Richard Spencer Leads Neo-Nazis in "Hail Trump" Salute

Inside, Spencer and others took questions from the media, who were restricted from taking pictures of any of the attendees without their consent. The men resembled Washington lobbyists more than the robed Ku Klux Klansmen or skinhead toughs who often represent white supremacists, though they share many familiar views.

One speaker, Peter Brimelow, the founder of Vdare.com, an anti-immigration website, noted that if Hispanics had the National Council of La Raza and Jews had the Anti-Defamation League, why were whites reluctant to organize for their rights?

As the up-and-coming intellectual voice of the movement, Spencer is credited with popularizing the term "alt-right". "The fact that he is going to be at such a high level, I think, is a wonderful thing", he said. "I'm an economic nationalist".

Spencer was highly complimentary of Trump's first cabinet picks, particularly choosing Alabama Sen. And The Post's David Weigel quoted Spencer saying Sessions - tapped to be attorney general - is "eye-to-eye with us" on immigration (Sessions has tried to restrict legal immigration).

As the white nationalists spoke inside the federal building a stones-throw from the White House and from Trump's International Hotel, dozens of protesters gathered outside holding signs that read "Alt-wrong" and "No fascist U.S.".

Until Paul and I broke with the group around 3:30 p.m., we did not witness any further physical violence.

The so-called "Alt Right" - a group of white-nationalist racists with a cultural affinity for the Nazis - just held a conference in Washington, DC to celebrate Trump's election.

In another part of his 30-minute speech, Spencer said: "The mainstream media, or perhaps we should refer to them in the original German: 'Lugenpresse'".

The company "does not always share the views held by its clients but as managers of a federal government building, we also can not prohibit rental of this space based on political or religious beliefs", it said. The attendees were predominantly young and male.

Outside the atmosphere was very tense, reflective of the mood of the country in the almost two weeks since the election.

At Saturday's event, organizers were holding an "ask us anything" news conference inside the Reagan building downtown as protesters filled the streets outside on Pennsylvania Avenue.

"We don't exploit other groups", he said, referencing other ethnicities. At around 1 p.m., a conference attendee who exited the conference got into a violent confrontation with protesters. A man's head was bloodied, according to WUSA, and NBC Washington reported police detained at least two people. "In 2010, Spencer founded AlternativeRight.com, which would become a center of alt-right thought". "Hail victory!" Spencer cried out, as he praised president-elect Donald Trump's recent election win.

"It was more like a cocktail party among old friends", Forney said of previous gatherings. "Now, it's like we're the vanguard of a new movement". He is not associated with the alt-right movement. We build. We produce.

Here is the video, excerpted from an Atlantic documentary profile of Spencer that will premiere in December 2016.

Trump has denied any affiliation with the alt-right, and as Politico reports, Spencer himself does not believe the president-elect to be a member.

The studies published by Spencer's group give us a decent idea of one major strategy: to revitalize the widely discredited field of race science and prove that people of color are genetically inferior to whites - a major talking point white nationalists use to justify their dream of creating a whites-only nation.
