Targeting of Trump’s new Chief Strategist Bannon called ‘hysterical’

by WorldTribune Staff, November 15, 2016

Still reeling from Nov. 8, key Washington-based media outlets erupted in unison this week as President-elect Donald Trump (who reportedly won the election) named one of the people responsible for his victory as his chief strategist.

“The losers of the left have worked themselves into such a bizarre hysteria over the fact that they lost the White House that they have lost all connection to reality and are now hyping their most ludicrously paranoid fantasies,” David Horowitz wrote in reference to CEO Stephen K. Bannon on Nov. 14.

For those victims of 2016 political reality, “Stephen K. Bannon is the straw man of the hour.”

“I can’t think of anything stupider than the charge coming from all quarters of the left – including a headline in the pathetically wretched Huffington Post – that Bannon is an anti-Semite. The source? A one sentence claim from an angry ex-wife in divorce court no less, that Bannon didn’t want their kids to go to school with Jews. I find that particularly amusing since Bannon wanted to make a film to celebrate this Jew’s life,” Horowitz wrote for Frontpage Mag.

“Not to be outdone, CNN, which has been particularly vicious, did a nasty attack on Bannon using another of the thinnest reeds available: This was a headline at calling Bill Kristol a ‘renegade Jew.’ In fact, neither Breitbart nor Bannon is responsible for that statement. A Jew is. I wrote the article, which was neither requested nor commissioned by Breitbart. And I wrote the headline: ‘Bill Kristol, Republican Spoiler, Renegade Jew.’

Horowitz continued: “I wrote the article when Kristol set out to lead the ‘Never Trump’ movement, after Trump had secured the Republican nomination. I would write it again in a heartbeat. I would write it the same way and with the same headline. Bill Kristol and his friends betrayed the Republican Party, betrayed the American people, and betrayed the Jews when he set out to undermine Trump and elect the criminal Hillary Clinton. Obama and Hillary are supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that launched the Arab drive to destroy Israel and push its Jews into the sea (that was their slogan).”

Horowitz concluded: “I have known Steve Bannon for many years. This is a good man. He does not have an anti-Semitic bone in his body. In his new position as Chief Strategist in the Trump White House, Bannon is the strongest assurance that people who love this country can have in America’s future, the strongest assurance that America is in the hands of people who will give this country a chance to restore itself and defend itself against its enemies at home and abroad.”
