Hey everybody, sorry I’ve been incomunicada lately, because my health’s been kind of low and I’ve been tired and achey and trying to rest. But hey! I’m back, and here’s the not-quite-latest thing that’s caught my jaundiced eye:
You don’t have to watch the whole 36-minute rambling shit thing if you don’t want (I know I didn’t), but yes, it’s true: Gammon, in between schmoozing for schmackeroos (let’s hope he doesn’t get any) has quit his own hate group:
Proud Boys founder Gavin McInnes announced he is quitting the far-right group of “Western chauvinists” on Wednesday, claiming the move would help Proud Boys members facing assault and riot charges in New York City. “I am officially disassociating myself from the Proud Boys,” McInnes said in a video. “In all capacities, forever, I quit.” McInnes made the announcement a day after newly revealed police documents suggested that the FBI classifies the Proud Boys as an “extremist group.” Nine members of the group, along with some left-wing anti-fascist protesters, have been charged over an October attack that followed a McInnes speech in New York. Videos of the fight showed a large number of Proud Boys attacking a person on the ground and yelling homophobic slurs. “I’m told by my legal team and law enforcement that this gesture could help alleviate their sentencing” McInnes said. “Fine. At the very least, this will show jurors they are not dealing with a gang and there’s no head of operations.”
Oooooo, how ignominious. Remember how Gammon once swore up and down that the peebees would “never surrender”, right before he told the ones who beat up the protesters to give themselves up to the cops? Yeah, that happened.
And this was my response, more or less:
Yeah. Congrats, Gammon. Enjoy your brief moment of half-decent-personhood. I’m sure you’ll revert back to total fuckass soon enough. But for now, it’s been enjoyable to see you totally forced to walk back your Nazi-ass swagger and crawl a bit. When even The Beaverton is having trouble satirizing you, you know you’ve done (cough) good.
PS: A little late, but better than never, here’s Sam Seder’s hilarious takedown of Gammon and his white nonsense:
