Steve Bannon said the Irish politicians are 'by far the worst that are bought off by the EU'

"War Room" host Steve Bannon has reacted to the recent riots in Dublin, Ireland, following an attack on five people in the city.

On November 23, a man injured three schoolchildren and two adults in the city centre in a suspected knife attack.

Following the attack, demonstrators took to the streets in protest of the police, letting off flares and fireworks as clashes with riot police broke out.

Officers arrested 34 people after vehicles were set on fire and shops looted throughout the night.

Ireland's Garda chief, Drew Harris, blamed the riots on "lunatic, hooligan factions driven by a far-right ideology".

Some 500 people took part in the riot, which saw Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar condemn the attack, and said they were putting the "most vulnerable and most innocent people" in danger.

Reacting to the riots, Bannon told host Tucker Carlson that the "political class has totally outsold the people" of Ireland.

Bannon explained: "The Irish politicians are by far the worst that are bought off by the EU. They're the biggest globalists. They've sold out the sovereignty of of the Irish.

"And you're seeing a natural blowback and you're really seeing it among working class people in the cities, Irish nationals, Irish citizens whose family have been there for generations and generations and generations and have nothing to show for it, and also in the rural community. So Ireland is a powder keg.

He added: "And I think what you saw the other day in the response by the Garda, the response by the authorities was immediately to go after Conor McGregor and other folks who were saying hey we need to address this. Your proclamations are no longer good enough."

Bannon continued: "The Irish people, I think I've had a belly full of it.

"How could anyone read that as anything but an expression of of hate, right? Contempt for their working class, for the working class of Ireland. This is why Tucker, I think they're cracking down so hard.

"You've seen what they've tried to do to Viktor Orban, who's kind of become the leader of this, the political and public, intellectual leader of this. They've tried to isolate him for years.

"Although he's been right about the Ukraine war, he's been right about what happened in Germany in 2014, about the sovereignty of his country and the sovereignty of his people.

"But in Ireland, they've taken it to a next level."
