Dear Media, Please Stop Normalizing the Alt-Right: New at Reason

Friday, November 25, 2016 7:18
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Much of the mainstream media seems pretty motivated to normalize the alt-right. Why?

David Harsanyi writes:

Why does the March for Life, a rally that attracts tens of thousands of anti-abortion Americans to Washington, D.C., every year get less prominent media coverage than a fringe neo-Nazi gathering? Because institutional media and white nationalists have formed a politically convenient symbiotic relationship.

For Jew-hating racists, the attention means they can playact as a viable and popular movement with pull in Washington. In return, many in the media get to confirm their own biases and treat white supremacy as if it were the secret ingredient to Republican success.

Meanwhile, this obsessive coverage of the alt-right not only helps mainstream a small movement but it’s also exactly what the bigots need and want to grow.

    “Because institutional media and white nationalists have formed a politically convenient symbiotic relationship.”

    It is of course an attempt at promoting, inciting violence and fears, to project the idea of victimization. That’s not exactly a new thing. It’s a really stupid playbook, but apparently, it is still quite convincing. There is far more in common with the supposed alt-right, the leftists, nationalism and “communism” than people seem to understand, apparently people are in denial about what Orwell told you about.

    Soros, lefties, supposed rights, etc. Yeah, how about no?
