Gavin McInnes Can Get Back To Antifa After He Battles His Neighbors - 2019-01-04
Some local residents, who asked that their names not be published for fear of retribution from McInnes, said they weren't aware of his status as leader of a neo-fascist organization until several Proud Boys made national headlines in October for attacking protesters in Manhattan. They were charged with assault and rioting, and McInnes' neighbors began to take notice, as The Daily Beast reported at the time.
Today, there are signs dotting lawns in McInnes' neighborhood that read, "Hate Has No Home Here." They're passed out by local religious organizations and displayed proudly by locals.
"We stand together as a community, and violence and hate are not tolerated here," one resident told HuffPost. "Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but Gavin? What he's doing is a radical departure from discourse. He makes a conscious decision to incite violence and hate. We have our sign up because we want people to know this is a safe and friendly home."
