Alt-Right jerk, Richard Spencer, who rose to fame for being a racist, has made no secret that he’s proud of his European heritage. The feeling, however, is not mutual.
Reportedly, Richard Spencer has been banned for five years from 26 European Union countries, which include Germany, France Italy, Poland, Hungary, Spain, and Sweden, among others.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has reported that the Polish Interior Ministry requested to block Richard Spencer from Europe after multiple attempts have been made by Spencer to visit Poland for an Independence Day march that took place in Warsaw earlier this month. Spencer also made plans to visit with several Polish nationalist groups around the country.
The “Never Again” Association, one of the leading anti-racism groups in Poland, held protests and were able to sway the Polish government to let Richard Spencer know that, should he decide to come, he was not welcome. That action resulted in Spencer cancelling his own trip. But the people of Poland weren’t satisfied and the government decided to go ahead and issue a European ban.
Here are some of the best reactions to the news that the Alt-Right racist, who gloats about his European background, has been banned from several European countries:
During a huge White Nationalist/White Supremacist rally in protest of the removal of a General Lee Confederate monument, Spencer helped incite thousands. Protesters clashed with counter protesters, resulting in the death of Heather Heyer, a 32 year old woman marching against racism. The night before violence took over, Richard Spencer lead a band of idiots wearing khaki pants and wielding tiki torches in a bizarrely modernized version of the KKK in the 1960’s.
You can watch a video of the horrifically creepy modern day klan rally in the video below:
Violence is rarely the answer, but a large number of people who detest racism have had a laugh watching this video interview, during which Spencer is punched squarely in the face.
So far, somehow, Spencer has managed not to be banned from social media, but recently Twitter revoked his verified status.
Verified no more! Is it not okay to be proudly White? 🤷🏻♂️
