No, we're using what Trump said.

We own both terms. But alt-left gains more traction when the media is obsessed with alt-right. ctrl-left might imply they are opposite alt-right in some kind of good way, alt-left makes more of the point of turning their own obsession with bigoted extremists against those in their own midst.

The accurate term is still Ctrl-Left. However, the president recent used the term Alt-Left: It was a successful strategy as it (1) deflected the Alt term from the non-regressives, and at the same time (2) attacked the regressives with their own term.

It shifted the power of the word from being applied exclusively to the former and it now applies to both; Ctrl-Left would not have accomplished this.

 


Edit:

  • Are we letting the media dictate to us what we should be saying?

Using their own weight against them is not 'allowing them to dictate our speech'. Keep in mind that they, the mainstream media, have a stranglehold on a lot of the normal, everyday people (i.e. "normies").

I think cntrl-left only looks good on the computer or when typed. But saying it is annoying. Saying alt left is annoying too. Democrat works just as well in almost all cases except when discussing more moderate democrats. But that doesn't come up much as they just go along with the party like republican moderates.

It should be the White left.

That way it will be easier to split them from BLM.
