The establishment media's big lie about Steve Bannon

David Goldman:
All the existential rage of the defeated and humiliated elite is now focused against Steve Bannon, the architect of Trump's victory, the media genius who won the battle with less than a fifth of the financial resources at Hillary Clinton's disposal.

I know Steve Bannon, and have had several long discussions with him about politics. Steve is fervently pro-Israel, and it is utterly ridiculous to suggest that he is anti-Semitic. Other observant Jews who know Bannon, for example Joel Pollak, attest to his support for Israel and friendship for the Jewish people.

All we have learned from the sewage-storm directed at Bannon is that the Establishment plays dirty and that the formerly Republican #NeverTrumpers aren't just misguided ideologues, but also yellow-bellied, gutter-crawling, backstabbing, bushwacking liars. Hell hath no fury like a self-designated elite scorned. All the existential rage of the defeated and humiliated elite is now focused against the architect of Trump's victory, the media genius who won the battle with less than a fifth of the financial resources at Hillary Clinton's disposal.

They hate Steve Bannon because he beat them fair and square on the battlefield of social media. He is the President-elect's most effective general. Trump's enemies can't reverse the results of a national election, but they can try to cut the incoming president off from his popular base.

Goldman researched around a thousand articles from Breitbart mentioning Israel or Jews and found nothing but pro-Israel reporting.  While my own experience with Breitbart may be more limited I have never seen any anti-Israel material there and the site has a Jerusalem operation too.  I would add that the so-called "alt right" material is also so limited, that I have never seen it either.

The "alt right" appears to be the phantom menace of the post-election period.

Bannon frustrates the mainstream media because he refuses to respond to their attacks and be baited into giving them a story.  But once he joined the campaign, Trump's operation became more coherent and disciplined and that probably scares them more than the "alt right" does.
