Reasoning: Extreme Right, Propaganda, Conspiracy, Hate Group
Notes: The Remnant is a Traditionalist Catholic newspaper published twice a month in the United States. Although its editors are not affiliated with any particular institute or traditionalist group, the paper is sympathetic to Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and the Society of St. Pius X. Founded in 1968, it is the oldest Traditionalist Catholic newspaper in the United States.
The Remnant is considered an active “Radical Traditionalist Catholic” hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. According to the SPLC the Remnant is intolerant toward Jews through Holocaust denial and the claim that when the Anti-Christ arrives he will be a Jew. The Remnant also holds anti-LGBTQ views. Further, they endorse the New World Order conspiracy theory, however they believe the New World Order is run by Zionists. The editors of The Remnant reject the claim that they are a hate group.
In review, The Remnant has an extreme right-wing bias in story selection that always favors the right. They strongly endorse Donald Trump and his policies. The Remnant uses loaded words in headlines/articles and typically doesn’t use hyperlink sourcing. Further, The Remnant does not support the consensus of science regarding climate change and even goes so far as to call it a hoax. Overall, we rate The Remnant Questionable based on extreme right bias, promotion of propaganda and conspiracy theories, and others labeling them a hate group. (D. Van Zandt 12/09/2017)
