Hillary Clinton to give speech tomorrow on the ‘Alt-Right’ and Trumps embracing of it.

“Alt-right is not something Trump created. It’s something he tapped into,” said David Duke, a former Ku Klux Klan leader and Louisiana state lawmaker who said his current U.S. Senate bid was inspired by Mr. Trump and the rise of the alt-right.

The GOP nominee’s “America first” agenda reflects some of the alt-right’s core beliefs in limiting U.S. intervention in overseas military conflicts and targeting illegal immigration and free trade as economic and security perils.

The alt-right is characterized by mostly young, white men active on social media who tag mainstream Republicans as “cuckservatives,” favor memes featuring a green frog with Nazi insignia, and troll Jewish media figures online by putting three sets of parentheses around their names. Campaigns have been organized around hashtags such as #WhiteGenocide to perpetrate the idea that white people are being eradicated.

“The Trump campaign has been dog whistling all the way and said a whole host of things that go to the core of the alt-right movement,” said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, another civil-rights group.

1. So one of the so-called progressives on CNN today said this was

a bad idea because right now it is under the radar and if Hillary talks about it more people will become aware of it and want to join.

4. It's about time that someone exposed them. Trump has made it okay for them to come out of hiding.

3. The alt right are the direct descendants

of the far right that celebrated in the American streets every time Hitler took another country.
They wanted an alliance with Hitler against the Soviet Union.

6. Hey, some country music is gangbusters!

Hank Williams and Patsy Cline comer to mind... not to mention Buck Owens and Merle Haggard.

And that's only from the more recent practitioners of the art.
