Remember way, way back three whole years ago, when the media was losing its sh*t because alt-right members were wearing fancy suits, and they were describing folks like Richard Spencer as someone who might recall Ryan Gosling? The alt-right was fancy and f*ck and all shiny and professional, and the media thought it was a good idea to normalize them with puff pieces about what good fancy American capitalists they are!
Then there was Charlottesville, where all the kids in polo shirts and tiki torches started chanting, “Jews will not replace us,” and some people finally got the message that — suit or no suit — these people are still f**king Nazis.
Everybody got that message, right? Wait, what’s that? CNN put Richard Spencer on the air just four months ago? I hope he wore a real nice suit because if he strapped Giorgio Armani himself over his body, it would not obscure what should have been obvious to everyone (ahem), which is that Richard Spencer is a goddamn Nazi.
Not that any of you needed any more proof, but here’s Richard Spencer ranting after the death of Heather Heyer. The language here is super NSFW. You probably don’t want to play it at work, because HR is not going to understand.
Milo just uploaded leaked audio of Richard Spencer reacting to the death of Heather Heyer and the negative press it did to his movement.— BAILEY, THE LIBTARDTARIAN 🃏 (@atheist_cvnt) November 4, 2019
Just in case there was any question of the so-called "dapper white nationalist" being a raged fuelled hateful monster.

If you don’t want to listen, just imagine a raving lunatic with spittle flying out of his mouth screaming the following:
“We are coming back here like a hundred fucking times,” Spencer says in the video. “I am so mad. I am so mad at these fucking people. They don’t do this to fucking me. We’re going to ritualistically humiliate them. I am coming back here every fucking weekend if I have to. Like this is never over! I win! They fucking lose!”
“That’s how the world fucking works. Little fucking k**es. They get ruled by people like me. Little fucking octaroons. I rule the fucking world. Those pieces of shit get ruled by people like me. They look up and see a face like mine looking down at them. That’s how the fucking world works. We are going to destroy this fucking town.”
The audio leak comes from a buddy of Richard Spencer, Milo Yiannopoulos, who I can only assume is trying to combat irrelevancy and bankruptcy by throwing his fellow Nazi friends under the bus.
None of this is new, of course, because we went through this in 2017 when someone punched Spencer a bunch of people asked, “Is It OK to punch a Nazi?” even though, at the time, we’d already seen videos like this:
Spencer, by the way, is close pals with Jack Posobiec, a right-wing conspiracy theorist who is frequently retweeted by the President, just so you understand that it’s all the same melting pot of hate.
Spencer still has a Twitter account as of this writing (although, Twitter is starting to delete recordings of the audio from the site).
