    They proudly coined themselves alt-right, until it got exposed as a KKK neo nazis nest.

    So any one that you disagree with is a racist but not necessarily alt right.

    That's just projection on your part. I do dislike all racists, but not all people I disagree with are racist.

    Yeah, there's very little genuine passion for redistributing wealth from the middle class to the rich. It was mostly coded identity issues, and now that aspect is more out in the open.

    The Tea Party started with anger about proposed homeowner relief after the housing crash and general opposition to helping victims of the economic collapse.

    Loneliness, lack of belonging, inadequacy, fear, poor social skills, lack of core beliefs, lack of success with woman. All the same attributes that extreme groups have manipulated for centuries to lure confused young men into thier arms.

    The Tea Party was too old, too boring, too rural, too policy-driven.

    The Alt-Right is younger, wittier, more cultural, and more urban/suburban. Instead of carrying signs, they make their political points through internet memes, message boards, etc. And of course, it's almost entirely based on cultural issues. Universal healthcare? Who gives a shit? I just saw a Youtube video of a Muslim in Michigan saying women shouldn't be allowed to wear bikinis.

    A person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is inherently superior to another.

    The whole concept to racism is not only contrary to facts but also an existential threat to humankind.

    Racism is an much over used term now.

    The first part about feels is the problem. Because someone feels like someone might feel different them them about something they call them racist.

    Also when some people don't like what someone's says it's called racist by this new movement.

    The term is so misused it has lost meaning.

    And yes there are racist out there, of all races. There are more white racist in the US Because There are more "white" people.

    I think that "racism" is way underused because it's not politically correct. People--especially in the media--will bend over backward to avoid noticing its existence. Shooter: "I shot those people because I hate n*****s." Media: "Shooter's motive unknown; experts suspect economic anxiety, opioid crisis." I also rarely see it applied inappropriately.

    Has a single politician that defines themselves as "alt-right", been elected to a political position?

    And before anyone says Trump, please provide evidence of where Trump has described himself or his political platform as "alt-right", in the same manner as those of the "tea party" have.

    It's too bad the alt right isn't actually characterized by the two primary tenets identified by Bannon: Economic nationalism and an "America first", non-interventionist foreign policy.

    What? What alt-right? Who said anything about alt-right? I'm not convinced there's such a thing as alt-right. You're alt-right, if anything, righty.

    I agree. I don't think you could find anyone who used to turn out for the old TP demonstrations who isn't a current member of Trump's unshakable, ready-to-die-for-dear-leader 40% base.

    They're motivated by race and establishing an ethno state. We're talking about the real alt right here, not Gavin and Milo and Rubin and Shapiro. If you don't believe me, you haven't spent much time on 4chan. That's the home of the alt-right without a doubt. And that's what they want. They talk about it constantly.

    That's because what's racist to the average person is normal and fine behaviour in the brain of a racist.

    Just like what feels like a call to equality by the oppressrd feels like the end of the world to the oppressors.
