Steve Bannon – Hero to Inner City School Children

As the left continues on with their lies behind their hysteria over Donald Trump winning the election, it's time for a reality check. In this case, it is called “New Deal for Black America.”

For so many years, poor black youngsters along with some Hispanics and poor white children have languished in inner city schools where half of them fail to graduate and the other half leave school functionally illiterate and unable to support themselves.

Enter Steve Bannon; you know, the one called “white nationalist” from morning until night by the main scream media and protesters. Bannon, Trump's presidential campaign CEO, has put it on Donald Trump's radar to make “school choice” (vouchers) available for these children.

Democrats are fiercely opposed to vouchers because they give the parents power that will break the Democrat monopoly, undermine the teachers unions’ lock on public schools and knock out the slush fund unions provide to the Democrat Party.

The Obama and Clinton types have opposed vouchers because their own children go to the finest private schools where they get good educations. Frankly, they could care less about other people's children. Remember all those stories about how Hillary has always been for children. Hah! She's for killing them before they're born and keeping the poorest in failed inner city schools after they're born. Some care.

Republicans have proposed a voucher system but have been so weak-willed, they've never pushed through with it.

These scholarships (vouchers) would allow already-provided taxpayer tuition money to be used in a school, private or religious, where these inner city children would actually get good teaching and decent educations.

Sixteen years ago, David Horowitz proposed to top Bush advisors that they pass a $100 billion voucher program for these inner city children. The Bush admin passed on it. Congressman James Rogan drew up a similar bill that went nowhere.

But when Donald Trump, in his wisdom put in Horowitz friend Steve Miller as chief policy advisor, along with Steve Bannon, who hasn't got a mean or racist bone in his body, as CEO of the campaign; they listened, took it to heart, worked it through and it is now front and center. The proposal has to provide a tuition equivalent to what taxpayers already pay public school for, basically, not teaching their students. Someone recently remarked Bannon looks like a bum. Perhaps he has put working out details for this program above his own haircut. As his critics cry “racist,” and “white nationalist,” he is busy finding a way to help, especially black children trapped in poverty and illiteracy, to find a way out.

Working out the details, Trump put it in a Cleveland speech saying “as your president, I will become the nation's biggest cheerleader for school choice” and it is now included in their “New Deal for Black America,” along with making black neighborhoods safe and bringing jobs back to the inner city.

It's long past time to liberate the children of our inner cities. Let's start with Chicago. First, it's sanctuary city status must go and then, the children there, all too many of which are killing each other, must be given every opportunity to learn and become productive citizens. To do so will bring them pride and happiness and a willingness to be part of the solution, not the problem.

God bless Steve Bannon for being willing to step out on this; present it very seriously to President-elect Trump and God bless David Horowitz, always in there – always trying to improve on us no matter how many years it takes.

Not only does Bannon admit that his media empire is "The platform for the alt-right", but one has only to read his website, Breitbart.com, to understand EXACTLY what he is.

And of course Democratic objections to de-funding public schools in favor of publicly funding private schools is that the vast majority are heavily religious. I sent my son to one of those for a brief period. So much time was spent on memorizing bible verses and on bible classes that he was learning far less there than in the public school.

It might also be helpful to remember that the religious right/"Moral majority" movement began as a protest against allowing black children into private schools, which had sprung up all over the south in particular in response to the de-segregation of public schools. How many minority children will be denied admission to these private schools once the public school system collapses for lack of funding under this scheme?

Aleeta or whoever you are. Thank God the whites in the north stepped forward and did something about the problem in the south, the 1960's civil rights acts that the Democrat party fought and fought and fought, right? God bless the Republican party, always on the side of right when it comes to race.

So you sent your son to one of those "religious" schools? You aren't aware probably that our first schools were founded by Christians who taught children to read right out of the Bible. Their intent in having schools? To be able to read so they could know the word of God to recognize the devil when he attacked. They even passed a law (the old deluder satan act) or some similar wording about it. Children learned their ABC's while learning Bible verses. It worked well.

You might want to do a little study of alt right. Odd, the hatred for white people on here, the very people who founded the greatest democratic Republic in the world - the ONLY democratic Republic in the world. Isn't that the way it always goes. No good turn goes unpunished.

To make the unsubstantiated claim that God would “bless” the Republican Party – or any political party - is pure hubris and needs to be condemned by all who believe in God. There is no correlation between God and the Republicans and even less between God and the “Defenders of Trump.” These so-called “Christians” failed, miserably, to recognize that the greatest trick ever pulled by the devil was convincing bigots, misogynists and homophobes that they were patriotic “Christians.” None are so blind as they who refuse to see.

As to children being taught to read by use of the Bible is recognizing nothing more than the Bible was the ONLY book owned by the early settlers of our nation.

As to the so-called “Alt-Right” those with an intellect greater than that of a turnip recognize is nothing more that a new name for the KKK and White Nationalists.

The “Defenders of Trump” need to seriously look at the horrible mistake they made and recognize our nation is now danger.

You mean the KKK that the Democrat party founded? I feel so sorry for your lack of knowledge about our Founding. Even the words of our own Founders fall on your deaf ears. What a shame! What a shame! Not much you can do with people who refuse the truth.

God is in the Republican platform. You may recall, the Democrats made a deliberate effort to rid their platform of Him....not a smart move at all - could explain the mess they are in today.

Alt right is a term that came into being from a left winger. It encompasses about 200 people - has absolutely NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with Bannon. Honest to God, you lefties get more ill informed by the day.

The KKK was founded as the militant arm of the Democrat Party. Let's not forget that. The Bible was, of course, not the only book owned by the early settlers. Trump has already started saving America from the liberals. We won. Get over it.

Wildrose - The NATIONAL Democratic Party strongly supported the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Civil Rights Movement in general from its inception in 1948.

Southern DIXIECRATS (along with their Southern Republican counterparts) fought against the Civil Rights Act. Legislators voted by region, with more Northern Democrats supporting the CRA than Northern Republicans.

Dixiecrats fled the Democratic Party in droves in response to the National Democratic Party's support of the CRA, making the South the racist Republican stronghold it still is today.

Is that simple enough for you to understand?

You might also keep in mind that many of the Founding Fathers were slave owners on a large scale. These men may have had less time and energy to pursue other endeavors if slave labor hadn't provided them with lives of ease and comfort.

Aleeta - Your history is sadly lacking. First, there were few Americans who even owned slaves. Mexico took three times more slaves then we did. They are intermixed in the races now. Do you hate Mexico for taking so many?

Slavery was foisted on us by England. Our Christian founders were opposed to slavery. Washington inherited his, could do nothing about setting them free because of the law here that went with the slavery. At his death, they were not only set free but taken care of materialistically. Jefferson the same. And no, he had no child by Sally Hemmings.

You aren't aware the entire world had slavery at that time? Some still do. Are you aware the Christian north SET THE SLAVES IN THE NORTH FREE BY 1780? 80 years before the Civil War with the south. Did you know not all blacks were even slaves, especially in the north? Many ran for office....and won. There are pictures of them if you care to look.

The Democrat party was NOT for the 1960's Civil Rights Acts at all. You are knee deep in liberal lies. And the Dixiecrat story is an out and out lie also. And of course, the KKK was founded by the Democrat Party as the military branch of their party - always had the KKK leader as their guest at the national meetings. You need to get into some accurate history because yours is revisionist history.

Once again another "Defender of Trump" attempts to justify the appointment of a racist - oh, pardon me "White Nationalist" - to loser Trump's "team." One can spew all of the utter nonsense they wish, however an examination of Bannon's words on not only the racist Breitbart website but his public comments about Jews and people of color prove he is not is good person - in any sense.

And - as always - shoved in the middle of the rant is the comment that requires repeating of the following - Don't like abortion, don't have an abortion. In all other cases mind your own business.

His public comments about Jews? Uh, want to try listing them....I mean it? The one comment his wife, during divorce hearings said he made that he said he did not make? Wow!

Now try comparing that to the DNC's apparent new choice to head them, Keith Ellison, muslim, Jew hater, Israel hater, lover of all things CAIR and Louis Farrakhan. Doesn't get much worse but then, these same Dems just put loser Pelosi back in also....so she can lose again.

Those defending Steve Bannon seem to follow this quote from Ogden Nash, “The door of a bigoted mind opens outwards so that the only result of the pressure of facts upon it is to close it more snugly".

Bannon is a well known as a racist for his hatred of not just people of color, but his unadulterated hatred for Jews. Bannon denies being a White Nationalist, despite his vitriolic comments proving the opposite, and in an interview in The Hollywood Reporter Bannon stated, “Like [Andrew] Jackson’s populism, we’re going to build an entirely new political movement… It will be as exciting as the 1930s, greater than the Reagan revolution — conservatives, plus populists, in an economic nationalist movement.” Anyone with an actual grasp of history is aware Andrew Jackson was responsible, as president, for the horrifying Cherokee Nation Trail of Tears. Also those who understand history, particularly economic history, would be wise to step far away from the actions that precipitated The Great Depression of the 1930s. And of course Reagan more than doubled our national debt.

Most frightening about Bannon, in addition to his litany of racial hatred, is this quote, “Darkness is good … Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s power. It only helps us when they get it wrong. When they’re blind to who we are and what we’re doing.” In reference to “they,” Bannon means Liberals and the media. Sadly, those groups do not seem to be the ones wrong about what is happening. It’s Trump’s own supporters who are.

Sadly 81% of the so called “Christians” Defenders of Trump are now praising a man whose chief strategist compares himself to Satan. And even more terrifying is this Bannon comment, ““The issue now is about Americans looking to not get f***ed over. If (Trump) can deliver, we’ll get 60 percent of the white vote, and 40 percent of the black and Hispanic vote and we’ll govern for 50 years.” Welcome to the Fourth Reich.

It's a shame the far left Kingman Daily Minor has chosen to be just like the Main Stream Media so despised by the mainstream American. Duly noted. I wrongly thought the KDM had turned a corner but it's now more than crystal clear by how it's moderated that it too should be severely despised. What a shame; it could have been a positive influence instead of the bird cage liner it has chosen to be.

To give a radical "community organizing agitator" like Bob Moore the platform to spew his hate speech at will proves the KDM can no longer be trusted. I wonder who within that hateful organization chose this path of hate and evil...

This paper ignores one Letter to the Editor after another submitted by its more liberal readers in favor of printing ignorant, deceptive rants like the blog above (and sometimes even more than one piece from the same far-right-wing author on a single day). The editorial section of this paper is far from being liberal in any sense of the word.

Surprises me (not really) that KDM dropped your letter claiming, "I try not to talk politics in my writings"! I mean really, do they really think the people of Mohave County are that stupid? I truly believe that we (mostly you) are in for a rude awakening! Your definition of Narcissistic has to of been skewed to me "your" definition! I really cannot believe (again, not really) that you thought Trump was the answer for America, both Dem's and Republican's are in for a shock as this idiot makes a mockery of our political system.
