Richard Spencer, the face of the so called Alt-Right, quotes Cabaret, gets schooled

One of the best social media exchanges I’ve seen in quite a while took place earlier this evening between white nationalist “it” boy Richard Spencer, and Jason Kander, the former Secretary of State of Missouri.

Last night, a gunman opened fire on people praying at the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center, leaving six dead and five critically injured.

Before you thank Trump for finally telling the violent racists emboldened by his victory to “Stop it,” you should know that he also announced his chief White House strategist would be Steve Bannon, the man who brought white nationalism into the mainstream with the alt-right

Since the election, as I’m sure you know, a number of non-white Americans have come forward to report instances of racial intimidation.
