Richard Spencer continues to go on fighting mode with his Twitter posts today. He, of course, did not let the day pass without giving his own strong take on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling against President Donald Trump's temporary travel ban for people from seven predominantly Muslim countries while his administration reviews and improves the vetting system.

Spencer showed no surprise for the unanimous decision of the three judges upholding earlier federal court's decision to halt Trump's executive order. But the known Trump supporter sees the unfavorable decision as both a challenge and opportunity nonetheless for the President to fulfill his passionate campaign promise of "draining the swamp" and a chance to truly declare "war" against the establishment.

Spencer tweeted in two consecutive posts: " The 9th Circuit decision represents the attack of the Deep State- the legal bureaucratic class against Trump's populism. In a way, I'm glad it happened. Trump will be resolved to " drain the swamp". This means war."

Trump has also earlier taken to Twitter to declare that the battle is far from over as he wish to see those who blocked his executive order in court- the highest court, that is. The Trump administration is set to bring the case to the Supreme Court where it expects to get a favorable decision.

In another matter, Spencer appears to be supporting the calls to boycott Netflix for deciding to air the series " Dear White People" widely believed to be prejudiced against American white people. The series being promoted by Netflix and slated to be shown in late April is based on a 2014 movie of the same title. Spencer has been retweeting posts by his supporters and followers advocating for the boycott of Netflix.

Netizens have complained that the forthcoming 10-part series will unjustly and dangerously promote racism and white genocide. They described it as "anti-white show" and decided to fight back by canceling their Netflix subscriptions and encouraging others to boycott the commercial content provider platform as well.

Showing of the trailer has also sparked anger not just against Netflix but series creator Justin Simien with calls for him "to go back to Africa". The strong backlash triggered massive #NoNetflix calls online for promoting an anti-white agenda. People started posting screen grab copies of their subscription cancellations and observers say this can ultimately hurt the profit of Netflix.

Spencer has retweeted posts calling for the Netflix boycott.
