Egad, the optics on agreeing with a bin Laden.  I wouldn't have thought it possible for 6 years ago for any serious political entity to interview her, let alone agree with her.  I guess the MAGAts are so far down the rabbit hole with fetus-powered lamps and drinking children's blood to realize how wrong it might be to throw your lot in with actual terrorists.

The only ideological differences between MAGA and al-Qaeda are the name they call the Abrahamic deity and what skin color they're comfortable with.

I should be surprised by this.  I'm not.

Well done, GOP.

"The reason this smells so bad is that there is all sorts of evidence he did not receive this on the merits."

Since when did Kushner receive anything based on merit.  People like him figure Kashoggi is dead and there's nothing they can do to bring him back to life. So why let that stand in the way to make $ millions.

Um, Noor, sitting there with your arms bare and your hair loose, you know you're displaying a lot of Western ideals that would GET YOU KILLED in your uncle's version of utopia, right?

Osama only wishes me as good at killing Americans as the Republican party these past few years.

The Bin Laden family was quite chummy with the Bush clan which will probably irk the maggots more than her relation to Osama.

Get my name outta your goddamned mouth.

You can't swing a dead cat in Riyadh without hitting a member of the Bin Laden family. It wouldn't be difficult to find one with stupid opinions (a Bin Laden family member not a dead cat, though no one ever thought to ask the dead cat).

Kinda funny how that whole relationship was swept under the rug for two decades, isn't it? I doubt any MAGAts are even aware of it.

The outspoken Trump supporter went on during her interview with Mr Bannon to pull another page from the MAGA classics, launching into an attack of the so-called "globalist" elites attending the conference in-person after a two-year hiatus as being responsible for the "steal of the 2020 election".

I'm guessing Randolph Hitler was unavailable so Osama's niece was a last minute substitute?

Wow. Just wow.

Imagine telling the Republican party post 9/11 that this is what they'd become. You'd be locked up.

GregInIndy: That entire convo: "The @&#%ing Jews, amirite?!?"


If you're trying to foment civil unrest and authoritarian power-grabs, going after the Jews is a tried-and-true tactic.  Bannon is a one-trick Nazi.

When the band gets that old, everybody only wants to hear the hits, and really that's all the band remembers anyway.

What the actual fark?

This is maddening. How can anyone think any of this is okay?!
 
2022-05-24 7:33:35 AM  
Osama's father had about 30 or 40 children, and most of them had large families, so there are probably at least a couple of hundred nieces and nephews.  Figures there'd be at least one nutty right-winger in the bunch.

The new graduating class of voters weren't born when 9/11 happened. I fear the implications of that, paired with this unseeming cooperation now. It's feeling very, very long game.

They forgave Reagan

Are we all that shocked they're setting up to forgive Bin Laden?

Remember when Bannon was held in contempt for ignoring a subpoena and indicted? Good times.

The wheels of justice really need to move a little faster when the person that was indicted is actively trying to overthrow the government while delaying going to trial.

They want to overthrow the government, in many cases killing people and even calling for a civil war to do it. They then want to install a state that removes all freedom on groups they don't like, establishes a state religion - and specifically an extremist sect of said religion, makes women be property, and makes being any form of LGBTQ if not a capital offense, at least a major crime. They also want to make sure public education is destroyed so they can stay in power in a new dark age.

How is this functionally different from the Taliban?

The Taliban was the government of Afghanistan from 1996-2002.

Then they weren't.

Now they are again.

So how is the Taliban different? They have intelligent strategies and logistics. Republicans just fling shiat and murder.

It's OK.  Bannon won't be seduced by the woman.  Supply side JC is right there next to him to get him to focus and get some of that sweet bin Ladin money from a deal with the family.  Kushner isn't the only one with sweet deals with the Saudis.

3,002 people lost their lives to acts directed by the Noor bin Laden's uncle, and Steve Bannon thinks it's high patriotic duty TO HAVE HIS NIECE PROVIDE THOUGHTS ON A MOVEMENT OF DIMWITTED FUCKS?

I'm legitimately seething with anger right now. I never thought that in 20 years political discourse would descend to a level where thoughts from ANYBODY in the bin Laden family would be called upon for any kind of rational discussion. Now I know where our new low is.

When I first heard about this lady, I actually figured that she was speaking up to distance herself, not jump in with both farking feet. Sometimes I wonder if there are any Hitler descendants who actually thi k he was a righteous dude. And then I tell myself that nobody is that stupid. Then this broad comes along.

Holy shiat, and she seems like she's trying to paint Osama as a really good guy, deep down, who just is misunderstood.

I forgot about this, but it cropped up in a book I read last night, but since here we are talking about arch-traitor Bannon it seemed relevant to bring it up, even at the death knell of the thread


"Then we had a long talk about his approach to politics. He never called himself a "populist" or an "American nationalist," as so many think of him today. "I'm a Leninist," Bannon proudly proclaimed.

Shocked, I asked him what he meant.

"Lenin," he answered, "wanted to destroy the state, and that's my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today's establishment." Bannon was employing Lenin's strategy for Tea Party populist goals"


He just wants to see the system burn, presumably so he can orchestrate the rise of a right wing, rather than leninist, system of autocracy and racism in its place. Don't let him.
