Steve Bannon, a man who has been endorsed by former KKK leader and known white supremacist David Duke, has finally denounced white supremacy. Well, sort of.
In a new interview with The American Prospect, Bannon, "dismissed the far right as irrelevant and sidestepped his own role in cultivating it," wrote the author Robert Kuttner. Basically, Bannon is pretending like he hasn't helped the cause of white nationalism all along by all of a sudden reproaching it.
Ethno-nationalism—it's losers. It's a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more.
These guys are a collection of clowns.
It seems important to note that Googling "ethno-nationalism" brings up a photo of Steve Bannon. He is literally the dictionary definition of ethno-nationalism.
