The Libertarian blogger Willis V. Hart - who I've taken to calling "Hartbart" due to his consumption of Alt-Right media (he's a fan of the seriously racist Colin Flaherty) and defense of White Nationalist Steve Bannon (even though Willis voted for Gary Johnson and has mildly criticized Trump. When he isn't defending him) - authors yet another post defending Bannon (again claiming Bannon isn't an anti-semite).
|Willis Hart: On the Fact that one of the Key Pieces of Evidence that the Critics of Steve Bannon Are Using as Proof that He's an Anti-Semite Is that One of the Articles at Breitbart Has the Term, "Renegade Jew" in its Title.|
Yeah, that was a missive by David Horowitz, ONE OF THE MOST HARD-CORE ZIONISTS OF ALL TIME, and the object of the slur was William Kristol, not exactly a darling of the left. I mean, I get it that these leftist morons want to demonize everybody and anybody whose even tangentially related to Trump but maybe a quick Google search prior to the diarrhea flowing, I'm just saying. (2/1/2017 at 8:57pm).
Firstly, Bannon is the White House Chief Strategist and Willis considers him to only be "tangentially related to Trump"? WTF?
Secondly, I don't know about the "renegade Jew" article being a KEY piece of evidence, although it is noted by the author of the article Steve Bannon Racism Accusations: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know. But the author clearly credits David Horowitz as the author.
From the article...
|...David Horowitz, who wrote that article, attempted to defend it on the Breitbart site, saying, "In fact, neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart".|
Horowitz said he wrote the article after Kristol became a Never Trumper, saying, "Bill Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood". (11/21/2016 Heavy article by Jessica McBride).
But Bannon, as chairman of Breitbart, allowed the article to run. Because it called out Kristol for being a Never Trumper. And because he knew it would appeal to Breitbart's audience. Which is racist and antisemitic Alt-Righters.
|The SPLC defined the Alt-Right as "a loose set of far-right ideologies at the core of which is a belief that white identity is under attack through policies prioritizing multiculturalism, political correctness and social justice and must be preserved, usually through white-identified online communities and physical ethno-states".|
So, Steve Bannon just worked there? He didn't agree with the average Breitbart reader's belief that "white identity is under attack"? Even though "former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro said that... the alt-right is shot through with racism and anti-Semitism". And no matter that Breitbart is an organization engaged in a "full embrace of the alt-right" (also per Ben Shapiro. How To Get Away With White Supremacy In Trump's White House).
And Bannon's ex-wife lied when she said (in court filings pursuant to her divorce) that Bannon "said that he doesn't like Jews and that he doesn't like the way they raise their kids to be whiny brats and that he didn't want the girls going to school with Jews" (this comment in regards to an LA school Bannon's ex-wife said he didn't want his kids attending).
Poor Steven Bannon is being demonized according to the Hartster (there is "nuance" to Bannon's White Nationalism, Willis sez). Sure, I believe that... not at all.
|Adam Jentleson, the spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, expressed disgust at the news of Bannon's appointment. "It's easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of White Supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide", Jentleson wrote in a statement. "Bannon was the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center". (Steve Bannon runs an anti-Semitic website, is a misogynist and will be one of Donald Trump's senior advisers by Matthew Rozsa. Salon 11/14/2016).|
Bannon was the MAIN DRIVER in the transformation of Breitbart into a site that appeals to racists, bigots and antisemites... so you can NOT tell me that he does not share these views. And that Willis Hart continues to defend Bannon suggests to me that perhaps Willis (in part, at least) shares his Alt-Right views.
I mean, I have proven here that Willis is a misogynist, a racist, and a homophobe, so NO, it absolutely would not surprise me to find out he is an anti-semite as well. Especially given his love for this Bannon piece of shit.
BTW, WHY would Trump so closely associate himself with Bannon given Bannon's reputation as a White Nationalist? Because it's a shoutout to racists and anti-semites (whose vote Trump wanted). It was his way of signaling that he agrees with them (SWTD #347).
Finally, Willis mentions that David Horowitz is a Zionist... because (I presume) he thinks it's more proof that Bannon isn't an anti-semite (he wouldn't publish an article by a Zionist if he was). But the Alt-Right is down with Zionism. Because they believe (1) "the gathering of the Jews in Israel is a prerequisite for the 2nd Coming of Jesus [and] Christians should actively support a Jewish return to the Land of Israel", and (2) during end times "one third of Jews alive who have converted [to Christianity] will be spared" although the rest will perish (see also: The Jews in End Time Bible Prophecy).
That explains why Right-wing evangelicals are pro-Israel. Not because they love Israel or because they like Jews, but because they think they're going along with Biblical prophecy. And that 2/3 of Jews will die during Armageddon and the rest will convert to Christianity. So, sorry Willis, but Steve Bannon publishing an article by the Zionist David Horowitz is NOT proof that he isn't an anti-semite (How Steve Bannon and Breitbart News Can Be Pro-Israel — and Anti-Semitic at the Same Time).
