That doesn't make sense though because there isn't even any evidence that the alt-right exists outside of the internet. I don't count the KKK/Neo-Nazis as the same entity because I think they're too stupid to have any political views beyond "WHITE POWER" or how to manipulate the internet in the same way as the alt-right does.

You've got a loosely associated, amorphous voting block with vaguely defined ideals that doesn't hold any tangible districts or land, it seems to me that it would be pretty easy to wipe away their representation like what happened with the Pirate Party in Sweden.

The folks who helped Trump get into power were blue-collars in the Rust Belt, which is a much more well-traded demographic than "alt-right" and doesn't have as much association with racism.

THOUGH, I have photographs of Confederate flags being flown here in Minnesota. So who knows?

And just like that, Steve Bannon is fired.

If Trump has shown any dedication at all to his presidency, its toward Twitter.

I'm not old enough to view that video.

I knew what it was anyway even when the title was blocked - you are that predictable - and it's like you didn't even read the bit of my post you quoted -

Dopple if you truly believe Alt-Right beliefs are kept solely to the internet and are not legitimately held by people who actively participate within the political sphere of things then I don't know what to say. Do you truly believe all of the people who subscribe to the kinds of things Breitbart and Alex Jones put out there are just internet trolls?

Not to mention quite a few tenets of what the Alt-Right believe in (racial segregation for one) are very similar if not identical to the kinds of beliefs that Nazi and KKK members hold to.

Alt-right beliefs are not the same as the "alt right" as a so-called movement. Because if the movement truly exists, there is no consistency in whatever ideals it holds dear beyond racism. Even the classic stereotype of anarcho-capitalism doesn't apply to all of them since many are too stupid to understand it.

Alt-right is less Tea Party and more Occupy Wall Street.

I would prefer to deny alt-right exists and just identify these people for what they are, namely racists.

Hey the dude on the phone at the 9 minute mark went to my high school. I'm so incredibly proud. I guess that's what he's doing these days.
