The Alt-Right is the new extremist Right Wing, which makes Fox News Channel, the right wing radio talk show hosts, and the conservative think tanks seem moderate.
These are groups and individuals, including Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News, now working with Donald Trump, who are white nationalists, mixed with anti Semites, nativists, misogynists, xenophobes, homophobes, and Islamophobes.
They include Confederate sympathizers, who hate the federal government, and want the end of all government regulation on any area of the economy, and would love to get rid of civil rights laws and civil liberties protections.
If they could gain power, they would love to wipe out the New Deal and Great Society reforms, that have made America the nation it is today.
They want the return of the “good old days” of states rights, racial discrimination, and women being “put in their place” in the bedroom and the kitchen, and not being out in the work force and promoting feminist causes.
And they believe in a “great Jewish conspiracy”, which connects them to Nazi mentality.
These are the groups that Hillary called a “Basket of Deplorables” yesterday, a perfectly appropriate term.
