Blog Editor Idiot Alert:
I have mistakenly said Ellison is taking the Minority Leadership spot being vacated by Senator Lying Harry Reid. In my idiocy to not fully understand what the Dems had in mind was in not realizing Keith Ellison is a Congressman from Minnesota and not a Senator. He is currently the Dem fav to take over the Chairmanship of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He would replace Donna Brazile caught trying to fix Crooked Hillary’s election debates who in turn replaced Rep. Debbie Wasserman Shultz who fixed a Crooked Hillary Clinton Primary victory over Socialist minded Senator Bernie Sanders. Leaving out my idiocy, this post still tells the truth about Steve Bannon and shows Rep. Keith Ellison as a person who snuggles up with Islamic terrorists and Radical Islam!
President-Elect Trump selected Steve Bannon as his Chief Strategist. The Left went cuckoo saying Bannon is a white supremacist Antisemite. AND YET in full hypocrisy-mode place Muslim Senator inline to replace lying Senator Reid as the Dem Party Leader in the Senate. Ellison’s associations with Jew-hating Islamic terrorists such as Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood expose the Dem hypocrisy.
Wikipedia (usually leaning a bit the Left) has a decent bio about Bannon introducing his current status relating to President-Elect Trump. Then goes into his personal very briefly, then his business life leading up to his Breitbart days, then to his involvement with the Trump campaign being sure to mention the vilification by Senator Liar Reid and Conservative-hating SPLC and then finishing with the label “Personal life”. Under “Personal life” you will discover Bannon has been married three times with bitter divorces and the ex-wives are the source of Antisemitic and domestic dispute accusations of which NONE was ever document by public disclosure or the courts which the Ex never showed up to follow through with domestic violence accusations.
Here are some excerpts from Wikipedia “Early live” and “Personal life”:
Stephen Kevin Bannon was born on November 27, 1953 in Norfolk, Virginia into a working-class, Irish Catholic, pro-Kennedy, pro-union family of Democrats. He graduated from Virginia Tech in 1976 and holds a master’s degree in National Security Studies from Georgetown University. In 1983, Bannon received an M.B.A. degree with honors from Harvard Business School.
Bannon was an officer in the United States Navy, serving on the destroyer USS Paul F. Foster as a Surface Warfare Officer in the Pacific Fleet and stateside as a special assistant to the Chief of Naval Operations at the Pentagon.
Bannon’s first marriage was to Cathleen Houff Jordan. They had a daughter, Maureen. Following their divorce, Bannon married former investment banker Mary Louise Piccard in April 1995. Their twin daughters were born three days later. After Piccard and Bannon divorced in 1997, Bannon married Diane Clohesy. That marriage also ended in divorce in 2009.
Bannon was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence, battery and dissuading a witness in early January 1996, after Piccard accused Bannon of domestic abuse. The charges were later dropped when his now ex-wife did not show up to court. Piccard also stated that Bannon had made antisemitic remarks about choice of schools, saying that he did not want to send his children to The Archer School for Girls because Jews raise their children to be “whiny brats”. Bannon’s spokesperson denied the accusation, noting that he had chosen to send both his children to the Archer School. Bannon’s association with the alt-right movement, along with his aforementioned alleged antisemitic remarks, have contributed to accusations of white nationalism from the Southern Poverty Law Center [Blog Editor: Wikipedia provides a description more applicable to the 60s Civil Rights movement when the SPLC was a force for good against actual hate-groups not too happy about equal rights for African-Americans. Today the SPLC considers Conservative values groups and Biblical morality groups as hate-groups as well. Look at a better picture of the SPLC- FBI Scrubbed SPLC as a Resource and Conservapedia SPLC Exposé] and other advocacy groups, commentators, and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid.

Christine Niles writing at the Catholic organization as the Church Militant (not exactly White Supremacist since those racist groups usually include Catholics in their vitriol), shows some of the Leftist defamation against Steve Bannon AND includes the defense by David Horowitz a Jewish Pro-Israel prolific writer:
Left becomes unhinged over Catholic chief strategist
Donald Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon as chief strategist in his cabinet is raising howls of protest from the liberal Left, with Dan Pfeiffer, ex-senior adviser to President Obama, issuing a tweet that read: “Nation exhales because white nationalist only gets second most influential job in White House.”
The Anti-Defamation League went one further, tarring Bannon with the racist/nationalist/anti-Semite brush. “It is a sad day when a man who presided over the premier website of the ‘alt-right’ — a loose-knit group of white nationalists and unabashed anti-Semites and racists — is slated to be a senior staff member in the ‘people’s house,'” the group’s statement read.
And the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) denounced the appointment as one that “sends the disturbing message that anti-Muslim conspiracy theories and white-nationalist ideology will be welcome in the White House.”
Huffington Post has perhaps the most inflammatory report, the front of the website showcasing Bannon under the headline “White Nationalist in the White House.” The magazine went on to claim Trump’s appointment is setting up “a civil war” in the administration.
David Horowitz, however, is dismissing the outrage. “The losers of the left have worked themselves into such a bizarre hysteria over the fact that they lost the White House that they have lost all connection to reality and are now hyping their most ludicrously paranoid fantasies,” he remarked.

Horowitz proceeds to argue how unfounded the “anti-Semite” charge is against Bannon. The one phrase the media have latched onto in order to prove Bannon’s so-called Jew hatred is the headline labeling Bill Kristol a “renegade Jew.”
The only problem? Bannon didn’t write the headline; Horowitz — a Jew — did.
I wrote the article when Kristol set out to lead the “Never Trump” movement, after Trump had secured the Republican nomination. I would write it again in a heartbeat. I would write it the same way and with the same headline. Bill Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).
Horowitz went on to vouch for Bannon’s character. “I have known Steve Bannon for many years. This is a good man. He does not have an Anti-Semitic bone in … READ THE REST (HYSTERICS OVER TRUMP APPOINTEE STEVE BANNON; By Christine Niles, M.St. (Oxon.), J.D.; ChurchMilitant.com; 11/14/16)
Evidently if you are a Conservative Patriot, a supporter of the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution and an America First kind-of-guy; the Left considers you a White Supremacist and a racist. Now that’s a load of hyperbolic horse manure.
My obvious displeasure for the Leftist character assassination of Steven Bannon is from a Robert Spencer article I found on The Counter Jihad Report which in turn got it from FrontPageMag.com. (undoubtedly both on the SPLC hate-groups list)

Steve Bannon and Keith Ellison: Do the Democrats Really Care About Anti-Semitism?
By Robert Spencer
Originally: Front Page Magazine
The Counter Jihad Report
When is anti-Semitism not anti-Semitism? When it comes from the Left, of course.
President-elect Trump has enraged the establishment media by choosing Steven K. Bannon as his chief strategist, because Bannon, they claim on the flimsiest of evidence, is a white supremacist and an anti-Semite. Meanwhile, that same media is hailing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) for announcing his candidacy for Chairman of the Democratic National Committee – despite Ellison’s very real links to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, two groups that are outdone by no one in anti-Semitism.
“A chorus of critics took to Twitter,” said the New York Times, “to lament what they said was a frightening normalization of the fringe views that Mr. Bannon promoted as the chairman of Breitbart News. The site has for years given voice to anti-Semitic, racist and white nationalist ideology.”
The evidence? Slim to none. As David Horowitz pointed out Monday, the source for the claim that Bannon is anti-Semitic is “a one sentence claim from an angry ex-wife in divorce court no less, that Bannon didn’t want their kids to go to school with Jews.” Horowitz noted in response that Bannon had wanted to produce a Horowitz biopic: “I find that particularly amusing since Bannon wanted to make a film to celebrate this Jew’s life.”
Horowitz also noted that CNN hit Bannon over “a headline at Breitbart.com calling Bill Kristol a ‘renegade Jew.’” Surely that proves Bannon’s anti-Semitism, right? Wrong. Said Horowitz: “In fact, neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart. And I wrote the headline: ‘Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew,’” because “Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).”
Joel B. Pollak, senior editor-at-large at Breitbart News and an Orthodox Jew, declared: “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.”
Meanwhile, the same Democrats who are howling about Bannon are applauding Ellison’s announcement that he is running for DNC Chair, despite the abundant evidence of Ellison’s links to anti-Semitic groups. Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.”
It gets worse. In 2008, Ellison accepted $13,350 from the Muslim American Society (MAS) to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca. The Muslim American Society is a Muslim Brotherhood organization: “In recent years, the U.S. Brotherhood operated under the name Muslim American Society, according to documents and interviews. One of the nation’s major Islamic groups, it was incorporated in Illinois in 1993 after a contentious debate among Brotherhood members.” That’s from the Chicago Tribune in 2004, in an article that is now carried on the Muslim Brotherhood’s English-language website, Ikhwanweb.
Also, the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) raised large amounts of for Ellison’s first campaign, and he has spoken at numerous CAIR events. Yet CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR officials have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups.
Hamas has declared: “Killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah.” Ellison has spoken before several groups that have ties to Hamas, and has accepted money from a Muslim Brotherhood group; Hamas styles itself the Muslim Brotherhood for Palestine. Does Keith Ellison also, then, think that “killing Jews is worship that draws us close to Allah”? No establishment media “journalist” would ever dream of asking him that question, but it’s a fair one: Hamas repeatedly demonstrates genuine and murderous anti-Semitism, and Ellison has repeatedly shown himself willing and even eager to associate himself with Hamas-linked groups.
That’s the real story of anti-Semitism in American politics this week. But the media propagandists are most certainly not going to pause in their hysteria over Trump and Bannon to take any notice of it. Their hypocrisy is obvious, their dishonesty unrelenting, and their moral authority absolutely nil.
