A brief comment on Charlottesville –
When the term alt-Right began to be used it referred to the legitimate groundswell of Conservative activity against political correctness and extreme leftism. That cause remains worthy.
However, I am a Conservative and my grandfather was awarded a medal for shooting Nazis. Costumed Hitler-enthusiasts and Klansman are an affront to all decent people. Alt-Right cannot mean “Alt-Reich” if it is to have a future as a meaningful movement.
The election of Donald Trump in the United States and the vote for Brexit in the United Kingdom reflected a desire for a serious conversation about national identity and suppression of free speech by a complacent and bullying left-wing establishment.
If that conversation is to happen then decent people need to distance themselves from the extremists. Vox Day has rightly condemned the alt-Reich and I for one could not agree more.
