The Brink and Steve Bannon

Steve Bannon addresses a Brother's of Italy crowd

Paul Lewis pinpoints the rise and danger of Steve Bannon first in his coverage for The Guardian.  As part of the documentary, The Brink, Bannon fails to acknowledge that his motives are dark, dangerous and bad for a civil and safe democratic society.  Bannon’s preoccupation with Leni Riefenstahl, a film director for Hitler’s propaganda machine,  should be an alarm to most human beings concerned about keeping a free society.  America has had other periods where expression was limited – Joseph McCarthy and the 50’s “Red Scare” as one example.  The dog-whistle rhetoric that Bannon has given Trump and other nationalist focused leaders is a toxic mix routed in those not tolerant of the American and global melting pot. Being proud as a country is important.  Being blind to valid ideas, new techniques and peaceful co-existence with those different from oneself is what set economic competitiveness behind for other parts of the world.  Bannon’s efforts are one of self-righteousness and enrichment at the cost of citizens pursuing their own economic dreams.
