He is smearing Pope Francis who has been departing from the conservative position of previous Popes, and openly criticizing capitalism and Western foreign policy.

And, he goes against China in such an aggressive way that, if Donald Trump follows his advice, it would not only lead to a new Cold War, but to an unavoidable confrontation between two of the most powerful countries on earth: China and the United States.

No one elected him, and after Donald Trump officially fired him from the White House, no one from the political establishment of the United States has been employing him.

Yet, Steve Bannon is increasingly 'influential', in his destructive way. No one dares to charge him with meddling in the internal affairs of Italy, or the European Union. He appears to be 'untouchable'.

He pushes the West into a suicidal confrontation with China. He insults and provokes China so openly and vulgarly that Beijing is forced to react, resolutely and indignantly.

It is therefore time to ask, who Steve Bannon really is.

Yes, sure: a former naval officer, an investment banker, a Hollywood producer, a mass-media policymaker, chief executive of Donald Trump's presidential campaign, a man connected to the notorious Cambridge Analytica.

He not only scares the left, but many inside the U.S. establishment.

According to the Boston Globe:

"On November 15, 2016, U.S. Representative David Cicilline of Rhode Island released a letter to Trump signed by 169 Democratic House Representatives urging the President-Elect to rescind his appointment of Bannon. The letter stated that appointing Bannon 'sends a disturbing message about what kind of president Donald Trump wants to be', because his 'ties to the White Nationalist movement have been well documented'; it went on to present several examples of Breitbart News' alleged xenophobia."

Mr. Bannon, it was feared, belonged to a white-nationalist movement. He denied it, but the allegations never vanished.

*

In summary: is Steve Bannon an apparatchik of the U.S.? Yes. A propagandist of the extreme right-wing? Definitely. A white supremacist? Most likely. A promoter of Western exceptionalism? No doubt about it. But it appears that he is much more than all that. Much more! As Bolton is more than he appears to be, and even Mike Pompeo.

What do these neocons really want? Of course, they want absolute victory for the West. They want to be able to dictate to all the continents of the world how to think, how to live, how to behave, even how to produce and consume. They do not know how to stop, or how to compromise. They can only go in one direction, never looking back.

The most terrifying thing about them is that they are willing to easily sacrifice anything and everything, for the implementation of their dogma: millions of human lives, or even entire economies, world peace, prosperity, anything.

As far as they are concerned, if the West cannot compete, if it is losing in competition (ideologically, economically, culturally or socially), then it has to fight militarily, or through sanctions, plus propaganda. It clearly stinks of fanaticism: either victory or death. Not unlike ISIS.
