The spirit of Jacobinism is alive and well in the political atmosphere of the globe. Steve Bannon just declared that both Fauci and FBI Director Chris Wray should be beheaded, their heads stuck on pikes and placed on display on the two corners of the White House. As we read in the Daily Beast:
On his podcast Thursday, former Trump aide Steve Bannon, who somehow thinks Donald Trump has won the election, said that a second term shouldn’t just start with firing FBI Director Chris Wray and top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci on national TV. According to him, it should involve beheadings.
“I’d actually like to go back to the old times of Tudor England. I’d put the heads on pikes, right, I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats,” he said. “You either get with the program or you’re gone. Time to stop playing games. Blow it all up, put Ric Grenell today as the interim head of the FBI, that’ll light them up, right?”
Bannon implicitly called for civil war by comparing public beheadings to what was done in the American Revolution and saying that the latter was a civil war:
That’s how you won the revolution. No one wants to talk about it. The revolution wasn’t some sort of garden party, right? It was a civil war. It was a civil war.
Since he is equating what he envisions to the American Revolution and calls it a civil war, he is essentially calling for a civil war and a revolution. What this shows is that revolution — when it is not considered as done and ceased to the current establishment — will inspire others to cause more revolution. But what kind of revolution does Bannon want?
What Bannon is saying here is a reflection of the revival of the spirit of the French Revolution in which mass beheadings and drownings by the hundreds of thousands were committed in public view. This spirit is gradually transpiring into the new zeitgeist. What we are dealing with are not ‘conservatives’ in the conventional sense of the word, but really modern form of liberalism masqueraded with “tradition”. This is the evil ideology that Bannon is inculcating in the world.
The mentality of Bannon is that most ruinous way of thinking that screams for the utter destruction of whatever it doesn’t like. Bannon wants to tear down the current way of governance in Europe and have it replaced with a system of his own doing. The American professor Ronald Radosh recalls a private conversation in which Bannon told him that he was in fact a Leninist and wants to destroy the state:
I met Steve Bannon—the executive director of Breitbart.com who’s now become the chief executive of the Trump campaign, replacing the newly resigned Paul Manafort—at a book party held in his Capitol Hill townhouse on Nov. 12, 2013. We were standing next to a picture of his daughter, a West Point graduate, who at the time was a lieutenant in the 101 Airborne Division serving in Iraq. The picture was notable because she was sitting on what was once Saddam Hussein’s gold throne with a machine gun on her lap. “I’m very proud of her,” Bannon said.
Then we had a long talk about his approach to politics. He never called himself a “populist” or an “American nationalist,” as so many think of him today. “I’m a Leninist,” Bannon proudly proclaimed.
Shocked, I asked him what he meant.
“Lenin,” he answered, “wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment.” Bannon was employing Lenin’s strategy for Tea Party populist goals. He included in that group the Republican and Democratic Parties, as well as the traditional conservative press.
So there you have it. All of these Americans who think Bannon is some hero are in fact getting played by someone who takes inspiration from Vladimir Lenin. He in fact is supporting another Lenin, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, better known as “Tommy Robinson.” Since his real last name is Lenon, lets call him that instead of his pseudonym. Lenon, like Bannon, is a provocateur who enjoys stirring up the pot for attention and causing mayhem. Lenon collaborates with some pretty nefarious people, like Martin Sellner the leader of the pagan, pro-homosexual and racialist Austrian Identitarians. He has ties with the German nationalists, such as the eugenist AfD party and Compact Magazine which is ran by Jurgen Elsasser, an activist and ideologue of the Identitarians. The AfD party has a eugenic ideology within itself. For example, its former leader Frauke Petry (who resigned as the party’s candidate for chancellor because she was too “moderate”) spoke about a future “darwinist’ war in Germany between Whites and ‘Afro-Arabians’, as we read in a report from the Local:
Petry gave a speech in Stuttgart on Monday for German Unity Day in which she predicted a “Darwinistic” conflict between Europe’s residing “transfer payment recipients” and immigrants from the “lumpenproletariat Afro-Arabian world,” the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) reported.
Bannon at one point in time set his priority on helping Trump get elected (his former website, Breitbart, did quite an efficient job in disseminating information to help with the Republican campaign). But now he has been fixated on Europe and shifting the political disposition to the advantage of the nationalists. After the November Congressional elections in the United States, Bannon told Reuters that he would spend “80-90 percent” of his efforts on the political situation in Europe. Which means that Bannon and his ilk are currently trying very hard — with the same energy that they exerted for Trump — to dramatically alter the ideological condition of the Europeans towards a philosophically more tribalist mentality.
Bannon has been raising funds for his and his ally, Benjamin Harnwell’s, organization Dignitatis Humanae Institute (the Institute for Human Dignity) in both Europe and the United States, but one can assume, without being far-fetched — that the majority (if not, a greatly substantial amount) of the funds are coming from Americans. One American organization, the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty, which has spent over £1.3m in Europe since 2008, financed a conference in Italy with the Dignitatis Humanae Institute.
The Action Institute was founded by Robert A. Sirico and Kris Alan Mauren. Mauren is tied with the Calvinist theistic evolutionist organization, the John Templeton Foundation, of which shoebat.com has shown to be Darwinist and a funder for eugenist projects, such as the Epigenetics Literacy Project (ELP) which is ran by Jon Entine, a Jewish American eugenist. Mauren is a director for an advisory board for the John Templeton Foundation, Templeton World Charity Foundation, and Templeton Religion Trust. What is the founder of a Catholic organization doing working for a major supposedly Protestant and yet eugenist organization?
The Acton Institute is tied to the eugenist Sarah Scaife Foundation. From 2012 to 2015, the Acton Foundation received $240,000 from the Sarah Scaife Foundation (you can see details of the funding for Acton here). The Sarah Scaife Foundation was founded by the oil billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife, a eugenist who was close to Planned Parenthood’s founder Margaret Sanger and a pusher for supporting abortion within conservative circles. In the study of the roots of many of these types of nationalistic and right-wing think tank organizations, one will find the name of Scaife lingering about. Scaife was the financial founder of major Right-wing think tanks, such as the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute (one of the biggest lobbyist entities for the Iraq War) and the Center for Security Policy which organized the 2007 Counterjihad Summit in Brussels, the meeting that would commence the Counterjihad as a significant international movement.
Scaife also served as the vice-chairman for the Heritage Foundation, which he had financially established. Scaife, while supporting the Heritage Foundation, donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and other pro-abortion advocates. What this proves is that a pro-abortionist was the financier behind these think-tanks, and by this, behind the institutions that would direct the formation of the Counterjihad. So here we have a link between the eugenists and the Right-wing entities that are pushing for nationalist ideas. To shed further light on this coven of roaches who hide under the shade of patriotism, the Sarah Scaife Foundation has given millions of dollars to organizations like the Center for Immigration Studies and the David Horowitz Freedom Center. The Center for Immigration Studies was founded by the major eugenist, John Tanton, whose think-tank is the main influencer for all groups, activists and politicians who are critical of lenient immigration policy.
The heir to the Scaife fortune is Cordelia Scaife May whose almost $1 billion operation — the Colcom Foundation — bankrolls Tanton’s immigration centric network. This financing is not insignificant or petty. Between 2010 and 2015, the Colcom Foundation put $72.5 million into the Tanton network. In 2015 alone, according to financial filings, the Colcom Foundation donated at least $19.2 million to the Tanton network, including $7.4 million to its flagship organization, the Federation for American Immigration Reform, amongst the largest of the organizations negative to current day immigration policy.
The Acton Institute and its financial backings, and its ties with Bannon and his activity in Europe, demonstrate the link between the organizations that are very negatively focused on immigration, eugenics and the current day nationalist craze that is ever increasing in intensity. It would be unwise to pretend that such activists are confined within the realm of just working against certain immigration policies, and do not ever overlap with pro-abortion (infanticide) activity for the cause of eugenics.
We can see here a plan, done with years of work, for a mechanism being used — through very influential voices — to attract conservatives to accept progressivist ideology and to reshape the conservative movement to be on par with what conservatives have fought against. So if the two are the same, then the eugenist agenda of progressives can indeed influence Western policies. This is being done through a fixation on immigration as a way to get people to see immigrants as a problem to be solved by despotic measures of population control.
Years ago, before Tanton set up his organizations, he was lobbying for Planned Parenthood and even set up a Planned Parenthood clinic in northern Michigan. He would also approach new mothers in maternity wards to tell them about how they should not have any more children.
For years Steve Bannon has been working for the cause of Hindu nationalism. This is obvious for the fact that Bannon has been collaborating with Indian-American industrialist and Hindu nationalist Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar, a Hindu lobbyist who, alongside members of his family, donated over a million dollars to Trump Victory, who also lobbies for the Hindu nationalist political party, the BJP.
In May of 2019 Bannon did an interview with India’s WION TV channel, in which he praised India’s Hindu nationalist prime minister, Narendra Modi. He boasted about how he has been promoting Modi for years:
“When Modi first won five years ago I was very proud of the fact that Breitbart … we covered that election very closely and the reason was, the day he won we put a headline that he was India’s Reagan. And I have been incredibly impressed with Modi since the first day I heard of him and started following him in Indian politics.”
Bannon wants to see a coalition against China consisting of Trump in the United States, the Hindu nationalist Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, and the Japanese nationalist Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe (the same Abe who said that Japanese comfort women centers — where women were raped by Japanese soldiers — “were simply part of the licensed prostitution system of the day.”) He sees these three as a part of an international network of nationalist leaders (ironic how nationalists go internationalist simultaneously) also consisting of politicians like Matteo Salvini in Italy:
“If this thing’s [China] going to be pushed back on, its gotta be Japan, India and the United States. Those are the three most important nations to do this. … And when I look at on our side of the football, and I see Abe in Japan, Modi in India, Trump in the United States, and people like Nigel Farage coming up in the UK, Matteo Salvini in Italy, Bolsanaro in Brazil … and the three most important: Abe in Japan, Modi in India, and Trump in the United States, are the type of men that can really put together I think a very impressive coalition.”
But the most interesting part of this interview was Bannon’s fascination for Hinduism. The interviewer asked him:
“I am told you are an avid reader of the Bhagavad Gita, you follow the Hindu philosophy. I’m very curious to know, what got you so interested in Hindu mythology?”
To this Bannon said:
“Yes, thats true. One of the most powerful books — I’m a Roman Catholic and a devout Catholic, I try to be as devout as I can, I’m a practicing Catholic. But one of the most powerful books, as a young person, I read, was a book by a Frenchman called Man and His Becoming According to the Vedanta, and that got me very interested in Hindu spirituality, in the study of Hindu religion. There was another book by a German professor, called the Philosophy of India, by a professor named — I believe his name was Zimmer — who wrote this book in the 1930s or 1940s. Had a very powerful impact on me. So I’ve studied, to the degree that one can study, I’ve taken a lot of time of my life to study Hindu spirituality.”
In fact, Julia Jones, Bannon’s s longtime Hollywood writing partner and former close friend, recounted that Bannon is obsessed with war and the Hindu concept of Dharma (cosmic law) in the Bhagavad Gita, or the most popular text of Hinduism which teaches on holy war for the cause of Dharma. Jones said:
“Steve is a strong militarist, he’s in love with war—it’s almost poetry to him … [He] used to talk a lot about dharma — he felt very strongly about dharma … one of the strongest principles throughout the Bhagavad Gita.”
The book that this “devout Catholic” (Bannon is tied with the “trad” or traditionalist Catholic movement which has a substantial amount of nationalism) follows, the Bhagavad Gita, actually legitimizes murder (so much for Thou shalt not murder, Mr. “Devout Catholic). In Hinduism, to kill an enemy is not murder, because the one killed has an eternal soul that lives on. To kill is not to kill, as we read in the Bhagavad Gita:
Therefore, great warrior, carry on thy fight. If any man thinks he slays, and if another thinks he is slain, neither knows the ways of truth. The Eternal in man cannot kill: the Eternal in man cannot die. …When a man knows him as never-born, everlasting, never-changing, beyond all destruction, how can that man kill a man, or cause another to kill? (Gita, 2.19, 21, trans. Juan Mascaro, ellipses and bolding mine)
In the same Hindu text the concept of Karma is used by Krishna as a means to killing as he exhorts war and slaughter, dispelling the leftist idea that Karma and Krishna are both “peaceful.” It reads:
Arise therefore! Win thy glory, conquer thine enemies, and enjoy thy kingdom. Through the fate of their Karma I have doomed them to die: be thou merely the means of my work. (Ibid, 11.33)
Bannon reveres Hinduism and supports Hindu nationalism by vocally backing Narendra Modi and his BJP party [Bharatiya Janata Party]. The BJP is an anti-Christian Hindu nationalist party. It wants to implement the NRC or the National Register of Citizens, or a document that is meant to have all of the names of all “genuine citizens” in the state. Currently the NRC is only in the Indian state of Assam, but the BJP wants to implement the surveilling system of the NRC on the whole country. The president of the BJP, Amit Shah, declared on April of 2019 that he wants the NRC to be applied to all of India so that all religions except for Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism would remain in the country while all “infiltrator” religions would be removed:
“We will ensure implementation of NRC in the entire country. We will remove every single infiltrator from the country, except Buddha, Hindus and Sikhs. … We have promised in our manifesto that when Narendra Modi forms government once again, we will implement NRC in the entire country”.
So Bannon is actually supporting a political party that wants to remove Christianity from India, which would mean the extermination of Christians in that country. He calls himself a “devout Catholic,” but truly he is a part of the “trad” (short for traditionalist Catholic) ideological strata that masquerades itself with Catholicity while supporting fascist ideas or entities. This is not surprising at all, given the fact that Bannon backs insidious political parties in Europe like the Front National — founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen who collaborated with Ukrainian Nazis, and the Vlaams Balang — whose leader, Filip DeWinter, wants to create a “White Europe” . If Bannon is supporting racialist parties in Europe, it is not surprising that he is backing a party that hates Christianity.
BJP officials have done other things that are demonstrative of their own sinister ways. In January of 2018, Hindus kidnapped an eight year old girl, ragingly saying: “this is the daughter of a Muslim, kill her and they’ll get scared and run away”. They kept her in a Hindu temple where they drugged, tortured and gang raped her for a week. They eventually murdered her. Eight men were charged for the murder. Hindu nationalists took to the streets to protest in favor of the murderers. Attending the rally were two BJP ministers, Chaudhary Lal Singh and Chander Prakash Ganga.
Singh belittled the crime by saying that: “This one girl has died and there is so much of investigation. There have been many deaths of women here,” as if to say that the rape and murder of the girl is insignificant because many girls are raped. This warped and perverted mentality did not disgust the heads of BJP who did not want to remove the two ministers. But after weeks of pressure, eventually the BJP acquiesced. Modi himself admitted: “The party did not want Mr Ganga and Mr Singh to step down. They resigned because media created an impression that they were supporting the rape accused”.
So why is Bannon lobbying for such a party? Given the fact that he backs the racialist parties in Europe, what this indicate is that this shill of the American Right-wing is himself an antichrist. People will argue and say that he is a good Catholic. Bannon is a part of the “trad” Catholic circles and has ties, through the Dignitatis Humanae Institute (Institute for Human Dignity), with major Vatican officials like Cardinal Raymond Burke and Cardinal Robert Sarah who said that “everyone was created by God to be placed in a specific place, with its culture, traditions, and history,” a logic that can be easily used to justify ethno-nationalism. There are many “trad” Catholics who would fall into the ideology of ethno-nationalism (just look at Leon Degrelle), and Bannon is an example of how the trad movement is entrenched in this ideology.
