Jeff Goldstein: The Alt-Right Is The Mirror Image Of The New Left – The Federalist

Vox Day concludes his alt-right manifesto by declaring: “The great line of demarcation in modern politics is now a division between men and women who believe that they are ultimately defined by their momentary opinions and those who believe they are ultimately defined by their genetic heritage. The Alt Right understands that the former will always lose to the latter in the end, because the former is subject to change.”

But what exactly is “genetic heritage”? Simple: it’s essentialism. It’s a blood thing. It’s racialism. At its core, it rejects the very ideas that animate the Declaration of Independence and that were later fully encapsulated in the Constitution with ratification of the fourteenth and nineteenth amendments.

By adopting this stance, the alt-right is inherently anti-American, and its “nationalism” is but a fig leaf for racial separatism.
