Stop using the euphemisms "alt right" + "nationalism" for White Supremacism!

This petition had 77,586 supporters


The New York Times and other media are using the more acceptable sounding  (and inaccurate)  terms "alt right" for "white supremacist" and “nationalist” for “white nationalist” in its reporting.  This is misleading and dangerous. It normalizes the extremist views taking hold in our country.

Its own reporting "Alt-Right Exults in Donald Trump’s Election With a Salute: ‘Heil Victory’" (NYT 11-20-16),  describes the leader of the white supremacist movement,  Richard B. Spencer, as having coined the phrase "alt right" and defining it as "a movement with white identity as its core idea."  Yet the very headline of the piece regurgitates this deceitful terminology!  

It doesn't matter your political party or for whom you voted. If you are against white supremacism and euphemisms to describe it, then this petition is for you. Please sign and share it far and wide if you are so inclined. We have to raise awareness!
