Definition of alt-light and alt-right

In a video he made for therebel.media, Gavin defined the alt-right as a movement that is "too far",[4] that thinks "Jews have an undue influence" and that thinks "whites are what's important", "not necessarily Western values".[5] The alt-light and alt-right have something in common, he says: "Both sides have in common Western chauvinism, they're not embarrassed about whiteness or whatever, they don't think diversity is the be all and end all".[6]

Relationship with and view of Richard Spencer

Although Gavin calls Richard Spencer "the head of the snake", he wrote in October 2016 that he knows Richard and that Richard got him a job at "Taki's Magazine".[7] Gavin says he likes Richard and likes debating and arguing with him and thinks "you should too if you have a problem".[8]
