“I approached this flaccid, sorry excuse of a man and asked ‘Are you Richard Spencer?’”
He’s definitely white, but there wasn’t much “power” on display. Richard Spencer, the notorious creator of the term “alt-right” and a figurehead of the white nationalist movement, just got taken down in hilarious fashion.
Spencer was working out at an Alexandria, Virginia, gym when a fellow patron recognized him. C. Christine Fair, an associate professor at Georgetown University’s Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, decided she couldn’t pass the chance to confront her gym’s biggest dumbbell.
“First, I want to note that this man is a supreme coward,” Fair wrote in a Tumblr post chronicling the incident. “When I approached this flaccid, sorry excuse of a man and asked ‘Are you Richard Spencer,’ this pendulous poltroon said, ‘No. I am not.’”
Things only escalated from there in hilarious fashion. After calling out Spencer’s many crimes against decency, the white supremacist then literally called on a female, African-American personal trainer to rescue him from Fair’s rhetorical burpees.
Spencer confirmed as much, whining, “I don’t come to the gym to do politics. But she started screeching and yelling all this stuff,” he said in an interview with BuzzFeed.
But the best part is that after getting his so-called manliness handed to him by Fair, the gym then took things to the next level by “terminating” Spencer’s gym membership.
“I was a well-behaved member of this gym. I did not cause any controversy,” Spencer insisted, apparently suffering from continued cognitive dissonance after being punched in the face by a stranger a few months ago.
