I agree with a lot of those basic points myself, but I find myself edging more away from the alt right because it seems to embrace the nazi and literal fascist WN fringe. Wouldn't the alt right do better in gaining mainstream support on things like nationalism, free speech, and enforcement of existing immigration and crime laws if they dropped the nazi 1488 jew trappings?
The alt right trolls have done more damage to the left in the past couple years than any MUH PRINCIPLES conservative has done in decades.
We're absolutely not going to purge the extremists. That's a bullet train to irrelevance and a grand way to lose all influence and strength to push the Overton Window. The National Review Neocon types and the Democrats are already encouraging entryism into the Alt-Right and they're the same ones always offering helpful advice that would neuter genuine political opposition. Why do you think HRC specifically mentioned Dole and McCain and Romey and everybody else the GOP have been running for years in her speech to lament that the old Republican party was so much nicer and better? It's because they were cuckservative losers.
That is the same reason why Obama "praised" Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, and John McCain in his press conference after Trump attacked Khan. Leftists like him know that these type of globalist neocons are out of touch losers holding on to a dying creed (hence why they want them as opposition). Obama's smug narcissism renders him unable to understand that positively mentioning the #NeverTrump assholes only galvanizes more support for Trump. I don't care about this "alt right" label at all. In fact, wasting time disputing labels ascribed to you by lefties only gives them their desired edge over you.
Also, I agree wholeheartedly in refusing to go out of my way to condemn the "alt right extremists". Sorry lefties, but you fucked that one up. You didn't just fuck it up, you made it a project. You have consistently labeled anyone not down with your language policing, open borders-outsourcing ideology a racist, nazi, bigot, etc. for the last twenty years. Remember how you were viciously calling open border outsourcers like McCain, Romney, and the Bush family racists and nazis not even ten years ago? And now
you have the audacity to claim that Trump is any different? You have demonstrated time and again your claims that any
opposition to you are racists and nazis, no matter the issue or argument. We have seen what happens to anyone trying to reasonably meet you half way on any issue involving immigration, race, "bigotry", etc. and the way you deceptively backstab and destroy them. It's simply over.
The next famous individual that Al Sharpton demands an apology tour of for talking honestly about crime statistics or high profile shootings simply needs to publicly tell him to go fuck himself. Sharpton's power—and by extension, the left—relies on humiliating his victims. People like him have never given a shit about facts to begin with.
Broadly speaking, this "alt right" in my view can be summed up as a nationalist struggle against globalism, with a dose of being politically incorrect. Thats all it is.
