Pretty much admitting he's been LARPing this whole time. If he was serious, he'd be excited that his movement is getting more violent and insurrectionary. But he's squeamish about violence, which is a good thing.

Spencer said the leftwing coalition known as Antifa has made attending his speeches too dangerous, and not “fun” by intimidating his supporters and shouting down his lectures.

Spencer supports the creation of a society run by white people in the United States, and routinely attacks diversity as an assault on the white race. Antifa members argue racist voices should be aggressively countered, and make no apologies for their actions.

“When they become violent clashes and pitched battles, they aren’t fun," Spencer said. "I don’t inspire any kind of violence ... until the situation changes, we are up a creek without a paddle.”

Spencer’s announcement, made via Twitter and a lengthy YouTube video this weekend, comes just days after violent clashes between his supporters and 500 counter-protesters at Michigan State University.

Teachers fire back at DeVos for using stock photo in claim about classrooms' structure

  Teachers fire back at DeVos for using stock photo in claim about classrooms' structure Teachers have hit back at Education Secretary Betsy DeVos after she used stock photos to make a claim about how classrooms in public schools are currently structured. DeVos tweeted an image of an older classroom next to what appears to be a stock photo of a current classroom, with the caption, "Does this look familiar?"

extended his right arm with a glass to toast that victory.[68] Spencer later defended their conduct The speech, which was Spencer 's first public appearance after the Charlottesville rally , was " Alt - right leader Richard Spencer worries getting punched will become 'meme to end all memes'".

White Nationalist Richard Spencer ’s tiki torch rallies in Charlottesville, Virginia, and his distant dream of forming a white ethnostate steal headlines, but his views about women—that their role in politics be shrunk down to a barely visible place that would be unrecognizable to almost anyone in modern.

Spencer won a legal victory to speak at MSU but only about 20 people attended his speech, authorities said. Outside, both sides clashed and police arrested about 20 people as counter-protesters screamed "punch a Nazi in the face!" and "Nazis go home."

White nationalists have inserted themselves into the mainstream in part by putting away the KKK robes and Nazi uniforms of the past and cloaking themselves in a free-speech movement. Critics accuse white nationalists of being white supremacists in disguise.

Antifa, which stands for “anti fascist,” is a loosely organized coalition that argues the alt-right and white nationalists are no more than Nazis who must be met with overwhelming opposition.

Supporters on both sides have showed up at rallies ready to do battle, armed with sticks, guns and riot gear, including shields.

In a statement posted to its website, the Torch Antifa network said directly confronting bigotry is its key mission: "Anti-racists and antifascists have an obligation to deny a platform to bigots so that they can’t spread their message and recruit. We believe in being proactive when it comes to fascist violence, which means confronting fascist organizing before they have a chance to put their ideas into action, and taking fascist threats seriously."

In his video announcement, Spencer complained that Michigan police didn’t do enough to ensure his audience could safely reach the venue, a trend he said has been escalating. Spencer leapt into the public eye during the 2016 presidential campaign as an "alt-right" leader in part by his willingness to publicly discuss and debate "white pride." While he eschews violence personally, his critics note there’s an inevitably violent conclusion to the creation of a whites-only country from eliminating minorities and trying to force them to leave.

The Southern Poverty Law Center, one of the country’s oldest anti-hate groups, said it’s “preposterous” that Spencer was surprised by the vehement opposition he faces.

“He wanted that reaction,” spokesman Ryan Lenz said. “He said he wanted to go into the belly of the beast. And when the violence presented itself ... Spencer chose to pick up on that and re-craft the message.”

Spencer has been banned from visiting large portions of Europe and Great Britain by government officials who said his speeches fostered hatred. He spoke at the University of Florida in October after the governor declared a state of emergency due to security concerns. Spencer was also one of the featured speakers at last summer's "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Va.

That Aug. 12 rally devolved into widespread violence and turned deadly when police said "alt-right" follower James Alex Fields rammed his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19 others. Fields, charged with first-degree murder, faces up to life in prison. The organizer of that rally is now suing Charlottesville officials for refusing to let him hold an anniversary rally this summer.
