Far-right extremist and founder of the “Proud Boys,” Gavin McInnes has seen his many calls for hate violence go viral by his opposition.
A video compilation of McInnes’ words created by Vic Berger IV has been viewed on Twitter more than 1.14 million times since it was posted. In it, McInnes discusses his creation of the “Proud Boys,” and his push for violence.
“I started this gang called the Proud Boys,” says McInnes in the video compilation of his words.
“We will kill you,” he continues. “That’s the Proud Boys in a nutshell.”
The “Proud Boys” recently took to the streets of New York after an event hosted by McInnis that included a reenactment of the 1960 murder of the leader of the Japanese Socialist Party. Thirty members of the group attacked bystanders two blocks away from the Metropolitan Republican Club, where McInnes had spoken.
“Fighting solves everything. We need more violence from the Trump people,” says McInnes in the clip, culled from a Gavin McInnes Show episode broadcast on CRTV.
Amongst his targets appear to be women and trans women.
“Trump supporters: Choke a motherfucker. Choke a bitch. Choke a tranny. Get your fingers around the windpipe,” McInnis is heard saying.
This is not the first time he has target transgender people: in 2014, after publishing an incendiary essay titled “Transphobia is Perfectly Natural,” McInnes was asked to take an indefinite leave of absence as Creative Officer of Rooster. McInnes claimed that the reaction to the piece was “fake hysteria.”
McInnis is the co-founder of VICE Media as well as a regular Fox News guest. He has a long history of provocative acts, but his push for violence and apparent racism, anti-Semitism, anti-Islam, and other views have out shadowed his past in comedy.
Please share this video. People need to understand how dangerous Gavin McInnes and his gang the Proud Boys are.

Kayleigh McEnany Says Trump ‘Very Likely’ Will Nominate New Supreme Court Justice Before Ruth Bader Ginsburg is Buried
White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany says President Donald Trump will announce his nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, mostly likely by Tuesday.

The date of her funeral, which will be a private ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, has not even been announced yet.
Asked if the nomination would be announced “before Wednesday,” she replied, “I think that’s very likely.”
MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Monday morning also hinted the announcement would come Tuesday.
President Trump says he will soon nominate a justice to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court.

Trump Says He Will Make SCOTUS Nomination Next Week – Appears He Will Use Seat to Strengthen Where He Is Weak in Polls
President Donald Trump says he will announce his nominee to replace Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg “next week.”
He made clear his primary deciding factors will be to help him in the polls.
Trump told reporters Saturday afternoon “most likely” he will choose a woman.
CNN reports he is leaning towards choosing a woman mostly because he is doing poorly in the polls with women.
Trump spoke about two women judges. He talked about Barbara Lagoa, noting she is Hispanic and from Florida. He is struggling in the polls with Hispanics and in Florida.
Reporters also asked about Amy Coney Barrett, a far right wing anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ extremist. Trump spoke positively about her as well. Reports say she is the current frontrunner.

Trump: Republicans Must Fill Supreme Court Seat ‘Without Delay’
President Donald Trump Saturday morning, barely 12 hours after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg passed away, announced his intention to fill her seat “without delay.”
The president said the Republican Party has been handed the “position of power and importance” to make decisions for those who elected them.
“We have this obligation,” he insisted, ignoring his obligation to balance decision-making by remembering he is president of the entire country, not just the red states.
.@GOP We were put in this position of power and importance to make decisions for the people who so proudly elected us, the most important of which has long been considered to be the selection of United States Supreme Court Justices. We have this obligation, without delay!
