From the article:
I also made it clear at the time in my repeated defenses of the matter, like this one:
I Did NOT Call For An Alliance With White Nationalists, You Fucking Idiots
I’m just going to be weak, messy, angry, hurt and exhausted in this article, if that’s okay with you. I can only ever…
Do you know who is a member of the alt-right? Richard Spencer of “punch Nazis” fame — the man who coined that term. Spencer is a white nationalist, and he is the man I explicitly cited as someone I wasn’t comfortable collaborating with in the original article I wrote that started all this controversy in the first place.
Throughout the entire article, including the mother fucking title, I use the phrase “anti-establishment right”, not “alt-right”. These are two very different terms; alt-right means white nationalists, anti-establishment right means any right-leaning opposition to the neoliberal neoconservative Dempublican one-party system and the propaganda machine that holds it together. Libertarians, ancaps, paleocons, right-leaning independents, any of the various factions of Trump’s base that fall outside both the Fox News demographic and the alt-right; any of these could be labeled “alt-right” by someone determined to conflate them with white supremacists, but this would be deceitful and wrong. Calling someone alt-right just because they voted for Trump or have a Pepe avatar is as inaccurate as saying “alt-left”; it’s a label that’s being used to smear people who don’t support the status quo.
