The Alt-Right is Mostly Leftist

    That is something Trump, using his real account, retweeted. Folks need to stop calling any media they disagree with as "fake".

    Well just excuse me for making a mistake, and if it helps then excuse me for being alive. I don't have a Twitter account and had to look up his actual account to verify what his account really was. And that crap was from 2015. So how is it relevant to anything now? He wasn't POUTS then. I asked what was the point of linking it with no explanation of what the point being made may be.

    Anyway, scrolling down through that mess makes me realize just how divided the country happens to be. It's O.K. to do that to a WHITE president, I guess. If that had been on Obama's Twitter account (assuming Obama had a Twitter account; I didn't bother to look) the left would have been running around with their hair on fire. Since it's Trump, that's O.K. though. Freakin' blind hate is going to tear the country apart. And looking at what is happening, and why, I'm beginning to not see that as all that bad a thing.

    Can't start a war now, football season is about to start.

    Haven't watched football since Shula/Marino days when they would stand up for the
    National Anthem. I'm betting attendance will be off a little this year! So I'm available,
    although at 75 they'll have to come to me

    My point is that Trump has been courting these alt-right people the whole time. While you may condemn them, keep in mind this is a component of Trump's base. That fact seemed to be getting ignored. I don't really care what everyone decides to do with that information-- you are free to ignore it if you wish, but I feel that adds a bit of dimension to the conversation.

    The leftist idiots crashed the funeral of the woman killed in Virginia- - - -maybe they need to have a few (or a LOT) of their own funerals to attend so they won't have time to mess with the decent folks on either side.

    Well lemme take a stab at it. This is not in any way a sympathetic or empathetic explanation.

    From what I gather the alt-right is the direct result of the lefts war on white men:

    Feminization of the educational system.
    Rape culture.
    Unfettered immigration from 3rd world countries.
    White privilege.

    Raised on ritalin, video games, and a culture where the only permitted examples of a strong male role model is whats seen/heard in a rap video/music.

    Therefore I cannot see the alt-right as leftist as it is the result of leftist policies. Although as Nazism was national socialism the alt-right could partake of leftist tendencies in so much as lead to a dictatorship, control economy, central planning, and goose stepping.

    It doesn't matter what labels are used, their actions are still reprehensible. Don't get caught in the trap of semantics - its a complete waste of time.

    The alt-right is characterized by strong sense of nationalism. Nationalism is defined as: "patriotic feeling, principles, or efforts". We all know that all leftists hate America. Therefore the alt-right can't possibly be leftist.
    That is because the leftists we are familiar with have their roots in the Soviet-style of socialism which is international in it's ambitions. Kind of like how we seem perplexed by the modern-day British abandoning their heritage as we watch movies like Dunkirk, it is due to the socialist within their government and academia who have revised their history and sown the seeds of guilt from their imperial past.

    Nationalism as an emerging political entity must be of the nation it is trying to take root in so therefore it would not follow a script like international socialism using, among other things, critical theory as it would be counter productive to a nationalist aims.
