Alternative Right is an alt-right website created by Richard Spencer[wp] and Colin Liddell[1][2] in 2010 and the "New Alternative Right" webzine, edited by Liddell and Andy Nowicki, that was created when the first website was shut down in 2013.[3][4] Richard Spencer's Alternative Right was hosted at AlternativeRight.com and funded by NPI America[wp] before Spencer shut it down, saying it was too much work to manage.[5] The website was inspired by Breitbart News[wp].[6]

The site's white nationalist[wp] stance has attracted criticism from the Anti-Defamation League[wp][7] and it has been described by The Atlantic[wp] as being a "white supremacist" site.[8]

In 2012, Alternative Right published an article written by Colin Liddell, entitled "Is Black Genocide Right?"[9] It stated that the black race[wp] "has contributed almost nothing to the pool of civilization" and asked "whether Black Genocide is something worth considering"; after drawing widespread criticism, the article was deleted from the site.[10]

In May 2013, Yahoo! News reported that Jason Richwine, then a scholar at the Heritage Foundation[wp] and co-author of a controversial study on the costs of amnesty, had published an article and blog at AlternativeRight.com in 2010. The Rachel Maddow Show[wp] publicized these findings in a segment of the program on May 9, 2013.[11]

In July 2015, Stephanie Saul of The New York Times interviewed Colin Liddell about the Alternative Right.[12]


Alternative Right has been an object of criticism from both the left and right wings. Examples of the former include the Southern Poverty Law Center[wp], which has characterized the site as "yet another far-right[wp] magazine," as well as "loaded with contributors who...have long lamented the white man's decline."[2] Conservative[wp] critiques include E. D. Kain's contention at True/Slant[wp], that "the far-right-wingers at Alternative Right represent the ugly - and yes racist[wp] - underbelly of 'alt' conservatism. This is white nationalism[wp], folks, dressed up in faux-intellectualism."[13]

In March 2010, Spencer was interviewed by Tim Mak of FrumForum, the online magazine of George W. Bush[wp] speechwriter David Frum[wp]. Mak concluded that Alternative Right's "ideas belong in some sort of padded room," and that its writers are "going to be white nationalists, but, by God, they're going to be a little fancy about it."[14]
