Trump's CEO Bannon: Left Vilifies Conservative Women Because They're Not 'Dykes'
August 30, 2016

Buzzfeed's Andrew Kaczynski found footage from 2011 of Trump's new CEO, hailing out of the school of Breitbart, explaining his true feelings about the progressive movement.

He doesn't hold back his hatred for liberal women or women's equality.

Steve Bannon was interviewed by "Political Vindication Radio" while promoting a film he wrote and directed called: Fire From the Heartland: the Awakening of the Conservative Woman.


Bannon said, "That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the [conservative] women that would lead this country would be pro-family, they would have husbands, they would love their children. They wouldn’t be a bunch of dykes that came from the Seven Sisters' schools up in New England. That drives the left insane and that’s why they hate these women.”

If you have followed the history of Breitbart's website and Steve Bannon, you know these words are par for the course. Bannon is a misogynist. And this wouldn't be a big deal if he remained a two-bit conservative blogger with a small audience of fellow he-man woman haters. But Bannon has been elevated to the position of CEO of the Republican Party's presidential campaign.

One can disagree with the stands on feminism, family, or other social issues with anyone in the public sphere. We Progressives routinely criticize and even lambaste Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann, and Sarah Palin. But our standard is, we do so based on their ideas, not their gender. And if we get caught inserting their gender into the argument, Progressive commenters won't let anyone here or elsewhere in liberal media get away with it. It's not acceptable discourse.

Any conservative woman pundit or politician could be a "dyke" from a "Seven Sisters school" and we'd argue the issues, not her gender or sexuality, except perhaps from the standpoint of hypocrisy.

Steve Bannon is a spiteful misogynist, and he is an executive in the campaign of the Republican Party's candidate for President of the United States. Good luck with that woman voter outreach, Reince Priebus.
