2013: “I’m a Leninist,” Steve Bannon proudly proclaimed.
Bannon, Trump’s chief strategist, has some incredibly controversial views about… well, everything.
His goal was to bring down the entire American establishment, including the leaders of the Republican Party in Congress.
“Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.”
Bannon’s language sounds strikingly similar to a lot of the things Trump has said. For example:
“National Review and The Weekly Standard are both left-wing magazines, and I want to destroy them also… no one reads them or cares what they say.”
Unfortunately, it also comes with a lot of racist subtext:
When the reporter asked him if he wanted to comment on or correct the account of meeting, Bannon responded:
“I don’t remember meeting you and don’t remember the conversation. And as u can tell from the past few days I am not doing media.”
As the Bolshevik leader Bannon loves once said, “The art of any propagandist and agitator consists in his ability to find the best means of influencing any given audience, by presenting a definite truth, in such a way as to make it most convincing, most easy to digest, most graphic, and most strongly impressive.”
Looks like Bannon learned his Lenin lessons.
***SHARE if you think Bannon is a DESPICABLE person to run our country!! Comment if you agree he and Trump need to be OUT of the White House!
