DETROIT (AP) — Michigan State University on Thursday denied a request by a group headed by white nationalist Richard Spencer to rent space on the campus for a September event, following rejections by other large schools.The East Lansing school said in a statement the decision was made "due to significant concerns about public safety" and cited last weekend's "tragic violence" in Charlottesville, Virginia."While we remain firm in our commitment to freedom of expression, our first obligation is to the safety and security of our students and our community," the statement read.The University of Florida on Wednesday also denied a request by Spencer's National Policy Institute to rent space, as Texas A&M University had done.

- Texas A&M calls off planned white nationalist rally
By WILL WEISSERT, Associated Press - Monday Aug 14, 2017
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas A&M University late Monday called off a planned white supremacist rally on its campus next month, citing concerns of a "major security risk" following the demonstrations that turned deadly over the weekend in Virginia.The decision came amid bipartisan pressure from Texas' Republican-controlled Legislature, where lawmakers said protecting free speech was important, but rejecting hate even more so.A former A&M student named Preston Wiginton had been organizing a "white lives matter" rally in College Station, Texas, saying he was inspired by Saturday's "Unite the Right" rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, when a vehicle plowed into a group of counterprotesters, killing at least one and injuring 19.Spencer spoke at an A&M event in December, when he was met by hundreds of protesters, many of whom gathered at Kyle Field football stadium to hear music and speeches highlighting diversity and unity to counter Spencer's appearance."The First Amendment also allows us to respond in kind, to stand up and say what we believe as a society, as Americans and as Texans," Republican Sen. Charles Schwertner, whose district includes College Station, said of protests that had been planned in response to Wiginton's now-canceled rally.
