The Alt-Right Is Woke

We didn’t know what to expect. Between the eight us there were only two bul­let­proof vests. And we all had our girls to worry about. As Loren Feld­man the film­maker said, they were “uncon­trol­lable” and insisted that they remain in the thick of it. One of them’s preg­nant. So a hand­ful of us drove out to a mall in sub­ur­ban Cleve­land to pre­pare. We took a green Kia Soul that, for the week of the 2016 Repub­li­can National Con­ven­tion at least, was an alt-right Pepe mobile, fat-lipped grin on the front grille made from two strips of wide, rose-colored rub­ber. Not every­one knew their memes; you either got it and smiled or you just didn’t see.
