Richard Spencer ends University of Florida speech early to boos, protests
And that's a Fox News headline.
This came after the governor of Florida, good ol' Alien McFrightingeyes, declared a state of emergency just because that loser was going to speak at the University. I'm sure he didn't want another Charlottesville, so he jacked up the police presence by 1000%. Because that never resulted in violence.
I really don't know why the U of F didn't just cancel the event, seeing as the extra security cost them $500,000. Is it worth that much to pander to nazis?
Anyway, pretty much everyone hated him except a tiny little crowd of white shirts.
Spencer just bitching & whining at protesters now. $500,000 in university money to do this. #SpencerAtUF pic.twitter.com/z4hYqkMZGT— Christopher Mathias (@letsgomathias) October 19, 2017
I don't know what's funnier, that or this quote from some point in the night:
"I'm not going home, I will stand here all day if I have to," a combative Spencer told the crowd.
The he went home early.
Honestly, the entire thing is a treasure trove of hilarity and good vibes. Check this out:

Just. Can we be this awesome when it comes to standing up to police brutality? Or gentrification? Or rape culture? Pretend those are nazis or something.
