“Bannon out at White House; presidency at risk”: That’s how the Drudge Report announced the departure of Steve Bannon, in ominous read lettering, too.
But in some ways, the scariest news on the same page reads: “Maxine Water accuses Ben Carson of being ‘white nationalist.’”
That’s the mania we’re in.
And it’s not just the violence on the street, and the mania in the media. What about in corporate boardrooms? What if Google won’t show your site on their search results, for political reasons? Who do you even complain to?
I think there was one hope in terms of fighting back, and that was Steve Bannon.
Many on the right don’t fight, but his fighting spirit is why Trump won.
I’m worried that with no Bannon in the White House, the odds of building the wall just fell.
So did the odds of extreme vetting of Muslim migrants, and cracking down on violent alt-left rioters.
Maybe Trump let Bannon go to appease the mob.
But the mob will keep on moving until the last one they come for is Trump himself...
NEXT: Joel Pollak, Senior Editor-at-Large for Breitbart News, joins me to further explore the repercussions of Bannon's departure.
THEN: Salim Mansur, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Western Ontario, comes on to talk about the media’s biased coverage of the violence in Charlottesville, and the state of freedom of speech in the West.
FINALLY: I read some of your messages to me about the intense week we've had at The Rebel. Thanks for your support and feedback.
And I'll repeat my promise to you:
We're going to keep fighting for freedom every day!
