Wow! Thank you joining more than 430,000 MoveOn Members in demanding Congress stop Steve Bannon’s national security takeover!
As you know, Steve Bannon is a white nationalist who Donald Trump appointed as his Chief Strategist and has now placed on the National Security Council (NSC). This is an unprecedented politicization of the Council and opens up the probability that decisions will be made on the basis of politics rather than intelligence and security calculations.
This is unacceptable.
Congress can stop this, and they’ve already taken the first step. Senator Mark R. Warner has introduced legislation to protect the NSC from politicization. This legislation would kick Steve Bannon off the NSC and help protect our nation’s security. But Senator Warner can’t do this alone.
Steve Bannon has made a career out of facilitating the rise of white nationalism and has been praised by the KKK. He believes that war with China and Iran is “inevitable” and he has made a career out of peddling destructive white identity politics. Allowing him to serve on the NSC compromises American security and sends a damaging message to the rest of the world.
