Stephen K. Bannon Facts
  • Was a founding member of the board of Breitbart News, a far-right news, opinion and commentary website which, according to Philip Elliott and Zeke J. Miller of Time, has "pushed racist, sexist, xenophobic and anti-Semitic material into the vein of the alternative right". Breitbart News is a divisive right-wing opinion and news outlet, known for offensive headlines like “Bill Kristol: Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew,” “Trannies 49 Xs Higher HIV Rate,” and “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.” According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the site promotes racist, anti-Muslim, and anti-immigrant ideas, and it has been accused of white nationalism, a movement that opposes multiculturalism and believes in the supremacy of the white race.
  • His "ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well documented". Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke called Bannon's selection "excellent," and Peter Brimelow, who runs the white nationalist site VDARE, called it "amazing."
  • He said progressives vilify conservative women because they’re not "a bunch of dykes." During a 2011 radio interview, Bannon said women like Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann, and Palin threaten the progressive narrative. “That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England,” he said, referring to historic women’s colleges. “That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women.”
  • His ex-wife has accused him of being anti-Semitic. The same wife who accused Bannon of abuse said in 2007 court documents that he didn’t want their daughters to go to a particular school because of the number of Jewish students enrolled. "The biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend," she said in her 2007 statement, according to the New York Daily News. "He said that he doesn't like the way they raise their kids to be 'whiny brats' and that he didn't want the girls going to school with Jews."
  • Bannon's site Breitbart News has regularly attacked Planned Parenthood, going so far as to compare their work to the Holocaust. In an August 2015 article headlined “Planned Parenthood’s Body Count Under Cecile Richards is Up to Half a Holocaust,” the author writes that the women’s health organization, which provides a range of health services including abortions and which Trump has threatened to defund, has “comfortably surpassing Hitler according to its own annual reports. You have to admire the chutzpah, if you’ll forgive my terminology: Planned Parenthood has amassed a Third Reich-style death count completely legally.”
  • The Anti-Defamation League opposes Bannon's appointment. The ADL released a statement explaining why the group “strongly opposes” Bannon’s appointment.
  • Those from the left and the right have come out against Bannon holding the new role. A spokesperson for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid said in a statement: President-elect Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon as his top aide signals that white supremacists will be represented at the highest levels in Trump’s White House. It is easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of White Supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide. Bannon was ‘the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,’ according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Opinion

Really not much to say, other than that listed above. This guy is simply bad news, and scary to say the least. He has no business being in the White House, especially in such a high ranking, high profile position.

You would think at the very least Ivanka Trump, daughter of president Donald Trump, would have something to say about this guy serving as Chief Strategist. Not only did Ivanka marry Jared Kushner, an Orthodox Jew, but Ivanka herself took a year of Jewish religious study classes and then converted to also become an Orthodox Jew. They are raising their three kids Jewish. In addition, Donald Trump Jr., the eldest son of president Trump, is also married to a Jew, Vanessa Haydon.

Should be interesting to see how an antisemite plays out over the next few years working for a guy whose family has such a strong Jewish presence.
