"Women are going to 'take charge of society"

Steve Bannon warns that women are going to 'take charge of society'


Steve Bannon is reportedly terrified of the #MeToo movement – and thinks Oprah Winfrey poses an existential threat to President Donald Trump.

In the new paperback edition of his book “Devil’s Bargain,” journalist Joshua Green writes that Bannon, the former Trump campaign chairman and White House chief strategist, “thought Oprah might represent an existential threat to Trump’s presidency if she decided to campaign for Democrats in 2018.”

But, Green wrote, Bannon believes the most powerful backlash to Trump is bigger than Winfrey, who’s been the subject of much 2020 speculation. He’s most concerned by the women-led wave of liberal, anti-Trump activism, fuelled by the #MeToo movement.

“The anti-patriarchy movement is going to undo ten thousand years of recorded history,” Bannon told Green. “You watch. The time has come. Women are gonna take charge of society. And they couldn’t juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch.”

Bannon made these comments after watching Winfrey deliver an impassioned speech at the 2018 Golden Globes, in which she lauded the #MeToo movement and delivered a call to arms against racial and gender-based injustice in front of an audience dressed in black to recognise victims of sexual misconduct.

“This is a definitional moment in the culture,” Bannon told Green of the Hollywood awards ceremony. “It will never be the same going forward.”

Bannon reportedly believes that upcoming elections in 2018 and 2020 will be a referendum not just on political conservatism, but on historical power imbalances.

“The 2020 election, he was suddenly sure, wouldn’t be merely the Democrats versus the Republicans, but the Patriarchy versus the Matriarchy,” Green wrote. “And right now, Oprah was winning.”

According to Bannon, we should bring back slavery because we have undone thousands of years of tradition...

Bannon is a wuss. Conservative households just aren't typically that way. They definitely don't listen to Oprah.

Are you seriously saying a jilted woman is not something a young man would avoid if at all possible?

Because if you are then not one person on the planet would believe you, including yourself!

What does that mean exactly? Is there an office where men make decisions on what society should be? Are there no women at all in this office? I think there probably are and if I am right then it*s both men and women who "take charge". Now if this office were to consist of strictly feminists (made up of men and women) then we have a lot to be worried about.

So if you don't think that women are vindictive and there is something very wrong with "th women of today", you're a feminist?

Yours must be a very fragile, toxic masculinity.

There is no such thing as toxic masculinity: it's just more made up psychology to employ more health workers to do sweet fuck all as a full time occupation...

women are going to 'take charge of society'


That's gonna be the new meme on Reddit. If we give all power to women's hands, we're gonna go back to the Stone Age in just a few weeks. We're gonna have a Nuclear war almost instantly.
