Emboldened by the victory of extremist Bible-thumper Roy Moore in Alabama, followers of Bannon and Breitbart are preparing to challenge Republicans they don’t like in the 2018 elections. They want to find Roy Moore types in other states to knock off Senators who have supported Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan. Steve Bannon is now on the loose as the titular leader of this rebellion. He and Breitbard are funded by multibillionaire Robert Mercer and his daughter Rebekah. Bannon spoke to Moore supporters on election night:

“You are going to see, in state after state after state, people that follow the model of Judge Moore, that do not have to raise money from the elites, the crony capitalists, from the fat cats in Washington, D.C., New York City and Silicon Valley,” Bannon told Moore’s supporters on Tuesday.

What is the “model” of Judge Moore? Racist, homophobic, literal interpretation of the Bible, nationalist, xenophobic, gun-toting.

Who are the “crony capitalists” that Bannon abhors? Well, he might start with his own sponsor, Robert Mercer, who is a capitalist who lives in a mansion on the Gold Coast of Long Island. And where are Breitbart headquarters? D.C.

It is all so crazy.

Bannon said previously that he is a Leninist; that he wants to destroy the administrative state. He is all for getting rid of government health care and letting poor people die. This is not populism. It is anti-populism.
