White supremacist Richard Spencer has publicly endorsed Joe Biden for president, leading Trump supporters to wonder if the media will ask Biden to disavow Spencer as vociferously as they demanded Trump disavow David Duke.
Spencer was asked on Twitter if he was going to vote for Biden given his “belief that Biden/Kamala will be tougher on crime/BLM than Trump.”
“I plan to vote for Biden and a straight democratic ticket. It’s not based on “accelerationism” or anything like that; the liberals are clearly more competent people,” responded Spencer.
This prompted Spencer, who supported Trump in 2016 but has since been given a platform by the likes of CNN to criticize the president, to immediately begin trending on Twitter.
“Richard Spencer is an unapologetic neo-Nazi,” writes Andrea Widburg. “He’s frequently seen giving Nazi salutes, quoting Nazi propaganda, and making openly anti-Semitic statements.”
