During the weekend at a far right-wing political party event, former Trump aide Steve Bannon encouraged the group to embrace their racism because “history is on our side.”
“Let them call you racists,” Bannon told the anti-immigrant party’s audience on Saturday in France, according to The Washington Post. “Let them call you xenophobes. Let them call you nativists. Wear it as a badge of honor. Because every day, we get stronger and they get weaker.”
“The tide of history is with us, and it will compel us to victory after victory after victory,” Bannon claimed.
The French National Front is an organization known for its racism, anti-Semitism, and xenophobia. The group was founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted of “inciting racial hatred.”
Le Pen’s daughter Marine Le Pen, who heads the French National Front, attempted a run for President but ultimately lost to Emmanuel Macron.
