But Orcs and Trolls spoke as they would, without love of words or things; and their language was actually more degraded and filthy than I have shown it. I do not suppose that any will wish for a closer rendering, though models are easy to find. Much the same sort of talk can still be heard among the orc-minded; dreary and repetitive with hatred and contempt, too long removed from good to retain even verbal vigor, save in the ears of those to whom only the squalid sounds strong.
—J. R. R. Tolkien, Appendix F of The Return of the King[1]

The alt-right uses a lexicon filled with memes, stolen left-wing terminology with altered meanings, and in-jokes. Whether this is because the alt-right is just a bunch of cringey manchildren or because they hope to hide their racist intentions, the world may never know. [note 1]



The OK Hand Sign, emojified as 👌🏻, is a dogwhistle that alt-righters use to show that they are alt-right without explicitly stating it, echoing both Trump's and Pepe's usage of the sign.[2] The alt-right use originated as bait for a /pol/ "prank" or trolling attempt,[3] but as the media failed to fall into the trap, its usage rapidly shed whatever irony it had. As of January 2018, Snopes has listed the symbol as ambiguous as to whether it is an alt-right symbol or alt-right trolling.[4] The sign is also used relatively innocuously in the "Circle Game".[5] What makes it so devious is that it can be very difficult to know if someone is using it as a dogwhistle or as a harmless hand sign.


Milk, emojified as 🥛, is another dogwhistle similar to 👌🏻. This dogwhistle originated from a 4chan thread[6] centering around a Nature article about a genetic mutation in Europe that caused lactase production and eliminated lactose intolerance in adulthood.[7] Ironically, a similar mutation arose independently in Africa.[8] Whether as a form of dimwittery or trolling, some in the alt-right have also in engaged in milk chugging.[9]


🐸 is the emoji form of Pepe.


The doubled ⚡, to the alt-right, does not represent two ordinary lightning bolts, but the insignia of the Nazi SS, the SS bolts. To obfuscate its true meaning to those not in the know, the two emoji may be placed on either side of a name, word or phrase.[10][11]


The 🤡🌎 emoji form of Clown World.


The pine or spruce tree emoji 🌲 expresses a combination of "Nordic" roots and alt-right sympathies, especially as connects to ecofascism.[12][13][14] Note that this may also be used by people in the Pacific Northwest, say, or who are interested in conifers, so context is important.


The bear (🐻) emoji, especially alongside the hashtag #unBEARables, denotes fans of Owen Benjamin.[15][16][17] (The bear may also be used more innocuously by people from California, whose flag features a bear. Again, context is important.)


See the main articles on this topic: Triple parentheses and International Jewish Conspiracy

Triple parentheses (also (((echoes))) or coincidence markers) are used to highlight those of Jewish or partial-Jewish ancestry, as such: (((NAME))). Users of triple parentheses allege that triple parentheses highlight how much control Jews have over the world, which bears close resemblance to the "International Jewish Conspiracy" conspiracy theory, sometimes indicated with "(((they)))".[18] (Or: It's a convenient way to poison the well by smearing someone or something as Jewish, in a racist appeal to identity.) The Nazi blog The Right Stuff calls these cases "coincidences" in which "Jewish surnames echo throughout history".[19] The hashtag #Cohencidence (which trended on Twitter for a while) is linked to the idea of coincidence marking, as a portmanteau of the word "coincidence" with the common Jewish surname "Cohen".[20]

Sometimes used in an inverted manner )))thus((( to signal that one is an antisemite.[21]

Intentionally using triple parenthesis around one's own name (e.g. on Twitter) is sometimes seen as an act of defiance against the alt-right.[22]


13%, 13 50, or 13 52 is a racist dogwhistle for African American people, in reference to the supposed statistic that "despite being up only 13% of the population, black Americans commit approximately 50% of homicides in the USA" or "despite making up only 13% of the population, blacks make up 52% of all homicides in the United States".[23][24][25] Never mind that these figures are decades old,[26] and that based on numbers arrested, black Americans have gone from committing 49.3% of all violent crimes in 1995[27] to 37.5% in 2016-2017.[28][29] Since these statistics are based on arrests, not convictions, they are subject to bias from racial profiling. One study estimated that as much as 16-33% of arrests of racial minorities could be due to racial profiling in areas that have not had police reform.[30]



Also known as Amerimutt, La Creatura, Le 56% Face, or Der Untermensch; it refers to the claim that the USA is 56% white.[31]


1290 was the year that Jews were expelled from England by King Edward I.Wikipedia's W.svg Jews were not allowed to return until Oliver Cromwell readmitted Jews to Britain in 1656.[32]


1488[33] or 14/88[34] is a reference to two racist concepts, the Fourteen Words created by white supremacist David Lane ("We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children," or more rarely "Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the earth") and 88 (Which originally referenced Lane's "88 PreceptsWikipedia's W.svg" but now represents two H's (8th letter of the alphabet) to make "HH", for Heil Hitler.Wikipedia's W.svg) It is claimed that the 14 words were inspired by a specific sentence from Volume 1, Chapter 8 of Mein Kampf which is exactly 88 words in length, though neither Lane nor his publisher Fourteen Word Press ever claimed this and it is probably a coincidence.

In short: If their username has "14" and/or "88" in it and they whine about white fertility rates, get out the Nazi-beating-stick.

AryanPrincess1488 finds your accusation of racism deeply offensive.


See cuck.

Ally points[edit]

The reward gained for virtue signalling. Ally points place the recipient slightly higher in the eyes of the leftist overlords. They are revoked at the first sign of disloyalty. "Brownie Points" is a similar concept, albeit with the added bonus of infantilizing the other side by implicitly comparing them to children expecting sweets as a reward for good behaviour. Used sarcastically by the left as well, to call out performative wokeness.


See the main article on this topic: Alt-center

A misleading term used by some racialists in an attempt to portray themselves as moderates.


Short for "Alternative Christianity", Alt-Christianity is used by alt-righters who openly believe in the religion of "Christianity". Many alt-righters that believe in Christianity share similar views to the hateful Christian Right, with a twist of white supremacy into the mix. Prominent Alt-Christians include the Ku Klux Klan, Theodore Beale, Matthew Heimbach, InfoWars, John Earnest, Pastor Steven Anderson and Christian Fascists.[35] Not to be confused with cultural Christianity, which despite its name is a secular orientation (though one with quite a few alt-right adherents in its own right). The term Christofascism is also different, and is generally associated with theocratic Christians.


The alt-left (also CTRL-left) is a term that The New York Times claims was made up by the right to create a sense of false equivalence between the far right and "anything vaguely left-seeming that they didn't like."[36] The term was originally coined by Robert A. Lindsay to describe some on the far-left moving away from identity and social justice politics and moving towards focusing more on economic populism.[37] — the opposite of those whom the alt-right (theoretically) use the term against, who would presumably be those who double down on identity politics and the like. It also originated as a term used by centrist and moderate Democrats against the far-left within the party (as well as left-aligned independents) who support "progressive ideals" (like pushing Seth Rich murder conspiracies, praising Bashar al-Assad, claiming chemical attacks were false flags, and still denying that Russia meddled in the US election).[38][39][40][41][42] The term has even been used by Hannity to describe mainstream media.[43][44][45]

The term "regressive left" is often used as a substitute for "alt-left" and a shitty insult for the far-right to use against the far-left ("see? the Left has crazies, too!"). However, the original meaning of the term "regressive left" was as a political epithet against liberals/leftists who allegedly fail to criticize reactionary or ideologically authoritarian elements within radical Islam — or Islam in general, depending on who you talk to — in the name of tolerance, multiculturalism, diversity and/or other forms of alleged Cultural Marxism. The term has also seen some use among leftists who are (seen as being) too friendly towards authoritarian regimes as long as they profess to be "anti-imperialist".


Alt-lite (or alt-light) is a loosely-defined term used refer to at least one of the following:

  • a subfaction / breakaway faction of the alt-right that wants to steer the alt-right towards more (read: relatively) moderate Trump-esque grounds, hoping to use this "moderacy" to "re-take" Europe with candidates such as Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders. Steve Bannon is an example of the alt-lite. Bannon, who is a racist but publicly disavows ethnonationalism, now regards it as a mistake to have ever identified his publication Breitbart, and by implication himself, as part of the alt-right, and he is not the only alt-lite individual to feel this way about the alt-right. It's possible that Bannon got played in this regard by his erstwhile "journalist" Milo, who posed as a part-Jewish "controversial gay conservative", but was secretly an antisemitic alt-right member hobnobbing with alt-right individuals like Richard Spencer and trying to use Breitbart to build a recruitment pipeline from more conventional right-wingers into the alt-right. (In 2018, Milo was asked repeatedly but was unable to provide any hard evidence of his claimed Jewish ancestry.[46])
  • right-wing individuals whose political positions are dangerously close to the alt-right but generally stopping short of explicit white nationalism.

The alt-lite thus hopes to abandon (overt) anti-semitism and racism, which upsets the more militantly white-nationalist alt-right subfaction. "Alt-lite" is both a pejorative (similar to cuck) slung at alt-rightists who aren't racist enough, and a self-description of the Proud Boys subgroup.[47]

The alt-lite is willing to embrace most other forms of bigotry: according to the Anti-Defamation League, the alt-lite "embraces misogyny and xenophobia, and abhors “political correctness” and the left."[48]


See the main article on this topic: Alt-right

The alt-right (also new right or dissident right) is the dominant group within the regressive right. The term is supposed to distinguish them from neocons, who are held to have betrayed conservatism by being globalists. The alt-right's fundamental beliefs are:

The alt-right bundles these concepts into the feel-good buzzword of Western civilization, which is an Unquestionable Good Thing.

Many alt-righters are (literal) Nazis or fascists. This stems from the belief that the actor behind the above attacks is "The Jews". Those alt-righters who are not Nazis generally hold that Cultural Marxists and/or "globalists" are the ones pulling the strings (and these terms can serve as antisemitic dogwhistles for Jews). This conspiratorial thinking underlies much of alt-right rhetoric about the liberal media and an ongoing culture war.

The alt-right does not endorse any particular economic views, though they typically oppose economic globalization on the basis of "foreigners taking our jobs and controlling our companies" arguments against outsourcing and foreign investment respectively. As such, alt-right is essentially synonymous with extreme social conservativism. Given that the alt-right and the Religious Right both whine about the same things, this isn't hard to believe.


Short for "Alternative South", Alt-South is a term coined by Alabama native, anti-Semitic racist, and Occidental Dissent writer Brad Griffin to refer to a sub-section of the alt-right that combines racial Neo-Confederate/Southern Nationalism with the tactics and ideology of the alt-right as an alternative to mainstream conservatism in the South.[49] The Identitarian organization Identity Dixie (aka "Rebel Yell") is an Alt-South group. Appropriately, just like the alt-right the "Alt-South" has a glossary of its own.[50]


Alt-tech refers to "free speech" internet websites which are alternatives to mainstream internet outlets.

More often than not, these "alt-tech" websites are littered with typical alt-right content since many of them are "free speech websites", with Rightpedia and GoyFundMe being exceptions. Even though they don't explicitly identify as alt-right, they sure have plenty of users who endorse and/or push alt-right views. Unsurprisingly, so-called "alt-tech" websites are often vastly inferior to their mainstream counterparts.[51]

Some "alt-tech" websites (and their mainstream counterparts):

Le American Bear[edit]

The original Le American Bear

Le American Bear refers to a series of do-it-yourself Paint cartoons and singular panels conceived on YlilautaWikipedia's W.svg in ca. 2012-2013, as well as to the titular character; it was originally not racist. In the alt-right recharacterization, a morbidly obese and dimwitted American caricature consistently falls for tricks and traps set for him by Le Happy Merchant, yet never sees anything wrong with the situation and keeps calling him "my greatest ally".[57][58]


Amerikaner (portmanteau of 'Afrikaner' and 'American') is a term used in some alt-right circles to refer to all white Americans (no matter their ethnic backgrounds) as having the same ancestry.[59] It also refers to the alleged white genocide of Afrikaners at the hands of black South Africans in post-Apartheid South Africa, which is a major concern of the alt-right. The implication is of course that a similar "fate" is awaiting white Americans if they do not act.


See Attack helicopter.

Anti-racist is code word for anti-white[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Anti-racist is code word for anti-white

Anti-racist is code word for anti-white is a reference to a "mantra" that alleges that mass immigration is causing white genocide. The mantra begins:


It's about as stupid as it sounds. Similar phrases include "diversity is anti-white", "multiculturalism is anti-white", etc. The subphrase "anti-white" has become widely-used among the alt-right.


The original Apu Apustaja

Apu is a Pepe-like frog named Apu Apustaja ("help helper"), originally from the Finnish image site Ylilauta,Wikipedia's W.svg[60] is part of the the Pepe/Groyper amphibian NPC collective repetoire.[61] It's not clear that racial stereotyping in the portrayal of The Simpsons character Apu, as noted in Hari Kondabolu's 2017 film The Problem with Apu, is connected.

Attack helicopter[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Non-binary gender

The phrase "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" or ammosexual, and other variants of "I sexually identify as [something transparently ridiculous]" are used to mock people who claim non-binary gender or who believe that non-binary genders can exist. The phrase is often accompanied by a long shitpost about the rights the shitposter allegedly demands due to being [something transparently ridiculous]. Since the alt-right is a movement that partly grew out from chan culture, expect allusions to furries or otherkin. "Apache attack helicopter" is perhaps the most common phrase, as it features in the popular 2014 copypasta that coined the joke:[62]

I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I'm fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114[sic] Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me "Apache" and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can't accept me you're a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.

Autistic dark web[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Autistic dark web

The autistic dark web (ADW) is a small radical group comprised of alt-right internet trolls who pretend to have autism and who troll and bully autistic people while promoting far-right ideology. The ADW opposes the Autism rights movement, identity politics, feminism, egalitarianism and social justice. Straw man arguments are common, such as claiming that neurodiversity advocates think autism is "fashionable" or that they think autism isn't a disability (which it obviously is). Autistic people who don't hate themselves, or who dare to appreciate any of the positive aspects of being autistic, are unacceptable to members of the ADW. The ADW often harass people with autism and promotes the Clown World meme, anti-vaccination conspiracy theories and claim that Jews invented autism (even thought it was Austrian Nazi Hans Asperger who first studied the disorder).

Autistic screeching[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Ableism

The phrase "autistic screeching" is used to mock people being offended by the alt-right and/or to ridicule autistic people.[63]


Someone or something that is based is considered to be authoritative, unbiased, and redpilled.[64] The alt-right generally describes anyone who promotes racism as "based".[65][66] The term gained mainstream usage through Gamergate's descriptions of pro-Gamergate YouTubers as "based", although it was originally used by American rapper Lil B the "BasedGod" in a different context; he defined the term that denotes a lifestyle of positivity and tolerance,[67] the complete opposite to the alt-right's appropriation of the phrase. Alt-righters often pair the term with the adjective cucked: something or someone that doesn't accept alt-right views.


Beta is interchangeable with cuck and is often used along with it.

The term refers to "beta male", which in turn means "not alpha male" — alpha male being a concept from the study of lions and other like animals, meaning the leader of the pack, who tends to enjoy greater sexual success. Like the word "cuck", it's probably intended to have humiliating sexual overtones when used to label men in particular. However, since the most obvious translations of "alpha male" into a human social context would be government leaders and CEOs, calling someone a "beta male" arguably just means "you're a male human being who isn't an extremely high-profile leader… at least not at the present time." Perhaps not quite what they had intended. The terms alpha, beta and cuck were adopted from the men's rights movement.

Black don't crack[edit]

The phrase black don't crack originates as a statement related to melanin, Sun exposure and the aging process.[68] the alt-right prefers to use it as a reference to the black brute stereotype, using "crack" as in "give up".

Blood and soil[edit]

"Blut und Boden" in the Reichsnährstand logo

Blood and soil is one of the rallying cries of the alt-right. It is a translation from the German Blut und Boden,Wikipedia's W.svg a phrase which originated in German 19th-century agrarian nationalist-romanticism, and which was adopted by the Nazi Ministry of Food and Agriculture (Reichsnährstand). Under the original Nazis, it indicated then that the original descendants (Blut) belonged to the land (Boden), and was used as an ideology to support the Nazi eugenics program and the Lebensraum ideology. Vanguard America, a white supremacist group, also uses the motto, "blood and soil". As a symbol, they use either an eagle with a Roman fasces (modern symbol of fascism), or a crossed pair of fasces.[69]

Needless to say, the application of this concept by neo-Nazis to the US is absurd.[70] White people are not indigenous to the US. Moreover, white people do not share a unified "blood" as Hitler envisioned it; given that they don't share a "natural" language or "natural" culture — Italians and Swedes do not speak Italian or Swedish in the US, and only "pure" Anglo-Saxons can claim English language and culture.[note 2]

Boogaloo or big igloo[edit]

Boogaloo is a code word for race war.[73] The term boogaloo is most likely derived from the multiplayer shooter game Double Action: Boogaloo.[74] Big igloo is a derivative synonym that refers to boogaloo[75] and probably to the "big tent" idea of inclusiveness (but for white people since igloos are white).


Boomer is used as a pejorative against the baby boomer generation for their perceived left-wing radicalization during the 1960s and continued anti-fascism.[76][77]


The term brownshirt is sometimes used to refer to white members of the left, with the implication being that they, like Hitler's paramilitary Brownshirts (SturmabteilungWikipedia's W.svg), will be disposed of by the rest of the left when they are no longer "useful".


The term bugman is used to refer to left-wingers who are seen as being hollow, technology- and trend-obsessed consumerists whose opinions and tastes are completely determined by the mainstream consensus of other bugmen. It is similar in meaning to the incelese term bluepill. They have no individuality, are sometimes said to be "soulless" and have a thousand-yard "insectoid" stare that gives away that they are "dead inside". Their lives are empty and without meaning or purpose except to be consumers and serve corporations. It is a clear attempt at dehumanization and is similar to the NPC meme.

Civic nationalism[edit]

Civic nationalism is a philosophy that defines nationhood in terms of civic institutions and creeds rather than race or ethnicity. It is condemned in alt-right circles as the province of cucks and consequently flung as a pejorative.[78] Andrew Anglin, owner of The Daily Stormer, was criticized by the alt-right for this when he put an image of George Washington on The Daily Stormer's banner.[78]

Clown World[edit]

Clown Pepe/Honk Honk/Honkler

Clown World (a.k.a., Clown Pepe, Honk Honk or Honkler) is a meme created by 4chan trolls to claim that clowns are racist.[79] Clown World is a xenophobic and neo-Nazi dog whistle based on the idea that it's nihilistically humorous that the supposed destruction of Western civilization (through the normalization of autistic people, LGBTQ+ people, immigration, interracial sex and anything else that the alt-right hates) is allowed without consequence. The emoji for Clown World is 🤡🌎.


Taking their coat means defeating someone in debate or banning them from an Internet forum. Putting on a coat is synonymous with taking the red pill. The terminology began when Trump suggested that a protester be thrown from his rally, without their coat into the cold.[80]

Conservatism, Inc.[edit]

Conservatism, Inc. is a derogatory term for conservatism as practiced by those deemed insufficiently pro-white, also known as cuckservatives.


A supposedly clever but completely transparent term used to deny that one is an antisemite, while simultaneously asserting it.[81]


A cuck is someone who doesn't hold alt-right views. It is used as a pejorative with absurd frequency. The term "cuck" originates from "cuckold",Wikipedia's W.svg which describes a man married to an adulterous woman, in this context in the fetish sense: the implication is seemingly supposed to be that the recipient holds views they know are wrong but is too pathetic to do anything about it. The term was taken from the men's rights movement (see Manosphere glossary#Cuckold). Someone who is not cucked is instead based or red-pilled. There are also racist ideas attached to the term, in that allowing a non-white man to have sex with one's white wife is viewed as an unforgivable offense. So the term is applied to targets deemed to be race-traitors in any way.


A cuckservative is a conservative who doesn't hold alt-right views on race and immigration, and therefore is cucked instead of based.[82]

Cultural enrichment[edit]

Cultural enrichment is a sarcastic term used by the alt-right to mock those who think immigration from countries that aren't majority white or East Asian is not an inherently bad thing. The term is used as a euphemism for a terrorist attack or problems the alt-right believes are associated with large minority or immigrant populations.[83] For example, after the June 2017 London Bridge attack,Wikipedia's W.svg a likely alt-right account tweeted:

Another day of cultural enrichment in Londonistan. Weaponised vehicles, a few dead people. Sadiq Khan’s Londonistan #londonattack.[84][85]

Cultural Marxism[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Cultural Marxism

Cultural Marxism (also Cultural Bolshevism or Kulturbolschewismus, in the original German and frequently what the alt-right is talking about when they say "The System") is a conspiracy theory in which the Frankfurt School (a body of Marxist writings) and critical theory (critiques of society, with some origins in Marx's work) are the products of leftists' concerted efforts to (successfully) sneak communism into academia and culture at large. In turn, the conspiracy goes, modern gender/race/sexuality/etc. movements are ultimately grounded in these communist writings – and so they are communist themselves. The theory is absurd. The Frankfurt School was obscure and had a negligible impact on broader society. The methods used by social justice advocates – analyzing society through lenses of class/gender/race/etc. – long precede the Frankfurt school.

Most often the examples of "Cultural Marxism" will be from the so-called "Science Wars",Wikipedia's W.svg a period when a bunch of postmodernist critics who really should have known better tried using critical theory on demonstrably accurate scientific principles as if they were social constructs, leading to some truly bizarre claims such as Sandra Harding describing Newton's Principia Mathematica as a "rape manual"[86] or Luce Irigaray's claim that E=mc2 is a "sexed equation" that "privileges the speed of light over other speeds that are vitally necessary to us."[87] While this is a thing that definitely existed and still does to an extent, it is not and never was the all-encompassing conspiracy it is painted as, and many of those involved in producing the examples cited have stated they regret their prior work and acknowledge all they did was gave ammunition to reactionaries.

In short: social liberalism is actually communism in disguise, and the leftists know it. (Nothing new here!) Calling something Cultural Marxism is an easy way to dismiss it without actually engaging with its arguments.

People who whine about Cultural Marxism often attribute it to a supposed International Jewish Conspiracy.

Day of the Rope[edit]

The Day of the Rope is an alt-right fantasy taking place in the future, when "justice" will be served to those who took part in the attempted genocide of the white race. Typically, the fantasy involves a public hanging of everyone the alt-right perceives as enemies. The term was taken from the book The Turner Diaries.[88]

Deep state[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Deep state

The deep state is a conspiracy theory that there is a body of people who are secretly manipulating or controlling US government policy, and the President must serve their interests or else risk assassination.[89] It serves as a convenient excuse for the alt-right as to why Trump can't get anything done (e.g. It doesn't matter, the deep state are stopping him at all costs and he needs to make sure they don't take him out!).[90] Like many alt-right expressions, the term can be used as covert anti-Semitism.[91]


See the main article on this topic: Degenerate

Degenerate, or degeneracy, is a common descriptive term used by the alt-right for anything they consider unacceptable in their ideal society.[92] The use of the word "degenerate" is an explicit reference to terms used in Nazi Germany such as degenerate art and degenerate music.Wikipedia's W.svg

Deus vult[edit]

Deus vult is Latin for "God wills it". Deus Vult was the battle cry of the crusaders. Use of the term implies that another crusade is necessary. SaracenWikipedia's W.svg is an associated term and was used by medieval Europeans to refer to Muslims, particularly Muslims in former Roman provinces. It's a pretty good sign you've stumbled upon an internet tough guy[93] or an alt-liter attempting to use it in a memetic fashion to hide its racist intentions. This term may be a bit less trustworthy than others, and it may just be that you've met with an internet historian making a joke. Or both.


Contraction of "Deseret Nationalist": a Mormon alt-righter.[95][96]


See the main article on this topic: Black brute

Dindu is a contraction of "didn't do"; dindu nuffin is a contraction of "didn't do nothing". Both may be accompanied with he wuz a good boy[97][98] or notes of requesting gibs ("gives," as in handouts or compensation). The terms are used as a noun to refer to black people and imply that they are inherently violent and stupid.[99][100][101][102][103] The terms imply that black people often use these phrases to escape punishment.

Discussion club[edit]

A "discussion club" is a codeword for an alt-right meeting. The term abuses the alt-right's use of "free speech" as an all-purpose defense of their activities.[104]


Diversity (often mangled to dieversity) is a hated word in the alt-right (unless it's being used sarcastically, a la cultural enrichment).


Dysgenics is the study of factors producing the perpetuation of disadvantageous genes and traits in a population's offspring. It is the antonym of eugenics. In alt-right-speak, dysgenics means "too few pure white babies."[105][106]


Synonym for alt-right. Often used to imply they're not actually white supremacists and are just doing all that stuff to shock the normies.[104] The tendency for this claim to be true is inversely proportional to the mental age of the speaker.[citation NOT needed] This word is also used in the wider Internet culture as an insult to someone who attempts to be overly shocking or dark in an attempt to seem cool. These people may also be referred to as "Edgelords," so as with Deus Vult, pay attention to context.


See the main article on this topic: Fashtag

Similar to the OK sign (👌🏻), the fashtag (#) was an attempted trolling attempt by the alt-right originating in 4chan. This hoax attempt failed miserably.


Fashwave is a fascist variant of the non-racist genre of electronic music called Vaporwave. While its songs don't necessarily have lyrics they make up for it with stock footage, catchy tunes, and cover art demonstrating Nazism. It's frequently used by alt-right outlets such as The Daily Stormer under their "Fashwave Fridays" block.

Fashy haircut[edit]

Hitler Jugend boy band member Richard Spencer discusses his hair care products

A fashy haircut (short for fascist haircut[107]), known in polite company as an undercut,Wikipedia's W.svg has short hair on the sides/back and long on top. It has been used by various people for various reasons (too poor to afford a haircut, gang identification, fashion statement). In the case of the alt-right, however, it has a direct link to the Nazi German armed forces (Wehrmacht) and Hitler Youth (Hitlerjugend), where it was common. In such cases it is sometimes referred to as a jugend or a Hitler Youth haircut.[108][109] One white nationalist, Nathan Benjamin Damigo, both sported the haircut and tweeted under that name before he was banned on Twitter in 2017.[107][110]

Fellow white people[edit]

"Fellow white people" is a phrase that is used against Jewish people to imply that Jews are white when it suits them but not when they wish to be seen as a persecuted minority, or to tear down America from the inside, or to promote multiculturalism, immigration, etc.[111] Also seen in variants such as "As a white person…"

Forced diversity[edit]

Forced diversity is a dog whistle used by the alt-right, which claims that the social justice warriors are ruining mainstream media with identity politics and with fewer neurotypical, white, heterosexual men in films, video games, TV shows and comic books.

Free helicopter rides[edit]

A meme where members of the alt-right "joke"[112][113] about giving leftists "free helicopter rides" (read: executing their political opponents).[114] This is in reference to the extrajudicial executions (death flightsWikipedia's W.svg) during the Dirty War in Argentina and following the 1973 Chilean coup. Political opponents of Argentina's Admiral Luis María MendíaWikipedia's W.svg and Chile's Augusto Pinochet were flown over the ocean in an airplane or helicopter and pushed to their death.[115][116] This meme seemed to gain popularity early in Donald Trump's campaign, when he gave helicopter rides to children at the Iowa State Fair.[117] To Trump's credit, he did not murder them.

Free speech rally[edit]

A free speech rally is a neo-Nazi rally disguised with the thinnest of rhetorical veneers.


Fren is a backronymWikipedia's W.svg that stands for "Far Right Ethno-Nationalist",[118] it is defined as a person, especially a member of the alt-right. It is a dog whistle used by a subsection of the alt-right, commonly found on the r/FrenWorld subreddit on Reddit. The idea is to talk like a small child or a mentally challenged person, the pattern having emerged with the aforementioned Apu Apustaja meme.

Closely connected to the honkler/Clown World memes; the Honkler and other Pepes can be seen in many of their memes. After the CringeAnarchy subreddit was shut down when the moderators refused to delete posts calling for genocide, many users migrated to the r/FrenWorld,[119] which was itself shut down in June 2019.

Gender studies[edit]

"Gender studies" is used as a shorthand for any and all fields of academic study that the alt-right finds useless (read as: everything except racist pseudoscience). "Getting their gender studies degree" is spoken of as if it is some kind of rite of passage for the left. It is also a not-so-subtle dis of feminism.

Get them out![edit]

Get them out! was a phrase used by Donald Trump at some of his campaign rallies in 2016 to urge his supporters to evict protesters from the rallies. Trump was sued in 2017 for allegedly having incited violence at the rallies.[120] The phrase was also echoed by Trump in reference to undocumented immigrants, "We are going to get them out and get them out fast."[121]

Get woke, go broke[edit]

The phrase Get woke, go broke is a right-wing form of schadenfreude, specifically directed at media or cultural ventures that lose money and/or popularity when they become (if they weren't already) woke. This phrase is repeated in a mocking sense ad nauseam in online forums and social media circles frequented by the alt-right and neoreactionaries whenever a "woke" venture goes "broke". Interestingly, users of this phrase seem to stay quiet when woke ventures succeed.

This phrase can also mean that things that are "woke" have become morally and intellectually bankrupt, but the former usage is far more common.


See the main article on this topic: Globalization

Globalism is sometimes used as a synonym for globalization, but usually with overtones of xenophobia, anti-immigration, anti-Semitism (i.e., International Jewish conspiracy)[122] and general conspiracy theories.


"The Goyim Know" t-shirt
See the main article on this topic: Goy

Goy (Hebrew: גוי; plural: goyim) is the standard Hebrew biblical term for a "nation", but has also acquired the meaning of "someone who is not Jewish" (synonymous with gentile). It is not an inherently pejorative term, although it may sometimes be used that way by Jews.

In the context of its alt-right usage, the term is used in order to reinforce the idea of an International Jewish Conspiracy.[123] A common alt-right "joke" is to reply to assertions of shadowy Jewish puppet-masters by saying, Oy vey, the goyim know, shut it down![124] Those in the alt-right will sneeringly refer to a non-Jewish person who opposes anti-Semitism as a "good goy", the implication being that they are a cuck who is unknowingly serving the eeeeevil Jewish conspiracy.

The original Groyper[125]

Groyper is an obese toad (similar to Pepe) who likely originated on a 4chan board, although his origins are disputed.[126] Groyper would later gain popularity on July 28, 2017, when a YouTuber named Savickas uploaded a video titled "Groyper Mesmerizes you to sleep".[126] The original image of Groyper is a fat frog who crosses his hands together. Since then the character has served as an alternative to the popular Pepe the Frog. Unlike Pepe, Groyper is not the intellectual property of someone opposed to the alt-right. Users add Groyper hands to their Avis on Twitter to honor Groyper. The top terms associated with Groyper are Bazooo, Henlo, and references to being cozy. He is notable enough to have received media attention.[126]

Le Happy Merchant[edit]

Where have we seen this before?
See the main article on this topic: Le Happy Merchant

Le Happy Merchant is an anti-Jew meme used widely among anti-Semites and the alt-right. It depicts a stereotypical Jew with yarmulke, oversized nose, greedy grin, and "conspiring" hands. It is common to see the image edited onto left-wing political posters or to see liberal candidates depicted as Happy Merchants. In short: it's a meme-friendly way to Jew-bait.

The image itself comes from a cartoon by the pseudonymous "A. Wyatt Mann" (say it out loud), a pseudonym for either White Aryan Resistance (WAR) member Wyatt Kaldenberg (who denies having anything to do with it) or more likely director Nick Bougas (more or less a race-baiting hipster who was known for producing "anti-political-correctness" zines). It was one of a great many cartoons produced during the 1980s and 1990s by the same artist, many published by white supremacist Tom Metzger (founder and leader of WAR).[127]


According to the alt-right, "hatefacts" are "politically incorrect but true statements."[128] In essence, the term is used so that the alt-right can claim that those who deny their hateful claims are denying facts.[129] Such "facts" are supportive of any of racialism, anti-Semitism, Holocaust denial, ethno-nationalism, anti-diversity/multiculturalism/immigration, homophobia, transphobia, or Islamophobia views.[128] The alt-right use "hatefacts" to present a narrative about the white world being "under attack".[130]


See 1488.


Holocauster is another term for Jews, used to try to evade keyword filters while simultaneously trivializing the Holocaust.

See the main article on this topic: Identitarianism

Identitarianism is a synonym for Nazism that sounds less Nazi-like.

It's 2019 [Current year][edit]

"It's 2019" originated on /pol/ as a mockery of comedian and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver's supposed tendency to respond to regressive attitudes with "Come on, it's 2015!" It was possibly stolen from an article in The Onion titled, "Report: Stating Current Year Still Leading Argument For Social Reform".[131] It is used to characterize left-wing arguments as specious and only based on saying, "We should be past this by now." without saying why, with the usual form being "After all, it's [current year]!"

It's Okay to Be White[edit]

See the main article on this topic: It's Okay to Be White

A term invented by the equally alt-right/racist /pol/ of 4chan, It's Okay to Be White is a propaganda campaign posted on various college and university campuses to get support from potential alt-right students. The purpose of this slogan is to provoke outrage in the hopes of proving society's supposed anti-white agenda.


The alt-right really doesn't like Jews. We cannot imagine why. Many alt-righters subscribe to the International Jewish Conspiracy conspiracy theory. In particular, the following terms are frequently used in alt-right groups, some of which are used by Jewish people and appropriated by the alt-right:

The word "Jew" and related terms will also be shoehorned in wherever possible, particularly if there is some negative association (e.g. "I just got demonetized by Jewtube!"). Terms for Jews that are used by the alt-right to try to bypass keyword filters include: "J", "Joos" and "Juice".

Jew media[edit]

"Jew media" is "new media" that doesn't agree with the alt-right. See also legacy media and liberal media.[132]

Jewish question[edit]

The Jewish question (abbreviated JQ) was part of a long-running debate in Europe about the civil, legal, national and political status of Jews within Europe from the 18th through 20th centuries. It culminated in Nazi Germany with The Final Solution (German: Endlösung), resulting in the Holocaust. The alt-right has revived the term even though there are some Jews who consider themselves among the alt-right.[133]

Front cover of the Nazi tabloid Der StürmerWikipedia's W.svg from December 1938 with the headline, "Ist die Judenfrage gelöst?" (Is the Jewish Question Solved?). This is the tabloid that inspired the name of The Daily Stormer.

Jews will not replace us.[edit]

"Jews will not replace us." (often rephrased to the less-Nazi-esque You will not replace us) is an alt-right slogan based on the white genocide canard,[134] based on "The Great Replacement" philosophy of Renaud CamusWikipedia's W.svg (who has distanced himself from its use by white nationalists).[135]

You can hear the phrase in this deleted Baked Alaska video, starting at about 0:20:


The term "Kek" originates from World of Warcraft,Wikipedia's W.svg where if someone from the Horde side typed "lol" in /say, Alliance players would instead see "kek". This is a further reference by Blizzard to the Korean language kekeke (ㅋㅋㅋ) laugh commonly seen in Starcraft.Wikipedia's W.svg Used the same way by 4chan, later leading to the discovery of an Egyptian deity by the same name who happened to be a frog, thus linking this to the Pepe meme. The superlative is "topkek" or "top kek," which is a reference to a Turkish snack food.[136]


Kekistan is a fictional ethnicity that lets alt-righters use a Nazi flag as a "meme". Kekistan was popularized in part by Sargon of Akkad.

Expect to hear the Kekistani National Anthem in the background of some high-quality totally-not-racist videos:


Kosherist is another term for Jews. It is used to try to evade keyword triggers. It is not strictly an evasion, as it has been used in ads for Kosher products.[137]

The Last Stand[edit]

"The Last Stand" is a song by the Swedish metal band Sabaton,Wikipedia's W.svg the titular last stand being of 189 Swiss Guardsmen during the Sack of Rome in 1527Wikipedia's W.svg by unpaid landsknecht (mercenaries) in the service of Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. This last stand delayed the mutineers long enough for the Pope to escape to Castel Sant'Angelo.

What does the last stand have to do with the alt-right? Not a damn thing, really. However, Sabaton is notoriously difficult to understand without displayed lyrics due to the heavy guitar and drums, and "The Last Stand" is no exception. As such, the song is often interpreted as a song about the Crusades (due to audible references to the Holy See, and the first line of the chorus, "For the Grace and the Might of our Lord!"), not a song about disgruntled German mercenaries plundering one of Christianity's holiest cities because they weren't being paid (also, the last Crusades were in the 1400s). Entire videos are posted playing the song over footage from documentaries about the Crusades, and comments for every video of it on YouTube seem to consist of either people saying "Deus Vult!" (allcaps optional) or the (more likely ignored) people trying to point out what the song is actually about. It also seems to have become one of many theme songs for the alt-right movement.

If you're into metal, it's a damn good song. Just don't scroll down if you value your faith in humanity.[note 3]

Legacy media[edit]

Any conventional publication, such as newspapers and TV News, contrasted with "new media" or "alternative news" such as YouTube videos and Breitbart. Expect flimsy justifications for the latter being better, such as vague claims about "big money," "narratives" or "agendas", and probably sidelong references to Jews owning it.

Listen and believe[edit]

Typical alt-right hyperbole, showing the phrase "Listen and Believe" as some form of pseudo-1984 newspeak.

Listen and believe is the idea that left-wingers lower on the "progressive stack" will always accept worldviews from their superiors unquestioningly and without any evidence but the speaker's word. While some cases can be trawled up of people actually trying this tactic, the alt-right acts as though this the sole basis of everything the left thinks. Ironically enough, the alt-right itself — which seeks to encourage strict societal roles and often opposes democracy itself — comes closer to enforcing this idea than the often-horizontally-organized left. The precise phrase is based on an Anita Sarkeesian quote taken out of context, and thus a reminder of the overlap between the alt-right and Gamergate.


See the main article on this topic: Media was wrong before

Lügenpresse is a German word meaning, "lying press," effectively being fake news. Lügenpresse is used by PEGIDA, Richard Spencer,[104] and the like to mean "media that isn't white supremacist". The term was originally popularized by the original minister of Nazi propaganda, Josef Goebbels,[138] but the term preceded the rise of Nazism in Germany and was used in World War I to refer to enemy propaganda.[138][139]

PEGIDA's use of Lügenpresse

Mainstream media[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Mainstream media

Since the mainstream media (also abbreviated to MSM) isn't filled with fellow neo-Nazis spouting the alt-right's conspiracy theories and talking points, they are clearly an enemy of the [[[West]] and must be brought down! Funnily enough, Fox News isn't typically lumped in with the mainstream media, in spite of them being one of the largest news companies in the world. This shows that it is politics, not actually size, that indicates whether or not you are a part of the mainstream media. The mainstream media is also the subject of conspiracy theories such as being controlled by the Jews.

Make America Great Again[edit]

The lesser known slogan.
Abbreviation: MAGA

"Make America Great Again" was Donald Trump's campaign slogan. Although it's one of the most used terms by the alt-right, the slogan "Let's Make America Great Again" was ironically used by Ronald Reagan as part of a pro-immigrant speech.[140] Reagan, it should also be noted, also signed the law that gave amnesty to over 3 million undocumented immigrants.[141] Notably, the phrase was also used by Bill Clinton during his 1992 presidential campaign,[142] and during Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign.[143]


Magapede was used primarily on boards like 8chan /pol/. It refers to Trump supporters who do not subscribe to antisemitic or racist views. It is similar to cuckservative.

Mass immigration[edit]

See the main article on this topic: mass immigration

"Mass immigration" is a dysphemism for any immigration to "white" countries from "nonwhite" countries (except when they're the honorary Aryans of East Asia). Mass immigration is viewed by the alt-right as a precursor to one world government, white genocide and other nasty things. It is never discussed when it is white people taking over "nonwhite" places in history.

Milk chugging[edit]

The alt-right has been drawn to milk chugging.[144] And why not? Afterall, the Watermelon ManWikipedia's W.svg chugged milk[145] and was drawn to milk baths.[146]

Moon Man[edit]

The alt-right version of the Moon Man giving the 👌🏻 sign

The Moon Man is the name given to a parody of McDonald's commercial mascot Mac Tonight,Wikipedia's W.svg who sings racist parodies of rap songs in a text-to-speech program. Fan art of Moon Man usually features the death of black people.[147][148] Like Pepe, Moon Man was an innocuous internet joke for years before the alt-right existed.[149] Ironically, the original Mac Tonight character sang a jingle based on the English-language version of the song "Mack the Knife"Wikipedia's W.svg ("Die Moritat von Mackie Messer"), written by Weimar-era German socialists Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brecht for their explicitly anti-fascist musical The Threepenny Opera.


See the main article on this topic: Multiculturalism

For the alt-right, multiculturalism (often multiCULTi or multi-kulti) is a process aimed at destroying white culture because THE JEWS. Multiculturalism is often asserted to be a "failed experiment" or treated as if it is a religious belief.


How could anyone not see the difference?
See the main article on this topic: Neo-Nazism

Nobody in the alt-right is a Nazi and nobody in the alt-right subscribes to Nazism. Not one. They just believe that white ethnostates are essential, that preservation of the white race is the ultimate goal, and think that their enemies are Communist Jews. They also want a new Christian crusade, want to deny the Holocaust, and want to rally under a modified Nazi war ensign.

That the alt-right are indeed actual Nazis is perhaps the only thing that The Daily Stormer and Mike Godwin (of Godwin's Law fame) can agree upon:

Well, tough luck, fags. The alt-right is just a euphemism for Nazism.
The Daily Stormer, actual Nazi website[150]
By all means, compare these shitheads to the Nazis. Again and again. I'm with you.
—Mike Godwin, referring to the Unite the Right rally[151]


See the main article on this topic: Neoreaction

Neoreaction (NRx) is the alt-right's "intellectual" elder brother. NRxionaries cite "science"; alt-righters cite memes. Neoreactionaries generally believe that social order requires strong social hierarchies (so class, race, and gender equality are right out) and strong leaders (which often leads to neoreactionaries supporting monarchies). For a comprehensive rebuttal of (notoriously long-winded) neoreactionary writing, see Scott Alexander's Anti-Reactionary FAQ.[152]

Nimble navigator[edit]

A nimble navigator (or centipede) is a Trump supporter.[80]

The term originated from the YouTube series "You Can't Stump the Trump"[153] mid 2015, where the track "Centipede" by Knife PartyWikipedia's W.svg plays as the introduction. The introduction to the track contains audio from a BBC nature documentary in which a centipede is described as a "predator" and "nimble navigator", likening it to Trump himself in the context of the video.

It was quickly picked up as a meme by Trump supporters (especially /r/the_donald) and centipede became synonymous with Trump and his supporters, to the chagrin of entomologists everywhere. We're still waiting for them to realize that when abbreviated to "Pedes" it sounds like they're calling each other paedophiles, it's been over three years…


Normie is a 4chan term originating on the /r9k/ board as a (usually pejorative) descriptor for people and things that are mainstream. In alt-right usage, it generally refers to anything external to the alt-right universe. For example, in requesting anonymity an alt-right member stated, "I have a 'normie' [conventional] job and I don't want to get punished for this [interview]."[104]


The basic noticer image[154][155]

A noticer is an antisemite who "notices" supposed "coincidences" of an imagined international Jewish conspiracy. See also triple parentheses.[156] The "noticer" image shows a person with what is supposed to be a laserlike glare, usually blueish-white, or sometimes red. The basic "noticer" image uses the bust of Roman senator Cicero.Wikipedia's W.svg[157][158]


Two versions of Wojak from 4chan

A term used in gaming, meaning "non-player character," the alt-right attempted to appropriate it to dehumanize their opponents as bluepilled in October 2018, supposedly as a way to mock the abbreviation "PC" (as in "Person of Color" or "politically correct"). It is used in a similar manner to "SJW", the implication being that like NPCs in video games, left-wingers are scripted and brainwashed, regurgitate the same old talking points on a loop, and lack the ability to think critically.[159] The meme culminated in a flood of spam accounts and bots on Twitter, each one having a username like "NPC93457234" (always 8 digits) and the same grey avatar or the Wojak avatar, posting typical straw men arguments of the left.[160] The Wojak avatar originated in 2018 on 4chan in an attempt to dehumanize SJWs.[161][162]

The alt-right's use of NPC shows a severe lack of understanding of how AI can work in video games (and overlooking advantages AI can have to the point of being unbeatable in certain games). Really, the function of the NPC depends on the game played, and ironically, how an NPC behaves is incredibly diverse and varied due to the sheer amount of game genres out there with NPCs supplying tasks suited to the genre, with some games (notably level creator or life simulation games) allowing you to control their behavior and their dialogue spoken. As usual, the irony is lost on them.

Operation Google[edit]

Operation Google is an ongoing attempt by alt-righters to circumvent Google's anti-racial-slur policies. As such, Operation Google is a code-word list of slurs:[163][164]

Yes, they actually use this. Yes, it's incredibly cringey. Yes, it's ridiculously transparent.

Our guy[edit]

Our guy, or /our guy/, is someone who represents the core beliefs and values of a community.[165] The term originated on 4chan.[165] On 4chan's /pol/ board, and in alt-right usage, someone is "our guy" if they are thought to hold alt-right or "red-pilled" political beliefs (either openly or in secret).[165][166][167][168][169]

Oy vey[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Oy vey

"Oy vey" is a Yiddish expression of dismay. The alt-right is fond of ironically using "oy vey", because it makes them feel edgy.[citation NOT needed] "Oy vey" is seen in "Oy vey, the goyim know, shut it down."[170] (implying that Jews are part of a worldwide shadowy conspiracy) or "Oy vey, remember the 6 trillion."[171] (implying that the Holocaust was faked to guilt-trip people into supporting some "Jewish agenda").


Pepe being used in the service of Trump
See the main article on this topic: Pepe the Frog

Pepe is a frog who likes to get high and who feels bad, man. Everything else is not canon (i.e., corrupted by 4chan and the alt-right from the original Boy's Club comic).


Pol ("politically incorrect"), or /pol/, is the name of two political discussion boards on 4chan (4chan#/pol/) and 8chan (8chan#/pol/), respectively. The boards' stated purpose is "discussion of news, world events, political issues, and other related topics."[172] More accurately, /pol/ would be described as a cesspool of hate.[173][note 4] The alt-right has used the boards since it has been one of the few places where they can hear about world events from the perspective of neo-Nazis, white supremacists, racists and conspiracy theorists.[173][174][175] The board's users have started "red-pilling" pranks and hoaxes such as the #EndFathersDay false flag Twitter campaign[176] and the smear campaign against cartoonist Ben Garrison.[177]

See Cultural Marxism.

Power level[edit]

A person's "power level" indicates how deeply someone has fallen into fascist ideology. Internet Nazis often advise each other to "hide their power level" when speaking to those outside the fold, so as to avoid scaring away potential recruits with overt Nazi rhetoric or symbols (milk before meat). When a person uses such rhetoric in a public setting, they are "revealing their power level". The phrase comes from the Dragon BallWikipedia's W.svg media franchise, and is also generally used on 4chan to describe one's knowledge of a topic, usually "nerd stuff" (so, in a non-Nazi usage, "hiding power level" may refer to not revealing too much about one's knowledge of video games, comic books, anime and other topics).[178]

Proud Boys[edit]

Proud Boys are a less-overtly-but-still-pretty-fucking-openly racist alt-right gang that was founded by Gavin McInnes (co-founder of Vice Media). McInnes has openly admitted to Proud Boys being a straight-up gang. Their emphasis is on "Western values" rather than being white.[47] A street-fighting subgroup of Proud Boys, called "Fraternal Order of the Alt-Knights" (FOAK), includes as part of its initiation process gang-style hazing.[179][180] Although McInnes told the Proud Boys not to go to the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, the organizer of the rally (Jason Kessler) had in fact been a Proud Boy who was interviewed by McInnes before the rally.[181] The Proud Boys in fact do attract the same men who are attracted to white nationalism, those who think, "Our culture is better than yours. Our women need to stay home and make more babies. Our country has no more space for immigrants. We are being persecuted."[181]


#PunchANazi was a brief false flag Twitter campaign staged by the alt-right to smear liberals as violent extremists.[183] The campaign consisted of showing pictures of heavily bruised women, children, and senior citizens (all white, naturally) accompanied by captions sarcastically stating that these people were probably Nazis and therefore deserved it. This was all done to convince people that leftists are insane fanatics who advocate violence and brutality against innocent people under the vague suspicion that they might be Nazis. The campaign crashed and burned almost immediately because it was too transparently dishonest for even the Internet to believe — which really says a lot.

Race realism[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Racialism

Race realism (or "Human Biodiversity") is a pseudoscientific (and ironic) euphemism for the alt-right's racist beliefs. Use of the word "realism" is meant to both imply that there is a scientific basis to claims made about minority groups (despite the fact that most actual scientists have been able to find no such evidence whatsoever) and to implicitly accuse dissenters of denying reality.

Red pill[edit]

Taking the red pill is synonymous with converting to alt-right views.[104] A red pill is something — news, text, or meme — that justifies alt-right views. A red-piller is someone who has converted to alt-right views or someone who converts others to alt-right views. Red-pilling or dropping red pills is the act of recruiting people to the alt-right cause. Someone who has taken the red pill is based. Someone who has not taken the red pill is bluepilled or cucked. A hard red pill is an argument that they think is really convincing.

The term is a reference to The Matrix,Wikipedia's W.svg in which taking the red pill means learning the truth about society to which most others remain happily oblivious, while taking the blue pill means remaining part of the sheeple and believing that nothing is wrong. Alt-righters use this terminology as a means of advocating for (ironically enough) a more traditional way of life; in most cases, this requires the belief that progressiveness and social equality are the oppressive status quo and that the authoritarian bigotry upheld by the alt-right is subversive and revolutionary. That way, you can act like a fascist and still feel like you're speaking truth to power.

For humor: the term references the pill taken by a black manWikipedia's W.svg in The Matrix, which enlightens one about the flaws in the system in a movie made by two transgender women,Wikipedia's W.svg and is an allegory for the coming out process of transgender people, with the pill itself representing HRT medication.[184] Or: alt-righters can't even watch The Matrix right.

Remember the 6 trillion[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Holocaust denial

The phrase "oy vey, remember the 6 trillion"[note 5] implies that the Holocaust was faked to guilt-trip people into supporting some "Jewish agenda". Anything of the form remember the 6 [X]illion[185] (in particular, 6 gorillion[186]) is a reference to this.

Remove kebab[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Genocide

Remove kebab originates in a propaganda video (called Serbia Strong) produced by three Bosnian Serb soldiers in tribute to Radovan Karadžić,Wikipedia's W.svg who was convicted for war crimes against Bosnian Muslims.Wikipedia's W.svg Someone produced a truly intellectual copypasta that begins:[187]

REMOVE KEBAB remove kebab you are worst turk. you are the turk idiot you are the turk smell. return to croatioa. to our croatia cousins you may come our contry. you may live in the zoo….ahahahaha ,bosnia we will never forgeve you. cetnik rascal FUck but fuck asshole turk stink bosnia sqhipere shqipare..

In short: "remove kebab" positively references the killing, expulsion, and genocide of Muslims ("kebabs"). And yes, they think it's edgy.[188][189] The proper response may be found in Polandball.[190]

The phrase received more mainstream media attention after its use by the perpetrator of the Christchurch terrorist attacks.[191]


RWDS is an acronym for Right Wing Death Squads.[192] Alt-righters hope for right wing death squads so that their enemies (communists, black people, Muslims and Jews) can be killed.[193][194][195][196][197][198] Like many alt-right memes it is indistinguishable from parody and therefore can be misinterpreted as a joke.[199]


Things or people the alt-right dislikes are Sad! and therefore cucked. The term originates with Donald Trump's Tweet style.[80] "Sad!" is also used by anti-Trumpers in an ironic sense.


See the main article on this topic: Evil Jew

The alt-right uses shekel, a Hebrew word (with Akkadian etymology[200]) for money (and Israel's current currency), to imply that something has been funded by the Jews and is thus tainted.


Or more rarely shitlady. An alt-right Internet troll.[104] The term has its roots on the left where it was used to describe bigots and trolls posting "ironic" bigotry, but it is increasingly worn as a badge of pride by them, in the manner of "Yes, I'm one of those evil white cisgender shitlords." Edgelord is a similar term used in the broader internet community (e.g., manosphere, Gamergate, 4chan), which in addition to trolling includes deliberately offensive contributions to Internet forums.


Shlomo, meaning peaceable, is a common Hebrew male given name. Those in the alt-right use Shlomo as a synonym of Jewish.[201][202] Alt-right trolls will often use aliases such as Shlomo Shekelberg on social media.[203][204][note 6] Such accounts often use the Happy Merchant as their profile picture.[206]


See the main article on this topic: Holocaust

Shoah ("catastrophe" or "calamity") is the Hebrew term used since the 1940s to describe the Holocaust. Alt-right website The Right Stuff has a podcast called The Daily Shoah, its name being both a play on The Daily Show and a deliberately offensive reference to the Holocaust.[207] In alt-right circles, shoah'd essentially means "shut down", and usually refers to the suspension of an alt-righter's social media account.[83][208][209][210][211]

Yair Rosenberg explains how those in the alt-right use the term:

On Twitter, whenever a Jew expresses concern about anti-Semitism or other bigotry, alt-right trolls invariably pop up to exclaim, "oy vey, it’s anudda shoah!" Thus, they trivialize both the contemporary concern and the Holocaust in one ugly utterance.[212]

Alt-righters sometimes use variants such as "grandchild of Holocaust survivors."[213] The phrase may originate with a Paul Joseph Watson tweet.[214] In some cases, these may be outright lies intended to discredit the Holocaust; in others there may be some truth to the statement as with Mike Peinovich who uses his ancestry as cover for his bigotry.[215][216]


See the main article on this topic: George Soros

George Soros is a rich Jew who supports liberal causes. As such, he is seen as a shadowy puppetmaster among the alt-right. In particular, it is common to claim that X protest or Y rally or Z person was "funded by Soros". Antifa (or more likely "the terrorist group known as (((Antifa)))") is a particularly common thing to tie to him.

Soy boy[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Soy boy

Similar to "cuck", soy boy (or soyboi) is a pejorative term used by the alt-right to describe men on the left. It is also used as a homophobic dog-whistle to dehumanize LGBT men. It is based off the high phytoestrogen content in soy — phytoestrogens being plant-based chemicals that potentially have estrogenic effects when eaten. Estrogen is a hormone involved in female body development, but is also naturally found at lower levels in men. Alt-right men such as Paul Joseph Watson have claimed that consuming soy will make men "girly" by polluting their precious bodily fluids, even though no science has pointed to high consumption of soy "feminizing" men. The alt-right uses this as "proof" that the person they're talking about is a girly-man to mock and brush off. See beta.


SPQR is an abbreviation for the Latin Senātus Populusque Rōmānus, or "the Senate and People of Rome", one of the phrases associated with the Roman Republic and the Empire.[note 7] It was mostly associated with the civic sphere, as it mentions, well, the Roman Senate and people. However, in the grand tradition of fascists taking things and ruining them for everyone, the alt-right has begun using the slogan and associated banners due to a misconception of its association with the Roman military, as well as its use by (who else?) Benito Mussolini.[218][219] The irony of a motto traditionally used to denote a (semi-) democratic republic being used by fascists is, sadly, lost on most people.

Straight pride[edit]

Straight pride is a homophobic talking point[220] that claims, "There's gay pride but why not straight pride?" The answer is because heterosexuals are not oppressed as a group in society.


Derived from the name of the satirical blog Stuff White People Like , a SWPL is an affluent white person who's politically progressive, i.e. a virtue signalling cuck.

Tiki torch[edit]

Peasants with Tiki® Torches and who forgot their pitchforks — Charlottesville

The alt-right co-opted the Tiki® Torch, an innocent barbecue torch, against the manufacturer's wishes and for their own nefarious purposes.[221] Richard Spencer said, "We've really gotten into the tiki torch nationalism, we’ve embraced it, I love it."[69] The use of Tiki Torches by racists is loaded with irony because:

  • The torches and pitchforks trope,[222] particularly parodies such as Mel Brooks' Young Frankenstein.[223] When a mob using torches and/or pitchforks is going after a hero(es) in the drama, it often results in the shaming of the mob,[222] as was the case with the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in August 2017.
  • The word tiki originates from Polynesian languages. Tiki was a culture hero in much of Polynesia; among the Maori, Tiki was the first human.[224]

The use of torches as threatening instruments goes back to the Bible (John 18:3), but the more likely cultural reference for the alt-right is with the KKK's use of torches for cross burning to intimidate, and with the use of torchlight processions by Nazis at the Nuremberg rallies.[225]


Similar to Fashwave, Trumpwave is a political, pro-Trump (read: neo-Nazi) variant of the non-political/non-racist music genres Vaporwave and Synthwave. More often than not, Trumpwave songs have the same messages as their Fashwave counterparts which are: stock footage, catchy tunes, and cover art littered with fascist or, in this case, Trump imagery.

We wuz kangz n shieet[edit]

We wuz kangz n shieet (literally, "We were kings and shit.") mocks the claims of black nationalism about the race of the Ancient Egyptians by using linguistic racism (pseudo-African American Vernacular English).[226] It implies that African Americans are incapable of understanding history and thus make absurd claims. This hypocritically ignores the pseudohistory worship of the alt-right itself, such as Holocaust denial. Sometimes, they even use it when nobody talks about Egypt and just say something positive on Black history before the triangular trade.Wikipedia's W.svg


Weimerica (a pormanteau of Weimar Germany and America) refers to the alt-right's view of contemporary America as a new iteration of Weimar Germany. Often, alt-righters who use "Weimerica" will refer to the progressive trends in America and compare them to Weimar Germany for not being white, racist and Christian enough.[227]

Western civilization[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Western world

For the alt-right, Western civilization is all that is good.

White devil[edit]

A phrase that often crops up when discussing the presumed internal thoughts of non-white individuals. This is an actual phrase used by the black supremacist Nation of Islam, but of course it's generalised to every non-white person thinking this way.[228] Whitey, and the more contemporary wypipo, may be employed in a similar manner.

White genocide[edit]

See the main article on this topic: White genocide

White genocide is the idea that, on a worldwide scale, white people are undergoing a systematic genocide of their gene line and of their culture.

Since the people who promote it are generally racist idiots, "white genocide" usually (if not always) boils down to non-white or partially white people having babies. Or migrating. Or dating white people. Or existing, period.

White guilt[edit]

White guilt is a mysterious force emanated by the left and manufactured at universities that makes white people disagree with the alt-right. It is based upon misrepresenting Western civilization as not having done anything bad, ever. It is usually brought up whenever somebody mentions slavery or colonialism in anything but an apologist tone. Basically, it's the new way to claim non-racist whites are "race traitors".

White sharia[edit]

"White sharia" is an extreme type of patriarchy wherein the belief that white women should be submissive to white men and that their sole purpose is to produce babies[229] (basically Kinder, Küche, Kirche). The Daily Stormer frequently pushes this idea in their articles, an example of horseshoe theory in action.


See white devil.


Wigger is a portmanteau of "white" and "nigger". A white person who appears to emulate (or is accused of desiring to adopt) aspects of – often stereotypicalAfrican American culture. It was initially used strictly in a cultural sense in the 1990s.[230] It is increasingly used moronically ironically to refer to white people who hate African American culture, or African Americans in general. It is also used in compound forms, such as "wignat" ("wigger nationalist"), indistinguishable in practice from "white nationalist", especially since the Clown World motif came into use.[231]


A windmill or sometimes "windmill of friendship" is a (usually ASCII or copypasted) swastika, typically as used on Reddit or gaming platforms such as Twitch or Steam.[232][233] Ironically, Trump thinks that windmills might cause cancer.[234]


Woke as a political term of African American origin refers to a perceived awareness of issues concerning social justice and racial justice. It is derived from the African American Vernacular English expression "stay woke", whose grammatical aspect refers to a continuing awareness of these issues. Its widespread use since 2014 is a result of the Black Lives Matter movement. The alt-right and reactionaries use the term "woke" as an anti-progressive smear against an individual or a corporation promoting a socially progressive message.


YKW is an acronym for You know who., i.e. Jews. YKW can also be used innocuously, meaning "you know what".[235]

You will not replace us.[edit]

See Jews will not replace us.

Gallery of symbols and flags[edit]

The following flags and symbols have been observed at alt-right rallies in the US, particularly Unite the Right.
