White Nationalist Richard Spencer Reportedly Spews Hate on Leaked Audio - 2019-11-07
The audio, purportedly from Spencer, was leaked by far-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos and posted Sunday to his Telegram channel. It was ostensibly taken following the deadly 2017 "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, possibly by someone within Spencer's circle, according to the British newspaper The Guardian. On the tape, Yiannopoulos says, the voice belongs to a screaming Spencer, who uses numerous slurs against racial and religious minorities.
Yiannopoulos told Vox that he's verified with three people that Spencer's voice is on the recording and with one other person who was in the room at the time of the rant. Other white nationalists, including YouTuber Nick Fuentes, asserted on Telegram they were aware of the audio's existence before and had listened to it a few times.
