One particularly useful chapter in Alt-right is when David Wendling talks to ?ordinary? self-ascribed members of the alt-right. He notes that: The conventional wisdom, established by the Breitbart story and largely unquestioned by other media?was that the people within the movement were by and large young pranksters who didn?t take things, including themselves, too seriously,.

Urghh?no thanks. I?ve never been to Croke Park for a gig, or anywhere like it. The largest ?venues? I?ve been to were Oxygen in the mid-2000s and the 3Arena. Didn?t much like the first, the sound was often disrupted by wind direction. The second I?ve found actually pretty good. Seen a range of groups there, […]A

Reading this it struck me that it was curious how immigration related issues have tripped up Trump, and before him May (Windrush) and of course Merkel, but then, the thought struck me that immigration has an almost absurd emphasis in the current political environment, that in a way it?s no surprise that it should – […]A
