Analysis: Breitbart's Steve Bannon Leads the 'Alt Right' to the White House
Source: www.nbcnews.com...

For the last six months, Republican leaders walked a careful line supporting Donald Trump. They supported his campaign and loved his running mate, Mike Pence, but they didn't agree with his positions on banning Muslims or mass deportations, or with the far-right figures who backed them.

That line was easy enough to maintain when it was just campaign rhetoric. But now Trump is signaling that the far right wing of the party will be going with him to the White House, where it will have a chance to influence policy, as well.

Steve Bannon, former president of the incendiary Breitbart News and more recently chief executive of Trump's campaign, is taking on a role as "chief strategist and senior counselor." Bannon's ascension is the clearest sign yet that Trump will maintain his ties to the populist white nationalism that helped propel him to the White House against overwhelming opposition from party leaders and traditional media.


The alt-right is fundamentally based on White Nationalism. It is associated with white supremacy, anti feminism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and anti-Semitism.

I find this sudden turn toward mainstream White Nationalism extremely disturbing on so many levels. If our new President-elect is indeed filling the White House with people who subscribe to such hateful ideology, and are actively pushing for policies such as racial profiling and "stop and frisk", which are largely criticized as being programs that increase the racial divide and promote racial discrimination, or pushing policies to ban Muslims, or extremely aggressive policy such as mass deportation and incarceration that largely targets Hispanics....

How does any of this gel with a nation that celebrates diversity and equality?

You oppose deporting criminals who are not citizens? Oh there is no "ban Muslim policy". How many times must this be shared?


6. Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.

Suspend, on a temporary basis, immigration from some of the most dangerous and volatile regions of the world that have a history of exporting terrorism.

I see no mention of banning Muslims in his actual policies.

Frankly he has discussed uniting this country, all races, but let's ignore that(listen one minute).
youtu.be...

He has hired more women executives before it was the thing to do.

www.yahoo.com...

The fact that deportation targets Hispanics is because most illegal immigrants(very least criminal) ARE from Mexico.

I just noticed the homophobia bit.

www.washingtontimes.com...



On Sunday, at a rally in Colorado, Mr. Trump proudly held up a rainbow flag with the words “LGBT for Trump” written on it to a cheering crowd of thousands. It was an historic moment for gay equality and the Party of Lincoln as the 2016 GOP nominee for President of the United States held high the flag for gay equality. No other Republican Presidential nominee in history has embraced the LGBT community in such a loud and proud way.

It is not "Left or Right". get over it.

Left or Right are things of 30 years ago. Long dead.

Here we have just the establishment (Clinton), and an outsider against the establishment (Trump).

A totally different perspective.

Where have you been the last year of so? This country just kicked diversity and equality to the curb.

Found this earlier in my research of all things Steve Bannon and the people he's connected to.

www.npiamerica.org...

White supremecy intellectualized to appeal to modern conservatives. They hide it behind a lot of positions conservatives are strongly for.

The conservatives who aren't racist and bigoted are being played by these people and Steve Bannon into supporting things they don't.

I thought the "alt-right" was redefined by the Clinton Campaign?

How are you guys still in denial about this? Richard Spencer (a very notorious racist) coined the phrase.

Do you even realize that most people who consider themselves "alt-right", only do so because they're not religious or conservative?

Nah, Clinton created and defined the ALT LEFT. That's what all those folks wearing diaper pins on their clothes are a part of.

We are not the alt-right! The only thing we oppose is stupidity. Much like this thread.

We are just the right. We look out for ourselves.

Unlike the left who think we should look after them as well. We are not your babysitters. Take care of yourselves.

Need money get a job. With all the jobs that Obama has created in his 8 years in office it should be easy to do. Oh yeah I forgot those jobs were just one more lie by the left. Deal with it.

I know, among other things. And they seem to believe it's in favor of them.

Maybe they can seek counseling with that great Obamacare we all pay for, but can't afford to use.

What the hell is wrong with these people?

They have to know they are exaggerating and making up crap just to express their hate under the guise of all sorts of false causes.

I've seen people claiming that we are about to have death camps for Muslims, Latinos, and Blacks. They honestly believed that garbage? Are these people seriously completely insane? I guess so.

This crap is even more far fetched and unfounded than the FEMA camp paranoia over the last 20 years...

With respect, this thread is not about you, but about the people taking over the White House, and the ideology of hate and intolerance that will inevitably go mainstream because of this.

Not death camps. They're starting with Mass deportation or incarceration for 3 million people. The total number could go up to 11 million or more.

Let's keep the concerns based on reality. Reality is disurbing enough.

Your problem, like most liberals apparently, is a refusal to address actual issues and instead attempt to just label your opposition and classify them in groups, such as the alt-right.

So you sit here and erroneously suggest 60M+ people in this country are racists, white nationalists, anti-feminist, etc, but all it does is show you're digging your heels in on spouting ignorance and a continuous refusal to address who and what Trump supporters actually are.
