The Art of Fake News: The Richard Spencer University of Florida Incident




By Noel Jones (United States of America)

Tickets were not diligently passed out at the University of Florida for white supremacist Richard Spencerís speech (on October 19, 2017). That scheme was diverted when Alt-right groups heard that local bars were offering free drinks in exchange for tickets to stop the growing crowd from attending the event, I received information from a source that a group of locals had plans to obtain all the tickets to stop people from attending the event. There is a large faction in the university town of Gainesville that does not want Richard Spencer here, the atmosphere here is so unsure that the Governor of Florida has declared a state of emergency. What we will focus on here is this state of emergency, that other news sources appear not to see, this will not be your typical news story.


Officials have put units in place with security details they can not reveal...


First we will reveal here what we have witnessed that they can not reveal; hidden in plain sight was one of those things we saw at the Richard Spencer protest (10-19-2017) in front of University of Florida's Phillip Center? This device was attached to a tree, was it a sonic device?

More than half a million dollars is being spent on security. With Governor Rick Scott's declaration of a state of emergency, additional funds for security have been provided, bringing the cost up to $600,000. Local, state, and federal agencies have set up to make sure the controversial event does not get out of hand, hoping to prevent chaos and violence like in Charlottesville over the summer?

"Not being prepared is not an option," said Alachua County Sheriff's Office Spokesperson Art Forgey. "By the Governor signing a declaration of emergency, it has allowed us to have other units and things we might need readily available at our disposal."

As stated before, officials have put units in place with security details they cannot release. An area outside the Phillips Center is assigned for protesters, with a list of prohibited items including water bottles or balloons. The Gainesville Police Department and the University of Florida Police Department compiled the list with the help of officials in Charlottesville and Berkeley. "This is based on what people have used as weapons or otherwise so that is why the list is such that it is," said UF Spokesperson Janine Sikes.


In Turlington Plaza, students are preparing in their own way by writing messages of unity and hope on a wooden wall.


UF student Taigo Lopez said, "As long as the people that are protesting are in control of what they're actions are, there shouldn't be any problems."


Another student, Zachary Ray, who plans to protest, wrote, "We can't let history repeat itself." "I feel like I need to be there to speak out against the hate and the violence and these really dangerous ideas that are being spread on my campus," said Ray.
