Given the chance to actually speak his mind himself as opposed to being demonized by the left, Steve Bannon makes a convincing case in the Munk debate.
Recently, Steve Bannon and David Frum faced off in a Munk Debate.
The resolution was “the future of western politics is populist, not liberal.”
Bannon – who helped lead Donald Trump to victory in 2016, was arguing in favour of the resolution, while Frum – who was a speechwriter for George W. Bush – argued against it.
Before the debate began, just 28% of people agreed with the resolution, while 72% were against it.
However, when the debate was finished, 57% agreed with the resolution, with just 43% against it.
It represents a decisive win for Bannon, who made the case for Populist Nationalism, and showed that he was more persuasive – even to an audience that started out against him.
This is why the left is trying so desperately to demonize and silence people like Bannon and other who argue for nationalism. The left knows that if people actually hear what Bannon has to say, many will realize that it makes sense. So, they try to stop people from ever hearing it.
It’s why defending free speech and free expression is so important, and the Munk Debates deserve lots of credit for standing up for free speech and refusing to stop the debate despite immense protests from anti-free speech leftists.
