First, the group defended Trump's choice of Steven Bannon as his chief White House strategist. Bannon has come under fire for his connection to the white supremacist "alt-right" movement during his tenure as head of the Breitbart News Network.
According to a link I am citing yet again from the Huffington Post:
At Breitbart, Bannon helped make the hardline populist website a go-to resource for white nationalists and the alt-right, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which monitors hate groups.
. . . Breitbart has propagated conspiracy theories, like Planned Parenthood having Nazi ties or Clinton aide Huma Abedin being a spy for Saudi Arabia. The website traffics in misogynist and racist stories; it frames women who push back against harassment or gender bias as weak and incompetent and portrays people of color and immigrants as inherently criminal.
The Family Research Council played down this information by pretty much ignoring it in the organization's praise of Bannon's selection.
