Fighting “anti-fascist” protesters is fun

Gavin McInnesArchive

I was invited to speak at NYU and my friends and I were met by a bunch of violent "anti-fascists." I even got pepper-sprayed!


The student protesters were terrible, but in some ways the professors on the scene were worse, because they're the ones who made the students this way.

This isn't the first confrontation like this I've been in and I don't think it will be the last. I've come to believe that you have to fight back against these "antifa" social justice warriors.

Even if you lose the fight, in a way, you still win.

(EDITOR'S NOTE: Do you agree with Gavin? Or has he finally gone too far this time? Tell us in the comments below!)

ANTIFA are getting more and more dangerous, the more they get away with. They are brainwashed mostly youth. Most of them are not fully developed men. They’re either scrawny little guys (with big mouths) or overweight who go down easy. Basically, They think they’re tough and have the upper hand but, they’re cowards. Had one beside me while at a march in Toronto against M103.
He’s yelling “Off our streets, fascist pigs”. I’ve lived in the GTA for 74 yrs and no little puke was going to say “His” streets. I yelled back at him saying as loud as I could “MY STREETS”. He looked shocked and moved on. Problem is, now some of them are carrying knives so got to watch out for weapons.

Gavin the first thing you and your security crew might want to consider carrying is a DIY OC spray decontamination kit if you are going to be around these antifa idiots. You can keep the kit in a backpack and it shouldn’t cost you more than $30 total. Here are the contents – 3 bottles of Johnson & Johnson No More Tears shampoo, a small battery operated fan, a couple of dry towels, three stackable cheap plastic containers (wide and deep enough to put your face into and swish back and forth) and one small bottle of Natural Balance Tears. If sprayed rinse out the eyes with a bottle of water, then fill the three plastic containers with water, putting the no tears shampoo in the last two containers. Use the first container as a second rinse (water only) to get the OC spray out of your eyes and off your face by swishing your face back and forth. Go to the second two and repeat the process keeping the eyes open. Use a clean dry towel to dry the face and to pat the face to soothe the burning sensation. Use the fan to cool your face and eyes so that they will not start involuntarily closing, and use the Natural Balance Tears as needed to deal with irritation. Don’t waste your money on Sudecon wipes, they are worthless. Also when you shower later, make sure you are bent over, with your eyes closed and shower with your underwear on! If not the residual OC spray will run down into your crotch and it will reactivate, and that burning in your eyes will be nothing compared to having OC spray activated in your crotch (I know this from experience)!!

Also if you and your security detail decide to carry OC spray, forget about the bear sprays and the cheap rape repellent that people buy at the average gun store or Walmart. Those are irritants only and they won’t shut you down (this is why protesters carry milk with them, because most of the stuff the cops use for crowd control are diluted and used as a way to disperse the crowd, not shut them down). Get an Mark IV LE unit, 2,000,000 SHU’s (Scoville Units) or higher such as Vexxor, Sabre Red, or Fox – Fox 5.3 is preferred because it is 5, 3000,000 SHU’s. Also avoid any spray that has a conical or mist pattern when sprayed – you want a straight jet of spray to hit your target accurately. In most states you will have to get OC certification to obtain these, check with various security companies in your area they can get you certified and trained for a fee.

Please stay safe, we need guys like you more than ever

Return the favour, but use the anti bear attack pepper sprays. Much stronger than the ‘human’ variants, and sprays 20-30 feet, catch most of the anti-fa crowd in a single go. Then they can go cry in their parents basements.

You rock Gavin McInnes. I always listen to you, you tell it like it is, you spice it with some Real language and you’re observations are dead on. Keep fighting the good fight. Today you turned a ridiculous situation into humour. Great.

Who the fu*k is actually asking the question, “Has he finally gone too far this time?” Seriously? Who the fu*k is the Editor here?

Hello Gavin, thanks for standing up for conservative values, and finally showing the left some resistance. My wife always steps on my toe when debating the left, and I always tell her it’s our duty… they are so used to not being challenged, if more conservatives finally start sticking up for them selfs, the left would think twice before spitting out more tripe. And maybe the silent other half might not be so silent after all… I don’t like milo but he had one thing right “the left can’t tolerate anyone who doesn’t agree with them”…. how can we debate and have free speech….. we’ll Gavin you might be onto something

Yep, staring down these twerps is fun, they are chickenshit and they know it.

Well, I saw the NYU debacle on video and was very impressed with Gavin. Gavin trying to speak amidst the cacophony of chanting, glassy-eyed borg even after being pepper-sprayed, Gavin calling out Land Rover boy, who chose the safer option of remaining with the collective, and Gavin telling the university administrator that he was a dumb liberal asshole. The “professor” outside losing her marbles with the cops was high comedy. But there’s such a danger of this kind of behaviour rubbing off on the increasing numbers of mentally-available blank slates walking around. We see it happen daily–so many new borg. In an effort to stem the tide, if there ever is retribution by conservatives, it will be the shortest fight ever and could result in much carnage. And I fear for the borg because they are so young and have been massively duped into becoming dangerous (older ones get zero sympathy and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law for inciting riots).

Another George Soros organized disruption event. Spray them with glitter and you can follow them wherever they go. It sort of spoils their cover. And speaking of cover, where does this Soros hang out? Does he have a submarine like Captain Nemo? A lair hidden in a volcano? It’s like he is a real live Blofeld with no 007 to catch him and spoil his evil plots.
I’m a little confused about the terms these people shout out. Is neo-Nazi the same as fascist? Or is it just them showing off their intellect and wide range of vocabulary? Neo -Nazi fascist sexist homophobe islamaphobe pig. That pretty well covers whatever a human being can be and it’s only Monday. I’ll have to work harder to become even more deplorable if I’m going to fight these people.

The totally out of control professor needs to be arrested and locked up in a cool down cell. Or charged with treason against American constitutional values.
Or shot grave yard dead to make the world a safer, saner, more morally intelligent place.

First off, good times Gavin, wakes up the Saxon warrior in us, no one who is invited to speak on campus should have to endure potential lethal engagement with a riotous mob, self defense is fine, but the battle is not on the campus parking lots , it’s in the dean’s office.

If you are invited on campus then campus officials are responsible for your safety and those going to hear you.

My advice is punching is a last resort – sue the bolshie bastards who enable this crap and cause some firings and keep doing until the stink of bolshy red brigades gets to Washington and the funding gets cut to universities who will not protect free speech or the safety of speakers and the core of this radicalization in bolshevik degree programs is no longer publicly funded.

You seem rattled Gavin – calm down and get even the smart way – you were correct the mealymouthed pxxk who was enabling uncivil conduct was as guilty as zombie mob of creating an unsfe enviroment.

SUE – sue big and sue often.

Was that Elizabeth May playing the professor ?

Gavin is a bit of a loose cannon but I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on stuff like protests aka engineered riots. Keep your head down Gavin, these leftards are getting crazier every day.

Gavin , keep up the good fight , i love when i see you destroy the pansy snow flake brain dead lefties .

Don’t remove the mask, pull it down hard like a reverse wedgy. Then use the mouth covering to hide any trace of your finger nail pattern when you apply the one handed eagle claw suffocation hold covering his mouth and nose simultaneously until he collapses from amnoxia.

Once the leftards start suffering casualties the police will get more motivated to provide safe passage.

Then again….on second thought….after that surge of fight/ flight adrenaline and a good mind clearing deep breath and reflecting on consequence……would it have really wounded your pride that much to go in the side door like MILO does?….you are getting to be a bit old to be a punk rocker..

Dear Editor; What are asking? Have the balls to make your own decisions. Hang in there Gavin.
commented 2017-02-06 19:38:00 -0500
Gavin is CORRECT in so far as the right must learn to stand up for themselves and fight back. The left has been allowed to bully the right by slandering them, character assassination, physical assault, etc. Past time to call them on their slander, sue for character assassination, and protect yourselves when assaulted. The pendulum of tolerance has swung too far allowing the left to break the law. Law and Order must be brought to bear on the left. Stop attempting intelligent conversation as most of the left simply regurgitate rhetoric they’re fed with no thought behind it. Accountability is required and it is long past due.
Law and Order. Take it back. “How dare you”, yells the professor. Gavin should have yelled back “How dare you threaten our Civility?”
As a last thought, I would be interested to see the “authorities” be held accountable for failure to enforce Law and Order. There is no excuse.

First, if the cowardly, regressive left is resorting to pepper spray, learn to fight through it. Part of combat training…you know the direction it comes from and you attack hard. The ones using it are cowards and will not expect it. Pepper spray is a shock the first time, but not the second time when you now know you can live through it. So just attack the assaulting a-hole with intent to teach him that too much pepper is bad for his well being.

Second, no I do not disagree with Gavin. Be peaceful, but if the regressive left wants to go down the path of violence then finish the fight. If that happens enough times, the cowardly left will reconsider their tactics.

Third, as per an earlier post on another story, have the back of the alt-media. They are the front line.

Fourth, why the question Rebel? If McInnis is pulled, then what do you stand for? Fox North in Fox’s new persona?

I know what you mean Gavin. When I watch the vids of the protesters I feel like wading in to the fray with a high powered cattle prod in each hand and just having at it. It would be glorious. :-)
