The left has declared Breitbart.com a racist web site because they say it is an alt-right (whatever that is) web site. They have also declared alt-right (whatever that is) to mean white supremacist. Steve Bannon led Breitbart.com. Bannon’s appointment as Trump chief strategist was applauded by someone in the KKK. Ergo, Bannon is proven to be a white supremacist and Trump is a racist for appointing him.
Did you know that Hillary Clinton was publicly endorsed by the Communist Party USA? Accordingly she must be a communist. Right? The media didn’t even bother to notice and spiked the story of the endorsement to cover it up. Ergo, the media is communist. Right?
Let’s hear it for the double standard and its guilt by association. If you voted for Trump, you are a racist and likely also a white supremacist. If you voted for Hillary, you must be a communist.
Absurdity ad nauseum.
CNN’s Cooper clashes with Warren: ‘No evidence’ Bannon is a white supremacist
From The Hill: BY MARK HENSCH – 11/30/16
CNN host Anderson Cooper and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) clashed Wednesday over whether one of President-elect Donald Trump’s key appointments is a white supremacist.
Warren ignited the encounter by accusing Stephen Bannon, Trump’s incoming chief strategist and senior counselor, of practicing the racist ideology.
“[Trump’s] got as his strategic adviser someone who’s a white supremacist,” she said of Bannon, the former chairman of Breitbart News, on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360.”
“Wait a minute, there’s no evidence he’s a white supremacist,” Cooper said, interrupting Warren. “Obviously, there are people who are white supremacists who support Donald Trump and support Breitbart or Steve Bannon.”
Warren audibly exhaled at Cooper’s remarks before defending her criticism of Bannon, who was also Trump’s presidential campaign CEO.
“Steve Bannon has certainly associated himself with white supremacists,” said Warren. “Will you go that far?”
“I don’t know that you can say, though, that he’s a white supremacist,” Cooper retorted.
“This is a guy whose appointment is applauded by the [Ku Klux Klan],” Warren added of Bannon. “He’s associated himself with white supremacists, is that close enough?
“What Donald Trump is doing, so far, is that he’s said he’s going to go forward on bigotry and he’s going to go forward on Wall Street insiders. I think this is a real problem for the American people.”
Trump announced Bannon’s future role earlier this month, sparking outcry from critics who object to his links to Breitbart.
Bannon has described the news website as a platform for the “alt-right,” a far-right group that often overlaps with racism, white nationalism and populism.
Trump defended Bannon last week, vowing he “wouldn’t even think” about hiring someone who is bigoted.
