Every now and then someone writes an article so blindingly tone-deaf and stupid it must be seen to be believed. There was “An Establishment Conservative’s Guide to the Alt Right” by Milo Yiannopoulos (or his interns) from March of this year, which attempted to portray the racist alt-right as a group of well-meaning nationalists who post anti-Semitic and pro-fascist memes just to get a rise out of the stuffy, political elites. Yiannopoulos, who is both gay and Jewish, received mixed reactions to the article, with Neo-Nazis like Andrew Anglin and Joe Roper denouncing him as an untrustworthy “degenerate.” Now, we have a useless thinkpiece from Joshua Seidel at The Forward — a progressive, Jewish magazine.
