The Alt Left is just the Alt Right, except they like Mao way more than they like Hitler.
Sort of correct.
The Alt Left are basically Alt Right Communists.
Sort of right.
The Alt Left is the left wing of the Alt Right.
Sort of, yes.
I would imagine an “Alt-Left” would go beyond and be above that, putting class struggle over identity politics without using “class above all else” to shut down any debate over racism/sexism/etc. A Left that didn’t think accusing people of racism is enough to dissuade them from voting Trump/UKIP/Le Pen/et al but actively sought ways to persuade those with racist tendencies to not be racist.
A Left that was able to inform the working class that the Alt-Right and Far-Right are bad news for the working class as a class – as well as the well-documented ways they are bad news for various oppressed demographics. Finally, above all else, a Left that rejected the loopy elements of Identity Politics (as commonly found in academia particularly in the US but an issue in the UK as well, especially with the NUS) and injected some much needed rationality into the debate.
Aren’t the Alt Left just social democrats who are critical of immigration? Something like that.
Seems like there are already people self-describing as the ‘Alt-Left’ in the sense of being the ‘leftwing of the Alt-Right’ — from what I’ve seen, social democratic on economic matters, very hostile when it comes to Identity Politics, feminism, etc., occasionally antisemitic.
Probably one of the best definitions so far.
There’s definitely a return to imagined Christian values/hetero nuclear family at core …you could have an Alt-Left that did that too I guess if you really wanted.
There are Alt Left people pushing exactly this. And anyone into traditional morals or traditional values with Left economics would absolutely be welcome here.
I think the Alt Left is the left wing of the Alt Right. That is how it seems to me anyway. Where the Alt Right embraces fascism, they embrace concepts like Maoism.
That’s about it.
Having said that, I think there’s space for some form of Leftism that is skeptical of both market and state but doesn’t sign up to any of the current far Left ideologies. And has good memes.
Sort of, yes.
Again, it’s just a liberal guy who is a White Nationalist. It’s basically the leftwing of the Alt-Right as the blog itself says or some kind of lite version of Nazbol with emphasis on the Naz and not a whole lot of Bolshevism.
Discussing Rabbit’s page. Nazbol Lite is a pretty good way to describe Rabbit, too.
Class Left is better. Or Classical Libertarians. Or Class Realists.
Classical Libertarians no; Class Left and Class Realists are both perfect. We are “class reductionists.”
We’re back to “we want a UKIP of the left” again.
A UKIP of the Left would not be a bad thing. It would seem to be an Alt Left project.
