Quotes From Steve Bannon Show Why His New Role Is Terrifying Americans

While thousands of Americans are still wrapping their heads around a Trump presidency, Steve Bannon’s appointment as chief strategist is even more concerning.

Donald Trump’s recent election as the 45th president of the United States has been a big blow to the country and its people.

What’s even worse is that the president-elect has appointed his presidential campaign CEO and notorious white nationalist, Steve Bannon, his chief strategist, which is understandably causing an uproar.

It is indeed terrifying that a white supremacist like Bannon could occupy such an important position in the White House. On numerous occasions, the media executive has made some very offensive and racist statements, aptly depicting what the Trump presidency might look like.


Bannon, who is the executive chair of the conservative Breitbart News, has approved the publishing of many questionable and controversial headlines.

On women and sexism:

“There’s no hiring bias against women in tech. They just suck at interviews,” one Breitbart headline read.

“The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off,” was another outrageous title.

“That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women," Bannon said of the women’s equality movement.

“Birth control makes women unattractive and crazy,” was just another one.

On Jews:

The known anti-Semite also didn’t want his kids to go to school with Jews. His ex-wife alleged that Bannon made a number of anti-Semitic remarks while choosing schools for his daughters.

Apparently, he didn’t like the way Jews raise their kids to be “whiney brats,” and thus didn’t want his children to attend school with them.

On the LGBT community:

Following the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida, an article on the news website was insensitively titled, “After the Pulse club massacre, it’s time for gays to come home to Republican Party.”

Earlier in 2011, the alt-right businessman said the progressive narrative was focused around victimhood.

“They’re either a victim of race. They’re victim of their sexual preference. They’re a victim of gender. All about victimhood and the United States is the great oppressor, not the great liberator,” Bannon boasted.

There is no end to Bannon’s cocky, politically incorrect, offensive statements, and one cannot help but be terrified of what Donald Trump as president and Steve Bannon as chief strategist might bring in the future.
