Steve Bannon in 2012: “We Moved Political Parties Out of the Way and People Took Control of Their Own Destinies”

In March 2012, I covered the Tea Party Patriot rally in Washington, DC on the first day the Supreme Court began trying Obamacare.  This weekend I was reminded of my interview with Steven K. Bannon when I was contacted by TV Asahi, a major broadcast out of Japan.  They featured  a portion of the following on their show Monday.

After re-watching my interview with Bannon, I was struck by what he said about the 2010 elections:

“We moved the political parties out of the way and people took control of their own destinies.”

Now, as the Chief Strategist and Senior Council to the President of the United States, Steve Bannon’s words are especially relevant and almost prophetic today.

(On a side note, because Andrew Breitbart had died only a few days before the rally on March 1, 2012, I asked Steve several questions about continuing Andrew’s legacy and how “regular people” can become political activists, which is the theme of our new PolitiChicks book; but more to come about that later.)
