Fox News on Steve Bannon Sentence: It’s Tyranny and Total BS – And We Need to Do It

Three months ago Steve Bannon, the former campaign chairman for Donald Trump, was found guilty on two counts of contempt of Congress. And on Friday he was sentenced to serve four months in prison and pay a $6,500.00 fine. This is just the beginning of Bannon’s legal burdens, but it’s a start.

Shortly after the sentence was announced, the usual suspects from Trump’s Cult Defense Brigade commenced their whining and whitewashing on Bannon’s behalf. There was an outpouring of solidarity for a man who was previously convicted of defrauding Trump’s own supporters with a phony fund to build a border wall. Bannon was pardoned by Trump for that conviction. But he is still facing legal peril as a co-conspirator in a plot to overthrow the United States government.

Bannon has already promised to appeal the conviction on grounds that he was only following his lawyer’s advice. That’s a bizarre argument that seeks to excuse any criminal behavior if your lawyer suggests it. First of all, the client is responsible for accepting or rejecting the advice of an attorney. Secondly, if an attorney advises a client to break the law, that attorney’s license should be revoked.

Bannon’s appeal is unlikely to succeed and he will eventually be incarcerated. However, he won’t be alone – at least in spirit. Many loyal StormTrumpers are pledging to “Stand With Steve Bannon!” First and foremost is Lisa Boothe of Fox News who said that…

“I stand with Steve Bannon. This isn’t justice. It’s tyranny and total bullshit. We need to do this to Democrats when we regain power.”

Really? So what we have here is a Fox News host and political contributor asserting that Bannon’s sentence is just the sort of “tyranny and total bullshit” that Republicans should engage if they manage to achieve a majority in Congress next month. Good to know. Although that has been the clear objective of the GOP for decades, it is rarely admitted so openly. And the same sentiment is being proudly expressed by many other disciples of Trumpism…

Make no mistake about it, Republicans are steadfastly pro-tyranny and anti-democracy. They refuse to accept any electoral outcome wherein they are the losers. They are actively striving to steal future elections via gerrymandering, phony electors, suppressing voter access, and gaining control over vote counting operations.

What’s more, they have explicitly stated that they will purposefully cause great harm to the nation in order to get their way. Which makes it all the more imperative that Democrats show up on or before November 8 to cast their ballots for preserving American democracy. Because that’s what is at stake.

  1. I get so tired of seeing MTG’s wide white smile with shit and piss coming out of it.

    • I totally agree! That is one UGLY ass woman and a personality that is 100 times uglier. I think my nickname for her describes her, ”Bonnie the Goon” I normally don’t say ugly things about women in general, but i sometimes wonder if she is really a woman or some kind fiend that some mad scientist created. Her and that filthy skid row bum Steve Bannon would be perfect for each other. They could be called ” The stink couple”
      That statement that Rep. Anthony Sabatini made on that Twittler crap, ”AMERICA STANDS WITH STEVE BANNON” is an example of one of the biggest lies ever told, actually the truth be told, Steve Bannon is one of the bastards that America would like to see thrown in Federal prison forever. These blowhards delusions keep getting more and more ludicrous by the hour. I am fed up with all of them and it wouldn’t bother me one bit if they all went to prison and be executed. Everyone on the planet could breathe a sigh of relief.

      • Your extremist rhetoric that “they should be executed “ is the same kind of ignorant dehumanizing reasoning that you are fervently denouncing. You can’t fight evil with evil. This polarized divisiveness is exactly why we are where we are right now

  2. Too bad this kind of stupid is not more fatalistic saving Americans the eventual touble.
    As history and 60 million dead from a “white rising” from not so long ago would attest to if they could, the only good fascist are dead ones!
