It is important to note that in our Nation, composed of persons from many Nations, the far left and the far right, are like two peas in the same pod. Both are Godless, as they deny the inherent intrinsic value of the human person from the moment of conception as a beloved son, daughter, brother, sister, husband, wife, father, mother. The far left desires that their elitist and inhumane desires be brought to fruition through Government coercion and inhumane laws that objectify the human person and deny the inherent Dignity of a beloved son or daughter, while the far right wants freedom from any form of Government coercion that would interfere with the fruition of their elitist and inhumane desires.

The alt-right is collectivist, identitarian, anti-expansive foreign policy, anti-free markets and largely sympathetic to the welfare state.

Alt-what?

Not even saying I disagree with them on all those issues, but it seems to me that the alt-right is a renegade wing of the extreme cultural left. A rose by any other name...
