Daily Stormer: Hail Steve Bannon as the new king of “bitch-slapping Jew-haters”

Steve Bannon, saying something terrible, probably

Sleazy bigot Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart boss who Donald Trump wants as his chief White House strategist, isn’t terribly popular in Washington at the moment. But he’s getting a lot of support from the white supremacists he pandered to at Breitbart — from former Klan leader David Duke; from Richard Spencer, the guy who came up with the euphemism “alt right” in the first place; and (of course) from Andrew Anglin of the Daily Stormer.

“Bannon is the best person who could have been placed in this key role, besides perhaps Pat Buchanan and me,” Anglin wrote in a post on the Daily Stormer (archived here).”This is all going in the right direction, and I am very happy to see the Jews raging.”

Anglin cites one rather unique reason for supporting Bannon, above and beyond his ideological affinities with the neo-Nazi alt-right: Bannon was once arrested for allegedly beating his now-ex-wife.

Anglin quotes the following paragraph from a Washington Post piece on Bannon, putting the last sentence in bold text:

Bannon was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence against his former wife more than 20 years ago; the charges included trying to prevent a victim or witness of crime from reporting, inflicting injury and battery. Bannon was never convicted and the case was dismissed. His former wife also accused him of making anti-Semitic remarks, according to a court statement obtained by the New York Daily News.

Anglin’s response?

He declares that “the age of bitch-slapping Jew-haters has dawned,” by which he evidently means a new age for (alleged) “Jew-haters” like Bannon who (allegedly) demonstrate this hatred by (allegedly) slapping those who show sympathy with Jews.

Bannon once famously declared that activists on the right needed to “bitch slap the Republican party.” Anglin evidently likes that, for Bannon, “bitch-slapping” isn’t just a metaphor (allegedly).

Anti-Semitism and violent misogyny, all wrapped up in one nice neat little package.

I grew up in Eugene, that sure sounds like the place I came from.

None of us are safe in Trump’s America.

There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding how Trump got elected. That whole popular vote/electoral college thing ? We don’t have that here. As such, people just think he won the popular vote. I’m hearing that from the right and far-right, sure, but also from the government “left” and my own particular flavor of far-left pansy ass pinkos.

I’ve noticed that to, especially from the “we need to give him a chance people”, they keep justifying it with “well, the American people voted for him” and while there is an interpretation of that that is true, it isn’t true the way they mean it, because just ignoring the fact that half the country didn’t vote, he lost the popular vote

So Bannon is an anti-semite because 20 years ago an angry ex-wife said he was? Not exactly rock solid proof you have there.

Your point being? I mean, I got the premise of your post. But why? You here to defend Bannon’s honor? Are you actually looking for “rock solid proof”? Tell me, what’s the goal?
