Milo Posts Racist Rant By Extremist Richard Spencer

Vice News reports:

Richard Spencer, the white nationalist who garnered national attention for wearing three-piece suits instead of a robe and hood — and for getting punched in the face — has been caught on tape apparently shouting anti-Semitic and racist slurs.

Fellow alt-right figure Milo Yiannopoulos — an ex-pal of Spencer — released the audio on YouTube, claiming it was recorded in the summer of 2017, not long after the deadly Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville that he organized. The audio is disturbing, with the man purported to be Spencer yelling the anti-Semitic slur “kike” and saying his ancestors “fucking enslaved those pieces of shit.”

Milo has fashioned himself as a provocative advocate for free speech, but has a history with Nazism. There’s video of him performing karaoke as people give the Nazi salute and his online passwords were revealed to contain deep-cut references to anti-Semitism and Nazism.

It’s not known what prompted the falling out between Milo and Spencer, but Milo has recently bemoaned his supposedly dire financial situation so this could just be a desperation move to get back in the headlines.

That said, the audio is startling, even knowing in advance that it’s Richard Spencer, whose name is trending at #1 on Twitter at this writing.
