From the NY Time’s article “Civil Rights Groups Call on Trump to Denounce Racism of Alt-Right:”
Asked on Monday about the comments, Mr. Spencer said he had gotten caught up in his passion for the alt-right cause.
“My talk certainly was strident, and it definitely was about getting a rise out of people and expressing excitement,” he said. “There’s a lot of cheekiness going on and exuberance.”
Of the salute that is synonymous with anti-Semitism, he said, “That was a rhetorical flourish.”
I sometimes get excited about something but that has never led me to done a Nazi salute… not even a little goosestep!
Now, I don’t believe that all Trump supporters are racists like many of those in the Alt-Right, but I do think that if you are a racist you’re probably a Trump supporter. And that should give the people who are supporting Trump because they are sick of politics as usual pause.
Also, I might have to add a Politics category to this blog. What is happening in the world?!
