If you like Bannon, you’ll love Wagner

It’s unlikely you’re a fan of either, however, if you’re viewing this site.

Scott Wagner, far right-wing Republican candidate for PA Governor in 2018, is an admirer of extremist Trump associate Steve Bannon. Photo cropped from “Scott Wagner Seated Next to Steve Bannon at “Put Americans First Rally,” Raging Chicken Press, 9/24/17.

No to Steve Bannon

Dear Senator Casey,

Please help me!

President-Elect Donald Trump has appointed Steve Bannon as his chief strategist and senior counsel in his new administration.

Bannon is the longtime head of Breitbart Media, a far right-wing self-proclaimed “news” organization that publishes hateful, disturbing content and what’s more, Bannon is an outspoken white supremacist, anti-Semite and misogynist.

Steve Bannon’s nomination was celebrated by neo-Nazis and the KKK and he will have the ear of our new president. That is beyond unacceptable.

If Donald Trump truly wants to be the PRESIDENT FOR ALL AMERICANS, you will join your colleagues and reverse this appointment.

Kindest personal regards,

Pottstown PA

Mr. Bannon himself seems fine with that description…
