Richard Spencer er utestengt fra Polen og dermed resten av Schengen-området.

Richard Spencer, a major player in white nationalism, has been banned from entering 26 nations in Europe.

Poland’s state-run news agency on Wednesday said that authorities there had blocked Spencer from Europe’s visa-free Schengen area for five years.

PAP cited unnamed sources close to Poland’s Foreign Ministry for the news about Spencer, and a source close to the agency confirmed to The Associated Press that the ban had taken effect.

Spencer er en hvit nasjonalist og har laget begrepet «alt right». Han fikk mye reklame etter demonstrasjonen og sammenstøtene i Charlottesville.

EU betrakter Polen som høyreorientert, men nå avviser likevel myndighetene en hvit nasjonalist.

Polish Foreign Minister Witold Waszczykowski last month called Spencer someone “who defames what happened during World War II, defames the Holocaust.”

“He should not appear publicly, and especially not in Poland,” Waszczykowski added of the 39-year-old American.
