That's super cool. We didn't invent the Alt-Right. What part of that are you unable to process?


I didn't say you did create the term.

I said leftists need a massive boogeyman for their straw arguments.

The white supremacist 'alt-right' is a fringe group at best. The last national Neonazi convention (in 2016) covered by the media hosted ~200 people.

200. Not 2,000 or 20,000 or 200,000. 200.

That's not 'fringe', that's not even 'residue'. But from what leftists are saying we're in the middle of some massive white supremacy uprising.

Is that a code on the PS4?

Wait a minute...halt the pity party for just a sec!

I thought the left were SJW's....when did they become Ctrl Left?

Even more important which side creates the most labels, or is it an even deal?

Is the ultimate tolerance seeing the person and not the label or a label?

Could a joined disdain for labels unite the labelled?

Okay, carry on.

I appreciate the responses.

I suppose I feel better simply because I am not the only one confused.

Maybe folks on this site should stop using them.

No one here seems to be 'those people'.

Looking forward to an answer, but my guess is that each is just a nonsensical pet name used by those in the other camp.


The term alt-right was initially used by the dick heads who proclaimed themselves to be so. ctrl-left just seems more like childish right wingers trying to come up with some little term of their own to disparage people who are against right wing extremism..... I thought that was easy.

If probably the majority of people on here who partake in the political threads looked in a mirror, they'd see at least one looking back at them.

Just accept that you're a racist if you want free speech.



Free speech is fine, also the freedom to oppose the speech is part of free speech.

Free killing, and free extermination is not allowed.

Vocal extremes of the left and right.

How do you know who they are? I suspect like vegetarians, they will tell you.
(No offense to the vegetarians, but most will understand the reference)

As for their behaviour, sadly it often ends up being much of the "same sh!t, different shovel".



Edit: Who applies the label depends on who you are speaking to, how they identify and how they choose to view opponents or those that do not agree with them. Typically those referred to by such terms are often the extreme of the ideology.
