I don't click links on my phone, who is he and what's the speech about?

Not really sure why folks protest people speaking, personally I find it better to ignore the folks I don't like.

Good.
You want free speech? Go to Walmart. Just keep it off of campus.

That makes no sense. A public institution like a state college needs to accommodate free speech while a private one like Walmart doesn't.

Richard Spencer is a white nationalist and central figure in the "Alt-Right."

Thank you.

Like I said, ignore the idiot. It's really that simple!

I keep hoping he goes to south Chicago or Detroit. Something tells me he won't.

That being said there will come a point when he stops the operation of a university which is also a business. It will be a strange point to debate when that happens. I don't know what the answer to that will be.

I wish they could dig him up saying he has an intention to create a riot.

Or that people simply ignore him.

But it seems he is a good at what he does for who ever that is.

Remember the days when no one really gave these morons any time of day?

The media sure does go out of it's way nowadays to highlight the movings of these once far fringe elements of society, and it's lapped up in gulps.

Ever ask yourself why that may be?

I'll never really understand why people don't want Richard Spencer to speak anyway.

1. Protesting him only gives him more notoriety.

2. Protesting him makes wingnuts who don't understand what he's about feel sympathetic to him.

3. The more he talks, the more he exposes the toxic nature of alt-right ideology.

4. Ironically, bigots like Richard Spencer are among the only people on the right who aren't afraid to acknowledge the historical reality of systemic racism in the US. He doesn't fuss around with asinine apologetics, he just comes right and says things like that immigration laws originated to keep America white.

I always thought laughing at him and maybe mocking him with vulgar puppets would be a fun way to go.

But monster energy drinks have really messed things up for college kids today.

"I keep hoping he goes to south Chicago or Detroit. Something tells me he won't."

Why is that?

Are you hoping or wanting violence to happen to him?

Why?
I'm not a believer in this guys message, but he has every right to say it.

Free speech doesn't equate to violence.

If a riot was to occur, it's not this man's fault, but the fault of the idiots who turn to violence and hurt others and destroy property. Which then make them criminals.

When BLM is allowed to spout off and threaten and attack white people, people turn their heads.

So I wish this guy would find a hobby, but he is speaking to people, which he should be able to do, without the threat of violence.

I'm cool with this...SKIN is an ORGAN it means NOTHING symbolically to me whatso ever,I am handicapped in the brain and have known NO privilege beyond what being identified as "Weird" affords a man.
DIDN'T get much food for it,I know of no activist groups and I had to handle it by myself.
I don't hold ANYONE else at fault ,it just is...like a man SHOULD think on these things.

As long as Spencer doesn't call for violence or mass murder, I say let him be.

first time im hearing of this guy... good or bad.

i thought that pedophile and eccentric gay boy was the man of the hour? did his stocks go down a bit, has he made enough money at the expense of his followers already that he is passing the torch to keep the interest flowing...

can knock a good businessman though. if getting people riled up was my source of income, id keep the scandalous rants coming.

Wouldn't it be great if he went to his speaking engagement and walked into an empty room?

Why do the media give these morons such a huge platform to speak garbage?

If no one opposing him showed up, I think there might be 2 or 3 people that would show up to hear him speak.... at least I hope that he would garner no more than that.
