Sunday President-elect Trump announced his choice for his senior advisor, media mogul Steve Bannon, Breitbart news chairman. The president-elect didn’t enlist Bannon as his top advisor if his opinions didn’t resonate with Breitbart CEO’s phobic, racist, white supremacist views.
The majority of trans woman murdered are women of color. They were all by and far denied opportunities by a racist transphobic society and in the process lost hope of ever extracting themselves from dangerous life choices. The white transgender community might sit back on their haunches feeling secure in our lives but rest assured the haters won’t be satisfied until you are dead too. So we had all best take notice.
How Trump influenced public perceptions…
Progressive intentionally misidentified and vilified as ‘leftists’ by the alt-right, when we are in reality the majority of Americans, as the popular vote for Hillary Clinton clearly indicates.
We are the people who care about all Americans of all races, sexual orientations ethnicities and religious beliefs. Americans have made good use of our diversified progressive media something Trump understands and at times has made use of. But Trump knew that in order to lure and trick moderate conservatives into supporting him he had to make deal. So he brought in Bannon who subsequently committed Breitbart’s full resources hoping to shout over and ultimately cow the free American press.
Hence Steve Bannon…but who is this man?
A very informative insider’s take on Bannon was published by the Daily wire written by a former editor-at-large at Breitbart. Ben Shapiro was dumped for objecting to Bannon transformation of Breitbart into a phobic mouthpiece during the Trump campaign. One reason given was that…
Under Bannon’s Leadership, Breitbart Openly Embraced The White Supremacist Alt-Right.
Andrew Breitbart (founder) despised racism. Truly despised it. He used to brag regularly about helping to integrate his fraternity at Tulane University. He insisted that racial stories be treated with special care to avoid even the whiff of racism. With Bannon embracing Trump, all that changed. Now Breitbart has become the alt-right go-to website, with Yiannopoulos pushing white ethno-nationalism as a legitimate response to political correctness, and the comment section turning into a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers.
The Yiannopoulos that Shapiro was referring to is the same Milo Yiannopoulos that Planet Trans reported during a nationwide university free speech week promoted by Bannon. We just had no idea that Trump would so closely associate his presidency to these awful images or Yiannopoulos’ beliefs.
Much to the amusement of the audience, Milo Yiannopoulos displays the posters that one University had taken down, eventually pulling a receipt from the bag while feigning innocence to the posters origins.
Previously Breitbart remained somewhat of an enigma. Some articles although right-leaning were objectively written and fact based while others more recently are revoltingly racist, transphobic and homophobic. So understandably I was flummoxed one day when one of the many Breitbart twitter accounts followed Planet Transgender. So this explains why.
The twitter hashtag
#StopBannon is making its rounds although the reason dictates that by its self will be ineffectual.
One of the people most affected by the Bannon choice has a letter signed by more than 160 congressional member’s asking Trump to reconsider Bannon’s appointment.

Following his reality show selection announcement Trump goes on a twitter tirade this morning demonizing the New York Times for factual reporting.
Trump has said that arresting his former political rival won’t be a ‘priority’ when he assumes office, leaving an applied threat on the table. But he’s not wasting any time trying to censor the media.
His media advisor should have kept his twitter button away from him, oh what was I thinking? But now that Trump will soon have the nuclear button too, the world trembles and unsurprisingly also reassesses their newest political liability and potential friend or enemy, Divided States president-elect Donald Trump.
