HuffPo goes full alt-Left on Bannon ouster, uses not one, but two racial ‘slurs’ as headlines

When Huffington Post editor-in-chief Lydia Polgreen approved and even posted via her Twitter account a headline entitled “Goy, Bye!” in reference to former-White House chief strategist Steve Bannon’s ouster on Friday afternoon, surely she suspected at least a few raised eyebrows.

Was the headline, reportedly written by front-page editor Chloe Angyal, meant to somehow troll Bannon because of all the baseless ‘white nationalist’ accusations that have come from the Left about him, or was it something even more sinister, a reference to Bannon’s Jewish enemies inside the White House, Jared Kushner and Gary Cohn?

Since the word “goy” happens to be a derogatory slur for non-Jews, as opposed to the more technical term “gentile,” some people couldn’t help but wonder.

Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian recalled a time when the Huffington Post was concerned about antisemitism:

Then he posted this Twitter classic:

Father, daughter kicked off flight after crew claims they overheard ‘threatening’ private conversation

The Anti-Defamation League, not often one to find offense from the Left, took issue with the headline, with ADL chief Jonathan Greenblatt tweeting, “Not sure your intent, but strikes me as poor taste at best, very offensive at worst.”

The headline even had Keith Olbermann asking “WTF?”

Polgreen doubled down, at first.

But then, the Huffington Post editor backed off.

So then, she changed it to this!

‘I feel jacked up … I’ve got my hands back on my weapons’: Bannon clears things up for salivating press

Which, naturally, drew even more criticism, albeit from a different place.

Hey, as President Trump has learned all too well, you can’t make everyone happy – so might as well be yourself, even if you’re a Leftist “fake-news” outlet.
