Like David Duke before him, Richard Spencer tried and failed to put a polished veneer on his blatant racism.
Denounced by the Republican Party, the neo-Nazi’s designer suits and well-manicured appearance couldn’t mask his abhorrent ideology, and the ethnic cleansing advocate without a political party has decided to endorse Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
Spencer revealed his intentions in a highly-publicized social media post, adding that “liberals are clearly more competent.”

In a series of tweets, Spencer further explained his reasoning for backing Biden.
“The MAGA/Alt-Right moment is over. I made mistakes; Trump is an obvious disaster; but mainly the paradigm contained flaws that we now are able to perceive. And it needs to end,” Spencer wrote. “So be patient. We’ll have another day in the sun. We need to recover and return in a new form.”
In another tweet, Spencer added: “I will never flip on my fundamental principles. (My principles were never voting for the supposed ‘the lesser or two evils’ or ‘stopping big government.’)
“Walking into certain defeat, even death, is not heroic. It’s foolhardy. I have no sympathy for martyrs. I admire winners.”

Spencer rose to national prominence and infamy through his organization of 2017’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. A fellow white supremacist plowed through a crowd of peaceful counterprotesters with his car in the ensuing chaos, killing Heather Heyer and hospitalizing 19 others.
