The “Alt-Left” Attacks Conservative Student at Charlottesville Vigil

Alt-Left activists attack a young conservative attending a vigil for Charlottesville.

Conservatives and Republicans of all stripes have condemned white nationalists and neo-Nazis who took part in the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. Caleb Slater chose to wear a Young America’s Foundation (YAF) baseball cap with the slogan “The Conservative Movement Starts Here” because he said it would offer “a symbol of peace.”

“I wore the hat to show that conservatives condemn the actions of the alt-right just as much as anyone else in our culture,” Slater said in a statement to YAF.

A member of Antifa noticed the hat and according to Slater’s account started giving him the middle finger and directed other alt-left activists in his direction.

“Are you with right wing media? Why do you have the fu**ing hat on? You’re with Young America’s Foundation?” yelled one Antifa activist at Slater. “We don’t want you here!”

Slater said he immediately turned his camera on so he could record if anyone tried to harm him, they immediately attempted to grab his camera and grabbed his hat, throwing it away. He said that three or four members choked him and dragged him by his shirt into the street where cars were present.

These are the same alt-left activists CNN’s Chris Cuomo compares to World War II veterans.

    The term alt right is used all the time…let’s keep using the term alt left. The left seem to hate that 🙂

      The Left seems to consider anyone in the 48% of the population who is to the right of center to be “extreme right.”

        only the voice of the alt left is heard in the news even Fox is hiding their alt left leaning. Anything that is not alt left is decried as alt right. There is no one speaking for the sane left anymore. This is how propaganda works and it is doing exactly what was intended it to do, that is to cause a massive divide in this country. United we stand divided we fall and boy are we falling.

        The “moderate left” considers anyone who is even a half-step east of Stalin to be “extreme right.” They turn even upon their own like wolves for even slightly stepping out of the cult’s hard-line agenda. They’re even calling centrists Nazis now.

        These people are severely deranged and incredibly dangerous to let roam the streets.

      Ok, but the alt-left has essentially become the mainstream left. It’s the largest case of mass hysteria and dumbing-down I’ve seen in my lifetime. The never-Trumpers are like the populace in the move Idiocracy.

        Trump gave the Democrat party one last chance to separate themselves and disavow the violent terrorist groups among them. Instead of accepting the label “alt-left” as an out, they instead accepted and embraced the violence, calling for even more of it.

        There is no “alt-left” that is true; there is just the left. They are all violently authoritarian and completely unashamed in their lust to murder anyone who disagrees with them, even slightly, for political power.

      I have been using alt left since before the election. Killary made up the whole alt right thing when Bill was running for president, as a way to demonize all who do not support her and Bill. It was Bull shit in the 90’s and it is bull shit today. But the left can not argue facts so they cry and call names like the toddlers they are.

      • GTKRWN

        Cry, call names, and occasionally commit acts of terrorism when they can’t win an election. Business as usual for the Hillary clan, really. Liberals have never committed a single violent act, it’s just that Trump supporters occasionally get into accidents where they fall down an elevator shaft onto a bike lock. :^)

      The alt-Left believes all the same things as the rest of the Left, but are willing to put on masks, burn police cars, murder policemen… and throw rocks.

    It’s not the alt-left.


    No one on the left ever condemns this stuff. They just throw out the false accusations to try to justify the violence against our side.

      It will also open up rhetorical space for moderates (like Dave Rubin), so people can see there’s more than a militant binary to identify with.

      • GTKRWN

        August 16, 2017 at 10:56 pm

        But the libtards consider anyone who disagrees with them even in the slightest to be a Nazi rayciss. If a gay jew with a black boyfriend can be a “white supremacist Nazi…” according to the libtard, how do you think moderates, centrists, or anything with an intelligence greater than a flatworm will be treated when they don’t fall in the party line?

        • Dreamkeepers

          August 17, 2017 at 8:27 am

          “A militant binary is all that the libtard will allow.” If you really want to crush leftist ideology, you have to be willing to operate outside the framework they ‘allow’ for you. Why let them set the terms? In fact, looking at the conditions they are so eager to impose should reveal much about their fears.

          A formidable strategist will position themselves to engage in battles that actually matter. Seek their weak points, fracture their support- rather than strengthen it by falling into a propaganda trap.

          If you find yourself in a brick lobbing contest, by all means, do what you must to protect yourself. But don’t be fooled- you can never defeat ideas with bricks.

            August 17, 2017 at 11:14 am

            Why let (((them))) set the terms? Because they control the message. You aren’t going to get your side of the story out as long as the lying media remains in control. Are you going to ask CNN and MSNBC to stop lying, like they have been non-stop for the last 10 years they’ve been working as employees of the DNC?

            How are you going to get a message out to the masses when a billion dollar propaganda engine is feeding them nothing but lies? We’ve sat through almost a solid year of violent attacks while the (((media))) still denies any wrongdoing on one side. This message has not changed. This message will not change.

            Remember, attacking the press makes you a Nazi, because they happen to be just completely coincidentally majority Jewish. Try to speak publicly through other channels, they call you a nazi, threaten to murder your family, rape your dog, and come with weapons to make sure you don’t speak. Resort to non-MSM channels, they attack your funding when they’re not threatening your life. Oops, you tried to use a platform (((they))) control to speak on? Guess we’ll have to shut it down.

            I have no intention of defeating this with bricks. Bricks are too heavy to carry in the field have have terrible ballistics. Now maybe if we could invent something that threw tiny bricks at a very high speed…

            Though you are right. Attacking the leftist puppets directly is pointless. You need to hunt down and destroy the ones that control their strings. But oi vey, that’s exactly what da nazis did too…

    It’s all fun and games until the REAL Nazis show up and start stabbing or shooting people.
    The swastika waving morons are LARPers, but the real thing does exist in and out of prisons nationwide. They don’t go for political demonstrations and aren’t very big in terms of raw numbers, but they punch FAR above their weight class when it comes to violence. They’ll also be far more comfortable in MaxSec prison than any middle class NeoMarxist who loves to preach about diversity and white privilege while playing revolutionary.
    They aren’t coming out to play yet, but keep putting blood in the water and the sharks will come cruising eventually.
    Perhaps the alt left would do well to consider that. But of course they won’t.

    • GTKRWN

      August 16, 2017 at 10:49 pm

      It will be fun. Of course the only people stabbed and shot so far have been due to violent left-wing terrorists assaulting people for the last 18 months on the sole grounds that “they be white, so they be rayciss.” When people finally start shooting back the war isn’t going to last long.

      It’s amazing how an entire platform of “fuck whitey, we want to see you all dead…” sponsored by globalist-worshipping jews leads to militant white groups who don’t want to see their own genocide fighting back against them. Yet the lying jew pretends this was some sort of shock that they ally with the only candidate that didn’t base their entire party platform on “fuck you rayciss cracka-ass cracka crackas! We gon brown your children, we Mexico now!” Odd how that works.

    In all this mayhem, we forget to ask the only relevant question in trying to assign guilt:
    Who threw the first punch. Almost without exception, it’s someone on the extreme right.

    The word of the day kids, is ratio. My guess 10 to 1. For every one time the left strikes first there are ten cases where the right does.

    As the unofficial leader of the alt right I feel for you but at the same time Im glad you learned a hard lesson about dealing with commies. Your best bet is to methodically construct a plan to take out as many of them as you can. See anders brevick. None of that church shooting , car ramming noob shit. Take your time and do it right.

    Yes, we are all Nazis to the noble warriors of Antifa.
    How long will it take for a person on the left to have enough integrity to denounce Antifa as fascist thugs?
    I ain’t holding my breath.

    Instead of alt-Left, let’s call them the fascist-Left. Calling them alt-Left implies an equivalence to the alt-Right, and it further implies that they are just a fringe, when they seem to have mainstream support. Or, if we call them the brown-shirts, they’ll eventually figure out that Hitler is one of the their own.
