Never heard of the alt-right movement? Well now might be a good time to learn who these guys are and what they represent.
It's important now more than ever, because they have taken over the campaign of one Donald trump, a man who just happens to be running to become president of the United States.
I have been reading up on them of late, and they are a scary bunch. (Think of them as the guys who couldn't get dates in high school, and now that they are adults , they will take their revenge on society any way that they can get it.)
We shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but Andrew Breitbart was a real asshole, who surrounded himself with other assholes, and he created a website that catered to assholes.
And now, one of those assholes, is running things over at camp trump.
"Here's what you need to know about the Breitbart News chairman who just became Donald Trump's new campaign CEO. On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s campaign announced Breitbart News chairman Stephen Bannon as its new CEO — shocking no one in the conservative world.
Conservatives joked openly for months about “Trumpbart” and the transformation of Breitbart.com into, essentially, Bannon.com, but it was still something of a surprise that Trump would so publicly embrace Bannon, a man who helped transform a mainstream conservative website into a cesspool of the alt-right. It also comes as a surprise — or at least it should — that the Republican National Committee appears ready to go along with the Bannon-Breitbart-Trump takeover over the party, even as the Trump campaign’s latest move means RNC Chairman Reince Priebus now sits, effectively, side by side with alt-right Trump fans.
