Stephen K. Bannon, president-elect Trump's Chief Strategist

Yet another point has to be made: when critics claim Breitbart News, and then by extension Bannon, is either anti-Semitic, racist or vile because some of Breitbart’s readers are, one must admit that reading the talkbacks of any major – and some quite minor – media outlets would render those outlets anti-Semitic or racists, using the same standard.

From the available evidence it does not appear that Steve Bannon is either an anti-Semite or a proponent of white nationalism or racism. As Joel Pollak said on CNN Monday evening, “the worst thing Steve Bannon has done is win the White House.” And that really seems to be what is animating the witch hunt against Steve Bannon; the impotent rage of those who wanted “anyone but Trump.”
