Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, May 10, 2022

"Now let me be brutally frank Esper, cause your book is going to get ripped apart like Bill Barr's [book] ... So don't think you are skipping away from this. When we come to power, don't think you can skip away from this," the far-right political pundit said in his podcast on Monday. "You are going to be held accountable for this, bro."

If you saw the clip of Bannon yammering this idiocy into a camera, well, forget the words. The backdrop tells a story. It looks like some cloth-and-plastic-dolls ofrenda he yanked from the dashboard after stiffing a graveyard shift taxi driver in Matamoros.

... When we come to power, don't think you can skip away from this, ...

If there were anything actually wrong with what was written in the book, Mr Bannon would not need to wait until "we come to power" in order to remediate the wrongs.

So what he really seems to be saying is, ~I don't like what you legally wrote, but I cannot do anything abut it until I can do a sham politically-focused investigation and get revenge that way.~

The fascist POSes are openly threatening retribution via government power.

Aren't righties supposed to be against this sort of thing? What happened to them fearing abuse of government power?

If trump runs again he won't be endorsed by any cabinet member who's not also a traitor.

In other words: WE ARE FASCISTS WHO WILL USE GOVERNMENT TO PUNISH THOSE WHO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT US.

Putin is their idol.

They never feared that. Their only fear is not being in charge. Anything is justified in fighting that fear. Including ending democracy.

What exactly is Bannon going to do?

Perhaps he should be more specific.

"to prevent Trump from politicizing the Dept of Defense.'

Which is pretty much what prevented Trump from being successful in his wannabe Dictator efforts; Gen Flynn couldn't get enough other traitors on Trump's side.

Every utterance from this guy's mouth is flatulence.

As Stephen King wrote, and perhaps said by Ellis Boyd Redding in Shawshank Redemption: "Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free."

(Paraphrasing Bannon)

"In other words: WE ARE FASCISTS WHO WILL USE GOVERNMENT TO PUNISH THOSE WHO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT US."

How "Russian" of him.

If herpes simplex 2 had a face it would be Steve Bannon. What an incredible POS, he needs the Old Yeller treatment, it would improve the country, and help to save our democracy and other democracies around the world.

Dude, I want Bannon to threaten Mattis.

I want to watch that play out in real time.

When host John Dickerson asked Mattis, "What keeps you awake at night?" Mattis responded calmly with a stone cold face: "Nothing. I keep other people awake at night."

I think he probably kept Trump awake at night.

"You voted for this madness. You'll vote for it again."

I voted for what?

The only thing that could ever compel me to vote for Trump would be if it were a Trump v. Bernie contest. In which case I would vote for the monster who was most likely to promote a sound economic policy.
