Another mistake in the Buzzfeed glossary is saying that Discord is for "far right groups", it's just an IM/Voice chat app for gamers. So yes there would be a presence of far right people, but there's also a far left (for example, Communist) presence on the site as well, same goes for moderates or even apolitical people. Buzzfeed (like much of the media these days) seems to have a knee-jerk reaction to certain new platforms for communication or activities and are prone to start moral panics. This isn't anything new, the Christians back in the 80s made a big deal about how the local D & D dungeonmasters would turn your teenagers into Satanist Liberals, the left is capable of this same fearmongering.

You know, I somehow missed that the first time. And considering that I'm on 14 Discord servers, I'd like to think it's for more than just "far right groups".

Our CS club used to use Discord, or so I heard.  Moved to Slack because...fucked if I know?  Its just a pretty IRC, but then again, we're talking about a group with a large proportion of Linux fanboys, so I don't expect much sense in the first place.

As you can see, the Alt-Right is a heterogenous group with many varying opinions. For example, some oppose abortion because it gives women a choice, while others support abortion because they support eugenics and aborting "defective" or non-white fetuses. Both groups agree that women should not be allowed to make the choice whether or not to abort the fetus they are carrying, so there is still some common ground that they can agree on.

Yes, I know that this sounds like the old joke (possibly from cyanide and happiness, though I can't be certain) but no opinion is too "evil" or "stupid" for the Alt-Right.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Quite. When your political ideology is being the most contemptuous wanker imaginable, these things tend to happen.
Does anyone take Donald Trump seriously, anymore?

Neo-Nazis trying to recruit kids. Because:

Quote
The Daily Stormer was designed to appeal to teenagers, but I have long thought that we needed to get pre-teens involved in the movement. At that age, you can really brainwash someone easily. Anyone who accepts Nazism at the age of 10 or 11 is going to be a Nazi for life.

Note the bolded part, they aren't even denying that they are trying to brainwash kids.

The last time I heard of something this heinous was a Pink-Black lesbian saying that they should "recruit" girls into being lesbians because 10 year olds are really malleable and the best way to turn them into lesbians is fucking them until they like it. (Note that I know that that person is not an example of what most LGBT people are like.)

Except the Nazies who instead insist that the pope is a communist.

They forget that one, brainwashing doesn't work that way (the term these dumb apes are looking for is 'indoctrination') and, two, deprogramming is not only a thing, it can happen with normal life experience.  Fuck, I was technically indoctrinated into Christianity as a child, and we all know how well THAT ended up going.

What is that, ironbite?

I think I'm seeing something here myself. The alt-right and Milo...hm, perhaps more appropriate a match than I figured.
I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!

Meanwhile Milo and the Alt-Right still have a love-hate affair. And by this I mean that Milo insists that the Alt-Right does not hate homosexuals and the Nazi symbolism is all a big joke. Meanwhile the Alt-right insist that they really are Nazis and hate "degenerates" like Milo.

All while the alt-right talks in a suspiciously "degenerate" fashion about children, and taking advantage of them. And allows such fellows as August Kreis III to join their parties.

They're basically the two people in a rom-com who just cannot admit they were made for each other.

Alt-right and 4Chan have tried to influence the elections in France. Not much success apparently.

a) Their "leaked Macron Emails" were poorly faked: https://www.reddit.com/r/europe/comments/69h2ku/macron_offshore_account_4chan_trolls_forgot_to/ http://www.numerama.com/politique/254983-compte-offshore-demmanuel-macron-une-intox-venue-de-4chan.html (adding the Reddit thread because the original is in French and the thread has talk about it in English.)

EDIT: English article about this: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-france-election-macron-leaks-idUSKBN1812AZ

Note that Macron is not allowed to come out and say that the "leaks" are fake or altered because the campaigning has legally ended. And any media (or Le Pen associate) that releases these "leaks" is committing a crime because the campaigning has legally ended and doing anything that might influence the voters is illegal and punishable. Which just means that the only people spreading the leaks are random folks on social media.

b) When they aren't making fake-news they are posting memes IN ENGLISH. Also using the same anti-semitic conspiracy theories that worked well in USA but aren't as popular in France. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/04/technology/french-elections-alt-right-fake-news-le-pen-macron.html?_r=1
