Richard Spencer Banned from Facebook

Richard believes his ban by Facebook is because the alt-right is the only anti-war voice left in America besides the libertarians and maybe a few others.

Facebook has banned the American white nationalist who popularised the term “alternative right”.

CNN: Richard Spencer Can’t Find a Lawyer to Defend Him Against Charlottesville Lawsuit

The left is out to bankrupt Richard Spencer by blaming him (and others) for the violence in Charlottesville last summer.

He’s been named as a defendant in a lawsuit brought by people who claim to have been damaged by the Unite the Right rally.

When sued, your first step is always to petition the court to dismiss the lawsuit. The plaintiffs suing Spencer have a female Jew lawyer.

You can read a pdf of Spencer’s 23 page motion to dismiss here. Skim reading it, it looks well done. You should read it to deepen your understanding of how lawsuits play out. I think you’ll find it rewarding.

Excerpt from CNN

Richard Spencer can’t find a lawyer.

The white nationalist and progenitor of the “alt-right” movement submitted a motion to dismiss a federal lawsuit against him and other leaders involved in August’s deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Maryland Teacher Fired for Alt-Right Beliefs

GREG CONTE, AKA GREGORY RITTER. FIRED.

Greg Conte, an associate of Richard Spencer, has been fired by a Catholic high school in Maryland. If he had worked for a public school, his firing for his beliefs would be problematic, but a private employer generally has the freedom to hire and fire at will.

First, the story, then a follow-up in which Conte expresses his belief that diversity doesn’t work.

Jewish Forward

A substitute teacher at a Maryland girls’ school was fired for his involvement with a prominent white nationalist think-tank in the “alt-right.”

Greg Conte, a substitute teacher and sports coach at the Academy of the Holy Cross, was fired this fall, but school officials only sent a letter explaining the move to families this month, according to Fox 5 of Washington, D.C.,.

Conte, who goes by Gregory Ritter on Twitter, appears to work for white nationalist Richard Spencer’s National Policy Institute. He reportedly attended the the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia last year.

Richard Spencer Takes Leading Role in Formation of New Effort to Unite the Alt-Right

Richard Spencer is keeping his name in the news. This time through the creation of a new umbrella group for pro-white organizations. He calls it Operation Homeland.

Jewish Forward

A group of “alt-right” white nationalist activists are banding together to form a new organization called Operation Homeland — making a bid to both further professionalize their movement and align themselves with the international “Identitarian” movement, a style of white nationalism with roots in the European far-right.

Richard Spencer, one of the country’s foremost white nationalists, is organizing the project.

Richard Spencer Turns from Race to Anti-Capitalist Economics

RICHARD SPENCER. NOT A FAN OF CONSERVATIVE ECONOMICS.

Richard Spencer held an NPI (National Policy Institute) Conference at a Maryland winery he had rented for November 19. As has been widely reported, apparently the owners of the venue stopped the conference before it could be concluded and demanded that everyone leave.

A leftist reporter infiltrated the conference and reports what he saw and heard. What should be clear from the article is that the alt-right is not traditional conservatism, with its pro-big business bias.

Excerpt from The Nation

When we finally got to the winery that Spencer’s National Policy Institute had booked, Mike Enoch of the Daily Shoah podcast, who promulgated the slur “dindu nuffins” for African Americans, was holding forth on the horrors of “corporate neoliberalism.”

MIKE ENOCH.

Although I’m not convinced that the alt-right is a psyop designed to control and suppress a true white nationalist mass movement, it is wise to be suspicious of Spencer, et. al.

According to their own words, the alt-right leadership is seeking an alliance with the far left, with hostility toward free-market economics as the glue that would hold the two sides together.

Like I said, be skeptical.

Richard Spencer Banned from 26 European Countries

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.

Telesurtv.net

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.”

Picking up more details from IBTimes

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.

Twitter Bans and Removes Verified Status of Richard Spencer, Other Defenders of the White Race

First,commenter Wullfe let us know that the Daily Stormer was kicked out of Western Samoa and is now to be found at DailyStormer.hk. I assume that’s a Hong Kong web address.

Now on to Twitter. As far as I know Microchip has given up on Twitter. I haven’t seen him there in around a month, since his last ban. He’s on Gab, but I’ve never had any luck getting an account there. I’ll have to try again.

Baked Alaska was banned from Twitter on Wednesday, while Richard Spencer has had his verification stripped.

BAKED ALASKA, BANNED.

Twitter is going to lose its relevance sooner or later. And most likely Spencer will join Baked Alaska in being banned.

The Daily Beast

Twitter began banning and removing verified check marks, which were previously handed out to public figures to prove their authenticity, from white supremacist accounts as it updated the rules to its verification program on Wednesday.

White supremacists Richard Spencer and Charlottesville “Unite The Right” protest creator Jason Kessler had their verified statuses revoked on Wednesday.

The verified check mark was meant to denote “that an account of public interest is authentic,” the company said in a series of tweets on Wednesday, but that “verification has long been perceived as an endorsement.”

“This perception became worse when we opened up verification for public submissions and verified people who we in no way endorse,” a company spokesperson tweeted.

Users can now lose their blue checkmarks for “inciting or engaging in harassment of others,” “promoting hate and/or violence against, or directly attacking or threatening other people on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, religious affiliation, age, disability, or disease,” supporting people who promote those ideas, and a slew of other reasons.

The changes come exactly one week after a Daily Beast story showed that Kessler, who had called the death of anti-racist protester Heather Heyer in Charlottesville “payback time,” had been verified by Twitter. The company suspended its verification practices the next day.

“We should’ve communicated faster on this [yesterday]: our agents have been following our verification policy correctly, but we realized some time ago the system is broken and needs to be reconsidered,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey wrote last week. “And we failed by not doing anything about it. Working now to fix faster.”

Earlier on Wednesday, Tim Gionet, a far right former BuzzFeed employee who went by the username @BakedAlaska, was banned from Twitter. In his last tweets, he pushed his followers to reinstate an account that was banned from Twitter for, he claimed, “saying muslim immigrants are adding to the rape culture.”

When reached for comment on Gionet’s suspension, a company spokesperson pointed The Daily Beast to its “hateful conduct policy,” specifically the section that bans “repeated and/or or non-consensual slurs, epithets, racist and sexist tropes, or other content that degrades someone.”

Far-right agitator Milo Yiannopoulos’ blue checkmark was removed last January before he was kicked off Twitter, stirring outrage among alt-right and far-right communities. Some fans of Yiannopoulos began flocking to alternative platforms, like alt-right Twitter knockoff Gab or the chat service Discord.

In July 2016 Twitter allowed anyone to request verification via an online form, a move that appears to have overwhelmed the review process. Twitter ended up verifying accounts that it “in no way endorse(s),” the company said.

Until now, Twitter has claimed that verification is neutral and simply a way to verify a person’s primary brand handle or identity. However, verified users have long been seen as first-class citizens on the platform. Verified users have access to more robust filters and their tweets and accounts are more likely to be surfaced in search as well as people’s @ mentions.

Bottom line: If you’re verified on Twitter, you’re politically correct.
