The alt-right is Alex Jones and his ilk. David Icke, Breitbart, Beck, Limbaugh, the nutters, the WBC, the Agenda-21 nail-biters, the people who think FEMA camps are for rounding us all up and killing us or 're-educating' us. The ones who insist that democratic socialists (and democrats in general) are "Commies!" ---- those people. If the shoe fits, you're in the club.

They get you all riled up over nothing. So - if you are all riled up and think Trump is a presidential gift from God, then -- you are the alt-right.

I keep hoping this place will rise above the fray. See theantediluvian's excellent post above -- it deserves an applause and many more stars for telling it exactly how it is.


If the only sources you feel are reliable are: The Gateway Pundit, The Conservative Treehouse, Weazel Zippers, Breitbart, WND, Infowars/Prison Planet and a host of wordpress blogs with "patriot" in the name, you've probably been mainlining alt-right propaganda for years. Thanks Drudge!

The whole thing was a tactical fail by Hillary: she lumped Breitbart, the alt.right, Milo Yiannopolous , Alex Jones into one group, labeled them "white supremacists" and went on to blame Putin to be behind it.


Fail because:

- even her own followers don t know what the alt.right is, so why make it a topic?
- none of the named above are "white supremacists"
- none of the above are in any way connected to Putin
- Milo and AJ are both self-loving media guys who litteraly live for attention and clicks/views/subscribers - they love the attention they get
- all in all people are sick of the whole cry-wolf-shout-racist
- and last but not least: "Stronger together" is her slogan, but her whole tactics are "Repblicans are racists mmmkey" and she split the Democratic party against Bernie, so who is dividing here?

According to wikipedia it is a ambiguous group with no defined ideology, leadership, organization, etc.

It originated on 4chan, where groups would post memes. They are credited for creating the term 'cuckservative'.

There is very little information about alt-right, until recently when the liberal hate machine began there massive propaganda campaign to demonize anyone who does not subscribe to the two party system.

It seems that all different types of people are incorporated into this group, because it's not really a group.

It's pretty much the boogey-man, a 4chan group that posts memes has been propelled into the heights of villainy as ISIS.

Just keep in mind that the people attacking and demonizing the alt right are the same people who openly support BLM, a racist hate group with a history of racist actions and violence.

The Alt Right keeps evolving, it's not a "movement" if you can call them that, completely defined by now, however, some common characteristics have already been defined, Anti PC being one of them.

Wow. Just wow! Now even Rush is part of it. You forgot in list Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Bill OReilly, Anne Coulter, and every other opponent of Hillary.


Following that, I'm mostly clear now it "Alt-Right" really is (which isn't the folks I just now typed):

I think the alt right are just people who have woken up to what is going on. Who are against the establishment both left and right. Who have had too much shoved down their throats too fast and STILL believe in the constitution. Alt right is beginning to include more independents and some on the left. It is not something you can label and ascribe qualities to. It is an America that is fed up with the status quo.


Oh, hey, BW, you forgot to add your category definition, where my underlying argument herein is that if you can't then it ins't even a real 'thing'. I'll just be holding my breath now, please hurry...

Well, interestingly enough.. that thread of yours The Nu-Nazis is basically alt-right in its criticism.

It's just a reaction to the hegemony of cultural Marxism and it's legacy of twisted political correctness.

The movement has only been around for a few years at most, a lot of people are coming to the same conclusions independently because of the political climate with political correctness. It's only natural.

Sorry OP, I normally like your posts but how is your 'short comment' an opening post? I have never heard of Alt-right [seriously], so to me none of the comments here make sense. It would be nice when people make OPs to imagine those who may have no idea about the subject and give a short overview, maybe with some links, followed by an opinion.
Thanks.


Aside from running the tern thru the Google to see a bazillion MSM hit pieces on the subject come up, I've been at a loss over what this noise is myself. Hillary throwing the term, and just as fast I see the resident 'not-Hillary-trolls' flinging this around here, so figured what better way to enlighten myself/others to this noise while running strategy to let these label mongers prove how fake 'their' label is or is not. So far its working out as I suspected it would....

Oh, and it was late night, beers, open mic boredom killing whatever I was up to.

There are several alt-right personalities on YouTube who are constantly destroying sjw, and left Wingers in debates. I knew after seeing all that they would be demonized by the media and by democrats and sure enough I was right.

Alt-Right is anyone who disagrees with the leftist progressive ideology.

That is crap.

I couldn't care less about BLM, they are just as bad. Alt-right is the lunatic fringe. BLM is a mob, and so are Trump rally-goers.

The "alt-right" are people who are out of touch with reality, and get their kicks fearmongering and making gullible readers hysterical, irrational, and full of false ideas.

Basically any republican that isn't a Mitt Romney or Lindsey Graham style of republican is alt right. A mischievous dissident fraction of the party is part of it. Im alt right, I could care less about religious policy, abortion , gay marriage and a whole host of stances that have ruined the republican party. There is no racism but we will call out hypocrisy. We want legalization of cannabis, freedom of speech and we aren't your stuffy religious type of conservative.

Um, no category?

Being one the most articulate leftist's around, and the most descriptive anybody in this entire thread so far....

Are you capable of actually categorizing what this "thing" is and is not? Or is the subject, Hillary, and your looooong post, just about label attaching and smearing the opposition to PC / Hillary????

All of those things you just mentioned are ANATHEMA to the alt-right. They want the opposite. They want theocracy, outlawed abortion and no gays, they want no cannabis, no free-thinkers to speak up, they detest the "educated" and think all 'educated' people have been brainwashed by some mythical "cabal" ---- when it is they who have been brainwashed -- first by religion, then by conservative crap-spewers, and finally, by right-wing tabloid sensationalist websites that peddle the same trash.

You are a liberal -- congratulations. Don't associate yourself with alt-right, you aren't one of them.

a reply to: BuzzyWigs Just as bad ? Are You insane ? The alt right doesn't chant kill cops and pigs in a blanket and destroy free speech. Yeah the alt right shows dissidence and pisses people off and they should be pissed if someones ideas offend them. The alt right isn't a bunch of snowflakes, the alt right is a much cooler version of main stream conservatism.

You can ask Trumps campaign manager who says he runs Breitbart to cater to the alt right. So I'd start there instead of blaming Obama or Hillary, like every single conservative in America.

An Establishment Conservative’s Guide To The Alt-Right


The alternative right, more commonly known as the alt-right, is an amorphous movement. Some — mostly Establishment types — insist it’s little more than a vehicle for the worst dregs of human society: anti-Semites, white supremacists, and other members of the Stormfront set. They’re wrong.

Previously an obscure subculture, the alt-right burst onto the national political scene in 2015. Although initially small in number, the alt-right has a youthful energy and jarring, taboo-defying rhetoric that have boosted its membership and made it impossible to ignore.
