The Tea Party is a political ideology, alt-right is a social construct. What do you see connecting them?


their goals. their followers. 

So it begins.

The Alt Right and the Tea Party are related to each other, they may vary somewhat but their ideas and goals are pretty much the same.

"their ideas and goals are pretty much the same"

How can you say that?


rker321 only said it because it's true - the majority of US Citizens recognize that's just another of the facts of the real world...

rk...,,from the first article i found.


Bannon’s Breitbart News, launched in 2007, became the media hub of the sprawling movement, his support eventually rendering Trump a default figurehead.

As “alt-right,” the movement has touted itself as just a louder, consciously provocative but legitimate force in conservative politics.

But the Southern Policy Law Center, an anti-extremist research group, insists the alt-right “is pretty much the same thing as the old white supremacist right —- even if it does favor suits and ties over Klan robes or faux Nazi uniforms.”

SPLC counts scores of such groups under the alt-right umbrella, many of which were present in Charlottesville.

Saturday’s rally was led by Richard Spencer, whose Washington-based National Policy Institute think-tank is “dedicated to the heritage, identity and future of people of European descent in the United States.”

Groups he invited were openly neo-Nazi and white supremacist, such as Vanguard America, whose members chanted “blood and soil,” echoing the “blut und boden” cries of Hitler’s followers in the 1930s.

They also included Identity Evropa, an “identitarian” group that promotes white superiority and separatism, and the Traditionalist Workers Party, which marries a Nazi-like logo with a Christian whites-only ideology. Both are stridently anti-Semitic.



So it begins.

Do you really see the Constitution, "lofo base", property rights in the 18th century, "Republibubble", and Oligarchs related to the mistaken use of the term "alt-right" by many of our posters?


When one considers the deliberate and blatant dishonesty, stupidity and cupidity of trump, his voters, followers and supporters - belief in mythical creatures and mythical occurrences - as well as belief that those of the alt-right are sane - is not in the least unexpected for those obtuse, irrational, racist, and bigoted creatures of the political right.

rk does not support "alt-right" he just understands the meaning of the term. The Tea Party is not the topic and certainly not related to the alt-right so why are they in  this discussion?

 

Have you watched the Spencer interview so as to understand the meaning of "alt-right"?

alt-right is only about "white America" - that has nothing to do with the Tea Party.

"Understanding a term" is usually not agreeing with you, even though you may think so. By the way, I watched the video and the entire meaning of 'Alt-Right' goes beyond what your buddy stated. Since I viewed your video ....... did you read the interview that Feinstein released?


Understanding the term might be accepting the definition from the guy who coined it. Feinstein's release was not related to the "alt-right".

No, "rk" only chooses to use a cherry picked definition of the Alt-Right offered by Spencer, a very narrow minded definition. They (the Alt-Right) does include racists, Nazis and White Supremacists but they have an agenda, a political agenda, and many things in that agenda are shared by the Tea Party and it's founders. Funny how so many of your postings support that agenda.


No, rk chooses to accept that the guy who supposedly coined the term knows it's meaning. You on the other hand define it as, "Anyone who I disagree with". 

 

The alt-right has only one "agenda", if it can be called that - "white America.

 

Funny how you distort the meaning and use your distortion to post the insults about supporting the agenda which exists only in your head.
