The Alt-Right Cuts Ties With Donald Trump

I’m currently gagged on Twitter.

I can’t see everything that is going on, but it looks like the entire Alt-Right has abandoned Donald Trump over Syria. Everyone from VDARE to Paul Joseph Watson to Matt Heimbach is off the Trump Train. I can only see what is going on from my Facebook and GAB and it is brutal.

The Alt-Right began as a reaction to George W. Bush and the Iraq War. Trump’s actions in Syria tonight struck a powerful chord with our generation. His coalition has crumbled overnight. For many, this attack on Syria was too evocative of W. and the Iraq War which was the event that shaped our political consciousness. He abandoned his own supporters and chose neocon warmongers. This is what happens when you surround yourself with all the people who didn’t support you and give them lucrative jobs because you are afraid of offending the media.

Anyway, we survived 16 years of W. and Obama, and we will survive Donald Trump.
