    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    We see it on here quite frequently with the obvious 'characters'.

    Inneresting eh?

    If only there was some kind of global information network to find these things out. Oh, wait...

    The alt-right, an abbreviation of alternative right, is a loosely connected far-right, white nationalist movement based in the United States. A largely online phenomenon, the alt-right originated in the U.S. during the 2010s although has since established a presence in various other countries. The term is ill-defined, having been used in different ways by various self-described "alt-rightists", media commentators, and academics.

    No. I'm implying it. But it could be a wind up, rather than because I really think so. Or not.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Nat, no need to be sarcastic. It's called having a discussion, you would expect the op to then tell you what they think alt-right is and go from there.

    Even the text you pasted describes the alt-right as ill-defined and open to interpretation.

    I'm truly sorry. I was going for patronising.

    Yes, it's ill-defined, but it seems to be far-right, white racists nationalists especially those who use the internet to propagate their views - often attempting to hide their racist/nationalist ideology to try to shift the definition what is acceptable, and quite happy to use fake news and other propaganda techniques to further their aims. (Yes, the far left do this too, as do certain types of liberalists).

    That's how you do patronising.

    the only ones who call themselves alt-right these days are the white ethno-nationalists in the US, the likes of Richard Spencer and Jarrod Taylor, the reality is they have a very small following (just look at their social media numbers), Alt-right is used as a slur to de-legitimise anyone with a right of centre opinion
