White supremacist Richard Spencer makes racist slurs on tape leaked by rival Ex-Breitbart writer Milo Yiannopoulos released expletive-laden audio recording amid deepening in-fighting on the far right (The Guardian link): White nationalist Richard Spencer, who came to national prominence in the US through his efforts to lend a respectable face to a racist political movement dubbed the “alt-right”, has apparently been caught on tape using racist slurs against African Americans and Jewish people.

The leaked audio, supposedly recorded in the immediate aftermath of the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville in 2017 and the murder of anti-Nazi protester Heather Heyer, appears to feature an angry Spencer ranting against Charlottesville citizens and promising to return to the city for further protests.
On the recording, the voice continues: “Little fucking kikes. They get ruled by people like me. Little fucking octaroons. My ancestors fucking enslaved those little pieces of fucking shit.” Later, he continued, “Those pieces of shit get ruled by people like me. They look up and see a face like mine looking down at them.”

Alt Right support for the 2016 Trump campaign, and Spencer’s cultivation of a superficial civility – largely avoiding crude slurs and the markers of previous neo-Nazi subcultures – allowed Spencer to gain media coverage and a hearing in some mainstream outlets. As recently as July 2019 Spencer was interviewed on CNN.
