The National Democratic Party, a far-right political group based in Germany, has named Steve Bannon, an advisor to President Donald Trump, the winner of it’s Heinrich Himmler Award.
According to a press release, the award honors politicians for pushing far-right policies.
“Steve Bannon is the brains behind many of the Trump administration’s policies, such as the Muslim ban and the deportation of illegal immigrants,” said the release. “These policies are ridding the United States of undesirables. We only wish our politicians in the Fatherland could adopt these same policies.”
Bannon, who has been described as Trump’s brain, formerly served as CEO of Breitbart, turning it into a hotbed of white nationalism, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
“Breitbart went hardcore when he was running it,” said Andrew Anglin, proprietor of The Daily Stormer in an interview with Nordfront Radio, a Swedish neo-Nazi radio program. “It is still hardcore now. It really changed from being this kind of basic cuckservative type website to being this, I mean, the articles that they publish about blacks in America and about Muslims in Europe, it’s basically stuff that you would read on the Daily Stormer.”
During divorce proceedings, Bannon’s third ex-wife accused him of making anti-Semitic statements.
