There been a spat of fake news concerning so called right wing elements in the furry fandom . The report was constructed around a few member and tweets instead of serious investigative journalism. I dare say Motherbod has much credibility as Alt-Right and that is not saying much for ether. There no corresponding report in establish news media or mention of alt-furries in overtly White Supremacist sites like Stormfront.
Controversial interest in social groups such as Nazis, and Soviets culture exist in both furry and anime fandoms for years. While using the aesthetics nether group was politically National Socialist, Communist or racist. I only meet one German neo Nazi who happened to be a fur in my ten years in the fandom. Only now is has become an issue by the obsessive anti -Trump rhetoric by the left. This does not mean furry fandom being invaded by fascist or communist.
More disruptive to the fandom is the antifascist witch hunts and calls for protest by both Patch at Dogpatch Press and Antifa.
I do not see co-opting the fandom for one’s political cause has any redeeming value in the fandom. In this time of hate including punch out those who you disagree with, and calling for overthrow of our government, the fandom has been an island of tolerance when an LGBT counselor and chairman of RAin, and a Libertarian, Conservative Reformed Christian who is a former Republican and former support of the Religious Right, can have a civilized discussion about fury fandom even though our views at polar opposite.
I want it to stay that way.
