Not a word of this is anywhere close to true, and anybody who reads Quillette knows that perfectly well. Quillette is a politically non-partisan source that prints some authors from the left, some from the right, and some non-partisan. It publishes articles on many topics ranging from science to politics in the USA and other countries to book and art reviews. I read the blog of Jerry Coyne, a very liberal biology professor from the University of Chicago, and he approvingly links to Quillette articles quite often; in fact, an article written by him is on the front page of Quillette right now, as are a personal narrative about leaving Mormonism and many other articles which easily refute your claim that it's a right-wing source.

As for your claim that Quillette is associated with or similar to the KKK or Nazis, normally someone who makes such a claim would be expected to provide evidence. Needless to say, you can't do so. No member of the KKK, any Nazi group, or any other racist group has ever written a word for Quillette, nor has any white supremacist material ever been published there.
