Alt-right Richard Spencer deems Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI victory a win for 'white race'

Richard Spencer raised eyebrows on Sunday night, as he congratulated Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on their fifth franchise Super Bowl win and linked their victory to white nationalism.

"For the white race, it's never over," he wrote with a gif of Brady locking lips with his wife, Gisele Bundchen.

The president of the National Policy Institute and co-editor of AltRight.com is known for his white nationalist beliefs, and made headlines last month when he was punched on the street at President Trump's inauguration.

Spencer noted his fan status for the Patriots, saying, "I was born in Boston, Mass. I'm proud of the NFL's Whitest team."

He shared more excitement around the New England squad's historic come back in a storm of tweets with the theme of linking #PatsNation to Trump's 2016 election slogan to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain. He even named Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady as an "Aryan Avatar."

Spencer continued gloating throughout the evening, and was clearly ecstatic when the Patriots came back from a 25 point to deficit in what will be viewed as the greatest football -- and potential sports game -- come back of all time.
