    Bit of a stretch, isn’t it, blaming these guys for all the world’s hate?

    No. The terrorist in New Zealand cited Trump in his manifesto. Bannon is traveling the world inciting white nationalism. There will always be hatred; U.S leaders shouldn't be promoting it on a daily basis, using the complicit media as their megaphone.

    Another in a long line of white men who will be characterized as "mentally ill" to avoid calling him what he is--a terrorist.

    He cited a rich stew of historical figures, fellow crackpots, video games and edgelord memes as well. Positing Trump as a sort of White suprematism Sauron doesn’t seem all that logical to me.

    Terrorists aren't known for their logic.

    The live-streaming of the event to social media was a step into a Bold New Age. Ick.
