Alt Right Takes over Trump campaign. The crazies are running the asylum now.

August 18, 2016

The alt-right is a segment of right-wing ideologies presented as an alternative to mainstream conservatism in the politics of the United States.

There's no official ideology associated with the alt-right, but various sources have linked it to nationalism (Is the Alt Right for real?,) white supremacism (Anti-semetic Trump supporters made a giant list of people to target with a racist meme,) antisemitism (Donald Trump's rant against political correctness is comfort food to racists) right-wing populism (The Conservative Intellectual Movement in America: Then and Now,) nativism (An Open Letter to Mitt Romney,) and the neoreactionary movement (alt-right-explained, Colby Cosh: At some point, people will tire of being urged to progress while being told that none has ever happened)

The alt-right has lived in the dark corners of the interwebs and widely circulated false internet memes used to advance or express their beliefs, often on websites such as Breibart News.

What’s Breitbart News?

It’s the website that right-wing talk radio hosts wake up and read every morning. It has a deep following in the far fringes of the Republican Party -- the most openly xenophobic and conspicuously race-conscious nationalists in the conservative movement.

To give you a sense of what we mean, Breitbart News once published a piece attacking Bill Kristol, the conservative political pundit, with a headline that called him a “RENEGADE JEW.” That's not the kind of language you'd see even on Fox News, let alone a normal media outlet.

In April, the Southern Poverty Law Center noted that Breitbart, under Bannon’s leadership, has, “undergone a noticeable shift toward embracing ideas on the extremist fringe of the conservative right. Racist ideas. Race-baiting ideas. Anti-Muslim and anti-Immigrant ideas.”

"Mr. Bannon, once recognized by Bloomberg Politics as the 'most dangerous political operative in America,' will oversee the campaign staff and operations," proudly touted a press release by the campaign.

What we know is the the alt-right has crawled out of the zest pool it hid and is running The Donald's campaign. The crazies are truly running the asylum.
