There are many articles claiming that Richard Spencer called for a "peaceful ethnic cleansing".
However, CNN says that Spencer denies this:
He once called for a "peaceful ethnic cleansing," a claim he denied during the interview with CNN. But when asked how he would go about removing non-white from America, he had this to say:
"We have experienced this mass migration of people" into the United States, Spencer said. "Therefore they could go home, you can go home again. ... They came here peacefully. They could leave peacefully."
Calling for an ethnic cleansing would match Spencers political views, and the answer to CNN seems to confirm that this is a policy he supports. But I was unable to find the source for that specific quote. The closest I could find was this:
Today, in the public imagination, “ethnic-cleansing” has been associated with civil war and mass murder (understandably so). But this need not be the case. 1919 is a real example of successful ethnic redistribution—done by fiat, we should remember, but done peacefully.
However, most articles surround the phrase with quotes, so I am assuming that it is a direct quote.
Has Richard Spencer called for a "peaceful ethnic cleansing" in those words?
