Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

IIRC, alt-right started during the Bush years as an umbrella term for the US groups on the right that were not neoconservative. Including, but not limited to the neo-nazis. During Obama, the need for a anti-neoconservative group on the right disappeared and the various groups abandoned the alt-right camp. Except the neo-nazis who found a re-branding useful, as many react negatively to nazis. In combination, ironic nazism develops on 4chan). With Trump elected Spencer takes a victory lap and claims a victory for the alt-right.

So it is probably Spencer you are looking for. And gullible (or evil) journalists who can't or won't see that the proper name isn't alt-right, it's neo-nazism.
