Steve Bannon: People advocating against voting in the Georgia special election are “very, very smart” Bannon singled out Fox's Laura Ingraham for taking the opposite position Written by Media Matters Staff Published 12/04/20 2:29 PM EST Video file Citation From the December 4, 2020, edition of War Room: Pandemic [BEGIN VIDEO CLIP] LAURA INGRAHAM: Do these suburbanites need a united Republican Party or do they need people running around saying "Oh, don't vote on January 5th because that would be perpetuating a corrupt process." When I heard that the other day I almost fell out of my chair. I'm like -- y'all almost don't deserve to win if you're that stupid, frankly, sorry. [END VIDEO CLIP] STEVE BANNON (HOST): No, Laura, they're not that stupid. What they want is focus on the here and now. We must sort out exactly what happened on November 3rd and the days after. We're about one month after the alleged crimes happen. ... And Laura Ingraham, this is called a sine qua non -- this, before that. OK? This is essential. No, they're not stupid. In fact, they're very, very, very smart and Laura Ingraham, and I love you, you've been part of this movement for a long time. These people are fighters and they're just not gonna look away and say "Oh we'll take care of the future." No, the future is now.
