“Unemployable” white supremacist files suit, gets employed again

Yes, that’s our (proud) boy, showing his whole ass. Something he loves to do, and often. (Stuffing things up it, too…but no homo, bro.)

And here’s another instance of him showing his whole ass, which landed in my inbox courtesy of the SPLC the other day:

Dear Sabina,

We’ve just been sued by the founder of a hate group – for doing our job.

Gavin McInnes in 2016 started the Proud Boys, a group of young men who call themselves “Western chauvinists.” Some members have engaged in violent street brawls and appeared in public alongside white supremacist groups.

Ten of its members were charged with riot and attempted assault after attacking a group of anti-racist protesters in New York in October.

Last year, we named Proud Boys a hate group – a well-earned label.

Now, McInnes claims we’ve defamed him. He’s blaming us because he’s been kicked off internet platforms like PayPal, Facebook and Twitter.

This is a man who has a history of inflammatory statements about Muslims, women and the transgender community.

He has said U.S. Senator Cory Booker, who is black, “is kind of like Sambo.” He has claimed that “[t]his whole idea of white nationalists and white supremacy is a crock. Such people don’t exist.” And he has written that white nationalist leader Richard Spencer, who famously gave a Nazi salute during a pro-Trump rally after the 2016 election, “comes across as perfectly reasonable in conversation.”

McInnes’ suit against us has no merit. The fact that he’s upset tells us that we’re doing our job exposing hate and extremism.

He’s not the only one trying to deny us our First Amendment rights. We’ve been sued by multiple hate groups who are angry that we’ve exposed their hateful rhetoric.

It won’t work. With the support of people like you, we’re going to continue calling out hatemongers whenever and wherever we see them.

To paraphrase FDR, judge us by the enemies we’ve made.

For a man who styles himself as a “humorist”, somebody sure seems to have no sense of humor about being accurately pegged for what he really is: a chronically unfunny, cranky, middle-aged white supremacist.

And for the self-styled founding father of hipsterdom, he also lacks any sense of irony about the fact that he’s been rehired by his old employer, despite declaring himself to be “unemployable” as a result of being accurately pegged as a hate-gang founder. Probably because, unlike O. Henry, he doesn’t understand what irony actually means.

There are 61 whole pages of his ass-wankery right here.
