How Steve Bannon’s far-right ‘Movement’ stalled in Europe

How Steve Bannon’s far-right ‘Movement’ stalled in Europe


The financial crisis of 2008 was brought on
by the engineering, financial, scientific, managerial, cultural elite, that go to the world economic forum
every year, and preach that you’re racist, and you’re nativist
and you’re xenophobes. I thought your speech
was a textbook populist speech, if you wanted the sort of definition of it,
you had it to a tee. Did Paul Lewis just give
me a compliment? It’s intended as an accurate
description of what you did. Why do you say that? Well, because in framing it as a battle
between the pure people and the nefarious corrupt elite,
you were saying that you … Yes. …. represent the people like no one else
does. And you are suggesting
that there is a singular popular will. And in all of those things,
that’s sort of populism incarnate. Yes. I would say that’s correct. But here’s the thing, I come
from a family of little guys, right? I got a dad who’s 97,
still lives in the same house we’ve lived in for 50 or 60 years. I’m not sure that’s why the speech
was populist though, I think it’s more strategic than that. What do you mean? I think you are effective at using
that discourse because you understand its power. What’s the power of it? I think the power of it comes
from the fact that we’ve reached a point in history where people’s frustrations at elites
are justified. OK, I’ll agree with that. Rightwing populists are on the rise
across Europe. Their parties are gaining ground in Germany,
Hungary, Sweden, Italy and France. And with European parliamentary elections
approaching, they’re being offered help,
from a wealthy American. Your children are going to be poor
and your grandchildren are going to be paupers. He’s the ex-Goldman Sachs banker
who helped elect Donald Trump. Everything from here on in,
is going to be hard, and nasty, and ugly. He’s been exiled from the White House,
and ousted from his far-right website Breitbart. Now Steve Bannon is running a campaign machine
to boost Europe’s far right, he’s calling it: the Movement. Bannon’s project was hatched
in this London hotel in July, when he convened a meeting
with figures from across the far right. Two days later,
he told me his plan. President Trump’s former adviser
has announced plans to spark a rightwing revolution in Europe. (News presenter voice) He’s getting wall to wall coverage, but how much of a threat
does Bannon really pose to Europe? He invited me to Venice,
to meet the managing director of the Movement. The Belgian politician,
Mischaël Modrikamen. Hey, how’re you doing? Good. Bonjour, nice to meet you. First thing is that we have to liaise,
we have to liaise, because the opponents, globalist force,
are just unified already. We’re just a bit isolated, or we feel isolated,
everybody in its own country. Usually people talk about a movement,
and it’s a people-led, grassroots, ground-up thing, this is different,
this is top-down. You’re being quite pejorative. In what way? You’re being quite pejorative, because the
Movement … He had this thing called the Movement, I was very fortunate, right?
To come in contact, and over time it may metastasise
into something different. Right now, when Napoleon,
to his marshals, said ‘When you set out to take Vienna,
take Vienna’. May 19 is Vienna.
That’s all that matters. OK. Mischaël, just tell me, your party,
I forgot the name … The People’s party. The People’s party. How many members do you have? We have approximately 5,000 members,
but it’s small, Wallonia … 5,000 members to date. That’s not … I know it’s Belgium,
but it’s not a particularly big party. Membership in Belgium is not that much, but … How many members of the European
parliament do you have? None. None? I was intrigued that Bannon
had chosen Modrikamen to run the operation, which was based at his home in Brussels. Welcome, how are things? This is quite some place you have. HQ of the Movement. This is going to be mission control is it? Yeah. Indeed. You specially commissioned this picture. Yeah. And to put it exactly here. So, it gives a feeling of the,
the spirit of this mansion, indeed. He would have been part of the Movement,
I have no doubt about it. You think Churchill would have wanted
to do business with Steve Bannon? Yeah. This is the mansion that Bannon and Modrikamen
call their war room, providing far-right parties help with polling,
data analytics and social media. Mischaël wanted me to see a letter
that he sent to Trump in 2016. Have a look. This is you setting out why you think there
should be a movement beyond America’s shores. Exactly. And what did they do with this? Nothing at that time,
we planted the seeds, took a year and a half, you know,
to come to fruition. So, 18 months later, probably not coincidentally
after Steve Bannon was exiled from the White House and chucked out of Breitbart,
he came to Europe to enact this vision basically. Exactly. Merci, Jacques. Cheers, guys. You know some people say
what’s happening with politics right now, has echoes of the 1930s. And I just want you to sort of reflect upon
how you would feel, if you had a hand in something
that leads in that direction. They are just trying to bring fear,
and to smear the Movement, smear the Movement by just claiming analogies
to the 30s and so on. I believe this will be the dividing line of
western politics for the next 20, 30, 40 years, will be really the line of battle
between these two visions. On the one side the globalist approach,
who is the Macron, Merkel, Obama style, UN style. And the other side? And the other side, all the sovereignists,
Salvini, Orban, Trump of course, and basically our Movement. Let me just ask you this,
you think history will judge you well for being on the side of Trump, Orban and Salvini? Yes, yes because it’s not that we are
on the side of Orban, Salvini or Trump. It’s that we believe we are
on the side of the ordinary guy. Modrikamen left me with questions about
who Bannon was doing business with. Several far-right parties were expressing
doubts about the Movement, but I wanted to meet a politician open
to the idea of collaborating. Filip Dewinter,
a leading member of the far-right Flemish party, Vlaams Belang. Tell me about the meeting you had in London
with Steve Bannon. Do you like him as a person? Yes, I do, I had the opportunity
to speak with him, I was sitting next to him for three hours
and he was a very clever man, he’s also a very funny guy,
really sympathetic, but he’s an American of course, he’s not an European. But also because he has a lot of experience. How did he describe the mission
here in Europe? His mission is quite simple,
to unify the rightwing patriotic movements in Europe. That’s it. We want an immigration stop in our country and certainly in the big cities. No immigration at all? No. I think we should stop Islamic immigration
to Europe because it’s causing a lot of troubles, a lot of problems. When you say Islamic immigration,
you mean immigration to Europe to people who are Muslims? Immigration coming from Muslim countries. Did you have that policy before Trump? Because that was the famous policy
during the campaign … We already had it before Trump. Trump copied us,
not the other way around. Dewinter spoke about his affinity with Trump
in this speech to Greece’s neo-Nazi party, Golden Dawn. They want to abolish the Christian, white,
and western identity of Europe, and European liberals want to install
a sort of global citizenship, and a one-world culture. The future is ours, the future is to the Trumps,
and to the Putins, to the Orbáns of this world. When you gave the speech
there was a lot of applause in the room, with Golden Dawn supporters,
who were supporting your opinions, and one of the things that you said was that
‘the left parties want to abolish the Christian, white and western identity’. That’s true. Can you explain to me what
the white part of that is? What’s a ‘white identity’? It’s about our way of life,
it’s about our values, it’s about our civilisation. But ‘white’,
just explain the ‘white’ element. Why are you so fixed on the word ‘white’? Well I didn’t say it, you did. Yes, but why are you so fixed,
why are you not fixed on Christian values or on western civilisation, or on the word
European? Because white would denote racism. Is white racism? If you talk about white values … I’m a white person, does that make me a
racist? If you think your values are superior
to another race’s values … Our values, our way of life is superior,
to other ways of life, yes. I think that our values are superior to Islamic
totalitarianism. But Islam is a religion, and white is a … No, Islam is a political ideology. OK, well, we’ll disagree on that,
but certainly white is a racial categorisation, right? But we don’t have to disagree … … but you can have white Muslims. In our country, journalists ask questions. I disagree with politicians,
not with journalists, OK? I’m not here to debate with you,
you asked me a question, I gave an answer. That’s what a journalist should do. Not to disagree or to agree with a politician. I don’t know,
that’s the way it works in my country. I think this is the end of the interview,
thank you very much. I’m happy to talk to you
about today and your speech … … and I’m going now to the rally. You don’t want to continue the questions? If far-right populists seem
emboldened right now, they have reason to be. Their parties have gained ground in Sweden,
Denmark, Germany and France and they have cabinet seats in Norway, Finland,
Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria and Greece. Their most recent entry into government, Italy, where the dominant force
in politics right now is interior minister Matteo Salvini. The leader of the far-right League,
Salvini came to power in a rightwing alliance that included the female leader
of a party called Brothers of Italy. Bannon was meeting Meloni in his hotel. He invited me to join them. We are fighting with our movement,
for the defence of identity, borders, what Europe really is. Something very different
from the Europe we know now. The Brothers of Italy is a party
that has neo-fascist or post-fascist heritage, is that correct? We are the party of right in Italy,
but you know what? I was born in 1977, the fascist movement
was finished 30 years before. There is no connection,
I mean, we’re not fascist. Would you say neo-fascist? No. OK, but when you launched your campaign
earlier this year, you did so in the city of Latina,
which was founded during the Mussolini regime. Ah so that’s my … I am like the fascists
because I was elected in Latina? That’s what you’re saying,
you’re not saying that? You were also accompanied
by Mussolini’s granddaughter. And I just wonder what kind of image
you thought that would project? Launching your campaign in a city
founded by Mussolini, with Mussolini’s granddaughter. What was the intention behind that? Oh the intention was nothing in particular,
we are very strong there. I think sometimes you have got
a wrong way of seeing Italy. It is a very easy way of reading
that but you know what? Politics in Italy is a very difficult thing. Steve, when you told me
you were going to meet Giorgia, you described Brothers of Italy
as a neo-fascist party. I don’t think I did. You did twice. So, I’m just wondering
who’s right? Is it not a neo-fascist party
or it is? Because that’s what you said to me. I don’t think I did at all,
I don’t think I did. I don’t remember saying that. I mean, you can write
what you want, OK? I tried to explain to you why it is different. The neo-fascist thing,
does that not concern you? I … no, if you look at the roots
and where they came through, and where she’s going today,
I don’t even think she’s that far right a party. Critics might look at the people you have
involved, the people you’re talking to, the people who you’re doing business with,
from Giorgia Meloni through to Filip Dewinter, and say that you know,
these are parties with connections to neo-fascist history. I don’t think … I think you’re trying to say, ‘oh these guys are a bunch of Nazis.’ Look, we’re partnering with parties
who I think are going to be quite mainstream over time. You’re normalising these people
aren’t you, Steve? That’s what you’re doing.
You’re normalising these people. That’s absolutely not correct. Normalising?
What are you talking about? I’m normal alone,
wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I’m normal alone. People will find this deeply offensive,
particularly Jews who live in Europe. Hang on a second. You’re talking a lot. My God, you didn’t hear me. 25 years I’m doing politics. I’m fighting for my people,
is that a problem for you? A few days after this meeting,
the Movement announced its first major recruit. Salvini was the star guest
at this year’s Brothers of Italy conference. But there was another speaker
on the bill. Do you know who this man here is? No? No. Steve Bannon? Ah yes. Yeah, yeah. You don’t know him,
Steve Bannon his name is. He’s an American,
who helped Donald Trump. Now you remember, and he’s here… For someone who was barely recognised,
Bannon was getting a lot of media attention. He was hosting reporters day and night. The intensity of coverage was curious given
that outside of Italy, Bannon was struggling to recruit members. France’s Marine Le Pen and Hungary’s Viktor
Orbán appeared ambivalent about involving an American in their campaigns. And parties Bannon was courting
in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Poland, Austria, the Czech Republic and Germany were all indicating
they would not sign up. Later that night,
Bannon invited me back to his hotel. We were joined by Raheem Kassam,
previously Nigel Farage’s top aide and now the person
that Bannon calls his head-guy in Europe. So let’s just talk about
who signed up and who hasn’t because you … Can I just say something? Some people may not ever admit
they’ve signed up until after the European elections, here’s the thing
you got to remember: once again,
on the building blocks of success, I’m doing all the polling,
whether there’s a country officially in or not, right? I’m doing all the data analytics,
whether a country’s in or not, so we’ll be there available to them. They can either use it or not use it. Some of them may actually use it
without ever doing it. Our ability to help them
set up war rooms … Why would they not want to admit
that they’re talking to you? It may be, it may be,
they may have internal politics. Let me put a more charitable view to you. There is something happening in European
politics right now … Is there now, is there now? Can I just finish? And then I’ll get you to
respond. Can I just finish the question? It will be more effective if I ask the question
and then you can respond to it. Then I can mock and ridicule. There’s no sort of rightwing tsunami,
but there is a high tide of radical right parties. And it’s effective and Italy
is a very good example of it. But what you can’t deny about it,
is it has nothing to do with you. I have no idea and it doesn’t matter. If I have no impact on it,
it doesn’t matter at all. It just doesn’t. It’s good for your reputation though,
isn’t it? if you can ride the coattails? I don’t think it’s riding the coattails,
look, at the work I’m doing over here. I don’t think it’s riding the coattails. Ask Meloni, why now, is this, is this … Now you have to say,
I gotta break bad on Steve Bannon, right? That’s what you’re saying. We’ve welcomed you in here,
and now you’re asking the prick questions. That’s fine. They’re difficult questions. They’re not difficult questions,
they’re not difficult, they’re not difficult questions at all. Only you think they’re difficult questions. Respond to the question then. Did you see the crowd tonight? I did see the crowd tonight. That’s no impact? What did you think of the crowd tonight, what
did you think of the crowd tonight? I’ll tell you what … I’d like to answer the question. OK. The crowd tonight was there
for Giorgia Meloni and Salvini. I agree with that. I think you’re photobombing Italian politics
is what I think is happening. Oh God, no. The thing I saw tonight though … What did you see? … how effective you are,
at getting media attention. The media circus was there
and I think that part of what you’re doing is succeeding. There is an impact in that. What’s the impact? Well, this is how politics has changed,
it used to be about parties, it used to be about grassroots,
and we’re in a digital era now, and somebody like you can come over here
and you can create through this hype, this notion that somehow you’re pulling
the puppet strings. Oh I’m not …
I’m not, OK, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. See, this is where you’re dead wrong,
I’m not a puppet master, I’m not pulling puppet strings,
that’s ridiculous. You have this self-obsession
that you guys matter. Here’s what you matter,
here’s what you matter. I’m answering the question,
please let me answer. All right. Please let me answer.
Please let me answer. Here’s what it matters,
nothing, zero. OK, if it matters zero,
why are we doing this interview? Why do you spend so much time with journalists,
why do you spend so much time courting the media? Well, because people come to me
and say: ‘Hey want to cover the story’. I haven’t made one … Mischaël, you got to get over here,
you got to get in this interview. Here move over. He always asks the tough questions Mischaël,
when you’re not here. I want to go back to the thing about the speech. Why do you say it was a textbook thing of
populism? You’re a student of this. You said I was complimenting you. It wasn’t intended as a compliment. Why? It was meant to be descriptive. Well, OK, fine, I see what you’re saying
because … I take it as a compliment because… Sure, lots of people would say that
populism has quite negative connotations. Do you think Trump’s speeches
are populists in nature? Well, Trump’s speeches have elements of
populism but they don’t go the full way. Why? Well, because he’s good at railing
against the elites, but he’s not so good at empathising with
the people. Why do you say that? Narcissists don’t make good populists. Hang on, sh, sh, sh, sh.
It’s a live set brother. Um, OK. Because if you think that you’re the source
of power and everything you say is correct, and you have that degree of sort of self-belief. That’s not like populism,
that’s more like authoritarianism. OK. Interesting. And we will make America great again. Bannon’s success running Trump’s campaign
is a cautionary tale for anyone who doubts him. It took a decade for Bannon to emerge
from the fringes of the Tea Party, and insert himself into the heart
of the White House. But elections in Europe are different to America
and after weeks of research, we discovered a major flaw
in Bannon’s plan … the law. Most parties that Bannon wants to help
are in countries that prohibit foreign organisations from giving substantial support to campaigns. The only countries with both laws
that give Bannon free rein, and parties that want his support,
are Italy, where he’s enlisted Salvini, and the Netherlands,
home to the extreme anti-Islam MP, Geert Wilders. I had a chance to put this to Bannon
during our last rendezvous – in Paris. Hey sorry about this,
it’s been crazy. Busy? Yeah, yeah, crazy. What the experts have told us is that polling,
data analytics, help with social media, setting up war rooms, all the things that
you said you’re going to do for these parties, would be illegal in most of these countries. My council hasn’t said that across the board,
I’ve already started doing the, as I told you,
already started to do the polling data, but if we can’t share with people
then we’re not going to be able to share it, so maybe … So you wouldn’t share it with these parties? No, you can’t.
I’m not going to violate, I would never, I don’t violate American election law, I’m certainly not going
to violate European election laws. The only countries where you have a willing
partner, and laws that allow you to do this, are Italy and the Netherlands, and Italy is just about to pass a new law,
that would ban you from doing it. Just you and Geert Wilders. That’s a start. That’s a bit embarrassing, isn’t it? Well, we got to find out …
I got to find out what the illegality is. What’s the difference between
a Russian interfering in a US election, and an American interfering
in a European election? Well, I don’t know if it’s called
interference. It’s very different from a Russian or Chinese
or other people trying to have influence, than … Why? Because I’m a private citizen. What’s the difference? Because I’m doing this as a populist
and people approached me. What’s the difference? I’m not doing it as a White House guy. It’s a huge difference, hang on,
I’m not associated with the White House, I’m not associated with the Republican party,
you know … You were Donald Trump’s chief strategist. I was. Until last year. I was. Of course you’re associated. No. I mean, it’s a serious point. People are more aware than ever about foreign
interference in elections. I told you from day one, we would never violate European election laws
in individual countries. Do you know who commissioned that? Who commissioned what? The Arc de Triomphe. Who? Napoleon. I sense you’re a fan of his,
you quoted him, ‘When you set out to take Vienna,
take Vienna.’ You’re not going to take Vienna, Steve. Both parties in Austria
have no interest in what you’re doing and the law doesn’t permit you to do it. You’re absolutely, you’re absolutely,
well, I don’t know about the Freedom party, but you’re absolutely incorrect about that. Well, they said
they’re not interested. Well, you should sit in the meetings
I sit in. You know, I have a pretty good sense
of where to spend my time and where not to spend it. It’s very effective here,
and people appreciate it, and we’re going to continue to spend it. I got to bolt, anything else? Just four months into his European venture,
it may seem like the end of the road for Bannon. But he’s a master of propaganda
and whatever the law says, I sense he’ll be back.

100 thoughts on “How Steve Bannon’s far-right ‘Movement’ stalled in Europe

  1. What people like this interviewer fail to realize is that bottom up means exactly that. Grassroots is not top down. He further fails to clearly define his use of "populism". He seem as to conflate populism with opportunism, at least as it applies to the conservative movement. It can be successfully argued that the Liberal Progressive Socialist movements, in toto, are populist at the core.

  2. The only thing that smells worse than Bannon's body odor is his obvious desperation to remain relevant.

  3. Bannon like all trumpturds, is very weak when he is off-script. This journalist lured him out of his happy place and showed he is little more than a sloppy neo-fascist.

  4. In a democratic nation-state, no matter how bad the politicians, they still are accountable to the population every 4 or so years. If the globalists win, and the nation-states get abolished, there will be a power vacuum, and there is no such thing as a stable power-vacuum. Other people will grab power, and whomever they may be, they are much less accountable to the people than politicians in a democratic nation-state.

  5. LMFAO Bannon was part of the economic collapse. It was companies like Goldman Sachs that peddled in junk stocks. Notice how Bannon and his supporters in Europe are all part of the wealthy elite?

  6. In Latin America we know those populists very well, claiming to represent the real interests of the people while living in palaces and enjoying fine dining (in this case Venetian palaces)

  7. This amateur-night so called reporter ought to do some research.
    It would help him to ask intelligence insightful questions.

  8. These people don't tell what it is, Bannon is a lunatic and that is coming from a right wing person. He is a Pentecostal lunatic.

  9. Funny how naively people belive what to make interview with a person to take parts of its speach and make up a video from that, which is showing things what your clients tells you to show is a true journalism.

  10. The Guardian……………of globalism. I love how he gets shutdown at the 12:00 mark for debating vs interviewing. Very slanted documentary.

  11. The Guardian's consistent labelling of anyone they don't like as far right is an obvious symptom of their substandard to journalistic integrity.

  12. Believing it's important to have a healthy middle class and upwards social mobility whilst being in the upper class yourself does not constitute a contradiction. That's hard to understand for someone with a pedantic, elitist attitue, I know.

  13. Being very alarmed by 'right wing nationalism' and never wondering where it actually comes from besides 'muh dumb working class racists'?

  14. The left has pretty saying but ugly doing, while right is the opposite. Grass root will learn that gradually. I never consider different races are the same, and they are better on different fields. Agreeing with this fact makes me "racism"? OK, i take it and proud of it.

  15. Is Brothers of Italy an Italian dating app putting through blond women with bald men ?

  16. You have almost 1M subs but can only get about 1/3 of that in viewership? Something smells like Merkel… fishy. Seems like bought subs.

  17. How is Bannan "far-right"? He hates ethno-nationalists. I'm saying this as an ethno-maximalist, further right than Steve Bannon. Also I can't stand the guy. Seriously, how is he far right? Is it because he's right of Marx and Lenin?

  18. We are WHITE and ITS NOT RACIST TO CARE MORE ABOUT YOUR CULTURE AND ETHNIC PEOPLE THAN IMPORTED FOREIGNERS!

  19. Stay in school kids, lest you become degenerate drunks wanting free handouts because they can't keep up with science/engineering and medicine.

  20. Ahh just look st the TWO LOVEBIRDS…. The Body language of Bannon and the Interviewer are so revealing. And that Italian lady was very confused like " Why is Bannon looking at the Guardian Guy more than at me" LOL The electricity between bannon and the young Guardian interviewer , well you could feel it …and the body language gave it away… Bannon is attrackted to the guy this is why he lets him ask all these annoying quetions… he wants to benear him all day long ….

  21. More lies from a CIA globalist owned media. Prediction….the guardian will be gone in 2 years. Stupid leftist supporting a 2 class of people. Rich and peasants. Leftist are too stupid to research who is behind globalism. Leftist need a government babysitter.

  22. Teabag 'journalists' all went to the same school as Cathy Newman?
    Ask a question, and also supply the answer? Try asking and then STFU so you get more data.

  23. WOW this was a joke. This guy is the defenition of alt-left "activist" journalism. ZERO ethics or intrest in objectivity.

  24. And the POPULIST/NATIONALIST juggernaut rolls across the world 👍 and it’s not even TRUMP 2020 YET THANKS MR BANNON and MAGAx3🇺🇸

  25. Funny how this video never predicted the elections of this year. Where the nationalist/populist would make their mark on elections all over Europe. You all really failed with this sad news reporting last year.

  26. The Guardian is an Enemy of the White Race!
    There is nothing Far Right about wanting to preserve your race, culture, history and Christian Identity!
    Guardian has no problem with African being for the Africans, and Asia being for the Asians,
    only you Christian Whites must die!

  27. Agree with Steve Bannon and the Movement.
    The time has come that this unholy union of Globalists and drawing-room socialists becomes counterbalanced.

  28. People are starting to wake up to the globalists agenda now. They're the real fascists. Who don't elect their EU or un leaders. not caring if you're on drugs, employed, in debt, or homeless, as long as they can make a new iPhone. Countdown to comments disabled:. 3…2…

  29. I'd like to see that guy try and interview Trump like that. Bannon just doesn't have the debate skills to realize when the other guy is using insults and and false pretenses to attack him. He shouldn't even be in interviews if he's going to just roll over like that and admit to things that just aren't true.

    Trump and bannon do have populist messages and intentions because they're pro small business, pro worker, anti big government, and pro nationalism. What the hell could be more populist than that?

  30. I would like to know Guardian opinion about the rise of Brexit Party, French anti-macron protests and the rise of Marine Le Pen… populism is rising and it seems unstoppable…

  31. Pure wish fulfillment. The populist movement is smashing it. Your progressive left is a laughing stock, made up of lunatics and clowns.

  32. The movement has thankfully been flushed.And to make absolutely certain, deport these fascists to a deserted island thousands of miles from humanity.

  33. How stupid can a person be to think a non European can walk in and unite different nationalist groups each from different countries… They don't want to unite… that's the point of their existence.

  34. you want so bad to be a different color it's almost funny.. it's serious youwant so bad to make white people go away.. the more you do it the more this grows..

  35. Liberal mischaracterization in an effort to undermine or discredit.
    The movement and wave across the world says Bannon is right.

  36. the american problem is 100 million gun owners.. i suggest that all people across the world arm themselves to ward off the globalist agenda.. if your government is the only force that have guns your screwed as a people..

  37. I find it funny how nationalistic views are only racist in Europe. I watch thousands of news reports from nationalistic non white countries and there is never any mention in the comments section of how racist these people are.

  38. who is more authoritarian and intolerant than the globalists? Do they tolerate the deviating view from the small individual that do not conform to the big grey masses? Just a new word for being fascists "dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition and strong regimentation of society "

  39. Steven Bannon complains about the journalist using a perjorative, then uses the term metastasise instead of spreading to describe his plans for the movement. Does he not realise metastasise is used to describe the spread of cancer, or more specifically how cancer spreads from one part to another part of the body while skipping areas between the two parts. Without realising it, he is conjuring up imagery of cancer when he talks about his group. Its like saying, my movement will spread like the plague.

  40. What most of the comments ignore is the forced globalist superstate that these elites are imposing and most of which aren't even elected. Through institutions like the EU are eroding the sovereignty of these Nations in a inorganic fashion.

  41. you should of consulted the European peoples what you intended to do
    you did not
    so what would you expect
    now you call us racist because you did not consult us
    and now you cry because your bullying ways are in jeopardy

  42. Populism: "A political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups."
