It’s going to be a long four years for liberals judging by the total freak out of the last few days. Instead of simply giving up the ghost and abandoning the race baiting that contributed mightily to Queen Hillary’s aborted coronation the loony left is tripling down on demagoguery. President-elect Trump’s naming of Steve Bannon as chief strategist has triggered the perpetually aggrieved moonbats who are howling like castrated dogs.
The former head of Breitbart News is a classic liberal bogeyman for the hugely popular website’s often scathing coverage of the decline of this once great county. He managed to help right the ship for Trump when Team Hillary was throwing everything and several kitchen sinks at him and then steered the ship to last week’s crushing repudiation of Obama, Hillary and the Dems.
And the left along with their media lackeys are losing it.
Just because Trump won the election doesn’t mean that anything different can be expected from the nexus of anti-Trump hatred at the Washington Post which is already promoting the diatribes of those who are calling for Bannon’s resignation:
President-elect Donald Trump’s decision to appoint Stephen Bannon as his chief strategist in the White House has drawn a sharp rebuke from political strategists who see in Bannon a controversial figure too closely associated with the “alt-right” movement, which white nationalists have embraced.
Bannon, who was the executive chairman of Breitbart News before joining the Trump campaign in August, will serve as chief strategist and senior counselor for Trump; that will give Bannon authority over the strategic direction of the White House. Bannon will assume a similar role to that of Karl Rove during George W. Bush’s administration and recently by longtime strategist John Podesta under President Obama. He and Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who will become White House chief of staff, will be among Trump’s top advisers.
The announcement has produced intense hand-wringing in Washington and sharp denunciations from political observers and strategists critical of Breitbart News’s close association with the alt-right, a fringe conservative movement saturated with racially insensitive rhetoric and elements of outright white nationalism.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a hate-watch group, has accused Breitbart of explicitly embracing ethno-nationalism. After Bannon’s elevation was announced, the law center tweeted several controversial stories written by Breitbart under Bannon’s control, including a piece published two weeks after a mass killing at a black church in Charleston, S.C., last year: “Hoist it high and proud: the confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage.”
“Stephen Bannon was the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,” the law center wrote via Twitter in its first statements on Bannon’s elevation. “Trump should rescind this hire. In his victory speech, Trump said he intended to be president for ‘all Americans.’ Bannon should go.”
And outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid just can’t keep his trap shut:
Assorted outbursts from the moonbat fever swamp:
Trump also named RNC boss Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff which has many wailing in outrage but this one has all the markings of a payback for Priebus refusing to throw Trump under the bus despite intense pressure but the Bush-Romney establishment.
If early reactions to Trump’s victory from the loony tunes left are an indication of what’s to come, now would a good time to invest in Thorazine futures.
