John Podhoretz Slams Steve Bannon for ‘Foul Extremist’ Worldview

Neo-conservative editor John Podhoretz slammed newly minted White House supremo Steve Bannon for promoting bigotry at Breitbart News.

Writing in the journal Commentary, Podhoretz detailed how Bannon turned a conservative news outlet into a purveyor of hate speech.

“He is an aider and abetter of foul extremist views, including anti-Semitic ones,” Podhoretz said. “He used the site to promote the alt-right, which has retailed anti-Semitism.”

Among other attacks on enemies real and perceived, Breitbart slammed neo-conservative Bill Kristol as a “renegade Jew” for refusing to back Donald Trump’s presidential bid.
