"Defending Western Civilization" is a dog whistle for white supremacy

The latest news about The Proud Boys in Raw Story:

Civil war brewing inside Proud Boys as top leader says he’s done pretending he isn’t a Nazi

It begins:

The far-right Proud Boys gang has long denied that it is a white nationalist organization and has instead claimed that it only exists to defend “Western Civilization.”

However, Newsweek reports that some members of the group are ready to openly embrace being a racist organization and are dropping any pretenses of wanting support of non-white people.

And ends:

(Kyle Chapman) also made clear that he believed talk of defending “Western Civilization” was really just a racist dog whistle all along.

“We recognize that the West was built by the White Race alone and we owe nothing to any other race,” he wrote.

"the West was built by the White Race" is the most likely reason Quillette staff member and obvious racist Bo Winegard and his brother Ben Winegard declare their love for "the West" and "Western Civilization" in their Twitter profiles.

So what are the connections between the Proud Boys and the Intellectual Dark Web?

There are likely more. 

Speaking of McInnes - he likes to portray himself as a decent family man victimized by the Left, often mentioning his wife - who appears to be as extremist as he is - but McInnes made a less than wife-guy appearance in the latest issue of The Atlantic, Why the Alt-Right’s Most Famous Woman Disappeared:
(Lauren) Southern finished on set and ordered an Uber to the airport for her flight home to Toronto. Partway through the ride, her phone rang. It was McInnes. Southern listened to him closely for a few seconds.

“We shouldn’t be talking about this at all,” she said, laughing uncomfortably. Then her face tightened. “See, the thing is, because my moral compass tells me you have a wife and kids, it’s not even in my realm of consideration.” McInnes, according to Southern, had just reiterated an offer he’d made the night before, when she’d been out with him and a group of other far-right friends: “You know you want to fuck me; I’m your childhood hero.”

(When reached for comment, McInnes stated, “As a married man, I have never sexually propositioned Lauren Southern or any other woman.”)

With a grimace, Southern hustled him off the phone. She was speechless for a moment. “Send help,” she said feebly. “Help.”
But really considering how incredibly misogynist Gavin McInnes is - and I don't mean he hates feminists I mean he despises women and especially women's bodies (McInnes is obsessed with ovaries) - you have to wonder what the hell is wrong with Gavin McInnes' wife.
