Gavin McInnes: "I'm Not a Conservative"

Gavin McInnesArchive

I don't understand why I keep getting called a "conservative." I'm still the same anarchist punk I was when I was a teenager, and I have the tattoos to prove it.


You used to be called an egalitarian if you thought women deserved the same rights men do and gays should be left alone. Today you're called an "Islamophobe."

Back in the day, I was fighting fascism and communism.

And protesting against the government trying to regulate everyone's life.

And defending freedom of speech and equality and liberty and...

I want the government off of my white ass. I want the gays, hetero, enviros, blacks, greens, and pinks to get a life and leave me alone. I’m sick to death of taxes, fines and punishments imposed by lefty governments. How can an off leash fine be $200? Get rid of these bureaucrats. Whats wrong with being a libertarian? or a Conservative? Lets get everyone a gun so that the people around us play nice.

Ron Voss: you do know that for the last 50 years the government of Baltimore has been nothing but Liberal, right?

Yeah, I knew that.

Bingo !!
So true. So true.
Moronic lefty red fascist boobs with no clue about anything deciding they have the Marx given right to rule over us 24/7.

Yeah, Gavin, it’s all messed up to hell in a hand basket. If I ever get a watchdog I’m going to call him Gavin. I’m thinking a big Pibull or Rottweiler. He’ll have to have a good sense of the absurd. I might have to feed him meat.

Haha very cool rant, maybe the others don’t get the joke, but I do. All of us who want to make government smaller are conservatives. It doesn’t matter to what degree. Every conservative will have his own reasons and also their own ideal size of government. An anarchist is inherently a conservative. Glad to have you aboard! “The Man” is no longer the big companies, it is the unions, the media, the bureaucracies, and above all else, it is the judicial system with their [de]evolving definition of freedom.

I was kinda getting bored with the rant until the punchline. Then I laughed out loud.

This guy is too profane for me. Plus people are not equal. Everyone is different.

Gavin you are HANDS DOWN the best person on the planet. I’m so glad to see you with Ezra

When one considers the political spectrum, on the far left of the political scale you have 100% government and on the far right 0% government, that is, anarchy, which is no government. Evidence of the latter is seen in the recent riots in Baltimore.
Sorry, Gavin, according to my definition of a “conservative”, as someone who is opposed to excessive government interference in our lives, which in the extreme leads to socialism, communism and Nazism/fascism, all totalitarian forms of government, as you acknowledge at the end of your rant, you are a “conservative”, although somewhat less polished than Ezra. :-)
