Breitbart News continues to fight back against the media and push back against conservative religious organizations.
In addition to its own website, Breitbart News also runs several news sites, including the “Faith and Freedom” website and the “Conservatism Today” blog, which publishes articles and commentary critical of mainstream Christian organizations.
On Friday, Breitbart’s news site, “Faith Outreach,” published an op-ed by Robert Spencer, founder of the white supremacist “alt-right” movement.
In the piece, Spencer describes himself as a “libertarian,” but in the eyes of mainstream conservatives, he is the “conservative” of the two.
Breitbart News has been critical of Spencer, calling him a “self-described fascist,” a “conspiracy theorist” and a “bigot” who “claims that his ‘political agenda’ is a conspiracy to steal America away from its Jews.”
Spencer wrote that he would not endorse Donald Trump, because he is “a bigot, a racist and a bigot.”
But on Thursday, the Breitbart News website published an article titled “Why Is the Christian Right So Afraid of Donald Trump?”
It wrote that Spencer, who is “the leader of the Alt-Right,” was “a white nationalist, anti-Semite, Islamophobe, and conspiracy theorist.”
The article claimed that “conservative Christians have been terrified of Trump” because they are “anointed as the new savior of the nation” and because Trump’s campaign rhetoric “demonizes and demonizes them.”
Spencer was among those who spoke out against Trump after the Republican presidential candidate announced he was running for president.
“The alt-right is a white nationalist movement that advocates for a white ethno-state in America,” Spencer wrote.
“It seeks to bring the white race back to the White House.
It seeks to destroy Western civilization.
It wants to destroy the U.S. as a nation.
It is a movement of white supremacists.”
The Breitbart article went on to say that the movement “demands that we all embrace the alt-Right.”
“We must all work together to destroy this movement,” the article concluded.
The article was shared widely on social media and was written by the former editor-in-chief of Breitbart News, Matthew Boyle, who was previously a senior editor at the conservative outlet.
Breitbart Editor-in and Chief Alex Marlow defended Spencer in an interview with “Fox & News” host Sean Hannity.
Marlow said Spencer “is a real, legitimate American patriot and patriot, but he is not a Christian, and he is no longer a member of the Christian right.”
Marlow also said the article was not in response to “any real concerns about Trump.”
“There’s nothing to see here,” Marlow added.
“I’m not saying that this is not what the Christian left wants.
They want to destroy Donald Trump.
But this article is a reaction to Donald Trump’s statements about the alt right, and we’re not going to be commenting on it because we want to protect the alt left from being attacked.
We’re not interested in debating whether Trump is a Christian.
This is not our job.
We are here to protect Christianity, and that’s the mission.”
