Far Right ‘Proud Boys’ Founder Banned From YouTube Days After Being Booted From Conservative TV Network

 
 
 
Gavin McInnes is out.

YouTube has banned the founder of the Proud Boys, a far right wing self-described "chauvinist" organization labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

"McInnes had amassed more than 220,000 subscribers on YouTube before the ban, but now both his YouTube profile and channel on YouTube show up as deleted," The Daily Beast reports.

The YouTube ban comes just two days after McInnes was booted from his online conservative TV network gig at CRTV. The company merged with Glenn Beck's The Blaze, and McInnes found himself de-platformed one week later.

"McInnes’ YouTube ban, which follows earlier bans from Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, means he no longer has access to any major social-media platform."

In a viral video exposing McInnes and his Proud Boys (he recently claims to have resigned from the Proud Boys), McInnes describes the group he created:

"We will kill you," he says. "That's the Proud Boys in a nutshell."

McInnes (or one of the Proud Boys) also says in the video, "Fighting solves everything. We need more violence from the Trump people," and, "Trump supporters: Choke a motherfucker. Choke a bitch. Choke a tranny. Get your fingers around the windpipe."

The Southern Poverty Law Center reports that "rank-and-file Proud Boys and leaders regularly spout white nationalist memes and maintain affiliations with known extremists. They are known for anti-Muslim and misogynistic rhetoric. Proud Boys have appeared alongside other hate groups at extremist gatherings like the 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville."

"McInnes himself has ties to the racist right and has contributed to hate sites like VDare.com and American Renaissance, both of which publish the work of white supremacists," the SPLC adds.
