I guess you could say Richard Spencer is ‘alt’ right– waaaaay around-the-horn that is. The dapperly dressed millennial, a white nationalist, has outed himself as a socliast in a new movie.
In Dinesh D’Souza’s new documentary about racism in America, “Death of a Nation,” the writer, author and documentarian sits down with Spencer and asks him what he believes:
Spencer tells D’Souza:
“No individual has a right, outside a collective community. You have rights, not eternally, or given by God or nature. You have them because you are a part of this community. Ultimately the state gives those rights to you.”
Said no conservative ever.
Oh, and his two favorite presidents are Democrats.
The party of the KKK founder Nathan Bedford Forrest
The party of Jim Crow.
The party of black codes.
The party of the governor who stood in the school house door.
The party of 1894 Repeal Act.
The party of Planned Parenthood (which kills 60% of black babies)
The party against 40 Acres and a Mule.
The Democratic Party, founded by President Andrew Jackson, killed and/or fought against the following legislation:
Civil Rights Act 1866
Reconstruction Act of 1867
Freedman Bureau Extension Act of 1866
Enforcement Act of 1870
Force Act of 1871
Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871
Civil Rights Act of 1875
Civil Rights Act of 1957
Civil Rights Act of 1960
And during the 60’s many Democrats fought hard to defeat the
1964 Civil Rights Act
1965 Voting Rights Acts
1972 Equal Employment Opportunity Act
It looks like Richard Spencer fits right in.
And, before you reflexively bock, but, but, but the “Southern Strategy”…
I would really like to know where the rational voters of Seattle were the day this crack pot made it into city government. Not only does councilwoman Kshama Sawant call business people and cops “criminals,” she is now calling on Boeing machinist union members to “[T]ake over the factor[y], and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine.” It’s all in the name of “democracy” you know.
According to Heraldnet.com, local union members and local union leadership were shut out of the negotiations entirely.
By all accounts, IAM leadership in Washington, D.C., and Boeing representatives kept leaders of Seattle-based District 751 in the dark about the contract talks before presenting the porposal [sic] to them less than two weeks ago. The offer called for major concessions — including trading pensions for 401(k) plans and increasing health care costs — in exchange for placing 777X final assembly in Everett and a $10,000 signing bonus, among other promises.
When the company told the machinists to go pound sand, the socialist councilwoman sprang into action to ‘save’ the jobs the union scuttled. She proposed workers take over the Everett plant and “re-tool the machines to produce mass transit like buses, instead of destructive, you know, war machines.” Here’s her latest via KIRO TV,
Seattle City Councilmember-elect Kshama Sawant spoke to supporters of Boeing’s machinists during a rally in Seattle.

Seattle City Councilmember-elect Kshama Sawant told Boeing machinists her idea of a radical option, should their jobs be moved out of state
“The workers should take over the factories, and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” Sawant announced to a cheering crowd of union supporters in Seattle’s Westlake Park Monday night.
This week, Sawant became Seattle’s first elected Socialist council member. She ran on a platform of anti-capitalism, workers’ rights, and a $15 per-hour minimum wage for Seattle workers.
On Monday night, she spoke to supporters of Boeing Machinists, six days after they rejected a contract guaranteeing jobs in Everett building the new 777X airliner for eight years, in exchange for new workers giving up their guaranteed company pensions.
Now Boeing is threatening to take those jobs to other states. “That will be nothing short of economic terrorism because it’s going to devastate the state’s economy,” she said.
Sawant is calling for machinists to literally take-possession of the Everett airplane-building factory, if Boeing moves out. She calls that “democratic ownership.”
“The only response we can have if Boeing executives do not agree to keep the plant here is for the machinists to say the machines are here, the workers are here, we will do the job, we don’t need the executives. The executives don’t do the work, the machinists do,” she said.
Sawant says after workers “take-over” the Everett Boeing plant; they could build things everyone can use.
“We can re-tool the machines to produce mass transit like buses, instead of destructive, you know, war machines,” she told KIRO 7.
Sawant says she was referring to “drones” when speaking of war machines. Still, she says even as they work on the lines, building airplanes daily, she believes Boeing workers are under siege.
“Workers have to realize, they have more power than they think,” she said.
