First came  the Boston Globe article about the Robert Redford-like Bannon,

He was gregarious. He was preppy, often dressed in a favorite yellow sweater. As one classmate put it, “He didn’t strike me as out of the mainstream.” Minorities in the class said he didn’t make them feel uncomfortable. A Jewish classmate said he never heard him say anything anti-Semitic.

“I don’t think there’s a racist bone in his body,” said Thomas Meredith, who sat with Bannon in the skydeck.

but swooning keeps piling up

we’ll also accept this reaction from The Rude Pundit

NYT doesn’t want to be bested by the Globe has a Weekly Standard guy reassuring us

The alt-right is small. It may remain so. And yet, while small, it is part of something this election showed to be much bigger: the emergence of white people, who evidently feel their identity is under attack, as a “minority”-style political bloc.

then again, NYT reassured us before

Evolving on the horrible scale

with a good FB comment

hen, let me add, why are we having this discussion to begin with? Why is this a “thing?” Is the insinuation that people with white skin are somehow better, or supreme to borrow a word? And so not being white is lesser than? – that was my first reaction! And how are we going from “Are Jews People” to “Are Jews White” on, perhaps what were formerly, reputable news sources!?!
When The Atlantic engenders a discussion where David Duke feels he needs to weigh in, I can only say, shame on you Atlantic.

I was still slightly ambivalent about Snowden – all that woowoo about privacy, freedom, whistleblowers – held until the Russians confirmed he spilled the beans to them. Greenwald being his “journalist” enabler didn’t help matters much.

The marriage with rapist/Australian white Supremacist Assange who sabotaged our democracy seals it

After securing US, UK for the Nazis and pretty much France, Putin is using these two clowns to finish Germany too – because – history!

n the website statement, WikiLeaks head Julian Assange chided the German government for launching the inquiry without the testimony of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, whose documents ultimately provided its foundation. Having leaked U.S. secrets, Snowden is still a politically difficult figure for many nations to cooperate with.

and another write-out on it

On Wednesday, Germany’s foreign intelligence chief warned that Russia may seek to influence next year’s elections. “Europe is in the focus of this attempted disruption, and Germany in particular,” he told Sueddeutsche Zeitung, BBC reports. Far-right parties are quickly gaining influenceacross Europe, from France to the Netherlands. In the latter country, the anti-EU/anti-Islam Party for Freedom—which wants to record the ethnicity of all Dutch citizens and is leading in the polls ahead of next year’s parliamentary elections—is led by Geert Wilders, who is currently on trial for hate speech.

You decide who the bad guys are here because we are not allowed decisions anymore

this seems pertinent
