Steve Bannon

White Supremacist grifter Steve Bannon, formerly of Donald Trump's Presidential administration, has made quite the new career for himself as a lucrative speaker on the journalism and big thinker circuit.

The New Yorker was rightly pilloried for inviting Bannon to speak at a recent conference. After criticism, they reconsidered, and rescinded the invitation.

The Economist invited Bannon to speak at its conference in London, and received thoughtful and passionate essays, letters, and pleas against their decision, too. They are going ahead with it. Former Economist employee Justin Hendrix explains why it's such a terrible idea.

Here's his Twitter thread.
