Bannon, alt-right lash out at Romney, Mormons by Emma Pockstock - Thu, 07 Dec 2017 10:41:21 EST ID:7a5ukmqg No.163963 Ignore Report Quick Reply

As the fight over Roy Moore and the soul (lol) of the Republican party continues, the alt-right wing of the party has turned its sights on an old favorite: the Mormons. After Romney essentially called Moore a "stain" on the party, froglord Steve Bannon lashed out at Romney with a direct attack on his faith:
>“By the way, Mitt, while we’re on the subject of honor and integrity, you avoided service, brother,” Bannon said, according to The Washington Post. “Mitt, here’s how it is, brother: The college deferments, we can debate that — but you hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam.”

This had the predictable result of pissing off pretty much everyone in Utah, including Hatch:
>“I also resent anyone attacking any person’s religious views, but particularly our own Christian LDS faith and the selfless service of missionary work,” Hatch continued. “I’d be more than happy to sit down with Mr. Bannon and help him understand more about the LDS Church at his convenience. I’ve got a copy of the Book of Mormon with his name on it.”

This will likely only widen the rift growing within the party as the ascendant shithead redneck wing of the party continues to antagonise alienate everyone else within both the party and the country as a whole:
>While Bannon’s statements may turn off or irritate those in the West’s Mormon Belt, it could play well in the deep South, including Alabama, where a key constituency of evangelicals see the LDS faith as heretical. And it could be a concerted effort to drive evangelicals to the polls for the special election Tuesday. Moore holds a small lead over Democrat Doug Jones.

This comes at the same time as the Donald decided to privatize national parks in Utah, literally the place that Mormons view as Zion. Next he's going to move their capitol building from Salt Lake to Provo as a power move.

The Mormons have lots of money and make up a large portion of the FBI due to their squeaky clean backgrounds and the fact that lots of them learn a second language for their missions and have international travel experience.

I never thought I would find myself cheering for the Mormon church. So far only a few native American tribes are suing him but give it a week and the top legal team out of BYU will hopefully be assisting with the lawsuit.

Where are they going to go? Bannon knows he's punching down. He'll get more hits to his website and isn't risking the far right's grasp on the government by talking shit on mormons, cause they bow down to the republican party regardless of how poorly their values align.

If Orrin Hatch or mormons at large want to send a message that this isn't cool, they should actually vote with their conscience instead of blindly following party lines.

The ilk like bannon are only alt light because it'd be political suicide to say what's directly on their mind. They still have to finish unraveling and unleashing their plans. But what they're thinking is clear "poor people, blacks, Mexicans, Muslims and liberals all need to suck the dicks of the rich or enjoy indefenite detainment. Faggots too"

I don't think you're giving Utah enough credit. They demonstrated more than any other state their willingness to vote their values over party. And the direction that the party is headed is becoming more and more at odds with Mormon values. Utah hates Trump and the alt-right more than probably any other deep red state. If Alabama can send a Democrat to the Senate, it's entirely conceivable that a non-terrible non-Clinton non-threatening Democrat could win there against Trump. If's there's ever a time when the Republican hold over educated, immigration-friendly, pervert-hating, skeptical-of-evangelicals Utah could finally falter, now would probably be that time.

I say if Bannon wants to make that more of a possibility by attacking their weirdo religion and mocking their precious White Horse, then all the better.

>The photo at the top of this story is Trump’s infamous dinner with Romney where he wanted him to beg to become Secretary of State, and was likely just another opportunity for the president to humiliate a political opponent. What would make Senator Romney interesting is not just his public anti-Trump stances (granted, plenty of GOP Senators have publicly denounced Trump, only to enact his agenda), but the fact that his niece is the GOP chairwoman, Ronna Romney McDaniel.
The White Horse is back, baby! Deseret will rise again!

The media and the centrists really trying to make this a thing. Romney's their last hope to keep believing that American conservatism isn't the howling snakepit of hateful ignorance that Trump revealed it to be. Some geniuses even want him to run as Independent for some reason.

Unfortunately for them, I don't think that "Mitt-ism" is going to save their precious GOP.

Trumpism already won. Look at Shitholegate. Two sitting GOP senators changed their fucking story to back the Trump lie that he never said anything like shithole. They went from "we don't recall him saying that," to "OH HE NEVER SAID THAT! HE IS A RIGHTEOUS MAN OF JEBUS!"

That whole party is under his thumb.

I think those people just like their jobs, or rather the benefits and status that it gives them. Most (probably all) of them are too afraid to break ranks because it makes them an easy target, and gives an undesirable reputation of having integrity.

In any case it's awfully convenient that the whole incident came shortly after the release of Fire and Fury. Instead of dissecting this in-depth look into the shitshow that is the current white house the media is debating use of profanity and "possible" racism.

>Trump backs Luther Strange, Strange loses primary election
>Trump backs Roy Moore, Moore loses general election

Trump's approval rating continues to go down. Getting the seal of approval from him does more harm than good. High ranking congressmen like McConnell and Ryan have to walk a fine line, sure, but if I was a relative nobody or any type of non-federal politician in the GOP, I would distance myself as much as I can from Trump.

Trump isn't exactly the point here. They're trying to stay loyal to the GOP whilst dodging whatever Trump does or says. Which is a crazily fine line at this point that's only going to get worse. Plus these people aren't up for election right now, so their best bet right now is to take themselves out of the game through distancing and obfuscation.

Being anti-Trump=sense of disloyalty to these people. The playfield is so polarized right now so that any misstep could mean the end of their career. While at the same time the big guy at the top is almost untouchable and seems to take every opportunity to abuse this power.

It's really the only strategy left to them that doesn't piss off their donors. It's all they're allowed to do, and it's increasingly proving to be nowhere near enough.

If the disbelief and amazement of president elected by the poorest, most ignorant, and backwards parts of the US, places where trailers make acceptable schools and curricula are censored at the behest of religious/political establishments calling any place a shithole is not readily apparent then you cannot be helped.

flyover/red staters complain endlessly about "coastal elites" and their smug condescension. then Trump does the same to other countries and the same Trumpettes who complained about Northern condescension are suddenly all like, "hey man, just calling a shithole a shithole!"

apparently it's okay to denigrate shithole countries but it's not okay to denigrate shithole states ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'd rather live in Gabon than the CAR, but I'd still react to someone from Gabon calling the CAR a shithole with incredulity.

Even more so when the only visas for these "shitholes" which allow residency require the immigrant to be far more successful than the troglodytes railing against them.
