Liberals get hysterical over the 'alt-right' but we are living in their 'alt-left' world

Also, when posting news articles please use a format similar to the following post in the Immigration News forum:

You should never copy entire articles from other websites. Only copy the first few paragraphs (fair use) and then add a link to the original article so people can finish reading there if they are interested.

the alt right was named by bb honcho bannon, he's proud of it. 'alt left' as this op ed calls it, is occupy (which was not a liberal movement), ferguson (how is this 'left'?), black friday protests (?), and also leonardo di caprio (LOL).

sounds to me like the right wants to support trump and also distance themselves from maga punks like bannon and david dude and white supremacy in general. public perception just doesn't work that way. alt right is synonymous with bigotry and intolerance because that's what the alt right claimed to be.

Rationalization is a defense mechanism. It is an attempt to justify uncomfortable or controversial behaviors in a logical manner to avoid dealing with the discomfort of dealing with the truth. By consciously avoiding it, the behavior then becomes more tolerable

In layman's terms, it's called making excuses. It's a process by which humans both actively and subconsciously try to reduce cognitive dissonance, but it tends to lead to increasingly irrational behavior.

Or... It simply points out the truth of what America is becoming today. In spite of protests on both sides.

America is becoming "Alt-Everything". You are either Alt-Right or Alt-Left. Or at least everyone is perceived to be in one of those camps. The Right-leaning people don't see themselves as being "extreme", but call their Left-leaning opposites as "extreme" or "Alt". Same with left leaning people, they see the right as all "extreme".

While I liked Trump's victory message of "unification" I just don't see it happening anytime soon. He may unify one side, but it's going to take something big that I can't even think of to solve our massive divide. Someone showing up in the middle just isn't successful since then both sides find them untrustworthy.

There you go again, turning the words "alt left" into "Leonardo Dicaprio" in your mind while you thought no one was watching. Cute.

in my mind? read the article.
