COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KIAH) — "We won. And we got to define what America means," controversial speaker Richard Spencer said in a speech on campus at Texas A&M. "America, at the end of the day, belongs to white men."
Spencer is known as a radical leader of the Alt-right movement and a white supremacist.
"I am here, first and foremost, to talk to students," Spencer said. "I am very curious about what life is like for them in 2016."
The university did not want the Spencer event to happen on campus, but because A&M is a public university they could not ban Spencer's visit.
The university stated that Spencer's views are "in direct conflict with our core values."
"Hey, hey, ho, ho— Richard Spencer has to go!" protesters chanted on campus Tuesday night.
Activists from across the Lone Star State joined forces with Aggie students to protest the controversial white nationalist on campus.
"I'm here today to protest the presence of Richard Spencer and the Alt-right movement on our campus," Caitlyn Miles said. "I'm here to demonstrate that the Bryan-College Station and Texas A&M community is a united community through our differences-- and that we respect people of different socio-economic backgrounds, cultural backgrounds, religious backgrounds...people of different races and ethnicities-- and that we will not tolerate messages of hate."
"When there's a threat to one of us, there's a threat to everyone," another protester, Adam Davies, said.
"Today is about taking a stand against white supremacy and calling the Alt-eight out for what it really is: returning neo-Nazis and white supremacists who hate people of other races and other faiths," protester Jane Thrardi said.
There were multiple protest areas on campus including a silent protest in a courtyard and even a graduate student protest.
One protest is called 'Beat The Hell Out of Hate.'
"We have a responsibility to take measured actions to counter white nationalism...white supremacy," Texas A&M graduate student Nicholas Meindl insisted.
While the protesters pledge to keep their outrage peaceful, they all stand united against the Alt-right.
