They have given to libertarian organizations, such as the Cato Institute, and political organizations like the Club for Growth, which spends millions of dollars each election cycle in Republican primaries, hoping to promote orthodox conservative policies on taxes and spending. The Mercers are also significant donors to the sprawling political network overseen by the political activists Charles G. and David H. Koch, which is also libertarian-leaning.
A Mercer-backed super PAC supporting Mr. Trump is now being shepherded by David Bossie, a conservative activist whose own projects have been funded in part by the Mercers’ family foundation, according to tax documents.
Bossie said his group might use “geo-fencing,” software that relies on mobile-device data to determine, for instance, whether users attended a Bernie Sanders’ rally. The super PAC then can target them with messages that tie Clinton to Wall Street in an effort to drive down her poll numbers among young liberal Democrats who drawn to Sanders’ populist message during the Democratic primaries.
If you read the writings of leading alt-righters, it is impossible to come to any other conclusion. Some are avowed white supremacists. Some eschew talk of supremacy and instead focus on the need for racial separation to protect "white identity." But one can't talk about the alt-right knowledgeably without recognizing their racism.
And yet that is exactly what some conservatives seem intent on doing. For example, my friend Hugh Hewitt, the influential talk radio host, has been arguing that there is a "narrow" alt-right made up of a "execrable anti-Semitic, white supremacist fringe" but also a "broad alt-right" made up of frustrated tea partiers and others who are simply hostile to the GOP establishment and any form of immigration reform that falls short of mass deportation.

Guess I better for for Hillary then!
I don't particularly care who you vote for. I'm just trying to give some of you
willfullyunabashedly ignorant ATS Trumpeteers a little something to ponder.
Three responses in and not one shred of substance. No arguing the facts or debating my assessment, just personal attacks and mindless one-liners.

Using labels doesn't mean you have to engage in opposing propaganda it just means that you understand that without descriptors we could be talking about gobbledygook or gibberish and no one would ever know.
