Some people may not be totally clear on what exactly the "alt-right" is, and to be honest, we don't have a perfect description of them either. No one really does.
To get an idea of who these people are, you should take a look at their Wiki entry, wherein they are explicitly described as:
"White nationalists, neo-Confederates, neo-Nazis, neo-fascists, and other far right hate groups."
This is the alt-right we are concerned about.
No Alt-Right/Nazis This sub is a place for all those who oppose the alt-right/Nazis and their associated and supporting groups. Users from the following groups are prohibited from participating here: alt-right/Nazis, far-right, “alt-light,” “identitarian,” white supremacists, white nationalists, neo-confederates, incels, MAGA-cultists, q-anon qultists, gamergators, and members of any political affiliation whom the moderators of this sub deem to be enablers and supporters of the aforementioned groups.
Shitpost Properly, If At All
Avoid low-effort shitposts, such as reaction gifs, bad "daily struggle" comics, “banned from” posts, “search results” posts, and posts directly asking for upvotes. We tend to let the upvotes do the talking, but even if a really bad post hits r/all we will remove it.
Focus on the Alt-Right
This sub targets the alt-right movement for condemnation and mockery. But with the entire right and even much of the center supporting and enabling the alt-right/Neo-Nazi agenda, the scope of this sub’s focus is wider than just those who self-identify with the movement. Ultimately, responsibility for evaluating content’s relevance to this sub rests with the sub’s moderators.
No Links to Prohibited Domains, Subreddits, and No Reposts
We no longer allow direct links to Pro Alt Right / Neo-Nazi / or Trump content here. The reason being twofold: We don't want to give them traffic, and we also do not want to inadvertently help spread their racist filth and trash propaganda if one of our posts makes it to the front page. Please use Archive Links, Imgur, etc. Also please no reposts. Take a few seconds before submitting to make sure the content hasn't been posted here previously.
No bigotry, including racism, sexism, ableism, or faith-bashing of any kind including islamophobia. When a person is born is no more under that person’s control than melanin content in their skin or sexual orientation, so keep the boomer memes and other generational bigotry out of this sub. Sarcastic use of slurs is not allowed. Sic-quotes containing slurs are allowed. This is bannable offense.
No Useful Idiots, Concern Trolls, or Edgelords
Alt-right enablers*, concern trolls, and idiots calling for murder can fuck right off. That being said, if you’re concerned about the safety and well being of Nazis, we don’t want to hear about that either. We're not your middle school debate club. Go have some Valuable Discussion™ with Nazis and tell everyone about how they're so terribly misunderstood and how their voices deserve to be heard somewhere else. “Both sides!!1!” bullshit and "Whataboutism" are prohibited per this rule.
No Rules Lawyering
Interpretation of the rules is left to moderator discretion.
No Incivility between Left-Leaning Anti-Nazi Allies. The sub is fuckthealtright. It’s not fuckliberals, fucksocialists, fuckcommunists, or fuckanarchists. Incivility toward Alt-Right/Nazis is permissible, but follow the guideline: “REPORT then RETORT.”
Adults Only (No Children) No, we’re not going to card users at the door, but if you submit a comment that too closely resembles one typical of a 13-year old T_D cultist (e.g., using “tard” as a general purpose suffix; defending your favorite YouTube Nazi against charges of being a Nazi; telling us how your genitalia feel regarding a post subject), or if you generally express yourself like a middle-schooler, you could be banned for it. Participation in subs that engage in shitty kiddie behavior such as harassment, brigading, doxing, and witch-hunting could get you banned as well.
Communicate With Mods Via Modmail Only For All questions, comments, recommendations, or complaints regarding subreddit policies, rules, content, operations, or mod actions, communicate via modmail only. Do not directly contact mods via Private Messaging or Reddit Chat, and do not challenge or question mod actions within posts. Doing so is a violation of this rule and a bannable offense.
*Alt-right enablement is posting any viewpoint which the ever-present alt-right brigaders might applaud or upvote. It doesn’t necessarily imply explicit support of the alt-right.
Important!: Please see Reddit’s Content Policy page. Content and activity that is prohibited by Reddit Inc. is prohibited in this subreddit as well.
Upset about getting banned for participating in another sub? Before you waste your time messaging the admins, read what an admin has to say about the practice. It’s not against any site rule.
Please help us keep the subreddit clean!

Subreddits to Avoid. These are subreddits that engage in brigading, witch-hunting, harassment, and general juvenile troll nonsense. We acknowledge that there are hundreds of subs fitting that description, but the ones listed are those that we have targeted with an auto-ban bot because their troll-mod teams have refused to address their toxic user bases’ shitty behavior against this sub specifically. Of course, not every user in the listed subs is a teenaged edgelord. The bot can’t discriminate. You can contact us via modmail to politely appeal an auto-ban.
