I know you guys have a little feud going on, but you should probably read up a bit more on McInnes' history. It seems a bit off the mark to accuse him of "recent conversion to the altright" and "cosplaying in the alternative right for a year".

It's well known that McInnes got squeezed out of VICE ten years ago for basically going crypto-Nazi and falling out with his liberal co-founders. In 2004 (when McInnes was still in control) VICE printed a debate between Jared Taylor and a British neo-nazi. In 2003 he told the New York Times: ''I love being white and I think it's something to be very proud of. I don't want our culture diluted. We need to close the borders now.''

So he's obviously been dabbling in far right ideas for some time now, dancing around the line of what's socially tolerable. For a media guy, that's about the most you can ask for - if he went full 1488, he'd simply be cut off from all access to media. He's far more useful as someone who can push boundaries in the mainstream media than as a disgraced outcast. To attack him for not being sufficiently purist seems to me like dumb shit the left would pull - targeting people who are actually pretty close to you ideologically, rather than your real enemies.

Excellent comment.

What many people on our side often don't understand is that in some cases, depending on the situation, the White cause can better be advanced by NOT speaking 'the whole truth', as a way of making the message more acceptable to its intended audience.

If here were only not saying some things, there wouldn't be an issue.

Gavin is doing a lot more than not saying some things. He's pushing against cultural successes. He's consistently saying certain things are too far in a way that is so inside baseball that there's no way it's accessible to a wider audience-- he's saying it only to us.

It's not just cuckservative, the man is talking down to gamergate which is by far the single biggest siren bringing people into the folds of white nationalism. More people have been converted in the past year by things like images of Anita Sarkeesian being rendered as a happy merchant than were in the three before it. I don't think he's genuine. He seems to be operating specifically on the wrong side of the A/B test. Whenever we have a victory, Gavin says we're doing the wrong thing. That exudes deception.

A real shame, but I agree. This guy is basically now a force acting to demoralise and distract the altright. I'm 29 and a law student from Sydney and far from shitlordistic but Gavin has pushed the cucking too far. How can you treat weev, or Taylor, or Anglin like shit man? These dudes are out there taking the hits and this dude is trying to ambush them on his show ? Guys its so simple, he has a Jew manager. Dissapointing I know.
