White nationalist Richard Spencer can’t even order a cheap drink

white supremacy poster Richard Spencer is having a bad week. Friday, his hate site altright.com was shut down by domain registrar GoDaddy for violating the company’s terms of service, then on Sunday, the hate merchant the credit card was declined in a bar in Montana where he was trying to order a $4.25 glass of Bulleit bourbon, perhaps to drown his sorrows after losing his homepage.

According to the Daily Beast, Spencer’s apparent problems with cash follow several lawsuits, both filed by and against him (the latter is for his involvement in the Unite the Right rally, which resulted in the death of counter-protester Heather Hayer) . For the latter case, Spencer had crowdfunded solicit funds for his legal defence.

And despite his issues with Spencer, Rommereim says he still wouldn’t stop him from coming back to the Far North. “I don’t like it, but I don’t want to cause a scandal,” remarks the bar owner.
