The alt-right movement
alternative right movement is a far-right movement that is made up of a group
of loosely aligned communities who are against multiculturalism, social justice
movements, immigration and political correctness. They embrace center-right
ideology’s and they also have traits of nationalism. The movement mostly
consist of young white men who see political correctness as a threat to their
liberty. Alt-right members are often associated with racism and anti-Semitism.
Alterative right protest
of the alternative right are very active online. They are very active on sites
like Breibart, Infowars and 4chan. Members are often seen trolling people
online and provoking people of the left wing. Frequently it occurs that members
say racist things online, but they don’t see it as an act of hate, but as an
act of freedom. They also use a lot of made up slam words such as
‘cukservative’, which stand for someone who has lost his masculinity.
There are not a lot of definitive spokespersons of the alt-right
because most of the members are active online. Three believed figureheads of
the alternative right movement are Milo Yiannopoulos, Alex Jones and Richard
Milo Yiannopoulos is a British conservative who, until February
2017, worked as the senior editor of Breibart. He embodies most of the
alt-right philosophy. He is very critical against social justice,
multiculturalism, feminism and Islam.
Another figurehead of the alternative right movement is the
American white supremacist Richard Spencer. He is the director of the National
Policy Institute and he is also in charge of the Washington Summit Publishers,
which is a white nationalist publisher. The term alt-right is by many believed
to be initially promoted by Richard Spencer who used the term alternative right
as the name for an online publication in 2010.
