Awesome Bannon Blasts Bush, Calls for Republican Revolt

The day after globalist stooge George W. Bush blasted Trump along comes Steve Bannon in a rousing denunciation of Bush and establishment Republicans.

The Guardian

Steve Bannon has depicted former President George W Bush as bumbling and inept, faulting him for presiding over a “destructive” presidency during his time in the White House.

The former White House adviser delivered a retort to a speech Bush gave in New York during the week in which the 43rd president denounced bigotry in Trump-era American politics and warned that the rise of “nativism”, isolationism and conspiracy theories have clouded the nation’s true identity.

Bannon, speaking to a capacity crowd at a California Republican party convention on Friday night, said Bush had embarrassed himself, didn’t know what he was talking about, and had no idea whether “he is coming or going, just like it was when he was president”.

“There has not been a more destructive presidency than George Bush’s,” Bannon added, as boos could be heard in the crowd at the mention of Bush’s name.

The remarks came during a speech thick with attacks on the Washington status quo, echoing his call for an “open revolt” against establishment Republicans. He called the “permanent political class” one of the great dangers faced by the country.

A small group of protesters gathered outside the hotel where Bannon spoke, chanting and waving signs — one displaying a Nazi swastika. The protesters were kept behind steel barricades on a plaza across an entrance road at the hotel, largely out of view of people entering for the event. No arrests were reported.

Bannon also took aim at the Silicon Valley and its “lords of technology”, predicting that tech leaders and progressives in the state would try to secede from the union in 10 to 15 years. He called the threat to break up the nation a “living problem”.

He also tried to cheer long-suffering California Republicans, in a state that Trump lost by over 4 million votes and where Republicans have become largely irrelevant in state politics. In Orange county, where the convention was held, several Republican House members are trying to hold on to their seats in districts carried by Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential contest.

“You’ve got everything you need to win,” he told them. The speech ended to a standing ovation.

Bannon is promoting a field of primary challengers to take on incumbent Republicans in Congress. But in California the GOP has been fading for years.

The state has become a kind of Republican mausoleum: GOP supporters can relive the glory days by visiting the stately presidential libraries of Ronald Reagan and Richard Nixon, but today Democrats control every statewide office and rule both chambers of the Legislature by commanding margins.

Not all Republicans were glad to see Bannon. In a series of tweets last week the former state assembly Republican leader Chad Mayes said he was shocked by the decision to have the conservative firebrand headline the event.

“It’s a huge step backward and demonstrates that the party remains tone deaf,” Mayes tweeted.

California Republicans have bickered for years over what direction to turn – towards the political center or to the right.

Bannon also argued that the coalition that sent Trump to the White House, including conservatives, libertarians, populists, economic nationalists, evangelicals, could hold power for decades if they stay unified.

“If you have the wisdom, the strength, the tenacity, to hold that coalition together, we will govern for 50 to 75 years,” he said.

Most of the state’s governors in the 20th century were Republicans and state voters helped elevate a string of GOP presidential candidates to the White House. But the party’s fortunes started to erode in the late 1990s after a series of measures targeting immigrants, which alienated growing segments of the state’s population.

In 2007, then-governor Arnold Schwarzenegger warned party members that the GOP was “dying at the box office” and needed to move to the political center and embrace issues like climate change to appeal to a broader range of voters. In 2011 a state Republican party committee blocked an attempt by moderates to push the state GOP platform toward the center on immigration, abortion, guns and gay rights.

The decline continued. Republicans are now a minor party in many California congressional districts, outnumbered by Democrats and independents. Statewide, Democrats count 3.7 million more voters than the GOP.

Political scientist Jack Pitney, who teaches at Claremont McKenna College, said he doubted the speech would color the 2018 congressional contests, which remain far off for most voters.

More broadly, he said Bannon’s politics would hurt the GOP, including among affluent, well-educated voters who play an important part in county elections.

“Inviting him was a moral and political blunder,” Pitney said.

Unsaid by Bannon is the fact that the Republican coalition is overwhelmingly white because only whites in large numbers reject big government and open borders. Republicans had better remember that without white people, they would not exist.

  1. The party of do nothing whiners and apologists needs to die a slow, lingering death and all of its enablers sent home to beg on street corners. Shame, we’ll have to destroy the Republicans before we get to our natural enemies, the Democrats.

  2. I am in Mexifornia right now. I have made a dozen trips here in the last fifteen months. Kalifornitard is finished. There are no white people here, everything is run down and trashy, the roads are terrible, homeless everywhere, and a weird feeling of this place being a foreign Third-World country. It is lost. The only way out of this mess will be a shooting conflict whereby us evil YT’s will either get our backs up and do what is necessary to rid our nation of the colored invaders and jews, or we will meekly submit and become an endangered species in our own land.

  3. we are already an endangered species in our own land. we have little chance of winning further elections. it’s us against leftist whites and jews, not to mention the blacks, arabs and gays and most hispanics. frightening!!! george w is a moron. the bush family is closely linked with the saudis. creepy.

  4. Bannon’s advantage…strong support of White Trump voters.

    “If you have the wisdom, the strength, the tenacity, to hold that coalition together.”

    Serious problem with Whites, can’t get them moving in one direction. Some always take side roads thinking they have better ideas…and very few do.

    Maybe, Bannon, like Trump, will be a leader capable of accomplishing the impossible.

      • That’s one accusation I haven’t heard from the left, but he does appear frumpy at times…needs a shorter haircut, but also, he has rosacea, more widespread on his cheeks, nose, and chin than Trump who covers it up using a bronzer.

        A lot of the frumpiness, I think, comes from his hair falling all over the place.

        He does wear nice suits, shirts, and ties, but is overweight; which might cause him to appear sloppy. He could have them custom-tailored for a better fit.

        I’m looking past all that hoping his intelligence and determination will win.

  5. Over at the Conservative Treehouse, Sundance (web host) says about Bannon’s speech in California:

    “If you can get past the first barf-inducing five minutes where Alt-Ego Steve Bannon tells the audience how his incredible brilliance won the 2016 Presidential Campaign and saved a somewhat nice but generally weak candidate, Donald Trump, from certain crushing defeat…. if you can get yourself past that point of rewriting history (admission: I barely made it)… well, the rest of the speech seems worthwhile.”

    And his little peepies who would run into his azz if he stopped immediately, attacked the one disagreeing with him. And so they did. Herd mentality doesn’t lend itself to independent thought. Now, all these azz kissing Trump supporters hate Bannon except one.

    The first “barf-inducing five minutes” were merely Bannon explaining Trump was down 16 points and what he (Bannon) who had the authority did about it. Trump did disagree with Bannon in the past about this, but from what I could find, without Bannon, Trump could have lost.

    About 45 minutes.
