The National Policy Institute’s 2016 Become Who You Are winter conference was perhaps the most eventful of its kind. There was great optimism and excitement among the attendees. The media showed in force to cover the conference with news outlets from all over the world present. There was also a renewed leftist assault against our message resulting from Donald Trump’s win on November 8. It cannot be denied that we, the Alternative Right, are a presence in national political conversation. We have, without a doubt, “made it.”
The weekend started with intensity. After having two venues cancel on us for our dinner Friday night, we had the third location stormed by no fewer than fifty Anti-Fa goons. They terrorized the staff and patrons trying to get to our room on the second floor. NPI president Richard Spencer, Identity Evropa founder Nathan Damigo, and others confronted the violent, anti-white mob. Richard was sprayed with some sort of foul smelling liquid forcing him to shed his suit jacket and shirt. Richard, ever unflappable and clad only in his suit vest from the waist up, continued the event unfazed. The Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia was little to no help during the incident. Rather than do their jobs and quell the protesters, they asked the restaurant to kick us out, a request which the restaurant refused. A true case of anarchy-tyranny in action.
