It often happens this way: extreme right-wingers, or call them 'ultra-conservatives,' either in the United States or Europe, suddenly fall from grace, after committing the most heinous crimes. Sometimes it is child abuse or sexual harassment, but most of the time, it is a corruption of tremendous proportions.
In theory, in their own theory, it is not supposed to be this way. Listen to the conservatives, and they will tell you that they are there in order to uphold law and order, as well as the traditional culture of their countries.
But the reality is often very far from the theory.
Steve Bannon has fallen. He has fallen hard, flat on his face. But definitely not as hard as others would fall, would they commit crimes of similar magnitude.
Steve Bannon was actually not caught and charged with trying to ignite WWIII or conspiring to overthrow left-wing governments all over the world. He was not charged with an attempt to destroy China.
He was arrested 'only' on charges of 'defrauding investors,' together with his cohort Brian Kolfage.
On 28 August, CNN reported:
"Kolfage was arrested last week, along with Bannon and two others, and charged by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York with defrauding investors out of hundreds of thousands of dollars a project pledging to construct a wall along the southern U.S. border. He is due to be arraigned on the charges on Monday in a video court appearance."
