Interesting conversation today between Steve Bannon and Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene about a poll she took on her Facebook page of whether people wanted to see the country divided permanently between Blue states and Red states. Fully 43 percent of those responding wanted to see the country split because of “irreconcilable differences.’ Greene said this is “a wakeup call to Democrats in particular, that they cannot do this to our country.” Bannon said dividing the country is a bad idea because the Deplorables already control most of the country.
“We have to start to govern like we mean it. The problem is we win elections and we have these country club Republicans, and we basically are the controlled opposition (even in power). My take is that if you’re going to keep this country together, start acting like you’re in charge. We’re putting together a coalition form the Rio Grande Valley to the inner cities, African American males, the hard-working blue collar Hispanics from those hard-scrabble counties in south Texas. This is a movement that has two-thirds to 75 percent of the country with us.”
