Let’s have a look at some modern and historically relevant labels. Note that I go by no label except Gay Universal Gaylord (GUG) and that is because I am a Theocratic Supremacist Dictator (which, according to a scumbag I talked to online, makes me worse than a fascist). Note that Gay = Happy.
Meaning of Political Terms (in Chronological Order)
Comrade (popular for a while, unknown origin): A common term in many identitarian movements, used when referring to another member of the same movement. Often associated with communism, due to the shared root of the word.
Anti-fa (1932, 2017): the paid militia of the communist interest. It seems strange that such an interest could rise in this day and age, given all the failures of communism, but it is not surprising to me. Communism promises an “anti-racist” utopia… This would be appealing to a poor unsuspecting youth, having been told they are “evil racists” their whole lives for their (mostly falsified) historical racial record.
It seems unlikely that sadistic glee could precipitate regret.
They (falsely) believe that a “communist revolution” will put an end to the potential of being labeled “racist'” (which they fear). They also fear defying the communists because communists are extremely cruel to apostates. Communism has killed over 100 000 000 people in the last 100 years. That wasn’t for nothing. It was because communist footsoldiers (i.e.: Antifa) are low-intellect & aggressive while their masters are cruel and sadistic. Once they get into political power, there is nothing stopping them from killing anyone they decide is a threat to their system.
MK Ultra (since the 1950s): A mind control program used on US citizens. Has several active “Manchurian Candidate” type figures in modern politics, making the movements inherently dangerous.
Alt Right (2008, 2016*): Although the term “Alt Right” was started by Paul Gottfried in 2008, its definition seemed to change over the course of its usage, since so many people tried to give a personal spin on it. Wikipedia now equates it with White Nationalism whereas CNN defined it as ” a loose collective of right wing trolls, including anarcho-capitalists”. It was an ironically all encompassing definition, given that most rational people reject mainstream conservatism (unless they are benefitting from such) yet so few are willing to wear the label “Alt Right”.
Alt – Left: This term appears to have been coined in 2016 (mainly by facebook shills) to dilute the anti-semitism of Pepe the Frog. Following the violence perpetrated by Anti-fa at the Charlottesville “Unite the Right”, it was popularised as a catch all term for leftists, specifically violent leftist extremists. Many sympathetic to leftism/communism did not like it, because it placed them into the same tent as admittedly doomed to fail violent extremists (who are now attempting to make an alliance with Juggalos).
