Fri, 08/18/2017 - 10:03

In his opening monologue Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson warned that if an effort to depose of statues of historical figures deemed “morally worthless and unworthy of respect,” the movement could next set its sights on the country’s  founding documents. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: All this week we have noted that recent attacks on Confederate statues are not entirely about statues or even about the Confederacy. Instead, there is an effort to abolish the past into the morally worthless and unworthy of respect. The left we predicted wouldn’t stop with Robert E. Lee or Stonewall Jackson but would move on to George Washington. Thomas Jefferson, Teddy Roosevelt and more. Twitter called us ridiculous.

Steve Bannon: Democrats Do Not Understand Donald Trump Voters

Fri, 08/18/2017 - 08:48

White House Strategist Steve Bannon continued to ridicule Democrats for focusing all of their political energy on race divisions, claiming they had no idea what inspired President Donald Trump’s supporters to vote for him. “This past election, the Democrats used every personal attack, including charges of racism, against President Trump. He then won a landslide victory on a straightforward platform of economic nationalism,” Bannon wrote in an email to the Washington Post. “As long as the Democrats fail to understand this, they will continue to lose. But leftist elites do not value history, so why would they learn from history?” As Trump faces criticism from Republicans and dissent from his own advisers, Bannon is trying to refocus the media narrative on the president’s economic agenda. In an interview with the American Prospect, Bannon also gave his frank assessment of the Democrat’s agenda. “The Democrats, the longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em. I want them to talk about racism every day,” he said. “If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”
