Trump’s Walnut Brain Makes Up Fake Enemy To Shield Alt-Right From Charlottesville Blame (TWEETS)

Hours after an anti-racism protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, turned deadly, President Donald Trump condemned groups on “both sides” of the debate. Even though, the white supremacists were the ones ramming a car into people.

President Trump said:

“What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right?”

Most people know of or at least have heard of the term “alt-right.” It is used to refer to a group of far-right Republicans that emerged during the 2016 presidential campaign.

The term “alt-left” is also floating around the internet. They are trying to create an opposition to the alt-right and create this false equivalence between the two. The problem is that there is no group that has come out and called themselves the “alt-left.”

Similar to the umbrella “fake news,” right-wing media outlets are using this term “alt-left” to refer to any group that they disagree with.

Of course, various people are taking to Twitter with memes and with their own definitions of “alt-left.” Here are just a few tweets on the subject:

After the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend, President Trump has refused to condemn the alt-right. He is, instead, going after the “alt-left” and refusing to condemn the neo-Nazis and white supremacists.

After President Trump used the term “alt-left,” media outlets scrambled to try and define the term. CNN quoted the Director of the Anti-Defamation League, Oren Segal, who said:

“There is no such movement as the alt-left. Obviously, there are left-wing extremists but there is no congruence between the far-left and the alt-right.”

There you go, Trump. The “alt-left’ doesn’t exist.
