Yes, Adolf Hitler, the man for whom one-point perspective was apparently too difficult. What a putz.

Yes, Alexander the Great who was known for being insular, isolated, and never adopting anything from neighboring cultures. . .

To be fair, it was mainly the successors that adopted stuff.  For the most part, Alexander was too busy trying to kill non-Macedonians to really get his multi-culti on.

Nonsense.  The US population, according to the US Census Bureau, is currently 40% non-white.  White Children, 5 years of age and under, already are a minority.   This is the last hurrah for the people who think Trump is their savior.

I find it more telling that he couldn't paint people.  They were just mostly shapeless blobs.  I think that's somewhat telling of his worldview.

Or he was just a bad artist.

The alt-light promotes a slightly softer set of messages. Its figures - such as Milo Yiannopoulos, Paul Joseph Watson and Mike Cernovich - generally frame their work as part of an effort to defend "the West" or "Western culture"

It can't happen, it's impossible.  Consider that the white population of the US is considerable older (median age) than the non-white population.  Non-white males of military age probably outnumber white males of military age at this point.  Even if the majority of whites went for an American form of Nazism, they don't have the muscle to prevail.  It can't happen.

Fluent in the language of online irony and absurdism, and adept at producing successful memes, alt-lighters have pulled off something remarkable: They've made far-right ideas hip to a subset of young people, and framed themselves as society's forgotten underdogs.

Right after the election, I heard a reporter talking to some young wingnuts, and this guy was telling her, "We memed him into the Presidency! We just memed him into it!" A couple of them were hooting and yelling Yeah! and stuff.

It was then that I got a bad feeling about all this.

Which was a culturally Greek state within the borders of modern Greece. The difference between a Macedonian and an Athenian was no greater than that between an Ionian and a Dorian, or Spartan and a Theban.

There are too many troll accounts that run rampant.  People who point out these trolls or argue with the trolls tend to have their posts moderated.  A lot of questionable posts from the trolls does not get moderated.

These accounts that seem to get away with murder on this site are the Drewgs, formerly known as Amigos de Drew, forever known as reich-wing Nazi farkheads.

"Just the numbers" doesn't tell the whole story. Wealth, power, the military, civil authority, police. Who controls these? Alt right Nazi scum have infiltrators in positions of power all over 'Murca and they have Curtis's Cronies as online warriors to bsab away the bad shiat they do.
