White nationalist figurehead Richard Spencer is a dorky mamas boy with no real accomplishments

by John Stoehr, Washington Monthly, at Raw Story



Richard Spencer lives on his family’s fortune. That wealth in part comes from owning, for generations, huge tracts of land used in growing cotton. That cotton is subsidized, like many farming operations, to maintain prices by the federal government.

Moreover, Spencer dropped out of graduate school and does not appear to have held down a real job before founding his “think tank.” No one knows where he got the money to found it. The National Policy Institute has lost its tax-exempt status.

What do we make of these facts?

For one thing, it’s hard to maintain the veneer of strength and purity when you are vulnerable to accusations of being a mama’s boy. (His parents are evidently mainstream Republican who dislike their son’s embrace of fascism, but not enough, apparently, to cut him off.)

1. He is a welfare beneficiary with big paydays.

and the subsidies are costing us greatly.

One of his desired outcome is a safe space for white people such as himself.

I notice in the health care debate some Republicans said people could move to another state if their state did not provide heath care.

Probably the creation of a number of white enclave states is part of the white supremacy area,

Richard Spencer may be a good argument for taxing inherited wealth at 100%. The family fortune has deprived him of the necessity of working for a living and thereby building character.
