Alt-right leader expelled from Conservative Meeting after organizer denounces It As a ‘left-wing fascist group’

Alt-right leader expelled from CPAC after organizer denounces ‘left-wing fascist group’ – The Washington Post

“There is a sinister organization that is trying to worm its way into our ranks,” said Dan Schneider, the executive director of the American Conservative Union, which runs CPAC. “We must not be deceived by [a] hateful, left-wing fascist group.”

Over a few confusing minutes, Schneider argued that the alt-right, a term coined then popularized by the National Policy Institute’s Richard Spencer, was philosophically left-wing because it departed from his definition of conservatism, in which “the individual” is sovereign.

“They hate the Constitution. They hate free markets. They hate pluralism,” Schneider said. “Fascists tend to want big government control.””
