Steve Bannon: “… all your Paul Ryan bullshit at the Heritage Foundation can’t win national elections.”

Hvis man ignorerer den patetiske indramning, så er det faktisk en yderst læseværdig artikel. Steve Bannon er længder foran massemediernes politiske analytikere, og så The Guardian såmænd godt kalde ham ‘far-right agitator’ i underrubrikken. Interview med Steve Bannon hos The Guardian – Steve Bannon: ‘We’ve turned the Republicans into a working-class party’.

“In an interview with the Guardian at his Capitol Hill townhouse, Bannon, who helped shape the party in Donald Trump’s image, argued that Republicans have to fight back against the ‘perfect casting’ of Democrats elected to Congress last year by boosting equivalents from their own ranks. …

‘We’ve turned the Republican party into a working-class party,’ said Bannon, relaxing at a table with an autographed photo of Trump behind him. ‘Now, interestingly, we don’t have any elected representatives who believe that, but that’s a legacy issue. We’ll get over that. We’ve got to find our AOCs.’

Ocasio-Cortez, a 30-year-old former bartender from New York, was elected to Congress last year and has built a huge social media following as a member of ‘the Squad’, a group of four progressive women of colour. Her eagerly sought presidential endorsement went to fellow progressive senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

The Democrats and their supporters have ‘better casting’, Bannon admitted. ‘They did an amazing job in 18. I keep saying I admire AOC. I think her ideology’s all fucked up, but I want her. I want to recruit bartenders. I don’t want to recruit any more lawyers. I want bartenders.

… In a second interview by phone last week, Bannon drew parallels with the British general election, in which Conservative Boris Johnson trounced Labour’s Jeremy Corbyn, accused of failing to stamp out antisemitism in the party. Johnson took a wrecking ball to a ‘red wall’ in traditional working-class areas, just as Trump broke through the ‘blue wall’ in midwestern states in the 2016 election.

‘I think it’s a victory for populism,’ Bannon said, ‘Obviously radical economic ideas and socialism and more government involvement, coupled with virulent antisemitism, is not a winning ticket. I believe the Democratic party here, particularly on the far left – the Squad, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders – should embrace the lessons because I don’t believe it was just Corbyn’s personality.’

… He added: ‘I think the Democrats, on whether it’s Green New Deal or healthcare for illegal aliens or whatever, ought to take the lessons of the working class. These are lifetime Labour members that voted for a Tory.’

Bannon regards Johnson as neither a nationalist nor a populist and likens the prime minister’s vision of Brexit to ‘Singapore-on-the-Thames’ – very different from the version hoped for by those who voted for him. Even so, Bannon argues that both the Conservatives and Republicans should aim to seize their traditional rivals’ territory by appealing to the working class.

Critics say Bannon is an ardent nationalist… He suggests his desire to transform the Republican party as a working-class force stems from a worldview that pitches the elites against the so-called ‘deplorables’, a term based on a comment by Hillary Clinton that was widely seen as an insult to long-disparaged and forgotten people.

My whole theory on the right is that we if we want capitalism to survive, we need to make people capitalist. The problem is they’re not capitalists. We have oligarchs and serfs. That system is not going to survive. I tell the donors, you may hate me, but all your Paul Ryan bullshit at the Heritage Foundation can’t win national elections. He can’t win Wisconsin, OK? Donald Trump can.‘ …

Recalling the Brexit referendum of 2016, Bannon said: ‘As soon as we won in London at the end of June, I kept saying this is a lock for Trump, we’ve just got to drive the same topics. That’s why, when I took over the campaign, it was let’s get back to some basics: stop mass illegal immigration, limit legal immigration, protect your workers. Why do you think Trump today is at 34% approval rating in the Emerson polls among blacks and 36% among Hispanics? He’s going to get 20% of the black vote and here’s why: everybody’s working.‘ …

Bannon appears untroubled by having helped put a man endorsed by white nationalists in the Oval Office. ‘Look, this is what drives me nuts about the left. All immigration is to flood the zone with cheap labour, and the reason is because the elites don’t give a fuck about African Americans and the Hispanic working class. They don’t care about the white working class either. You’re just a commodity.

‘So they have unlimited labour and they’re paying you nine bucks an hour. ‘Let more guys in and, by the way, it’s bigger markets.’ It destroys the working class. That’s what we’ve got to protect. Once we show working-class people of every ethnicity and race that you being a citizen you get a special deal, you get that realignment.‘”

  1. Der er så mange formelle og uformelle omkostninger ved masseindvandring som, der ikke tales om. Prof i indvandre økonomi på Harvard, George Borjas sagde til kongressen i 2016, at indvadringen i USA var det største omfordelingsprogram mellem klasser i USA hvor det kun var overklassen, som havde gavn af det. Det er lidt en “gøre indtægten privat og omkostninger til et samfundsanliggende logik” Hans beregninger viser, at 500.mia dollars/3500.mia kr bliver omfordelt mellem klasser i USA om året. Indvandrerne gør ikke kagen meget større men flere skal deles om den, som er. Det sker gennnem en lavere mindsteløn og højere omkostninger til f.eks bolig. Det er de omkostninger som kan sættes tal på og så kommer omkostninger som, at leve i et lavtillidssamfund, bruge en masse tid på, at udgå multikultur osv.https://dailycaller.com/2016/03/16/harvard-economist-immigration-costs-us-workers-500-billion-a-year-video/

  2. Bannon siger jo det åbenlyse. Venstrefløjen er hamrende ligeglad med arbejderklassen. Venstrefløjen er grundlæggende styret af mennesker, der ønsker magt, og så bruger de venstrefløjens floskler, som skal få dem til at stå i et næstekærligt skær. Det samme med medierne. De arbejder på at nedbryde det samfund, som de lever af under dække af at fremme positive dagsordener som mangfoldighed og rummelighed. Den dag, hvor det multikulturelle samfund er en realitet, kan journalister godt dreje nøglen om, for alternativet til det vestlige/kristne samfund er ikke multikultur, men diktatur og undertrykkelse, for tanken om frihed findes kun i den vestlige kultur. Det vil venstrefløjen og den såkaldte elite ikke erkende, fordi de hader kristendommen. Den egentlige kamp i dag står mellem den kristne kultur og så undertrykkerne på venstrefløjen og islam og den såkaldte elite og så også alle de mennesker på højrefløjen, som er dovne og tror, at økonomi uden ånd er tilstrækkeligt for mennesker.

  3. “Obviously radical economic ideas and socialism and more government involvement, coupled with virulent antisemitism, is not a winning ticket”, men det var det desværre stadig herhjemme ved sidste folketingsvalg herhjemme, hvor der blev dannet en rød regering med basis i både socialister, kommunister og antisemitter.

    Vi er altid 10-15 år efter trenden i USA, hvor det meste kommer fra også jazz og rock’n’roll. Så her på Uriasposten må vi have tålmodighed 5-10 år endnu før vi – sammen med Steve Bannon – kan danse til rock’n’roll med en dansk Donald Trump som bandets forsanger! :-)

  4. Steve Bannon er strategen over alle strateger. Han peger ikke på problemerne, han planter hele næven lige i bullseye hver gang.

    Jeg forstår godt at han og Trumps gik hver til sit – Der kan kun være en Alfahan i en flok. Siden har det vist sig at de alligevel kører et godt parløb.

    Steve Bannon har kørt en langsigtet kampagne i resten af Vesten i form af oplysning med råd og vejledning til højrefløjs-aktivister, dem er der desværre for få af for nuværende, men de samler momentum så vi har trods alt noget at se frem til og kæmpe for.

  5. Steve Bannon: “We’ve turned the Republican party into a working-class party,” – Var det ikke nogenlunde den recept Pia Kjærsgaard fulgte i alle årene? – Indtil den politisk retarderede Thulesen Dahl ødelagde konceptet!?
