Bannon Disinvited from Annual New Yorker Festival After Backlash

Published

on

The former chief strategist for President Donald J. Trump has been disinvited from an annual event for art, political and Hollywood elites hosted by The New Yorker.

“Today, The New Yorker announced that, as a part of our annual Festival, I would conduct an interview with [Stephen K.] Bannon,” said David Remnick, editor of the magazine. “The reaction on social media was critical and a lot of the dismay and anger was directed at me and my decision to engage him.”

Liberals could not possibly have anyone with opposing views ruin their Trump-bashing festival. It would be tragic.

“The main argument for not engaging someone like Bannon is that we are giving him a platform and he will use it, unfiltered, to further the ‘ideas’ of white nationalism, racism, anti-Semitism and illiberalism,” Remnick said.

It seems rather illiberal to shun anyone with a different point of view, barring them from open and honest debate, but the New Yorker’s festival is certainly a private event and that is their right.

Remnick attempted to excuse the magazine by saying that it had already interviewed Bannon this year, and that his presence at the would not add any value, as he is already set in his beliefs.

“There are many ways for a publication like ours to do its job: investigative reporting; pointed, well-argued opinion pieces; Profiles; reporting from all over the country and around the world; radio and video interviews; even live interviews,” he said. “At the same time, many of our readers, including some colleagues, have said that the Festival is different, a different kind of forum.”

The event is scheduled for October 5-7, and will include such guests as musicians Miguel and Kacey Musgraves, and former Obama administration official Sally Yates.

Late night television show host Jimmy Fallon and deranged former comedian Jim Carrey pulled out of the event after Bannon was invited.

Teacher’s Union President Claims It is ‘White Privilege’ to Worry about Children Committing Suicide During School Closures

Sickening hatred.

Scott Wilson, who serves as president of the Pasco Association of Educators in the state of Washington, claimed on a Zoom call earlier this month that it is “white supremacy” to consider reopening public schools and any concerns over children committing suicides while isolated and away from school is “white privilege.”

Additionally, Wilson claimed that reopening schools would be the equivalent of letting rioters storm into the U.S. Capitol. 

“There are decisions to be made. You stand on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol as people break down barriers and head to the doors. Do you follow?” Wilson asked on the call. “You stand at the governor’s mansion. The crowd breaks down barriers to enter the grounds. Do you follow? Or do you choose a different way? We must not ignore the culture of white supremacy and white privilege.”

“We speak of equity, we speak of care of all students, yet we listen and attend to voices saying ‘Reopen everything, I’m free to breathe,’ supporting white privilege,” Wilson continued.

“[Parents] complain their children are suicidal without school or sports. As a father, daily surviving the suicide of my son, I find these statements ignorant and another expression of white privilege,” Wilson said, demonstrating his complete lack of concern of the children’s safety.

The bizarre series of mentally-ill comments can be seen here:

Big League Politics has reported on teachers claiming it is racist to want to open schools.

North Carolina teacher Justin Parmenter, who serves on the board of directors for the North Carolina Association of Education (NCAE), is saying that any parent who wants their child to return to school is guilty of “white privilege.”

“White folks threatening to pull their kids out of public schools if those schools don’t open those doors during a pandemic that is disproportionately impacting communities of color = weaponized white privilege,” he wrote in a Twitter post on Dec. 19.

“Using disproportionate wealth and power to try to impact policy in this manner is the definition of white privilege,” Parmenter wrote in a tweet from Dec. 20.

Parmenter is an elementary-school teacher who revels in indoctrinating his students to his political agenda, as NC’s Education First Alliance has exposed.

“Why do some people claim that teachers should not be political? In what ways is that stance political? How do you respond when people tell you that teaching should not be political?” Parmeter wrote in a Twitter post on Oct. 18.

He believes in indoctrinating children to his political beliefs so strongly that he even hosted a workshop encouraging other teachers to do so shortly before the election…

Unless the people come together and reject this insanity pushed by soulless leftists, the pandemic will mean a permanent shuttering of American life.

The radical Left hates white people, and their dehumanizing rhetoric could lead to genocide if this wicked ideology is not defeated.
