Charlottesville ‘Unite the Right’ trial verdict: Live updates – The Washington Post

Spencer, Kessler and Cantwell are among the most prominent defendants in the lawsuit brought by counterprotesters from the 2017 event. Spencer, who represented himself, coined the term “alt-right” to refer to young, media-savvy White racists. In Charlottesville he led a torch rally through the University of Virginia campus where the crowd chanted, “Jews will not replace us.” In court, he distanced himself from past racist comments, saying, “I’m ashamed of it. Those are not my sincerely, thoughtful beliefs.”
