Protesters clashed with police as white nationalist Richard Spencer took to the stage at Texas A&M University on Tuesday night. Protesters were confronted by law enforcement outside of the student center during Spencer’s speech on white supremacy, the head of the far-right think-tank, The National Policy Institute.
“At the end of the day, America belongs to white men,” Spencer said to the 400 people at the event, which was not sanctioned by the school.
Via The Daily Mail:
Videos and images on social media showed riot police moving protesters from the Memorial Student Center as Spencer spoke.
Texas A&M Police arrested two non-students during the event as tensions rose, but they insisted the event was ‘peaceful’.
Spencer was disowned by his elite Texas prep school last month when he was caught on camera saying ‘hail Trump’ as the crowd flashed him a Nazi salute.
