BREAKING: Richard Spencer Kicked Out of ISFLC ’17 After Jeffrey Tucker Confrontation

LISTEN TO TLR’S LATEST PODCAST:


by Micah J. Fleck

Just moments ago, at the latest International Students for Liberty Conference, White Nationalist and Alt-Right leader Richard Spencer had a heated confrontation with FEE content director Jeffrey Tucker after the former had set up an impromptu booth in a dining hall at the hotel venue.

For close to an hour prior, Spencer sat and spoke with passerby as they questioned his being at the libertarian event and his societal views at large. Spencer at various points supported the idea of using state force to protect the rightful citizens of his ideal utopia from “outsiders,” as well as spoke very cynically and distrustfully of multiculturalism — something he apparently thinks degrades culture and is therefore wary of.

Various attendees to the conference publicly shared or posted about the happening on Facebook and other social media, showing their unease.

Eventually, Tucker entered the scene and immediately berated Spencer. “Fascists are not welcome at an anti-fascist conference!” He shouted. This was met with cheers from those standing around the scene. “Libertarianism is about human dignity, liberty for all, and not about fascism!” Soon, Spencer and Tucker were shouting at each other in a heated back-and-forth, and as more and more people crowded around, security was ultimately called. Spencer was then booted out of the venue.

The initial hour-long discussion, as well as the confrontation with Tucker, which were both captured via nearby bystanders streaming to Facebook. can be seen below.

    Can one recognize the follies of multiculturalism without being a fetishist for whiteness?

    Yes, going back to White people having sovereignty and nations of their own before the insanity of multiculturalism is “a fetishist for whiteness”. I like to refer to it simply as “normal”.

    Libertarians obviously have no confidence that their ideas will win out in the marketplace of ideas. And, frankly, they shouldn’t.
