‘Time for me to lawyer up’: Alt-right leader Richard Spencer begs for money to pay his legal bills

Published

White Nationalist Richard Spencer is begging for money to hire an attorney as his legal and financial woes continue to grow.

Spencer is asking for $25,000 to defend himself in a federal lawsuit over the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Right Wing Watch reported.

“I am under attack and I need your help,” Spencer said in a public appeal. “Some of the biggest and baddest law firms in the United States are suing me, along with some other prominent figures, in civil court.”

Spencer recently had a falling out with his longtime lawyer, Kyle Bristow.

“This case is a conspiracy theory in the truest sense of that term,” he argued. “This is a mockery of justice.”

“Put simply, they want to shut me — and all of us — down,” Spencer claimed.

He argued the goal of the lawsuit is to “take down the alt-right’s most prominent spokesman, that is me.”

“It is now time for me to lawyer up,” he said in a public YouTube video.

Spencer, who has been banned from 26 countries, has been punched on the street for his views.

In October, three men were arrested for attempted homicide following a Spencer speech in Gainsville, Florida. Spencer’s National Policy Institute bounced a $10,564 check to the University of Florida to rent the auditorium for his speech.

White security guard pulls gun on black on-duty sheriff’s deputy because he was armed

Published

WTVG reported that a white security officer at the IRS building in Toledo, Ohio, is facing a charge for aggravated menacing after he pulled his gun on Alan Gaston, a black San Lucas County sheriff's deputy.

The reason? Gaston was armed.

He was also, however, clearly in uniform with his badge visible, indicating him as an on-duty law enforcement officer. The guard drew his weapon after Gaston told him he couldn't leave his sidearm outside the premises.

"Basically preparing myself to be shot at that moment. Bracing for a shot in my back," said Gaston, who works as a defense instructor and who says he only came to the building to ask about a letter he received from the IRS.

Published

on

Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) on Monday defended President Donald Trump from charges of racism by offering a tortured rationale that is directly contradicted by the president's own words.

During an interview with reporter Bryan Nehman of local Maryland news station WBAL, Harris claimed that Trump telling Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), and Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) to "go back" to the "crime infested places from which they came" was "clearly not racist" because Trump "could have meant go back to the district they came from--to the neighborhood they came from."
