When did ‘Nationalism,’ ‘Alt-Right’ and ‘Populism’ become dirty words?

Nationalists.

Without fail, within five minutes of reading or viewing any of the Establishment Media outlets, you’ll be told that the words “nationalist,” alt-right” or “populist” are somehow on the same level as 40-grit toilet paper or the upside of necrophilia.

Needless to say, this is just another example of the MSM strong-arming us to accepting their definitions.

Rest assured, not only will I not break… I refuse to bend, even a little. So while the likes of the New York Times, CNN, etc, do their best to be the Language Gestapo, let’s break-down what these words really mean.

Alt-Right.

Nationalism – According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary: loyalty and devotion to a nation; especially : a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations.

Sounds to me like good old-fashioned patriotism, political correctness be damned.

Alt-Right – There is no textbook definition for this word, but know this has nothing to do with Skinheads, the KKK, Nazis or eugenics. After all, the Democrats have cornered the market on eugenics, and when it comes to squashing free speech they certainly give Skinheads, the KKK, and Nazis a run for their money.

Anyhow, the term alt-right was coined in 2008 by philosopher, historian, and columnist Paul Gottfried when he described conservatives who not only rejected totalitarian, big-government Democrats (think Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer), but also in rejecting totalitarian, big-government Republicans (think Lindsay Graham and John McCain).

In its original meaning, alt-right is synonymous with independent conservative or conservatarian.

Personally speaking, alt-righters like me stand against RINOs, The Deep State, and The Swamp. Just like how my president stands against them.

Populism – Again, according to Merriam-Webster: a member of a political party claiming to represent the common people; a believer in the rights, wisdom, or virtues of the common people.

Kind of like the Founding Fathers, huh?

Populist.

Looking more like Brian Wilson’s notion of what the perfect 1960s California Girl would look like, France’s Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is actually well on her way to becoming a Gallic combination of Donald and Ivanka Trump.

As a sitting member of the French parliament representing the 3rd constituency of Vaucluse in the southeast of the nation, the 27-year-old lawmaker is already one of the leading figures in the hardcore right-wing Front National (FN) party.

With the upcoming national election for president not that far off in the future, the betting is against the current head honchoette of the FN, her aunt Marine Le Pen will more than likely place second to Republican party former Prime Minister François Fillon.

Between Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, populism is all the rage on the continent, and it looks like Maréchal-Le Pen just could be sitting in the catbird seat for the 2022 election if Auntie Marine fails to win the presidency.
