Steve Bannon told members of the French National Front, a far right wing political party that has been labeled neo-fascist, they should wear their racism as a badge of honor.

"Let them call you racists," Bannon told the anti-immigrant party's audience on Saturday in France, as The Washington Post reported. "Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker."

The former Trump White House Senior Advisor whose mutually agreed resignation from the administration led to his return to Breitbart, a far right wing website he once described as the home to the "alt-right." In January he "stepped down," after comments he made about the Trump administration appeared in Michael Wolf's book, Fire and Fury.

“The tide of history is with us, and it will compel us to victory after victory after victory,” Bannon claimed.

The French National Front was founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted of "inciting racial hatred," anti-Semitism, and xenophobia. Le Pen's daughter Marine Le Pen, who heads the French National Front, ran for President and lost to Emmanuel Macron.
