    I don't mean to alarm anyone, but the term alt-right was coined the same week as the movie Twilight was released in cinemas.

    The conception of the alt-right is much like the tea party imo. It started out with respectable motives and intentions but has mutated into extreme immaturity and browbeating. I rejoice in their disposition to be cynical towards the moronic, naive clowns on my side of the political spectrum but they're scraping the bottom of the barrel by now.

    And the prognostic parts of their criticisms are beyond laughable.

    This seems like a good read on the issue:

    Libertarians Sometimes Become Fascists. Here?s Why. | National Review

    Like religion, politics attracts kooks and grifters because it is a field where results have a mysterious and hard-to-trace relationship with the time, effort, and cash invested in them. Grifters use this to create lucrative and low-effort consulting jobs. For kooks, the comfort is more psychological. If a kook can convince himself — or better yet, others — that Freemasons, Jews, or Cultural Marxists run the whole world, he’s suddenly relieved of the burden of explaining to himself and others the shipwreck of his own talents and ambitions. And speaking of grifters, if kooks start digging into the crack in their minds and sometimes end up with a cracked will, grifters start with a cracked will and usually end up with an empty mind. Anything like a conviction could get in the way of the money-making.

    yeah, I invented Nationalism, and being a dick. not that it's a base feeling, for inadequate's and saying it's a reaction is the most pathetic excuse for their own vileness, or owt.

    Evil people have never owned up to what they do, they always blame others for behaving appallingly, the Alt-right is a seething cauldron of victimhood based on a ridiculously wrong premise that the most privelleged in society are somehow disadvantaged.

    So yeah they have to blame the Liberals, Socialists, Feminists, Jews, Blkacks, Mexicans and every ****ing one else, but themselves, because secretly even they know those and the ones appeasing them are, of course, the only ones to blame for this mass distortion of any reality in this World.

    None of it's new, the Alt-right is just another name for it, with different targets, and it existed before Hitler throughout history.

    Hard to argue with this thread. Especially considering grecian's reply.
