Seriously, it's a great interview. Watch all of Breitbart's interviews. He sees the world so clearly.
Why do I bring up Breitbart? Because back then, the mainstream media was hurling insults at Breitbart. The same repeated slurs of racism, anti-Semitic, etc. And nothing could be further from the truth. People close to him described him as such a kind soul. He knew the game the media played and happily used the same tactics against them. That's why the media hated him so much, he was better than they were at their own game. Now let's go with Steve Bannon.
Steve Bannon served in the navy for seven years as a surface warfare officer. He met Andrew Breitbart back in 2004. After Breitbart's passing in 2012, Bannon became executive chairman of Breitbart News. So we have a honorable vet that takes the helm of Breitbart. And based on my experiences with military vets, they are very upstanding people. Their humor can be coarse (wouldn't pass sensitivity training), but their actions can be very noble. And I view actions as way more important than words. If you only cared about words, politicians would be such upstanding citizens.
Breitbart just released an article
Alan Dershowitz, a staunch Democrat and emeritus law professor at Harvard University, is hitting back against the smears claiming White House appointee Steve Bannon is anti-Semitic, arguing it is "not legitimate to call somebody an anti-Semite because you might disagree with their policies."
"I think we have to be very careful before we accuse any particular individual of being an anti-Semite. The evidence certainly suggests that Mr. Bannon has very good relationships with individual Jews."
Joel Pollak (Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large) stated: “I have worked with Stephen K. Bannon, President-elect Donald Trump’s new chief strategist and senior counselor, for nearly six years at Breitbart News. I can say, without hesitation, that Steve is a friend of the Jewish people and a defender of Israel, as well as being a passionate American patriot and a great leader.”
Pollak pointed to his “credentials” to comment on the matter: “I am an Orthodox Jew, and I hold a Master of Arts degree in Jewish Studies. My thesis at the Isaac and Jesse Kaplan Centre at the University of Cape Town dealt with the troubled status of Jews in an increasingly anti-Israel, and anti-Semitic, post-apartheid South Africa. I believe myself to be a qualified judge of what is, and is not, anti-Semitic.”
So when I see the words, Bannon is a racist, anti-Semite Nazi, my reaction is simple
