Getting to know Breitbart and its chairman, Steve Bannon, better

Bannon's Breitbart is Trump's Fox News. This is the real story rather than the alt-right connection of Steve Bannon. It explains why a person with Bannon's elite background got involved with Breitbart and how it brought him to the White House. This was a well-executed plan.

This Is How Steve Bannon Sees The Entire World

The soon-to-be White House chief strategist laid out a global vision in a rare 2014 talk, one where he said racism in the far right gets “washed out” and called Vladimir Putin a kleptocrat. BuzzFeed News publishes the complete transcript for the first time.

What a lunatic. Does he see Americans fighting in the next Crusade? Maybe Europe will do that, with 6% of their population identified as Muslim or "tanned". In the US there are not enough Muslims to get excited about, so I guess they'll focus their attention on people of color or some other scapegoat.

Oh, and more 'flavors of capitalism' bullshit. He believes that asking "what would Jesus do?" will erase the incentive to exploit workers for their labour. Good luck with that.

"And, quite frankly, it’s the reason that the United States’ financial situation is so dire, particularly our balance sheet. We have virtually a hundred trillion dollars of unfunded liabilities. That is all because you’ve had this kind of crony capitalism in Washington, DC."
