Co-founder of Vice says he hates Jews in rage filled rant

He suggests that Jews are not grateful enough to America for defeating Nazi Germany.

    Gavin McInnes, the co-founder of youth-oriented news outlet Vice, has filmed a rage filled video about how much he hates Jews.

    In a YouTube video labelled “10 Things I Hate About Jews” Mr McInnes lists a variety of apparent irritations, from terrible driving to Jewish food and Ivrit, which he describes as “spit talk”.

    He continues:  the “whole language is clearing your throat, it’s like Gaza, they’re launching little tiny missiles from your mouth onto your shirt.”

    In the video, the writer, who left Vice in 2008 and now hosts his own show on Compound Media, accuses Israelis, of having a “whiny paranoid fear of Nazis that’s making them scared of Christians and Trumps who are their greatest allies”.

    He also suggests that Jews are not grateful enough to America for defeating Nazi Germany.

    “Sorry we didn’t do it in time, but we still saved you. It’s like a black guy going ‘yeah white people did slavery’… well they didn’t start it but they did end it… so maybe be a little more positive about it?” he says.

    The video, for Rebel Media, was retweeted with approving comments by far right notables including David Duke and Richard Spencer. Its title has now been changed to “10 Things I Hate About Israel,” and it has reached over 60,000 views.

    Mr McInnes has been in trouble before for making controversial statements about transgender people and Muslims.
