The Breitbart News Network executive chairman and current White House chief strategist is often credited with spearheading the new alt-right movement. A long-contentious figure, Bannon is seen by many promoting the #FireBannon hashtag as the most representative person in the White House of the white supremacists who showed up in Charlottesville, where one person was killed when one of the attendees drove a car into counter-protesters (via Al Jazeera). However, currently, there are no reports that show Bannon is directly linked to any of the events in Charlottesville this weekend, though many blame Breitbart News under his watch for inciting racial tensions in America.
White Supremacy has no place in America. Let’s start with the White House. #FireBannon

Just walked into a Christmas store in NY and someone arranged all the elf arms in nazi salutes. I’m sick to my stomach. ???? #FireBannon
