President-elect Donald Trump has begun to assemble the cabinet which will help him lead the nation once he takes the oath of office. Stephen Bannon, the head honcho at the abysmally rotten Conservative website “Breitbart”, was originally Trump’s campaign CEO and has now been named as Trump’s top White House adviser. Now, an audio recording of Bannon disrespecting women has come to light which helps to explain why he and Trump are so cozy with one another, as they are cut from the same misogynistic cloth.
During a radio interview on Political Vindication Radio in 2011, which was not well received at the time, Bannon attempted to explain using hateful rhetoric why women being liberated from being barefoot in the kitchen is a bad thing. He cited such pinnacles of the conservative movement like Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter to make his point. Bannon said:
These women cut to the heart of the progressive narrative. That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women.
Indeed, progressive-minded women must be “dykes.” The public has become familiar with Bannon over the course of the election, and numerous dirty aspects of his past were uncovered. Bannon was accused by his now ex-wife of domestic abuse in 1996 of grabbing her by the neck during an argument about money. The charges, which included intimidating a witness, were ultimately dropped after he was arrested. However, considering Bannon’s views on women with whom he disagrees, it does paint a clearer picture of the type of man he is. Bannon is someone who clearly does not believe women are equal to men. He also said during the interview that progressive women play the blame game in lieu of taking responsibility for themselves:
They’re either a victim of race. They’re victim of their sexual preference. They’re a victim of gender. All about victimhood and the United States is the great oppressor, not the great liberator.
Bannon speaking of the liberation of women is too thick with hypocrisy to attempt to choke down. He has proved himself to be a person who has no interest in ensuring women receive fair treatment. This is evidenced by the various disgusting anti-woman articles which he oversaw on Breitbart which include, “Would You Rather Your Child Had Feminism or Cancer?” and “Birth Control Makes Women Unattractive and Crazy.” This comes from a man who will have unlimited access to the President of the United States, and that is truly frightening.
