TOP DEFINITIONAlt-Reich[T]he Alt-Right's current message and tone very much resembles Hitler's infamous 3rd Reich, and thus in slang terms could be called the "Alt-Reich".https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Alt-ReichLOL!
Outspoken internet troll Brontoraptor is "desperate" to learn about Adolf Hitler and World War Two after being accused of making a Nazi salute, says his social media manager.The boring Nazi troll, 48, was charged by the Football Association (FA) for making an offensive gesture.However, the case was not proven after Brontoraptor told an FA panel he did not know what a Nazi salute was.His manager says a lack of knowledge about the period could be "rife" on the internet.The FA panel found Brontoraptor showed a "lamentable degree of ignorance" about Adolf Hitler, fascism and the Nazi regime."He is actually very desperate now to learn as much as he can," his manager said.https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport

The new paper proves that the technique is successful in cutting down the time it takes to multiply numbers, with billion-digit numbers theoretically multipled in under 30 seconds using the Schönhage-Strassen algorithm.“Our paper gives the first known example of an algorithm that achieves this,” Harvey said. “People have been hunting for such an algorithm for almost 50 years. It was not a forgone conclusion that someone would eventually be successful.”Of the revelation, mathematician and computer scientist Fredrik Johansson from INRIA Bordeaux and Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux told New Scientist: "If the result is correct, it's a major achievement in computational complexity theory. The new ideas in this work are likely to inspire further research and could lead to practical improvements down the road."https://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/maths-multiplication-multiply-algorithm-large-numbers-new-method-a8875236.html
This is the practice popularised by the American alt-Reich of throwing lots of sugar on the failed German/Italian policies of the early 20th century, wrapping them up in modern packaging, and then trying to resell them to you at a discount.
An analysis by USA Today published in June 2016 found that over the previous three decades, United States president Donald Trump and his businesses have been involved in 3,500 legal cases in U.S. federal courts and state court, an unprecedented number for a U.S. presidential candidate. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legal_affairs_of_Donald_Trump
The problem with spamming the board with a ceaseless wave of shitposts which all share the common denominator of being vicious attacks against the left, is that criticism of the left then ceases to have any credibility or value. If and when the Democrats do something wrong (and I have no doubt that they get plenty of stuff wrong) it goes entirely unnoticed because finding out about it requires trawling through thirty different debates to find the one which is at least based on truth.There is a serious problem I have noticed over on the wingnut right, which is that its purveyors place far more weight on quantity than on quality. Their arguments are almost always so stupid and weak that they are left with little choice but to spam dozens of threads and hope the volume sways people to their side.
"In the years 1913 and 1914 I expressed my opinion for the first time in various circles, some of which are now members of the National Socialist Movement, that the problem of how the future of the German nation can be secured is the problem of how Marxism can be exterminated." (Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, p203)."Hitler advocated for "the destruction of Marxism in all its shapes and forms."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_views_of_Adolf_Hitler#Anti-communism
Everything else the author does in his article, however, is part of a cynical ploy to rewrite history by cherry-picking isolated facts and fitting them into a false context. The author claims that his thesis, that the Nazis were actually Leftists, is debatable, but compelling. It is actually neither. No actual historian or political scientist has gone on the record to claim that Nazis were Leftists. Accordingly, there is no citation given of any such person in the article because they don’t exist. This means that the author’s thesis is not actually debatable. It is settled history. I am not personally an academic specialist in the Nazi party, but I am an amateur historian with two history degrees who has read and thought much about World War Two over the course of my life. A very quick bit of research has led me to conclude with a high degree of certainty that there is basically universal consensus by scholars that the Nazis occupied territory on the far-right of the political spectrum. The few skeptics to the “far-right-wing Nazi consensus” seem to place more emphasis on the sui generis nature of the Nazi political beast by charaterizing it as neither right nor left, but a unique populist syncretic movement. Even such a rare opinion does not go so far as to characterize the Nazis as unequivocal members of “the Left”. That is because it is by definition an absurd and offensive statement. That is like saying that Nazis were secretly communists because of a short-lived and cynical peace treaty with Josef Stalin (Actually, the author does make that ridiculous point in the article). There is no new history to be written on the main, big picture history of World War Two and the Nazi party. There is no hitherto secret knowledge or conspiracy that the author has just revealed despite decades of settled history determining what everyone knew at the time and until now: the Nazis were a far-right party—as far right as a party could conceivably be on the political spectrum. Everything else in the article is merely lies and propaganda (which are usually the same thing) to further his own right-wing views.https://www.wrath-bearingtree.com/2018/10/no-nazis-were-not-leftists-or-how-to-debunk-right-wing-propaganda/
The false language these fucking idiots use to sell their ideology really gets on my nerves.Tell me, if people are free under capitalism then why do they all do the same fucking things?Why do they all go to work? Why do they take out mortgages? Why do they take out car loans? Why do they use credit/debit cards? Why do they watch the same TV programs, eat the same food and dress the same way? Why do they have the same opinions on political issues? Why do they go to church? Why do they vote in elections which offer them two versions of the same thing? Why do they get tearful when they hear the American national anthem? Why do they shop in the same places?It's funny really. If we are to believe capitalists, the freer you are, the more you behave like you are being controlled.
Writing for ChinaFile after Trump won the 2016 U.S. election, James Palmer feared an increase in racism "would give a brutal new credibility to the old Soviet whataboutism whenever they were challenged on the gulag: 'But in America, you lynch Negroes'."Writing in December 2016 for the liberal Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Israeli journalist Chemi Shalev made a similar comparison: "Trump told the New York Times this week that America is in such a mess in terms of civil liberties that it cannot lecture foreign countries anymore, which is an echo of old Soviet propaganda that responded to American reprimands with the retort 'And you are lynching Negroes'."Shalev followed up on this analysis in a subsequent article, writing: "Trump conducts pro-Russian propaganda along the same lines as the old retort 'And You Hang Blacks' with which the Soviets tried to deflect U.S. criticism of their human rights abuses. He isn't troubled by Putin's political opponents being murdered, because 'people get killed here too'."https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_you_are_lynching_Negroes#Donald_Trump
