The term “alt-right” was coined by the late white nationalist Richard Spencer in 2014.
He defined the movement as an anti-globalist and anti-immigrant movement based on a “white ethno-state” that is antithetical to Western civilization.
Spencer, who died in 2017, is best known for creating the white nationalist online magazine The Daily Stormer.
It has become a rallying point for white nationalists, and some conservatives consider it the best-known racist website.
Spencer is credited with creating a movement that has become the main source of political news and has played a role in the presidential campaign.
Now, it is under increasing scrutiny from some conservatives.
One of Spencer’s most prominent followers, author David Horowitz, is calling on the Federal Trade Commission to take action against Breitbart News, which published an article claiming that it was running a fake news site, The Daily Caller, that featured a fake Breitbart News article.
Horowitz also recently told the New York Times that he believed alt-righters had gained traction in recent years by creating a white nationalist “echo chamber.”
Horowitz has accused Breitbart News of fostering a “hate space” that attracts alt-rights and white supremacists.
Horowitz said that the article, which was written by a former Breitbart staffer, was meant to “discredit” Breitbart News and that the alt-left was not part of the Breitbart organization.
Horowitz told The Times that the story was “completely untrue” and that he had not contacted Bannon directly to “challenge his credibility.”
“This is a white supremacist hate site that’s run by a white supremacists guy.
He’s got the power to destroy our country, but he’s got none of the credibility to do it,” Horowitz said.
Horowitz’s comments came as the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on Breitbart News on Wednesday.
The committee is looking into whether Breitbart News violated federal law by publishing false information.
Breitbart News has not responded to The Times’ request for comment.
Earlier this year, Breitbart News ran a series of articles titled “Trump and Bannon: Who Is The Real Anti-Trump?”
In one article, the website claimed that Trump had hired former Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist.
The article also claimed that Bannon had a “secret meeting with [Trump’s] chief strategist” to discuss how to undermine Trump’s agenda.
Bannon was fired from the White House last month.
“There’s a lot of people that are saying this is just a fringe movement that’s not very serious,” Horowitz told the Times.
“The truth is, they are very serious.
The House Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Breitbart News for alleged illegal political advertising, has also been probing the company’s influence on Trump’s election. “
They’re going through the motions of trying to get rid of a person that they believe is doing a bad job, but they’re not going to let him be replaced by someone who is doing something different.”
The House Judiciary Committee, which is investigating Breitbart News for alleged illegal political advertising, has also been probing the company’s influence on Trump’s election.
The hearing focused on how Breitbart News helped spread disinformation about the Clintons and the Affordable Care Act during the 2016 election.
Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told The Associated Press that he would ask the FTC to investigate Breitbart News.
“We want to see whether the FTC has the authority to take any action,” Gowdy said.
“You don’t have to be a lawyer to see that this is a very serious issue and we want to make that determination in the best interest of American consumers and the taxpayers of this country.”
Horowitz told a Breitbart News reporter earlier this month that he plans to speak to the FTC about his allegations that Breitbart News is promoting racist ideologies, and that Breitbart has a “very clear line” that no one can take his site down.
“I’m going to tell you right now, if they’re willing to go after Breitbart News in this way, they’re taking us down,” Horowitz responded.
“And if they want to go into any other sites, that’s fine.
But if they do take us down, I’m going into the FTC and I’m sure they’re looking into it.”
