A Zionist For Steve Bannon

A local antagonist has on occasion tried to smear me by referring to me as a Zionist. Although, he has used other slurs, I never took offense at Zionist. Steve Bannon is currently being smeared by being labeled as an anti-Semite and a white supremacist, he is neither. These smears are the residual resentment about Trump winning the election. In this internet era, facebook is now examining what is becoming called fake news. It's all too easy to create a fake title, and now thousands, if not millions of people, believe it. In regard to another Trump associate, Kellyanne Conway, I have seen opposite titles for the same youtube. One title says watch her destroy Whoopie Goldberg. Another title says watch Whoopie destroy Conway. Both segments contained the same youtube. Often people don't even bother to watch the youtube, or read the article. They accept the title as gospel.  Not only are newspaper articles becoming passé, but now people only have time to scroll titles on their mobile devices.

Some readers prefer when this blogger sticks to local issues, like the parks and the NIZ.  I generally do see that as the niche that I best fill.  However, as an informed citizen blogger,  it is occasionally necessary to step outside that box.  As a Jew who sees no shortage of anti-semitism,  and Israel bashing,  I will defend those falsely accused.

I inadvertently published a draft of this post yesterday morning, for a minute or so.

It's quite simple. Bannon is white and conservative, and he loves his country. That's Obama's definition of a white nationalist. In Obama's America, 60 million of us are Stephen Bannon.

Mike,

This is just more of the same, slurs and slander all based on conveniently redefined words, words that used to have meanings that were "defined" are now tailored to be used to impugn the left's political opposition. They label their enemies what they please and use ugly smears to do it, why because they now believe, and have convinced a gullible public they control the meaning of words.

The Left always seeks after the next Goldstein to target their hate.

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions. - Saul Alinsky

Margaret Thatcher, one of my role models said: "If my critics saw me walking over the Thames they would say it was because I couldn't swim."

I expect President Trump and all of his cabinet to be criticized in the same manner by those who oppose him.

Sorry all you Bannon supporters......BIG FAIL. As head of Breitbart News the disgusting anti-Semitic/White Nationalist/fake news/conspiracy nonsense stories carried his byline. He proudly owns up to it, and takes none of it back. No one is making any of it up to slur him......the articles are all on public view.
