The following excerpted article (from a religious web site) is consistent with my thesis that we are experiencing a significant phenomenon of fascist propaganda, which the average sleeping person (including non-Americans) are too ignorant and distracted to comprehend. Steve Bannon, is likely a good Catholic boy, and has no sincere animus (beyond the typical Catholic theological bias) for Jews. Here he is able, like the Apostle Paul (the original Goebbels), to be "all things to all people". This guy is so good that he turned a rabidly pro-Zionist media outlet into a center for white race nationalist to rally around. Not just one of many such sites, but one that had massively more hits in the run up to the election that most mainstream media outlets. This happened because he was able to piggyback on Breitbart's already existing extreme right / populist bias that cut across the Zionist issue. After all, most evangelicals are pro-Israel to begin with. ... Steve Bannon is such a poisonous figure that Republicans are either keeping quiet or lashing out at Bannon’s appointment — nobody is really doing any congratulating. Why would he choose someone who specializes in targeting white nationalists through propaganda as his chief strategist and top advisor? Well, as we saw with Hitler and Goebbels (yes, I just broke “Godwin’s law,” but I’m sorry, this shit applies here, clearly), if you are intending to lie to the nation, you need someone close to your side, who has intimate knowledge of your affairs and the message you want to send, who is really, really good at spreading disinformation. You need to underline his message as the truth and the other messages as lies. It’s not just me, either. Back in February Glenn Beck was saying that Steve Bannon was gunning to be Donald Trump’s Goebbels. Beck’s argument is that he was serving in this position during Trump’s campaign as editor of Breitbart. And now Donald Trump literally just gave him the job formally. As Beck said in February: By taking orders from a political candidate and reworking your entire site to promote the lies of a specific candidate without any kind of truth behind these things, and just spinning all of–doing what you’ve [Bannon] done to Breitbart (and anybody who reads Breitbart knows exactly what’s going on). If that is what your idea of being Roger Ailes is, you are so sadly mistaken. That doesn’t make you Roger Ailes. That makes you Goebbels. So, let’s leave it at that. And you’ll hear many on the left saying the same thing — but even Glenn Beck, who is no liberal, sees this clearly. This is not a drill folks. This is the real deal. And on the other side, the white nationalists are beside themselves. One states: Stephen Bannon: racist, anti-homo, anti-immigrant, anti-jewish, anti-establishment. Declared war on (((Paul Ryan))) Sounds perfect. Muhahahaha. The man who will have Trump’s ear more than anyone else. Being anti-jewish is not illegal. Nothing you dirty stinking jews can do to keep him out. Former employee Kurt Burdella, who used to be Breitbart’s spokesperson and is also a conservative, states this in March 2016 about Bannon’s conference calls at Breitbart: “If anyone sat there and listened to that call, you’d think that you were attending a white supremacist rally,” said Bardella, citing what he called Bannon’s “nationalism and hatred for immigrants, people coming into this country to try to get a better life for themselves.” “This is someone who has a very low moral compass,” he said of Bannon, “and the idea that this is the type of person that Donald Trump, as the Republican nominee, as president, would have closest to him is very disturbing.” This is it, guys. Goebbels, similarly, was a minister of disinformation for white nationalists, with disturbing results. The lesson we learned there MUST keep us vigilant. In the news, you may see that Trump is attempting to play nice for now, and think it’s not that bad. But there are signals that this is situational — that he’s attempting to ease into the presidency. As he stated in his 60 minutes interview last Friday: You know, I’ll conduct myself– in a very good manner, but depends on what the situation is, sometimes you have to be rougher. ...http://www.patheos.com/blogs/barrie...e-bannon-is-confusing-look-up-joseph-goebbels Similar to the Apostle Paul's obfuscations, Bannon is now qualifying his 'nationalism' as being one of an "economic nationalist". But he and Trump were not above giving the coy wink (and so much more) to the race nationalists while pretending to distance themselves to the MSM (who were quite selective in their criticism of The Donald). In my opinion, in reality Trump, and likely Bannon, are truly ecumenical ethnicists and they were / are playing the white nationalists and the wider "alt-right" populists as Trump Chumps. ... Bannon also rejected the label of “white nationalist,” as some on the left have described him. “I’m an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy. And I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world, have said repeatedly strong nations make great neighbors. I’ve also said repeatedly that the ethno-nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I’ve never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism,” he told Strassel. ... http://www.politico.com/story/2016/11/steve-bannon-media-231663 I'm certainly not going out on a limb to re-iterate that the main dialectic today is indeed economic based nationalism versus globalism (layered on top of such as ethnic nationalism). And here Trump may likely attempt to demonstrate that he is willing to brutally roll back the powerful economic inertia of Free Trade forces, but I see that in one fashion or other he will lead us over a cliff like Hitler did with his race nationalists. That was the whole point. And along the entire course, the alliance of defense contractors, their investors, and Trump's government will be laughing all the way to the bank (the classic economic definition of Fascism). In pulling this off, Trump will need his highly skilled Minister of Propaganda. Nothing new here though, just look what Dubya did with 9/11, and his father did with the October Surprise. Snooze.
