The Alt-Right's Opposite Number Is The Ctrl-Left

Damn, wish I'd thought of that.

My God, that's brilliant for so many reasons. Not only is it a great IT play on words, but it captures totalitarian aspect of the extreme left.

An opportunity to make such a relevant, prescient political IT pun comes along only once in a long while, and I missed it.

Simultaneously experiencing a sense of awe personal failure is unfortunate.

Not quite as clever but the author makes some good points. Apologies if you've seen it before:

This other piece by Keri Smith is worth your time as well.

Thanks enormously, Anon, for that first piece...it's just great, and I felt like bursting into tears to read someone saying it.

At the risk of blowing my own horn, I think it's the same kind of point I've tried to make by talking about "PC denialism"--but better.

Looking forward to reading the second piece.
