Racist Richard Spencer Needs His Mommy to Pay Off His Credit Card, Can’t Buy a $4 Drink

Richard Spencer is having a rough go lately. GoDaddy pulled his racist website from the web, Facebook took down his pages that he used to promote his pathetic agenda and fleece

gullible racists out of their money, the lawyer who has been defending him quit not only Spencer but the movement, and he’s been reduced, like all good Nazis, to begging other people to give him money.

That last point became abundantly clear this weekend when Spencer tried to buy a $4.25 shot of bourbon at the Great Northern Bar in Whitefish and his credit card was declined. Spencer, who told Mother Jones in 2017, that he was “going to navigate the world as it is, and I’m not going to be a pauper” apparently lacks the resources to buy himself even a mediocre shot of bourbon.

Doug Rommereim, the owner of the Great Northern Bar, posted the image of Spencer’s declined card on Facebook with this comment:

Dear Mr. Spencer. Please refrain from visiting our establishment in the future. It makes everybody feel real scummy. We appreciate your understanding AND cooperation in this matter. Thank you. Also, you might want to tell your mommy to put some more money in your account. As you can see, your card was declined. Don’t worry about paying us back. We’ll just write it off as a bad loan to a good nazi.

I don’t think any of us need to spare any sympathy for Mr. Spencer, but it might be a good time to drop into the Great Northern and thank its owner for letting Spencer know he’s not welcome there any longer.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
