CNN: What Does The Alt-Right Do Now?

“It’s still sinking in; we memed the absolute MADMAN into the White House.”

When all the votes were in, the loudest celebrations — like this comment on Reddit — might have been online. When Republicans and conservatives were faltering in their support for Donald Trump, one group stood up unwaveringly: the cyber warriors of the “alternative right.”

Trump’s online support was a complicated galaxy. Conservatives, right-wingers and conspiracy theorists all rallied round his flag. But the most vocal group, the group best versed in packaging their message and hurling it in a way irresistible to a media obsessed with the shocking and offensive, were the alt-right. …

In a year that has seen the establishment take two heavy beatings in the form of Brexit and Trump’s surprise victory, the alt-right will start to look further afield. Elections in the Netherlands and France have caught their eye: It’s time to Make Europe Great Again.

Dedicated forums for far-right candidates Geert Wilders (the Netherlands), Marine Le Pen (France) and Norbert Hofer (Austria) are in overdrive. “The American Meme Soldiers are here to help liberate France!!! Man your battlestations, fellow meme warriors!” goes one Reddit post. “Centipedes! We’re fighting on two fronts now. Get in there! Even if you don’t care about France, you need to care about stopping the liberal disease!” goes another. …”

Great to see this enthusiasm bleeding over into the liberation of Europe. How about some memes of Pepe riding a panzer tank into France or Pepes storming the beaches of Normandy on D-Day? What about Pepe riding into Austria and proclaiming Anschluss?
