Any time the left labels anything, they must make it about race.
The left didn't make the Alt-Right about race...the Alt-Right made themselves about race.

I think it has a lot to do with the media accepting and using the term. Which is sort of handy since there is in fact a division within the party. So it helps label which group you're talking about because no longer can you just say Conservatives, or The Right and be talking about a unified ideology at all.
Neocons are more Imperialist and Global in their objectives while AltRight is, or at least alleges to be against those things and are more Nationalist thinking. There are major differences between the groups.

Oh I must have missed that bit about being straight! I don't blame you for not knowing what cisgender is as I had to look it up myself. It's normal people. Born a male? You accept that. Born a female? You accept that. Normal. One of the least PC things to do, to label something as normal.

So who leads the "alt-Right"? Who named it? What is the website? Where are the groups official statements of beliefs?
White supremacist Richard Spencer, who runs the National Policy Institute, a tiny white supremacist think tank, coined the term “Alternative Right” as the name for an online publication that debuted in 2010
One of the alt-right's figureheads today is Milo Yiannopoulos, technology editor for the website Breitbart.
