Gizmodo - 10 Headlines About Science and Tech From the White House’s New Chief Strategist
Unsurprisingly Stephen K. Bannon is not only a bigot, but he embraces pseudoscience as well. Eve Peyser found ten stories that were recently posted at Breitbart under Bannon’s watchful eye, that illustrate this fact.
Sunday, the Trump transition team announced that conservative media king and alleged anti-Semite Stephen K. Bannon will serve as chief strategist and senior counsel to the President-elect. They also announced that former RNC chair and terrible name haver Reince Priebus will be the chief of staff.
Bannon—the man Bloomberg once called “the most dangerous political operative in America”—ran conservative news site Breitbart from March 2012 to August 2016, when he left to join Trump’s campaign as chief executive officer. In 1996, Bannon was charged with domestic violence. His ex-wife also claims he said, “He doesn’t like Jews and that he doesn’t like the way they raise their kids to be ‘whiny brats’ and that he didn’t want the girls to go to school with Jews.” (((Welcome to the White House, baby.)))
Breitbart has supported the careers of prominent shitbags like tech blogger Milo Yiannopolous, along with his 44 interns. If the site’s most infamous headlines—written under Bannon’s leadership—are indicative of the future of technology and science in this country, it is bleak. Very, very bleak.
