Alt-right eller alternative right (alternative højre) er en dårligt defineret, bred og løst sammensat politisk bevægelse af højreorienterede, som er utilfredse med traditionel konservatisme.[1] Bevægelsen består af alt lige fra liberalister til højreekstremister. Det ideologiske grundlag er en blanding af konservatisme, nationalisme, monokulturalisme og anti-egalitarisme.

Alt-right-ideologien beskrives af dens kritikere som racistisk og blandt andet overlappende med ekstreme ideologier som antisemitisme, nynazisme, antimuslimsk, hvid nationalisme og højrepopulisme af New York Times. Bevægelsen er i høj grad et internetfænomen ifølge The New Yorker.[1] Den identitære bevægelse i Europa svarer til USAs alt-right.[2]

Kritikere af begrebet mener, at siden bevægelsen ikke er formelt organiseret, så er der slet ikke tale om en politisk bevægelse, men et ubrugeligt politisk mærkat, som de fleste alligevel vil undsige sig pga. de ekstreme elementer.

You could ask some of the same questions about the alt-right, the loosely assembled far-right movement that exists largely online, and that overlaps with both the Trump campaign and with the politics of Zero Hedge. Richard Spencer, the white nationalist who came up with the term “alt-right,” described the movement in December as “an ideology around identity, European identity.”

He [Richard Spencer] railed against Jews and, with a smile, quoted Nazi propaganda in the original German. America, he said, belonged to white people, whom he called the “children of the sun,” a race of conquerors and creators who had been marginalized but now, in the era of President-elect Donald J. Trump, were “awakening to their own identity.” (…) “Our definition of the alt-right is younger people who are anti-globalists, very nationalist, terribly anti-establishment,” he [Steve Bannon] told The Journal, adding that the alt-right had “some racial and anti-Semitic overtones.”
