Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon blasted Alabama Democratic candidate Doug Jones Tuesday as representing the globalist agenda pushed by failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
“A vote for Doug Jones is a vote for the Clinton agenda,” Bannon told a crowd at a rally for Republican Judge Roy Moore.
Bannon spoke as, despite accusations of sexual impropriety, Moore has regained a solid lead in the polls a week away from election day. Bannon suggested that this was in part because of Jones’ inability to hide his hard-left agenda.
“Doug Jones is a citizen of Alabama and I respect that, but I can’t believe this brother is running in the state of Alabama with this record,” Bannon said. “It’s amazing, I mean, what planet are you on?”
Bannon noted Jones’ similarities to the failed agenda of the Hillary Clinton campaign — more associated with East Coast elites rather than the sensibilities of the deep South.
“Guns, abortion, immigration, trade – he’s a Clinton globalist,” Bannon said. “You wouldn’t know it by his campaign literature, because he’s trying to avoid all that, he’s trying to avoid 20-30 years of backing the Clinton agenda.”
However, Bannon also warned the citizens of Alabama that their vote has consequences and that it is not irrational to be angry about the state of the country as it has been governed by the establishment in the nation’s capital.
“It’s these policies of the Democratic Party and the globalist elite, supported by the Republicans that have helped to gut this country, and Doug Jones has been there every step of the way.”
