Former top Trump-era White House official Steve Bannon declared on his podcast Friday that the Republican Party is slowly but surely taking over the entire country, from its school boards to its elections.

Unrelatedly, the remarks were reportedly made only “moments” before Bannon was indicted by the Biden Department of Justice for refusing to comply with the subpoenas of the congressional Jan. 6th Committee.

Speaking specifically about former President Donald Trump’s allegations that the 2020 presidential election was tainted by fraud and impropriety, the former Trump administration official asserted, “We’re not complaining about it anymore.”

“Remember, there are no whining and no tears in the War Room. We’re taking action, and that action is, we’re taking over school boards, we’re taking over the Republican Party through the precinct committee strategy, we’re taking over all the elections,” he said.

As an example, he cited what happened in Virginia, where Republican candidate Glenn Youngkin won the Nov. 2nd gubernatorial race despite the state having ostensibly voted overwhelmingly for Democrat President Joe Biden in the 2020 race.

“Suck on this: Ninety-five percent of the billets in Virginia were occupied of election officials and poll watchers, and that is a principal reason that we secured the election of Youngkin, OK?” Bannon said.

A billet is defined by Cambridge Dictionary as “a place for soldiers to stay in for a short time.” It’s believed he used the term in reference to polling places.

“They’re there to have a free and fair count. And we’re going to continue that. And we’re gonna get to the bottom of three November, and we’re going to decertify the electors, OK?” he continued, echoing Trump’s claim that the results of the 2020 election will one day somehow be reversed.

“And you’re going to have a constitutional crisis. But you know what? We’re a big and tough country, and we can handle that. We’ll be able to handle that. We’ll get through that,” he added.

Ironically, though Bannon was speaking about “taking over elections” in the sense of making them secure — though Biden won the 2020 race, there were unaddressed security issues — far-leftists essentially interpreted it as meaning he plans to march an army of “insurrectionists” into every polling place.

Look:

To be clear, not once did Bannon mention anything about violence. Moreover, Trump’s team has been talking about decertifying electors for nearly a year straight now. Yet no electors have actually been decertified because talk is cheap in America, and one must definitely prove their case to win such a ruling.

The controversial 2020 election aside, the former Trump administration official was correct in noting that the Republican Party is retaking over the U.S. However, despite complaints from leftists, this “taking over” is completely legitimate.

The tables are turning and voters are indeed flocking to the right. But this isn’t the result of some evil right-wing plot, as the sorts of Twitter users seen above might suggest. Americans have been growing disenchanted with President Biden and the Democrat Party because of their failed policy prescriptions

The evidence is legion:

But instead of accepting that the party needs to change, it seems many on the left prefer acting like Trump and his allies, including Bannon, are dangerous, otherworldly beasts from the depths of hell, sent here to destroy America.

Yet the only ones who’ve truly been acting like beasts have, it would appear, been Democrats, who’ve launched a war against dissenting parents, tried to reinstitute racial essentialism, and called for the arrest of those whom they personally dislike.

Perhaps they themselves are the ones who’re “dangerous?”
