Steve Bannon, Donald Trump’s chief strategist and former chairman of Breitbart News, has been a media target ever since he joined the Trump campaign during the summer of 2016.
The media has thrown everything in the book at him and in typical fashion, the left has attempted to label Bannon as a racist, sexist, antisemitic, monster.
You expect that kind of treatment from bloggers and pundits but even sitting members of Congress have joined in on the slander.
Here is what Nancy Pelosi had to say about Bannon today.
From The Daily Mail:
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi twice called President Donald Trump‘s chief strategist Steve Bannon a ‘white supremacist’ during her weekly Capitol Hill press conference today.
‘What’s making America less safe is to have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council as a permanent member, while the chairman of the Joint Chiefs and the Director of National Intelligence are told, “Donald call us, we’ll call you,”‘ the Democratic leader said.
Unfortunately for Pelosi, there is absolutely no merit to the claim that Steve Bannon is a white supremacist.
In fact, he has been defended by many people who have worked closely with him.
Here’s more from Sarah Palin…
“A latest press target is a man who’s been part of a team that just made history,” Palin wrote. “Trump campaign CEO, Steve Bannon, is particularly bright on the Leftist media’s radar because they can not handle the fact he’s also from their arena but has been enormously more influential than his peers. ‘How dare one of our own succeed outside our herd,’ is no doubt a favorite whine in DC today.”
The Steve Bannon I know is a passionate defender of freedom and he lives by example. He’s a patriot; a military veteran and proud Army dad. Bannon’s talents are on display in many venues, my favorite being his production of the documentary “The Undefeated.”
Please, watch the film “The Undefeated.” Bannon understood the media’s coverage of the 2008 election defined “injustice” and “double standard.” More importantly, he did something about it. I’ll be forever grateful, as will other Commonsense Conservatives who will not stand for the press’s politics of personal destruction. A masterful work of wrecking the media’s biased filter, Bannon captured truth. He’ll do the same as we unite around our 45th President, Donald J. Trump.
Joel Pollak, from Breitbart, also wrote a passionate defense of Bannon when accusations of anti-Semitism were being thrown around by the media to smear him.
It defies logic that a man who was a close friend, confidant, and adviser to the late Andrew Breitbart — a proud Jew — could have any negative feelings towards Jews. As I can testify from years of work together with Steve in close quarters, the opposite is the case: Steve is outraged by antisemitism. If anything, he is overly sensitive about it, and often takes offense on Jews’ behalf.
Steve cares deeply about the fate of Jewish communities in America and throughout the world, a fact that is reflected in Breitbart News’ daily coverage. It was in that spirit that Steve joined Breitbart News CEO Larry Solov (also Jewish) in launching Breitbart Jerusalem last year, fulfilling Andrew’s dream of opening a bureau in Israel specifically to cover the region from an unabashedly Zionist perspective.
Make no mistake.
This is nothing more than a media smear that has now been given legs by Nancy Pelosi who clearly is trying to delegitimize Donald Trump however she can. Even if it means pushing a lie.
