After being mocked at the White House Correspondents' dinner in April, for instance, conservative activist Matt Schlapp and his wife Mercedes walked out. The National Review compared those who protested Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh to a "mob", while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell accused Hillary Clinton of "unhinged tactics" after she said that "you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for."

So, naturally, it would make sense for the civility-loving Metropolitan Republican Club of New York City to invite Gavin McInnes, who founded a far-right group which regularly engages in street brawls and violence, to join them at a lecture Friday evening, where he'll "discuss historical context and offer perspective on the environment that surrounded Otoya Yamaguchi in 1960's Japan."
