It appears that the Trump victory has brought some really odd stuff on the internet, one is a political ideology called Alt-Right (alternative right). I only heard about this term a few days ago and read various things about its opposition to globalism and other subjects presently discussed between the radical tendencies now coming out of the woodwork and the “smug” establishment conservatism.
All of a sudden, I find myself completely out of my depth with some very hard-core stuff coming from white supremacists in the US and even some form of vindication of aspects of Nazism. It is all very frightening. For the purpose of being informed, I found this in a Google search – Daily Stormer. Sturmabteilung? I do not endorse or approve this site but simply include it as an example for study. It all makes me very cold within. Trump seems quite supportive of Alex Jones, who makes me an Englishman laugh at his exaggerations and caricature of the enterprising American. David Icke is an Englishman, and is less vocal about the “shape-shifting alien reptiles”. I find myself drawn to some ideas expressed by these men, but the ideology taken as a whole seems both frightening and dangerous.
I am confident that the worst excesses will remain marginal, both in the USA and over here in Europe. I am one of the millions to be totally disenfranchised by mainstream politics and media, and now have to be so careful with the alternative as with a bomb in my hand or whatever.
We live in a time when we need to be open-minded to new information – but extremely critical and cautious, doing the best we can to verify things like multiculturalism, globalism and matters that seem to offend against Christian moral teaching. People get so steamed up about single-issues that the only healthy reaction is to disengage and study issues from different points of view. I got quite carried away last week, and I cannot help saying that many will come out of these changes disappointed.
Be sober and vigilant…
