…roups that liberals have dwelled on so endlessly as supposed ascendant forces in American politics. Let’s just be clear that the “alt-right,” such as it exists, explicitly attempted to exaggerate their prominence as a political force by flooding journalists on Twitter with memes, insults, and haranguing. Because so many political journalists use Twitter religiously, these “alt-right” people correctly assumed that such trolling would eventually intrude on their consciousnesses, and eventually give them the misbegotten idea that the “alt-right” was a real political force to be reckoned with.
That they did. A friend of mine, research-y type, even found the sites where they cross managed their blocked and fresh accounts. It’s not a new play.
