One small step for the Italian government, one giant leap for stamping out internet trolls.

The Italian government has delivered a potentially fatal blow to Steve Bannon’s plans to transform a medieval monastery near Rome into a training academy for the far-right.

Italy’s cultural heritage ministry announced on Friday (May 31) that it would revoke a lease granted to Bannon after reports of fraud in the competitive tender process. The former Breitbart chief and aide to US president Donald Trump was reportedly paying €100,000 ($110,000) per year to rent the 13th Century Carthusian monastery, but now will have to search for another spot.

The Italian state allowed the conservative Catholic organization Dignitatis Humanae Institute (DHI) to use the building early last year. Bannon happens to be a trustee of the institute, and planned to convert the space into a “gladiator school for cultural warriors,” where students would learn philosophy, theology, history, and economics, and receive political training from the former Trump aide himself.

But earlier this month, Italian newspaper Repubblica reported that a letter used to guarantee the lease was forged. The letter had the signature of an employee of Danish bank Jyske, but the bank said that employee hadn’t worked there for years, and called the letter fraudulent.

What? Steve Bannon used fraudulent means to get what he wanted? 

Shocked, that’s what I am, shocked. 

Ever since I heard about this “gladiator school for culture warriors” I have been envisioning Steve Bannon’s fat ass teetering on a horse, half of his face painted blue, and launching into some lame ass conservative version of the speech from Braveheart. 

” Dying in your beds many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance to come back here and tell the libtards that they may block our social media accounts, but they’ll never take our freedom!!!”

But now, sadly that will never happen.

Though I would imagine that it is good news for that poor horse.

    The whole Italian economy is based on the underground ( bartering and cash), so for them to call him out on fraud, it must have been pretty obvious

    ““When you look at the millennial generation as a whole, they seem more liberal,” said Candis Watts Smith, a political scientist and co-author of the book “Racial Stasis: The Millennial Generation and the Stagnation of Racial Attitudes in American Politics.” “When you disaggregate by race, however, you see big differences.””

    Mebbe now he’ll go with the original plan: rent the Coliseum, put a roof on it, feed liberals to the lions.

    There is clearly so many things wrong with this man; however, he needs an intervention and rehab first and foremost. Then he needs to just go away permanently.

      No let him kill himself with the booze and/or drugs. He would be doing the world a favor.
