This is what they’re up to. Again:
Stephen K. Bannon, President Trump’s reclusive chief strategist and the intellectual force behind his nationalist agenda, said Thursday that the new administration is locked in an unending battle against the media and other globalist forces to “deconstruct” an outdated system of governance.
In his first public speaking appearance since Trump took office, Bannon made his comments alongside White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus at a gathering of conservative activists. They sought to prove that they are not rivals but partners in fighting on Trump’s behalf to transform Washington and the world order.
“They’re going to continue to fight,” Bannon said of the media, which he repeatedly described as “the opposition party,” and other forces he sees as standing in the president’s way. “If you think they are giving you your country back without a fight, you are sadly mistaken.”
Atop Trump’s agenda, Bannon said, was the “deconstruction of the administrative state” — meaning a system of taxes, regulations and trade pacts that the president and his advisers believe stymie economic growth and infringe upon one’s sovereignty.
“If you look at these Cabinet nominees, they were selected for a reason, and that is
deconstructiondestruction (EDITOR’s NOTE: THERE, FIXED THAT FOR YOU!),” Bannon said. He posited that Trump’s announcement withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership was “one of the most pivotal moments in modern American history.”
If you follow this sort of thing carefully, you know that Bannon is mostly full of shit, prone to hyperbole, self-flattery and puffery. (Like most career drunks, he is prone to grandiosity.) That does not mean he isn’t dangerous. He is telling the truth that the nominees were carefully chosen to blow things up, and he really does believe in making us over into a white Christian nation. (You know who else believed that, right?)
And after all, a habitual, slovenly drunk only has so many jobs for which he can bother to haul his ass out of bed in the morning. Oliver Cromwell-lite is probably the best he can hope for.
