Ever since Donald Trump was elected president, both the national and the international media have frequently focused on Trump’s plans to target immigration and dismantle the existing health-care and education systems. However, most of them have ignored the fact that the real author of these plans is not Trump, but his principal advisor, Stephen Bannon, who is a despicable and intelligent person, and refuses any sort of prominence to focus on his work without raising suspicions.
Bannon demonstrated his intelligence and influence during the last presidential election when he was the person most responsible (a campaign chief) for planning Trump’s campaign that eventually led his victory. Bannon was also the person who recommended that Trump use fierce rhetoric against immigration, the media, and the establishment. Without his presence there Trump would not have been elected President.
As if that were not enough, Bannon was recently selected by Trump to be on the National Security Council board. This group is responsible for advising President Trump regarding national security and foreign policy. Bannon’s presence there has raised increasing concerns among politicians and experts due to his lack of knowledge about security. Many think that he may try to mislead President Trump in order to achieve his personal goals. However, to better understand why experts and the international community have expresed concerns about Stephen Bannon, it is necessary to know his background.
Before working for Trump’s administration, Stephen Bannon was the executive chairman of Breitbart News LLC. An American news outlet linked to controversies and the mass fabrication of stories, intended to demonise gays, Muslims, immigrants and liberals. In addition, under Bannon’s leadership, the site has promoted racism, and anti-Muslim ideas, and it has been accused of white nationalism. Bannon once said:
“I think strong countries and strong nationalist movements in countries make strong neighbours.”“And that is really the building blocks that built Western Europe and the United States, and I think it’s what can see us forward.”
Breitbart has published dozens of stories accusing U.S. Muslims of sympathising with terrorism.The site has also mocked LGBTQ people, feminists and women, and has also denied the existence of climate change, insisted that Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin was an agent of the Muslim Brotherhood, and served as a propaganda arm for the Trump campaign.
Controversial BreitBart’s News Headlines:
‘The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off’
‘Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade Jew’
‘Trannies whine about hilarious Bruce Jenner billboard’
‘Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy’
‘Suck it up buttercups: Dangerous Faggot Tour returns to colleges in September’
‘Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?’
‘Gay rights have made us dumber, it’s time to get back in the closet’
Bannon has also promoted anti-Semitic conspiracies about globalist cabal of bankers.“We call ourselves ‘the Fight Club.’ You don’t come to us for warm and fuzzy,” said Bannon.
Banon has also expressed his concerns that the United States and the: “Judeo-Christian West” are in a war against an expansionist Islamic ideology. Speaking about Breitbart, Bannon has said:
“We’re the platform for the alt-right.” According to NPR, “The views of the alt-right are widely seen as anti-Semitic and white supremacist.”
Aside from his work as the executive chairman of Breitbart, Bannon has had a disturbing past. He is considered a supremacist who advocates for Alt-Right organisations from all over the world. Probably the most worrying thing is that Bannon has never hidden his global fascist vision and, according to his inner circles, he still praises those who led fascism in European countries such as Germany or Italy during the WWII.
Bannon’s ties with European fascism go further. During UK referendum on the European Union in 2016, Bannon used Breitbart’s propaganda machinery to advocate for Brexit while simultaneously praising Nigel Farage, the leader of UKIP (an anti-immigration political party) at the moment. However, his contact with emergent European Alt-Right political leaders did not finish there. Since the Brexit decision, Bannon has increased his contacts with other leaders such as Marine Le Pen (France) and Geert Wilders (the Netherlands), according to several European sources whose name cannot be revealed for security issues. Bannon and Marine Le Pen have met several times to discuss the potential creation of an international coalition to change the world if Le Pen wins the French elections.
Given that Le Pen has a good chance to win the French elections, she has become a global threat. Bannon, who is no longer the executive chairman at Breitbart’s news, has ordered them to initiate a propaganda campaign to weaken her opponents. In addition, Marine Le Pen has confirmed that she will imitate Trump’s Presidential campaign strategy. It is clear that Bannon is not limiting himself to setting up an authoritarian system in the U.S.; his vision goes [much] further. Apparently, he will not stop until such a system is created, or until his ideas and policies are spread worldwide.
A year ago, it was unthinkable that someone with Trump’s characteristics could be elected the president of the U.S., but Bannon‘s hidden efforts helped him get elected in the end. Bannon knew that there were millions of Americans disenchanted with the existing system, and he knew how to exploit it. He also knew that Sanders did not have much chance to win, which made Trump’s election possible.
While much of the American and the international media will continue to undervalue Bannon’s real influence, he will continue working quietly behind scenes, like a termite, slowly but unceasingly planning to plan his next move to achieve his life’s goal; a world governed by authoritarians united to spread fear, and to target, and persecute those who act and think differently.

President Bannon is the stuff of which nightmares are made.
And the civil disobedience that will follow is exactly what he wants
This man is deplorable. He is the worst worst of the rich white male in our country. He is also an abuser and sounds like he is drunk all the time. http://www.snopes.com/2016/11/14/steve-bannon-was-accused-of-domestic-violence/
Eee! He’s a nasty piece of work isn’t he? But then, so many of Trump’s inner circle are…
You are right to illuminate the dangers Bannon poses. Objective media and independent thinkers must continue to monitor and expose him for what he is — a highly corrosive influence bent on destruction in our democratic society.
The Trump adminstration is lousy with Breitbart goons. To wit, this piece of work, Sebastian Gorka.
Interesting article — and warning. From this side of the Pacific he seems like a driving force behind the social disintegration and declining global profile of the US. Thanks.
We have a female version of him in Australia but not with the intellect to rival Bannon. She runs the anti-Islam line and much of the other same stuff he does. If you like, we could export her so she has good company over there and we are free of her. Anyone want to support her residential US visa applciation?
Really it’s just mind-boggling that someone like Bannon has the influence over our government that he has.
Excellent write-up. Mind boggling to me that someone with Bannon’s opinions has the Presidents ear.

He is the man to fear most of all. The puppeteer.

I don’t know much about American politics, but I do know a little about British parties and their policies. I didn’t vote UKIP in the last election, but to state that Nigel Farage is anti-immigration is a little simplistic.
What he and myriad others were looking to achieve is UK sovereignty and control over own borders, in the face of mass immigration. Unelected men and women in Europe had (and sell have) more control over who comes here than our own parliament.
The sad fact is that a HUGE number of immigrants fill the UK service industry with personnel, and most of them are country mile better than our home grown English “talent”. Without them we’d have nobody serving in most of our restaurants, building sites, and grocery stores.
We just had two seats in the House of Parliament contested, and UKIP won neither, but there are plenty of people that sympathise with the notion that a sovereign state should control her own borders. I agree with them, but I’d go one further. I’d lobby to keep hard working immigrants and give the last British spongers a one way ticket across the English Channel (that’s a bit tongue in cheek, but you get my drift).
The the next occasion Someone said a weblog, Hopefully it doesnt disappoint me just as much as this place. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something fascinating to say. All I hear is a lot of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy in search of attention.
