Impeach Bannon Posters are a part of an apparently well connected and financed self described media group. They have launched an establishment crowdfunding campaign on GoFundme. Gofundme Campaign Impeach President Bannon.

(Photo courtesy @BannonThe45th) Protest signs in cities around the country are calling for the impeachment of the president — just not the one you think. “ Impeach President Bannon ” posters were spotted in Washington, New York City and […]
What we know and do not know about this poster campaign
WHAT WE DO NOT KNOW: They describe themselves this way on the gofundme site. “We are a small group of people who work in “media.” That leaves a lot of room for conjecture. Steve Bannon, who is the object of their considerable scorn, also works in media. So is this some kind of media grudge match?
We also do not know where all the logistics are coming from for all of the legal and organization necessary to command the numerous and varied components connected with this campaign. These components include, large media distribution resources, the creation of the “We Just Want Sh*t To Be Sane” Super PAC, staffing to review and distribute posts from the public on no less than two major letter writing campaigns, not to mention all the contractual arrangements that must be produced to have everything working together.
There is no simple way to discover who Allison Kay is. She seems to be listed on Facebook but there is no link to her page. Allison Kay is listed as the main contact on the gofundme site. There is a message window where you can make contact.
WHAT WE DO KNOW: They are very well connected in media circles. This article promoting the Impeach Bannon campaign was featured on Google from Yahoo News written by no less than Dylan Stableford who is a Senior Editor. Now Yahoo may not be the Google it once was, but it is among the most viewed news sources in the English speaking world. You do not have senior editors of mega news distribution outlets promoting your enterprise without being establishment connected. The poster strategy so far is to alert their media contacts and place posters in the large media markets. Am NY just published their article on the campaign.
By getting the buzz in the large markets with their story distributed to millions, they hope to increase their followers on social media like Twitter. As of this writing they have a little over 100 followers there. Speaking of large media marketing and campaigns, the poster was designed by talented Los Angeles, mega marketing graphic production designer Jay Lorenzini.
We know the ACLU is coordinating the poster campaign’s legal needs as well. We also know that the campaign has a kind of clever Facebook page where you can see photo shopped pictures of President Trump with Steve Bannon’s Head. The anti Bannon/Trumpsters are also on Twitter and Instagram. If you love it you must follow.
Establishment versus counter-culture on the streets will continue to be one of the biggest stories affecting street culture for 2017.
