Gorka Joins Far-Right Website That Published ‘10 Things I Hate About Jews’

Sebastian Gorka, the former aide to President Trump whose ties to a Nazi-linked group the Forward exposed last year, has joined the far-right Canadian news outlet The Rebel, LobeLog reported.

The Rebel, often referred to as “Breitbart North,” has been accused of publishing anti-Semitic content. The website last year published a video titled “Ten Things I Hate About Jews.” The video was later retitled. The site’s owner, Ezra Levant, is Jewish.

“Fasten your seatbelts,” The Rebel wrote in its headline announcing Gorka’s hiring.

The Forward reported last year that Gorka, a former Breitbart contributor who had risen to become Trump’s top counter-terrorism advisor, was a member of the Vitézi Rend, a group founded by the Nazi’s Hungarian allies. Gorka had also publicly expressed support for a racist and anti-Semitic Hungarian militia.

Gorka resigned from the administration in August.

The Rebel’s co-founder, Brian Lilley resigned last August over what he described as the website’s close ties to the “alt-right” and its coverage of white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia. Levant denied that his website was affiliated with the alt-right.
