A member of the white supremacist group “alt-right,” is getting torched on social media after suggesting there needs to be a “WAACP.”
Preston Wiginton, a Donald Trump supporter and self-described white supremacist, recently defended his decision to invite white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, head of of the hate group “alt-right”, to speak at Texas A&M University in December.
Speaking to the university’s newspaper “The Battalion,” Wiginton pulled the “reverse racism” card, saying, “If we look at the NAACP, black people have the right to have that. Why can’t white people have a WAACP?”
So, NAACP stands for “National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.”
Incredibly, Wiginton seems to think the “N” in NAACP stands for “Negro.” One can only imagine what he thinks the “AACP” stands for. A “White Association for the Advancement of Colored People” would actually be a pretty good idea, though. Who wants to break it to him?
As you could expect, Wiginton’s obvious ignorance was thoroughly called out on Twitter:
Richard Spencer is still scheduled to speak at the university this week, according to media reports.
