In a 24 minute video Richard Spencer questions whether to continue his college speaking tour.
This youtube comment explains the issue if you prefer not to invest 24 minutes of listening time. Comment by Cojax Gormacules:
Richard, If I could make one suggestion- these public events cause a lot of legal troubles for our guys. I think we should do a moratorium on public rallies until such time as we have the infrastructure to handle that. Antifa has paid organizers, lawyers on board who will work for free to get them out of jail when they get arrested, and safety nets for their guys. We don’t have any of that. We also don’t have the good will of the local residents. I think it would be best to do somewhat like casapound does, do community service events to get the good will of people, and then we can set up shop in that area and do rallies and the locals will JOIN IN. We can’t keep running into these college campuses, lose more of our guys because they’re in the monkey cage, and get bad press for no return. Let’s do an alt right/NPI soup kitchen. It’s better for recruiting and image than twenty college talks. I’m on D’marcus’ server if someone from NPI wants to pop in and talk, let’s get something like this going. Hail victory!
Meanwhile, the propagandists at the Daily Beast must have worked hard to put together a hatchet job that hits all the right notes.
Title: ‘Alt-Right’ Ringleader Richard Spencer: We Attract the Mentally Ill
The word “ringleader” strongly implies a criminal. Furthermore Spencer didn’t exactly say that we attract the mentally ill. That’s a clickbait headline that leaves out the important context in Spencer’s statement.
