4Chan is a social-media community that uses the internet to communicate, with members discussing topics ranging from politics to politics and entertainment to entertainment.
It’s the hub of the alt-right, a far-right ideology that advocates for an America that is ethnically and culturally distinct from other countries.
4Chan was the home of the Gamergate movement that led to the 2016 election of Donald Trump, and was the scene of a 2016 video in which the alt right’s leader and former top White House adviser, Milo Yiannopoulos, described 4Chan as a “cancer” that needs to be removed.
Yiannopoulos, who has since resigned from the administration, later called for the “destruction” of the site, which was founded in 2005.
The video, titled “What’s in a name?,” was a compilation of 4Chan videos, with a focus on “social justice warriors” who advocate for racial and sexual equality, feminism and other social justice issues.
Yiannopoulos argued that 4Chan has become the “platform for the alt Right” and urged people to “take back our country.”
“What we’re seeing now is a whole new generation of activists who have been emboldened to speak out on their own behalf, and to speak for others,” Yiannopoulos told the New York Times in 2016.
The term “alt right” is derived from the term “Alt-Right,” which was created by alt-righters to describe the right-wing movement that seeks to preserve the values of white nationalism, white supremacy and the supremacy of capitalism. “
This is what I call a new fascism.”

After the Gamergate controversy, 4Chan became a popular source for online discussions about social justice and politics.
In the wake of the 2016 US election, 4chan and its users have repeatedly shared videos from the far-left and right, as well as videos from far-Right groups, like the Proud Boys.
In December 2017, the site banned an anti-Semitic video posted by the Proud Boy, and in January 2018, 4channers were reportedly banned from posting images of Nazi symbols.
The site’s owner, Alex Jones, was accused of inciting violence in 2016 after he called for people to fight Trump supporters at a rally in Washington DC.
“The alt right is a group of people who have very little understanding of what fascism is, what a Nazi is, or what it’s like to be a fascist,” Jones said.
“The alt-left is a much bigger group of extremists.”
Jones’ followers have also launched campaigns to discredit mainstream outlets like The New York Daily News and the New Republic.
In February 2018, the Daily Beast published an article claiming that the group is linked to “a white nationalist conspiracy,” including an alleged tweet from a Twitter account that claimed to be associated with the group.
“A number of the most prominent alt-Right figures are white nationalists,” the article stated.
“It’s worth noting that, like most white nationalist groups, they do not advocate violence and are more concerned with the economic and social conditions of people of color, and especially LGBTQ people.”
The Daily Beast said the account was a troll account created by Jones, and that the writer was not involved in the group at all.
Shortly after the Daily News article was published, Jones’ account was suspended.
In March 2018, Jones tweeted that the Daily Mail “has an actual white supremacist reporter” and that they “have a piece about white supremacy in The Daily Mail.”
Following the publication of that article, the account also tweeted a link to an article titled “The Daily Stormer: the world’s biggest troll” that accused Jones of “linking white nationalism to the alt Left.”
The tweet included an image of a Nazi flag with the words “Nazi, Klan, and Proud Boys” scrawled in white.
The article was subsequently removed.
In May 2018, Yiannopoulos and his followers began using 4Chan to promote their views.
The following month, they also began promoting their own videos on the site.
A representative for 4chan confirmed to VICE News that 4chan was hosting the videos on its site, and did not say whether or not the site hosts or hosts other content.
Despite the recent wave of activity, 4Channers have also faced criticism from mainstream outlets.
In August 2018, The New Yorker published an investigation into how the alt left uses 4Chan and its image boards to recruit followers.
According to the story, 4 Channers have reportedly used 4Chan “to recruit new members for a movement they are now attempting to infiltrate, to make it look like the alt RIGHT is growing in popularity.”
In December 2018, Vice News reported that “the alt-rights’ main online forum, 4c, had been the target of a sustained campaign of harassment and death threats.” Earlier
