The alt-right openly crack jokes about the Holocaust, loudly — albeit almost entirely satirically — expresses its horror at “race-mixing,” and denounces the “degeneracy” of homosexuals … while inviting Jewish gays and mixed-race Breitbart reporters to their secret dinner parties. What gives?If you're this far down the article, you'll know some of the answers already. For the meme brigade, it's just about having fun. They have no real problem with race-mixing, homosexuality, or even diverse societies: It's just fun to watch the mayhem and outrage that erupt when those secular shibboleths are openly mocked. These younger mischief makers instinctively understand who the authoritarians are and why and how to poke fun at them.
