IS STEVE BANNON AN ANTI-SEMITE?
Bannon stands for truth, not hatred. Updated on 11/22/2016.
On Figure 1 we see that Trump's Chief Strategist STEVE BANNON has PRESIDENT touching him in the column immediately left of his name. Trump knows that Bannon is not an anti-Semite. That doesn't mean that he never criticized us because we Jews are, like everyone else, not perfect. On this matrix TRUMP is at one skip less than STEVE BANNON. As is indicated in the open text crossing Steve Bannon's name, he will know that there is a discrimation made by the Lord between Israel (Jews) and others (like Egyptians who do not support President Al-Sisi). In following Trump's leadership Bannon will back the Jewish people over the Arabs when they stray from the path of peace.

How Steve Bannon and Breitbart News Can Be Pro-Israel — and Anti-Semitic at the Same Time
Breitbart News, the site chaired by Donald Trump chief strategist, Steve Bannon, is widely known as a platform for white nationalism and anti-Semitism. It is also brazenly Zionist, peddling a right wing perspective on Israel.
Trump’s Jewish supporters have pointed to Breitbart’s Zionist stance to defend the president-elect’s choice of Bannon, who was painted as an anti-Semite by his ex-wife in court documents. Bannon denied making the anti-Semitic comments.
My Comment: If you asked my Catholic ex-wife from 40 years ago, she will tell you that I claimed to be a prophet. Nothing could be further from the truth. Judaism accepts no prophets after the Tenach (what Christians call the Old Testament). My ex-wife and I divorced over religious matters and went through an enormous custody battle that was covered in the press around the world. This was at a time that I was in the process of transitioning from being non-religious to Conservative Judaism and on to Orthodox Judaism. She misused many things that I said then. Ex-wives are a poor source of information.
“He was and is and remains staunchly pro-Israel,” said Abe Katsman, the chief counsel for Republicans Overseas Israel, who has written for Breitbart News..
Yet though it would seem impossible to hate Jews but love the Jewish state, these two viewpoints are not as contradictory as they appear.
There is actually “little correlation” between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, according Steven M. Cohen, a sociologist at the Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion. To be sure, anti-Semitism is found among the anti-Zionist left. But it is also found among the Zionist right.
“Many people who dislike Jews like Israel and many people who are critical toward Israel are affectionate toward Jews,” said Cohen.
My Comment: If President-elect Trump, who knows Bannon so well, thought there was any possibility that Bannon is an anti-Semite, he certainly wouldn't have offered Bannon the job that he did, especially because Trump is so close to his Jewish children and grandchildren. If Ivanka Trump or her husband Jared Kushner thought Bannon was an anti-Semite they surely would have advised Trump to pick someone else. As we see in Table 1 below White Evangelical, born again Christians supported Trump to the tune of 81%. This is an important constituency to maintain support of, and Bannon has the experience to keep them loyal. This same group tends to be strongly pro-Israel. However, their moral values are far closer to those maintained by Orthodox Jews than to those held by other Jews. Jews who are not Orthodox tend to support agendas like gay marriage, which is clearly anti-Torah. Whoever is anti-Torah is also anti-Christian, because the Torah forms the first five books of a Christian Bible too. Thus, if Bannon had criticized these types of Jews, he was right to do so. Liberals, be they Jew or Christian, who reject the moral judgment of the Creator and who want only a politically correct god and who will not recognize the religious freedom of religious people need an attitude adjustment. This will take more than just throwing out racist names. If Liberals want respect for their beliefs then they need to start having respect for those who disagree with them.

STATISTICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF THE FIGURE 1. As per my standard protocol, no statistical significance is assigned to the axis term, here STEVE BANNON at its 6th lowest skip (in wrapped Torah).The most significant term was DISCRIMINATE. This is because the major issue being advanced about him by the liberal press is that he is guilty of discrimination against Jews and other minority groups. This term was found in the open text against odds of about 229 to 1. The odds against finding PRESIDENT at a special case skip (+/- 1 or the absolute skip of the axis term) were about 8 to 1, although it is impressive to see the term at the same skip as STEVE BANNON and in the column next to his name. The transliteration of TRUMP (tet resh mem peh) is only four letters and is thus not the best one possible (5 letters with an alef between the resh and mem). Odds against finding a 4-letter transliteration on the 444-letter matrix were about 3.14 to 1. Overall, the after factoring in the ELS rank of 6 for the axis term, the matrix was found against odds of about 977 to 1. However this doesn't pay any attention to the message that that crosses Bannon's name the bulk of which was only found a posteriori and this not subject to a calculation under my protocol. He will know that there is a discrimination made by the Lord between Israel (Jews) and others.
HOW TO REALLY FIGHT AGAINST DISCRIMINATION. The liberal press continues to whine against the election results and to accuse Trump and everyone associated with him of bigotry. When extreme groups like Alt Right use a Nazi salute to celebrate Trump's victory, they refuse to hear the President-Elect when he repudiates their support. And yet, their feelings and those of less extreme whites are not hard to understand. Let’s look at a few groups and where hatred of them comes from. More, let’s look at how to fix it.
- African Americans. During the election we heard (up the kazoo) that Black Lives Matter. They do, but they and all liberal politicians absolute refused to say that all lives matter. Barack Obama was elected twice because white Americans supported him. In return we were continually told that our lives did not matter. Since we could not convert to the black race, many of us felt that we had no option other than to elect Trump even though many of us were appalled by so many of his comments. Every time there was a shooting of an African American by a member of the police, even when the shooter was a black cop, we witnessed mass looting and riots. The policeman was judged as guilty by the black masses, and even by our black President in remarks before the United Nations. This was true even when the legal system found the policeman to be not guilty. The famous “hands up, don’t” shoot incident in Ferguson, Missouri was a prime example. If black people want to be treated with respect they need to start getting married before having kids, and stop making excuses for riots.
- Muslims. It is no secret that Muslims commit most of the terrorist acts on Earth. It’s also true that not all Muslims (or even a majority) support terrorism. However, American Muslims have all too often been silent when they knew that there were terrorists in their mosques. Those who express more sympathy for Sharia law than for the U.S. Constitution actually promote hatred against themselves. This has not been true for any other religious group. If they force the U.S. to pass discriminatory laws, even if such laws work, the very need for them is a victory for those who hate our country. Solution? They need to clean up their act.
- Homosexuals. For a long time they fought for their rights. But in doing so they also fought to overturn all traditional religious values and to persecute those who didn’t see things their way. When I enrolled my younger son into the Alameda Community Learning Center for 6th grade, the school brought in gay guest speakers who were married to other gays. When my son told them that he was a religious Jew and that homosexual marriage went against his upbringing, for two months students continued to stick Stop Homophobia and Kick Me signs on his back. He was continually attacked. Finally we had to withdraw him from the school. This did not foster any support in our family for their cause.
- Jews. I know fellow Jews who have never in the past half century voted for any party but the Democratic Party. In looking back over my own voting record I plead guilty of voting Democratic sometimes but certainly not always. President-Elect Trump has a somewhat similar record. In each election I have voted for what I saw as the best candidate. Non-religious Jews need to start being more open minded, and not a guaranteed vote for any party. If you’re curious, here’s how I voted and why since I was old enough to vote:
1968: Humphrey (Democrat) after I had been on Robert Kennedy’s staff before his assassination. I was still addicted to my Democratic upbringing.
1972: Nixon (Republican) because McGovern seemed more like a Communist than an American.
1976: Carter (Democrat) because he served in our nuclear Navy and because he reminded me of Kennedy.
1980: Reagan (Republican) because of how Carter mishandled the 444-day Iran hostage incident.
1984: Mondale (Democrat) because Reagan claimed that we could win a nuclear war. I believed that the only winners of a nuclear war would be the cockroaches.
1988: G. H. W. Bush (Republican) because he said, “Read my lips, no new taxes.”
1992: Clinton (Democrat) because Bush broke his promise and raised taxes.
1996: NOBODY Clinton was a perverted liar who got impeached, and Bob Dole hated Israel.
2000: Al Gore (Democrat) because I thought G. W. Bush always had a smirk on his face that mocked everyone who knew less than him, and because I then believed in global warming.
2004: Kerry (Democrat). While I can’t stand him now after his sellout to Iran on the nuclear deal, back then I really hated Bush.
2008: McCain (Republican) because he was a war hero and because I read Obama’s book, Dreams from My Father, and I realized that Obama made clear that he hated whites, Jews, and capitalism. He also seemed to indicate on page 307 that he was born in Kenya.
2012: Romney (Republican). Though nobody in my family voted for him in the primary, at least I knew that he was born in the U.S.
2016: Trump (Republican) because Hillary Clinton is a corrupt liar who belongs in jail and because I believe that Trmp can fix the military that Obama broke.
TOTAL VOTE SUMMARY: 6 Democrats, 6 Republicans, one time no vote.
BOTTOM LINE: It’s easy for a group to shout that others are bigoted against them. But before taking down the country over it, look at your own group’s actions. Look at what negative things that others are saying about your group, and do what you can to make sure that you are not guilty of what they criticize your group for.
