MSNBC panel mocks Steve Bannon after he bizarrely declares ‘the end of the patriarchy’

Published

On Friday, former White House adviser Steve Bannon sat down with MSNBC’s Ari Melber in an exclusive interview.

During the interview, Bannon gave contradicting support for the Time’s Up movement and the #MeToo movement.

He first called the Time’s Up movement the  “end of the patriarchy.”  When asked by Melber to clarify, he said, “I’m not 100 percent with it, but I can see how it is powerful.”

Center for American Progress president Neera Tanden slammed him as being a charlatan.

“Let me just say on the whole issue of Time’s Up, I might agree with him in the power of the Time’s Up movement, but frankly, the idea that you can talk about the Time’s Up movement in any positive term, and then support Donald Trump, who is credibly accused by 16 women and Roy Moore who was accused of basically pedophilia demonstrates that he’s a charlatan,” Tanden said.

The Root’s political editor, Jason Johnson, said he sounded crazy.

“The core of what he was saying is nonsense,” Johnson said. “He sounds like a pimp saying, ‘Hey, I got a great plan for you to pay for your college tuition.'”

‘You cannot expect anything but fascism’: Pedagogy theorist on how Trump ‘legitimated a culture of lying, cruelty and a collapse of social responsibility’

Published

on

The impeachment of Donald Trump appears to be a crisis without a history, at least a history that illuminates, not just comparisons with other presidential impeachments, but a history that provides historical lessons regarding its relationship to a previous age of tyranny that ushered in horrors associated with a fascist politics in the 1930s.  In the age of Trump, history is now used to divert and elude the most serious questions to be raised about the impeachment crisis. The legacy of earlier presidential impeachments, which include Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton, provide a comparative historical context for analysis and criticism. And while Trump’s impeachment is often defined as a more serious constitutional crisis given his attempt to use the power of the presidency to advance his personal political agenda, it is a crisis that willfully ignores the conditions that gave rise to Trump’s presidency along with its recurring pattern of authoritarian behavior, policies, and practices.  One result is that the impeachment process with its abundance of political theater and insipid media coverage treats Trump’s crimes as the endpoint of an abuse of power and an illegal act, rather than as a political action that is symptomatic of a long legacy of conditions that have led to the United States’ slide into the abyss of authoritarianism.
