White nationalist told 'not' to come to Penn State

The President of the National Policy Institute is not going to speak at Penn State.   University President Eric Barron made the announcement yesterday saying in part, "In light of the recent violence and tragedy in Charlottesville, Penn State has evaluated a request for Richard Spencer to speak on the campus this fall.  Penn State fully supports the right of free speech and encourages its expression in thoughtful and respectful ways, even when we strongly disagree with the opinions expressed. But the First Amendment does not require our University to risk imminent violence."
