At first glance, Sarah’s Facebook post reads like an endorsement of Steve Bannon. Of course Palin would laud Bannon because he made a movie about her.
Sarah doesn’t seem to know, or care, that Bannon is a notorious anti-Semite.
During Bannon’s reign over Breitbart, the website ran articles referring to conservative commentator Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew” and Washington Post columnist Anne Applebaum as “a Polish, Jewish, American elitist scorned.” Former Breitbart editor Ben Shapiro accused the site of embracing “a movement shot through with racism and anti-Semitism,” and Bannon’s ex-wife has testified in court that Bannon has “said he doesn’t like Jews” and didn’t want his children to go to school with Jews.
Jonathan Franks, the political director and executive producer for “The Montel Williams Show,” has said on Twitter that his sources at the pro-Israel lobbying group American Israel Public Affairs Committee are “privately apoplectic” about Bannon’s appointment.
Adam Jentleson, the spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, expressed disgust at the news of Bannon’s appointment. “It’s easy to see why the KKK views Trump as their champion when Trump appoints one of the foremost peddlers of White Supremacist themes and rhetoric as his top aide,” Jentleson wrote in a statement. “Bannon was ‘the main driver behind Breitbart becoming a white ethno-nationalist propaganda mill,’ according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.”
Palin admits that her “favorite” movie is the one Bannon made about her. Sarah Palin is so clueless that she doesn’t even realize that she should pretend that she likes Bannon for reasons other than the fact he made a movie about her.
