In September 2017 Mark Levin gave Gavin McInnes a platform within his CR/CRTV stable as a “host.” McInnes has been hosting a show on CRTV called “Get Off My Lawn,” since September 2017.
Let that sink in. Since September 2017.
“Unite the Right” was August 2017.
Disclaimer: I am a firm, unequivocal advocate of the First Amendment. “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Before we begin, let us establish some Constitutional Awareness I think we can all for the most part agree on.
I think that’s pretty clear, obviously others do not. So I guess it’s a good job I’m gonna take some time to do some ‘splainin for them. Many times when I execute, ummm, ‘offensive countermeasures’ against a target I am accused by info-hipsters of violating that targets ‘1st Amendment’ rights to freedom of expression, or speech.
This is an impossibility.
You see, the 1st Amendment was written and designed to prevent the government (ie unapplicable to private citizens) from infringing on the freedoms of speech and expression of individual citizens and/or groups of citizens. As a private citizen (ie not the government) it’s wholly impossible for me to violate another’s 1st Amendment rights. My ‘offensive countermeasures’ are as much my freedom of expression as whatever it is the target did to invoke my response. To say otherwise negates their original argument. In essence as an individual I am free to call another individual out all day long, without any violation of his freedoms provided by the Bill of Rights. Awesome isn’t it?Jester’s Court; Constitutional Awareness Program
A surface swim bio of McInnes’ life is there for anyone who is interested. It is a long line of fits and starts of a Canadian immigrant whose own failures are only because of everyone else’s fault. He ‘writes,’ he’s ‘an actor,’ he’s ‘a comedian,’ he ‘played in a band.’
He found a new niche in Steve Bannon’s and Richard Spencer’s the “
Alt-Right” excuse me, the “ lite-Right,” oh wait, no, it is now the “New Right,” he prefers, provocateur.
“The Gavin McInnes Show premiered on Compound Media on 15 June. McInnes is a former contributor to Canadian far-right portal The Rebel Media and a regular on conspiracy theorist media platform Infowars’ The Alex Jones Show, and Fox News’ Red Eye, The Greg Gutfeld Show, and The Sean Hannity Show. He writes for Taki’s Magazine and previously wrote for TruthRevolt, Death and Taxes, The Federalist, American Renaissance, and VDARE.”
VDARE. Know what that stands for? More on this in a minute.
In December 2015, on his now banned Twitter account, McInnes wrote ‘in every case that he knows’ about domestic abuse “was the result of some cunt trying to ruin [a man’s] life.” Before that, he previously had written women “want to be downright abused.”
In 2016, on his radio show, he referred to Jada Pinkett Smith as a “monkey actress.” But, according to him, he’s not a racist.
I highly doubt it would be going too far out on a limb to think Gavin McInnes may just be one of the original Incels, the only difference being the Incels of today hold themselves apart from ‘men’s rights movements’ with fatalism and defeatism, whereas, McInnes says his “Proud Boys’ are a men’s “fraternal organization.” Both, however, express and emote misogynistic rhetoric and encourage violence, radicalizing their followers and members and fellow travelers with extremist bigotry and racist speech.
McInnes, along with Shane Smith, co-founded VICE, Vice Media and Vice Magazine in 1994. He is supposedly the ‘godfather’ of “hipsterdom,” known as “one of hipsterdom’s primary architects.” A label, this writer posits, he more than likely promoted himself about himself, mainly because it is nothing more than a made-up, bullshit word.
According to the Urban Dictionary [emphasis mine]:
Refers to the hierarchy within the sub-culture of hipsters.
Being a part of this hierarchy often has to do with ‘being in the know’: knowing what is popular at the moment with art, music and fashion. The hierarchy culminates into a top 1% of people who are what marketing companies refer to as the ‘trend-setters’, the people that define what’s cool and that everyone else inevitably follows. Hipsterdom is generally confined to white people between the ages of 18 to 30, often middle class, often educated in Liberal Arts.Urban Dictionary; Feb 2008
Hell, McInnes probably ‘contributed’ to that definition himself, especially the “is generally confined to white people,” because this is where McInnes’ beliefs appear to rear their head in all his incantations.
In 2002, as a ‘contributor’ to his Vice webzine, he spouts off in an interview with the New York Press he was ‘pleased that most Williamsburg hipsters were white.’ Vice had to apologize for his comments. They officially ‘parted’ ways in 2008, McInnes claimed in a 2013 interview with The New Yorker, because of the ‘corporate influence’ over Vice’s content, saying, “marketing and editorial being enemies had been the business plan.”
That is Williamsburg, Virginia McInnes is referring to which pleases him that “most Williamburg hipsters were white.”
VDARE stands for Virginia Dare, which refers to the story about the allegedly first English child born of settlers in 1587 who settled in the Virginia territory, hence, the name Virginia, who disappeared along with all the others of the Roanoke Colony.
VDARE was founded by Peter Brimelow and is billed as a platform primarily about anti-immigration. For Brimelow, former National Review editor, it is written, “Anglo-Saxon Americans and their culture are in danger of disappearing like Virginia Dare.”
Go ahead, I dare you to square how a bunch of immigrates are the very basis of a primarily anti-immigration platform.
In their twisted minds, it is all perfectly fine, you see, because they were white. Those who are immigrating now? Are not.
VDARE’s contributor list, along with Gavin McInnes, reads like a veritable who’s who of White Supremacists, White Nationalists, racists and bigots and conspiracy nutjobs. Brimelow freely admits he gives them a platform, but claims he is none of those, even as his own fiction book Alien Nation ends with the “last white family flees Los Angeles, which has been overrun by the crime and pollution caused by its non-white residents.” Their logo is the head of a white doe.
In 2016, McInnes ‘founded’ “Proud Boys.” He refers to it as a “fraternal organization” who all swear loyalty as “proud Western Chauvinists,” allegedly in bizarre initiation ceremonies, who only get together once a month for a beer.
“Unite the Right,” which resulted in three deaths, one when James Fields murdered Heather Heyer and injured 19 others after plowing his car into one group of pedestrians, then going in reverse, plowed into more, and other eruptions of violence, main organizer is Jason Kessler who was a Proud Boy member.
After the death of Heather Heyer, Kessler, in a now deleted tweet, on August 19 2017, is the pig who wrote: “Heather Heyer was a fat, disgusting Communist. Communists have killed 94 million. Looks like it was payback time.”
McInnes’ “fraternal order” of “proud Western chauvinists” has tied them with the “Fraternal Order of Alt Knights” (FOAK), who serve as the “tactical defensive arm” of the Proud Boys.
In this now deleted tweet it shows “#ProudBoys and #AltRight headed to downtown #Charlottesville.”
But he is not the “Alt-Right, those are just people who “wants to start infiltrating our meetings,” because he said, it was an attempt to sabotage them because they would not join the “unite the right.”
He goes into a long explanation on his website last August, after the unite the right, to explain to everyone. Those are not their guy’s he says, they just dress like them. They’re just saboteurs.
Which brings it full circle.
“In a video posted to YouTube,” the Guardian reported, “on Wednesday, Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes publicly claimed to have quit the far-right group.” A move, the Guardian says, that “came two days after their publication “exclusively revealed that the FBI had categorized the Proud Boys as “an extremist group with ties to white nationalism, in a briefing to Washington state law enforcement.”
“As of today, November 21st, 2018, I am officially disassociating myself from the Proud Boys, in all capacities, forever,” I quit,” McInnes said in the video. “I was told to use the term ‘stepping down’ but I refused because that makes no sense. I was never the leader, only the founder. Although, the media will likely say, ‘Gavin McInnes Steps Down as Leader of Extremist Hate Group Proud Boys’ because that’s how they roll.”
“I do this reluctantly because I see it as the greatest fraternal organization in the world but rumors and lies and bad journalism has made its way to the court system and the NYC9—the Proud Boys arrested after I did a talk here in New York—are facing serious charges,” he said.
McInnes said his legal team and law enforcement told him that stepping away from the group could help to alleviate the sentencing of those who were arrested.
“At the very least, this will show jurors they are not dealing with a gang and there is no head of operations,” he said.Newsweek; Nov 22 2018
McInnes is referring to the incident on Oct 12 when he and members of his Proud Boys traveled to NYC to give “a speech at the Metropolitan Republican Club, a bastion of establishment conservatism on the Upper East Side,” according to a New York Times report about the incident McInnes refers to. Those who were arrested, which he supposedly helped to arrange to turn themselves in that he is proposing he is ‘helping’ by saying he “disassociating” with them.
How would he do that if he does not associate with them? Things that make one say, hmmm, sure thing, Gavin.
The police said the violence started after one of the leftist protesters threw a plastic bottle at the Proud Boys, who had with them members of far-right groups, like the 211 Bootboys and Batalion 49.
It remains unclear from a surveillance camera’s videotape of the melee that the police released whether the bottle was thrown before or after the Proud Boys rushed the anti-fascist demonstrators.New York Times; Oct 19 2018
“…who had with them members of far-right groups, like the 211 Bootboys and Batalion 49.” That would be a part of the FOAK, McInnes’ “tactical defensive arm.”
The idiots Anti-whateverthehell they want to call themselves fascists took McInnes’s bait, just like they always do, when McInnes announced loud and proud the “Proud Boys” were going to be in NYC. They had been making noise, calling, harassing, “leaving threatening voicemail” at the event center the week leading up to McInnes’ ‘speech.’
Why do they take the bait? Because they are the mirror image on the Proud Boys and their FOAK.
Not one iota of an ounce of difference between either one of these gangs of wannabe thugs. They each take each other’s bait because this is what they both want. Two sides of the same coin.
Mark Levin knows this. Everyone knows this. You cannot be a political pundit in North America and not know this.
Mark Levin knew full well what the Proud Boys, and Gavin McInnes specifically, were associated with doing all throughout the year leading up to and including the “Unite the Right” White Supremacist, White Nationalists Rally’s “a day of rage, hate, violence, and death,” in August 2017, as Richard Spencer lead them the night before with their torchlight march, “chanting, “White lives matter!” “You will not replace us!” and “Jews will not replace us!”
Mark Levin launched Gavis McInnes’s first show on his platform Conservative Review TV in September 2017.
Mark Levin had a baby cow, screaming and caterwauling when Twitter permanently suspended McInnes’ account in the lead up to “Unite the Right 2,” which McInnes and Proud Boys and their FOAK were once again preparing to attend. Everyone knew it.
Everyone that is, supposedly, except Glenn Beck who lives under a rock and decided he would interview Gavin McInnes on August 13, 2018.
“Although I have seen some of your work and I think you are very, very funny, although people have said bad things about you, in today’s world, you never know especially when Twitter decides to ban someone…” Beck begins.
“Twitter bans CRTV host Gavin McInnes, Proud Boys as ‘violent extremist’”
Notice, McInnes tells Beck he likes violence, but when pressed about what it is he does? Evasion, misdirection. It is about “others,” the DNC, etc., with links to “Globalist money,” who see “Antifa,” McInnes claims, “as their paramilitary wing.”
So says the man who associates with his own FOAK. The irony. He can’t quite pull it off, not to someone listening with an ear who knows who and what he does. But Glenn Beck plays it as someone who has failed to do his homework for his segment.
Interesting. Glenn Beck did not do his homework? Has he really reverted back to that person? Are we to believe neither he, nor anyone on his staff have absolutely no clue who McInnes is, what he has done? No deep dive for Beck and his crew on this one? Beck doesn’t quite pull it off either.
As for the Proud Boys now being labeled by the FBI as an extremist group with ties to White Nationalism.
The Guardian found out about a Clark County Sheriff’s Memo posted by Property of the People and The Sparrow Project: “An Internal Affairs investigation document from the Clark County Sheriff’s Office in Vancouver, WA explicitly stating the FBI considers the “Proud Boys to be an extremist group with ties to white nationalism.”
It basically boils down to an internal investigation into one of their Deputy’s Erin Willey who posed herself in a selfie with her Proud Boy Girls gear.
According to the internal report their logo consists of “a lipstick and a switch blade knife crossing each other to form an X. There is blood dripping off the knife. The X symbol has been interpreted by activists on both sides as a way for an individual or group to communicate their solidarity with the League of the South (LOS), a far-right southern nationalist group.”
It is was determined, the investigation says, “that Erin’s ex-boyfriend Proud Boy member Graham Jorgensen was the source of the photo being sent to an area newspaper “as a form of retaliation because Erin ended their relationship.”
The internal Sheriff’s memo states, “The FBI categorizes the Proud Boys as an extremist group with ties to White Nationalism. The FBI has warned local law enforcement that the Proud Boys are actively recruiting in the Pacific Northwest and that some in the group have contributed to the escalation of violence at political rallies held on college campuses, and in cities like Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington.”
Enjoy your Proud Boi, Levin. It is not like you, or any of your stable, have any credibility left to lose. You all squandered that long ago. Choices have consequences.
Levin mocked Romney on his own Twit page, saying, “Romney hopes to build his credibility with the media by attacking Trump. No statesman. Just another wannabe.”
Who is Mark Levin hoping to build his credibility up with by associating with Gavin McInnes?
Mark Levin and his stable are the “New Right’s” version of the left’s “Women’s March” Orgs who associate with the likes of and give platform to Louis Farrakhan and Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory and Bob Bland.
Lie down with dogs, don’t cry foul when you rise up with their fleas.
