You will see an awful lot of rhetoric about Steve Bannon being an alt-right white supremacist. They have called him anti-semitic. You will also see that he is a nationalist and is very opposed to globalism. This makes him a big target for lefts of all persuasions. Can any of this be backed up?

With that said, as I wrote at The Washington Post in August, Bannon has openly embraced the racist and anti-Semitic alt-right – he called his Breitbart “the platform of the alt-right.” Milo Yiannopoulos, the star writer at the site, is an alt-right popularizer, even as he continuously declares ……..
