New research shows that the ‘alt-right’ has not yet become a mainstream ideology
New research indicates that the “alt-left” is not a mainstream political ideology, according to a new study published by a major academic journal.
The article, which appeared in the Journal of Social and Political Psychology, was authored by an independent scholar, Christopher Harms, and is titled “The Alt-Left: A Theory and Practice.”
Harms has studied the alt-right, which he describes as a far-right movement that emerged during the 2016 presidential campaign, and has argued that its adherents are motivated by hatred and racism and that its members are the most “pro-white” groups in the U.S. Harms’s research is based on interviews with people who describe themselves as members of the alt, a loosely defined term for white nationalist or white supremacist groups.
HarMS’s study, titled “Alt-Left vs. Alt-Right: A Critical Analysis,” found that there is a wide range of opinions on the alt within the alt right.
However, while the alt left has grown in popularity and adherents over the past several years, there has been no concerted effort to address it within the broader political and intellectual movements.
“The alt-left’s rise in popularity is in part due to its perceived ability to appeal to many voters who have been marginalized in American society,” Harms writes in the study.
“While the alt movements were able to exploit the racial divide and white supremacy in American politics, they did not achieve the same success with white voters as they had with African Americans, Hispanics, and others.
In contrast, white voters increasingly responded positively to the alt movement, with many identifying as alt-lite, or alt-progressive, and supporting its political positions.”
Harvesons findings suggest that while the “left” has been more interested in addressing the “Alt Right” and other issues, its efforts have been “very limited,” even though there are numerous organizations dedicated to the cause.
For example, a website called the Alt Right Research Network lists “alt left” and “alt right” as terms for different movements, but also offers support for other movements.
Harmed argues that the alt is “not an ideology, it’s a way of life.”
He points to alt-conservatism, a political ideology that advocates for preserving the U, or traditional American, culture and customs.
He points out that the phrase alt- right was coined by “The Daily Stormer,” a white nationalist website that has been described as the “most prominent online white supremacist publication in the United States.”
The Daily Stormers “purpose is to attack the perceived enemy as a ‘race realist’ who is trying to destroy white people and to make America racist again,” Harmed writes.
“Alt left is a more specific term that is used to refer to the far left.”
The Alt-right has attracted the attention of some prominent figures in the altright movement, including Milo Yiannopoulos, the “social justice warrior” who was banned from Twitter in October for inciting violence.
Yiannopoulos’s tweets, which included racist and anti-Semitic statements, prompted the alt alt right to take aim at him, and he was removed from the platform, which has been a focus of harassment campaigns against the alt.
The alt-righters also believe that the media is an enemy to their cause, and they often refer to news outlets as “liberal fascists,” a term they use to describe liberal journalists.
Harments conclusion that the Alt-left is not mainstream political ideas comes in the context of Trump, who is a popular figure in the political right.
Trump has been criticized for not using the “tough talk” and the “America First” rhetoric he has been advocating to win back voters from the “establishment.”
However, the altRight has taken aim at Trump’s policies, with Harms arguing that Trump has failed to address issues like gun control, immigration, and other important issues that are important to the “white middle class.”
“Trump’s economic policies have been unpopular with the alt” and are a major obstacle to the Alt Left’s goals, Harms concludes.
Harum and Harms also disagree on whether or not the alt has become a dominant political force.
The “alt is not really a political party, it is a political movement,” Harmans conclusion is based upon his interviews with members of “alt,” and he says that the group has not grown in influence.
However of course, Harman believes that the movement has taken a “very, very radical step” to become a political force, especially in the past few years.
He writes, “Many in the Alt right have gone into political office, including a number of politicians and even some who have run for office themselves, and have been elected to office.”
HarMS is not the only academic who has questioned the alt’s relevance.
In May, a group of researchers led by University of Chicago professor Richard Cohen called for the alt to be
