STEVE BANNON (HOST): You got neo-nazis fighting for them — Zelensky's allies. Now they're going through the hospital wards and taking the amputees. They got the hands and limbs blown off in this war already. Because too many, the able body are sneaking into the United States or going to Ireland or going wherever because they don't want to fight for it. Parents are backing them up. And now you got they're saying, well, hang on. The 2%, the Trump the 2% we agreed to, the Trump's all over us, that's just a theoretical target. We don't really have to do that. Well, hey, do anything you want. You do it. You're not gonna — you can have all the NATO you want, but count us out. We're not there.

We bailed you guys out in World War 1. We bailed you out in World War 2. We bailed you out in the Cold War, and we're not bailing out anymore. We're not gonna bail out Davos, and we're not gonna bail out the Swiss ski resorts and the wealthy in Tuscany, in the south of France, and in Monaco. You guys laugh at us and mock us all the time, these crude Americans. Well, hey, crude American this. You want to defend yourselves, go defend yourselves.


They're saying, you know, all of them to a person all signed up for Afghanistan. Right? That's a bald-faced lie. They had very few combat if any combat casualty go over there, and the whole joke was how they would wanna rotate around and just do the the cooking and get out of the way. They weren't with us in Afghanistan. That's a joke. It's another thing to sell you. They were there and they came together after 9/11. They were all hiding. And they've allowed an invasion of that continent that is unparalleled. And now they're fighting to do more. Those are allies? We're not looking for more protectorates. We got enough problems here in the United States of America, and we're not isolationist. We're not isolationist at all. But we got to take care of business. We'll take care of business. And right now, in the South China Sea and the straits of Taiwan, right there, with those chip factories, which only provide, I don't know, the backup for, what, 30 or 40% of the American economy. That's a priority. Not what they're doing. Not one penny for Ukraine. If you vote for Ukraine, you're anti-American. If your congressman votes for Ukraine and has voted for Ukraine, they got to be turfed out. It's that simple.
