National Policy Institute president Richard Spencer and NPI have been labeled white supremacist, although he reportedly rejects the term. The Anti-Defamation League says NPI is a white supremacist organization and Spencer is a white supremacist.
Spencer told the Associated Press, “When we lost it, it did feel like persecution, to be honest.”
The IRS automatically revokes tax-exempt status from organizations that don't file tax returns for three years.
"The National Policy Institute raised $697,267 in tax-deductible contributions from 2007 through 2015," the AP notes.
On its website The National Policy Institute says it is "an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States and around the world."
"Heritage" is a dog whistle term that can refer to white supremacism.
"Richard Spencer and NPI are at the forefront of Alt-Right activism," the organization states.
Spencer rebranded racist hate ideology into the term "alt-right" in 2010.
