Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, a white nationalist and former head of Breitbart (“The platform of the alt-right.*”), recently said in an interview, “Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That’s Power.” *A BS term for a set of far-right ideologies, groups and individuals whose core belief is that “white identity” is under attack by multicultural forces using “political correctness” and “social justice” to undermine white people and “their” civilization. Characterized by heavy use of social media and online memes, Alt-Righters eschew “establishment” conservatism, skew young, and embrace white ethno-nationalism as a fundamental value.
