Steve Bannon: Trump’s Sinister Puppet Master Revealed
By Lawrence Pfeil, Jr.
“Behind every great man, there’s a great woman;” and behind every great fascist, there’s a great puppet master who is the brains and the dogma. Coming into the light now is the shadowy puppet master above Pres. Trump and pulling his strings, Steve Bannon.
Steve Bannon was Trump’s first appointment as “Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor to the President.” Before serving as CEO on Trump’s campaign, he ran Breitbart News, which Bannon called the platform for Alt-Right, the far right, anti-Semitic, homophobic, white nationalist movement.
Bannon himself has publicly stated the Alt-Right’s bigoted hate filled views and has even attacked Speaker Paul Ryan for his, “…social justice Catholicism.”
Bloomberg News has described him as, “the most dangerous political operative in America,” and he now has an unprecedented seat on the National Security Council, ahead of the Joint Chiefs and the Director of National Intelligence. Former National Security Adviser, Susan Rice called this action, “Stone cold crazy!”
In an interview last November with the Hollywood Reporter Bannon said,
“Darkness is good… Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they” — I believe by “they” he means liberals and the media, already promoting calls for his ouster — “get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.”
That is a twisted, frightening, and dangerous statement from someone who believes in white nationalism, and has the most influence over a narcissistic president.
Towards the new presidency, the word so far has been RESIST. But looking at what is at stake and the powers that be, it’s not going to be enough to simply resist. America’s citizen’s, her “new patriots” of all races, faiths, genders, identities, and sexual orientations are going to need to TAKE DECISIVE ACTION and RAISE HELL!
For if we don’t, we surely will be living in an unimaginable Hell.
