Trump just redefined Alt Left and I now find myself a part of the Alt Left.

It's a little disturbing, but I find myself now a member of the Alt Left because the following are now Alt Left

Black
Hispanic
Asian
LGBTQ
Anti-Fascist
Anti-Nazi
Hate Hitler.
Hate Mussolini
Hate Illinois Nazis
Believe people are people and nobody is "sub-human"
Believe in equal justice for all.

Based on the president's remarks, if Hitler is the ultimate marker for Alt-Right, that makes Gandhi the ultimate marker for the Alt-Left.

Okay now, discomfort gone. I am now "Alt-Left" and proud because that puts me in the good company of the Greatest Generation, Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr.

I can accept that with pride.

3. His fellow neo-Nazis were really pushing that term on Twitter today



They need it in general usage to help shore up their false equivalencies.

Not a coincidence in my book that Trump pushed it during the presser.

7. While he pushed the alt-left idea that jobs and pay will end racism- he's playing both sides....

11. The woman who died was a Bernie Sanders supporter

that seems to have been the original definition.
