Alt-right figurehead Richard Spencer got dragged out of a cab and glitter bombed by Antifa protesters at an anti-war demonstration on Saturday.

The Glittering

Spencer was in Washington, D.C. to protest President Trump’s missile strike against Syria. Surprisingly, many neo-Nazis and white nationalists are against involvement in Syria, and had hoped that Trump would take an interventionist foreign policy. They were disappointed, just as they were disappointed when Trump signed a bill to kill internet privacy.

This protest might have been an attempt by the alt-right to team up with the anti-war left. It didn’t work so well.

But while Spencer was leading a group of white nationalists in a pro-Assad demonstration, he was confronted by a group of counter-protesters, many of whom belonged to AntiFa, an anti-fascist group that advocates violence against neo-Nazis.

The counter-protesters surrounded Spencer and his crew and shouted at them.

Spencer hid behind police officers. When he tried to leave, someone hit him with a bag of glitter (seen below):
