Steve Bannon renews call for war on Republican establishment

Former White House strategist Steve Bannon declared war on the Republican establishment on Saturday, comparing Mitch McConnell to Julius Caesar and asking “who’s going to be Brutus” in the political assassination of the Senate majority leader.

In an unapologetic speech at the annual Values Voter Summit in Washington DC, Bannon called on the social conservatives assembled in the cavernous ballroom of the Shoreham Hotel to join him in replacing sitting senators with outsiders in next year’s midterm elections.

    Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell are a disgrace.

    This is actually more important than winning elections against the Democrats.
    Until the Republicans clean house, winning every election won’t matter.
    They have both houses and the presidency and yet can’t get anything done.
    They need to be hollowed out and rebuilt within the scope of our vision.
    Let Paul Ryan run off and become a Democrat, we wouldn’t notice the difference anyway.
