    Can somebody please explain to me what "alt-right" means? I hear this term being tossed around a lot. I consider myself to be politically aware, but have not heard or read a definition of "alt-right".

    In my opinion, People like myself who are true constitutional conservatives instead of being a RINO like most congressional republicans.

    According to the liberals and their media, we represent everything that's wrong with the country.

    To save face, they might try to tell you the alt right is made up of David Dukes and KKK types. But they really mean anyone who opposes their liberal agenda and who won't negotiate away their constitutional rights.

    I think it is like fascist. It means whatever the person using it wants it to mean. Like my anti gun, police hating, pro $15 minimum wage, pro price control, self professed socialist coworker calling me a nazi.

    If you have cool buzzwords you win the media war.

    It's a liberal term for "right wing extremists" read as: "anybody who disagrees with liberal craziness and makes no apologies for it."

    Sure, there are some right wing extremists, but its a small group. On the other hand left wing extremists now comprise 50% of the democratic base.

    People accused of being far right.

    The left tries to associate racism with the alt-right.

    In the origin of the term, the "alt" means alternative. Alternative to main stream.

    I think "Neocon" didn't sound menacing enough for their purpose. Whenever I read or hear the word, I think of the movie Matrix or Comic-con. Kind of blunts their whole attack.

    Wait, now you're confusing me. I always thought "neocon" referred to a globalist moderate like GW Bush.

    It does.

    Alt right is righter than right.

    You know, people with guns who don't believe in grouping and labeling people for the purposes of Social Justice.

    It may have started out as 'far right' or 'extreme right' but now...



    Alt Right = Not Left

    My understanding is that it is a conservative who has more 'extreme' views in regards to conservatism. Primarily, troll-like, is what I've been told.

    back before the turn of the century,forums like this one were part of a BBS system and you had categories to choose from.
    "Alt.Right" would have been the "Alternative Right" category the more conservative and not as mainstream right or as Billary called it the "Right-Wing"
    so all the ALT. meant was not the mainstream board.
    anyone remember when this site was part of the Shooters webring?

    now apparently it means whoever Liberals and Fascist just don`t like.

    It is the nasty labeling of the TEA party. The TEA party scares the libs so they went out and found the looniest of the bunch, gave their silly ideas time, labelled them the alt-right and then tied them to the TEA party to try to bring it down. Unfortunately it has been fairly successful.
