'Commit to the cause': Bannon tells young men 'get involved' to change culture

Bannon said young men need to "commit" to the cause, to the fight, "you have to give part of your being, part of your spirit, part of what you are. Not money, you don’t need to write checks."

In an interview with Benny Johnson on Thursday, War Room host Steve Bannon issued a message for young men that want to help the conservative movement and help effectuate change in the country, telling them to "get involved."

Speaking to young men specifically in their 20s, Bannon said, "I think you have to go out and get as many experiences throughout the world. Don't lock yourself into any one thing in the 20s."

Bannon also stressed the importance of military experience, not noted the current woke state of the military.

"You can’t, particularly with a young man, you cannot ever take away that military experience in your 20s," he said. "I tell people all the time, I’ve had the opportunity to meet the powerful and wealthy throughout the world and the United States. I don’t meet one wealthy guy in the United States, when I’m talking to him that’s in his 50s or 60s that doesn’t say, 'hey, I wish I had actually gone into the service or done something along that lines.'"

"And I understand today in the woke nature of it’s very, very difficult."

Bannon told young people that they should go out and gather as many experiences as they can in their 20s, and step out of their comfort zone.

"For those in their 20s, get as many experiences in as many places of the world, in many different situations. Get out of your comfort zone. Get out of your comfort zone and learn about yourself. You’re only going to find out about who you really are in those situations and what you’re going to find out, most important, is how to, what I call, fall back on yourself," Bannon said.

"Remember, in life, the house’s seven to five against all the time. Everything’s a struggle, and you’re gonna lose a lot more than you’re gonna win.

"But you got to learn how to build off how to mitigate how bad the losses are, number one, and number two, how to build and learn. When you say wisdom, that’s where it comes from.

"It comes from just doing enough things and understanding it’s not all going to be perfect. It’s not going to work out to be perfect," he continued.

Bannon launched into an analogy using the 1st Duke of Wellington, who led the British army through part of the Peninsular War against Napoleon I.

"Wellington used to tell his young officers, and Wellington was probably the guy that trained officers, the best young men, the best — and this is why he was so revered in the British army. When he was in Spain fighting the peninsula — in Portugal fighting the Peninsular War for many, many years against Napoleon. It was, you know, it's a very rolling, mountainous, and he would sit there and call young officers to the front to ride up to the front with him, he’d say, I want you to tell me what's on the other side of the hill," Bannon said.

"And he’d force them to think, they would say, what are you talking about? No, tell me exactly what the topography… and he forced them to think, and that’s one thing I keep telling young people when we train them, think what’s over the other side of the hill. Take whatever endeavor you’re doing and take time every day to think what is downrange, what’s the next 30 days, what’s the next 60 days, what’s the next 90 days, what’s the next six months?

"What is on the other side of the hill and train yourself for that," he said.

Bannon continued on to tell young people that say they would have fought in historic battles like Valley Forge and Gettysburg, "this is exactly what that is. It’s different, it’s not kinetic, and we never want it to go kinetic and it can’t go kinetic, but warfare today is hybrid warfare. It’s psychological, it’s cyber, it’s economic information."

Bannon told young people that they need to "commit" to the cause, to the fight, "you have to give part of your being, part of your spirit, part of what you are. Not money, you don’t need to write checks."

"What you need to do is commit. Once you commit, once you commit, you’re going to find that, it’s a famous saying, once you commit you’re going to find books… podcasts, people, join an organization, you’ll have so many more experiences and so much more camaraderie," Bannon said.

"Just commit to something in the patriot cause, whatever it is, and whatever skill set you bring, and you’re going to change it. Whether that’s going to a school board, whether it’s becoming an election poll, whether it’s helping at a more senior level than that, whatever skill you have, whatever aspect you can put to the patriot cause, it’s what’s going to change."

Bannon said that this is the reason that "they hate Trump and the reason they are trying to destroy people, leaders," it’s because government officials and avenges fear a "populace uprising."

"They’ve never had to deal with this before," Bannon said, noting podcasts hosted by people like Jack Posobiec. "They have an engaged population, and they have an enraged population, and they don’t known what to do, and they’re very heavy handed to how they work right now."

Bannon concluded by telling young people,"you have to become a force multiplier," telling them to push content on the internet, get involved in your community and politics, "and we do that, we’re going to win this."
