Donald Trump’s choice of Steve Bannon to be his chief strategist has sparked widespread denunciatiations from civil rights groups.
Bannon, who was CEO of the Trump campaign and is a member of the transition team, was chairman of Breitbart, an outlet known for its alt-right politics.
Among the headlines published by Breitbart under Bannon’s leadership:
- “Lesbian Bridezillas Bully Bridal Shop Owner Over Religious Beliefs”
- “The Solution to Online ‘Harassment’ Is Simple: Women Should Log Off”
- “Republican spoiler, renegade Jew”
Even conservative radio host Glenn Beck has described Bannon as “a terrifying man” who has “a clear tie to white nationalists.”
Some of the best tweets on the subject:
I'm tweetless–until now. I've been unable to find the 140 characters to comment on Bannon. Just remember the motto: "Personnel is policy."

Bannon calls feminists "a bunch of dykes". The correct term for a group of feminists is "your worst nightmare."
