Bannon's agenda is Trump's agenda. He's only gone because their fighting about who the real president is.
 
2017-08-20 10:02:57 AM  
shiat flows downhill.  So no.
 
2017-08-20 10:03:38 AM  
He was ousted after revealing that he didn't actually support racists; they were merely useful idiots.

edmo: Bannon's agenda is Trump's agenda. He's only gone because their fighting about who the real president is.


I don't even think they were fighting over who is president. They were fighting because it was joked that Bannon was the real president. Trump couldn't handle that.
 
2017-08-20 10:05:32 AM  
Difficulty:  Trump is still president
 
2017-08-20 10:06:09 AM  
I'm afraid, with Bannon gone, the White House is going to appear poorly organized and without principle.

Since Trump's agenda is usually based on who talked to him last, we'll have to wait and see what happens.

If the agenda suddenly shifts to banning abortion and opening state run conversion camps, we know that Pence is now pulling the strings.
 
2017-08-20 10:10:46 AM  
The answer is no. There should be no doubt to anyone with eyes that see and ears that hear that trump is a dyed in the wool racist. He isn't courting votes or 'looking the other way' about this shiat. He has a laundry list decades old that highlight what a racist bag of shiat he is.

BANNON'S FACIAL LESIONS PLAN WHITE HOUSE COMEBACK

Liver, colon polyps, ulcers form advisory council


Anus to play key role
 
2017-08-20 10:15:29 AM  
When Trump was elected, one of my first thoughts was that riot season was going to be bad.

Bannon had a strategy to exploit riot season for alt-right gain. Unfortunately for him, the idiot alt-right decided to make themselves the focus of everyone's hate.

This was the worst possible outcome for Bannon.  The Trump presidency he fantasized about has now failed. His alt-right ascendancy plan is in tatters.

I want to thank everyone on fark and in America who helped this happen. We are no longer on the darkest timeline.

/imagine the horror of BLM protests with slain cops, Sessions as AG, Trump as Pres, Bannon orchestrsting policy and response, both houses being Republican, and Fox news and all the right wong media frothing with hate
 
2017-08-20 10:17:30 AM  
The scary thing is Bannon may get more influence since you know Trump will read [or have read to him ]  everything he writes. Maybe via fox n fiends..
 
2017-08-20 10:19:42 AM  
I don't know. With him at Breitbart he can be more of the media mouthpiece that Trump has wanted.
 
2017-08-20 10:21:47 AM  
Bannon's agenda is the Republican party's agenda.
 
2017-08-20 10:21:48 AM  
It's too late.  He already spored.

I wouldn't say that just yet.  There's still a long way to go, although Bannon's departure may signal a turning point.

Bannon caught too much spotlight and now he's gone.  There can only be one star in that shiat show.

Bannon and Trump think that at least half of Americans are racists that would openly support the KKK if they were allowed to come out of the shadows. They felt this way because they felt that way and surrounded themselves with others who shared the same views. The wholesale rejection of the racists by this country has left both of them feeling betrayed by the majority of the population. Trump's Weeners to the Boston anti Nazi protesters was to call them police agitators on twitter before backtracking. Make no mistake, Trump feels betrayed and he will lash out like a child throwing a temper tantrum against those he feels betrayed him (the American people). This is going to get worse before it gets better.

We'll have to see.  They were blindly pro-Trump when their guy Bannon was running the show.  Now there's a lot of weeping from the fascist brigade because they know their biggest advocate was kicked out, and now Trump is surrounded by mostly military guys, with some establishment figures like  Mnuchin and Cohn still around.  Breitbart may well turn on the administration if they feel that it is becoming too establishment.  I think they're suspicious of that happening already.
 
2017-08-20 10:38:39 AM  
Again, Bannon wasn't a random pick and didn't "worm his way" into the white house.  He threw himself behind Trump because Trump was already a dyed-in-the-wool white supremacist long before anyone had even heard of Bannon.  Political movements buying politicians doesn't start with picking a politician at random and paying them to change views, it works by finding a politician who already agrees with you and putting money into getting them elected.

Bannon was never the origin of the administration's never-ending fusillade of white power rhetoric and policy, from day farking one that has always been Trump himself.  Don't get me wrong, Bannon's by far morally the worst individual person in the administration and it's good that he's out, but all this "questioning" whether "bannon's legacy" will continue is bullshiat almost on the level of actively playing cover-up for the administration's intentional alignment with terrorists.  These things aren't going to linger because of some sinister mark left by an overzealous administration official, they're going to "linger" because they were Trump's policies, and Trump is still president.

I still think Bannon's"ousting" was a political move, and that he is still gonna run the shiat show outside of the white house.

Sometime after this is all over, in light of who we have been applying it to, we all need to reevaluate the word "useful" and whether it means what we think it means.

It's also probably motivated by Kelly cleaning house.

Kelly probably told Trump to do it and he did. He's one of the easiest people to manipulate I've ever seen.

Well, Boston was a great choice for this. What's next? NYC? San Francisco? Portland?  Most of us are NOT racist shiatbags... nor do we want to be... though we do want to fight them and push them back to quietly believing their beliefs, knowing they'd be shamed if it got out.

Funny how there was no violence when the normal people outnumbered the Nazis something like 100:1.

46% of America saw nothing but "all Trump, all the time" news from the start of the primaries to the end of the general election and still thought Trump would make an acceptable president.  I'm having trouble seeing how far wrong they could be about about going the tiny bit further and wearing the sheets.

I really, really, reallydon't want to start seeing "Bannon: Miss Me Yet? YES" memes after it turns out that he was the one keeping Trump from invading North Korea or some crap like that.

Yet this administration has a long history of making me long for the days of idiots that I was wildly impatient to be rid of....

The only way I'll accept that gay conversion works is if Daddy Mike comes out and tells us that he was a recipient of the life changing treatment, which wouldn't make any sense as he's clearly the "affair" with the 14 year old babysitter type.

It'll be Iran.  Invading North Korea is like invading Panama- if you succeed nobody cares, if something goes bad you'll never hear the end of it.  Beating Iran, though, would be a real coup.
