White Nationalist Speaks at Auburn University
After the group put up its flyers, "literally the next day, Spencer's like, 'Oh, by the way, I'm coming to speak at Auburn, '" Ferriter recounted.
Auburn police spokesman Capt. Lorenza Dorsey told the Associated Press three people were arrested for disorderly conduct, though it remains unclear if they were protesters or attendees of Spencer's talk.
He was greeted by protests that quickly turned violent and led to three arrests. He said his appearance was sponsored by AltRight.com, a white nationalist site. Though most of the protestors were peaceful, at least one fight broke out, resulting in at least one arrest. The unidentified man chanted, "You're not my white", before exiting the room.
"We won a major victory for the alt-right", Spencer said of the order during his remarks, which were repeatedly interrupted by shouts from the crowd. He explained to the audience that "The Alt-right is about identity.about fighting for white European Americans".
He's also touched on a sacred topic to many in the south: SEC football.
Spencer previously advocated for an all-white country, stating in 2013, "We need an ethno-state, so that our people can 'come home again, ' can live amongst family and feel safe and secure".
Spencer paid $700 to speak at James E. Foy Hall on Auburn's campus, as can anyone who wishes, because the school is funded with taxpayer money.
Auburn University officials had banned Spencer's appearance at the school four days ago, citing safety concerns.

On Monday, Spencer told the Plainsman that he took legal action that day to prevent the school from blocking him from speaking on campus.
Spencer was set to speak in a university building, but Auburn University canceled last week due to security concerns.
The ruling by U.S. District Judge W. Keith Watkins came at a hearing in a lawsuit challenging Auburn's refusal to let the talk occur in the student union, as originally planned. "Auburn had it right the first time", Stone wrote.
A booking mug of one of the suspects shows him bloody and bandaged because of a physical altercation between dueling demonstrators before the Tuesday night speech, the website reported.
"Discussing various ideas and perspectives is part of intellectual development, and we applaud those who did so in the spirit of respect and inclusion, even when faced with offensive views much different from their own", said the statement. We are aware that various campus groups have planned events for this evening.
"If Auburn thinks that I'm going to back down because they canceled on me, that I'm just simply going to politely go away, then they don't know me at all".
"The Provost's Office will support requests from faculty and students to miss classes this evening".
