"In some respects, Trump thinks more like a right-leaning Colonel Blimp living in China; he doesn' ...
Man, you must have mistaken the tea-party movement, which was sponsored by a California-based group supportive of the Republican party back to 2009, for the alt-right movement, which also began in 2009 and has gained traction among altra-conservatives ever since then. It's not the same.
The first group consists of populists who inveigh against excessive taxation and government intervention in the private sector while supporting stronger immigration controls; however, it would be wrong to call them white supremacists largely because most of them are not receptive to the idea that it's time for America to outgrow cultural diversity.
The alt-right movement's white leaders, say, Richard Spencer and Steve Bannon, are foam-flecked anti-Semite sorts who are inclined to utter in-your-face remarks against other races, using social media to agitate for White supremacy, just like the KKK did.
The alt-right movement has unmoored scores of British and American bright minds, who are apprehensive that America runs the risk of being snookered into plumping for nativism or even ostracism, as opposed to pluralism.
In a sense, Trump is not a blithering racist compared with some supporters of the alt-right movement: Trump's family also came to America from Germany and his current wife was not born in America as well. Plus, he wouldn't have decided to eject Steve Bannon from the white house if he had chosen to schmear the niminy-piminy leaders of the alt-right movement up.
