So, a couple of days ago i discovered a group of people on the Internet who describe themselves as the “Alt-Right” but the question is are they really right-wing or not? Now, I’ve done some research and according to this starter pack meme. It should tell us what alt-rightists think.
So, what we can tell from here is that the Alt-Right are outspoken Donald Trump supporters, go to Costco, Anime fans, believe in the political bell curve, 4chan users, Burger King lovers, and neo-Confederates. These people seem to be typical internet memers that have huge support for Donald Trump, they largely differ from regular conservatives; I myself as a writer of this blog label myself as an Old Right patriotic paleocon, Let’s do a comparison chart of what I believe is the Old Right and the Alt-Right.
|Political Ideologies||Paleoconservatism, Paleolibertarianism||Neoconservatism, Moderate Republicanism|
|Economic System||Free-market capitalism||Regulated capitalism|
|Media||The Blaze, RedState, Fox News||New York Times, Right Side Broadcasting|
|LGBT||Strongly oppose LGBT rights||Slightly in favor of LGBT rights|
|Movies||Zootopia||Angry Birds Movie|
|Politicians||Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mitt Romney, Ron Paul||Donald Trump, Jeb Bush, George W. Bush, Bill Kristol|
|Other Personalities||Dinesh D’Souza, Steven Crowder||Ramzpaul|
|NSA and Patriot Act||Strongly oppose the Patriot Act||Don’t mind the Patriot Act|
So is the Alt-Right right? I will leave that up to debate in the comments section.
