This article by Patrick Howley originally appeared at The American Spectator:
A cabal of progressive operatives met Sunday night in New York City for a public strategy session that was promoted by the hashtag #DeleteAltRight.
New York State Senator Brad Hoylman hosted the conspiratorial gathering at the SVA Theatre in Chelsea, using the tagline “What You Need To Know About the Alt-Right and White Nationalism.” The event was convened to promote a new film called “Hate in America” by the Southern Poverty Law Center. But the whole thing was about how to target White House chief strategist Steve Bannon and Breitbart, the news site he chaired before moving to the Donald Trump campaign.
Matthew Tyrmand, an advisory board member at my organization the America First Project, provided me with photos and audio from inside the gathering. Tyrmand is a Bannon supporter, a Breitbart contributor, and an avowed enemy of anti-Semitism in all of its forms.
James said that the ”prejudice and xenophobia” of Trump’s campaign goes all the way to the top. ”That ignorance and hate is reverberating across the country.”
One of the panelists made clear that Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist, will be targeted above anyone else by the forces of the progressive Left.
As a Breitbart News 2016 campaign reporter who worked under Bannon, I can say with the utmost certainty that the man is no racist. But that’s not stopping the establishment forces on both sides of the aisle from trying to smear him by any means necessary.
An attendee questioner at the event said that Bannon and Trump adviser Stephen Miller are “doing things that absolutely mirror the early stage of the Third Reich.”
Southern Poverty Law Center official Heidi Beirich went into a cartoonishly hysterical diatribe against Bannon, a successful former Wall Street banker and naval officer.
“I would say Steve Bannon is probably the worst offender right now in the administration,” Beirich said. “The thing about Bannon is this: he intentionally stated that he wanted to create the website that he was running…as a platform for the Alt-Right. Those are his words. That’s what he wanted out of Breitbart dot com… he’s sanctifying white nationalism.”
“You’ll find headlines like ‘trannies,’ there’s actually a whole section on the site about black on white crime…it’s actually the thing that got Dylan Roof to commit the shooting in Charleston South Carolina….so when a top adviser to the president says I want to provide a platform for these kinds of ideas it’s scary.”
“I can go on and on and on about these headlines on Breitbart,” Beirich said, calling them “exactly the ideas this country has been trying to get rid of and supersede.”
“He’s absolutely not bashful about it. And he doesn’t seem to care,” Beirich said of Bannon.
“Even in their parents’ basement, behind their computer though, they feel like they have a massive” support system, another official panelist said, referring to so-called “un-affiliated” extremists.
This is the comic-strip fantasyland of hateful, paranoid delusion inhabited by the modern Left. Only a combination of classist isolation, willful dishonesty, and severe mental problems could convince these so-called intellectuals that any of this nonsense is actually happening. But the Left, chastened by their historic loss, want Bannon’s head at all costs.
Republicans need to rally behind Bannon as he plays a key role in the most productive opening period for any modern president. Will supporters of Paul Ryan come to Bannon’s defense, or just let the progressives go at him?
Presidential Debates Set to Ignore National Security, Immigration, and Second Amendment
Ignoring the issues important to Americans.
The 2020 presidential debates are now guaranteed to ignore the critical national political topics of immigration and the Second Amendment, with only a passing discussion on national security.
In a remarkably biased favor to the Joe Biden campaign, moderator Kristen Welker de-emphasized foreign policy as a planned topic of the third debate, structuring it around a reliable list of leftist-friendly topics. The planned topics are the pandemic, race relations, climate change, national security & “leadership,” a colored term for Welker castigating the President over what she sees as mean tweets.
SV News has reported that Welker has scrapped foreign policy questions alltogether after the revelation of Hunter Biden’s corrupt dealings involving his father with Burisma.

The third (de facto second) presidential debate will include yet another segment on “Race in America,” in which a leftist moderator will harangue the President on the existence of supposed “white supremacist” groups and demand the bow to the elitist lie of “white privilege.”
Immigration was entirely ignored during the first presidential debate, and it seems more than likely that it’ll be swept under the rug during this one, unless President Trump goes out of the way to mention his policy accomplishments on the matter. The Second Amendment has been wholly ignored, as well.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien penned a letter to what he termed the BDC (Biden Debate Commission) questioning as to why the traditional focus on foreign policy in the third presidential debate was being replaced, at the very moment Hunter Biden’s highly suspicious personal foreign business dealings have been placed under scrutiny.

More than 50% of American citizens describe both these issues as “very important” in recent polling- more so than climate change and “race and ethnic inequality.” Yet, seemingly endless racial conversations have been featured at both presidential debates, and expounded upon at length at both electoral town halls last week.
Joe Biden has promised that he will not deport any illegal aliens, except for those convicted of violent felonies. This would represent a dramatic repudiation of American immigration law in itself, and could lead to truly massive new levels of illegal immigration. This stands to be totally ignored in the debate process.
It’s time to scrap the biased Commission on Presidential Debates. These events should be conducted with one liberal journalist and one conservative journalist, as opposed to corporate news hacks who masquerade as “neutral” while arranging a leisurely walk in the park for the pro-establishment Democrat candidate.
