    There wasn't such a thing as 'alt right' until a few years ago, yet now we have both. Welcome to reality.

    Since I've seen your reading comprehension issues in the past, I'll just point out that I never stated the "reacting party" is the the one that initiated anything. Words matter, be they in English or Italian.

    No, I said we have assholes on both sides killing each other. Still searching for the problem with that.

    Mmmm... nope. See, in order to speak of something in the real world it has to actually exist.

    "Alt-right" does. I believe Spencer came up with it as a label for himself and his ilk. He invented it therefore it exists.
    "Alt-left" --- not so much. Unless you can demonstrate it's a real thing.

    And if you're going to point to that trainwreck of a news conference yesterday --- consider the source.

    You know what, I don't care what you call them or who you think gets to use what terms.

    They're all assholes on both sides of this one.

    p.s. Still with the reading issues! I never mentioned nor pointed to any news conference. Focus.
