What's with the emoticon  ???

Probably Trump and the rise of fascism will be the most memorable thing about these years. Maybe Brexit, but I'm sure it will be mostly overturned by then by some border-free crypto currency.

I agree.  And the resurgence of Christian fundamentalism and the religious right.  And all of this is a backlash against the SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex marriage in 2015 and the perceived decline of Christian culture in the west.

Will be glad when this era is history and hopefully they don't succeed in bringing too much long-term damage to America.  The general zeitgeist right now is that if America cannot be the white fundamentalist God-fearing Christian nation it supposedly was in the 1950s that the entire system should just be burned to the ground.  These are scary times.  I'm worried about both scenarios; what will happen if Republicans remain in power and Trump is re-elected and also what the right-wing response will be to the return of Democratic rule.  It could get very ugly.

How come she is #180 on Famous Birthdays?

https://www.famousbirthdays.com/people/billie-eilish.html

How come she almost has three million subscribers on YouTube?

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiGm_E4ZwYSHV3bcW1pnSeQ

Additionally, how come she has more than 20 million views on her featured video that was uploaded 2 months ago (her most viewed video has 105 million views)?

She's definitely popping up a lot more than Emo Nite.

I think the alt-right has turned out to be stronger (though I don't like using the term alt-right to describe it because it's mostly the religious, fundamentalist Christian segment of the right-wing that is responsible for the political situation we are in, all because they couldn't accept a SCOTUS ruling).  The true racist alt-right has very little power on it's own.  I consider this to be a revival of the "Moral Majority" that dominated politics in the 1980s.  It's less about race and more about being anti-gay, anti-abortion, hyper-patriotism, nationalism, and enforcing societal norms.

When most people think of the term "alt-right", they probably think of:
*White nationalism/White supremacy/Identitarianism
*The "Jewish Problem"/The "Jewish Question" - the alt-right believes in the Zionist Occupied Government conspiracy theory
*Third position ideas (usually involves combining white nationalism and antisemitism with left-wing economics) - the alt-right is very anti-capitalist
*Volkisch paganism (a racist interpretation of neopaganism) - the alt-right hates Christianity because to them, "it is corrupted by Jewish people"
*Love over fringe music genres like NSBM and fashwave
*Holocaust denial - most alt-righters deny the Holocaust
