SPLC REVEALS: Trump’s Campaign Team Belongs To Secretive Anti-LGBT, Anti-Immigrant Hate Group

From the Southern Poverty Law Center:

The two political operatives chosen earlier this month to lead Donald Trump’s presidential campaign after two former managers departed have been members of the secretive Council for National Policy (CNP), Hatewatch has learned. Longtime Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway and Stephen Bannon, executive chairman of the far-right Breitbart News operation, were named on Aug. 17 as, respectively, the Trump campaign’s manager and its chief executive officer. The appointment of Bannon was by far the more controversial choice, given his role at a “news” outlet known for bashing immigrants, Muslims, women and others.

The CNP is an intensely secretive and shadowy group of what The New York Times once described as “the most powerful conservatives in the country.” It is so tight-lipped that it tells people not to admit their membership or even name the group. Revealing when or where the group meets, or what it discusses, is also forbidden. The organization, which can only be joined by invitation and at a cost of thousands of dollars, strives mightily to keep its membership rolls secret.

The CNP is not controversial so much for the conservatives who dominate it — activists of the religious right and the so-called “culture wars,” along with a smattering of wealthy financiers, Congressional operatives, right-wing consultants and Tea Party operatives — as for the many real extremists who are included.

They include people like Michael Peroutka, a neo-Confederate who for years was on the board of the white supremacist League of the South; Jerome Corsi, a strident Obama “birther” and the propagandist hit man responsible for the “Swift boating” of John Kerry; Joseph Farah, who runs the wildly conspiracist “news” operation known as WorldNetDaily; Mat Staver, the Liberty Counsel leader who has worked to re-criminalize gay sex; Philip Zodhaites, another anti-gay activist who is charged with helping a self-described former lesbian who kidnapped her daughter from her former partner and fled the country; and a large number of other similar characters.

        The leopard hasn’t changed her spots.

        I’d be interested in someone questioning her on her thoughts on gay people. She was gushing about how much she respected Rachel Maddow during their interview last week. I wonder if she believes that Maddow is going to hell.

        • Cuberly

          I think she says whatever she can to get through whatever appearance she’s making. Sorta sounds like a dominionist really.

            “Trump’s Campaign Team Belongs To Secretive Anti-LGBT, Anti-Immigrant Hate Group”

            So does H Clinton. ”You can find all about it in a widely under-read article in the September 2007 issue of Mother Jones, in which Kathryn Joyce and Jeff Sharlet reported that “through all of her years in Washington, Clinton has been an active participant in conservative Bible study and prayer circles that are part of a
            secretive Capitol Hill group known as the “Fellowship,” aka The Family. But it won’t be a secret much longer. Jeff Sharlet’s shocking exposé, The Family: The Secret Fundamentalism at the Heart of American Power will be published in May…. At the heart of the Family’s American branch is a collection of powerful rightwing politicos, who include, or have included, Sam Brownback, Ed Meese,
            John Ashcroft, James Inhofe, and Rick Santorum.”
            http://www.huffingtonpost.com/barbara-ehrenreich/hillarys-nasty-pastorate_b_92361.html

          • NancyP

            Her votes do not reflect the Family/Fellowship positions. This looks like one of these things centrists do when they want to get to know the people to their right. Hillary is (so far as we know) an small o orthodox Christian (Methodist). I mention this because the Family/Fellowship is NOT small o orthodox Christian, it is heretical. I would be surprised if she still has contact with core Family/Fellowship people, since she hasn’t done what they wanted.

          • Bill_Perdue

            H Clintons rabid opposition to marriage equality and her other votes proves, as the article says, that she’s a rabid right wing religious adherent. I provoded the link but it seems you reade it.

            Absolutely. All the fun and best people go to hell.

        • fuzzybits

          I thought I read she was involved with NOM at one point.

        • NedFlaherty

          Kelly Anne Conway is a permanent Roman Catholic.

          She has no “thoughts on gay people” because she agrees with both of her popes that LGBT people never need any equality because they don’t even exist (per the Vatican’s official doctrine).

          She was a long-time poll-taker for NOM.

      • I was never a fan, but I didn’t take her as another Ann Coulter.

        • Lumpy Gaga

          She had a better job than Coulter.

        • Cuberly

          The main reason Conway has stuck in my brain is one time when she was discussing abortion. The panel was predominately pro-choice, and Conway took it upon herself to (paraphrasing) state that abortion was a leftist issue most women weren’t concerned about. Then she went on a rant about how women where more concerned about the economy and what schools were teaching their kids.

          It was such a monumental dodge the moderator attempted, to no avail, to get Conway back on topic but Conway wasn’t having it. She then succeeded in flipping the conversation as a whole to how it was a partisan issue only. One of the few times I found myself screaming at the TV.

          What started as a reasoned discussion about choice and the reasons Roe v Wade was a necessary milestone was successfully derailed by Conway.

          In some ways she’s quite good at what she does. But she hasn’t been that great in spinning Trumpism.

          • William

            Come to our house, we scream at the TV all the time.

          • Cuberly

            lol….I think my nerves couldn’t take it. So I got rid of cable.

          • William

            Not having cable will not save you. Trump’s speech in Mexico was the top story on our local news. I was spouting profanities even before the video clip rolled.

          • clay

            Come to my house, I don’t have a TV.

          • Ragnar Lothbrok

            I don’t know what it is, but there something very unusual about her. Something bad.

          • NancyP

            Sure, abortion isn’t the top issue on most women’s minds, because most women don’t think about abortion until they need one. Legal medical procedures tend to be taken for granted.

    Stemberger … isn’t that the guy whose wife left him for another woman??

    • William

      Jonathan Saenz from Texas was dumped by his wife for another woman.

    How nice. Invitation only? What are the initiation fees and ceremony??

    Geesh, folks. 2016. It’s now.

  • Joseph Miceli

    So is anyone besides Maddow going to cover this, or …like the Native American protests of the pipeline… is this going down the news hole? Anyone want to guess?

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      Protests gong in in Iowa for the same Pipeline that began construction even before they had ” official approval ” A bunch of white protesters were arrested yesterday, via state patrol, per Governors direction.

      • Joseph Miceli

        Still no national coverage. Gee, it is almost as if someone told the networks to ignore it.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Nothing surprises me anymore. What would surprise me is if someone at CNN or any other media outlet would actually muster some testicular/vaginal fortitude and report on this; but alas, that would require journalists and they seem to be dying, if not already dead, species in the U.S. of A. these days. Sorry to be harsh, but I can’t say it nicely.

    • Tor

      I think that was pretty nice. You could have called them low-life incompetent scum lower than the dog poop you just stepped in.

      • Jean-Marc in Canada

        Well, I am Canadian so that probably explains the politeness of my disdain. 🙂

        • Tor

          I suppose it’s an indication of the coarsening of our attitudes and language in the States. ;-(

          • Jean-Marc in Canada

            Sadly, I can’t argue that point……though I wish I could.

  • Dig down into the membership listing PDF, and what should appear but…email addresses.
    Not saying you should *do* anything with them. Nope, not me.

    • AJ Drew

      sooo, secret group is not so secret? Umm, I have no interest in contacting them, but maybe our regular “Earn $97 an hour on Google” poster might be…

  • Jeffrey

    What. In the actual fuck. Do they do with Kellyanne Conway’s hair? What the what is going on there? I don’t understand why she looks like she’s got a short hateful hairdo on top of a longer hateful hairdo. Wake up, Kellyanne! This is what happens when you hate the gays!

    • Tor

      I flashed back to Farrah Fawcett with her blow-back, but this isn’t even an equivalent. Someone needs to tell her barber.

      • Jeffrey

        It looks like maybe she goes to PetSmart.

        • Traxley Launderette

          Nah, more like Trump Bark Place.

  • Deanobear

    Anti-Immigrant? Well … Melanoma (or whatever her English name is) should be on top of their hit list, she was born close to Russia … no one asks “what are her ties to the Kremlin are?” … and then thinking about it … Sarah Palin was born closer to Russia than most Americans … “wonder what her ties to the Kremlin are?” … 😎

    • Tor

      Neither has denied it.

  • Bill Post

    ….and his poll numbers just went up 10 points.

  • AJ Drew

    Haters need a secret group? Do they meet at various places (gotta learn the place by giving an egg [and a few thousands dollars?] to that certain clerk at that certain convenience store,) and then…

    Nah, I’m done. Know what? If such a group has been driven into the closet, well… (need I finish this thought?)

  • caphillprof

    Mental illness parading as politics.

  • Bluto

    The 1st rule of Hate Club is you do not talk about Hate Club.

  • Skokieguy [Larry]

    Trump: I only hire the best people:

    Lewandowski – Assaulted reporter
    Manafort – Won’t send kids to school with whiny Jews, domestic abuse, money from Russia to help with overthrow of Ukraine
    Katrina Pierson – Because Katrina Pierson
    Trump Models – instructed to lie on immigration forms
    Trump buildings – Built with illegal Polish laborers
    Al Baldasaro – Trump advisor who thinks Hillary should be shot
    Trump’s butler at Mar-a-Lago – Called from Obama to be killed

    Who am I missing?

    • Traxley Launderette

      Bannon also wouldn’t his kids to school with Jews, is a woman-beater

      Roger Aisles is a sexual harrasser

      Michal Cohen — give me a minute, I know there’s something

      • Skokieguy [Larry]

        Oops, I have to edit, Bannon was the wife beater who didn’t want his daughters going to school with Jews. Of course Aisles! And Roger Stone and on and on.

        • Traxley Launderette

          EDIT:

          That was easy. Here you go. From just a couple week ago.

  • SilasMarner

    Why am I not surprised!?

  • Gerry Fisher

    Look what’s a hop, skip, and a jump from the White House. Talk about “disgusting.”

    CNP members now control both Donald Trump and today’s Republican Party.

    CNP is the premier hate group among all hate groups, more influential — and secretive — than any other hate group, restricted to only the most extreme haters. CNP membership is by invitation only, it costs thousands of dollars, and members are required to never disclose anything.

  • NancyP

    Well, this is no surprise. A large percentage of the big donors and a few media personalities, pundits, and politicians belong to CNP. It is the strategy confab of the 0.1%.

  • NMNative

    I’m surprised that they aren’t advertising this. Seems exactly the kind of group trump supporters would love.

    • NancyP

      Naah. They don’t want the rank and file to see how chummy Trump is with big money donors.

  • B Snow

    So she’s not just super-religious and/or super-ambitious, she’s actually a bigot, too. Good to know.

    Last night’s extra Rachel Maddow show (because most of her regular show was pre-empted for Trump’s shouting party) was about anti-immigrant secret groups like the Know-Nothings. Amazing how this stuff comes around again and again.

  • The_Wretched

    The CNP are dominionists. They want to replace our secular democracy with a christian theocracy.
