Leading Alt-Right Podcast CRUSHES Russia Hacking Story (Audio - Fash the Nation)

This post first appeared on Russia Insider

This is interesting on a number of levels.

First of all - the weekly Fash the Nation is something of a phenomenon in the podcast world.  It is growing by leaps and bounds, due to two factors - one is the intelligence and talent of the hosts, but as important is that they intepret the week's political events from a new perspective that explains events differently from traditional conservatism.

Second, this segment gives an interesting insight into how the Alt-Right sees Russia.  This is significant, firstly because the Alt-Right is a large and rapidly-growing political movement in the US in their own right, but also because their influence far exceeds their numbers due to their outsized presence in social media, and the intellectual depth of their movement.

The following excerpt was part of the full 3 hour show which aired this past weekend.

We published an article yesterday which outlined typical Alt-Right thinking about Russia.  For an overview of what the Alt-Right is, where it came from, how large it is, and why it is important, the best and most comprehensive article we have seen was written for RI over the summer.

The Alt-Right is effectively the new right wing of the Republican party, which is turning into a very different party than it was just a few years ago - seemingly moving both right and left simultaneously.
