If you live in Europe and you had a curiosity about issues revolving around White Identity and White Nationalism, then your goose is cooked.
Your governments have banned Richard Spencer from the European continent. Yes, I suppose that you can still read his writings or watch his youtube videos, at least for now, but there’s nothing like meeting a thinker and picking his brain.
The following news reports are written in the biased, modern style. Spencer is not exactly a “white supremacist,” as the press claims.
One of the most prominent figures in the U.S. white supremacist movement has been banned from entering 26 European countries for the next five years, it has been reported by Polish State News Agency, PAP.
Richard Spencer, head of Virginia-based think tank the National Policy Institute (NPI), is credited as among those responsible for popularizing the term “Alt-Right,” in which racist, anti-immigrant and anti-semitic sentiments converge.
Responding to the ban, which covers the entire Schengen Area, Spencer told Associated Press: “I’m being treated like a criminal by the Polish government. It’s just insane. I haven’t done anything. What are they accusing me of?”
The ban follows comments made last month by Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski, who described Spencer as someone “who defames what happened during World War II, defames the Holocaust. He should not appear publicly, and especially not in Poland.”
Poland is no stranger to white supremacists. Earlier this month, it played host to a rally of 60,000 Europeans chanting slogans such as “White Europe” and “We Want God,” the latter in reference to a hymn cited by U.S. President Donald Trump during his visit to Warsaw.
On prominent display throughout was the Falanga symbol: a hand holding a sword, the image dates back to the Polish nationalist movement of the 1930s and remains popular with the right wing of today.
Spencer is a staunch advocate of an Aryan homeland for what he describes as a “dispossessed” white race, and has called for “peaceful ethnic cleansing” in order to halt the “deconstruction” of European culture.
“Our dream is a new society, an ethno-state that would be a gathering point for all Europeans,” he has been quoted as saying. “It would be a new society based on very different ideals than, say, the Declaration of Independence.”

Besides Poland, the 26 Schengen countries also include France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden.
A source close to the ministry confirmed to the Associated Press that the ban has taken effect.
This is not the first time that Spencer has been banned from the Schengen Zone. In 2014, he was banned from entering the 26 countries for three years after he was arrested in Hungary, where he was planning to host a white nationalist conference.
According to reports, a weekend conference in a farm in Maryland organized by Spencer’s think tank was shut down midway after the owner found he was involved. Following the ‘Unite the Right’ rally in August, both Sofitel Hotel and Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. refused to host Spencer.
His views have landed him in trouble across the Atlantic in Europe too. A far-right event in Poland in 2015 was cancelled after progressive, anti-racist groups protested to his presence at the gathering.
Earlier this month, Spencer had canceled his plans to travel to Poland for a far-right conference in Warsaw after seeing reports the government was threatening to keep him out of the country.
“It just didn’t feel like it was worth it,” he said.
You may recall that Spencer was un-verified by Twitter last week. He says he may give up Twitter. The more that the establishment fights to silence his very reasonable voice, the more likely it is that violent extremists will become the leaders of a pro-white movement of some kind.
That may be what the Jewish interests have in mind. The existence of a violent, terrorist white identity movement would be easier to kill off than the current movement.
