STEVE BANNON HAS TO GO!
Merely mentioning Steve Bannon and his strategy to destroy the state can cause anything from polite disagreement to outright argument. Some feel this is a paranoid overreaction to the usual transfer of power. Others, including experts with a wealth of knowledge about psychology and history, see something foreboding in the shadows.
WHAT’s UP WITH BANNON NOW?
When Trump issued his executive order declaring a 90-day ban on immigration for seven primarily Muslim countries, it caught many of us by surprise. It was a shocking announcement, and activists scrambled to organize protests and other reactions. While many of us were conscientiously marching and holding signs at local airports, Trump was quietly reconfiguring the National Security Council. Among other things, he removed the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and he added his sidekick Steve Bannon.
THE PSYCHOLOGICAL TACTICS OF BANNON’S STRATEGY
Some psychologists and political strategists believe that this was all done by design. They called the immigration ban a “head fake” or a “shock event” and they suggest that we fell for it – badly. These experts believe that the new administration is purposely testing the limits of their new power.
By constantly overreaching, opponents, including those of us in the #Resistance, are forced into a reactive or defensive stance. We do not have time to recover from one assault on our democracy before five new assaults occur. This, experts think, is all part of a carefully calculated strategy for “destroying the state.” This is, in fact, a publicized goal of Bannon, a self-proclaimed Leninist.
HOW CAN WE RESIST BANNON AND HIS STRATEGY TO DESTROY THE STATE?
So, what can we do to resist the psychological strategy of Trump and Bannon? First, we can recognize the strategy and tactics Bannon, in particular, is using against us. Then, we can develop and implement our own counter-strategies to resist and minimize Bannon’s ultimate efficacy.

DO NOT ALLOW Bannon to be on the National Security Council!!
Bannon needs confirmation from the Senate Committee on Homeland Security to actually be appointed to the National Security Council. The committee is taking comments right now at this line: 202-224-4751. The calls are coming so quickly there is a recorded voice asking for name, number, and a brief message.
NOT SURE WHAT TO SAY?
Here’s a sample script:
“Hello my name is ______, I’m from _____. I don’t need a call back. I’m calling because Steve Bannon is a white supremacist propagandist and he is unfit for a leadership role ANYWHERE within our government. Thank you.”
