Steve Bannon: ‘I’m a Nationalist Not a Globalist’

President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon is causing a social media firestorm with his controversial commentary and projects. Let’s take a closer look at some of his past positions.

Donald Trump’s chief strategist rejects being categorized as a “white nationalist.”

“I’m not a white nationalist, I’m a nationalist. I’m an economic nationalist,” Stephen Bannon said in a rare interview with The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday. “The issue now is about Americans looking to not get fucked over. If [the Trump administration is able to] deliver we’ll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years. That’s what the Democrats missed, they were talking to these people with companies with a $9 billion market cap employing nine people. It’s not reality. They lost sight of what the world is about.”

Bannon, the former head of the conservative website Breitbart News, was promoted to a top slot in the President-elect’s White House earlier this week but the move has been widely criticized. Breitbart has trafficked in racist, sexist and anti-Semitic posts allegedly, and the idea of someone from the website working within the White House has outraged some.

“Darkness is good,” Bannon continued, arguing his opponents’ blindness works to his advantage. “Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power.”

    Where was the outrage from the press when there was the “knock out” game targeting white people? This was during Obama’s administration. Nothing from CNN, NBC, MSNBC, etc. My husband said look at the KKK coming out for Trump (he supported Hillary.) I asked him Farrakahn endorsing Obama. I asked him about the Black panthers endorsing Obama. I am a Black women who totally supports Donald Trump. There is no way he should be tied to these hate groups. Horrible lying press.

    By the way Steve Bannon is brilliant. The pictures of him in the press are horrible. They try to portray him as an extremist. They try to tie him to the “White Nationalist.” As you know this will not stop. We the people know the truth.
