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. 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.

Alt-righters using the alt-center label[edit]

  • Noah Carl: far-right[2] pseudoscientist who published a bunch of Islamophobic papers at OpenPsych. Denies being right-wing.Do You Believe That?
  • Bo Winegard: HBD crank[3] who writes for Quillette, has said "I am definitely a member of the alt-center".[4]
  • Giovanni Dannato: alt-right blogger who writes blog posts about "alt-center neo-tribalism", basically rebranded white nationalism.[7]
  • Ryan Faulk, race realist and white nationalist; has named his website "Alternative Hypothesis" claiming he is neither alt-right, nor alt-left.[13] 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.
