One of the most dangerous people in a modern democracy is someone that enjoys making fun of the people in charge. A king can be generous with the jester, as no one doubts who is king. Even depots can be indifferent to criticism from the mobs, because they have no power. The rulers of a democracy have to pretend to respect public opinion, so they hate the jester. it’s why the liberal scolds are now going after TV jester Gavin McInnes, trying to de-platform him.
Gavin McInnes, chief creative officer of Rooster in New York, has been asked to take an indefinite leave of absence following the publication of a transphobic essay.
Published earlier this week on Thought Catalog, “Transphobia is Perfectly Natural” has at publication received 2,082 comments. It has also sparked a “Boycott Rooster” movement, with Tumblr and Twitter accounts asking followers to let Rooster clients—Vans, Red Bull, Fox Sports and others—know they will not support companies that work with McInnes.
“Gavin’s views are his own and do not represent those of the company or its members,” said a Rooster representative. “We are extremely disappointed with his actions and have asked that he take a leave of absence while we determine the most appropriate course of action.”
McInnes co-founded Rooster in 2010 as an agency that would make ads for people who hate ads. He has appeared in the shop’s work for Vans, most recently as the man who explains how to do absolutely everything.
Prior to that, he co-founded Vice Magazine. McInnes has made controversial comments publicly before, with essays on Thought Catalog and contributions to Fox News. Though, due to the tone of his work, some are unsure if it is meant to be taken seriously.
McInnes could not be reached for comment.

By the “community” they mean entitled weirdos and deviants.
The fact is we have reached some sort of tipping point. Sex is a biological reality, not a social construct. Humans are either male or female and that’s determined by genetics, not “assigned at birth.” The people butchering themselves to change their sex are not doing anything but butchering themselves. They suffer from a form of mental illness and should be treated as such. Apotemnophilia is treated as a mental disorder and that’s not materially different from what the “trans” people suffer.
Of course, this is not about biological reality. It is about fanatics trying to force their morality on the rest of us. This pagan cult we call liberalism is no different from the Muslim lunatics running Iran. They lack the ability to behead heretics in public, but that is not a permanent condition. Since they cannot murder McInnes, they will do the next best thing and that’s ostracize him. If he loses his job, they know the next guy will censure himself so as to avoid the same fate.
This madness cannot hold forever. Boys cannot become girls and two guys playing house is not marriage. If these obvious realities cannot be spoken in public, what other realities must be ignored? At what point does this disconnect from observable reality become untenable? When do normal people stop ignoring these lunatics and begin to push back? Or, are we headed for the same fate as Iran?
The truth is, this sort of thuggery always leads to pushing around the wrong person, who then shoots one of the thugs. The thugs then ramp up their pogroms and more thug-murderers are born. Create enough people with nothing left to lose and they stop abiding by the rules that permit you to push them around. The only way forward is the intolerance we see in a place like Iran. The mullahs must always be paranoid of the people, else risk their revenge.
