You may think you already know too much about geopolitical regime-change architect Steve Bannon, perhaps you were hoping that the creep had already crept back under a rock — not at all, Bannon fans. Be of good cheer, Altrighteers! Taste fist, AntiFas!
Fulsome News and U.S. Empire Report:
Good news for the Fas: SB has crept under a different kind of rock, the Petrine.
Steve Bannon is working to make friends and influence Fascists in a Europe that has shown entirely too much unity since post-war Fascist losses in 1945. The great man is setting up shop in Italy, just one easy commute away from Vatican City, a world capital where he can simultaneously keep his friends and his enemies close. It’s at a medieval monastery built in 1204 CE (only eleven years before the Magna Carta, for the sake of Christ!), a facility quite large enough to simultaneously accommodate dozens of über-conservative deal brokers. The monastery’s building complex was built in an era when Cannon Law was supreme and unfettered, when separation of church and state was capital heresy.
Bannon is a reliable information (propaganda) source for the rightwing political players in the Roman Catholic Church. A base that has become most rigidly rigid in its resurgent Church Militant: a call to reinvigorate The Crusades — a mission, in their words, that has never ended, that needs recruits to defend The West from Moslems (the word Muslim is insufficiently orientalist for their purposes) that have always sought to conquer European Civilization: The Judeo-Christian West threatened by Mohamedism (orientalist for Islam) and the dreaded boogymen in the “Koran” — perhaps best pronounced perhaps as the “Ko-ran”, those fiery fiends that threaten Israel — perhaps also best pronounced as “Is-real”.
Imagine a placard on the base statue of Mr. Steve in the square of St. Peter.
Steven Kevin Bannon
Founder of Bannon Law, an informed interpretation of Cannon Law
stalwart champion of White Rights, Bannonavellianism , the guy who knows how to get the job done and is ready to drop shells on all the egg shells it takes to make a proper Stalinist Omelet.
Rough-beast incarnate: not the kind of slouch who would limit his reach to Bethlehem.
After leaving the White House, Bannon declared his intention to become “the infrastructure, globally, for the global populist movement.

There always has been and I suppose there always will be fascist religious fanatics on all sides of the spectrum. It’s a dangerous genocidal combination, but fitting bedfellows.
Thanks for writing.

Kindest thanks, Peter. I should have specifically mentioned that Bannon is a Roman Catholic with considerable street cred in far-right Catholic media giants internationally. You inspire me to write a post or seven about that tight-knit community. To paraphrase many “I listen to them so that you don’t have to.”
It’s also a way for me to make some use of 12 years spent getting a proper Catholic education.
To quote George W. Bush “That was some pretty weird shit.”
