Is this who we want on our democracy and national security teams?
Bannon aligned himself with the Anti-Pope Francis hardliners (Source). Bannon is against the Pope’s message of immigration, refugee, and helping the poor and downtrodden.
I’ve already talked about the boogeyman created to instill fear and use that fear as a control on government and citizens. He would rather build walls, keep out immigrants, and even expel legal immigrants from the United States. And, this doesn’t stop in the US, he’s looking for other allies around the world to fuel his populist/anti-immigrant/fear-mongering message.
“We’re at the very beginning stages of a very brutal and bloody conflict, of which, if the people in this room, the people in the church, do not bind together and really form what I feel is an aspect of the church militant, to really be able to not just stand with our beliefs, but to fight for our beliefs against this new barbarity that’s starting.”
“We are in an outright war against jihadist Islamic fascism. And this war is, I think, metastasizing far quicker than governments can handle it.”
What would Pope Francis say?
“A person who thinks only about building walls … and not building bridges is not Christian.”
Just look at the Muslim ban or travel ban… immigrants from the seven nations, predominantly Muslims, had never spilled American blood on American soil. Bannon and Trump are “preemptively” banning without evidence. Their reason – Fear. He wants a war and will start one one way or another, if we let him.
