This is the definition of the alt-right I had known for the last year before Trump won and Bannon was appointed.
Our definition of the alt-right is younger people who are anti-globalists, very nationalist, terribly anti-establishment.
And Bannon, in his own words:
"I'm an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy," Bannon said in the interview.
"And I have admired nationalist movements throughout the world, have said repeatedly strong nations make great neighbors. I've also said repeatedly that the ethno-nationalist movement, prominent in Europe, will change over time. I've never been a supporter of ethno-nationalism."
Bannon said that "the black working and middle class and the Hispanic working and middle class, just like whites, have been severely hurt by the policies of globalism."
This, I agree with and is what I’ve been trying to articulate on Facebook over the last week. Nationalism isn’t necessarily bad, but ethno-nationalism or white nationalism is. And I’ve never seen an article on Breitbart stand by either.Permalink
