Anti-Semitism in the White House: Stephen Bannon, Donald Trump and the Alt-Right
"The alt-right's anti-Semitism is not a new animal, but one that simply ports over Nazi propaganda to sleek graphic design and snarky audio skits. This rebranding has allowed the alt-right to be seen as iconoclastic, opposed to "political correctness" and somewhat conservative, all of which is a mischaracterization. It is not a situation in which a few extremists have given the alt-right a "bad name," but rather a situation in which a few moderates have added their name to a fascist movement. It is critical to see the alt-right simply as the latest stage in a white nationalist project that goes through various attempts at messaging, rhetoric and appearance."
