Richard Spencer says August 29, 2018 on JF Gariepy’s show: “Greg Conte’s not the person spreading this rumor. The origin of this whole thing is a basic misunderstanding and Greg and my growing apart the past three months. It was very frustrating for me… I know exactly the people who started promoting this, the Irony Bros first and then Luke Ford… The people who were there including Mike Enoch, who was literally right there, have disabused these people.”
* Ryan Faulk posts: “JF supports Richard Spencer on being opposed to free speech, on being for “white imperium”, and even supports Richard on talking to the media and doing live events. Before this debate, he did a video attacking me and said that this was going to be an “intervention” on me.
This debate was actually set up by Richard contacting JF. When I tried to get Richard’s contact from JF so I could talk to Richard directly and set something else up, JF just went silent. He would not give me Richard’s contact.
Don’t forget that Richard backed out of two debates prior to this that were going to be on this channel.
JF’s line that I just want the shekels is ridiculous for a few reasons:
1. My main channel isn’t monetized, and I have no paypal so streamlabs would be out of the question. I have no way to monetize this.
2. I offered to do the debate on some other neutral platform, such as the Ralph Retort and Metocast.
In addition, why does JF feel entitled to the money from this? I personally find the idea of him making money off of this disgusting. People shouldn’t go on these channels anymore. JF can’t produce compelling content on his own, and so he’s figured out a way to make money off others. It’s gross and it needs to be recognized as a kind of exploitation.
It’s a way of making “content” without the work of research and video editing, a kind of faux-content sausage-making.
And for people who say “bad look Ryan”, fair enough, but this is a way less bad than another skepticalheretic-like debacle, only on a stage 20 times larger. Which is what would have happened if I walked into this setup.
Obviously if I had figured this out sooner than 3 hours before the debate, and tried to set something else up with Richard sooner, that would have been better. But I didn’t so this is what happened.”
* “To be honest, the allegation that Richard Spencer seduced Greg’s girlfriend is very believable given what I know about his character. I had a couple friends who were in the periphery of Spencer’s sphere of influence. They said that Spencer openly cheated on his wife and had sex with female journalists who interviewed him. He didn’t even try to hide it. This was BEFORE the election. Also, Spencer glorifies a type of virile masculinity that promotes philandering, he loves James Bond for example. Hell even Greg Conte said you should have sex with other men’s wives if you perceive them to be weak. Looks like Greg got a tase of his own medicine and Spencer’s disloyal ways are starting to cause him trouble… I can’t think of a single leader on the left or right as incompetent as Spencer. Every project he starts gets run into the ground. He can’t even file paperwork on time to keep NPI as a non-profit. There’s no excuse for this. He has a trust fund that guarantees him 140k a year for doing absolutely nothing. Imagine if someone competent had that kind of funding? They could produce content nonstop, yet what the hell does Spencer even do?”
Here is Ryan’s excuse for his last minute cancellation: “JF Gariepy is saying I cancelled the debate with Richard Spencer. This is false. I told JF I didn’t want JF to be moderating and I didn’t want to do it on JF’s channel. I’m willing to debate Richard Spencer, just not in JF’s funhouse.”
Sad! JF Gariepy is an excellent moderator.
Ryan Faulk complained loudly in his recent video that Richard Spencer wouldn’t debate him. So Richard and Ryan agreed to debate on JF’s channel today and Ryan runs away at the last minute.
Ryan Faulk from the Alternative Hypothesis has cancelled the debate of tonight and won't be appearing on TPS to debate Richard Spencer. We'll see what we can talk about tonight to replace this awaited debate.

Monty Python did a skit about people like Ryan Faulk:
The Ballad of Brave Sir Robin
Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot.
He was not afraid to die, O brave Sir Robin!
He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways,
Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin!
He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp,
Or to have his eyes gouged out, and his elbows broken;
To have his kneecaps split, and his body burned away;
And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin!
His head smashed in and his heart cut out
And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged
And his nostrils raped and his bottom burned off
And his pen–
