The Alt-Right Declares War on Trump for Betrayal on Immigration, Opposes Reelection

This is a major development which has not been widely noted in the media, alternative or mainstream.

Over the last two weeks the three most influential Alt-Right platforms, the podcasts 'Fash the Nation' and 'The Daily Shoah', and the website, the Daily Stormer, have called on followers to destroy Trump's chances to be reelected because they are furious about his inaction on immigration. A similar mood dominates on 4chan and 8chan, the meme-producing message boards.

They argue, convincingly, that there is so much Trump could have easily done on this issue, and that the fact that he hasn't done any of them shows that he has no intention to do so, and that he is betraying them on the issue they care most about. In this they are echoing conservative critics of Trump on immigration like Anne Coulter.

They further argue, again convincingly, that with the razor-thin margins with which Trump won key swing states, their influence in the alternative and social media is enough to prevent Trump from getting reelected.

This 15 minute segment from Fash the Nation gives a good sense of how angry these people are:

Immigration is the single most important issue which got Trump elected among a struggling working class, and it is the most important issue for the Alt-Right which is a very potent force on the American political scene due to their total dominance of meme culture, something explained in a recent popular article on RI:  The Alt-Right Now Dominates Teen Culture - It Will Change the World.

The meme assault has already begun. Expect an avalanche of abuse to descend on Trump over the coming months, driving down his popularity. Here are a few examples:
