Buzzwords

Alt-center or alt-centre is a misleading term sometimes used by HBD/race realist individuals in the alt-right community who try to present themselves as political centrists and moderates because they realise if they openly admitted having a right-wing to far-right bias, this doesn't work too well with their bullshit claims of being "objective" scientists. In other words, it's a form of crypto-politics. The concept of alt-center is used by the alt-right as an attempt to push the Overton windowWikipedia's W.svg closer to alt-right ideology. Most self-described alt-centrists are associated with the OpenPsych pseudojournals that publish racialism pseudoscience, as well as Quillette founded by alt-right anti-feminist activist Claire Lehmann.

Right-wingers and alt-righters using the alt-center label[edit]

  • Noah Carl: far-right[4] pseudoscientist who published a bunch of Islamophobic papers at OpenPsych. Denies being right-wing.Do You Believe That? In April 2019, Carl was was stripped of his fellowship at a Cambridge University and sacked from his job, over his publications in OpenPsych and links to far-right extremists.[5][6]
  • Bo Winegard: HBD crank[7] who writes for Quillette, has said "I am definitely a member of the alt-center".[8]
  • Giovanni Dannato: alt-right blogger who writes blog posts about "alt-center neo-tribalism", basically rebranded white nationalism.[11]
  • Ryan Faulk, race realist and white nationalist; has named his website "Alternative Hypothesis" claiming he is neither alt-right, nor alt-left.[17] However, he then rants about how immigrants of other races supposedly tend to be left-wing - which is not even always true - and kind of shows that he is really alt-right.
