Signs That You Are a Member of the Extreme Left or the Alt-Right

Signs That You Are a Member of the Extreme Left or the Alt-Right

By Don Hall

You tend see the world in terms of race or gender. Or both. Probably both.

You believe that the election of either of the past two presidents signaled the end of democracy.

You argue like an eighth grader.

You have no doubts, at all, that your worldview is unimpeachable leaving no room for progress peacefully.

You think slang terms about (any) racial stereotypes are funny and appropriate.

You have a pathological inability to discuss anything without bringing up how aggrieved you are about the Other Side.

You fetishize your past as if the wounds of your ancestry define you.

You speak as if you are the spokesperson for your side.

You see things in sides and tribes and reference yourself as a part of a "we."

You wear t-shirts with slogans on them and consider it an agent for change.

You believe anyone not in lockstep with your side is evil or stupid.

You are a master at hyperbole and exaggeration of harm.

You believe carrying signs is activism.

You love the call out culture but hate the social media that makes it possible for Others to do it to you.

You think this list is about you.
