Los fundamentos ideológicos de la Alt-Right: del paleoconservadurismo a la fascistización

Palabras clave: conservadurismo, neoconservadurismo, paleoconservadurismo, fascistización, Alt-Right


El presente trabajo tiene como objetivo explorar las raíces ideológicas de la Alt-Right, el movimiento de derecha radical más importante de Estados Unidos en las últimas décadas. Para ello es necesario realizar una genealogía centrada en el rol de una serie de intelectuales que se remonte a la formulación de la ideología paleoconservadora, a su vez una reacción a la exclusión de los elementos más radicales del conservadurismo estadounidense en los años cincuenta. Estas tendencias hallan en la presidencia de Barack Obama un momento idóneo para el rearme ideológico que desemboca en un movimiento juvenil abiertamente neo-fascista que ve en la victoria de Donald Trump una ventana de oportunidad para ejercer su poder metapolítico.
