Last week, the Providence College Republicans hosted Richard Spencer, editor of AlternativeRight.com. As you can see from this report and embedded video, foul-mouthed “antifa” interrupted Spencer’s talk twice, once at 2:38 into the video, and again at 4:00 in. The second time, they poured into the room like circus clowns from a clown car, showing off their costumes, their self-righteousness, and, um, piercings, like the knucklehead in shining armor pictured above.
Watch Spencer keep his cool, and even try to hide his amusement at times. One member of the audience responded to the chief antifa spokesgoon with, “Get a latte!” which evoked knowing snickers. Gee, I wonder where that came from?
Despite the noise and profanity, which is all these antifa types are capable of, the talk continued. The antifa didn’t silence anyone.
Still, this bothers me for a couple of reasons. It would’ve been profoundly satisfying if campus security had hauled these brats to timeout, but it looks like they took off because they just got tired of throwing their tantrum. You can’t hold your breath forever after you turn blue.
Also, I wonder if the College Republicans would’ve gotten off so easy if they’d interrupted a meeting of, say, the Self-Hating Whites Club.
