The sexist, homophobic, bigot “funny guy” Gavin McInnes was chosen as a guest for a Fox News discussion of drafting women into the military. Despite previously attacking women as weak, now McInnes seemed to think they don't suffer enough.
In the past, McInnes has said that women are “less ambitious” and that he thinks “this is sort of God’s way – this is nature’s way of saying women should be at home with the kids. They’re happier there!” Even worse, he told a female Fox News contributor, “You just said you’re single, you don’t have a boyfriend. You’re what, you’re celibate…Look, you’re miserable. You would be so much happier with kids around you tonight. Imagine coming home, ‘Mommy’s home!’”
He has also said that “Equality is a myth,” and “Women are not as strong as men. They can’t even hold their booze as well.”
But now, McInnes thinks women should be drafted, not because they are equal but because they have it too easy.
MCINNES: They want equality for everything fun. They want to be equal in movies and desserts and parties. How about you’re equal in sanitation? How about you have to go down into the sewers and remove rat kings from blocked pipes? How about you go to war…
...Equality sucks. By every metric, men have it worse off. We’re more likely to get raped, if you include prison. We’re more likely to be assaulted, we’re more likely to die, we’re more likely to commit suicide.
Raw Story notes:
While it’s true that more men are raped in prison because the U.S. inmate population is overwhelmingly male, women are more likely to be sexually assaulted by both prison staff and other inmates than men.
A 2014 Bureau of Justice Statistics report found that “[b]etween 2009 and 2011, females represented about 7% of all state and federal prison inmates, but accounted for 22% of inmate-on-inmate victims and 33% of staff-on-inmate victims.”
By the way, it’s not just women McInnes hates on. He has smeared the poor, too:
MCINNES: Have you seen the poor? They’re gigantic. They’re overfed. There’s enough food and enough clothes in America. We’re full. I’d love to meet (a hungry child). I can’t talk to them, they’re too big. They can’t get off their chair. …Have you ever seen a skinny, poor American child?
This model of tolerance has also smeared gays as “the least tolerant group in modern America. It’s almost like Sharia law here.”
Media Matters wrote about McInnes:
McInnes currrently writes for Taki’s Magazine, a “paleoconservative” website that publishes overtly racist articles including ones by neo-confederates. At Taki’s, McInnes has referred to Asian-Americans as “slopes” and “riceballs,” suggested Muslims are “stupider” and “more violent” due to inbreeding, defended blackface because some minstrel shows were “just mimicking black people” and “fun,” backed the racist comments of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson, and argued that to yell the n-word at someone is “not racist” but “just very rude.” He also owns his own website, StreetCarnage.com, where he defended Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s racist comments because Bundy was just “wonder[ing]” if African-Americans were better off under slavery. In 2013, 18 Milling Rising gave him a “Lifetime Achievement Award in Hipster Racism,” a brand of racism marked by making “ironically” racist “jokes.”
Oh, and Gutfeld is a big fan of McInnes.
