Richard Spencer – Angry again, angry again

[ 51 ] June 17, 2017 |

The complaint of the Punching Bag Who Walks Like a Man may sound familiar. That’s because like all tough right wing types he’s a natural born whiner.

November – Disappointed because the Day-Glo Dickhead disavowed white supremacists (except Bannon).

December – Distances his dapper Nazis from Napoleorange.

April – Disappointed the Half Wit in the White House ordered air strikes in Syria.

Clearly there’s a pattern and that pattern is whining because tRump is being mean to him. But I’m glad he whined again to TPM, otherwise the world might not have been treated to Cuckito ergo sum.

    Oh, woodgie boo! Poor, poor baby.

    He’s just asking to be mocked into oblivion, isn’t he?

    BTW, for what little difference it makes (since I have no influence over anybody), I am no longer using “alt.right” to describe these racist assholes.
    If it looks like a Nazi, talks like a Nazi, complains like a Nazi…..
    Fuck Godwin, it’s a Nazi.

    • Agreed. However, I do propose the term Galt-Right be used to describe libertarians.

        Certainly works for me, but you’re the one with keys to the front page. I’m just along for the ride to be a cranky old man and piss people off.

        Galt-right is brilliant!

        (I describe the modern Republican Party as “the bastard child of Ayn Rand and Anthony Comstock”)

          thanks so much for this disturbing mental image Karen! I just started looking at this thread, and already have to go bleach my brain.

          Young Mr. Spencer’s problem is that he’s a needy little prick. Apparently, his parents didn’t pay him enough attention as a child. Attention, by whatever means gained, is still attention. Why anyone pays him any attention is the real mystery here. he’s not even creatively obnoxious, just the bore who somehow got into your party, and now you’re stuck trying to figure out how to convince him to leave, without causing a scene.

        I prefer the term Shruggalos myself, but Galt-Right is solid.

          I feel that this does a disservice to Juggalos. Although ICP’s music is awful, for a subculture that is largely low-income whites with self-perceived “outsider” status and thus presumably a fertile recruiting ground for white nationalists, they have done an admirable job at purging their ranks of Nazis.

          • Bubblegum Tate

            Excellent point.

    • DrDick

      I would add that he largely lives off his mama (who owns the building where his offices in Whitefish are.

    Just as I wanted Christopher Walken to get an Oscar for his five minute role in Pulp Fiction, I want there to be a Pulitzer for “Cuckito ergo sum.”

  • wjts

    So Spencer misjudged that man’s limits and pushed him too far; took him for granted and thought that he needed him more?

    • Nick056

      That is not Spencer’s favorite Cure song.

      • postmodulator

        You did what I see there.

    • I’m having to write a paper on a book about borderline personality. What I get, reading Spencer, is a variant on it: “Hitler and the Borderline: my dive into borderline personality disorder through national socialism, blogging, and online begging.”

      • Manju

        Somehow I think its more: “Something in His Eyes is Making Such a Fool of Me: how Donald Trump keeps on pushing me over the borderline.”

        • Manju

          However, I’m willing to defer judgement until Camille Paglia weighs in.

  • jim, some guy in iowa

    neither here nor there, really, but I like Marshall’s annotations, drawings and adventures in heraldry

    • Warren Terra

      I like that he’s having fun, but his annotations are not well designed for accessibility – too many clicks to make them legible.

    • Nick056

      I derive totally irrational amounts of joy from Josh’s drawings. His angry Eustice Tilley was a masterpiece.

    • Origami Isopod

      I’m not on the Tweeters so I had no idea he drew. That’s cool.

  • ToddTheVP

    What do you mean, “I stiff my contractors?”
    Why do you think I’m broke?
    What do you mean, “I couldn’t be the President of the United States of America?”
    Tell me something, it’s still “We the people,” right?
    Trump sells, but who’s buying?

        I read a bit of that article. like most stories written about finance, by people who obviously have no background in the subject, it wasn’t clear to me if it’s increases in gross income/net income, or what? in the ordinary course of things, you’d expect that increases in gross income (all income) would result in increased net income (income after expenses/taxes). this, however, is no ordinary businessman we’re talking about, this is a businessman who managed to bankrupt two casinos, a rare accomplishment indeed.

    • Dr. Acula

      You take a mortal man
      And put him in control
      Watch him become a god
      Watch people’s heads a’roll
      A’roll, a’ roll

      Just like the Pied Piper
      Led rats through the streets
      We dance like marionettes
      Swaying to the symphony
      Of destruction

      Too bad Mustaine turned into a right-wing turd.

      • bs

        AFAICT, he kept his stupid mouth shut last year re: the election & just played guitar (at which hes a damn virtuoso) & whined (dear FSM hire a real fkin singer please!) Another one of those “separate the art from the artist” dilemmas, i suppose.

  • NewishLawyer

    Hey! I finally agree with Spencer on something!

    He sounds pathetic!

  • Hells Littlest Angel

    “… it feels a little bit like getting dumped by your girlfriend.”

    No, it doesn’t. But Spencer has no way of knowing that.

    • “How did you know he’s a Nazi?”
      “He talks in his sleep.”

    • Hogan

      It’s more like Groundskeeper Willie learning that there’s no such thing as Scotchtoberfest. “Ya used me, Skinner! Ya used me!”

  • Judas Peckerwood

    Hey, nazi punching bags have feelings too!

  • Aaron Baker

    The misery this little fuck would like to visit on vast numbers of innocent people–I’d like to revel in his self-pity, but I’m just finding it too obscene.

  • J. Otto Pohl

    I am not sure why the opposition to US bombing in Syria which is a position shared by a number of people outside the alt-right is viewed by LGM as beyond the pale. Spencer also supports single payer health care. Is that too a racist Nazi policy? For all his faults Assad is in many ways preferable to his Salafist opposition. Further more the US is currently using WP in Syria with completely predictable damage to the civilian population. I have seen a number of people oppose this policy, none of them members of the alt-right and I don’t think this opposition is unreasonable. So why does LGM consider opposing the US bombing of Syria to try and bring down Assad to be a racist and even Nazi policy?

    • Manju

      Because Hitler was a vegetarian.

    • Challenge: Find the bit that says Spencer’s opposition to the bombing is beyond the pale.

      • J. Otto Pohl

        This is too easy. There are lots of things you could have linked to a post condemning Richard Spencer. But, rather than link to those things you chose to link to an article on his opposition to Trump’s bombing of Syria. The implication in a post that is in its text completely about how horrible Spencer is as a person is that part of his horribleness is his opposition to bombing Syria.

        • wjts

          Also, every liberal everywhere believes that there was no racism in the Soviet Union and every conservative everywhere supports the Palestinians.

          P.S. I am not a crackpot.

        • No, the post implies that bombing Syria is a matter on which Richard Spencer feels Trump has betrayed him.

        • Try again while wearing your reading for context glasses.

          • DrDick

            Assumes abilities never in evidence.

    • cpinva

      yeah, I don’t see anyone here arguing over his Syria position, or single-payer. lots of truly odious people have some positions I agree with, that doesn’t make them any less odious.

      • rea

        single-payer

        Hitler was a socialist, after all.

        • wjts

          The point of this post is obviously to prove Richard Spencer is a horrible person by listing all of his horrible beliefs. Only by willfully misreading sentences like “there’s a pattern and that pattern is whining because tRump is being mean to him” could you believe that this post is about something else. Like how Richard Spenser whines like a toddler who got a pair of argyle socks and a copy of Fundamentals of Dentistry for Christmas instead of a set of Romping Stomping MegaBot action figures whenever that man does something Spencer doesn’t like, such as bombing Syria, regardless of who else may or may not support or oppose that man’s actions.

    • BiloSagdiyev

      Does Spencer support single payer for all American citizens?

      • Right–if you don’t support single payer for all American citizens you don’t really support single payer. You are like a person who supports “government give me money for my ethnic subgroup and family” while deporting/imprisoning/killing everyone else. That the words “single payer” occasionally occur in some of his writings does not mean that he actually supports a laudable liberal goal. Just that he sometimes talks about robbing the public purse for his ethnic minority using language that fools Jotto.

        • J. Otto Pohl

          No, my point was that linking to an article on Spencer’s opposition to bombing Syria as an example of his horribleness is very questionable. Likewise it would be questionable to link to an article on his support for single payer to prove that he is a horrible person. There are lots of links to articles that do prove he is a horrible human being. But, claiming part of his horrible nature is that he opposes US bombing of Syria to remove Assad is a very bad call. There are literally thousands of links to stories proving his actual horribleness without having to take the position that only Nazis oppose bombing Syria.

          • The article wasn’t about his opposition to bombing syria. The post in question was about his whining about his breakup with Trump. You must have a lot of time on your hands.

    • Harkov311

      I’m guessing his support for universal health care doesn’t extend to brown people. And I don’t think anyone actually said anything about his Syria position being “beyond the pale.”

      • And I don’t think anyone actually said anything about his Syria position being “beyond the pale.”

        And you yourself just expressed doubt that his “support for universal health care” goes beyond the pale!
