For John, BLUF: The Media and the "Left" (but I repeat myself) have lost touch with reality and are just throwing stuff at the wall to see what sticks. Nothing to see here; just move along.
The "Alt-Right"? So I am being shoehorned into one more despised group here in the US?
Here is the Wikipedia definition:
But critics say that Bannon's hiring resonates far beyond the Trump campaign in troubling ways. It marks a worrisome marriage of the Republican Party with an Internet culture that, they say, peddles in white identity, misogyny, anti-Semitism, and Clinton conspiracies.I am not anti-Semitic, especially when compared to my bien-pensant Progressive friends. I am not a member of any "white identity" group. Clinton Conspiracies? Not likely. I believe Mr Vince Foster committed suicide, but I do find it strange the records are now reported missing from the National Archieves. But, I am moving on. Use of a private EMail Server, while Nixonian, turned out to be an unlucky choice. it isn't a Conspiracy, it is what it is. And DOJ said no crime, which is what it is. Misogyny? I try to be respectful of all. I sometimes suspect that women think they are special and that men don't harass men and women don't abuse men.
We are seeing the bien-pensant playing Christmas Tree and trying to hang everything they see as wrong with society on the Alt-Right, which has replaced the Tea Parties as the focus of their ire.
I think it is a case of "Drinking your own bathwater".
Hat tip to the Memorandum.
