‘Proud Boys’ leader Gavin McInnes mocks gay man with cerebral palsy
‘Proud Boys’ leader Gavin McInnes has mocked a disabled gay man.
McInnes was one of the co-founders of Vice Media.
Since splitting from Vice, McInnes has developed increasingly extreme far-right views, and in 2016 he founded the pro-Trump, white nationalist ‘Proud Boys’ organisation.
The far-right activist was this week caught mocking a gay man with cerebral palsy – eerily reminiscent of the time that Donald Trump mocked a disabled reporter.
Media Matters picked up the clip from his show Get Off My Lawn on alt-right news service CRTV.
In the clip McInnes ridicules Ryan Haddad, a man who featured in a HuffPost video about what it’s like to be gay and with cerebral palsy.
Mcinnes says: “I’m here with a gentleman. He appears to be very unattractive. He is gay, and he has cerebral palsy. And his beef is that people don’t want to have sex with him.
“So this guy has cerebral palsy and is upset no one wants to sleep with him. He should be considered totally hot and popular.”
He claims: “We genetically are not attracted to the severely handicapped. My heart goes out to the severely handicapped, but part of attraction is based on evolution and breeding, and when we see someone who is severely handicapped, we go, ‘I won’t breed with you’.
“Now, gays don’t breed anyway, but they still have the same sort of wiring. Sorry, it’s not attractive.
McInnes continues: “How do you not know that gays are shallow? It’s as true as lesbians are not shallow. If you’re a lesbian, they have lesbian bed death, right.
“Lesbian couples, they stop having sex after the first year or so because you have to pull out too many toys and stuff.
“So they end up just being plump and they wear makeup and flannel shirts and stuff and Timberlands. And they have nice dinners for their friends, and they’re very sweet, except the ones who antagonize Christians and make them bake a cake and have a wedding.
“Gays on the other hand are always on the market because men are always horny, so you need a six pack. You need to work out. If you’re going bald, you got to get hair plugs. You got to be buff. You got to try.
“You can’t have cerebral palsy. I’m sorry that shallow men don’t want to screw you. That’s like going to the Jersey Shore and being obese and saying, ‘Here in the Jersey Shore community because I don’t gym, tan, and whatever the other one was — what is it again? — laundry. Because I don’t gym, tan, laundry, these Jersey Shore chicks don’t want me.’
“Yeah, that’s the culture. How do you not know that?”
He adds:”Now you’re on stage saying, ‘Gays don’t wanna have sex with me.’ And then we sit back, and we see you in your walker. I don’t understand what the endgame here is. What are we supposed to do? Do you want me to make out with you? Huh? I’ll give you a kiss.”
McInnes continues: “You’re not graceful. You’re not elegant. Your feet are strapped into plastic heels, and you use a walker. So this is this guy’s problem, he’s trying to pretend horniness is some sort of medical trait, and he needs to rub one out with a dude.
“And he’s being denied that by some sort of evil prejudice. I mean, is there a thing called beauty anymore? Some people are less attractive than others.
“If you have cerebral palsy and you are already an ugly, small gay guy, people aren’t going to want to sleep with you. That’s nobody’s fault. That’s life. There’s winners and losers, and I’m afraid sir, as far as sex goes, in the gay community, you are a giant, small loser. Sorry.”
Others on the far-right including anti-transgender pundit Jordan Peterson previously called for the “redistribution” of sex.
McInnes has previously described transgender people as “gender n***ers” and “stupid lunatics,” claimed that “sexless, depressed, old, chubby dykes control the political narrative,” and insisted that closeted gay men “tend to be sociopaths.”
