    Nah. Not everyone on the right is an alt-righter. Just the ones who are white nationalists/white supremacists/racists. Or apologists for them.

    Alt-right beliefs have been described as isolationist, protectionist, antisemitic, and white supremacist,[6][7][8] frequently overlapping with Neo-Nazism,[9][10][11] nativism and Islamophobia,[12][13][14][15][16] antifeminism and homophobia,[9][17][18][19] right-wing populism,[20][21] and the neoreactionary movement.[6][22] The concept has further been associated with several groups from American nationalists, neo-monarchists, men's rights advocates, and the 2016 presidential campaign of Donald Trump.[12][21][22][23][24]

    The alt-right has its roots on Internet websites such as 4chan and 8chan, where anonymous members create and use Internet memes to express their ideologies.[6][11][25] It is difficult to tell how much of what people write in these venues is serious and how much is intended to provoke outrage.[20][26] Members of the alt-right use websites like Alternative Right, Twitter, Breitbart, and Reddit to convey their message.[27][28] Alt-right postings generally support the policies of Donald Trump and Mike Pence [29][30][31][32] and oppose immigration, multiculturalism and political correctness.[10][17][33]

    The alt-right has also had a significant influence on conservative thought in the United States, such as the Sailer Strategy for winning political support, along with having close ties to the Trump Administration. It has been listed as a key reason for Trump's win in the 2016 election.[34][35] The Trump administration includes several figures who are associated with the alt-right, such as former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon.[36] In 2016, Bannon described Breitbart as "the platform for the alt-right", with the goal of promoting the ideology



    Before conservatives completely disavow the 'alt-right', let's see what fits.

    The left has taken the sting out of the word "Nazi".
    All one had to do to be labeled a Nazi by the left was to vote for Trump.

    That's not true. But saying it might make some feel better about their alt-rightism.

    No, it's really not. There are differences between Nazis, white supremacists, white nationalists, and just plain racists who don't mind if the Nazis are among their ranks.

    Did that happen on TOL? What or who are you referring to?

    But I notice even many nazis take offense when they are called "nazis." So probably not. Notice that when Trump tried to equivocate nazis with normal people, he ended up smearing himself, not cleaning up nazis.


    All one had to do to be labeled a Nazi by the left was to vote for Trump.
    Even Clinton admitted that they weren't all nazis or white supremacists.

    But this isn't about reality for you, is it?
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    So, what's the differences between them all? Be specific please.

    Sent from my SM-G920V using TOL mobile app
    Contrary to what many Americans seem to think, the document we now call "the Constitution" and the Declaration of Independence are not pretty much the same thing or "connected in spirit," or "two sides of the same coin." The two documents were written by two different groups of people at two different times to accomplish two totally different goals.
