Bannon on Fire in CA: Three Standing Ovations at GOP Convention Keynote Breitbart
It's about one thing are you a citizen of the United States of America? Bannon asked the audience. Economic nationalism is not what's going to drive us apart, it's what's going to bring us together. GDP isn't everything. We are not an economy. We are a country. We have a social fabric. I'm a free market capitalist. That's the underpinnings of our society. Economic nationalism means ensuring that jobs that we have allowed to go to Asia come back to the United States.
Bannon said that American citizens should have a preference for jobs and economic opportunity. And that people should have to compete against foreign labor and illegal alien labor. He also decried Europe as being a protectorate of the United States, making no effort to protect themselves. He said that this is changing, It's not that we are being isolationists. We have to start thinking like adults We have to stop worrying about these global institutions The rules-based international order has worked for everybody except the united states of America.
President Bush embarrassed himself, Bannon said as he offered a stinging critique of President George W. Bush after the former President's recent public criticisms of President Trump. It is clear he didn't understand anything he was talking about. He had no idea whether he was coming or going. Just like when he was President of the United States. There has not been a more destructive presidency than George Bush's.
Bannon's strong criticism of Bush was met with a lot of applause in the GOP audience which drew a surprised look from those in the room who clearly were not pleased someone speaking ill of the former Republican President.
It wasn't just President Bush who was singled out by Bannon for his recent remarks, Bannon also was critical of U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ). While careful to praise McCain for his service to the country, he said that McCain's speech this week was nothing but happy talk.
Former President Bush and Senator McCain were both booed by the Republican audience.
Well, it's a start. Especially in California.
