Protest against Steve Bannon organized in November 2016 by American Jewish activist group If Not Now
The #FireBannon movement has been around from the beginning of President Trump’s tenure, but it has been amping up in a clearly-coordinated effort since 20-year-old James Alex Fields Jr., an admirer of Hitler who had a history of violence and was diagnosed with schizophrenia, plowed into radical left wing activists in Charlottesville over the weekend, killing one and injuring many others.
Just one illustration of this coordination comes from the guiding force of the Black Lives Matter Movement – the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, who wrote on August 14 as one of their “tasks as revolutionaries” in the wake of Charlottesville:
“People should try and organize systematic calling of politicians from both parties at the national and at the state level and get them to speak out publically against white supremacists in the White House, especially Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller and Sebastian Gorka. Maybe Sessions, too.”
Today, it has been reported that they got what they wanted.
This popped up today at the Daily Kos:

Notice the language. Referring to Steve Bannon as a “white supremacist” is reminiscent of referring to critics of President Obama as racist. The irony is that the false narratives employed to smear Steve Bannon has evidently resonated with some, sadly.
This is a screenshot of literally the first tweets this author saw after putting in the #FireBannon hashtag. Clearly, there is a trend.

Journalist Sara Carter tweeted that Bannon resigned two weeks ago, but either way, Bannon is out and McMaster is still in.
Steve Bannon just told me he resigned from the White House two weeks ago @POTUS#Bannon
Before President Trump was even inaugurated. In November 2016: U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono in Washington D.C. with Democratic colleagues, Sen. Jeff Merkley of Oregon, Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts and Sen.-elect Chris Van Hollen of Maryland that included a sign that read: “Fire Bannon.”
As mentioned previously, the #FireBannon movement started before President Trump stepped foot in the White House. Continue reading →
Remember, this is not about race. This is about creating chaos. This is about using divisive “issues” (basically, badly constructed straw men) to drive wedges between artificially identified “segments” of society.
Divide and conquer. It’s about the revolution. Can’t bring about the revolution while people still have a cohesive society. Must have chaos to bring it down.
Then the “revolution” can install whatever totalitarian regime they have in mind.
If you zero in on this “race” thing, you’ve already been had.
Keep your eyes clear. Realize that all the sound and fury you’re hearing and seeing is cover for the rending of society.
Reject them. The merchants of chaos haven’t had a new idea in a hundred years. They’re gonna call you names. It doesn’t matter. Give them nothing to hold onto. Oh, and discover their crimes. There are always crimes. Shine bright lights on their crimes.
They believe their “time has come.” I believe they’re two generations too early.
Reject the chaos. Create your own certainty and serenity. Give them nothing.
President Trump predicted this and he wasn’t the only one. I did and so did many other pundits. The communists, radicals and leftists never intended to stop at taking down Confederate statues. Their real target was the Founding Fathers and destroying the heritage and history of this country. It’s what communists do. They want to destroy the Constitution and rewrite our history and propagandic media outlets such as CNN are helping to push their agenda.
CNN political commentator Angela Rye either doesn’t know history at all or is just a racist, bigoted liar. It’s true that the Founding Fathers owned slaves. Thomas Jefferson for example had slaves who he wanted to free, but could not because he had debts. By law, he was prohibited from freeing them. George Washington’s family also owned slaves, but Washington did not approve of it either. In fact, they set up our Founding Documents the way they did with careful wording so that slavery would eventually be abolished. Look it up, that’s exactly what happened. I was never taught that everything we did as a nation was perfect, but I have read our real history and our nation is a great and good one. These people want to destroy that.
President Trump predicted that people will start going after statues of our slave-owning Founding Fathers after Confederate monuments are taken down and he couldn’t be more right.
On Thursday, CNN political commentator Angela Rye made an impassioned plea to remove all vestiges of slave owners around the United States, saying:
“I think that we have to get to the heart of the problem here, and the heart of the problem is the way in which many of us were taught American history. American history is not all glorious… George Washington was a slave owner and we need to call slave owners out for what they are, whether we think they were protecting American freedom or not, he wasn’t protecting my freedom.”
Rye added, “My ancestors weren’t deemed human beings to him. And so, to me, I don’t care if it’s a George Washington statue, or a Thomas Jefferson statue, or a Robert E. Lee statue, they all need to come down.”
When she was confronted with the idea that she was “feeding in to Steve Bannon’s and Donald Trump’s talking points,” Rye recoiled, saying she was “calling out white supremacy for what it is.”
No, these statues should not come down. They are reminders of our past and history. I don’t see these people calling for the statues of Robert Byrd to come down, or the Lenin statue in Seattle to be removed. They hate the Founding Fathers because they were white and if you get right down to it, the primary instigators in all this are communists, who want to rip the very fabric of this nation apart. Trump is not a racist or a white supremacist. What about black supremacy and racism? Because there is sure plenty of that here as well.
This woman is disingenuous. The violence she speaks of happened all right… but whites and other races faced it as well. The first legal slave owner in America was black. And there were many white indentured slaves in America. And you might want to speak to the Chinese about slavery as well. All of this has nothing to do with modern day America and we owe nothing to these people. This will probably become the norm now as a pastor in Chicago is calling for the same thing. And someone burned an Abraham Lincoln statue there yesterday. None of these people know the first thing about our history and what’s more, they don’t care. They just want to burn it all down. One last thing… George Washington united and gave birth to this country… the Civil War sought to tear it apart. It is idiotic to compare the two.
I will close with a quote from one of my favorite writers, Daniel Greenfield: “Civilizations are built on virtue. Without virtue, there is no civilization.” Reason and virtue are in short supply in America today and our Republic is in danger of falling. An SDS radical and communist once wrote: “The issue is never the issue. The issue is always the revolution.”
