, countries, creeds and classes”. Did those founders really love wogs and tinted people who did not speak English? Did they really hate their own British fathers and the Crown that much, which amounts to self-hate? Did they prefer Germans and French and Poles and Russians and Italians and jews to their own British stock? If so, then damn the Yankees as the saying goes.

        “Be careful what you wish for, you might get it”.

  5. How about calling ourselves the YT Gang, or Big YT, or Hugh Mungous YT, or something like that? BTW, that jew midget, Reich, is creepy little fellow. His last name is the German word for “empire” as in the Third Reich, so Robert Reich is an evil Naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

  6. People in the White House need to shut up and never, ever telephone Jews or (((Journalists))). Presumably Kuttner is one of the tribe. It seems hardly necessary to look it up. If the man is an editor, with a Germanic (Yid) or Jewey name (Heeb), he is a jew. Same for folks who get to work in the White House or Govt or Hollywood or Federal reserve or Banking or make Youtube videos.

    “Kuttner said he was puzzled by the fact that Bannon would call an editor at a progressive magazine and “assume that a possible convergence of views on China trade might somehow paper over the political and moral chasm on white nationalism.”

    “The question of whether the phone call was on or off the record never came up,” he said. “This is also puzzling, since Steve Bannon is not exactly Bambi when it comes to dealing with the press. He’s probably the most media-savvy person in America.”

    Was it Bannon or a man imitating his voice?

    • Robert,

      Very odd or is it he thought Jews so important to call them?

      “and minced no words describing his efforts to neutralize rivals at the Departments of Defense, State and Treasury,” wrote Kuttner.

      “‘They’re wetting themselves,’ he said, proceeding to detail how he would oust some of his opponents at State and Defense.”

      WOW! Evidently, he thought this conversation was confidential.

      “On North Korea, Bannon said: “‘Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.’”

      Another WOW! Let’s tell Kim he can’t be defeated!

      On China, Bannon told Kuttner that the United States was at “economic war” and warned that “one of us is going to be a hegemon in 25 or 30 years and it’s gonna be them if we go down this path,” according to the article.

      Just when Trump is trying to make trade deals, by saying this, does he think China will cooperate now?

      “On Korea, they’re just tapping us along. It’s just a sideshow,” he said.

      Will anyone else think it’s a sideshow when they have full nuclear capability?

  7. Robert,

    “One Nation” Australia is a political party.

    “One Nation” America

    https://www.onenationamerica.org/about/

    “E pluribus unum. Out of many, one. This was the Founders’ vision for America: a nation forged from different cultures, countries, creeds and classes – yet unified by a common commitment to freedom, democratic governance and guaranteed individual rights. We’re dedicated to pursuing that vision: helping to solve America’s great problems and seize America’s greater opportunities through persuasion, research and advocacy.”

    “This was the Founders’ vision for America: a nation forged from different cultures, countries, creeds and classes.”

    Not true, of course. Founders created the U.S. for their own kind. Immigrants, Whites, only if their specialized expertise was needed.

    Their policies are exactly those of Trump’s, but I don’t like the different cultures, countries, creeds, and classes.
