Please … it was cute and all when CNN announced that “alt-left” was just an insult and a “made-up term,” but let’s be serious for a minute. As many suggested, perhaps CNN was just admitting that the mainstream left is so far out there at this point there’s no room for an “alt” version.

As Twitchy noted, it wasn’t long after a college student came forward in a mob toppling of a Confederate statue in Durham, N.C., that her comrades from the Workers World Party were on hand with preprinted “Smash White Supremacy” signs.
