Hundreds Protest White Nationalist at Texas A&M University

Hundreds Protest White Nationalist at Texas A&M University

The speech, which contained the usual elements of white nationalism, was interrupted on occasion, including multiple times by a person in clown attire, who Spencer fat-shamed. Spencer has said many times that white people face become a marginal minority in the US.

As he delivered his address to a room largely filled with those who oppose his views, about 2,000 gathered at the school's football stadium nearby protesting his message, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The university newspaper The Battalion reported that over the course of Tuesday night's protests, police arrested two people, neither of them students. Texas A&M System Chancellor John Sharp denounced Spencer. And there is a historical connection between Davis and Texas A&M University.

Following the beginning of Spencer's speech in the MSC, protesters proceeded to carry out protesting activities, as they had prior to the event, outside of Rudder Tower and the MSC. Why would I want to be displaced and marginalised?

Meindl said he was compelled to organize the protest to "show support for anti-white-nationalist values like inclusion and diversity on a national scale, not provide the Spencers of the world the ammunition to polarize the conversation".

Throughout his speech, Spencer spoke of the ills he sees in a multi-cultural Texas and United States, saying Texas could be a great place to live, but our bones might have to be buried first.

While about 400 students attended Tuesday's event, hundreds more protested it. He said banning Spencer from speaking on the campus would play into the movement's hands. "Some people here - they're all about, "Love trumps hate" and that's good and al, l but it's not just love that's going to trump hate and trump fascism". "It made Trump an alt-right hero".

Disclosure: Texas A&M University has been a financial supporter of The Texas Tribune.

University officials said they did not organise the speech by Mr Spencer, who had been invited to speak by a former student who reserved campus space available to the public.

There has been a lot of attention on the school since word of Spencer's speech got out and Miendel said the mood on campus has been tense.

Mostly, though, he focused on his message, which was that white people were responsible for building America and should reclaim it as their own. University officials, who have condemned Spencer's views and organized a counter-rally this evening, are "trying to censor me" with the counter-rally, Spencer told the roomful of reporters at the Hilton College Station. But students, alumni and friends battled intolerance Tuesday night. They do not want you to have duties to your people. Wiginton said on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360.

The students claim race relations at the school have never been flawless but that allowing Spencer to speak Tuesday night is wrong, and that A&M President Young should've found a way to stop it long ago.
