Political Theater, 2019
March, 5th 2018. Richard Spencer's personal security team, The Traditional Worker's Party, colluded with Alt-Right Clowns at his speech at Michigan State University in Lansing, MI. The goal: to fill a room with clowns during his talk and shut out all other alt-right sympathizers. Despite the costumes, anti-facist protestors made no distinction between clowns and the racist TWP group during the “Stop Spencer at Michigan State University” protest. Once the clown costumes were removed the performers re-entered the protest space alongside anti-facists without any notice.
