The Alt-Right: Why It Won’t Take Off In The UK

The shifting, ill-defined alt-right has been getting some airtime recently, but still not everyone is sure exactly what it is. Hillary Clinton doesn’t like it. Donald Trump does. It’s young, male, and spends a lot of time indoors. It was spawned and incubated in the noxious substrata of 4-chan and Reddit, and it tweets frequently. Breitbart is its news wing, and Milo Yiannopoulos might appear to be a leader, but isn’t really. The alt-right rails against PC culture, which sounds good, but it does so by actually embodying the aggressions that SJWs get so over-wrought about. The alt-right either is racist and anti-Semitic, or else does a very good impression of being racist and anti-Semitic.
