The Alt-Right Sounds Pretty Terrible. What is the Alt-Right Anyway?

...if this is even vaguely right...I guess it is terrible.
   I'm a little skeptical, but I really don't know what it mostly is. I thought it was Milo and similar people, who seemed to me mostly to be farbling liberal/ progressive/ PC/ SJW pieties...then I started hearing that it was racists and white supremacists...then Pepe the frog got in on the action...and I heard that Pepe was now a "white supremacist" symbol...though "white supremacy" is used by the PCs / SJWs to just mean racist since they can't resist good hyperbole and apparently ordinary racism isn't bad enough...but anyway...ordinary racism is bad enough for then it turned out that by "white supremacists" they meant the Alt-right...and I still didn't understand what that was...and I know that the left now just calls everyone on the right racist basically, again, I'm skeptical....and the SPLC calls the Alt-right a hate group...but the SPLC seemed to go crazy a long time ago...they call the men's rights movement a hate group and that doesn't seem right at all...and, of course, political movements are vague and fuzzy things anyway...
   But if anybody actually knows what the damn Alt-right mostly is, I sure as hell wish they'd tell me.

In November 2008, Paul Gottfried addressed the H. L. Mencken Club about what he called "the alternative right".[13] In 2009, two more posts at Taki's Magazine, by Patrick J. Ford and Jack Hunter, further discussed the alternative right.[14] The term, however, is most commonly attributed to Richard B. Spencer, president of the National Policy Institute and founder of Alternative Right.[6][15]


Benjamin Welton, writing for The Weekly Standard, described the alt-right as a "highly heterogeneous force" that "turns the left's moralism on its head and makes it a badge of honor to be called 'racist,' 'homophobic,' and 'sexist.'"[35]

Oh Lord, please don't let me
Be misunderstood."
