(Village Voice) -- Last week, Hillary Clinton gave a speech associating Donald Trump with conspiracy nuts like Alex "Sneezing Fit" Jones and something called the alt-right, a consortium of out-and-proud racists and misogynists.
The alt-rightist reacted as you would expect — and so did rightbloggers, when an NFL quarterback who refused to stand for "The Star-Spangled Banner" gave them the opportunity.
As longtime readers of this column know, in any American discussion of race rightblogger standard operating procedure is to deny the existence of racism, or to claim that Liberals Are the Real Racists™/Real Sexists (patent pending). The "alt-right," on the other hand, are out-and-proud racists and sexists who have evolved out of that crouch into a kind of joyful, nihilist, free-association of slurs, Nazi iconography, and coordinated harassment. Whee! So much more fun.
