The ‘Alt-Lite’ White House Reporter Who Got Arrested at UConn Has a Heavily Racist Roadie
But there was a more subtle message, as well: that his “alt-lite” cabal of race-baiting pro-Trump social media influencers, which also includes Yiannopoulos, Laura Loomer, Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec, were nothing like the Richard Spencer hatemongers of the world; that their less-brutish white identity politics had nothing to do with intolerance.
“They’ll call you racists, and Nazis, but none of it is true,” he planned to tell his audience, according to a transcript of his speech.
But right there, kitted out in MAGA gear and standing by Wintrich’s side, was Cipolla, a racist who has marched alongside neo-Nazis. His social media is littered with racist, hateful remarks and photos of him hanging out with David Duke and other prominent white supremacists, as well as Donald Trump-connected ratfuckers, such as Chuck Johnson and James O’Keefe, who consort with white supremacists. Cipolla’s presence alongside Wintrich is good evidence there is little that’s “lite” about Wintrich’s “alt.”
