The alt-right

I've just recently heard about this faction. I read up on them a bit more tonight.

It seems to include a lot of Men's Rights Activists who ignore, and dismiss sexism and misogyny.

It also seems to include a lot of young, white men, who dismiss systemic racism. They are the ones who loudly proclaim that "all lives matter" or make claims of "reverse racism".

This is also the group who complain about "political correctness". They are the ones who wonder why they can't use the "n word" or call women w*ores, or c***s, or worse.

Basically, it's a group of bitter, angry, assh*les, who have nothing better to do than troll people.

that goes by the name Milo Yiannopoulos and surprise surprise, the asshole works for Brietbart run by Trumps campaign manager.

He's one of only a few people who, if I ever run into them on the street, will be kicked in the nuts. He's truly a malignant polyp on the colon of humanity.

its really started with the Men's Rights Association and grew from there as they used the internet to find each other and their hatred of women drives the whole Trump movement.

From being on DU a long time and reading their stuff here posted by long time DUers I already knew this and glad the msm is finding out a little about it. It is about time.
