What is the alt-right?

Everybody has an opinion about it, but nobody seems to know exactly whatit is. So, I took it upon myself to find out.

I took a deep dive into alt-right culture. I read their books, listened to their podcasts, watched their videos, followed their blogs, and spoke personally to their leaders.

Heres what I learned:

First, theyre really small… like, your high school reunion small. That bignational alt-right gathering in Charlottesville, in August 2017? Yeahthatattracted all of about 600 people…and thats on the high end of estimates. And that infamous torch rally on the evening of August 11? There were maybe 100 tiki-torch carriers.

But however small it is, the alt-right does have a belief systema worldview. Its right there, in their name. The alt in alt-right means alternative. The alt-right is an alternative to American conservatism.

So, its no surprise then that the alt-right has far more in common with theleftanother alternative to conservatism than it does with the traditional American right.

Let me try to untangle this.

Both the left and the alt-right are obsessed with race and identity politicsthe belief that a persons value is linked to their racial heritage. The left wants special status for racial and ethnic minorities. The alt-rightwants special status for the racial and ethnic majority.

Since America, according to the alt-right, was founded by white Europeans, and was built by white Europeans, it should belong to white Europeans. Americas success, in their view, is a product of race and geographyor, as the alt-right likes to put it, of blood and soil.

So, in the alt-rights view, the moral ideals of the American Founderslike,all men are created equal are naive and misguided.

The man who coined the term alt-right is a white nationalist named Richard Spencer, who runs alternativeright.com as well as the National Policy Institute, the self-described think tank of the alt-right. According to Spencer, the movement is dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States.

Jared Taylor, the editor of the white identity website American Renaissance, holds that, Any attempt to create a society in which race can be made not to matter will fail.

Other alt-right leaders include:

Sam Francis, the late syndicated columnist and forefather of the movement who famously called for a white racial consciousness.

Theodore Beale, the blogger known as Vox Day, who, in his manifesto, What is the Alt-Right cites the white nationalist motto, We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.

And Paul Ramsey, a white nationalist who produced and starred in a video entitled, Is It Wrong Not to Feel Sad about the Holocaust?

Another area of agreement between the alt-right and the left is that both ultimately reject God. The alt-right admires Christendom for uniting the European continent, but rejects Christianity for its offer of salvation to all people, irrespective of race. The movements favorite philosopherjust like the Nazis of yesteryearis Friedrich Nietzsche, who famously claimed, God is dead.
