Joan Walsh and Joy Reid are credited for coining the term, “alt left.” What does it mean? Nothing. It’s simply a smear used to equate the overtly racist “alt right” with anti-racist, pro-equality progressives. Recently, to their dismay, President Trump appropriated their “alt left” term, which prompted another pundit, David Shuster, to call on them to apologize for giving Trump a word to use to perpetuate the false equivalence between two diametrically opposing sides. Instead, they refused to apologize and implied Shuster was racist and sexist for suggesting they should, and he subsequently put them in their place… and it was glorious.
