On YouTube, right-wing candidates are using appearances from Steve Bannon’s War Room podcast to campaign for office | Media Matters for America

Many of the War Room clips uploaded by candidates effectively circumvent YouTube’s already weak ban of the podcast and contain apparent violations by spreading election misinformation. Now, right-wing candidates at the local and national levels are flocking to Bannon’s show to promote their 2022 campaigns and uploading the clips to their own YouTube channels. They often express their support for the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen, a critical “litmus test” for Republican candidates to demonstrate their loyalty to the most extreme demands of Bannon’s hardcore right-wing audience. Many of the candidates Bannon throws his support behind and who appear on his show are linked to the QAnon conspiracy theory, which has also been banned on YouTube. Here are the GOP candidates using their War Room appearances to campaign for office on YouTube, totaling 191,173 views total:

“Flood the zone with shit”

In 2018, while watching Trump’s State of the Union speech, Bannon told author Michael Lewis that “the real opposition is the media. And the way to deal with them is to flood the zone with shit.”

Steve Bannon Sends A Message To MAGA: Stand By

Where has America’s Democratic System taken it. To ultimate never-ending chaos. It’s a system much admired by Australia’s LNP because it allows for minority rule. Democracy can only exist when with elections comes the acceptance of loss. In America there isn’t currently an acknowledgement of loss but a disservice by the Republicans to the people and a total loss of trust in their political sysytem. There is only one Democratic Party in America.

He’ll use this as a fundraising tool and more fuel for his wingnut grievance brand of politics. At one point, Bannon upped the absurdity by screaming he was fighting for liberals and their rights of free speech. Bannon, like all of the MAGA culprits that were involved with the insurrection, cares nothing for the rule of law, instead of setting up a fascist regime set up to stifle all free speech in service of an egomaniacal man-baby.

Leading up to January 6, Steve Bannon publicly bragged about his behind-the-scene role fomenting the insurrection | Media Matters for America

Bannon in front of Jan 6 insurrection

In the days before the January 6 insurrection, former Trump adviser Steve Bannon bragged on his podcast about his behind-the-scenes efforts to undermine the results of the 2020 presidential election. These claims include calls and meetings he joined with conservative lawyer John Eastman and Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who were then running the Trump legal team’s “war room” out of the Willard Hotel in downtown Washington, D.C., where allies conspired to advance crackpot legal theories and misinformation campaigns aimed at stealing the 2020 presidential election from Joe Biden. At one point, Bannon suggested the team at the Willard Hotel solicited bail on behalf of Proud Boys leader Enrique Tarrio, who had been arrested in Washington, D.C., the day before the insurrection. A subpoena issued by Rep. Bennie Thompson, chair of the select committee investigating the January 6 attack, cited Bannon’s involvement at the Willard as relevant to the inquiry. After Bannon failed to comply, the House voted to hold him in criminal contempt of Congress and referred the matter to the Justice Department for prosecution.  A Media Matters review has found that in addition to repeatedly boasting abo

Heeding Steve Bannon’s Call, Election Deniers Organize to Seize Control of the GOP—and Reshape America’s Elections – Mother Jones

One of the loudest voices urging Donald Trump’s supporters to push for overturning the presidential election results was Steve Bannon. “We’re on the point of attack,” Bannon, a former Trump adviser and far-right nationalist, pledged on his popular podcast on Jan. 5. “All hell will break loose tomorrow.” The next morning, as thousands massed on the National Mall for a rally that turned into an attack on the Capitol, Bannon fired up his listeners: “It’s them against us. Who can impose their will on the other side?” When the insurrection failed, Bannon continued his campaign for his former boss by other means. On his “War Room” podcast, which has tens of millions of downloads, Bannon said President Trump lost because the Republican Party sold him out. “This is your call to action,” Bannon said in February, a few weeks after Trump had pardoned him of federal fraud charges. The solution, Bannon announced, was to seize control of the GOP from the bottom up. Listeners should flood into the lowest rung of the party structure: the precincts. “It’s going to be a fight, but this is a fight that must be won, we don’t have an option,” Bannon said on his show in May. “We’re going to take this

Steve Bannon’s Prediction of a Trump Election Day Win Is Premised on Ignorance | The Smirking Chimp

One of President Trump’s most loyal propagandists is predicting that Trump will claim victory on election night as soon as he is ahead among Election Day voters. But that scenario is based on a misconception of how all ballots are counted and the early returns are compiled, according to election and legal experts.

Steve Bannon predicts working-class revolt in Australia as China rises – Politics – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

In an exclusive interview with Four Corners, Mr Bannon identified Australia as the “canary in the mineshaft” — a warning of the consequences of not standing up to China.

“Australia can show you when good and decent people kind of play by the rules and the next thing they look around and many of the economic resources and economic assets of a country are owned by another country,” he said.

  • Mr Bannon plans on taking his economic nationalist message to Australia before the next election
  • He says Mr Trump confronting China was key to his successful appeal to voters
  • He rejects the idea his ideology is racist, saying US workers are ‘finally standing up for themselves’

Yes, Steve Bannon Should Terrify You – The New York Times

 

So is Bannon miscalculating horribly and simply out of his gourd? No. He’s not thinking in the conventional terms of Republicans versus Democrats; he’s thinking that “any disruption is a good thing, and that the best way to get what he wants — a white-centered, nationalist America — is to blow up the establishment,” the Republican strategist said. Other Republican operatives concurred.
