The Alt Right Is Just The Republican Party
And it always has been. This Alt-Right moniker is fucking bullshit; the Republican Party has been the home of the racists and nativists and Nazis and Klan members and other violent, revanchist, reactionary morons ever since the Civil Rights Act, so to pretend that these bastards are somehow anything other than a big chunk of the normal GOP is ludicrous. And it's letting the Republican Party off too easy, which is obviously the point. If the establishment pretends that Trump and his people are something alien to normal Republican politics, they can pretend that they don't matter and pretend they will go away after Trump loses and never be heard from again. All fucking horseshit, but the survival of the entire exceptional American political establishment depends on that horseshit somehow becoming manifest.
