Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer went into a racist rage after the death of Heather Heyer: Leaked audio

Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer went into a racist rage after the death of Heather Heyer: Leaked audio
Richard Spencer.

In January 2017, Richard Spencer gained fame as a result of a number of articles highlighting him as the new, “dapper” face of white nationalism. Then, there was the infamous incident at a Trump inauguration protest in which he was punched in the face during a live television interview.

In August 2017, Richard Spencer was one of the leaders of the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville where Heather Heyer was killed, and many others seriously injured, after one of Spencer’s buddies drove into a crowd of anti-Nazi protesters. Spencer was apparently furious about the negative coverage of their violent Nazi rally and now his fellow alt-right pal (or former pal) Milo Yiannopoulos has leaked audio on YouTube, which Yiannopoulos says is Spencer in a racist rage, recorded after the rally. For what it’s worth, YouTube is one of the only social media platforms that hasn’t banned Yiannopoulous. He was permanently banned from Twitter after a racist attack on comedian Leslie Jones..

This is definitely NSFW as it contains explicit and racist language.

When you hear that audio, recall Donald Trump, President of the United States, defending these people, calling them “very fine people.” Sickening.
