Here’s why I call them the “Alt Right” instead of just “Nazis.”
The Alt Right is a composite of a number of far-right tendencies including anarcho-capitalists, silicon valley neo-reactionaries, MRAs, Klansmen, and other forms of fascists.
Broadly, it’s a fascist movement, but it’s a fascist movement of a certain character.
Calling them the Alt Right makes a clear, descriptive identification specific, and shows that this is a discrete group, or rather group of groups, with a set of visible, self-proclaimed and established leaders.
The group itself must be destroyed and the individuals behind it brought to justice. The state won’t do anything about them, so we must.
