This weekend, just down the street from the White House, a group who identify as members of the alt-right held a rally in support of the president-elect.
There is video from the event. In the closing speech the crowd begins chanting “Heil Trump!” And some can be see doing the Nazi salute.
The speech itself also included popular Nazi phrases and propaganda.
The Holocaust Museum, which is also a few blocks from this meeting, released a statement about the rally and the overwhelming awfulness of it all.
So, literal Nazis gathering and chanting for Trump, freaked out yet?
Chief white nationalist
The summary: Bannon is a white supremacist, anti-semite, misogynist and he should be no where near the White House.
Bannon was the former executive chairman of Breitbart “News.”
A conservative news site aimed at white nationalists.
Some prime headline examples:
The solution to online ‘harassment’ is simple: Women should log off
Bill Kristol: Republican spoiler, renegade Jew
Hoist it high and proud: The Confederate flag proclaims a glorious heritage
“Would you rather your child had feminism or cancer?”

Even Glenn Beck doesn’t like the guy
Bannon calls himself a leader of the alt-right. The alt-right is just a new more ‘acceptable’ name for white supremacist. White nationalist groups are thrilled at the appointment, and really anything that thrills them should make the rest of us wary.
Southern Poverty Law Center described Bannon as being on the ‘extremist fringe’
By the way SPLC is an organization that tracks hate groups and hate crimes. This is what they said about the alt-right,
a loose set of far-right ideologies at the core of which is a belief that ‘white identity’ is under attack through policies prioritizing multiculturalism, political correctness and social justice and must be preserved, usually through white-identified online communities and physical ethno-states.
Consider calling your representative to denounce Bannon, and demand his removal.
