The Best Musical Memes of Alt-Right Founder Richard Spencer Getting Punched in the Face

Perhaps by now you've seen the video of Richard Spencer getting punched in the face by a black-clad antifa during the Women's March on Washington this past weekend. If you haven't, watch the full video here.

Spencer, for those not in the know, is the man credited with coining the term "alt-right," a euphemistic term for white supremacists. Whether Spencer is a neo-Nazi remains a subject of debate, but the distinction between a white nationalist and a Nazi is, for most intents and purposes, a distinction without a difference. After all, Spencer is on the record quoting Nazi propaganda, questioning if Jews are people, and overall advocating for the supremacy of white people. To paraphrase some folk wisdom, if it acts like a Nazi, talks like a Nazi, and salutes like a Nazi, then the answer is right in front of you.

In a Periscope video after the incident, Spencer said that "I’m afraid this is going to become the meme to end all memes." Well, he might be right. After the punch, internet denizens moved to action, remixing the clip of Spencer taking one on the greasy Aryan cheekbone and sharing the videos far and wide.
