The Alt-Right
Man I am so glad I avoided most all things political for the last couple of years.

So the term Alt-Right has been tossed around the last few weeks.  I work with a Reddit reading, NPR listening, Prius driving leftist fanboi and have been trying to translate this bullshit he was saying about how Fake News on Facebook got Trump elected.  It was so stupid I looked it up only to read about Trump calling out the media for promoting Fake News and some other bullshit about alt-facts.

And now alt-right.

So clearly, everyone is now dumber than normal, and it seems mostly to do with the use of social media. In other words, the stupid is now on parade.

"For that reason, as well as for fun and notoriety, alt-righters like to troll, prank and provoke."
http://www.npr.org/2016/08/26/491452721/the-history-of-the-alt-right

So now the libtards are worked up about anti-PC trololololos?

So if you are not a pro black lives matter, pro Israel, pro transgender, Hillary supporter, then you must be Alt-Right.  Which then of course must mean you really are a bigoted, racist, anti-gay, anti-Semite white nationalist.

That's a nice lumping of folks in to the Alt-Right. Kudos. You're no different than the weirdos.

RE: The Alt-Right
I don't think anyone can keep up with all those walls of text popping up all over the place without getting riled up and mixed up. I wasn't kidding when I was saying there are many red herrings being thrown about - many points being discussed have equivalent inverses or are just as applicable to to Obama administration, but their equivalents were largely ignored or forgotten.


I'm not even putting much merit into everything in the news or posts. Sure I'll read them, but I generally just glaze over them and judge them based on their coherency and reactions. And what I'm seeing is a lot of people becoming hypersensitive to issues that literally do not affect them in any significant way. Sure there are several things going on that are very important, but it's being drowned out by the news publishing nonsense like the size of Trump's hands and what's being said by this very obscure journalist/reporter/whatever that sounds like that one uncle that you avoid talking to whenever possible.


If you consider me an idiot, then I should serve as an example as the average American. And the point is I couldn't even keep up with all the different stories being told by the news even if I wanted to and had the time, and now way in hell will I be able to sort fact from fiction. I simply don't trust the media to tell me the truth anymore. However, Trump is something completely different. He's not being given fake praise by the news that I don't trust, and his platform is consistent and very easy to understand (Make America Great Again, Build a Wall, And Deport All the Illegal Aliens Stealing Our Jobs) as opposed to whatever the hell it seems Clinton is promising right now. I don't care that he's a Bad Man because people have been saying that Clinton, Obama, Bush, etc were Bad Men (and Woman) too - and I'm not concerned about the trivialities because I have to work all day to feed my family and I'd rather go to my son's football game then be worried about all that shit being done that my only contribution to is a little form every four years.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Alt-Right is essentially white supremacist.

RE: The Alt-Right
I still haven't got to the part where you are conflating Bannon's website for being a platform for the Alt-Right as to also meaning that then he is then also Alt-Right, and that then of course Trump must be also Alt-Right.… because you are still conflating Alt-Right for essentially being white supremacist because you read an article that did that (and then seemingly admitted it).

And what does "essentially being something" even mean?

Like if I said your were essentially being a dumb ass, how much of a dumb ass are you then?

Read that phrase very carefully. It's just another way of saying "it is even though it is not." which is stupid.

So you essentially don't know what a rhetorical question is, do you?
