Please read this article....Bannon & Russia

I am using my phone so I can't link to the article.
If you do a search on Bannon and Dugin there is an article from Think Progress called "Everything You Need to Know About Bannon, Breitbart and Russia", a long terrifying but necessary read.

4. It is chilling


Because mainstream Republicans and conservatives have abandoned the cause and accepted things like gay marriage and multiculturalism, the Alt-Right Traditionalists needed to find a new ally and they found a powerful ally in Putin. The Alt-Right thinks that Putin will be their new Traditionalist hero as they have been marginalized by the Republicans and Conservatives of the West. Here are some articles on this alliance:

1. www.washingtonpost.com…

2. talkingpointsmemo.com/...

3. www.thedailybeast.com…

4.www.businessinsider.com/...

The Alt-Right believes that Putin has done a good job imposing “Traditionalism” in Russia. They applaud him for his stance on gays and liberal Western multiculturalism. Putin’s Chief Strategist, Alexander Dugin, has become the intellectual hero of Alt-Right “Traditionalists” around the world.

What Does Trump Have to Do With This?

Trump’s Campaign Manager and newly named Chief Whitehouse Strategist, Steve Bannon, is an Alt-Right Traditionalist, Nationalist and has been using his Alt-Right platform, Brietbart News, to reshape the West into a Traditionalist worldview. In the summer of 2014, Bannon laid out his global nationalist worldview to conservatives.

In his speech, he talked about the dangerous of the secular West and wanting to reinstall a Judeo-Christian, Traditionalist foundation in the West. He wants to get rid of liberal ideology. He, himself, is not against Jews although he knows a lot of the parties he supports are. He stated in his speech that he thinks that they will eventually shed themselves of their anti-Jewish stances. He thinks we are on the verge of a “bloody war” and wants us to be “church militants.”

6. Actual quotes from Bannon suggest he doesn't know the English language as well as he thinks he does.

Not all words and phrases mean what he thinks they mean. If anyone's ever labeled him a pseudo-intellectual, I can understand why.
