Side note: you are not the leftist equivalent of the "altright" unless you are explicitly attempting to rehabilitate Soviet communism and/or Stalin. "Bernie is a swell guy and we should kinda sorta maybe be a little more like Norway" is not the same as sieg heiling Trump and calling for ethnic cleansing. Fucking idiots.
Not at all saying that you do this, just that you post sparked the thought...
What's the exact day that the media/internet officially overuses "altright" to the point where the insult/description loses all its power?
O/U is set for June 23, 2017.
Just for the record, the guy who actually coined the term altright was the one sieg heiling Trump and [still] calling for ethnic cleansing. [GUESS WHO HE ROOTED FOR IN THE MOST RECENT SUPER BOWL?????] It's not some term of derision that was created by the filthy jew media, it's a euphemism that was invented by the neo-nazis themselves. Therefore, while it might eventually become a meaningless, blanket insult like "fascist" did, I don't think you're really coming at this from the right angle.
Yeah, I didn't come at it from the origin angle in any way, shape, or form.
Besides all that, uhhhhh, thanks, I guess?
I should clarify...I wasn't accusing you yourself of being a paranoid, extreme anti-media wingnut. Really. I was taking the opportunity to mock these people's beliefs, and I guess. I was just saying that this is a term that people used to describe themselves, so I don't know if the media will really use it as a blanket insult, instead of neonazi or neofascist or whatever.
I'm all for mocking those people, so please have at it. I will en joy.
Eventually, imo, the term will reach the oversaturation point and the media will play a role, though probably not nearly as much as internet bloggers.
Just a working theory.
Ethic cleansing chatter in the year of our lord anytime after the 1950's though....WT actual F!!!
