Not all concentration camps are death camps. But they all concentrate people who are considered to be unwelcome, and they all are miserable places to inhabit.

Listen to this audio recorded by ProPublica, and accessible via Wikipedia.

So Trump’s camps for kids who were forcibly separated from their parents are indeed concentration camps.

Did Steve Bannon suggest Trump’s concentration camps for kids?

Bannon was responsible for suggesting Trump’s failed ban on visitors from particular predominantly Muslim countries.

Bannon is also known for suggesting actions that will excite Trump’s “base”.

Bannon also thinks strategically, and Trump has stated that one goal of ripping kids from their parents was to force Democrats to vote for funding his base-pleasing wall.  (Extortion!)

So the idea of concentration camps for kids smells like Bannon.

Like Bannon’s suggested ban on visitors from Muslim countries, the executive order for concentration camps for kids has produced a dramatic defeat for Trump.

If Bannon is indeed responsible for it, he will have been responsible for both of the major defeats so far during Trump’s presidency.

Bannon also boasted of having made Breitbart into a vehicle for spreading the ideas of the racial-ethnic supremacists. That problably led to Trump’s claim – after the debacle in Charlottesville – of moral equivalence between the supremacists and their opponents, a claim that shredded Trump’s reputation.

Bannon is a font of bad advice.

What was said of Lord Byron applies even more strongly to Bannon: he is mad, bad, and dangerous to know.
