Let’s start from the beginning.
Richard Spencer had been planning the speaking event for several months. It all started when he was contacted by Cameron Padjett, who had invited Richard, and rented the auditorium for 700 dollars. Richard took all the necessary precautions and offered to field the costs in terms of security. The team only found out on Friday that Auburn cancelled the event.
But on Friday, the 14th of April, the event was cancelled for security concerns by the university.
Richard made a Youtube video saying that he would give his talk anyway. What the university was doing was illegal because it was based on a Heckler’s Veto. If somebody threatens to say, blow up a bomb if a demonstration occurs, Federal or State authorities are obliged to provide security and not be intimidated by the threat of violence. It is considered a grievous injury to your personal free speech rights to be denied the right to speak because of a Heckler’s Veto.
The Field Staff
Sam Dickson handled the legal angle. He put together a request for an emergency restraining order against the University. He argued that the rights of Cameron -the plaintiff- were being violated by the university because they allowed a Heckler’s Veto to get in the way of allowing the event to go forward. We also thank Greg, Eli, Matt, and Alexander for handling other crucial security details that day.
A Premature Dox
The night before the event, the Alt-Right team was at the hotel and making last minute preparations. Their location was revealed by the bartender at the hotel who went on his Facebook and revealed Richard’s location. This threw a wrench into the team’s plans as they were forced to leave the hotel early. But no lasting damage was done.
The trial was in Montgomery, Alabama at the Federal District Court, about one hour away from Auburn, Alabama at 1 pm on the day of the event. It was important to get the verdict for two reasons. The first was that if the judge failed to come through, Richard would be forced to give his speech outside, 100 meters away from where Antifa was expected to rally. This would almost certainly mean a brawl breaking out. The second was that the verdict would secure the cooperation of the police, who at that point were not working with Alt-Right team. The trial took about an hour, with 15 minutes for arguments, a 15 minute waiting period and a 5-minute verdict reading. Cameron was called to the stand and interrogated. Richard was also called to the stand by Sam Dickson.
Richard explained what Antifa was about, and brought up the Alabama anti-mask law. Richard made the point that Antifa used masks to get away with committing crimes. He demanded that the anti-mask laws be enforced.
The southern judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff after an incredibly weak argument made by the defense. They simply had no case. The team quickly rolled out and started driving to Auburn.
The police would have to cooperate, and the speech could happen inside, as planned.
About 150 Alt-Righters were in the auditorium for the speech, while some others were left stuck outside. They made up about 1/3 of the crowd in the room. Another 1/3 of the room was hostile.
While the speech was being made, Antifa showed up (bussed in from Birmingham and Atlanta) and didn’t do much. They weren’t allowed to wear masks and that neutered them. Many brought weapons that they didn’t get to use.
But they were a minority in the crowd. Many other groups showed up and held their own protests against Richard, like the SPLC. Classes were cancelled for the evening. About 2000 people showed up, but not all were there to protest. Some were just milling around and gawking at the spectacle. Unlike at Berkeley, the police was actually interested in maintaining order, and the situation remained stable.
After the speech, as it began to get dark, Richard Spencer and the team rolled out of the auditorium quickly and immediately drove away to Atlanta.
The Alt-Right came together to work like a well-oiled war machine. This was an amazing practice run. We have now proven first at Berkeley and now at Auburn that we cannot be stopped, cannot be silenced and are a force to be reckoned with.

While the speech was going on inside, a violent confrontation with antifa was taking place outside.
In the video below, an alt-right guy (in the blue shirt) gets into it with several antifa & ends up taking one to the ground before they are both arrested.
Here’s what the communist looked like afterward.
Matthew Heimbach & the Traditionalist Worker’s Party were also there to provide security for the alt-right crowd as well as anyone else who might be attacked by anti-white terrorists.
Erik Striker had an excellent piece about their involvement, posted below.
The Traditionalist Worker Party and Matthew Heimbach went to Auburn to protect attendants of Richard Spencer’s speech. A chapter of the domestic terrorist group Antifa bussed in a dozen or so militants with the stated intention of committing violence. Neither the FBI nor the police did anything to stop them, and they were able to walk around the campus freely trying to incite violence.
The Antifas themselves reused their script of declaring victory where none was had. Everything Leftists believe is a lie, so it’s no surprise that they lie about “beating down the fash” every time there is an event like this. Their “reality” is informed by crackpot Jew theories, rather than the scientific reverse.
Here is their take on what transpired, from an April 19th entry on the Antifa website “It’s Going Down”:
According to those on the ground, some of the neo-Nazis were beaten as they were chased away by the crowd who chanted, “Tiger town puts Nazis down!” Various fascists were knocked to the ground, punched in the face, and stomped on before police could arrive to help them. As per usual, Richard Spencer was well protected by police and was escorted away from the premises as his “white bloc” security forces faced the wrath of the angry crowd.
While Spencer unsurprisingly declared victory over social media, what is clear is that it was the ability of the police to control the crowd that allowed Spencer to speak – not the ability of the Alt-Right to hold their ground. In the face of mass action from the students who pushed back against them, they high tailed and ran. All the way out of town.
A video from the event shows a very different story.
In order to make space to get the men out safely, Heimbach and the TWP Blackshirts charged towards the crowd. They even had a girl with them to go to town in case one of the many gender-ambiguities on the other side decided to throw a punch. The police rushed in to stop them and protect the Antifa, which allowed a safe passage for the nationalists (except one comrade, who was separated in the chaos).
The cellphone camera and social media are busting all the myths. The ability to garner and access irrefutable proof, as well as media platforms like the Daily Stormer which transmit it, is making all the fake news from Jews and Leftists go up in flames.
Nobody is afraid of Pepsi-Commies anymore. We’re not their parents, we have no obligation to tolerate their temper tantrums and every right to smash their skulls in self-defense. Our numbers are swelling just enough to be able to take them on and win (we can beat them in a 3 on 1 fight). One thing that’s for sure: if you’re not willing to fight back in defense of your rights, nobody will give them to you.
