Far-right Proud Boys founder bitterly complains after being shunned by liberal neighbors: ‘I blame Soros!’

Published

on

Gavin McInnes, the Trump-loving founder of the far-right Proud Boys organization, has been bitterly complaining in recent months that his liberal neighbors in a wealthy New York suburb do not like him.

The Daily Beast’s Kelly Weill reports that McInnes has been heard regularly whining about the people in his neighborhood who want nothing to do with him — and he blames none other than liberal billionaire George Soros for his struggles.

“I blame Soros for all of this,” McInnes recently told InfoWars founder Alex Jones. “Soros is terrorizing me and trying to shut down my fraternal club, the Proud Boys. And he’s paying people to mess with my life, and spread these lies about me, spread fake news.”

One of the alleged hardships McInnes has had to endure was having his application to a local country club sabotaged by a fellow golfer whom he said mocks his involvement with InfoWars.

Additionally, McInnes has told Jones that his proud love for President Donald Trump results in him getting disgusted looks on the streets wherever he goes.

“I see whispers all the time,” the Proud Boys founder explained. “I’m walking down the street and a housewife goes like she’s finally seen Hannibal Lecter walk by. And what is the horror? The horror is that I like Trump, and that if I like Trump I might be conservative.”

After the infamous street brawl between Proud Boys and left-wing demonstrators at New York’s Metropolitan Republican Club, several of McGinnes’ neighbors also started planting “Hate Has No Home Here” signs on their front lawns to let him know he wasn’t welcome in their community.

Why the novel coronavirus became a social media nightmare

Published

on

The biggest reputational risk Facebook and other social media companies had expected in 2020 was fake news surrounding the US presidential election. Be it foreign or domestic in origin, the misinformation threat seemed familiar, perhaps even manageable.

The novel coronavirus, however, has opened up an entirely different problem: the life-endangering consequences of supposed cures, misleading claims, snake-oil sales pitches and conspiracy theories about the outbreak.

So far, AFP has debunked almost 200 rumors and myths about the virus, but experts say stronger action from tech companies is needed to stop misinformation and the scale at which it can be spread online.

A back-flip from US President Donald Trump on quarantining New York highlighted the panic and confusion across many parts of the world in trying to contain the pandemic, which has seen more than a third of humanity placed under unprecedented lockdowns.

More than 30,800 deaths had been reported worldwide by Sunday, according to a Johns Hopkins University tally, as the virus continued to leave a devastating imprint on nearly every aspect of society: wiping out millions of jobs, overwhelming healthcare services and draining national treasuries.
