    You can see me staring down Richard Spencer at a protest around the 36:40 mark in the documentary “White Right: Meeting the Enemy” by the incredibly talented Deeyah Khan. I’m the red-bearded guy in the Doctor Who scarf in the right of the frame. The documentary itself is utterly fantastic and probably right up the alley of anyone reading. The portion of the interview with Spencer is…telling. He comes off as an insufferable, pompous, arrogant narcissist.

    The protest outside his house that you see in the doc was a candlelight vigil organized by my mom after the deaths in Charlottesville. We were mortified to find that Spencer was living in our hometown of Old Town, Alexandria, VA – in the apartment right above a Jewish-family owned chocolate shop, as it happened! (He has since been driven south to the town of Fairfax due to issues paying his rent. Lol.)

    Anyway, at the protest, he and his cronies came out and bothered us, each wearing similarly stupid-looking sharp suits. It was real Kindergarten-level shit, too. Doing the Hitler salute, pretending there weren’t any black or young people in the crowd…it was honestly quite pathetic. I was almost disappointed. But there was a real sense of cruelty that projected from him. He might be the least compassionate person I’ve ever seen. If anyone I’ve met is a true monster, beyond redemption, I’d wager it’s him.

    I thought I’d bring it up to him that I saw him get his ass verbally handed to him at our local gym where he was spotted by a Georgetown University professor who proceeded to raise a stink at him (leading to his gym membership being revoked). Sheepishly, he asked the on-duty gym attendants, who happened to be black, for help extricating himself from the situation.

    Anyway, I’m looking forward to listening to this when I can.
