White supremacist Richard Spencer is surprised his college tour was a total bust - 2018-03-12
It's been a tough week for Richard Spencer, a.k.a. the dapper Nazi.
Barely three dozen people attended his latest talk at Michigan State University — despite Spencer claiming that 150 tickets had been sold. Outside, white nationalists clashed with counter-protesters; police arrested 25 people, including Greg Conte, who works for Spencer's National Policy Institute (NPI) think tank.
The day after the rally, Spencer's friend Kyle Bristow, a lawyer who had called his organization, the Foundation for the Marketplace of Ideas, the "sword and shield" of the far-right movement, announced that he would no longer be working with white supremacists.
