Proud Boys Founder Gavin McInnes: ‘Radical Leftist Journalists Are To Blame For Domestic Terrorism, Not Patriots’
Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes is blasting the fake news media after a series of hit pieces have attempted to blame the pro-Western fraternal group for creating Nazis.
Two articles recently published by Vice – For Some, Joining the Proud Boys Was a Stop on the Way to Neo-Nazi Terror and A Proud Boys Lawyer Wanted to Be a Nazi Terrorist – used the private chat messages of individuals who were blacklisted by the Proud Boys for their extremist beliefs as proof that the organization incubates the beliefs that they explicitly reject.
In one of the hit pieces, Vice profiled former Proud Boys lawyer Jason Lee Van Dyke, who has been disavowed by the group for years. Vice noted that Van Dyke “accused McInnes of creating the group solely “to make money” while being “not willing to do anything” violent” before becoming affiliated with more dangerous groups in their biased article.
In another hit piece, Vice profiled individuals who were booted from the Proud Boys due to their radicalism. Even though the Proud Boys explicitly reject their extreme beliefs, Vice said the Proud Boys “attracted eventual members of a more staunchly terroristic organization with a penchant for the tenets of the Third Reich.” Vice added that “affiliation with the Proud Boys was an entry point into a wider fascist ecosystem” for these rejects and claimed that “some Proud Boys have taken on the aesthetics of the far-right.”
McInnes spoke to Big League Politics in order to dispel Vice’s propaganda. He noted that Vice published the lie that the Proud Boys were called an extremist group by the FBI, which even the Washington Post has dispelled. McInnes believes that the fake news media is radicalizing people while the Proud Boys give them a better path.
“These radical leftist journalists keep searching for reasons guys snap and go full on domestic terrorist but it’s them. THEY are the catalyst. Constantly calling innocent men Nazis and blaming them for the world’s problems and saying their history is shameful often turns a man into the very monster he’s accused of being,” he explained.
“Proud Boys do the opposite. We rescue patriots and show them they can be proud without succumbing to radical politics. If journalist activists are looking for the bad guy, they need only look in the mirror,” McInnes added.
McInnes stated that the lies of the fake news can radicalize people on the Left as well. In addition to ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution, one domestic terrorist used leftist smear merchants as a justification for a terrorist attack against conservative Christians.
“Just like the Southern Poverty Law Center calling the Family Research Council a hate group and getting a man shot, they create hate where there is none and it’s dangerous,” McInnes said.
“Why don’t they do any other “hate?” What about the Aryan Nations? What about the anti-Semitism of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam? What about the Black Hebrew Israelites murdering Jews all over NY and NJ? The BHI started that thing with the Covington Catholic School kids but the media edited them out,” he added.
Big League Politics has reported about the Proud Boys rapidly gaining steam with President Donald Trump giving the group an endorsement of sorts on the campaign trail:
The Proud Boys, a pro-Trump fraternal organization that has been maligned falsely as white supremacist, are making fun of former vice president Joe Biden after he repeatedly called them the “poor boys” at last night’s presidential debate.
“He says about the Poor Boys, last time we were on stage here, he said, ‘I told them to ‘stand down and stand ready,’” a confused and disheveled Biden said at the debate…
Proud Boy leaders also got a kick out of Slow Joe’s gaffe, using Biden’s lack of cranial power to promote viral memes and publicize their patriotic organization.
“We live rent free in Joe Biden’s head. At least we know there’s one good thing inside that empty demented old man’s head,” wrote former Infowars reporter Joe Biggs, now a prominent Proud Boys organizer, on the alternative free speech platform Parler.
Proud Boys chairman Enrique Tarrio said: “Keep the change Joe…I rather be poor then be a filthy communist.”
… Despite the institutional and systemic oppression they have experienced, the Proud Boys remain on the front lines against leftist extremists at war with the Bill of Rights and Constitution. These brave souls are cut from the same cloth as the founding-era revolutionaries.
The Proud Boys are an organization that is within the mainstream of the political zeitgeist. As more Americans grow tired of mob communism and want to fight back, the Proud Boys ranks will continue to swell, and there is nothing the media can do to stop it.
