Nancy Pelosi: Steve Bannon’s a Dangerous ‘White Supremacist’

Post by Thorin on Thu Feb 02, 2017 11:04 pm

On Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi twice referred to Trump’s White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon as a “white supremacist.”

"What's making America less safe is to have a white supremacist named to the National Security Council as a permanent member, while the Chairman of the Joints Chiefs and the Director of National Intelligence are told, ‘Don't call us, we'll call you,’” Pelosi said at one Bannon-bashing instance during her weekly news conference.

Last weekend, news broke that President Trump had appointed Bannon (former head of the far-right, nationalist website Breitbart) to the National Security Council, while military and intelligence leaders were effectively downgraded. The move to elevate Bannon, a purely political adviser, was unusual to provoke outcry from even some prominent fellow Republicans.

BTW, nine out of every 10 Trump supporters are white.

Despite only six of every 10 Americans being white.

When you think about it, only one in four US citizens eligible, voted for Trump.

And on the basis of either false promises or (for the minority) racism.

I think its time for those two in four that did not vote, to stand up and be counted.

Its time for them to become vocally and politically involved.

Idea

Overall, some 46% of eligible US voters couldn't be bothered...

Yet another good reason why voting in federal/national elections should be compulsory..

The price of producing a genuine "democracy".
