You have to hand it to Steve Bannon, at least he’s not hiding behind the mask of a Birther. Unlike the Birther-In-Chief, Donald J. Trump.
In light of Steve Bannon’s comments at a gathering of the French National Front Party, I think it’s important for those of us who always suspected Steve Bannon was a sick man to reflect on the depth of his sickness and what it means when this type of unhinged racist spends the election season whispering sweet nothings into the ear of the man who used the Electoral College to steal the presidency.
Is it any wonder they were offended when Barack Obama won the popular vote? Is it any wonder they were offended when Colin Kaepernick took a knee? Is it any wonder they felt both sides were to blame in Charlottesville? In the last case, it is a wonder since now I know they really felt one side was to blame: the protesters.
Speaking of landing squarely on the wrong side of history, Steve Bannon’s favorite movie is “Triumph of the Will,” a white nationalist disease brought to life by Leni Riefenstahl. It helped launch the political career of a little known author of a little known book called “Mein Kampf.”
In a word: oy!
If you wear racism as a badge of honor, you’re dishonorably discharged. If you wear homophobia as a badge of honor, you’re dishonorably discharged. If you bash refugees, if you bash immigrants, if you grab women for sport, you’re dishonorably discharged.
By the power vested in me as an American Patriot whose spirit animal has walked with his tail between his legs on the Trail Of Tears, I hereby revoke the citizenship of Steve Bannon. Stamp his passport “Denied.”
By the power vested in me as the spiritual soul mate of Simon Wiesenthal, the infamous Nazi Hunter, I hereby revoke the humanity of Steve Bannon. Stamp his forehead with a Swastika.
By the power vested in me as a man who gender identifies as a 15 year old girl with emotions on high, I hereby revoke the manhood of Steve Bannon. Wait a second. I can’t do that. I can’t revoke what was never his to begin with. Steve Bannon was never a man.
