Florida braces for white nationalist Richard Spencer

Florida braces for white nationalist Richard Spencer

In a 2015 interview with Vice magazine, Spencer said that, "He prefers the terms "alternative right" and "identitarianist" over "racist" or 'white supremacist'".

Mitch Emerson, an organizer of protests planned today, told BuzzFeed that, if there is a clash between Spencer's supporters and opponents, "there are a lot more of us than them".

It is his first event since he and other white supremacists participated in the "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia that turned deadly.

UF says it is not sponsoring the event, it is not hosting Spencer, and no campus groups invited him.

"By shunning him and his followers we will block his attempt for further visibility", Mr Fuchs said in a statement.

The college said it would have to spend more than $500,000 (£380,000) on security.

But in a climate in which the conversation is focused on affordability, ROI and the public burden of higher education, framing opposition to allowing these individuals on campus is an incredibly savvy move which will catch the attention of the same legislators who seek to push through bills to protect free speech above all.

When he issued the declaration, McAuliffe had said via his Twitter account that he did it in order "to aid state response to violence" at the Charlottesville rally. While the University of Florida initially blocked Spencer from speaking, as a state institution, the University is not able to limit free speech. including hate speech.

UF finally granted their request after the National Policy Institute threatened to sue the school.

University of Florida president W. Kent Fuchs has asked students to stay clear of Spencer's talk.

Darnell said Scott's executive order was not meant to "alarm anyone", but to make sure that her office has the "resources and equipment to help us prepare for violence or widespread property damage".

University spokeswoman Janine Sikes said that the school can not control who will be permitted to attend the white nationalist event. "We are hoping this will go very smoothly and peacefully".
