    Nicola Sturgeon quits BBC event over Steve Bannon invitation

    Nicola Sturgeon has pulled out of a conference being jointly hosted by the BBC next month after learning that Donald Trump’s former strategist Steve Bannon had been invited to take part.

    Scotland’s first minister said that allowing Bannon to freely express his opinions risked “legitimising or normalising far-right, racist views”.

    She was also critical of the BBC for an attempt to justify Bannon’s inclusion at the three-day News Xchange event in Edinburgh on 13 November in an email sent to her office.

    She is absolutely spot on. The more you allow these creeps into the mainstream the more you risk legitimising nazi trash. I hope that others pull out and the whole thing collapses.

    While Europe cries big fat crocodile tears about this, their whole society is crumbling around them.

    Not our problem, thank the good Lord. Not. Our. Problem. This is exactly what end-stage Rome was up to when Nero was fiddling. Worrying about minutia as the Vandals were at the gates.

    Knock yourself out and feel great doing it, Tommy. We don't really care.

    Steve Bannon is not a "nazi. "


    You lefties are just realizing, very late in the game, that your ideas and policies are crap and you can't defend them against any serious challenge.

    I really don't care one way or the other and I mean that with every fiber of my being. Here's my only care: that if and when it all goes bad for you, we don't spend one American red cent saving your hind ends.

    And I mean that too

    With every fiber of my being

    As far as I'm concerned, no Western European nation is any ally of ours anymore. Not a single one of them. And I'm not alone in that, Tommy. Not by a long shot. Whether you care about that or not is also no concern of mine.

    One thing is sure: these Western Europeans want to shoot off their mouths at us, blame us for everything, hate everything about us including our president, and etc--but when it comes to it, they want us to be their defacto military.

    A lot of us are done with it, and done with calling them allies as well. I mean that and so do a lot of other Americans.

    Tell Western Europeans you don't care about their opinions and, oh yeah, you don't give a rat's patootie about being their ally anymore, including you don't care about sending your young men and women to defend them should the need arise.

    Then watch them tell you, hey hey, they didn't REALLY mean it, they really love America SOOOO much, really really they do.

    No they don't. They hate us and have hated us for years.

    Screw 'em. I really mean it.
