Full disclosure, I graduated from the University of Florida in 1995.
Judging by the tweets (#SpencerAtUF), a lot of people showed up to protest and now they’re walking out of the building.
Spencer, who heads the National Policy Institute, a nationalist think tank, is scheduled to speak at 2:30 p.m. EDT [October 19, 2017] at a [University of Florida] campus performing arts center. The university said it did not invite him to speak, but was obligated by law to allow the event.
Richard Spencer’s event at the university in Gainesville, which prompted the governor to declare a state of emergency to prepare for possible violence, comes about two months after rallies by neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, led to a deadly clash with counter-protesters.
The school said it will spend more than $500,000 on security, and the National Policy Institute is paying more than $10,000 to rent the facility and for security within the venue. Source: Reuters.com
Last December, Spencer visited Texas A&M University, and was met with a small crowd, most of whom were protesters. At that time I said watch this guy we’ll see him again.
