In the video, taken inside the conference and published by The Atlantic, Richard Spencer, a leader of the "alt-right" movement, says America belongs to white people, who he describes as "children of the sun".
He said he and like-minded "identitarians" his preferred label for white identity politics see Trump's election as validating their view that the United States is flailing because it has embraced multiculturalism and political correctness at the expense of its European heritage.
President-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday that he disavowed racist elements of the "alt-right" and that his campaign was not about staring racial hatred. Part of this public denouncement could have everything to do with a high-profile white-supremacist/neo-Nazi Trump group holding a conference last weekend in Washington D.C. There, they toasted his victory with Nazi salutes, which isn't the greatest look for any new presidential administration.
U.S. president-elect Donald Trump said Tuesday he condemns a gathering of white supremacists in Washington where supporters had praised him while delivering Nazi salutes.
Alt-right supporters were filmed on Saturday in Washington DC cheering as a speaker shouted: "Hail Trump".
"Breitbart is just a publication. And I think white people, and it showed with Trump's election, are concerned about their future". "Hail our people. Hail victory!"
Mary Louise Piccard said her ex-husband had objected to sending their children to one particular academy because he "didn't want the girls going to school with Jews". The journalists live-tweeted their encounter, which revealed, among other things, that he is not standing with the alt-right movement.
During his tenure at Breitbart, Bannon spread anti-establishment agendas and conspiracy theories as one of the leading outlets for the alt-right movement.
The president-elect also rushed to defend Stephen Bannon, his recently announced chief strategist in the White House who has been accused by several Jewish and left-wing organizations of backing alt-right and racist causes.
"It's not a group I want to energize".
After footage from the conference surfaced yesterday, the Holocaust Museum issued a statement condemning the "hateful rhetoric" at the white nationalist conference, including the "direct and indirect" allusions to Nazism. "For us it is conquer or die", Spencer said in the edited video.
