The "alt-right" never think about the children nor have they done anything with children as an excuse. That was the rallying cry of the "Compassionate Conservatives" and the televangelists who banned video games and rap music in the 90's and also why you have to click "yes I'm 18" on many websites including lemmy. "Think of the children" is just what authoritarians use as an excuse to push their agenda whether that is ensuring the State has a monopoly on violence, or trying to ban things they don't like.

What the fuck are you talking about? They've definitely been using children as an excuse as they attack libraries. Pay attention.

That seems like normal conservative stuff to me. No need to call it the "alt-right" which in itself is a normalizing term that provides cover for the conservatives culture warriors that have existed forever.

This is the alt right, the modern Conservative Party has been folded into it. There's no cover, they're fascists or they support them.

Alt-right is a term coined by a horrible presidential candidate as she attempted to draw a false distinction between a "good conservative" and a "bad conservative." But the distinction is without a difference.
