For a long time now, the traditional parties of the working classes have abandoned them.
In the US, the Democrats care more about global trade deals that make it easier for US companies to source their workers from overseas and they
routinely fail to address the issues that these people raise.
They swapped them for middle class and celebrity types who never feel the effects of factory closures, sales tax rises (on fuel etc) and a bunch of
Their special groups now are BAME's and immigrants (Ilegal as well as legal). They turn on anyone who doesn't go out of their way to be pc with an
almost fascist violence while shrugging off similar actions against the same class of people.
it is the same in the UK. The labour party was started up by union members to give a voice to the ordinary man and woman in the street. Now it is
exactly the same as the Dems. There is a thread by Kester on this very site about how Labour now pays lip service to the working class, union vote
while following the exact same policies previous governments have instituted to destroy their influence.
We have a situation where white, working class folks are unwelcome apart from on the day of the vote. The rest of the time they are supposed to sit
back, accept the fact that government policy is making them poorer and shut up about it.
The moment they mention wage deflation, housing costs and reduced access to public services as being a (partial) result of the levels of immigration
to their country they are rounded on as racists.
NO ONE has this group of people's backs at all. Occasionally some millionaire lefty mouthpiece will offer the platitude that "We know things are
tough, but carry on trusting us and it'll get better"...it's just a lie. They don't care. They want the masses to shut up and leave the well to do to
enjoy their culture in peace.
Enter the Alt-Right. To begin with, there were bat5h1t Neo Nazi parties that counted their votes in the low hundreds, then a new group, parties like
UKIP, NO2EU and others formed around public opposition to further EU encroachment on people's lives. In the UK there was no main stream party that
either opposed this or offered the people a vote on such things. UKIP took off and some of the more right wing freaks watched and toned their message
down and softly allied themselves with such parties.
It was a similar thing with the Tea Party and suchlike.
We see memes and posts designed to upset and infuriate appear on Reddit and 4chan. How else are these dispossessed people who are truly suffering
going to hit back against the powerful, well off middle and upper classes who think they shouldn't have a voice in the direction of their country?
The MSM is broadly in line with the political left so they don't care, the right wing tabloids in the UK have a history of extreme anti union
rhetoric, so they can't really be turned to either.
People get together and post a meme that is inflammatory and designed to upset people. Then they make a point of laughing at the reaction, poking fun
at the triggered, those same people who, up until now, didn't even see these folks. They were an invisible underclass, unheard and unheeded. Well,
now they are taking notice aren't they?
None of these folks cares too much about the Nazi thing, because, well, Nazis aren't the ones who put them out of work at the car plant or made them
feel like dirt in their own lands so when the Nazis join in, everyone just goes along for the laugh, to experience the pain of those others who have
In summary, Alt-right isn't truly about white supremacy, its about becoming a massive pain in the bum of the establishment.
A large number of white people have been marginalised, ignored, insulted and hurt over the last 30 years. Lashing out is the natural consequence of
