Avodah was dismayed to hear that Steve Bannon, CEO of Breitbart News, has been appointed to White House Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor. Bannon himself has described Breitbart as “the platform of the Alt-Right,” a movement rife with white nationalism, racism, and anti-Semitism.
Cheryl Cook, Executive Director of Avodah, released the following statement:
“As an organization that works with many of the most vulnerable people in our country, we are deeply concerned about Bannon’s appointment as Chief Strategist. There is no room for fear-mongering and bigotry in our leadership. We ask that Republican Congressional leaders to stand up and demand that Bannon’s appointment be rescinded.”
