Trump Disavows the Alt-Right, Doesn’t Want to ‘Energize’ It (Video)

(Before It's News)

BIN note: If by now you haven’t figured out that Facebook and Google are in cahoots with the corrupt government, then I feel for you, but for those who are well aware of the issues it’s high time you switched over to Seen.life. It is a website that is similar to Facebook but without all the censorship.

President-elect Donald Trump told New York Times reporters on Tuesday that he disavows the fringe political movement that many say helped power his candidacy.

But he also rejected the idea that he bears responsibility for the growing prominence of groups espousing white nationalist viewpoints.

“I don’t think so, Dean,” Trump said in response to a question from Times executive editor Dean Baquet about if he has energized the “alt-right.”

The alt-right is a nationalist movement that embraces populism and white identity politics. At times, as was the case at a conference this weekend in Washington, adherents have used outright racist and anti-Semitic attacks to further their views.

Richard Spencer, a neo-Nazi leader who coined the term “alt-right,” opened a speech at the conference with the greeting: “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!”

“I don’t want to energize the group, and I disavow the group,” Trump told Baquet. “It’s not a group I want to energize, and if they are energized, I want to look into it and find out why.”

Asked point-blank about the conference featuring Spencer, Trump again disavowed any support.

“I disavow and condemn them,” Trump told Times reporters. He did chide them for continuing to ask about the topic though, telling one questioner: “Boy, you are really into [this issue].”

As a candidate, Trump brought in Breitbart News’ executive chairman Steve Bannon to help run his campaign, and he recently tapped him to be his chief strategist in the White House.

Bannon has been accused of making the site a platform for the alt-right, though he has disavowed its members’ espousal of racist and anti-Semitic views.

    Headline:

    “Trump Disavows the Alt-Right, Doesn’t Want to ‘Energize’ It (Video)”

    Really? When did that happen? In which video is there evidence of that happening?

    “President-elect Donald Trump told New York Times reporters on Tuesday that he disavows the fringe political movement that many say helped power his candidacy.”

    Citations given?

    Nope.

    Just some off-kilter posts with no substantiation whatsoever.

    If you’re going to wade into it, then why not come heavy?

    Seems to me like you’re just airing other noise.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, please.

    • Anyone with fingers can just put it in Google and find a megaton of sources coming up regarding it. Its not that complicated. It happened today and was all over international news.

    • Did you miss this entire part of the article?

      • I am beginning to believe that this whole “Alt Media” got Trump elected routine, is to cover the Pizzagate, Pedogate… whatever, one wishes to call it.
        I’m thinking that’s the real reason behind the attacks on alt media.

        • There is a big difference between alt media and alt right.

          Yes attacks on both.. I will defend alternative media… but you will not see me protecting alt right.

            My apologies, brother.

            You wrote:

            This term ‘alt-right’ (as it is now being used in the media) is somewhat new to me. My understanding of both the term and its nuances have now become somewhat more sophisticated.

            White nationalism is something I will never defend. (That is, actual white nationalism, such as is found at the Occidental Observer; as opposed to falsely so-called white nationalism, like we find at Breitbart dot com.) Similarly, neo-Nazi ideology and race-driven propagandists like Richard Spencer are something I will repudiate right along with you.

            My understanding of ‘alt-right’ had been a combination of alternative media with conservatism and I thought all the attacks from the left on the ‘alt-right’ targeting ‘racist’ views were just more hot air coming from the exasperated progressivists.

            Again, my apologies for prematurely impugning your article.
