Richard Spencer`s National Policy Institute
is having a conference at the Ronald Reagan Building, [registration here
] in Washington, DC on October 26, 2013.
The reason they`ve chosen a federally owned building is the same reason Jared Taylor held his last two American Renaissance conferences in a state-owned facility in Tennessee—
the First Amendment. In a government facility, restrictions on speech have to be "content-neutral",
i. e. not based on your opinions.
If you hold it in a hotel
, corporate weasels can back out of contracts out of fear
, in a government building, they have access to all kinds of armed security.
I`ll note that Richard Spencer has recently been honored by an attack in Salon Magazine
(haven`t we all?
): The Hatemonger Next Door,
Lauren M. Fox, September 29, 2013. He emailed us to say it was a "strangely flattering hit-piece."
