FEATURING ALAN GADZE – White supremacist leader Richard Spencer appeared victorious in the aftermath of a high-profile appearance at the University of Florida in Gainesville on Thursday. Spencer had decided to bring his message of a white ethno-state to Gainesville months ago, alarming state and city authorities, as well as the University, and putting anti-fascist activists on notice.
Thousands of Gainesville residents geared up to confront Spencer and his fascist and Nazi supporters despite the lengthy and absurd list of prohibited items that the police had released. All told the university and city was forced to spend half a million dollars of tax payers money to provide security for Spencer’s private event where he got to hand pick attendees including news reporters.
