Pro-Nazi Richard Spencer Said "Depeche Mode Is The Official Band Of The Alt-Right"

Submitted by: rumham 2 months ago in News & Politics


In a brief Q&A, minutes before he was kicked off of the premises of this weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), Richard Spencer -- self-proclaimed white nationalist and the racist with the most punchable face in America -- was asked if he likes "rock music."




According to New York Magazine's Nuzzi tweet, a fellow journalist asked Spencer if he liked rock music. His response was "Depeche Mode is the official band of the alt-right."

Gah!

Unfortunately, Spencer doesn't know anything about Depeche Mode. In a November 2016 press conference for their new album (Spirit), lead singer Dave Gahan compared Trump to Hitler as well as bashing Brexit.

Within hours of Spencer's claim hit the internet, a spokesperson for Depeche Mode said, "That’s pretty ridiculous. Depeche Mode has no ties to Richard Spencer or the alt right and does not support the alt right movement."

irk I'm sure you can find his home address from his IAB screen name. It should be easy to trace the IP address etc.
