'Alt-right' leader loses gym membership after confrontation

Richard Spencer loses gym membership after confrontation

Looks like white nationalist Richard Spencer will be hunting for a new gym after his regular Alexandria, Va. establishment pulled his membership after he was confronted by a Georgetown University professor who called him a neo-Nazi.

Mr Spencer is president of the National Policy Institute, a non-profit group which promotes the white nationalist movement, and he has in the past called for "peaceful ethnic cleansing".

White nationalist Richard Spencer's membership was cancelled at the Old Town Sport and Health club in Alexandria, Virginia, following the confrontation with Professor C Christine Fair.

Fair said she would confront Spencer again even though she has received a slew of hateful message from internet trolls. What kind of martial race member is he?'

In her Tumblr post, Fair wrote.

Spencer commented on the incident in an interview with Buzzfeed News, where he explained he'd hoped to avoid an argument by refusing to confirm his identity to Fair.

Fair wrote that she discussed the situation with the gym's general manager who was initially supportive of Spencer's right to work out there so long as he didn't harass or bother anyone. "As a woman, I find your statements to be particularly odious; moreover, I find your presence in this gym to be unacceptable, your presence in this town to be unacceptable". I found his membership at this gym to be an unfair burden upon the women and people of color-and white male allies of the same. I can't believe she's a professor.

I told her that when she googles this wretch, she should be ashamed of herself and apologize to me and every employee at this gym who must suffer the indignities of treating this man like a civilized person when he is orthogonal to a civilized person.

And it worked. Spencer showed his termination letter to BuzzFeed, telling the publication he doesn't interact with anyone at the gym and never made any trouble: "I really just go and lift weights". "But she started screeching and yelling all this stuff", Spencer added, saying that other patrons asked her stop. At first, she said, Spencer denied who he was.

'This pusillanimous s***bird actually requested one of the African American Female Trainers to help him escape from my confronting him.

Fair, for her part, is unrepentant. Fair said she told the woman to Google him. "I told the fellow, 'I think we can have a deal here: You don't let any more Nazis in, and I won't be making a scene'".
