My friend Paul Fromm reports from the NPI conference in Budapest:
“NPI’s Richard B. Spencer is being deported from Hungary and banned for 3 years from all Schengen countries, he writes from jail.
Despite police state efforts to shut down a conference of racial realists, the meeting proceeded with a somewhat reduced programme tonight, at a location that was a closely guarded secret. Over 100 attendees from across the European world gathered for a sumptuous Hungarian dinner and gave standing ovations to former Croatian diplomat Tom Sunic and American Renaissance founder and author Jared Taylor. …”
Note: In other words, the NPI conference went down like the 2010 Amren conference in DC, but without Spencer, Dugin, and Vardon among the speakers, Bill Regnery among those on the guest list, and with Arktos and Jobbik withdrawing their support at the last moment, and Marton Gyongyosi throwing NPI under the bus.
Here in the United States, it is not a big deal for an organizer to lose a hotel reservation due to “anti-racist” pressure. It’s usually not that hard to find an alternative venue or reroute attendees at the last moment to some private location like a restaurant. Spencer put himself in this position by holding the NPI conference in a European county where he could get pinched by the full force of an entire government.
