Werth says we need to stop going along with this deliberate rebranding. This movement isn't "alternative medicine" or "alternative rock," it's fascism and it's getting people killed.

With a name like the Alt Right, [they] can tell themselves the movement isn’t really racist. A name like the Alt Klan [is] a reminder that white supremacy is a feature, not a bug, of the Alt Right, and that the movement was borne out of and is inseparable from white supremacy.

James Delingpole acknowledges white supremacy is part of the alt-right but argues the movement is really based on the backlash to conservatives caving to liberal interests, not white supremacy.

For years, from America to Europe to Australia, on a whole range of social issues from the environment to gay marriage to multiculturalism, diversity and gender, mainstream conservatism has far too eagerly conceded territory to the progressive opposition.

Elizabeth Nolan Brown says "Backwards-looking attitudes about race, religion, and sex have been a hallmark of the Republican coalition for decades" but they "are hardly grounds for Hitler Youth comparisons."

#AltWhiteSupremacy

The Onion satirized the entire idea of trying to figure out the alt-right's "real agenda." If you wave Nazi flags, chant fascist slogans, and rage incessantly about the supposed destruction of white European culture? You're a white supremacist and should be labeled as such.

Others think painting the entire movement with a fascist brush devalues the actual accusation of white supremacy, and makes the left look reactive and hysterical.
