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.”
