With a contempt vote looming from partisan House Democrats over a subpoena he ignored, Steve Bannon, former White House chief strategist and host of the War Room podcast, warned Americans this week of impending “psychological warfare.”
“The first tenet of psychological warfare is to break you to become compliant to make sure all your actions and the human agency will be futile.”
Bannon went on to argue that Americans must take steps to protect themselves with the proper tools for this sort of combat:
”With information, you can be armed to take action in a world gone awry and that you will never succumb to psychological warfare which is to break your resistance which is to make you complicit.”
Bannon’s criticism came Monday while discussing technology on his show with guest and journalist Joe Allen.
Allen—a contributor on the War Room podcast—writes stories discussing the rise of technology and how that intertwines with humanity.
But the message aptly resonated with his current situation after the partisan Jan. 6 commission undertook a fishing expedition to gain intelligence on former President Donald Trump’s future political aspirations.
Democrats claimed that Bannon, who left the White House early in the Trump administration over rumored clashes with other top advisers, continued to have Trump’s ear and may have acted as a liaison between the White House and the protest.
“In the days leading up to Jan. 6, on that day itself, Steve Bannon was one of the president’s closest advisers,” claimed House Intelligence Chair Adam Schiff, D-Calif.
“He was predicting that all hell was going to break loose on Jan. 6,” Schiff continued. “So he clearly has relevant information to share with the committee, and we’re going to make sure that he does.”
True to form for the two-time House impeachment manager, much of the supposed “evidence” that Democrats claim to have that substantiates their claims has been kept private and appears to be circumstantial.
