Al-right leader Richard Spencer accused of years of domestic violence



Richard Spencer, the man who claims to have coined the term "alt-right" as a polite company way to say "white nationalism," is getting a divorce. If this were a normal divorce proceeding, that wouldn't be news, but Spencer is accused of physically and verbally abusing his wife, Nina Kouprianova, almost as soon as the two were married.

At the Huffington Post, Lyz Lenz details the allegations from Kouprianova, and they're unsettling to read. Kouprianova describes Spencer waking her up in the middle of the night to scream at her, him dragging her down the stairs to force her to watch a movie with him, and threatening to break her nose. When he spoke to Lenz, Spencer denied that he'd ever physically abused Kouprianova, but admits that he said "terrible things" to her because she so "frustrated" him. But the judge in the case has refused to seal the records, and they tell a different story:


The shock would be if this were not true.


Quote:
In an affidavit filed in June, Kouprianova claims that her eight-year marriage to Spencer was rife with abuse—emotional, financial and physical. In July 2014, when Kouprianova was four months pregnant, according to the affidavit, Spencer pushed her down and held her by her neck and her jaw. She has pictures of the bruising.

In an email about the incident, he apologized, saying he felt “terrible.” There was also the time he pushed her into the stove when she was pregnant, she says. He would wake her up screaming at her, telling her to kill herself. She recorded hours of him screaming at her, some of which she transcribed and included in the affidavit.

You have ALWAYS said that and it is almost always true.

I wonder what Jerry Falwell did to his family.

The abusive behavior started right at the beginning according to Kouprianova, she went ahead and had two children with him anyway while she worked translating Russian fascist literature into English.

Nice couple.

I saw so many of sick dyads like this in the 20 years or so that I was a direct service provider that I began to feel that it was probably a good thing they had each other. So two other decent people didn't have to be miserable.

Neo-Nazi Richard Spencer’s wife is a Russian propagandist with allegiance to Putin
http://www.rawstory.com/2016/11/neo-naz ... -to-putin/

Richard Spencer, who has emerged as the face of the latest attempt to “intellectualize” white supremacy, is married to a Russian scholar who publishes pro-Kremlin propaganda.

Nina Kouprianova, who also writes under the name Nina Byzantina, publishes articles lionizing Vladimir Putin, criticizing western media and appears on the Kremlin-funded RT network to promote anti-Ukraine talking points.

Spencer, the head of the innocuously named National Policy Institute, has also appeared on anti-American segments broadcast by RT, although the English-language network does not highlight his relationship to Kouprianova.

However, a profile posted on the Neo-Nazi Wermod & Wermod Publishing Group’s website shows the couple dining together with British psychology professor Richard Lynn, whose writings attempt to link ethnicity and race to intelligence.

The couple, who have a young daughter together, are currently separated, according to a recent Washington Post profile, which identifies Byzantina by her married name and does not detail her work.

Kouprianova has also translated the work of Russian political scientist Aleksandr Dugin, who has been linked to nationalist and fascist groups in his home country, although she attacks Ukraine’s leadership as fascist in her writings and television appearances.

Spencer, who took over as president of the white nationalist organization founded by conservative publisher William Regnery II, is credited with popularizing the term “alt-right” — a catch-all phrase describing white nationalists, neo-Nazis and other bigots who congregate at Breitbart News.

[snip]

“I think that Putin and Trump in a way offer an alternative to what’s going on at the moment,” Spencer said last year on RT. “They offer an alternative what you call neo-conservative or neoliberal foreign policy.”

[snip][end]

Yeah: that alternative is called Third Position.

Quote:
Speaking of the global width, Richard Spencer was at an earlier alt-right rally in Charlottesville in May, and I'd like to point out what they were chanting then.

http://www.newsday.com/opinion/commenta ... 1.13643703

President Donald Trump isn’t the only American leader with a puzzling fondness for Russian president Vladimir Putin’s regime.

Consider, for example, the chant that was caught on local television footage as it was shouted by several dozen torch-carrying protesters who rallied against removal of a Confederate monument in a Charlottesville, Va., park last Saturday.

“Russia is our friend!” they shouted. “Russia is our friend!”

What, many observers must have wondered, did Russia have to do with the Confederacy?

Not much, except in the minds of such key leaders of the alt-right as Richard Spencer, who spoke and carried a torch in Charlottesville, where he once attended the University of Virginia.

Spencer is widely credited with coining the term “alt-right” to describe his Americanized version of Euro-nationalism that seeks a whites-only state. He also is famous for being punched in the face in a video-recorded street attack that went viral on YouTube and for being thrown out of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) convention this spring. You know that you’re way out in the far-right field when you’re thrown out of CPAC.

Beneath his digital-age jargon and elegantly soft-spoken manner, Spencer offers a rehashed version of traditional doomsday visions of “white culture” under assault by a rising tide of feminists, nonwhites and other scapegoats for all white miseries.

“What brings us together,” he told the crowd at an earlier rally Saturday, “is that we are white, we are a people, we will not be replaced.”

Yet Spencer also shows a curiously deep admiration for Russia, which he has called “the sole white power in the world.” His former wife is the Russian writer and self-described “Kremlin troll leader” Nina Kouprianova. Writing and blogging under the pen name Nina Byzantina, she regularly follows Kremlin talking points.

Like Spencer, she has defended Syria’s butcher president -- and Putin ally -- Bashir al-Assad, describing reports of civilian deaths in Aleppo as “fake news.”

Former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke, who has eagerly embraced the alt-right movement, has traveled to Russia several times to promote his book “The Ultimate Supremacism: My Awakening on the Jewish Question,” according to the Anti-Defamation League.

Rising self-described white nationalist Matthew Heimbach also has praised Putin’s Russia as “the axis for nationalists,” according to an interview by Business Insider. “I really believe that Russia is the leader of the free world right now,” he told the news website. “Putin is supporting nationalists around the world and building an anti-globalist alliance, while promoting traditional values and self-determination.”

Heimbach leads the Traditionalist Workers Party which, like Spencer’s American Policy Institute, is listed as a “white identity” hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Leading American alt-right figures like “race realist” Jared Taylor also attended a right-wing conference in St. Petersburg, Russia, two years ago, organized by a fringe nationalist Russia group. Taylor, according to Business Insider, called the United States “the greatest enemy of tradition everywhere.”
