You Will Not Replace Us is a white nationalist slogan coined by Identity Evropa. During 2017, the slogan gained popularity among members of the alt-right. The motto has been used by other members, including Richard B. Spencer.

Origin[edit]

According to the Jewish Civil Rights organization ADL, Damigo stated on camera during one protest of He Will Not Divide Us: “Shia LeBeouf, you will not replace us with your globalism.” Other members in the crowd were reported to have joined in and shouted "You will not replace us".[1][2]

Usage[edit]

In May 2017, Richard Spencer chanted the slogan at a rally protesting the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Virginia.[3][4][5] Posters were also reported carrying the message at Southern Methodist University,[6] and at Temple University.[7]
