Alt-Right's Richard Spencer Returns to Rally in Charlottesville

Richard Spencer, the creator of the term “alt-right,” returned to Charlottesville Saturday night (10/7), less than two months after the fatal Unite the Right Rally.

Spencer, who headlined the disastrous August 12th rally, returned to town with around 40 young men carrying torches, singing “Dixie,” and chanting such slogans as “You will not replace us” and “Russia is our friend” according to footage from a blogger called Meme Alert.

“We’re going to come back again and again and again.” Although physically peaceful and lasting just ten minutes, the assembly brought widespread rebukes from elected officials, including the mayor and the governor. Already, the University of Virginia has banned open flames, and the City announced last night that it seeks authority to prevent such demonstrations in the future.
