The Alt-Right hadn't even been seriously addressed by major media prior to Hillary's speech spotlighting it. All those people who've launched the term into the stratosphere will, if they move beyond the headlines of the last couple of days will find members of the Alt-Right where they are. The perspectives they'll get will be Richard Spencer's, John Derbyshire's, Steve Sailer's, and Vox Day's, not BuzzFeed's sophomoric misrepresentation of their perspectives.
Team Hillary is dumping gasoline on the Alt-Right fire.
In the short run, it probably makes sense tactically. Fear is a major--probably the primary--electoral motivator. It's why Trump is wise to focus on the security angle of Muslim immigration into the West rather than the social, cultural and biological incompatibilities even though these are all far more consequential. It's also why Hillary has stopped talking about her qualifications and started talking non-stop about how a president Trump will blow up the world.
But the amount of time remaining before the Alt-Right replaces the Respectable Right just got a lot shorter. We are where the energy is, the innovation is, the fight is. Our momentum will continue to grow in response to this wailing and gnashing of teeth from the top of the political pyramid.
We're also where the youthful dissidence is. To support Hillary is to fellate the System. To wear a red hat is to give that System the middle finger.
