When talking about the alt-right, one encounters four primary definitions of the term:

  1. The Wikipedia / ADL / SPLC / Western Corporate Mainstream News Media definition: "The alt-right, or alternative right, is a loosely-connected and somewhat ill-defined grouping of white supremacists/white nationalists, neo-Nazis, neo-fascists, neo-Confederates, Holocaust deniers, and other far-right fringe hate groups." and "The Alternative Right, commonly known as the "alt-right," is a set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that “white identity” is under attack by multicultural forces using “political correctness” and “social justice” to undermine white people and “their” civilization."
  2. The "Practical Non-Leftist" definition: "The alt-right, or alternative right, is a glorified snarl word used by pseudo-progressive leftists, neo-liberals, Marxists, Communists, Socialists, and other authoritarians who are economically left-wing, to demonize anyone who doesn't adhere to conventional leftist orthodoxy and dogma."
  3. The Breitbart definition: "A specter is haunting the dinner parties, fundraisers and think-tanks of the Establishment: the specter of the “alternative right.” Young, creative and eager to commit secular heresies, they have become public enemy number one to beltway conservatives — more hated, even, than Democrats or loopy progressives."
  4. The Encyclopedia Dramatica definition: "TL;TR: /pol/tards who are also normies"

Which of these are true, if any? Or is the "real" alt-right something completely different?

it's and I almost hate using this work correctly a fluid term as an insult or blessing to describe a sector of right wing thought. either able to channel the "good" as one group sees of conservative views while leaving the rest, or the other side seeing the other way .

really it means "I like or don't like you but don't have a proper label"

It's 4.
Hell, /pol/ even called themselves "alt-right" proudly and still do at times. It's all been some big meme by summerfags and early-twenties NEETs with nothing better to do than jerk off to anime and shitpost "for the lulz kek deus vult MAGA amirite"

It's a massive LARP.
I'm not about to :powerlevel: my political leanings, but the alt-right really should be the aut-right.

They're the same thing as SJWs, just a bunch of screeching suburban kids. Equal in magnitude, opposite in direction.
The Law of Action-Reaction. It's money-making politics, and boy, does it make CNN/ABC/MSNBC/Fox some fucking money.

They are literally the same as the New Left in the 60's except Right-Wing. Sam Hyde's Government book is literally the same as the Steal this Book Book. They keep thinking that they will wake people up but they lack materialism. They are gonna end up the same fate as the hippies. Becoming what they hate.

A conservative has specific political views.
A liberal has specific political views.
A socialist has specific political views.

These are all words created to make it easier to convey a person's personal beliefs, even though that's impossible it's still a worthy effort to streamline shit. They are then simplified further by placing them on a line of left of right, where "center" is a punchline.

"Alt-right" has shit like "doesn't agree with left" or "bigot" or "right except complicated" like it's a Facebook relationship status.
If even lawmakers now insist that words (like 'gender') aren't real then there's no chance in a snowball's hell that a fucking Schrödinger's political stance is real.

No option for all of the above? The alt-right is a couple of neo-Nazis and far-right lunatics, but the progtards borrow their name as a slur for everyone to the right of Bernie Sanders. But at the same time, there actually is an "alternate right" movement which hates neocons and is anti-establishment, but this group doesn't have that much overlap with the alt-right (but does include the "alt-lite"). These guys overlap with ED's definition which is pretty much on the mark.

They're liberals. Oh wait that's what my normie friend thought when I explained their stance on Trump's actions in Syria to him.
Edit: I guess in his mind the only alternative to right was left. Not an alternative right.
