I know plenty of alt-righters identify as Libertarians in mixed company to present as something less threatening, although deep down, they felt free markets and brown people don't mix.
The ultimate goal of the alt-right was to become the new Republican Party. Sadly, they failed spectacularly at the goal.
So being alt-right is acting like a libertarian but secretly you're a nazi?
No, that seems like the definition the media is currently using, but not a very legitimate one. Unfortunately, alternative is a very very wide category, much like with music, it's everything except the mainstream. So some alt-right are more centrish than the republican party, some are further right, some have some crazy pet issue or another, some are just republicans who feel the existing republicans have betrayed them...
The Tea Party was alt-right. The weird tiny neo-nazi groups are alt-right (most of the time). But they aren't THE alt-right. THE alt-right is, for lack of a less lame term, the "silent majority" who theoretically have conservative values but don't particularly like the republican party.
