The alt-right is turning its back on Steve Bannon
The knives are officially out between Steve Bannon and President Donald Trump. And if Bannon, who once described his website Breitbart as a “platform for the alt-right,” thought that the loose network of white nationalists, misogynists and neo-Nazis were going to have his back, he was mistaken.
“To us, Bannon has been done as an ideological force for a long time,” wrote Evan McLaren, the executive director of the National Policy Institute, the group founded by alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer. “Bannon is only relevant to the extent he makes money flow, to causes and candidates.”
