More Violence And More Arrests Plague Richard Spencer Speaking Engagement at Auburn U

Submitted by: fancylad 4 months ago in News & Politics


It's not a Richard Spencer alt-right college speaking engagement unless there's a riot that ends in arrests and bloodshed, and that's how things went down yesterday. A bunch of alt-right bros clashed with protesters clashed ending in three arrests and a bunch of broken noses. 

Auburn University had attempted to cancel the speech on Friday, but Spencer obtained a federal court order that allowed him to go ahead with the event.

"We won a major victory for the alt-right,” Spencer said of the order. "The alt-right is about being a white person, being a European in the 21st century,” Spencer continued. "There’d be no history without us."



His speech was repeatedly interrupted by protests and shouts from the crowd. Here's it is, if you're interested...

Does anyone at these collages ever go to class or do they just spend all their time running from protest to protest?

squidbush It never fails, I am always filled with regret the day after I make a douchey post like this on IAB.  Please accept my apologies.  

Besides, who am I to point out other people's typos?  I make them all the time.

The Left "We want a tolerant society but we don't want to tolerate YOU"

Gerry1of1 Yup. that's exactly the way they want it. As long as you 100% agree with them they are happy. If you disagree with them in any way, you're labeled nazi/patriarch/scum and it's now perfectly acceptable to kill you.
Soooo tolerant, aren't they?

squidbush Oh come on.  This is such a tired point.  Is this the best you can come up with to show the hypocrisy of the left?  I can see how it's tempting to fall back to this since it's so obvious, and so beautifully ironic.  But can't we at least TRY to find other examples?  

After all, a quick google search provides plenty of damning evidence showing the right doing this same kind of nonsense.  Are you suggesting that it's OK for your people to do it because Republicans don't care about tolerance?  

Anyway, I suspect these skinhead/neo-nazi/alt-righters are just baiting college kids to make this happen.  They WANT this to happen!  They thrive on the press coverage, and they LOVE how it gets people to trot out the same old, "See!?  The lefties are hypocrites too!" argument that you just did.  Congratulations.  You are one of the newest mindless automatons to join their crew.  You must be so proud.

skeeter01 Seems to me a large amount of societal ills lately can be traced back to the 24 hour news cycle and instant internet fame.

Once again it's "We believe in free speech unless you say something we don't like"

Guy is a total dickwad and his ideas are not fit for society.

Yet, he enjoys the same right to Free Speech as anyone else.  I am free to disagree with him, to argue with him and proclaim, loudly, that he is a dickwad.  I do not have the right to resort to violence to attempt to shut him up.

megrendel I think when we let these people exercise their right to free speech they make such fools of themselves people quit listening.  The attention he gets preventing his speech is just advertisement gold for him.

And the leftists have been pretty open about increasing the level of violence they are willing to employ to shut these people up.  This will not end well for anyone.
