Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer banned from 26 European countries for attempting to attend pro-white rally in Poland

White Nationalist Richard Spencer has been banned from 26 European countries for five years, the Polish news site Niezalenzna reported Monday.

Spencer has been banned from the entire Schengen Area, which compromises twenty-two of the twenty-eight European Union member states, with four more legally obligated to join.

The ban followed Spencer’s attempt to visit Warsaw for racist march earlier this month.

In 2014, Spencer was banned from the Schengen Area for three years following his attempt to host a white nationalist conference in Hungary, the Southern Poverty Law Center noted.

Europe isn’t the only place Spencer has found he is unwelcome.

Last weekend, a farm in Maryland kicked out Spencer and his think tank, the National Policy Institute.

Following the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in August, both the Sofitel Hotel and the Willard Hotel in Washington, DC refused to host Spencer. In the end, Spencer held a press conference in his Old Town, Alexandria apartment.

Dozens of neighbors have complained about Spencer living in Alexandria.

Spencer had moved to Virginia after basically being run out of Whitefish, Montana, Yahoo News reported.

Governor Terry McAuliffe (D) has also made it abundantly clear that Spencer isn’t welcome in Virginia.

“You go home, you stay out of here, because we are a commonwealth that stays together,” McAuliffe stated after the murder of Heather Heyer in Charlottesville.

‘People’s lives will be lost’: Psychiatrist warns ‘sociopath’ Trump is ‘getting worse’ — and failing in coronavirus response

Published

President Donald Trump's psychological problems are getting worse and could be consequential as America faces a potential COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell on Thursday interviewed Dr. Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

"As you pointed out, Lawrence, this man is about himself. He really is not about the country, he's not about public health," Dr. Dodes said of Trump.

"Although he has already severely damaged the country by being a psychopath or sociopath -- in many ways, he's damaged democracy -- I think people's lives will be lost now," he warned. "Individual lives will be lost because of the way he's mishandling the coronavirus issue."

‘Something really rotten’: Here’s the evidence of extensive voter suppression in Georgia’s notorious 2018 election

Published

As the 2020 presidential campaign cycle grinds on, there’s renewed concern about the 21st century’s newest form of warfare: cyber-sabotage of government systems, including elections and online disinformation intended to incite unrest. But as Suppressed: The Fight to Vote, a documentary from Brave New Films, makes clear, partisan voter suppression tactics with 20th-century roots remain and can thwart multitudes of voters from changing their state’s political leaders.

The real story behind Trump’s new lawsuit against the New York Times

Published

on

Wednesday was an ominous day for freedom of the press in this country, and I want to tell you why.

You may have heard or seen that President Trump filed a libel suit against the New York Times. Perhaps you weren’t surprised: the president is known to frequently disparage the Times even as he reads it obsessively. Borrowing a page from what I’ve referred to before as a Mount Rushmore of totalitarians, Robespierre, Hitler, Stalin and Mao, Trump loves to call the press the “enemy of the people.”
