Gavin McInnes Whines His Fellow Rich Neighbors Dont Like Him - 2018-11-13
"I blame [George] Soros for all of this," McInnes said during a September broadcast of Infowars, on which he bemoaned what he claimed was his supposedly degraded social status. "Soros is terrorizing me and trying to shut down my fraternal club, the Proud Boys. And he's paying people to mess with my life, and spread these lies about me, spread fake news."
McInnes, 48, built his profile as a New York media provocateur. As co-founder of the media company Vice, he was an architect of the ironic hipster culture of the early 2000s, a scene that sometimes gave him cover for racist remarks that he defended as jokes before leaving Vice in 2008. Years later, in 2016, he began a new chapter in life: founding the Proud Boys—a violent, ultranationalist men's club—and selling his $2.5 million Brooklyn penthouse to buy a home in Larchmont, a tony Westchester County town 20 miles north of the city.
