Richard Spencer: Small Crowd and Arrests

Hundreds march at Michigan State to protest Richard Spencer's speech

An alt-right supporter of Richard Spencer was arrested for pointing a gun at protesters ahead of the white nationalist's speech at Michigan State University. Spencer blamed the low attendance at his talk on the protests.

Many fights reportedly broke out as people attempted to enter the Michigan State building to hear Richard Spencer. Two dozen people were arrested as a result of the protests, police said.

"The safety and security of our campus community remains our top priority", Monette said.

Spencer's visit occurred during MSU's spring break, which meant a majority of university students were off campus at the time the protest took place.

Michigan State University students are now on spring break, but many reportedly showed up for the speech.

Spencer said he changed his speech before of the violence outside, which he laid squarely on the Antifa protesters. I am for his ability to speak whatever he wants.

Katie Kuhn of Lansing led some anti-Spencer chants.

Richard Spencer coined the term "alt-right, ' and popularized the idea of a future state exclusively for white people".

But protesters, including those who demonstrated peacefully, said it was their duty to stand up to Spencer and his beliefs. "I think he's open to various points of view", said Henry Herskovitz, who attended Spencer's speech. Police say there were around two dozen of them who met by the hundreds of protesters.

Some in armored vehicles, Michigan State Police in riot gear swarmed the scene in East Lansing Monday, on the outskirts of campus.

"The ideas that they espouse: genocide, white supremacy, fascism, are anti-American and unsafe to our people, to our nation, to Americans", he said.
