wasn't there some big blowout on the extreme right during the 1960s here having to do with the fact that they really didn't want to adhere to a european ideology? therefore the vast majority of the alt-right folks are "nationalists" of some stripe, or other ideologies such as a coterie of laveyan satanists for some reason, but the neo-nazis get the bulk of the attention because, well, they have the evil genius of goebbels working for them and know propaganda and how to manipulate symbolism, and the broadcast media is very lazy . . . in the book god, guns & glory (finch, 1982) the author interviewed an f b i agent who said there were about 500 of them (neo-nazis) and "about a third of them are looking out for the cops" . . . now, with the natural population increase, there are what, now, 625 of them? yes, lots of the alt-right crowd are anti-semites, but the brownshirts didn't have a monopoly on that evil nonsense . . .
meanwhile, there probably are not much more than that of *real* nazis left, many of whom would be pushing 100 years old at this point and still have reason to keep their heads down . . . none the less, there are plenty of people who have family members, or themselves, who suffered under them and their fellow travellers in one way or another, and i'm sure all are at least moderately concerned about the awful taste of the alt-right, but the moral of this story: stop using nazi as a meta-syntactic variable for people with whom u disagree. it still means something, u know . . .
