Breitbart ontpopt zich als medium van extreemrechts

Is Becoming the Media Arm of the 'Alt-Right'?
Door Stephan Piggot, Southern Poverty Law Center, 28 april 2016
Since its founding in 2007, Breitbart News Network has grown to become one of the most popular news outlets on the right.

Over the past year however, the outlet has undergone a noticeable shift toward embracing ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Race-baiting ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideas – all key tenets making up an emerging racist ideology known as the “Alt-Right.”

The Alt-Right is a loose set of far-right ideologies at the core of which is a belief that “white identity” is under attack through policies prioritizing multiculturalism, political correctness and social justice [...].

[...] Breitbart recently published a lengthy defense of the Alt-Right, claiming the white nationalists such as Richard Spencer and Jared Taylor who created the ideology "have been accused of racism," choosing to ignore the well-documented openly-racist views.

What Fuels Trump-Supporting Twitter Trolls?
Examining the identity politics that drive Trump backers to harrass Jewish writers online
Door Armin Rosen, Tablet Mag, 4 mei 2016
[...] The Trump supporters’ attitudes towards right-leaning Jewish commentators who oppose their candidate is a vivid illustration of why the real estate mogul has galvanized right-wingers who, until a few months ago, appeared to be well outside the conservative mainstream. For Trump’s alt-right fans, Jewish conservatives who oppose Trump epitomize much of what the movement around their candidate is supposed to be cleansing from the right wing and the American political scene more generally.
Breitbart's Anti-Semitic Attack on Bill Kristol
Door Conor Friedersdorf, The Atlantic, 16 mei 2016
The popular right-wing website labels a neoconservative intellectual a “renegade Jew” for opposing Donald Trump.
En tweets van Jeet Heer (van The New Republic) op 16 mei:
The anti-Semitic dimensions of Trumpism haven't been getting the attention they merit.
David Horowitz wrote that Breitbart thing [het artikel over Bill Kristol met "Joodse verrader" in de kop, zie hierboven; K]. One of the best things that happened to American left was Horowitz's turn to the right.
It's an attempt to fuse white nationalism (i.e. "America first") with Zionism by targeting antiTrump Jews. Very ugly.
Consider the implications of Breitbart/Horowitz: if someone as right-wing as Kristol is a 'renegade Jew' what about majority of USA Jews.
"Renegade Jew" is foretaste of the really anti-Semitic stabbed-in-the-back myths we'll see when Trump loses in fall.
Van het laatste geven twee Trump-fans meteen een voorproefje, zoals Heer in subtweets laat zien:

Het is hardnekkige propaganda van neonazi's en andere extreemrechtsen dat (linkse) joden het 'blanke ras' te gronde willen richten door middel van immigratie uit streken waar mensen wonen met een donkere huidskleur.

Lieden als David Horowitz spelen dan ook een gevaarlijk spel betreffende de groep mensen met wie zij hun afkomst delen.

Geert Wilders schreef in januari een opiniestuk voor Breitbart.

Trump’s success is the media’s failure
Door Rula Jebreal, Sister-hood, 27 april 2016
The U.S. media should be asking itself some tough questions about the escalating division and violence around the Trump presidential campaign. Not only has our national media failed to recognize the social crisis fuelling the electorate’s rebellion against establishment candidates, it has also failed to confront the unacceptable, un-American racism and bigotry of a campaign which has been given outsize daily coverage because of the commercial gain to be made in exploiting its prurient entertainment appeal.

Rechte Allianzen: Was hat Trump mit den Identitären zu tun?
Door Edith Meinhart,, 8 september 2016

[...]  Die Identitären und Trump teilen ein Faible für die Medienplattform "Breitbart News" [...] Wer hier nach "Identitarians" und "Austria" sucht, wird schnell fündig. Die Online-Berichte lesen sich teilweise wie Pressemeldungen der patriotischen Jugendbewegung [...]  sie [werden] als "hipster right Identitarians" oder - noch harmloser - "Austrian Identitarian youth group" bezeichnet. Die Berichte über ihre Aktionen sind wie Heldengeschichten verfasst, ausgeschmückt mit Videomitschnitten und reißerischen Tweets des Wiener Identitären Martin Sellner.

4chan: The Skeleton Key to the Rise of Trump
Door Dale Beran,, 14 februari 2017

Trump’s younger supporters know he’s an incompetent joke; in fact, that’s why they support him.
[...] [Milo] Yiannopoulos has inverted what has actually happened to make his audience feel good. Men who have retreated to video games and internet porn can now characterize their helpless flight as an empowered conscious choice to reject women for something else. In other words, it justifies a lifestyle which in their hearts they previously regarded helplessly as a mark of shame.
