Richard Spencer Slunk Home To U.S. After Polish Authorities Kicked Him Out

    White nationalist leader Richard Spencer was stopped by authorities in Europe this week while attempting to make a surprise appearance at a conference in Sweden for young white nationalists, Think Progress reported Thursday.

    Spencer seemed to confirm this on Twitter, where he shared a Swedish tweet from an alt-right supporter lamenting that Spencer had been banned in Europe because of his radical views. It also suggests that he addressed the conference remotely.

    During a layover in Poland, he was stopped by authorities, who told him to return to the U.S.

    It was reported last year that Spencer had been banned from entering 26 European countries, including Poland and Sweden.
