A newly released video shows a room full of people doing the Hitler salute and yelling "Hail Trump!" after listening to a speech about white nationalism that invokes Nazi terminology.
The video was taken over the weekend by a reporter for The Atlantic while working on a documentary about Richard Spencer. Spencer is the person speaking in the video. He runs the National Policy Institute, a self-described "alt-right" think tank that openly supports white nationalist and neo-Nazi policies. In the past, he has called for a "peaceful ethnic cleansing" of the United States.
In the video, Spencer calls the media "leftists" and "cucks," invoking popular "alt-right" insults for people they disagree with. He calls the media the "Lügenpresse," which is what the original Nazi Party called the media in Germany – the "lying press."
"We don't exploit other groups," he says, the "we" referring explicitly to white people. "We don't gain anything from their presence."
"The press has clearly decided to double-down and wage war against the legitimacy of Trump and the continued existence of white America," he continues. "But they are really opening up the door for us.... America was, until this past generation, a white country, designed for ourselves and our posterity. It is our creation, it is our inheritance, and it belongs to us." Read More
