Say hello to Richard Spencer. This asshole coined the term “alt-right,” which the media now uses for some very extremist parts of the Republican party. Now, he is thinking of running for Congress.
His state of Montana only has one Congressional seat, which is currently held by Rep. Ryan Zinke (R). If Zinke accepts President-elect Trump’s nomination for Secretary of the Treasury, then his seat will be vacant.
Spencer is only thinking about running at the moment, but thinking of him in Congress scares the shit out of me.
“If I did this, it would not be some eccentric campaign that no one talks about and is a footnote to history. It would become a major conversation around the country… just because of my profile in the alt-right. Again, I would only do it to win it.”
This particular quote also scares the shit out of me:
“America was until this past generation a white country designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us.”
No, Mr Spencer, this is not a “white country.” We are a country of many races, creeds, etc. There are also women here as well, but I guess he doesn’t count us.
