Neo-Nazi tries crashing libertarian conference, gets kicked out

Richard Spencer is back with his latest publicity stunt:

Richard Spencer — the alt right leader who vowed “we’re not going away” after Donald Trump won the presidency, was caught leading a Nazi salute for Trump and who got punched in the face at his hero’s inauguration — was evicted from the 10th annual International Students for Liberty Conference after trying to crash its party.

“Spencer, a self-declared white nationalist who believes the U.S. is losing its white identity, had no business attending a gathering of libertarian students, and conference organizers had every right to eject him,” Robby Soave wrote in Reason Magazine. “Indeed, their decision to do so was a valid exercise of libertarian principles in action.”

Soave described how Spencer “set himself up in the bar of the hotel” in Washington D.C. where the event was being held and “attempted to host an unscheduled and unwanted conversation about his despicable views.” He was eventually confronted by libertarian pundit Jeffrey Tucker, who “confronted Spencer and made clear to the alt-right provocateur that he ‘did not belong’ at ISFLC. Some shouting ensued, and hotel staff intervened. Shortly thereafter, Spencer left.”

In characteristic libertarian fashion, Soave pointed out that “the Marriott Wardman hotel is private property, and should enjoy the absolute right to evict irksome and unwelcome guests from its premises.”

Of course, timing is everything, and Spencer was overshadowed by fellow high-profile racist Milo Yiannopoulos’s spectacular crash-and-burn.

    Nazism is both a dangerous and failed ideology, it belongs at the bottom of history’s ash heap. Nazi’s need to be silenced by any means possible, up to and including violence as a last resort. If they ever get real power, they’ll kill all of us.

      “Nazi’s need to be silenced by any means possible”
      They don’t seem to understand the historical significance of the years 1865 or 1945.

        We all know it has nothing to do with the ideologies of the Nazi party or the Confederacy. All these types know is hate and they recognize that in those two groups and they can identify with it because it puts white males at the top of the pyramid.

          You’re right, Suzanne. It’s about hate and having the right to control others’ lives.

          somewhat but I believe they hate themselves more. People of no self esteem always need someone or something to blame for their own total ineffectualness.

    It is SOOOO sad that the Preppy Nazi being such a victim of intolerance (heh) was eclipsed by the descent of the Flaming Gasbag, the Hateful Homosexual Hindenburg – MILO!

    And, yes, it’s especially rich that he was eclipsed by a furriner!

    people who think like this pond scum are suffering from a disease and should be quarantined – it is not free speech. It is the dissemination of a cancer that has no place in the human condition. Erase it the same way Salk did it.
