Steve Sailer: Trump is running an alt-center, not an alt-right, campaign
Steve Sailer writes:
There’s been a lot of talk about Trump as the so-called “alt-right” candidate, but he’s actually been running an “alt-center” campaign, staking out positions that are controversial because they dissent in a commonsensical fashion from the increasingly bizarre mainstream globalist ideology.
One of the striking side effects of the Trump phenomenon is how he encourages more respectable sorts to attempt to articulate their establishment principles, which, when spelled out, turn out to be terrifying in their implications.
There are genuine concerns about a President Trump’s garrulousness disrupting sleeping-dog foreign policies by stating out loud something that’s usually best kept diplomatically hushed up.
