Bannon ordered Breitbart editors to ramp up attacks on Trump-backed Alabama Senate candidate: report

Former White House adviser and reinstated Breitbart executive Steve Bannon is once again calling the shots at the right-wing publication — and is reportedly pushing coverage that opposes the president’s agenda.

According to CNN, Bannon ordered Breitbart’s editors to “step up its overwhelmingly negative coverage” of Luther Strange, the Alabama Republican that President Donald Trump endorsed to replace the Senate seat that now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated when he joined the administration.

In his first major act of defiance of his former boss, Bannon has publicly supported Strange’s opponent, the controversial Judge Roy Moore.

After Bannon told Breitbart’s editors to increase their anti-Strange coverage, the site’s Washington editor Matthew Boyle reportedly told his writers that “the only story that matters until next week is Alabama.”

The primary runoff election between Strange and Moore is scheduled for September 26.

Central Park incident just one more example of white women using their status to terrorize black men: NYT’s Charles Blow

Published

on

Amy Cooper is just the latest example of white women using their privilege and femininity to terrorize black men, according to a new column from Charles Blow.

The New York Times columnist explains that a video recording of an incident involving Cooper, an investment manager, and Christian Cooper, a science editor, has a long and shameful historical precedent.

"This racial street theater against black people is an endemic, primal feature of the Republic," Blow write. "Specifically, I am enraged by white women weaponizing racial anxiety, using their white femininity to activate systems of white terror against black men. This has long been a power white women realized they had and that they exerted."
