Richard Spencer, Alt-right poster boy and president of the National Policy Institute, a white supremacist think tank, was at a Virginia gym working out when he got busted by a Georgetown professor.
C. Christine Fair, who was also present at Alexandria’s Old Town Sport&Health gym, noticed Spencer and went up to him to confront him. Apparently, members and trainers of the gym had just the same day shared with that Fair that Spencer had joined their gym and that sharing the space with a known white supremacist made them upset and uncomfortable.
“I said also, 'I’m going to go to corporate, because this is a hostile work environment for you all,'” Fair told Jezebel.
But when she asked him “Are you Richard Spencer?” the coward immediately denied it, saying “No. I am not.” But that wasn’t true.
In a post on Tumblr, Fair wrote all about her encounter with the white supremacist who thinks no end of himself.
“I exploited the full range of my First Amendment entitlements by telling him that this country does not belong to white men. As a white woman, I find his membership at this gym to be unacceptable. I found his membership at this gym to be an unfair burden upon the women and people of color — and white male allies of the same. I also loudly identified him as a neo-Nazi,” Fair wrote.
She also pointed out Spencer, who otherwise scorns people of color, had the audacity to ask an African-American trainer to help him.
But a white woman who had no idea about what a toxic man Spencer is tried to intervene and call Fair out — until the professor told her Spencer's background.
Just to remind everyone why Fair and others hate Spencer so much, in December last year, the white supremacist boasted that because of the conquest of North America by European invaders, “America belongs to white men.”

On the same day , he also took to the opportunity to praise President Donald Trump for being an “alt-right hero” and for reminding white Americans of what makes “the white race truly unique and truly wonderful.”

Spencer has also given Nazi salutes at public events while shouting, “Heil, Trump!” and marched in Charlottesville, VA, carrying torches to protest the removal of monuments to former Confederate war heroes. It doesn’t get worse than this.
These are only few of the many instances Spencer has voiced his white supremacist, racist, neo-Nazi ideologies and blatantly discriminated against people of color.
Following the incident, Spencer — who said: “I’m really a model-gym goer. I don’t bother anyone. I don’t talk to anyone. I really just go and lift weights.” — had his gym membership revoked.
He also claimed he denied being Richard Spencer when Fair asked him because he wanted her to “go away” and that he was only “peacefully working out” when the confrontation took place.
