In case you’re keeping track, the Donald Trump has now marginalized pretty much every single minority group there is.
He’s gone after black people, the Latino community, women, Native Americans, as well as mocked the Asian accent and a disabled reporter. And if he hasn’t gone after a specific minority group himself, he’s made sure to have others who have joined his team cover all those bases.
Trump’s VP pick of Mike Pence definitely made sure people know Trump is against the gay community, and he’s definitely solidified that fact with his latest Chief Strategist choice.
Buzzfeed has found a radio interview from 2011 that reveals Trump’s White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon throwing out anti-gay slurs to describe liberal women.
You see, Bannon apparently thinks all women should be good little Stepford Wives and doesn’t think that you can be liberal and “pro-family.” Whatever that means.
Bannon, while going on Political Vindication Radio in 2011 while promoting his movie Fire From the Heartland: the Awakening of the Conservative Woman, boasted how wonderful conservative women are. Isn’t it nice when men can speak for women?
You see, Bannon loves women like Ann Coulter, Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin and thinks that they are a threat to progressive women and the message they try to tell. In reality, the only things those women are a threat to is the English language in its proper form, especially Palin.
“The progressive narrative, Saturday morning was the progressive narrative and that is all about victimhood. They’re either a victim of race. They’re victim of their sexual preference. They’re a victim of gender. All about victimhood and the United States is the great oppressor, not the great liberator.”
Then he decided to throw in an anti-gay slur:
“That’s why there are some unintended consequences of the women’s liberation movement. That, in fact, the 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.”
First of all, as a lesbian myself, what the f*ck is wrong with being a “dyke”? Seems to me he’s just terrified of well-educated women and assumes if you are a well-educated woman who can speak for herself, that somehow makes you a “dyke.” If he can put a discriminatory label on it then it will make sense in the mind of the average idiot conservative listener.
As Buzzfeed explains:
“The seven sister schools are the historic women’s colleges of Barnard College, Bryn Mawr College, Mount Holyoke College, Radcliffe College, Smith College, Vassar College, and Wellesley College in the northeast.”
God forbid a woman be well educated.
What Bannon needs to realize is that liberals don’t despise Bachmann, Palin and Coulter because they’re seemingly more prim and proper in the eyes of others. Liberals hate them because they’re hypocritical a**holes who don’t know their elbow from their ass, as well as being incredibly bigoted.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, Trump surrounds himself with bigoted jerks. This is because he is a bigoted jerk himself. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out, and we need to make sure he stays as far away from the Oval Office as possible.
