Jason Kessler organized a second “Unite the Right” rally, only to attract fewer than 30 attendees and thousands of counter-protesters.
Many of the counter-protesters belonged to Antifa-linked groups, who spent more time attacking police and members of the press than the “alt-right” members in attendance.
The term “alt-right” is misleading for the reason that there’s nothing right-wing about it. Kessler himself admits as much. “It’s a misnomer. This isn’t about uniting the right. I’m just using that name so the people will pay attention and see how differently this event is going to turn out in Charlottesville then it is— I mean in DC than it did Charlottesville.”
Troll Alert: #UniteTheRight2 organizer, Jason Kessler, admits that rally isn't actually American right-wing.

Kessler is open about having voted for Obama, and in the past has tweeted plenty of anti-conservative comments on his now-deleted Twitter account.
I’ve noticed that many of those that identify as “alt-right” are really just socialists that are also racists. The man who coined the term “alt-right,” Richard Spencer, admitted in an interview from Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie Death of a Nation that he’s a progressive who wants nationalized health care, government control of the economy, and opposes free speech. He also said he didn’t think Reagan was a good President and named two Democrats as his favorites. In other interviews, Spencer has confirmed that he’s pro-choice on abortion.
I only mention that because figures like Kessler and Spencer are portrayed as your typical run-of-the-mill conservatives by the media, when in reality they’re ideologically similar to their opponents in Antifa, with the only real difference being their ethnic nationalism.

As if attracting fewer than 30 people to his rally wasn’t embarrassing enough, just days after the failed rally Kessler was seen on camera being scolded by his father during a live stream.
“Hey!” Kessler’s father yelled. “You get out of my room!”
“Sorry, I’m having an issue here,” Kessler tells fellow alt-right member Patrick Little.
“You got a drunk roommate there?” Little asks.
“Something like that….” Kessler says getting cut off by his dad again. Kessler then decided to blame the interruption on the Jews for some reason. “I’ve got somebody that supports Orthodox Israeli… we’re at a crosshairs on that stuff,” he says.
“I want this to stop in my room!” Kessler’s father interrupts again. “This is my room, Jason, this is my room.”
“You’re not staying with an Orthodox Jew, are you?” Little asks.
“No it’s my father,” Kessler explains. “Basically the deal is my family watches American history channel… it’s constant anti-German propaganda.”
“The Nazis, the Jews!,” Kessler mocks, trying to blame his father’s irritation on history documentaries Kessler then admits he lives with his family because of lawsuits. “I am paying for all of these lawsuits and I can’t afford to do that without staying with my family.”

At 34 years of age, Kessler has yet to adopt a core conservative value; pulling oneself up by their own bootstraps.
