What Does The ‘Alt-Right’ Want? The ADL Explains In A Handy Graphic

    What does the “alt-right” really want?

    Last month the white nationalist Counter-Currents editor John Morgan laid out the movement’s principles at a talk in Stolkholm. A slick infographic of nine core demands of the “alt-right” was later posted online.

    At first glance, the demands and language appear surprisingly tame.

    So Mark Pitcavage, a researcher for the Anti-Defamation League, offered his own “annotation,” parsing out meanings and references to the nine parts of the manifesto that might escape everyday readers.

    “Alt-right”: “Strong, high-trust communities for our people.”
    ADL translation: “They hate non-whites and really seek a whites only society.”

    “Alt-right”: “Protection from the globalist elite.”
    ADL translation: “For the Alt Right, ‘globalist elite’ is mostly Jews.”

    “Alt-right”: “Protection from international corporate oppression.”
    ADL translation: “They don’t want trade with Jews and non-whites.”
