The central unifying dimension of the far right extremists called the "alt-Right" is white nationalism: the idea that America should be a "white ethnostate." To get there, alt-Right leaders propose segregating, expelling, and even killing non-whites, Jews, and Muslims. Nazi and KKK groups are welcomed into the alt-Right ranks, and Heil Hitler salutes are common at their gatherings. Alt-Right leaders largely deny fundamental human and civic equality, and thus do not agree with the Constitution. They take the American flag as a symbol of white America, but have no common agreement about political structures and foreign policy. If anything, they see the the fundamental freedoms and protections of the U.S. Constitution as a barrier to achieving their goals. After graduating from Harvard Business School, Steve Bannon went to work as a specialist on mergers and corporate take-overs for financial investment bank Goldman Sachs. After aligning with the losing side in a high-stakes executive power struggle, Bannon (and others) had to resign. He began creating political films for a Tea Party audience. After 9/11, Bannon fell under the sway of historical nonsense that prophesied a coming world war between the Judeo-Christian West and Islam. Bannon then turned Andrew Breitbart's website into a platform, he says, for the alt-Right and brought that movement into the mainstream as he aligned the website behind Trump's campaign. Whether or not he is personally racist or anti-Semitic, He now serves as the Trump's main strategist and spin-master: In this role, he is the channel through which the extremist alt-Right exerts influence in the White House. PRESIDENT TRUMP: you crossed a moral and political Red Line when you hired Bannon and others aligned with the alt-Right. Those who have facilitated and nurtured the unification of the anti-American alt-Right extremists have no place in the highest reaches of government. We are totally opposed to the inclusion of hate in any form in the White House--no White House staff or advisors should support extremist views that seek to undermine Constitutional protections and common decency. I pledge to boycott all Trump golf courses, clubs, restaurants, hotels, and towers until you recognize that the employment of those aligned with violent white supremacists is anti-American. We cannot patronize Trump facilities with our money while, in your day job, you employ those who would undermine American values in the White House. We will continue until you fire Bannon and his alt-Right fellow travelers. We trust you will soon realize the mistake, recognize the moral and political Red Line that you crossed, and re-establish America as the world's leading democracy and model of a tolerant, secure, and confident society.
