Because he clarifies for you the usage and meaning of the term "alt left". You seemed to think it was reserved for all out communists or something - at least actual lefties of some kind. You seemed to think it had a meaning, and made sense, and referred to a definable group of people. Yeah, they kind of are. They're certainly coordinated - the catch phrases, the fad terms, the talking points, the falsehoods and deceptions, all turn up in the whole pile around the same time. You have noticed that, I hope? The feedback and feed forward between Fox and Breitbart and the Republican Party media team is especially obvious, during a campaign. These people are not at all independent of each other. One example: you are familiar with the book deal wingnut welfare system, right? Where some guy who has done a dirty job well for the Republican Party suddenly finds their literary skills in such high demand that a book publisher will pay them hundreds of thousands of dollars in advance money for the right to publish their very first book as soon as they write it? Entire branches of major publishing houses have been set aside for these deals. Well, Mary Matalin, formerly head of the Republican Party's media operations, founded one such branch, and that branch just handed over 250,000 dollars of advance money for a book yet to be written or even outlined by one Milo Yiannopoulos - an "alt right" guy, also an editor at Breitbart News, welcome and supported by Fox, and major speaker at the Republican Convention http://www.salon.com/2016/07/20/inside_milos_gays_for_trump_virulently_anti_islam_party_at_the_rnc/ And who else is on that particular line of the wingnut welfare gravy train? https://newrepublic.com/minutes/139...ight-troll-milo-yiannopoulos-250000-book-deal The former head of the RNC's media operations - the whole campaign thing - has financed James O'Keefe - handed him money. That's one step - troll to top. All I claimed was connection. All you denied was connection. You claimed there were all these levels, and the trolls were far from the mainstream. What I asked you for is a couple of names of people who are on those "higher Republican levels" you claim exist and I say don't exist. I have already named a whole shmear of quite high level US public figures that operate on what you were calling the "lower levels", including denizens of Congress and the White House and mainstream major media pundits. I have pointed out that the distance between the troll level (your term) and the very top of the US mainstream Republican media is one step - I provided proof, via two or three links of different connections.
