aside Mr. Bannon Has Returned To His Alma Mater Breitbart News To Wage War
As we have all learned that the republican President Donald Trump’ chief strategist, Steve Bannon was ousted from the White House on August 18, 2017, whereupon, he returned to his former position as chairman of the media outlet Bretibart News. Mr. Bannon has become well known for his White nationalist’s racist viewpoints which were reflected in the media website that he helped create. He himself has described Breibart News has the go-to resource for White nationalists.
No sooner had Mr. Bannon resumed his old position, he started publicly promising to hold the president accountable if he deviates from the so-called Bannon plan.
Any attempt to depict Breitbart News as anything other than the White supremacists’ preferred news outlet with its penchant for “fake news” should be dispelled as per the below reminders.
Here is the rest of the story...
On November 14, 2016, Heather Saul of the Independent penned the following report, “Steve Bannon: Some of the worst Breitbart headlines published under Donald Trump’s chief strategist.”
“Headlines to emerge from the site have spoken to the sexism, racism, religious discrimination and xenophobia which exploded during such a polarizing US election.”
“Breitbart is now the most widely-read conservative site in America and it is also the site Mr Trump cited regularly throughout his campaign. The relationship between Breitbart and Mr Trump was mutually beneficial; Mr Trump gave repeated interviews to the site in the run-up to the election, driving up its traffic to a 124 per cent spike in 2016. At the same time, he had a platform which would rush to his defence when the next controversy arose.”
“With Bannon at the helm, content on the site has become increasingly contentious. Feminists and Muslims are routinely attacked. Women speaking out on issues such as harassment have been criticised, including in a piece by comment and tech writer Milo Yiannopoulos, now permanently banned from Twitter, which declared: “The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off.”
“Women are — and you won’t hear this anywhere else — screwing up the internet for men by invading every space we have online and ruining it with attention-seeking and a needy, demanding, touchy-feely form of modern feminism that quickly comes into conflict with men’s natural tendency to be boisterous, confrontational and delightfully autistic.“
“His piece adds: “Feminism never brings men and women together in equality. it drives the sexes apart through acrimony, constant suspicion and antagonism like ‘teach men not to rape’ and illogical generalities and conspiracy theories like the ‘patriarchy’.”
“God-fearing nutcases like me have long argued that birth control, like abortion (or “the murder of children,” if you prefer), is the work of the Devil,” he writes. “Like all things discouraged by the Bible, it leads only to misery and suffering — for young men as well as women.”
“Tossing out birth control isn’t just kinder to women, it may be the only way to save civilisation. Sorry, no offence, but it’s true. And hey! It’s what God wants, too.”
“Trannies whine about hilarious Bruce Jenner” deliberately misgendered Caitlyn Jenner after her transition. The article criticised the reaction to a billboard joking about the former Olympic athlete undergoing gender reassignment surgery.”
The way in which articles on the site have distorted Islam has proved particularly controversial. In one, “Political correctness protects Muslim rape culture”, the website blamed an apparent increase in reports of sexual assault in Europe on Muslims. “An epidemic of rape cases across Europe has police in the UK, Norway, Sweden, Germany and other nations worried,” it began. “But you won’t hear much about it in the US mainstream media because the epidemic is a byproduct of the influx into Europe of a million, mostly Muslim, migrants.”
