The origins of the alternative right can be found in thinkers as diverse as Oswald Spengler, H.L Mencken, Julius Evola, Sam Francis, and the paleoconservative movement that rallied around the presidential campaigns of Pat Buchanan. The French New Right also serve as a source of inspiration for many leaders of the alt-right.
The media empire of the modern-day alternative right coalesced around Richard Spencer during his editorship of Taki’s Magazine. In 2010, Spencer founded AlternativeRight.com, which would become a center of alt-right thought.
Alongside other nodes like Steve Sailer’s blog, VDARE and American Renaissance, AlternativeRight.com became a gathering point for an eclectic mix of renegades who objected to the established political consensus in some form or another. All of these websites have been accused of racism.
Hillary Clinton has just claimed that all criticism of America’s immigration disaster is inspired by Alt Right “racism,” so we feel free to mention the obvious truth: Kaine, and all immigration enthusiasm, is ultimately motivated by treason—to America; and to its Founding stock.
The politicians implementing this policy of dispossession against American whites can only be viewed as an occupying government. Those who go along with it, especially Republicans, should be considered collaborators. And the response to accusations of “racism” is the, entirely accurate, charge of treason.
Natural conservatives can broadly be described as the group that the intellectuals above were writing for. They are mostly white, mostly male middle-American radicals, who are unapologetically embracing a new identity politics that prioritises the interests of their own demographic.
The conservative instinct, as described by Haidt, includes a preference for homogeneity over diversity, for stability over change
But natural conservatives have other concerns: chiefly, the preservation of their own tribe and its culture.
The alt-right’s intellectuals would also argue that culture is inseparable from race. The alt-right believe that some degree of separation between peoples is necessary for a culture to be preserved. A Mosque next to an English street full of houses bearing the flag of St. George, according to alt-righters, is neither an English street nor a Muslim street — separation is necessary for distinctiveness.
Why “1488”? It’s a reference to two well-known Neo Nazi slogans, the first being the so-called 14 Words: “We Must Secure The Existence Of Our People And A Future For White Children.” The second part of the number, 88, is a reference to the 8th letter of the alphabet – H. Thus, “88” becomes “HH” which becomes “Heil Hitler.”
Anything associated as closely with racism and bigotry as the alternative right will inevitably attract real racists and bigots. Calmer members of the alternative right refer darkly to these people as the “1488ers,” and for all their talk of there being “no enemies to the right,” it’s clear from the many conversations we’ve had with alt-righters that many would rather the 1488ers didn’t exist.

Who is Hillary Clinton?
Sorry, I'm not on Twitter.
No one important, you're not missing much, I think its rantings resultant from the initial onset of dementia for the old biddy.
She likes her conspiracies - she started this one about the alt-right.
Crazy cat lady x 10 (no offense to nice crazy cat ladies)
I started a twitter account this month under my ATS handle and have been firing off tweets to The Don, Hills, Shapiro and anyone else I can stick it to. Bloody good fun. Keeps me well on top of the latest shenananananananigans.
There are many things that separate the alternative right from old-school racist skinheads (to whom they are often idiotically compared), but one thing stands out above all else: intelligence. Skinheads, by and large, are low-information, low-IQ thugs driven by the thrill of violence and tribal hatred. The alternative right are a much smarter group of people — which perhaps suggests why the Left hates them so much. They’re dangerously bright.

Have I defended BLM?
But let me get your logic straight...the Alt-Right is ok to you because you think BLM is worse?
