Ben Shapiro has stated multiple times that he's not racist or anti semite and he hates Bannon and got fired by him.
5. Under Bannon’s Leadership, Breitbart Openly Embraced The White Supremacist Alt-Right. Andrew Breitbart despised racism. Truly despised it. He used to brag regularly about helping to integrate his fraternity at Tulane University. He insisted that racial stories be treated with special care to avoid even the whiff of racism. With Bannon embracing Trump, all that changed. Now Breitbart has become the alt-right go-to website, with Yiannopoulos pushing white ethno-nationalism as a legitimate response to political correctness, and the comment section turning into a cesspool for white supremacist mememakers.

Following this thread. I was just asking my BFF for some examples this morning!
Interesting! Did you get any answers???
Now a lot of people have a mistaken idea of what the "Alt-Right" is.
The term "Alt-Right" was coined by Richard B Spencer.
Richard B Spencer is in fact a white nationalist who advocates for what he calls a "European ethno-state" in the United States.
It's funny that he says "accused of racism" as though there is some question as to wether or not Spencer is a racist.
All of these websites have been accused of racism.

The accusations that Bannon is a antisemite stem from statements of his wife during their divorce/custody fight.
Anti-Semitic Trump campaign CEO Stephen Bannon not a big fan of ‘whiny brat’ Jews, ex-wife says
Mary Louise Piccard said in a 2007 court declaration that Bannon didn't want their twin daughters attending the Archer School for Girls in Los Angeles because many Jewish students were enrolled at the elite institution.
"The biggest problem he had with Archer is the number of Jews that attend," Piccard said in her statement signed on June 27, 2007.
"He said that he doesn't like the way they raise their kids to be 'whiny brats' and that he didn't want the girls going to school with Jews," Piccard wrote.
"I told him that there are children who are Jewish at (a competing school), and he asked me what the percentage was. I told him that I didn't know because it wasn't an issue for me as I am not raising the girls to be either anti-Semitic or prejudiced against anyone," she wrote.
Bannon asked his ex-wife if it bothered her that a second school, the Willows Community School, used to be a Temple.
And while checking out yet another school, Bannon asked the director during a sit down why there were “so many Chanukah books in the library.”
Adding to this picture are statements that have come from people like Ben Shapiro, former Breitbart editor who resigned back in March over Breitbart's handling of the Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandowski incident.

You're a clown and a drooling idiot. I don't care in the least what you have to say. You know nothing about me, I don't care what you're sick of and posting anything to me is a waste of your time.
I'd almost call him extreme-left because he does think that white people should acknowledge their privilege. He thinks it will do some good to fingerpoint and label people as racist at every opportunity.
It's frustrating. I try to sympathize, but I cannot get him to tell me where such a tactic would lead that is good for anyone.

He appears to be rather bland and uninteresting.
