"Mr. Bannon, and his toxic [far-right, white ethno-nationalist] ideology . . "
I don't know Mr Bannon, but I have a lot of sympathy with "ethno-nationalism", which the NYT so despises, along with the whole notion of white, i.e. ethnic European, identity.
White nationalism might have spared Europe centuries of civil war, culminating in WW1, WW2 and the Holocaust. It might also have spared America its own civil war.
White nationalism, as I see it, has nothing to do with white supremacism and is the very opposite of Nazism, which, insanely and self-destructively, divided Europeans into different races, some of which it sought to exterminate. The Nazis were not motivated by racial hatred, but by racial SELF-hatred.
In overreaction to the evil of Nazism and the Holocaust, western academics, and with them its ruling elites, embraced the exact, but equally extreme, opposite ideology of post-racial multiculturalism, which denies the importance - even the very existence - of race altogether (even when it is real and manifest), along with the Orwellian oxymoronic absurdity of "multi-ethnic (multi-racial and multicultural) nationhood".
I'm not suggesting that the NYT love those it sees as enemies, e.g. white nationalists, but that it ceases to hate and demonise them the way it does, and to seek to understand them instead. They are not as evil, nor you at the NYT and the Southern Poverty Law Center as good, as you imagine.
See my BLOG, where I elaborate on these ideas.
